I too have done numerous business with this company. My first encounter was when my husband bought me a ring from here. Then he turned around and bought earrings and a pendant to match. The reason why we went back is that my set is so unique. I love the reaction I get from friends and even other jewelers are astonished at the beauty of my new set. What's more amazing is that they don't realize how little we paid for these. I'll keep that a secret and continue to get complements. What's more amazing is my original wedding ring consisted of 1.60 carat diamond invisible setting. If you are familiar with invisible settings you'll agree that once one of them loosens then all the little stones holding each other will come out. I originally had one of the stones put back in with another dealer. To my disappointment, I was charged a great deal and all they used were jewelry glue and I was also charged to have it rhodium plated. So two months later the diamond fell out and then another and then another. The original jeweler said they couldn't reset so I took it to Fine's Jeweler. They not only rechanneled the setting of the invisible setting but re-rhodiumed for free and even did the engraving of our anniversary inside our rings. Talk about a steal. Here it is now 7 months later and my husband decided to remove the top section of my ring that holds .50 carat of the 1.60 invisible setting to have them put a solid 1.30 carat, emerald cut, &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;I&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;quot; color, bezel setting with four prongs to make it look like the original but now with a solid top and the invisible settings on each side. When I asked about having this done at the first jeweler they named a price that was worth just buying a new ring, but Fine's Jeweler got the job done. Need I remind you that this is my wedding ring so I was very, very, very, very particular about how it was to look and my expectations of what should be done. I am so happy that I can't stop staring at my newly upgraded ring. Their labor here is so inexpensive that I save a ton of money. If you don't believe me, Google how much this type of work is, then compare with your local jewelers, then compare with Fine's. As for the original top of my ring with the invisible setting, they turned it into a pendant. And since he had already reset/rechanneled the diamonds, my invisible setting is intact even when I jog. Very affordable. They re-rhodiumed everything without extra charge. This is an awesome ma and pa shop. Proud to have them in Jacksonville.
I have done numerous business with this company and have had all my jewelry custom designed. I must say they are the most affordable with great quality. They carry such vast unique designs unlike what you would fine in a mall jewelry dealers who are named and priced by such variety but the jewelry you'd find at the mall all resemble one another. I have purchased several of their quality jewelry and have not had any problems. Very, very affordable at high quality rate. I have shopped all over Jacksonville, Daytona and Orlando just to find high quality work on my jewelry that was passed down to me and many of them quoted me outrages prices but Fine's Jeweler got all the sizing, repairs and re-rhodiumed over my yellow golds. Outstanding work! And did I mention a fraction of the cost. It is worth the drive to find a jeweler that I can trust with my priceless inheritance. BTW I also had my same jewelry taken to the Jewelers in the Bank of America Bldg in Regency and they couldn't even touch the prices Fine's Jewelry gave to me. Let's face it, the labor is so much cheaper and the people here are trust worthy and is a perfectionist at their work. Why wouldn't you trust someone like that to handle your priceless stones?
Ok so I was told by a friend about how this jeweler engraved her jewelry. Well, I decided to ask Fine's Jewelers if they would do work that is not related to jewelry. I called places like &amp;amp;amp;quot;Things Remembered,&amp;amp;amp;quot; engraving companies, and binderies. Many were out of Jacksonville and those who were here locally charged so much. I called Fine's if they can somehow have my son's name and baptism date put on a Bible that I got for him. Granted this is a leather book and they don't stamp leathers so they gave the idea to put on a bronze name plate and they engraved the info on it and attach to the Bible. Do you know that it was done at only 20% of what I would have paid anywhere else? The work was beautiful and I must say, we are one of the firsts ones to have our Bible engraved this way. Unique, creative, beautiful and while it was cheap the work and the gift is priceless.
