“My husband proposed to me at five and a half thousand metres above sea level on the Anapurna Circuit in Nepal. We purchased our unusual gemstone, a tourmaline, from a gem merchant in Katmandu. Our engagement experience was very much unique and we wanted the engagement ring to be a testament to this. Nicole was wonderfully collaborative and creative. She was entirely committed to our desires and her subtle and elegant design reflects exactly what we had asked for. The ring is complimented everywhere we go and we feel special knowing that there is no other ring like it in the world."

"As an Australian now based in London, finding the right person to assist me in designing the perfect engagement ring for my wife-to-be was proving a daunting task. A mutual friend back home introduced me to Nicole, and the rest is history. I had some rather specific ideas on what I wanted to create, and Nicole (very patiently) took all of these things onboard and translated them into a piece more stunning than I had ever hoped for. Despite the distance between London and Sydney, Nicole was always available for emails or a late night/early morning phone call to ensure I was kept in the loop and that everything was completed on time and to the highest standards. The fact that we asked Nicole to help us complete our story by designing and making our wedding bands is a testament to what a seamless and enjoyable process it was working with her."
“My (now) husband Bob and I needed a lot of help and guidance when it came to designing my engagement ring, so we were very lucky to find Nicole to help us create such a beautiful ring. All we had was a diamond from Bob's grandmother's engagement ring, and some very vague ideas about an art deco aesthetic. Nicole was able to take these basic elements and develop a design that was absolutely gorgeous and exactly right for us both. Nicole's patience and creativity made the whole process of designing the ring a pleasure, and I couldn't recommend her more highly.”
"Nicole, we are thrilled with our beautiful engagement rings!
Thank you for your knowledge and advice through all stages of the design process. We are proud to wear such unique and personal fine jewellery pieces.
Naturally we've recommended you to all our friends."

“After Michael proposed with some loose diamonds and some hand-sketched designs by Nicole, we met with her to fine-tune the design. Not knowing a lot about fine jewellery, Nicole was patient and friendly in explaining different elements and made us both feel very comfortable and excited about the process – as we should be! The diamonds that Nicole helped Mike select are absolutely incredible – I cannot take my eyes off them! The ring is the most beautiful, unique and special piece of jewellery I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. It’s exactly what I pictured myself wearing as a symbol of Mike’s and my commitment to each other. I highly recommend Nicole Winkler Couture Jewellery to anyone who wants a high quality piece of jewellery, something special and unique – made just for yourself or your loved one.”
"I had a dream to celebrate a milestone birthday and finding success and happiness in my life, through transforming my aunt's ring she had given me many years ago into something new. Nicole took that dream and my very vague ideas and transformed them into what is the most stunning ring I have ever had the privilege of owning, it receives daily compliments so I know I'm not biased! I'm in Perth so communicating designs and ideas could have been fraught with difficulty, but Nicole made the whole process easy and effortless. One set of drawings was all she needed to magically transform my vague ideas into something so beautiful it makes me smile everyday just to see it on my finger"
