We recently celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary and to mark this very special occasion we commissioned Carolyn to make a birthstone pendant. From the very first meeting Carolyn was fantastic to deal with, she arrived at our home with the design drawn out and showed us what it could look like with the sample birthstones she brought with her. Carolyn communicated with us regularly with progress reports and delivered the pendant on our Anniversary Day. We are absolutely thrilled with the finished product and would not hesitate to purchase more jewellery from Carella Jewellers.
I would like to say Thank You to Carolyn at Carella Jewellers for the wonderful service I received in completing my bridal set which I have had for 23 years!! The new ring she made is perfect, makes the set look brand new. The service I received was very professional, from our initial meeting, she knew exactly what I wanted, and delivered it to perfection. I would not hesitate in recommending Carolyn to any of my family or friends who want that special handcrafted piece of jewellery. Thank You!
To Carella Jewellers,
I have just had made a custom wedder set by Carolyn, and I am so happy and pleased! There aren't words enough to convey how fantastic she is, and how fantastic the work she does is. Carolyn listened and was interested and cared about what I wanted and where I was coming from (unlike other jewellers). Her communication through the process was more than adequate, always going that one step more to ensure complete satisfaction. With Carolyn you are guaranteed an original piece that is of the HIGHEST quality. I am so satisfied with the process of the wedders that Carolyn and I are currently designing another ring!!! I will always go to Carolyn from now on. I value her opinion, integrity, morality, honesty, flexibility and genuine kind hearted nature. So once again a HUGE thankyou from the bottom of my heart!

I cannot say enough good things about Carella Jewellers... Carolyn you do a fantastic job, and we are thrilled with our engagement ring. It was worth the wait. I have never been a fan of diamonds and you didn't try to sell me on diamonds being “a girls best friend”, you worked with me on what I wanted.
My initial ideas were quite different to what I ended up wanting and the results are spectacular. You had patience when I changed my mind on the stone and worked hard to source ethical stones and gold which was also important to us.
My new ring is so shiny; I can see my face in the gold, it is beautifully polished. I love the way you went the extra step with giving us a cleaning cloth and care instructions (I would have been lazy and taken my ring to a ultrasonic cleaning machine, which is fine for other stones but not for a tourmaline).
Thank you ever so much for making our Wedding Day the best day of our lives. Without the beautiful rings that you have made for us, our day would not have been complete! I get compliments everywhere I go with my rings and everyone always asks me who made them. I would recommend you to anyone. You are a lovely and understanding person who listened to what I was wanting. Anyone who wants individual style and beautifully designed jewellery that is one of a kind would be crazy to not come to you! Thanks again for my beautiful rings!
Recently my wife and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary. As this wedding anniversary is sapphire, I wanted to get a present in keeping with the theme of the event. This is when I thought of Carolyn from Carella Jewellers. I approached her and asked if she had on hand any sapphires which she could make into a pendant. She was very obliging and brought around some parti sapphires with some sketches showing how she could mount the stones for a pendant.
I chose one of the sapphires that I liked and discussed with her various designs for the stone setting. We decided to mount the sapphire inside a heart-shape made of 9ct gold. After completing the pendant Carolyn sent me a photo of the necklace for my approval. I was very happy with the work that Carolyn put into the design and manufacture of a unique custom-made jewellery item for our wedding anniversary.
My name is Jan Chopping and I live in Rockhampton. Recently I asked Carolyn (Carella Jewellers) if she could replicate a ring which I had brought overseas and which was silver plated and the plating had worn off. I wanted the ring made in gold. Not only did Carella Jewellers do a superb job of the new ring, Carella Jewellers also had the existing ring replated for me. I am very happy with the results and the fact that I was kept up to date with what was happening as the job progressed. I was so impressed with the finished work I have now commissioned Carella Jewellers with another piece, this time a solid bangle, which I am sure will also have outstanding results for me. Local is best and I can assure you any jewellery in Carella Jewellers (Carolyn's) hands is in very honest and trustworthy hands. Total recommendation from me.
I have recently had six customised Jewellery pieces made by Carolyn and I am very pleased with her work. I had three rings and three pendants designed by Carolyn using Agates that were cut and polished by my late Grandfather so the stones had a great deal of sentimental value. I could not be happier with the care and attention Carolyn showed in her work and communicated with me on a regular basis to let me know the progress of each piece. Photos were also supplied and she was very prompt and helpful with the dispatching of the finished items. I would highly recommend Carella Jewellers to any potential customers. Carolyn has created something special that my Mother, sister and myself will treasure always :)
I would just like to say how happy I am with all my jewellery I have purchased from you. The pendant you made for my 60 th Birthday was very special to me. I love the way you surprised me with the 60 on the back of it. I can highly recommend you Carolyn for any special pieces or in fact any work needed. The time you give , the sketches you do and not just one sketch you keep going until it is what your clients want. I have seen first hand the work you create and most of all the time involved which you don’t get paid for. You are a very loving, caring person
and understand what your clients want and do not try to change their ideas in any way.
If you know their ideas are not going to work you explain fully the reason why.
I fully intend to keep purchasing from you in the future.
A very happy client.
To Carella Jewellers,
Thankyou so much for your support of our "Girls Nite In" to raise funds for Cancer Council Queensland towards the fight against Breast Cancer. With your support in the way of donating your time and silver, to make earrings and pendants For Sale on the night and also making the Boulder Opal Pendant for the Silent Auction. If that wasn't enough you also gave of your time on the night to come and man the selling of the jewellery. The jewellery was a real hit and sold well on the night. Carolyn it was with all your efforts that we were able to increase our amount raised on the previous year by $817. In 2011 we raised $1093 and in 2012 (with Carella Jewellers on board) we raised $1910 for Breast Cancer Research. Words can't really say how much I appreciate your help, enabling us to make a difference in the fight against Breast Cancer. Yours Faithfully,
Thank you I love it . It's so special to me, I'm so happy how you kept the original setting of the diamond that my boys picked for me. Now I can wear it with stressing I will lose it. Carolyn thank you for listening to how I wanted this made and customizing to my needs . I love it & I know I won't have to hold it like I used to when it was round my neck. Carolyn has done the most amazing job. Even my husband's happy as she kept the original setting he picked for me . Sentimental :)

I purchased a Locket & Bangle from Carella Jewellers and I love them, they are handmade and absolutely beautiful. I like that they are one off pieces and will never be made again. When I saw them I had to have them, its not just something I wanted, but something I just had to have! It's jewellery you can show off. People comment on them and ask me where I got them from. I will go back to Carella Jewellers again and again. I am over the moon with my purchases. My daughters already want to know who is going to get them! Thankyou Carolyn!
I commissioned Carella Jewellers to make a pearl ring and baby bracelet. With the pearl ring, I had a specific design in mind and Carolyn sourced the perfect pearl to make the ring and it turned out stunning. I had Carolyn make a baby bracelet for my son for his first birthday. I left the design to Carolyn and loved the end result, especially the cute elephant charm! Carella Jewellers met the brief perfectly on both occasions, had a great turnaround time and very reasonable prices. I will definitely be using Carella Jewellers for my future jewellery needs.
Hi, I got myself a parti sapphire dress ring for my 50th birthday from Carella Jewellers. It had a white gold setting & yellow gold band, engagement ring style. I showed Carolyn a ring I liked & asked her to make one the same. It was stunning, I was very happy with it. Since then I have asked Carolyn to make me a wide hammered silver bangle & a 60cm chain like one in the photos she showed me of jewellery she had made. I have been pleased with all my purchases from Carella Jewellers.
Carolyn was a legitimate dream come true to work with!!! I got this bracelet from my dad and his wife for my 21st birthday (18 years ago) it was in a very sad state the safety chain was broken, it was pretty much black and nothing I did to it returned it to its original beauty until I gave it to Carolyn .... She restored the bracelet and added charms and ensured it was secure enough to give to my daughter for her 18th birthday!! I will never ever go to anyone else with my jewellery needs she is a true master of her trade and worth every cent spent to ensure my beautiful daughter can pass this on to her daughter on her birthday, that is if she ever takes it off, it’s been on her wrist since the day it was given to her and that says a lot due to the fact she doesn’t wear jewellery on a daily basis! Thank-you a million times over it is still the most amazing gift she has ever received (her words)
I have recently received a necklace made by Carolyn as a gift. The intricate work is delightful; her meticulous care and attention to detail are evident. It has been noticed and remarked on whenever I wear it. I look forward to seeing more examples of her work and have had no hesitation in recommending her work to my friends.
I would just like to say a big thank you to Carolyn, who did a wonderful job on Anthony and my Wedding rings.. It makes them more special when they are specially made. We are very happy with them..., I would recommend Carolyn's workmanship to anyone.. Thanks again Carolyn...
I purchased the Double Infinity pendant today, I cannot rate this experience highly enough. The absolute quality and craftsmanship of the pendant is exquisite! The service is of the highest regard and Carolyn was a pleasure to deal with. I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase and will definitely be a repeat customer.
Just a short note to say thanks for the personal touch and professional service I recieved from you when purchasing a beautiful ring for my niece's 18th Birthday. I will be recommending Carella Jewellers to all my family and friends. Thankyou
Carolyn custom made my wedding ring to suit my engagement ring and it has come up beautifully. She was easy to work with and very friendly. Very happy with the price, timing and quality. Thank you Carolyn
I brought in my gold rings & earrings that were broken or missing bits & traded them in on a new ring. Carolyn used some of the diamonds that were in the old rings in my new ring. My husband also had a new wedding ring made, it had a brushed centre part & polished outside. We were both happy with our new rings. Thanks Carolyn.
Just a quick email to let you know the pendant was very well received by my wife, she loves it and it looks fantastic! You have done an excellent job and I am very pleased with the result. My wife is especially pleased with the unique nature of the piece and the way it symbolises our special day. It suits her very well too.
I'll be sure to recommend you to anyone looking for locally made jewellery and unique items!

It looks beautiful, you’ve done a fantastic job thank you and Michelle really loves it. Thank you too for being able to finish it off at short notice. Thanks again
Carolyn's attention to detail, ability to interpret and custom make from a design brief is excellent, I thoroughly recommend her services.
I like Carella Jewellers because they have different jewellery. It looks good, it wears well & I get lots of compliments. I will certainly purchase more jewellery from them. Also thankyou for the speedy service.
Carolyn, I love my ring and your work is beautiful. I really like the resetting of the stone. This ring will last anther 100 years. Roger is also very impressed with the quality of your work. Thanks heaps. May your business continue to grow and prosper as your good name becomes known.
As a medieval re-enactor I required a set of semi precious cabochon rings that are accurate replicas of original pieces found in 13th century manuscripts. Carolyn was able to reproduce a trio of rings for me that I am very proud to say are the highlight of my wardrobe. The quality of Carolyn's jewelry is superb. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a one off piece of top quality jewelry. My rings were made from my choice of her stones and the finished product is perfect for medieval re-enactment and everyday wear. I love her work, very professional.
Totally in LOVE with my new gold ring!! Thanks heaps to "Carella Jewellers" - check out the FB page, I guarantee you Carolyn Stevenson is the most amazing jeweller in Rocky - love her work (and did I mention, love my new ring xx)
My partner organised a Christmas pressie through Carella Jewellers and now we want our wedding bands from Carella Jewellers. Thanks so much Carolyn!
