Jennifer and I discussed what kind of ring she wanted - - a basic, traditiional princess cut solitaire. If not a solitaire - than no more than a couple of small diamonds on the side... nothing fancy or busy. I wanted to go off on my own and find the right ring so as to surprise her with it. I visited several jewelry and department stores in the Galleria and around the city. Nothing I saw struck me as being "the one" . . . unless it was far out of my price range - and that goes for both the ring and the diamond. Even though you couldn't see the major flaws with the naked eye - I knew they were there because I saw them through the loupe. I've known Stephen for a long time - but never knew he and his wife were in the jewelry business - until I voiced my frustration to him. I told him what I wanted and my budget. He showed me some diamonds that were in my price range - and I was pleased with the selection. His wife then drew several designs - - and after adjusting to my requests - she came up with exactly what I wanted. Not long afterwards - the diamond ring was presented to me - and I knew I found "the one". I presented it to my fiance during my birthday party - and she absolutely loves it. Stephen and Esperanza went out of their way to make us happy - and I'm already recommending them to my friends who're in the market. I was so pleased with the ring - I invited them to the birthday party where I surprised my love with a serenade on horseback. That serenade and proposal was captured by KHOU Channel 11 and the Houston Chronicle. You can view it on youtube - if you'd like to watch it. http://youtu.be/rVnz4YawkFg

As a midwest financial consultant, I am very sceptical about sending jewelry to someone I have never met. I had spoken with several internet jewelry buyers about my certified wedding set. A few months ago, I sent it to one in New York who offered much more than the rest. He dropped his offer after he had it in hand. I had little trust after that, but recently resumed my investigation. I sent an online inquiry to Jonathan's Fine Jewelers in Texas. I promptly received a call from Sergio Nuncio. He impressed me from the very beginning with a calm, confident demeanor, an excellent knowledge of his business and an honest, straight-forward approach to answering all my questions. He demonstrated genuine integrity through all our numerous communications and dealings. He said he would give me the most he could and gave me a minimum number. After several days, I was finally ready to send my rings. Sergio spoke with me the day he received the rings and overnighted a check to me the next business day for a little more than I expected. I had done a great deal of research and knew what my rings were worth. It was top dollar. Sergio was one of the nicest business people I have dealt with in some time. I deal with professional people every day and I know for a fact that finding someone with knowledge, expertise, integrity and honesty is indeed rare. My only regret is I did not choose him to deal with him from the very beginning. Thanks again Sergio! Gary Miller T&M Financial, Inc. Topeka, Kansas
On June 5, 2013 my husband I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. July 5, 2013 I lost my original wedding set with a 10 year anniversary band. I waited a couple of weeks, just knowing it would show up, all the time looking at settings and rings available on websites and stores. I was just not finding what I wanted. Some of my co-workers had used Merida for upgrades and customs, so I began a journey and sent 3 photos of rings, stating what I did like, and did not like, about each one. In just one revision, Esperanza had the perfect design for me. The journey began and we loved the education and information we received on our initial meeting with Esperanza and Stephan. Well, the old set was found by feeling deep in my purse through one of the liners. After taking a look at it my dear husband said that it was time for the upgrade anyway. Next the diamond was selected and we got to meet the bench craftsmen that work their magic from wax, to casting to polishing under the microscope. I received photos of the progress and the excitement was building. The day came for us to take possession and we were headed out of town. What service we received when Stephen delivered my ring to our home and drove through a rainstorm to get it to me. I can’t express how grateful and blessed I feel to have my custom ring of my dreams on my finger. I still look with a bit of surprise followed by giddiness! Now at some point, I will have Merida design a pendant from my old set to compliment my beautiful new ring.
My husband & me bought the ring in 2010 from the exclusive collection of Jewelry "Jewelry Depot Houston", we bought the beautiful triangular shaped ravishing diamond ring, it was in the rate of 7000 $, however my expectations were not high but it really appraised it just for its quality & nothing more than that. It’s rate was also just according to its quality which is worthy. Now also it’s shinning, purple color & design is really stunning. If it will be out of business then also I never will think about to sale or exchange it on any other jewelry showroom. Because I am happy & really love this exquisite ring which is also very comfort to wear. In fact I want to get more jewelry in the near future i.e. on our 3rd Wedding Anniversary Occasion from the Jewelry Depot Houston & never want to buy from any other jewelry showroom. This really facilitates me & my husband both with friendly atmosphere, not burden for the payment also.
My husband and I have been using Haddad Jewelers for about 3 years. He's had links in watches replaced, my wedding ring sized and diamond replaced, many things. My husband and I went on a fishing trip one weekend. I never wear my jewelry while out fishing, but my husband was wearing his wedding band. As he was moving a generator in the bed of the truck, he slid it too hard and smashed his ring on his finger. It was so badly bent, and basically deformed that I had to pry it off his finger. We went in to Haddad's and they said no problem. They called us back a few days later, after realigning the diamonds and added more gold to the ring for a more smooth finish, the ring looked brand new. I was ultimately amazed. I've never seen such great workmanship. I will continue to use Haddad's Jewelers and have recommended them to many friends and clients and will continue to do so.
Fabulous Experience! I first met GreenOro several years ago when I needed a routine ring cleaning and looked up "Jewelers" in Best of Texas. They were a delight to get to know, and as a musician I appreciated how they approached their Green jewelry design with passion and artistry. I made a mental note that if I ever wanted to design a piece, I would return.... Fast-forward to last summer, when my fiance and I became engaged and wanted to craft a special Green Diamond ring in "our" synesthetic colors. My ring is gorgeous and has exactly the symbolism we were wanting. If you are looking for personalized service and excellent value from highly experienced gemologists, you will love working with the Yontefs. The process will take somewhat longer than simply selecting a ring from a GreenOro jewelry outlet or Greenoro website.
After shopping around at other jewelers, we were so happy to find Houston Diamond Outlet. The staff was friendly, warm, and gave us lots of great ideas for choosing our ring. At first we were a bit overwhelmed with the idea of creating our own ring; we didn't know how it would turn out. But we knew that the other jewelry stores didn't have exactly what we wanted. After just a short time with Maggie, we knew that we were in good hands, and every step of the process was more and more exciting. The whole experience of designing our ring was wonderful. Having a one-of-a-kind ring means a lot to us. We feel that our love is very special and unique, as I'm sure a lot of couples do, and only a very unique ring would feel right. We love looking at our ring together. It's perfect!"

Since I work downtown, I stopped in to Renato's to obtain a value estimate on some gold pieces. The owner, Renato, tested all of the gold that was not marked, showed me the current market value and that of the company that he sells to, and then he explained what his "cut" of that would be. He was very honest and straightforward, and I could not be happier with the outcome. He wrote me a check then and there and told me I could cash it upstairs. It was a great experience, and I would recommend anyone in the downtown area to see him if you're interested in selling your gold jewelry. I looked around at some of the jewelry pieces in the cases, and most were beautiful! He does great work, so I will be going back to replace some stones, etc.
I firmly believe that when you buy an exceptional piece of jewelry it is the same as purchasing an exceptional piece of art. And when you are trusting someone to create your personal signature statement piece you not only need the right person to help guide the process, you must have unconditional trust in that person. I found that right person in Esperanza Vaughan at Merida Fine Custom Jewelry. Esperanza’s one-on-one attention to creating my ring, my statement piece, was the best decision I have ever made. Her guidance and recommendations resulted in the perfect ring for me. The exceptional craftsmanship and brilliance has everyone asking -where did you get that ring – and I answer, not where but who – Esperanza Vaughan, Merida Fine Custom Jewelry.
