My husband and I had a great experience
with Ron. He was recommended from a co-worker and I am very glad we went to him. I wanted a very large ring and couldn't find exactly what I wanted at any of the jewelry stores, so we had him custom make my ring. I get compliments on it all the time. I got a high quality diamond and I received paperwork of the specs with the ring. He is an honest guy and I would definitely recommend him!
Pay for the store fixtures or buy a bigger diamond?.
I have been to his store many times over the years, when children were born, anniversarys, birthday, and major events and Holidays. There is not a store that will beat Rons work ethic, honesty, and value of product. He has told me he can find me what I want in a price range I can afford, imagine a picture of something out of tiffanys catalog on you Wifes neck. It looks the same (Yes I know the quality can not be the same as the piece) you are buying pretty, For those of you that have gone in with hopes of seeing counter after counter of glass and product, you will be disappointed, but if you have a picture out of a flyer or catalog or wedding book... Ron is your guy. He will sell you the hot new thing at a price you can afford. (right now it is Chocolate Diamonds) For those of you that have negative reviews, let me know where your store is I will shop it and put it up against Wholesale Gold and Diamonds any day, honest talk is not insulting, was he lying about your sh*tty little diamond? Ron is not about pulling punches and telling you what you want to hear, he will give you the truth, let you make your decision, no heavy handed sell that it may not be here tomorrow or if you buy this today I can give you another 10% off. he is selling a life time of memories, for you and your loved ones. Bring in the NEW YEAR with a Gift from Ron you will not be disappointed.
Diamond in the Rough.
Wholesale Gold and Diamond is hands down, the best deal in town. I understand where the poorer reviews are coming from, but if you don't go in expecting a Harry Winston experience, you'll leave here extremely happy.
The owner is a no-frills business man. Yes, he tells it to you straight, but he also works hard to get you the highest quality jewelry at a fraction of the cost. He doesn't keep much on display in his store, but that's all part of keeping his prices low. No complaints here.
I had been drooling over a designer engagement ring that was well out of my fiance's price range. He found me an identical ring, well within our price range AND I was able to get a larger diamond.
Go to this place with an open mind. It helps if you send him pictures of things you like ahead of time. I promise it's so worth it!
Honesty = Insults?.
I've written very few abjectly unfavorable reviews, but these guys are well worth the effort. My sweetie and I went here, with the idea of having a smaller stone put into a white gold ring. It is not a Tiffany ring, but the owner (his picture is on the website) said (direct quote): "It's just a sh*tty little ring." WOW! The website says,"We will tell you the truth, even if it hurts your feelings." I guess we were warned. I've done business w/putzes in NY who weren't this rude though. Convenient location in The Lumber Exchange Bldg. Not much merchandise at all there, but it's just a sh*tty little store. Caveat Emptor!
Not what I expected..
This "store" was a tiny little suite in a hard to find building and has no real jewelry. Me and the boy went exploring to find this place but they pretty much told us that we cold talk about what we wanted and then they could "bring it in." They really didn't have anything for us to look at there. Bleh.
