I'm a real stickler for good manners and customer service and was pleasantly suprised when I popped in to Hartman Jewelers a few weeks back. These guys are so nice and the owner, John Hartman, seems to really know his onions. Apparantly he's been in the business for 20years, spending half that time @ a wholesaler and half @ Huffords. I was an occasional customer of Nowaks, the previous owner, and was curious to see what Hartman Jewelers was like now. They've spruced it up and carry a lot more modern looking jewelry, which is nice. I'm a sucker for white gold, which I think they carry a lot more of now. After I found out that they buy gold (AT MUCH better prices that the other guys! Be careful where you go and compare your prices before you go in! ) and that you can apply the $ you get to a new purchase, I treated myself to the most gorgeous string of mocha colored pearls. I've never seen anything like them - all my girlfriends ask where I got them...I'm tempted not to tell! Anyway, I'm about as picky as you can get and I was really impressed their newer stock, how knowledgeable the owner was and how nice everyone in the place was. And I dont think it was my imagination, but their prices seemed a lot more reasonable than some of the big guys in town. Nice people. Next time you're going to Dierburgs in Warson Woods, pop next door to check them out

Fox Jewelers has better quality and much better priced jewelry than any of the large, brand name mall stores, and they have the best customer service I have ever come across. Nick Fox deals with customers individually and works with them to find what best suits their needs. My fiancee and I went to Fox for both her ring and my own, and we were treated very professionally and courteously across the entire experience of researching stones, comparing prices, and eventually settling on our purchase. Although his showroom is rather small, he is willing to order in whatever it is you are looking for, have it cleaned and ready for you in under 24 hours, and sell it to you at a very reasonable price. An honest jeweler is difficult to find, but Fox is one of them, and they have our business any time we are in St. Louis. They come highly recommended to anyone intending to make a major purchase in the near future.
Not only do i think this guy is the best jeweler and the best kept secret in town (off the top of my head, his diamonds are the clearest i've seen compared to some of the bigger chain jewelry stores) but he's a St. Louisan - he gave away silver necklaces to unemployed and homeless people for Valentine's day! didnt see any other jewelers, or St. Louis companies for that matter, doing anything like that....just my opinion though. I think Mr. Robinson is a great jeweler who is willing to work on anything you bring him and he'll do it right, no questions about that
