Testimonials

I adore Nadia's exquisite and truly unique jewellery. She has designed dress and engagement rings for myself and family. Nadia also redesigned an heirloom so that it could be divided between all the grandchildren. She is talented, creative and passionate and always makes the most amazing pieces.

Our dealings with Nadia, Rose & Sonja were next level. They instantly made us feel welcome & part of the furniture throughout the whole process. They were SO warm, lovely, dedicated & patient with us.

It was a very special experience getting my dream Yellow Sapphire Ring, even though we went in for a plain band for our wedding!

They sourced the most beautiful yellow sapphire and side diamonds promptly in during the month of November, the ring was made & they had the whole processed wrapped up by December, before the busy/shut down period for jewellers.

We absolutely loved that they opened a bottle of champagne on the day we went for the big reveal - I was in 7th heaven!!! The overall experience was truly wonderful!!

Thank you again ladies, you absolutely made this one of the most memorable moments of our life!

- Balmoral Babes

As a same-sex couple having someone who understood our relationship and the importance of our commitment to one another made for the perfect experience. From the initial stage of designing the engagement rings, Nadia's advice about how to carry the ring overseas without Natalie noticing so I could propose, to designing the wedding rings and sharing our plans for our Canadian wedding, Nadia was an integral part of our journey.

From the moment I entered the adorable shop in The Strand Arcade Nadia put me at complete ease. We talked through the options and Nadia guided me through the selection process - her professionalism and friendliness ensured I was totally relaxed, not rushed in any way, and at the end I was delighted with my selection. I highly recommend you visit Nadia for your next jewellery purchase!

Nadia is just amazing! Mondial provided a fantastic professional experience and assisted us to provide the perfect engagement, wedding, and 1 year anniversary! Nadia was always on hand to take us through every step, and create our dream pieces for our special day. Her attention to detail is impeccable and her creative and unique designs are just incredible!

Nadia and team were wonderful assisting my husband and I create both engagement and wedding rings. The whole process ran smoothly with Nadia guiding us through the design, and each session was an exciting step in the creation of our rings.

We are absolutely delighted with the final product and couldn’t be happier. The service and attention we received was always professional and friendly, and it felt like family! Thank you team

- Steve Minahan

I cannot recommend Nadia more highly, she is unbelievably skilled and helped me and my partner design my engagement ring from scratch. She was attentive in listening to our ideas, whilst orchestrating the perfect ring from a design perspective. She endeavoured to remain within our budget and didn’t compromise on quality or style. We ended up with the most incredibly beautiful and unique engagement ring, I couldn’t have asked for more. We went back for our wedding rings, and again she delivered a bespoke, individually designed ring for my husband which he is proud to wear every day. We love our rings and found Nadia so warm, knowledgeable and easy to work with.

- Vic H

Nadia's expertise, talent for design and attention to detail took our initial ideas, perfected them and brought to life our beautiful rings. We enjoyed the collaborative process and we're grateful for her patience as we worked through the design process. Everyday my engagement and wedding rings take my breath away.

Nadia was awesome. She asked all the right questions to make sure she knew exactly what we wanted, was patient with how particular we were, offered useful advice and was committed to using quality materials and craftsmanship. She was also really lovely. We couldn’t be happier with our rings and would definitely recommend Nadia to anyone looking at having custom rings made for their wedding or commitment ceremony.

As a guy that had no idea, and was gently and confidently guided by a warm and friendly Nadia, to an outcome of purchasing two items of beauty of which will glisten to the eternal sound of love every time we hold hands.

Nadia was an absolute delight to work with when we created a promotional video for her 10 year anniversary event. She is an absolute professional and her jewellery is exquisite to boot!

- Tanya Phillips

When my fiancé and I were looking for engagement rings, we stumbled into the Mondial store in the city. They were so fantastic, we never felt pressured or like we were asking too many questions.

We went away to think about it and ended up buying our wedding rings from them. When it came time to buy our wedding rings, we knew just where to go.

Incidentally we’ve also bought other pieces of jewellery and now refer to them as “Our Jeweller” like fancy people!

We also enjoy popping in for a chat and a window shop. I highly recommend Mondial.

- April George

When I moved to Sydney I visited many jewellers to find one I could trust to replace a diamond that had fallen out of my ring – when I met Nadia and Sonja I looked no more. Mondial is now my go to jeweller for all my special pieces. I love how they can find the right stone and design a unique setting just for me. My amazing change-colour sapphire ring and my stunning emerald pendant are just two of the fabulous pieces in my collection by Mondial! Thank you Nadia and Sonja.

- Sandi Homer

My partner and I bought a beautiful sapphire ring. We had been looking for years. The quality of the stone the setting were spectacular. The service and after sale follow up were of the highest standard. Would I buy again through them? Without a doubt. They care!

- Geoff Blaauw

Nadia has designed several pieces for us, and what struck us about her when we first met was her desire to get to know us, and in particular the story that was to accompany each piece. In this way she was able to translate our vague ideas into some extremely apt and beautiful jewellery that has been the source of much joy. Her creativity, knowledge and passion for what she does are very much in evidence in her shop. We simply wouldn't go anywhere else.

- Brooks Harvey

As you stroll along the beautiful Strand Arcade in Sydney, you can’t help but stop and admire the dazzling jewellery displayed in the windows of Mondial by Nadia. Once you step inside this gorgeous boutique you know you are in for a wonderful experience. Nadia and her team are all friendly and knowledgeable, and let you take your time to try on pieces. There are so many styles and colours to choose from, or they can design a piece for you. The craftsmanship, stones and materials are very high quality. We are so happy with our rings and they are admired every day! Thankyou Nadia!

So, if you are after a ring or two that are as unique as your relationship, then this is definitely the jeweller for you.

- Christine

I was really happy with Nadia and her team. I had been looking for months for a beautiful stone for a cocktail ring, and finally saw it in the window. The Mondial team were so helpful to redesign the ring and gave me an excellent price even though they were adding diamonds and changing from gold to white gold. 12 months later the ring is still beautiful so I'm very happy.

- Karen L

My partner and I were looking for an engagement ring together and had a stone and design in mind. We had been doing our research and trying to find 'the ring' for months and stumbled across Nadia's shop in the Strand (and can I say the jewellery on display are always much shinier than what I've seen elsewhere). Shopping for rings can feel intimidating especially with the price ranges you are looking at, but both Rose and Nadia made us feel at home. I not only felt super comfortable browsing all the beautiful jewellery in the store, they were also very encouraging when it came to trying them on. They even encouraged us to try it on under different lighting both outside and inside! Rose and Nadia both just have amazing energy to them, are super bubbly and laid back and that makes such a difference to the whole experience. The ring we ended up going with wasn't even the ring that I had in mind. Rose picked up on my style instantly and showed us a ring that blew us away. We walked out knowing that that was the ring we were looking for.

- Lily Ngo

I was not looking to buy a ring 10 years ago while in Sydney for work, but I was transfixed by a beautiful design in the Mondial widow. I forget the specific details of my work that day, but I would never forget Nadia, her warm and genuine nature, and her alluring and exquisite designs. Needless to say I left that day with a most beautiful ring on my finger.

A few years later and another ring ended up on another finger.

And so to earlier this year, another ring that is like no other I have ever seen. Stunningly beautiful and exquisitely designed. It’s sheer beauty is breathtaking.

Thank you Nadia. I always think of you when wearing my jewellery and the memories of leaving your boutique on cloud 9!

And then...to be continued. xxx

Nadia's work and dedication is outstanding. The piece that she made for me as a memory grandparents and parents is stunning and certainly one of a kind. I really appreciated her attention to detail, her care and giving me as much time as I needed to explain what I was dreaming of.

- Nathan Emery

I first heard of Mondial Jewellers through my son-in-law who had an engagement ring designed and made by them for my daughter. He then proceeded to have their wedding rings and her eternity ring made by Mondial. As a result, I was confident in enquiring about the possibility to design and remake several rings into what my husband and I called “our story ring”. Not an easy brief! Nadia did design exactly that; she took the time to listen and get to know us, allowing her to create the ring which uniquely represented us.

Nadia’s designs, whether new or remodelling pieces of jewellery are stunning because of her talent, her expertise, her willingness to listen and a desire to please. Nadia has remodelled a number of pieces for me since, and each time she has created a personalized piece that beautifully captures a moment or a memory.

We got our engagement ring and weddings bands from Mondial by Nadia in 2019 after looking everywhere for months. We definitely did our research and found the quality, craftsmanship, and customer service unparalleled. The tone of her rose gold pieces were perfect and the sapphire for the engagement ring was flawless. Neither my wife nor I wear much jewelry so we found Nadia's advice and eye for detail extremely helpful. We trust her implicitly and I would definitely go to her again when I need some high quality jewelry.

- Phillip Sung

Shopping at Mondial by Nadia is a jewellery lover's dream. The stunning boutique is situated in Sydney's glorious Strand Arcade. Nadia's pieces are truly unique. They are eye catching & often feature unusual & highly collectable gems. I am the proud owner of 3 spectacular pieces. Nadia herself is an absolute delight. Passionate about her creations & willing to spend a generous amount of time with you. Her other sales professionals are equally engaging & trustworthy. Craftsmanship & quality is extraordinary. I have also had 3 rings re-set by her superb master jeweller. I am definitely looking forward to adding to collection.

- Kim Ashbridge

Nadia and her team helped my partner to design my ultimate dream engagement ring. I am so happy with the style, quality and professionalism. Would highly recommend their services to others looking for “wow factor“ wedding rings.

- Chloe Sheehan

Beautiful and unique hand designed jewellery, warm & friendly conversation, can't wait to spoil myself with something from their collection

- Victoria Braxton-Meadows

On a fateful day last year, as I was wandering through the Strand Arcade on my way to get my shoes shined, a ring caught my eye in the window of a jewellery shop.

I’ve never really been into jewellery but this got me thinking and, after I casually mentioned it to my partner (who has a much greater appreciation of fine jewellery, so I’ve slowly discovered), she checked it out and approved of my previously undiscovered talent with a resounding “nice work Harry”.

That was our first of many purchases and the beginning of a beautiful relationship with Mondial.

Since then we’ve bought some stunning pieces and have been greatly assisted by Nadia and her team.

A truly special touch was the loan of a spectacular collier for a function at Government House. It was reluctantly returned but after a few weeks of deliberating it was acquired as it looked better on my partner than in the window.

A visit to Mondial to check out what’s new over a glass of champagne 🥂 and a chat is always a delight, as are the regular admiring comments from women (and men) who also have a good eye for jewellery that is both truly unique and quite exquisite .

- Stephen Harris

My wife and I have purchased two exquisite items of jewelry from Mondial over the past couple of years and on both occasions have found the entire experience to be stress free and enjoyable. On one of those occasions Nadia was creating a bespoke ring for us that wasn't quite as we had envisaged when we went to collect it and our concerns were taken on board and the item adjusted to align with our vision without any question, which we both found refreshing in this day and age where that level of individual customer service is sadly lacking.

- Mark Gannon

My love affair with Mondial in the Strand Arcade began three years ago. The enticing window display reeled me in, I was hooked! Nadia's friendly, reassuring manner put me at ease, also her attention to detail, and the ability to readily perceive my individual jewellery style greatly impressed me. Her service is outstanding, and supported by amazing staff, nothing is too much trouble. If necessary, different stones are sourced without delay, turning vision into reality. The impeccable quality of materials, craftsmanship, and superb presentation, are a joy to behold. Mondial by Nadia is without doubt my place of choice to purchase that exquisite item of contemporary diamond jewellery. Three fabulous items later and I remain one extremely delighted customer!

- Carol Bryant  

Nadia, Michael and the whole Mondial team are wonderful. I first met Nadia when I wanted to create my bespoke engagement ring. Nadia was warm, welcoming and passionate about creating the ring of my dreams….and she sure delivered!

No snobiness, no price judging, just genuine top notch service and a focus upon providing knowledge, guidance and design expertise. Nadia and her team take the time and interest to listen and truly understand what you want. They are patient and considerate. I always feel valued as a customer.

I returned to Nadia and Mondial for our wedding bands which again was an excellent experience and rewarded me with an amazing pink diamond wedding ring. I cannot write enough good feedback upon Nadia, Michael and the whole Mondial team. Oh yes, and the champagne :)

- E Fitz  

We had such a wonderful experience working with Nadia to choose our wedding rings. I wasn't totally sure what I wanted, and Nadia was so patient and helpful suggesting different rings to try on from her extensive selection. Ultimately, I fell in love with her "Willow" design. Others must love it too because I get compliments all the time. Nadia also gave us lots of great advice about my husband's ring, which was perfect. We were flying overseas for the wedding, and even though it was during the busy Christmas period, Nadia was able to get both rings made in time for us to take with us. Couldn't be happier. Thanks, Nadia!

- Kathy Novak  

These days, there are very few businesses that genuinely treat you as an important and valued customer no matter how much money you’re spending with them. Mondial by Nadia is one such business.

In all of my dealings with the staff at Mondial I was met with patience, friendliness, guidance and expertise. These are people who really know their industry and product well and genuinely love what they do. They value service, quality and honesty and I always felt like I was in very capable hands. I would highly recommend Mondial By Nadia to anyone who was after a quality product and value for money.

- Alfred Pfister  

I have purchased several items from Mondial by Nadia and am a very happy returning customer. The personal attention is superb and Nadia and her team know how to make a customer feel at home and relaxed. There is never any pressure, just patient and warm service as they develop an understanding of your needs, likes and dislikes. I used to be nervous about buying jewellery but Mondial by Nadia has helped me to develop a love and appreciation for the joy of owning something unique and beautiful.

- Prudence Jacobson  

Came across a magnificent jewellery store in the strand arcade Mondial... I was looking to have a diamond ring made for sometime but never really connected with any stores I visited. After talking to Nadia for a while, who gave advise freely and I never felt it was just a sale she just understood what I wanted.

I got the ring I’d always wanted With a lot of care in the process ,her attention to detail is excellent!! If you want that old world service I recommend you go to Nadia.

- Robbie Geammal  

Back in 2016, I was lucky enough to walk into Mondial and meet Nadia and the team who made my vision of redesigning my engagement and wedding ring come true! Nadia instantly understood what I was after and proposed the most perfect design! I was absolutely blown away when I picked up the rings! So much so that even though I ended up moving to Europe, I still engage Nadia and her team to design me special pieces. Most recently a gorgeous white gold necklace with diamonds!

- Julie Fedele  

Nadia,

Thank you so much for the truly gorgeous and unique ring - it’s exactly what I had hoped for. Thank you for your confident, artistic and insightful design advice... and for the seemingly effortless beautiful result. I could not be happier. It’s been a pleasure.

- Celia  

I would echo the other reviews here, with my experience being similarly top-notch and wonderful. My husband and I had our wedding rings made here, with Nadia's and Sonja's expert advice and design, and couldn't have been happier. The service from both ladies was excellent, personalised and welcoming, without a hint of 'pushiness'. We were encouraged and guided to make our own decisions with the designs and ring/stone selection, while at the same time benefiting from expert suggestions. Changes of mind and design updates were also accommodated without fuss. Would totally recommend them to anyone looking for quality ring and jewellery designs.

- Matthew Jones  

The result of Nadia's magic touch in design and execution is mind-blowing!

The purchase of a pair of Sapphire earrings from Nadia, was beautifully enhanced by Nadia's addition of a white Diamond halo to each Sapphire stud. I was delighted! Nadia's taste, sense of style, design and production are the best! Nadia's magic touch is absolutely recommended for producing that special piece of jewellery! Didi, 28 June, 2019
