“Dutille’s made the process of selecting an engagement ring very easy and comfortable. Jude listened to the vision of what I wanted and sketched it out right in front of me. The end result was the perfect ring for my wife

When you go in there you get the sense that you are the only person in the store. I always felt like their most important customer. I think that everyone who walks through that door gets that same experience.”

— David Cotoni, Customer Since 1998

“The expertise you guys shared to make the rings more durable, more polished, more “sparkly” – all the while keeping them in our price range was reassuring and valuable. You took ideas and made the most beautiful rings that would sustain an active lifestyle. Both my husband and I felt like cherished friends by the staff at Dutille’s from our first meeting…”

— E.P.F., Orford, NH

“Jude, the ring is more beautiful then I would have hoped! I can’t take my eyes off of it! Thank you so much for the thought and work you put into making such a brilliant creation!”

— L.K.

“The whole experience of working with the Dutille team, Jude and Cheryl LaJoie especially, was terrific. They did an outstanding job of translating my vision for the resetting of my diamond engagement ring into an exquisite reality. Jude’s creation, when finished, brought tears to my eyes! If you want craftsmanship, artistry and exceptional customer care, you want Dutille’s!”

— Lynn Baker

“I love shopping at your store. Either for myself or a special, meaningful gift for someone on my list, I have never been disappointed! Your staff members are the best. Cheryl has helped me so many times to get just the right thing. From designing that special piece that helps my mom remember my dad or helping me get my dream piece that I never thought I would wear. I love them ALL! My special charm bracelet. My friend’s mom‘s necklace. Birthday bling remembering a special event. Birthday gift for my best friend. You helped with all and more. Thank you ALL so much!”

—Paula Smith

“I want to express my thanks, especially to Cheryl and Jude, for taking the time and energy to create my exquisite engagement/wedding ring. It is not only a comforting replacement after the loss of my original rings, but also an even more beautiful and elegant piece of jewelry than the design I started with ten months ago. Quite frankly, it’s the loveliest ring I’ve ever seen.”

— Glenna Giveans, Lebanon, NH

“What a pleasure to go in with an old pair of earrings and come out with a new pin. They do magic.”

— Beverly Goring

The ring is AMAZING! I am head over heals with it! It is better then I could have ever expected! More exactly what I wanted, if that is possible! Thank you so much for you help with this! I really am just blown away!”

— A. Barnes

"The necklace is absolutely beautiful and I was impressed with the professionalism, customer service, integrity and artisanship that came along with a breathtaking custom design."

— A.G., Norwich, VT

“First class experience from start to finish! My designer was very receptive and responsive to our ideas and had some great ones of her own. We couldn’t be more pleased with our custom anniversary band. This is the only place to shop for fine jewelry in the Upper Valley.”

— Courtney A., Plainfield, NH

“I always love to visit your store. Your staff is welcoming and the store is bright and shiny. I appreciate the individual attention no matter the price of the piece I am considering. You care about your customers and helping them care for their treasured jewelry.”

— Lisa Rowell, Addison, VT


“From the first day we came to Dutille's looking for some creative ideas for our engagement ring, Kathy and I got positive and helpful attitudes from Cheryl and other staff. We have felt welcome every time we came in the door. The ring they made for us was nothing less than spectacular!”

— Kathy McQueen and David Williams, Thetford, VT

The words that come to mind are amazing and beautiful. Amazing how they take an idea and make it a reality; the end result is absolutely beautiful. The craftsmanship is stunning, like the bracelet made from my mother’s wedding ring and the necklace made in honor of my brother who was killed in Iraq. The memories are priceless.”

— Karen Sheehan, Lebanon, NH


“We were referred to Dutille’s from several customers who each remarked on the quality, integrity, and value of their work. We were not disappointed. To craft an engagement ring as special and unique as my fiancée herself, Jude and his team patiently discussed countless design techniques over several hours until we were completely satisfied. While underway, Jude regularly provided photos and even a video with progress, but nothing will match the look on my bride-to-be’s face in a little blue box opens and she sees it for the first time. I’m sure Jude and company will come to mind countless times in the decades to come. I just hope the marriage sparkles as much is the ring.” 

— San Francisco, CA

“My granddaughter has wanted a size 4 pinky ring forever. I decided I would try to make this dream come true. It would be a Christmas/birthday gift. We stopped at Dutille’s. A very nice man sat down, connected with Izzy, and I listened. I was shocked at her request. She wanted this very tiny ring to represent the American flag. He listened, worked diligently asking her for her ideas, and always with patience and enthusiasm. I frankly was surprised Dutille’s would take on such a task. He even made her feel that she had designed it. Her dream appeared on her 21st birthday and it was truly beautiful. A combination of tiny sapphires, diamonds and rubies. Truly amazing. She loves it and it has great meaning. Thanks to you all at Dutille’s.”
