"For those of you who know Whidbey Island, you're probably aware that Langley is the small, quaint, but vibrant hub on the south side of the that isle. What you may not know, is that centrally located on its main street of cute shops, antique, curio, and book stores is one of the very best jewelery stores to be found anywhere in this neck of the woods.  Oh, there are other jewelry stores in Whidbey and even in Langely, and they also have some nice pieces.  But if you really want something special (and yet very reasonably priced) in mind, Celtic Viking Jewelry is matchless! 

While it's certainly not the largest jewelry store around, they have fantastic personalized service, a real artisan in Bret Christensen -- the owner -- and a lot of pride in their work.  That includes design, craftsmanship, honest appraisals, and customer service.  For me, most importantly, Bret listens and cares about pleasing you.  He'll take the time and make the effort to create a piece to meet your vision and expectations.  He'll keep you informed and answer your questions.  In other words, he'll really work with you and establish a relationship so that you will return and spread the word.  In addition to original designs he also has a variety of other lovely pieces already made and worth considering, as well as interesting items in addition to just jewlery.  Obviously, I am a happy customer and my wife and I have returned there several times to purchase gifts for each other, friends, and family members.  Nope, I'm not getting paid for this  endorsement but I do want to see Bret thrive at Celtic Viking Jewlery.  He and his family help make Whidbey the kind of place worth visiting more than once."

"Bret… I wanted to say THANK YOU for creating such an incredible work of art—the GOLD VIOLIN pendant. Never have I seen something like it, nor have I ever received one!.  It is truly outstandingly beautiful. You and Frank sure put your creative thoughts to work on this! I shall cherish it – wear it—for the rest of my days !!"

– Becky A

Ed. note: This was a 2” long violin specially made from solid gold sheet using the same techniques in the construction of a real violin. The strings were fashioned from white gold, attached with turning thumbscrews. The bow was used as a pendant holder. Interesting, when I put this piece in the untrasonic cleaning machine, the high frequency sound waves use to clean jewelry reverberated causing the violin to sing.

"I Absolutely love the wedding rings that you made for Tommy and I on such short notice.  I get a lot of compliments on my ring all the time.  Thanks again for such beautiful work!!"

"Bret LISTENS to you and what you want.  He crafted a beautiful custom ring for me and my intended.  The ring is even better than I expected, in both beauty and value.  He also found a "blue" diamond for me.  Not only is it gorgeous during the day, it fluoresces--glows light blue--under a black light.  I feel like he found us a magic stone."

Hi Bret!

I'm happy to do this for you.  I was really happy with the work that you did for me on the custom dragon ring that you made for my friend.  The skill and craftsmanship that you put into it was unbelievable!  You listened and really knew just what I was looking at having you create. I appreciate that you took the time to really work with me on this project. It was such a beautiful piece of work and when I gave it to my friend, it turned out to be a wonderful surprise!

Thanks again!
– Laurie C

"Bret Christiansen and his people were courteous and professional when we commissioned him to do a piece of custom silver jewelry to our design. The process was pleasant and the result was beautifully done.  If we have any plans for another custom silver piece Bret will most certainly do it."

"Celtic Viking jewelry is a positive addition to the Langely retail options. Bret is very customer oriented, skilled in his craft, knowledgeable and thorough in his analysis of repairs and products. We are fortunate to have CelticViking Jewelry in Langley."
 – Peter G, Langley, WA 

Bret, the beautiful hunter's necklace I bought from you is wonderful to see and wear. I am a fan of Greek mythology, and I suppose was also an underlying cause to buy it because its name and design are original and it combines metals and a single beautiful pearl into a magical piece for me.

 – Marilyn T

Bret at the Celtic Viking is the only person I trust to work on my jewelry. His work is high quality and very fair in price. Now all my family and friends only trust him as well with their jewelry too.

 – Kathryn H, North Dakota

While on the island with my girlfriend we stopped in to check out your store and she just loved a ring that you had there. After calling Bret and telling him my plans for my engagement he was happy to help. He went as far to offer to drop it off while he was in Eastern Washington with his Family. This is the only shop I will ever deal with for my Jewelry. Thank you very much for all your help."

 – Joe N, Cashmere, WA

“I always thoroughly enjoy working with Bret. He has created some beautiful jewelry for me. He has the ability to take a vague idea and turn it into a beloved piece.”

 – Anne P, Langley, WA

"Bret -  I  just  wanted  to  add  my  thanks  to  your  testimonial  page.  Over  the  almost  ten  years  that  I  have  known  you,  you  have  helped  me  with  several  pieces.  You  have  always  been  willing  to  listen  to  my  crazy  ideas  and   make  them  work!  I  truly  appreciate  your  artistry  and  patience!  THANK  YOU!!"

"Bret helped me design a unique Claddagh ring for my wife to commemorate a special occasion.  He took a stack of random drawings and notes and turned them into a gorgeous one-of-a-kind creation, with every detail customized for her.  For parts that I knew what I wanted, he matched my ideas exactly.  For parts that I didn't have completely thought out, he made suggestions that tied everything together perfectly. 

Bret kept me involved in the entire process - showing me the initial mold and reworking details based on my feedback, brainstorming options for the gem, and keeping me posted on progress. The end result was fantastic - Madonna is completely in love with the ring, and constantly gets compliments and questions about it.  Bret, thanks again for making me look like a hero."

– Sean M.  Redmond, WA.

Bret and family:  Thank you so much for making such beautiful rings.  It was an honor to work with you and wear your art on our hands.  Thank you so much !! 

Blair A and Jessica T.  Seattle, WA

Dear Bret: We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the fine workmanship and time you spent on our wedding rings. We absolutely love them as they are just as we hoped they would be. No one could have made us happier!
