"David Courts and I have been friends for far too long - since 1966? Coming out of the art-school mafia of london in the sixties, we kind of hit right away... Courts & Hackett bones are of the first order - check my skull.” KEITH RICHARDS from the London EVENING STANDARD, 30 January 1997

“The first piece that grabbed me was a skull pin with human hair and a gold tooth - I bought it for Keith ... he [Keith Richards] has quite a collection of their work. Some really wild pieces of precious sculpture... and of course the famous skull ring that he never takes off... I think the last piece he bought was a diamond version of that ring.” ANITA PALLENBERG from the London EVENING STANDARD, 30 January 1997

“Objects of this type clearly have their place in a tradition that descends from the metalsmiths of the renaissance, among them Benvenuto Cellini.’’ EDWARD LUCIE-SMITH on the work of Courts and Hackett from his book ART IN THE SEVENTIES, Phaidon, London, 1980

“Stylish but slightly shocking ... protean talent... two of Britains most gifted jewelry makers.” CONNOISSEUR magazine, January 1983

"Keith is in a position to buy any of the best jewellery from the top names around the world... he and Patti came to them for their engagement ring." VIVIENNE BECKER from HARPERS AND QUEEN, October 1985
