Testimonials

Lee Dorn has been “my” jeweler for at least 20 years. Why? He offers exquisite jewelry designs, will create wonderful one-of-a-kind pieces, and provides superb customer service. Lee is able to sketch and explain the customer’s “vision” of what they want and, when asked, will offer possibilities for design or metal. An honest and sincere man, whom I respect as a business owner, and whom I consider a friend.

Beautification through ornamentation describes the precious stone and metal work that comes from the creative designs of Lee Dorn Jewelers. Jewels, gems, and jewelry are his specialty, and are second only to pleasing customers who ALWAYS return. We have been customers of Lee for many years, and each time we visit there are new ideas and fresh designs to consider. Lee Dorn even keeps me on his email list and remembers birthday and anniversary dates better than I do. Thanks Lee for being the expert we need in the jewelry business!

Susan H., Middleton, WI

As a GIA diploma awarded gemologist who worked in the field of importing gemstones and representing some of the finest jewelry manufacturing artists, I recommend Lee Dorn highly. Over a period of twenty years, Lee and I worked together to bring some of the finest gems and jewelry to the Madison area. I traveled throughout the Midwest and know no one who worked harder or cared more about what he did than Lee. He was always looking for something new and innovative, but sound in jewelry construction. He is a good friend of mine, and good for the jewelry industry.

Jac G., Madison, WI

Whenever you go to Lee Dorn’s shop, you know that you will be treated to wit, kindness, and a fabulous selection of jewelry. His taste is impeccable; his humor infectious; and his wish to make each customer feel like they are a duchess or a princess or wherever your imagination takes you is spot on. I would buy jewelry no other place—where else can you find a kind person who “gets” your taste and style?

Andrea S., Madison, WI

The other night at dinner—on vacation—my wife wore the earrings I purchased for her many years ago from Lee Dorn Jewelry. She and they looked stunning. Here’s the best part: When she receives compliments on her jewelry, as she frequently does, it’s as if I gave her another gift.

Chris L., Chicago, IL

Lee Dorn took my vision for an inherited diamond in a 1950s setting, and created an exciting design that modernized and highlighted a diamond that was important to me, in a way that fits me and my lifestyle.

Deedra A., Madison, WI

Lee Dorn is the ultimate professional, who offers excellent advice on our jewelry selections. In addition to his tremendous service, Lee gets to know the tastes and preferences of his customers, and thereafter makes the shopping experience easy, and a lot of fun!

Jay K., Madison, WI

I moved to Chicago 8 years ago. Lee Dorn is STILL my jeweler. To have that kind of loyalty, he’s got to be amazing. Lee is the best at customer service I have ever encountered and his design creativity cannot be matched.

Zola, Chicago, IL

Lee Dorn is a great listener and does not hesitate to find exactly whatever I am looking for. He has keen recall of what I have previously purchased from him and he really knows my wife’s tastes far better than I do. Shopping with Lee Dorn Jewelers is always a pleasure.

Jon A., Madison, WI

Lee Dorn is a true artist. He has the ability to talk to you about your vision for a unique piece of jewelry & then turn it into reality. I had a beautiful diamond in a traditional setting that had been sitting in a safe deposit box, unworn for a number of years. Lee asked me to describe the ideal setting as he sketched my description. I fell in love — first with the sketch & then when I saw the ring! Lee had transformed my ordinary ring into an extraordinarily beautiful work of art!
