I highly recommend Esken's! After having my ring resized at a different jeweler, where they damaged a diamond, claimed it was bought like that, and then said they could fix it for $, I was nervous to trust anyone else with my ring. When I dropped my ring off at Esken's, Donald was very honest telling me that fixing the diamond could create a greater issue since the diamond and band are thin. Although I was disappointed hearing that (not Esken's fault) Donald's honesty, confidence, and knowledge about jewelry made me know that I brought my ring to the right place. 2 weeks later my ring was done! It fits perfectly now, is 100% round, and I can't even tell which diamond was damaged from the other jeweler! Donald called himself to let me know my ring was finished, which also showed how much he cares about his customers. Lesson learned, if a jeweler is willing to repair your jewelry in 4 hrs, dont trust them! Jewelry repairs take time! You can 100% trust Esken Jewelers with your repairs!
I recently went to Paul for an engagement ring , and it couldn't have been a more pleasant experience! He took our ideas and molded them into reality... he made what i was dreading into a fun, creative experience! He was super flexible as far as making himself available for questions and concerns and the drafting/design process... a consummate professional and artist! Paul's design are on the cutting edge of fit, function and aesthetics. You'll be hard pressed to find an artist and jeweler of the same caliber in this area.. so if your bored with the jewelry box stores that are becoming the norm and looking for a piece that is "you" get dahn to Shadyside and see Paul! I highly recommend and ill be coming back!
My experience with Yuriys Jewelry was absolutely amazing. I have bought a few pieces from Yuriy now. This is a store that I will definitely recommend to anyone I know. The jewelers at the store are at the top of their A-game with evident knowledge of jewelry. All the pieces I buy from yuriys jewelry never seem to disappoint me or my family. The prices at yuriys are more than reasonable and are very affordable. The jewelry at Yuriys is a selection that is beyond belief. The collection is more like a New York City high end jewelry store in our own town. I will be sure to reccomend this awe-inspiring business to everyone. This is surely a place worth visiting!!!
