To Chris & the team at Metal Urges Fine Jewellery and Diamonds. Thank you for turning the most stunning diamond engagement ring of my dreams into a reality. It truly is a quality hand made ring & I’m receiving many compliments on its beauty. Your service, advice and friendly approach have been just outstanding. Will be back for our wedding rings for sure!

Metal Urges is so much more than just great jewellery. Chris provides a home visiting service, will take you out for coffee and even gives free comprehensive overseas travel advice. (I call him my travel guru!) Oh yeah… he also designed and made my gorgeous sapphire and diamond ring! Metal urges… it’s the complete package!!


Metal Urges came highly recommended to me. The total experience from first walking in the door to the completion of my new white diamond ring was immensely satisfying. Very professional, friendly and helpful.


I have only positive feedback. I absolutely love my two diamond and sapphire rings. I wear one every day—something I hadn’t done before. People constantly comment how beautiful they are and I have passed on the Metal Urges fine Jewellery website to many. I enjoy visiting the shop in Hobart. My only regret is that I can’t visit more often. Whenever I do, I enjoy the one on one consultation and attention. Metal Urges always has a friendly vibe and everyone is polite and takes an interest in you.

I love my blue sapphire—was going to wear it for special occasions but it’s like wearing a piece of the sky and why would I lock it up… just stunning!


We really appreciated your efforts to get Zoe’s diamond engagement ring exactly how we wanted it, which is why we are both still extremely happy with the ring. We have recommended Metal Urges fine Jewellery to a lot of people and we will most definitely be back in to get our wedding rings next year. The photo on Facebook is great but it looks far better in real life.


Chris and his team made the most beautiful ring for me. After a bad past experience I was thrilled to find a jeweller take so much pride in his work, and his customer service. It was made exactly to my requirements, Chris went out of his way to find the best stones. So glad I will have it forever. Thanks guys!

The blue/grey sapphire and diamond ring that Metal Urges made is still as beautiful as the day it was picked up from the boutique. It also still gains attention from all that see it. The ring is a stunning piece, we make sure that we tell everyone about Metal Urges.


Thank you for putting the image of my diamond pendant on the Metal Urges Facebook site. I love wearing it, the photo doesn’t do it justice! It’s an orb—the reworking of two diamond rings which I hadn’t worn for a long time. It’s fun and a bit different! It was also fun working with Chris designing the piece.


I’m extremely happy with my ring and have received a lot of compliments, particularly when signing credit card and sales people notice my fingers. I’ve recommended you to so many people hope Metal Urges is going well? I hope to see you soon as I have another ring I would like designed.


Chris & David, what can I say the re-makes of my wedding ring and Anniversary ring are stunning… I couldn’t be happier! The end result was well worth the wait. The care and craftsmanship is evident in all the pieces you have made for me.I am the lucky girl who gets to wear these beautiful diamond jewellery pieces everyday… thank you!

When first looking into a diamond engagement ring options in Hobart, the different factors and qualities of diamonds were very confusing. However Chris at Metal Urges simplified the whole process by explaining and only dealing with the highest quality diamonds which allowed us to focus on what we wanted. Once we talked with Chris, he and the staff at Metal Urges were able to create exactly what we were after and it is amazing. We couldn’t recommend Metal Urges highly enough!

I cannot speak more highly of Chris and his team of Tasmanian Jewellers! I first found Metal Urges Fine Jewellery & Diamonds when I had decided I wanted a mokume gane wedding Ring. I found that not many people are able to create beautiful looking mokume gane. Chris and his team at Metal Urges are certainly an exception; they are in a class of their own! Our wedding rings are something that we will treasure forever. Chris and his jewellery team were able to incorporate everything we wanted and provide helpful direction in the design process to ensure the finished product would last for many years to come with timeless beauty. We have certainly found a jeweller for life and could not be happier with our choice. To Chris and the Metal Urges Jewellery team, you have made a positive impact on our lives and we are forever in your debt, our rings are absolutely incredible and we cannot thank you enough!!

From the first time we visited Metal Urges Fine Jewellery & Diamonds to look at designs and their collection of stones, to the time that I received my individually designed diamond ring, the experience was first class! My diamond ring turned out absolutely perfectly and Chris’s advice during the design process was fantastic. Looking forward to my next purchase at Metal Urges when next we visit Tasmania and Hobart!


I’ve had my engagement ring for a week now and what a week it’s been. It was love at first sight but that love has slowly deepened with each day my finger is gently caressed by its beauty. I love its changing personality. When we’re staring at each other in the bathroom, it shines green, in the lounge a deep blue and just now it twinkles in a pale blue. I love its clean lines and modern look whilst at the same time it manages to look traditional. I love that I can see so much of the stone and I’m fascinated by how it sits in its setting. The contrast between white gold and yellow gold, and gold and sapphire is perfect and I love how it’s solid and durable whilst being refined and delicate.

I also, if possible, love Iain slightly more for giving it to me.

So thank you. And thanks for making the whole process easy and stress free. I feel a little proud that I chose the stone and design and it turned out so well.

We had a very short time frame in which to have our rings made. We knew the design we wanted and had tried a couple of places without success. One evening I sent an email, with a picture of our request, to Metal Urges and received a reply early the next morning. The email was followed up with a personal phone call and the process was underway. We were absolutely delighted with the prompt response and quick attention—particularly from Naomi and Chris: Metal Urges provide fantastic customer service. The rings were ready several days before our celebration which gave time for an adjustment had it been necessary (it wasn’t!) The transaction was completed by email and phone (wonderful when you live in a rural area) and we got the special rings which were exactly what we wanted. When people admire our rings it is lovely to be able to say they were “made in Tasmania by Al of Metal Urges”. We can’t recommend Metal Urges highly enough.

Thank you so much for the wonderful Akoya pearl earrings you made for our daughter… they were beautiful! One of the nice things about the experience was the way you and your staff helped us it was like we were having the crown jewels made… thanks!
