What do the Chiefs have to say?

Below is a small collection of unsolicited letters and excerpts we have received from the Chief's directly..

Bob and Carol, 


Thank you so much for my awesome ring.  The quality, detail and craftsmanship is sure to guarantee this ring will be passed down from generation to generation as the most sought after heirloom in our family.


I have been looking for a Master Chief ring for two years and have never been able to find one the best symbolizes my thirty years in the navy.  I've found some OK chief's rings and some nice submariner rings but the ring you and Carol made for me has set the bar beyond reach for all other jewelers.


The ring with the Master Chief anchor and dolphins on the side is elegant and understated and one of a kind, just what I wanted. The ring has a substantial weight but is so smooth and well balanced it is a joy to wear.  

 Your and Carol's willingness to work with me during the design and build insured it was going to not only meet but far exceed my expectations.

 Much cheaper rings can be found but this is a classic example of, "You get what you pay for", and I got every penny's worth.


Your loyal customer,

Bob, I just received the ring today and it's just AMAZING! The craftsmanship and attention to detail are unbelievable. It's fits perfectly as well and carries a nice weight to it. You and Carol did an OUTSTANDING job with my ring. I love it! Thank you!



I received my CPO ring yesterday and "MY GOODNESS" what a piece; it is absolutely beautiful.  I'm so glad to have purchased this ring and so proud to own something like this.  I let my wife open the package and when she saw the ring her mouth almost dropped to the floor.  Her eyes were open wide and she was stunned and amazed, practically speechless.  She uttered the word "Oh my GOODNESS, this is a beautiful ring"; she then placed it on my finger while expressing how much I deserve it .   I can't wait to show it off in the Chief's mess!

This ring really embodies Navy Chiefs especially when we say...


With utmost regards... Thank you,

Chief Darron Finley.


P.S.  Tell Carol she did a fantastic job, and that I appreciate her hard work.


"Bob and Carol, 
I got the ring over the weekend when I went home for my retirement ceremony. To say the least I was stunned. It is so good looking. It has that understated by elegant look. Which is just what I was looking for? I will send you a picture with me wearing it. But thanks a bunch for working with me on this.

Dear Bob and Carol 

I just wanted to say that I have waited 10 years for this ring.  I have looked at every chiefs ring on the market and was about to buy one of the others, until I saw yours online. I was amazed at the attention to detail and the care and hard work that you put into each and every ring that you design.  

Well I finally got my ring I ordered and I was floored. This ring even looked better than the pictures. I can’t believe you could get such detail in a piece of jewelry. My wife was the given the honor of opening the box first. I received it on time for Christmas and Bob was wonderful to work with. Bobs willingness to listen to my thoughts on how the ring was to be made, just put me at ease.  

Please allow me to say that I believe every chief that has ever served and that is still serving should own such a work of art. We deserve it. Carol you are an amazing artist and should be commended on the fine works of art that you create for us. You are the standard in which every artist so strive to become.

With all my respect and admiration 

ENC (SW) Mark D. Bryner Ret.



"I LOVE my ring!!  Its beautiful the hard work and precision are visible in every detail!"  If I ever get another piece of jewelry made, Ahern and Brucker will be the first place I call!!  Thank you"

Dear Bob and Carol,

     Would you put this on the testimonial page as I want other Chiefs to know how much I love my ring. This was a retirement gift to myself and when it came in the mail, I was shocked at how beautiful my ring is. The on-line photographs just don't do  it justice! I am so proud to wear it on a daily basis. It is a reminder of 22 great years as a Hospital Corpsman. People are always asking to see the ring up close and they ask questions about it which I am proud to answer. Thanks Bob and Carol for creating this beautiful work of art. It's such a fabulous piece of jewelry. I would recommend this to all my fellow CPOs! NAVY CHIEF, NAVY PRIDE!

I got the ring just a few minutes ago when I got home from work. It's AMAZING! Awesome work and it got here quick. It fits perfectly and I'm positive the rest of the Chiefs are going to love it. I'm surprised at how much it weighs. This is definitely a very solid ring. The stones look great and the anchor looks awesome! Hopefully you'll be having a lot of business coming your way.
I'll keep you updated.
Thanks again! The ring is AMAZING!


Hi Bob,
 The ring is stunning!!! Erik said it fits good. 
Thank you for everything.  We have passed the word on about you all and hope to send some customers you  way soon.



I received the ring.  It's great!  I
can't wait to see her face when she opens the box.

Hi Bob, 

I could hardly believe my eyes when I opened the box that held my “CPO RING”.  It took my breath away! I was stunned!  The ring was a masterpiece.  I had seen pictures of it but the actual ring waiting to be placed on my finger…Awesome! It was mine! 

I received the ring as a gift from my family when I was recently promoted to Navy Chief.  I wear the ring with great pride.  I am honored to have received this ring.  When I wear it other Chiefs have complimented the ring, some with envy. 

My gratitude to Ahern & Brucker for designing the military “CPO RING”. Your detailed and precision craftsmanship is unbelievable. 

Best regards, 

Chief Brian Pearson


Bob & Carol,
I wanted to let you know I received the ring and it was way beyond expectations!  What a fantastic job! I'm glad I had the opportunity to finally order my ring - it is now my prized possession.
All my thanks for the EXCELLENT customer service and AMAZING craftsmanship. I wish you and your family all the best for the holidays and health and happiness for the New Year.
All my best,



The ring is awesome and it's a part of my everyday life.  It's probably the best purchase I've made ever.



It IS beautiful.. I locked the hubby out of the bedroom so I could stare at it and try it on... Lol!!! Carol did an amazing job!!!! I will have to have you/her commission future work for me once I pay off my loans :)




    The ring arrived to day and I have one word "STUNNING"!!  It is far better then I expected.  True a work of art.  Please pass to Carol my thanks.  I have never had such a beautiful piece. 
    Thanks again!  The turn around was very fast too!


Got the ring today, it truly is a work of art - I am very pleased.




Bob and Carol, 

The ring and pendant arrive the other day.  I have to say they are exactly what I expected.  It is amazing to see an idea put in such perfect execution.  Truly a work of art.  I will wear it with pride and of course tell everyone where I got it.  
   To say I am happy would be an understatement.  I am happy beyond word.  Thanks again and please pass to Carol she out did herself again in my eyes!
