Ada is my absolute favourite place for jewellery & special gifts. There are so many beautiful things from lots of different makers. The hard part is choosing, but thankfully Ruth gives awesome advice! - Emily (Oct 21)

I stumbled across this hidden jewellers after some lunch & instantly fell in love with a ring, I still wear every single day. I was like ‘Gollum’ from lord of the rings for this ring. Beautiful crafted. Really recommend this shop full of hidden gems, you literally cannot get anywhere else. I’m definitely coming back to get the earrings next. Ruth is so friendly with the warmest welcome as soon as you step into Ada & very talented. Thank you! - Cherry (Oct 21)

With Ruth & her staff’s expert advice & fantastic range of jewellery & gifts of varying styles & price on offer in Ada, we have always been able to choose the perfect gifts whatever the occasion. I commissioned Ruth to make me a piece of her own Cave Jewellery for a special occasion. As always she listened to what I wanted, contributed her own professional opinions & was very patient with me! The final piece was perfect & I still love it! I never have any hesitation in recommending Ada & Ruth’s services. - Theresa & Ted (Oct 21)

I recently visited Ruth at Ada Gallery with the view to having a couple of gemstones I had purchased many years ago made into some jewellery. I really love the jewellery Ruth creates & had decided I wanted a ring & a pendant. I felt very comfortable discussing the commission with Ruth & she clearly explained the costings & timescales. Ruth kept me informed through the process. I am thrilled with my jewellery & can't recommend Ruth highly enough. If you want a unique piece of jewellery then go & visit this gem of a shop. Jane (Oct 20)

Ruth’s eye for design & her finely crafted bespoke jewellery, has kept us returning for years. Whether a commissioned works or an off the shelf purchase from her wonderful “Ada Gallery”, Ruth comes highly recommended. - Adam & Hayley (Sept 21)

I first knew about Ruth & her jewellery a number of years ago, through my daughter doing some photographic work, for the then Leicestershire & Life magazine. Ruth’s rings stood out to me, as they reminded me of gemstones you would find in a cave or rock formation. So I filed her name away, thinking one day I will get one. On the death of my beloved parents, I decided a ring by Ruth would be a beautiful remembrance of them.

Also hidden away in a box was a necklace , an artist’s piece, bought for me by my husband for our 10th anniversary. The chain was broken, it also had attached to it a jewelled pendant I didn’t want to lose. I ask Ruth’s advise after choosing one of her ring's. I found her advice clear and straight forward. She provided me with a variety of gold chains of varying costs, to choose from. Ruth was able to put the pendant onto the new chain, and also offered to sell my scrap gold without commission, which we thought was very generous. I would recommend Ruth & her shop Ada to anyone looking for a special gift or simply something beautiful. - Terry & Jane (Sept 21)

The jewellery you hand crafted for me were exactly what I wanted for myself & my daughters.  My mother passed away about 5 years ago, & I really wanted something that I could remember her by & also a gift to my daughters... a legacy from my mother (their grandmother), & from me. I had a number of gold oddments plus my mothers rings... which were predominantly set with diamonds & sapphires - nothing extraordinary, but fairly old fashioned & not something either I or my daughters would wear.
So... the gold helped pay towards the cost of creating the necklaces, & the sapphires & diamonds were repurposed & set into these beautiful, individually handcrafted necklaces that I have been able to give to my daughters.


We are all delighted with these subtly different necklaces, making them not only original to us as they were hand made, but also individual to ourselves.
 Ruth took me through every step of the way, explaining the process & inviting my input with her gentle guidance. Hand on heart, I think my daughters & I have something that will stand the test of time & be a long lasting token of remembrance from my mother & their grandmother. Karen (Sept 20)

Remodelling: I had a diamond crescent brooch my mother left me. I tried to wear it, but it really wasn't me. Ruth at Ada helped me to visualise my options & I've ended up with beautiful pendant, earrings & ring. I wear them all & I know my mother would have loved them too, thank you Ruth

Buying gifts: I was really struggling to find something special for my daughter in law, so I popped into Ada. So many options, jewellery, a scarf, a handbag... I ended up buying a beautiful matching necklace & earrings, she loved them. - Sally (Sept 21)

I commissioned Ruth to turn my mums wedding ring into two rings, one each for my daughters. Ruth talked us through the process & advised what would & wouldn’t be possible. We also had a tight timescale as one of my daughters was moving to China in a few weeks & I really wanted her to take her ring with her. Ruth went above & beyond to get the rings cut, sized and made in time. The rings are beautiful & both my daughters were thrilled with them. - Debbie (July 21)

A huge thank you to Ruth Wood from Ada Gallery, for designing & resetting the diamonds from a ring I inherited into a Cave Treasure bespoke design. Set deeply so they can withstand my horsey jobs! - Julia (July 21)

 

Ruth's help was invaluable when choosing a present remotely. Her online service was very professional.  I high recommend her website and service.
Will this do? - Delphine (June 21)

I would like to thank Ruth & Jodie for their outstanding customer service & for pulling out all the stops when we visited Ada Gallery with the specific aim of purchasing a ring from Susanna Hanl’s stunning Arresting Collection, for a special birthday present. The service from initial contact, to the purchase was friendly and professional & we enjoyed our visit immensely. Thank you Ada Gallery! - Julie & Ann (May 21)

I am so glad I discovered you! I first bought a pair of earrings for my friend's birthday & I then received a pair for my birthday. Both pairs are beautiful and we are receiving lots of compliments. I have really sensitive skin so I'm always concerned when buying new earrings & I've had no problems with these at all. They are really well made & look wonderful on. Customer service was also spot on. It was so easy to chat. Will be ordering again soon! Thank you! X - Barbara (May 21)

Ada Gallery has a fantastic selection of jewellery, not to mention handbags! It is difficult to come away without buying more than you intended. Ruth also gives tremendous personal service, when you need something in a specific size or metal. Totally recommended. - Beverly (May 21)

Thank you Ruth for providing an excellent service for my sister & myself. From identifying the bag at Ada from a telephone description, ordering & then airmailing to Greenport, USA. We are absolutely delighted with the service you provided. Thank you. - Monica (April 21)

Great service! Organised an appointment popped in and Ruth gave me a friendly welcome, fabulous service and a wonderful Christmas present. I'll be back again. It's tucked away in the courtyard don't miss this hidden gem. - Richard (Jan 21 - Google)

It is always a pleasurable experience to purchase something special for a loved one from Ruth at Ada. The items are individual & very often unique. I have also commissioned a ring for a Christmas present & Ruth had good ideas, advice and knowledge on what would make a lovely piece of jewellery. - Gil (Dec 20)

My partner loved the earrings I bought from your shop. A really great present & fantastic service. - Chris (Nov 20)

Ada is my go to place for gifts for all of my family, that I know they will love. Always going over & above to make sure I get the right thing. Always the best quality & always well received! - Alex (Nov 20)

My experience with Ada Gallery & Ruth Wood has been not only positive. Ruth has been very helpful & accommodating especially when I’m trying to get presents for my friends in the U.K while I’m in the U.S. Thank you Ruth Wood & Ada Gallery for such a wonderful experience! (Susana, Nov 20)


Ada Gallery is always on the top of my gift list for original & well designed jewellery for birthdays & Christmas... always a help with a stuck husband! The customer service is outstanding & it's great to shop local. A must! - Becca (Nov 20)

I commissioned Ruth at Ada to make two rings for me over a period of time.
She is able to translate your ideas & put them into design & source great gems. I love her organic approach. At Ada you can find authentic designs & gifts for every budget. Along with excellent service. Dawn (July 20)

I have bought two pairs of gorgeous earrings from Ada. Shopping at Ada is a lovely experience. Ruth & her team are always so helpful & patient. The jewellery is unique & stunning! - Jocelyn (June 20)

Ada Gallery is a beautiful treasure trove of contemporary jewellery & wonderful craft accessories made by local & country-wide British jewellers & artisans. You are always warmly welcomed by Ruth or one of her friendly & helpful assistants making it a joy to browse & pore over the artefacts in a relaxed environment.

 Ruth has made jewellery for me when I lost my wedding ring, she adapted one of her own beautiful rings, the design inspired by natural organic forms & textures. Her work is unique & inspired & it led my son & his (then) fiancée to ask Ruth to make their wedding rings earlier this year. They are thrilled with their beautiful rings. 

I always look forward to visiting Ada Gallery, as there is a variety of opportunity to find that unique gift for friend or family whatever the occasion! Jeni (June 20)


I went to Ruth with a challenge. I took my old & a bit battered engagement ring to her to see if she could use the stone (one small sapphire) & create another ring. We had a meeting & 
basically left it to her, as I knew her work from my daughters engagement & wedding ring. What she created was exactly the same as my vision & she also created a pendant out of the left over gold ring band so I can now wear my original ring in two seperate pieces. Ruth is lovely to work with, kept me informed & will always be my first choice when looking for something a bit different. Denise (July 20)


Having always loved Ruth's Cave jewellery I asked Ruth to make a ring for me. From start to finish Ruth was brilliant, sending me lots of photos of different stones & really listening to how I wanted the ring to look. Ruth kept me in the loop at each stage & I was thrilled to see the finished article - it was just what I had asked for. Really, really pleased! - Emma (June 20)

I absolutely love my rings from Ada Gallery, after purchasing one of the “cave rings” I’ve gradually grown my collection! They are one of a kind beautiful rings, that you can tell were created by an artist with so much love. Each of Ruth’s designs seem to tell a little story & I’ve brought them to remind me of special life events. Ruth was so helpful when I was choosing my jewellery, not easy when there was so much choice & it made the experience feel so personal and bespoke. I get so many compliments on my rings when I wear them stacked or on their own. Joanna (May 20)

Lovely gallery. Great jewellery, scarves, bags etc by great designers. And a lovely owner too! Ruth (April 20 - Facebook)

I was browsing in Ada looking at the range of distinctive & unusual jewellery when I spotted a set of 3 acorn diamond set rings handcrafted by Shimara Carlow, which I fell in love with. Ruth was able to have one made in my size by the maker & I have worn them a lot. They are delicate & very pretty. Later I was able to purchase a matching set of earrings - perfect!! Thank you Ada! - Sue (Oct 19)

A visit to Ada in Market Harborough is an absolute joy for me. I have had several pieces designed & made by Ruth & they are exquisite. I always receive comments from other people because they are unusual & the colours of the stones amazing. Ruth has a lovely fun approach & so patient & knowledgeable about all the other jewellers, whose designs she stocks. - Beverley (Sept 19)

They are gift wrapped beautifully in ribbon, and now in lovely new bags. Ruth is so friendly and helpful that its a pleasure to shop here, highly recommend to everyone xx Jodie (Jan 19 - Facebook) 

Ruth undertook a special commission for me.  My wedding ring had been replaced as it no longer fitted and I wanted it made into two separate rings, one for each of my daughters.  I explained my ideas to Ruth who understood immediately what I was after, made some suggestions and gave me an estimate.  She finished the rings as promised in time for Christmas, and her work was beautiful.  She made two stunning contemporary pieces from my dated 1970s ring and my daughters were thrilled.  Ruth was wonderful to liaise with, keeping in touch about progress, and the cost was extremely reasonable.  I shall go back as I love her style and I recommend her work as it is outstanding.
