Peter did a superb job designing my engagement ring and, later, a matching set of wedding bands. Peter's artistry shines in every piece he designs. I just love my Indorf Bling!Read More
I first met the talented, creative and amazing Peter Indorf in 1978 when I was a first year graduate student at Yale Divinity School. My fiance (also at the Divinity School) and I went to his store on Chapel Street In New Haven, CT. Peter was quiet, thoughtful, soft spoken ...spoken with a great and ready sense of humor. I liked and trusted him immediately. We sat with him for over an hour and discussed our hopes and dreams for the engagement ring and for our future. My fiance presented Peter with a very old fashioned engagement ring and a not very great diamond that had been in his family.
Peter never once tried to 'up-sell' us or let us feel that the diamond was sub par. He treated us like royalty, valued and special clients and gave us lots of time and attention. We settled on a very 'modern' look (for the late 70's!) with a bezel set diamond placed on a wide engagement band in the soft-square format in white gold. He also crafted a simple but gorgeous band for my soon to be husband that matched the width of my wedding and engagement bands together. We received countless compliments over the years. We returned to Peter on the occasion of our fifth wedding anniversary and he created a matching and amazingly beautiful anniversary band set with tiny diamonds. I felt like a queen!
Peter is more than a superb designer and craftsman, he is an incredibly sensitive and humble human being. He brings his whole heart and spirit to his work and it shows! Over the years I went to Peter with other requests - please design a 3 diamond ring for my mother (she fell in love with Peter too!), please can you make me a beautiful opal (my birthstone) ring, please can you create a moonstone ring for me which was set with two sapphires. Over and over again the outcome of his work thrilled
Having survived five years after a diagnosis of the most aggressive type of breast cancer he designed an amazing pendant for me from his Cosmos collection. He engraved the back with a "5" as a constant reminder of what I'd overcome. I've worn it daily ever since.
Most recently, I found myself wanting to have a gorgeous 'statement' diamond ring using most of the family diamonds I had in my possession. Without a moment's hesitation, and even though he's 'officially' retired, he took on the project with joy! I'm eagerly awaiting the finished product in a few weeks and I know I'll be 'over the moon'.
I'm not someone who is particularly acquisitive or tied to 'things' with only one exception - jewelry by Peter Indorf. In Peter I discovered a true gentleman, a loving and generous human being who strives and succeeds in making every client happy beyond expectations!! I know this is a lengthy review but I have only touched on the highlights of my 40 year friendship and professional relationship with this gifted, creative, superbly talented and one of a kind artist.
Peter Indorf - I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the ways my life has been enriched by knowing YOU!
Hugs from Holly

Oh my - what a great job he did for us! He listened to our ideas, used all the pieces we'd given him, captured all the memories (and more) than we'd hoped for in the finished product. Starting with an unused tennis bracelet and my existing wedding ring, he designed ...he designed a spectacular ring that I'm so proud to showcase on his behalf! Definitely would highly recommend him to anyone who needs jewelry work done!

Our relationship with Peter spans 29 years. I met Peter through a friend who had a ring designed by Peter. When we became engaged Peter refurbished my grandmother's engagement ring to fit my fiancee's finger. We of course bought our wedding rings from Peter and they were beautiful. Virtually every ...Valentine's Day since then, I would drop by Peter's shop on either Chapel St. in New Haven or in Madison, CT to buy beautiful uniquely designed, usually rose or regular gold, earrings for my wife. Boy does she have a lot of earrings, but loves them all! Recently, we were in New Zealand and a bicycle accident caused the Trauma Ward to cut off both my wife's wedding ring and engagement ring. We brought the remains home and, knowing Peter was in FL, I called and made arrangements for repair. The rings were perfectly restored and look wonderful. This was done promptly and for a great price. Peter is imaginative, creative, very professional and a very nice man. As you can tell, he is associated with many great memories. I recommend him highly.Read More

I just had a ring refurbished and repaired which was one of Peters early pieces from when he was located in New Haven, CT Peters work, his communication and service was excellent. He kept me in the loop every step of the way and I am so happy to have ...my cherished ring back in such good condition. Thanks you Peter Indorf for such great and caring service.Read More

Hi Peter, Wendy really loved her new earrings. Like all of my previous purchases, they were unique and elegant; yours are her favorite pieces in her collection. My buying decision is simple: go to your site, find what I like and order. PI has always pleased her, and when she ...and when she is happy, then I am...thanks very much once again. I thought after you left Madison, and then Wendy and I moved as well, she'd lost the ability to buy your collection. Great to have you in your new location and on the web.

I spent months looking for a jeweler to reset my 10th anniversary solitaire marquis diamond. I wanted something modern, unique, low profile and with an east-west setting. I finally found Peter on the internet through a Pinterest post. What luck! I was quite nervous sending my diamond ring off to ...diamond ring off to someone I did not know. Peter was amazing, prompt and is an incredible artist. The finished ring exceeded my expectations as did the customer service. I am forever grateful.Read More
Peter, Sorry for not getting in touch with you sooner: the ring came as we were getting ready to dash off, and we have been hurtling along since. It is beautiful! Caroline and I both love it (see the attached picture, showing the ring you made for me years ago, ...re-instated, alongside hers). I'm sending the check tomorrow for the balance, so you should get it by week's end. Again, thanks so much for your patience and craftmanship: maybe it's "just a ring" in the day-to-day world, but in our universe it is a beautiful and moving testimony to our love.
I have to say you far exceeded my expectations! The ring is knock out, Melina is absolutely in love with it. It is more than eye catching. It has WOW, elegance, and class all bundled together and couldn’t have asked for it to be more perfect. Every single person that ...has seen it does almost a double take, like they look at it and say how beautiful, and then look at it again and say WOW.Read More
Got it yesterday and its still most beautiful ring in the world! Thx!
In 2011 I removed my wedding ring to clean it off and ended up losing it at a soccer game of my boys. Peter luckily had a photo of it from when he updated the setting for me. He made it as close as he could from the reference he ...had. It was lovely, but some things about it just didn't feel right to me. Fearing that I just wasn't going to be happy enough with it, he completely remade it from scratch again. He surpassed the original with this version and gave me the revised features I wanted as well. He made it more comfortable than the original was. No matter how long it took him, he made sure I was as enthused with this ring as with my original . I'd never go anywhere else.Read More

I picked it up and it fits Andy perfectly. I can’t thank you enough for your help in designing them and for the craftsmanship of the final products.
Peter: The ring is beautiful. So much so, that it made up for 15 years of neglect--I became a paragon of husbands overnight. Thank you-Read More
Peter created a family heirloom that will be cherished by me and future generations of women in my family. He is not only a highly talented artist but also a person of tremendous integrity. I give him my highest recommendation, with no reservations whatsoever.
Peter did a superb job designing and adding stones to my wife’s diamond anniversary ring — it is beautiful. Peter is friendly, knowledgeable and detail oriented. He did an excellent job and I plan on turning to him for future jewelry needs.

Just wanted you to know how pleased I was with the final product of the wedding & engagement ring “set.” This wedding ring was much more of a match, both in design and color, to my engagement ring & I’m glad the diamonds are back in. Both Frank & I ...are very pleased. Thanks for your patience & for working with me to get a design I could live “forever” with.Read More

Jordan has called me several times to tell me how happy he is. Thanks for all your help. He was really hoping you had that pencil drawing you created in New Haven. I hope you have it or maybe you can re-create the pencil art I have come to know ...for 30 yrs. Once again, thanks for carrying on a tradition. Now you need to meet my youngest son.Read More
