Planning a wedding on a budget is nerve wracking. Searching for wedding bands only adds to the tension, wanting something memorable at the right price. I just returned from ring shopping and I'm actually smiling. My fiance and I went to Market Street Gold on a recommendation from my father. We were very skeptical. . Well, "lo and behold", this place was awesome! First, we were able to find street parking right on 10th. There was "kiosk" parking above and below Market on 10th, which surprised us. Then, we entered the store and were greeted by a pleasant staff. Maria was only too glad to help us and made us both feel relaxed. When we had numerous questions, Anthony, an owner, introduced himself. He was very knowledgeable as well as personable and answered all our questions. The atmosphere was so pleasant, we spent much longer than anticipated searching for the perfect rings. We were never rushed, which led us to totally changing our plan and choosing rings we never thought we would like or could afford. Sizing the rings was also an easy task. Even though my fiance wears larger than a 15, the rings will be done quickly. This was such a positive experience. We purchased gorgeous rings of great quality that will last a life time and we found a new jewelers for our family. This find will definitely come in handy since we have two daughters with a taste for "bling". Thank you Market Street Gold for your high quality pieces, great staff and excellent service. Check out their web site too for a taste.
"I don't know how I lived before I met you!!!" I am a person who really spend money on jewelry. I deal with many jewelers on a regular basis. Yet when it came down to my very engagement ring, I was far lost into the haystack. Since I am not, in theory, the purchaser of the ring, yet the one who wear it, we had to work with his budget to get the ring that I can be happy wearing. It was like a 6 month quest that we almost lost hope, until we walked into D'Antonio & Kline by our dumb-luck one Sat afternoon. We finished our engagement ring journey with a 'happy-ever-after'. We had gone thru probably 20 jewelers - new ones & ones I regular deal with. We were shopping for a 2+ carats eye-clean around G-I color with $8500 budget for diamond. It was a long, but very bearable process with John holding our hand. By the final chapter, we walked out with 3.15 cts eye-clean GIA center stone w/ 4.65 cts total carats. We pushed our envelop on the budget to close to $11,000 for the whole project, yet we can't be happier. Needless to say, D'Antonio & Kline is my jeweler from now on. Special Thanks to John & Jonathan! Now only if we can make the wedding planning as smoothly as dealing with D&K, we will be in the perfect world.
My boyfriend & I made the trip to Jewelers Row from the Jersey Shore to shop for an engagement ring, we stopped into a few stores and Harzin was one of them. Susan Newman helped us, she was wonderful. She sat down with us and helped us pick out a ring. After I selected a few I liked, she started pulling ones she thought I might like, throwing in a few that were a little different from the "style" I was looking for. (which I really liked because the ring I ended up liking the most wasn't what I was originally looking for) I tried on at least 25 different settings and then she picked out a loose diamond to place into each of the settings to narrow down the choices. She was very patient with us and didn't mind spending the time to pick out the "perfect" ring. She was very educated about diamonds and let us use the scope to show us the difference between a good diamond and a "bad" diamond. She was very respectful of our budget and wasn't pushy at all. I definietly recommend stopping at Harzin if you are looking on Jewelers Row.
