My gf and I came here while we were on vacation and we found the perfect set of rings. We are planning a civil ceremony back in Chicago in the fall and a lot of places there aren't as acccommodating about bein able to find matching rings - everything is too bland or the salesstaff is rude. Here - no judgements like that of any kind!

I've never seen such good prices on top quality diamond jewelry. The deals here are almost as good as their friendly, not pushy staff.

Was surprised at their prices - they are better than I've seen anywhere and I found the perfect earrings. I've been looking for a unique pair of diamond and emerald earrings for a while - these are stunning!

Was looking for something for my wife for Cristmas and found a pair of beautiful diamond earrings - nice cut, very sparkly - which is what she loves. Much better prices than at the mall jewelry stores, glad a coworker recommended this place.

I was in the market for an engagement ring and a friend that purchases a lot of jewelry recommended George Thompson Jewelry due to his direct diamond purchasing and private facility in Bangkok. My budget was limited but I wanted something unique for my bride to be. I met George and his daughter Kathleen (and later his wife) at the store after mentioning that I had been referred and was in initially pleased that this was very much a family business.I worked with George, Kathleen and Sue to design an entirely new ring. The design was done right there at the store. The process was fun and George's staff were always courteous and helpful. George quoted me a price that was considerably less (thousands) than I had received from other jewelers for similar work and diamonds, and after I approved it, the design was sent to Bangkok to be built. It arrived a little while later and the results were fantastic. George named it ""The Hope"" ring after my fiance', also named Hope. George asked if he could include it in his marketing and newsletters. We couldn't have been more pleased. Hope said yes to my proposal, and since then we have purchased several additional items. Each time receiving the best customer service, respect and prices anywhere.If you are looking for quality service, a family atmosphere and the best prices, Hope and I recommend without reservation that you take a look at George Thompson Jewelry. We did and now have a jewelry connection for life

""My fiancee and I bought our engagement ring at George Diamond Co. He spent a good amount of money on the ring. I took it to get cleaned with another jeweler just a few weeks later and to my alarm the jeweler informed me that my diamond was CRACKED! There was a huge chip on the side of the diamond, that was visible even without magnification. I could feel the crack when I ran by fingernail along the crack. When I confronted George Thompson's associates about it they denied that it was cracked and said that it had a ""natural dent"" that was internal in the stone. When I showed them that I could feel the crack, they changed their story and said that the diamond had formed that way ""billions"" of years ago in the earth. Instead of giving me a free trade-in they were going to charge me $400 more for a new diamond. I demanded my money back and had them take the diamond back. I took the ring to a different jeweler and got a brilliant diamond with no crack. My fiancee and I are young and hardworking, and were excited to be able to afford a ring. We felt very disrespected, deceived, and taken advantage of. I would NEVER recommend this company to ANYONE.""
