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.
Cheryl is professional, extremely knowledgeable and provides fantastic one-on-one service that I could not come close to finding at even the nicest retail jewelers. She met with me multiple times at my convenience. I was able to work with Cheryl in person to design a totally custom engagement ring for my fiance. From the first time I called her, to the day I proposed, Cheryl made me feel extremely comfortably with the process of buying a ring, and knowing that I was getting a quality diamond at a great price. Cheryl will not only help you pick out the perfect ring, she will educate you so you know exactly what you are purchasing. My experience was so fantastic that I even met with Cheryl a few times to help my brother pick a diamond for his fiance!
I recently went to see Cheryl Fornash to have work done on my engagement ring. My husband and I had just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and as a anniversary gift we were having my ring redone. It was the best experience with a jeweler. Extreamly helpful since I had no idea where to begin. Cheryl took the time to sit and chat to see what I had in mind and then she gave me great suggestions and end result was a fabulous ring. I will use Cheryl for any future jewelry purchases we may have. I will be recommending her to any of my friends and family who want jewelry with fabulous servious and unquestionable quality. Thanks Cheryl.
My experience with Cheryl Fornash was wonderful from start to finish! She carefully listened to my request, educated me on the options available, gladly worked within my budget, and spent hours finding the perfect diamonds for my ring. Her meticulous attention to detail and her vast knowledge of diamonds, were invaluable to me. Cheryl delivered a high quality product, with an extraordinarily high level of customer service at a wonderful price (well below retail). It was a pleasure to work with Cheryl and I will definitely shop with her again. If you are in the market for fine jewelry or diamonds, Cheryl Fornash should be your first call!
Cheryl Fornash is the best jeweler to work with, bar none. I was first introduced to her by my brother in law back in 1998 when I was shopping for a wedding/engagement ring. She gave me first class service, and delivered the finest product in the end. All the while I was in California, and she in Virginia. Unfortunately my wife lost that ring, and we finally got around to replacing it this past year. This time, Cheryl out did her self and made the engagement ring more beautiful than the first, which was very hard to do. Her attention to detail is amazing. I recommend her with my highest recommendation!!!
Cheryl Fornash is terrific. My first purchase was an engagement ring for my wife twenty years ago. I've been a client of Cheryl's ever since. Incredible customer service, great advice and first rate quality. Low overhead keeps the prices far more competitive than the retail stores. But what really separates Cheryl from the crowd is the way she works with you to find the perfect piece. That's important, especially if you are guy trying to find that perfect surprise gift for your wife. That's where she has helped me time after time over the years. She's the best.
Cheryl gives friendly accommodating personal service with great knowledge of her merchandise at fair and reasonable prices. I trust her judgement and honesty as she explains and educates me on individual items. I have used her as my sole source for fine jewelery over the last ten years or so. Most recently Cheryl helped me add two diamonds to my wife's solitaire engagement ring for her 50th birthday and our anniversary. The results were stunning. I would highly recommend her to you if you are in need of fine jewelery.
Cheryl was a true pleasure to work with when I sold my diamond. She was committed to ensuring that I received the maximum value for my stone. She made recommendations to improve the value of the stone and did all of the legwork to make it happen. When Cheryl commits to you, she ALWAYS follows through. I truly appreciate the time she took to make this happen for me. I would absolutely go to Cheryl again for my jewelery needs.
