|As I told you on the phone I had been looking long and hard for just the right Marine Corps ring to have made or to just purchase. When I found your web site and noticed the many custom rings you had on it I was intrigued. The design you had was more to my liking than any other Marine ring I could find anywhere. |
By adding the high grade of rubies in the background I felt was a great Idea on your part. During the time you were making the ring, we kept the communication line open on each step of the ring's birth. As each day went by I got more excited and could hardly contain my excitement to get the ring on my finger.
I received the ring today and once I had opened the box it was in I was in total shock. I sincerely mean this David. I was so excited to see the Masters Artwork in this ring that I sat down and yes, I cried. NEVER Sir, have I had such a work of art on my hand. This Marine Ring is a masterpiece of fine art and craftsmanship from a Master Jeweler. The rubies ARE like droplets of Blood and glisten in the sun like they are fire.
As a Marine I feel so proud to show this most excellent ring to all who I know and those I meet everywhere. David, you have to be proud of yourself for this extraordinary Marine Ring you have created. I thank you from the bottom of my heart; you must know that mire words can't explain the happiness that I feel now and will always.
I encourage any marine or Service member, retired or not to have your ring made by INGRASSIA & SONS. Once you have your ring on your finger there is nothing like it anywhere. It's the finest Ring out there period! With my deepest gratitude David I thank you.
Sincerely and again with Deepest Gratitude,

I have been looking for a career (fire dept.) ring for over two years, but found nothing that I cared for, till I found BOLDMILITARYJEWELRY.COM while searching the internet. The rings had the detail and style I had been looking for in a ring. I called Ingrassia & sons, and the rest is history. I have a custom made ring that is unbelievable, It's AWESOME! I was kept informed throughout the whole process. They even e-mailed me pictures of the ring at different stages as it was made. I saw the finished product before it was delivered, and as good as it looked in the pictures, it looked 100 times better on my finger.

My submarine officer's ring arrived this morning. It is a BEAUTIFUL ring!!! The ring is really exceptional. The design is unique in that it has the double dolphins on it in a disply which you could not find on any other ring. If you are ever in northern California please give us a call and maybe we can meet.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for making my beautiful submarine ring in 18K gold and platinum. I have been enjoying it for the past couple of months.
The workmanship is absolutely beautiful. I have been looking for a good quality ring with the submarine insignia but was not happy with anything that I looked at until I saw this one advertised in the American Submariner magazine. The photo does not do it justice. I love this ring. I get compliments on it all the time, even though a lot of people do not realize what the insignia even means.
I was concerned if it would be uncomfortable to wear due to the size and weight of the ring. It turns out these concerns were completely unfounded as the ring is so comfortable that I don=E2=80=99t even notice it on my finger.
I could not believe how fast you were able to deliver it to me after I ordered this custom piece. Thanks again for creating such a wonderful product. Did I mention I LOVE THIS RING.
I purchased a custom made police ring from Ingrassia & Sons Jewelers back in September of 2004. The shank was 14k yellow gold and the shield was 14k white gold. This is the best ring I have seen and is way better than David explained to me. The craftsmanship is superior and a very excellent job in making this ring. David will call you each step of the way in the making of a ring and will send you e mail pictures of the ring and nothing is done until you approve each step in making a ring. I am very very happy with this ring and pleased that I found Ingrassia & Sons on the web site. Great job well done David thank you.

Hello, I have been wearing my submarine ring now for about 4 days. All my shipmates that I show it to is amazed at how big and how detailed it is. I am not big on wearing jewelry but I love this ring. Ingrassia and Son were very nice and answered all questions. The quality of the ring is definitly worth the the money.

I recently ordered one of these rings from the advertisement in the American Submariner magazine. I couldn't be happier with the finished product. I got one made in 10k yellow gold with 14k white gold Dolphins. The contrast is spectacular and make the Dolphins outstanding. The size is larger than all others I have seen so if you want to make a bold statement of your pride in being a 'Brother of the 'Phin' then this is the ring for you.

The ring arrived safely in this afternoon's mail. It is just superb-my imagination and the photos couldn't begin to describe it. The detail, fit and engraving are perfect. Thank you so very much for all your craftsmanship and effort in making this beautiful ring for me. Please use me for a reference/recommendation anytime. Final check in the mail on Friday. Best wishes to you and yours for a Happy Thanksgiving!

I picked up the ring today at the Post Office. It really IS beautiful and the presentation box is wonderful. I can hardly wait to give it to Larry. Now that I actually see the ring I understand what you mean about the picture not doing it justice. The detail is phenomenal and the workmanship is outstanding. Your craftsmanship goes hand-in-hand with your personalized service. I truly thank you for both. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and your jewelry.
Today I received the three Aardvarks brooches that you designed and cast for me in gold with diamonds for the eyes.
To say that I am pleased is an understatement. They are beautiful and truly a work of art. In the beginning I was somewhat leery of giving this much responsibility of developing the concept, designing and casting of the original brooch to someone I had never met.
But after talking with you on the telephone I soon realized that you had the ability, had a quality firm, and was really interested in providing me with a quality product at a reasonable price. My congratulations to Ingrassia and Sons and I wish you continuing success.

Dave, I got the ring last night as I was pulling in the driveway. I can't begin to tell you how Awesome it looks. My wife said she was skeptical seeing it online but now that she sees it in person it looks so nice. I am quite impressed with it. The whole experience has been great from the start and I will gladly pass around your cards. Thanks again shipmate for everything. It will be in my family for many generations to come.

Magnificent, beautiful, outstanding - no picture could do it justice. You do excellent work. I am sorry I did not get to meet you.Your work will be advertised with pleasure. Did I mentioned I like it.
|Dave; I received my ring this afternoon and I couldn't be more pleased. pictures on the internet cannot do it justice. It is likely the most impressive piece of jewelry I have ever seen. The quality and workmanship are outstanding. I appreciate the fact that you convinced me to go with the 18 Karat and Platinum option. I will only have one Navy ring, and I am glad I went with the best possible option. I am proud of my Navy career and 30 yrs of service to the country, and this ring will make that statement for me where ever I go. Thank you for your service and for your outstanding workmanship|

want to take this time to thank you for the superb workmanship you put into the Force Recon ring I ordered. I could not have been more pleased. You far exceeded anything that I was expecting. The quality and workmanship is second to none I’ve seen. The picture advertisement in Leatherneck did not do it justice. Hope to do business with you again in the future. Again I thank you and applaud you on your design, quality, and workmanship. (Bravo)
Sincerely and many thanks,

David,I received my Subfarer Watch this week. WOW....what a presentation.
The watch comes in a beautiful mahogany box that is first class. Upon
opening the box I was blown away. The picture on your web site does not do
this watch justice. The first thing that jumps out is the stainless steel
links, massive and gleaming. The face is incredible with the Dolphin logo
set on an exquisite black face. This is indeed the greatest and finest
timepiece I have worn. Having been a Navy Diver I appreciate the fact that
it is tested to 660 feet. I have had Rolex and a Zietner but this is my
watch now. I have had many compliments thus far in these last few days. You
have crafted a timepiece that is in keeping with the highest standards,
heritage and excellence that is the United States Submarine Force. This
watch epitomizes "Dolphin Pride" You have gone above and beyond my
expectation. I am now a faithful customer.Dave Arzani, TM1 (SS/DV)

I am a Navy Chief stationed in Afghanistan. I just got my SUBFARER in. The
presentation is terrific. The watch just looks fantastic. It has a very
solid feel. I am not a watch connoisseur, but it was well worth the money
for what it represents and means to me. This Submariner can't wait to get
this SUBFARER back to the boat. You have a winner on your hands.

I have always wanted a quality watch like a Rolex Submariner, but couldn't afford one. The Time Service International watch I purchased from Ingrassia & Sons is the affordable, quality watch I have been looking for. It is a handsomelyrugged, extremely unique watch, that I find easy to operate. And the mahogany storage box that it comes in is a work of art.
I HAVE RECEIVED THE 'MARINE CORPS' PENDANT THAT I PREVIOUSLY ORDERED FROM YOU. VERY FEW TIMES IN LIFE DOES ONE BUY SOMETHING, 'SITE UNSEEN', THAT SURPASSES ONES EXPECTATIONS WHEN IT ARRIVES. THIS WAS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE EXCEPTIONS.I AM STILL AMAZED AT THE QUALITY OF WORKMANSHIP THAT YOU PROVIDE.
THANK YOU AND SEMPER FI!
