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.

My wife and I had heard all of the hype of Global Diamonds on the radio. After almost 6 years of putting up with Kay's (and being thoroughly disappointed time and time again), we decided to give Global Diamonds a shot. From the second that we set foot inside of their "showroom", we knew that we were in for a completely different experience. We were promptly greeted by Nathan Burgess. Nathan showed incredible knowledge and patience, not only with my wife and I, but our 3 year old Daughter. Nathan took the time to explain the certification and classes of Diamonds and how it works to create the perfect ring for my perfect Wife. We ended up not only buying a new engagement ring, but a new wedding band for my Wife AND me. Nathan is the definition of "Customer Service", in fact, he made it much more personal. Global Diamonds struck gold when hiring him. Because of the Professionalism and Expertise that Nathan demonstrated, not to mention how he represented Global Diamonds, we will now be life long clients. This was such an enjoyable experience and we look forward to our next visit. Thank you Nathan and Global Diamonds. It's worth every penny and more to see the radiant joy and smiles from my Wife every single time she looks at her rings. Thank you again for such an enjoyable visit!!
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?
I was looking for a special necklace for my 25th wedding anniversary. After looking extensively online, I went to several jewelers at Town Center. Beard's was hands down the best one. They took a lot of time to find out what I was looking for and then showed me a variety of lovely options. I had trouble deciding and went back several times. They were always very courteous and never pressured me at all. It was important for me to get just the right pendant and while they had some that were almost what I was looking for, as we discussed options they told me that they could custom make one. This was the perfect solution for me. Again, they never rushed me and instead provided precise renderings that I tweaked several times. In the end I got a really beautiful necklace that was exactly what I had hoped for. I highly recommend Beard's to anyone looking for high quality jewelry at a fair price, especially those interested in custom pieces.
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.
Gary has worked with me for over 10 years. He has always been direct and to the point, having helped me on MANY occasions with Watches and other antique jewellery repairs and yes he has switched out my diamonds twice for BETTER ONES that fit the setting and helped make my wife VERY happy. I don't know about the negative feedback and I am not in Gary's pocket, but I have NEVER had anything but great results. Yes sometimes when you have an owner who is as much an artist with his work you get some people that cant deal with it, but I would rather have Gary tell me how terrible something was then have most of the others I have dealt with gotten away with trying to sell anything. He has fixed things worked things and just about did all he could do to bend over backwards to help me over the past decade so I give him 5 Stars - Thanks Gary, Best Greg
@WBORRAS107.. Ok so I checked this place out based on the recommended list. You WBORRAS107 claimed that a stone was stolen from your ring. I decided to look at all your ratings on other businesses and you claimed that other jewelers at different times also stole your stone at those establishments. How can you take the same ring resized over and over again to different places and each place stole your tanzanite (fake-diamond) stone? What in the world!!! I think you need to stop trying to discredit honest businesses and stop making false claims. As a matter of fact you came in again recently and I happened to be shopping at Fine's Jewler that day about 4 months ago and you said that 4 jewlers on Atlantic Blvd stole your stone. No one stole your stone but someone stole your mind... Stay off that stuff it's not cigarette!
I'm trying to figure out how there is such a huge discrepancy in reviews. I've been met with nothing but courtesy. I took an antique ring of grandmothers to have a stone replaced. I was very specific with the quality and type of stone I wanted a London blue Topaz. Not only did they find the perfect soon and have it set it was ready in about a week and absolutely stunning. I have purchased several items from Mandarin jewelry and while their selection is small they have many unique pieces you would not see in some plain old chainstore. Their prices are extremely reasonable and lower them up many other competitors. I will continue to shop there and refer them to friends. It's a big A+ from me!!
Thanks for therecomment YP. I just moved here and searchede YP for local businesses and I wanted to know what all the reviews were about --so I decided to have my ring restoned or should I say re-blinged.. :) But hey, I just moved here so how can I afford to put the bling that I want. Well, I did some research and took my ideas to Fine's Jewler. I showed them the mossanite radiant cut 1 carat that I wanted on my ring. I also showed them the price that I found the loose stone on the internet. Do you know that they were able to beat that price? It was less than the internet loose stone because with labor I didn't pay anywhere near that. Thanks for the recommend YP.
This is excellent place. Great customer service even though I thought at first we had a language barrier but they understood what I wanted done to have my jewelry customized. Very happy w/the reasults. So glad I found this place coz I also bought a ring for my wife and she was so happy coz it really seemed one of a kind and it was w/thin our budget. Even if we didn't pay too much the jewelry was quality and the gold was heavy so it felt expensive but we only paid little bit. I like this place and I recomend to ppl.
