I bought a ring on a cruise and called the lab prior to going in. Steve, the owner gave me some details about rings, warranties and his services. I later went into the lab and he assessed my purchase. He seemed very thorough and we discussed all of the characteristics of the ring. In addition, he cleaned my ring, checked for loose stones and also answered a few other questions I had. I was very pleased w/ the price and the service. I will return w/ any jewelry related issue I may have; either for a referral or his service.
Jeff has appraised my house more than once. He allways dose a good job. And he didn't complain eventhough he had to climb through the jungle in my back yard.
You don't have to be rich to have nice things
They are a tiny place outside of Sears in Parkway Plaza, but a must check out each time you are there. They have a variety of prices, variety of styles and pieces that you didn't realize you were looking for. My favorite is that they will talk to you whether you look like you can afford their jewelry or not. Very encouraging when talking to you. I have ended up with many nice items from them.
