I was referred to Cheryl from a friend who had just gotten married. He told me that I would be throwing away my money if I went anywhere else. I was skeptical of this, I thought that I was educated about diamonds, and understood what I was shopping for. I had been shopping for a diamond & band for about 3 months. I went to just about every jewelry store in Richmond, VA. I decided to take my friends advice and talk to Cheryl just to see what she was all about. Cheryl and I corresponded on the phone a few times so that she could determine what type of diamond I was looking for. About a week after that she brought me into her office for a diamond education, and to show me two stones. Two weeks after that, I picked up my fiancée's engagement ring. I got a MUCH higher quality diamond than any other store even carried, the band was more beautiful than any other jewelry store had in stock. Since Cheryl works by herself, her overhead costs of running the business are low, and she passes the savings on to the purchaser. What I paid for the ring is far less than it appraised for. My fiancee continually gets compliments from her ring, and all of my friends are very impressed with it. Everyone I know who isn't married already has already pledged their loyalty, and plan on doing business with Cheryl in the future. I dare you to shop everywhere for a diamond, and then talk to Cheryl. You won't be disappointed.

As a guy, buying jewelry for a girlfriend, fiance, or wife can be an overwhelming ordeal, especially for something as important as an engagement. I was apprehensive about beginning the process of engagement ring shopping because I did not even know where to begin. Most of all, I didn't want to go to a chain jewelry store and pick out a ring that a thousand other women already have on their fingers. A friend referred me to Cheryl Fornash and assured me a personal experience and a guarantee that my money would go farther with her, than any fine jewelry shop I could find. This was an understatement. Cheryl helped take the nerves out of searching for such an important gift. She will work with anybody on any budget and meet with you as many times as it takes to get you that perfect ring your significant other will love. I did not think it was possible to get a diamond and ring, of such superb quality for the budget I was working with. Cheryl is the definition of professional. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for quality jewelry and a personal experience. Moreover, I feel compelling loyalty to her for all her help, and look forward to working with her again shortly when my fiance and I pick out our wedding bands.
I came to Cheryl Fornash wanting a personal experience without the added stress of commercial retail jewelry salesmen pressuring me to make hasty decisions regarding buying my fiancée's engagement ring. Cheryl took her time finding the perfect stone for me at the price I needed. She refuses to allow sub-par diamonds to even be considered in presenting to her clients. She educated me on diamond grading and why prices can vary so drastically. She was also willing to postpone setting the diamond I finally chose until I could afford the setting I really wanted for my fiancée. Put simply, Cheryl made buying an engagement ring more relaxed than I thought possible. I am confident that I gave my fiancée the very best ring I could get. I strongly recommend Cheryl for any type of jewelry, but especially diamonds.
