When it comes to owning and selling jewelry, what are the do's and don'ts? Thinking like a jeweler helps people get the best deals.
I went to Mark Hadley to see about designing a ring for my fiancee in 2012. None of the other jewelers in the area had the look that I was going for and I hoped he could design something different. I called Mark to set up an appointment and he assured me that he could design something that we would fall in love with. I showed up at his office/showroom and was amazed at the jewelry on display. It looked like nothing that you see in the larger stores. I had also never been in a private showroom before so it was a bit different but a pleasant experience to be able to look through everything without worrying about other customers. Mark took me into an office where we sat down and he told me about himself and about what he does. He then wanted to know everything about my fiancee so that he could get an idea on what would be the perfect design for her. Once he had an idea about what style ring to design, he brought out an assortment of diamonds to choose from for the setting. I really wanted a natural colored diamond as opposed to a standard one and I was thrilled that he had a large selection of them in all shapes and sizes. We found a beautiful yellow diamond that was perfect for the setting. Once we had everything sorted out, I placed a deposit on the design and let him get to work. It took him less than 2 weeks to get back to me with the finished ring and I was absolutely blown away and the quality and detail when I saw it for the first time. It was everything I had hoped it could be and I honestly don't think anyone else could have made it better. When I proposed, before my fiancee could give me an answer, all she could do was look at the ring and say "WOW"! She has now had the ring for a little over two years and she still looks at it every day and she gets compliments from everyone. Overall, I had an amazing experience with Mark and although I have since moved away from Denver, I will be making a trip out there any time I need another piece of jewelry. He has made a life-long customer.
I was in the search of a nice bracelet for my mother. She was turning 60 and I wanted to buy something for her birthday that was special. I knew she liked jewelry, especially bracelets. It was very important to me to have the bracelet made specifically to my instructions. I started to search for a great jeweler in the area, but most common, large jewelry stores, will not create custom pieces. So I then turned to searching online and found several stores. I exchanged emails and phone messages with some of them and even talked on the phone but they just did not manage to satisfy my needs. It was Friday the first day of weekend when my hopes were turning down. But then I found this online jewelry website and I said to myself why not contact one more?I emailed them first asking if they can make a custom product as per my requirements. I liked that they did not promise anything at the beginning and suggested to schedule an appointment. While we were talking I discovered their professional service, excellent customer care and they listened carefully to my instructions as well as respected my wants and needs. They even suggested some solutions which were more appropriate and asked me questions about my mother to have an idea about her preferences. The final product was a wonderful bracelet with premium design and high quality finish. It was delivered in a nice, elegant wood box and made my mom a very happy person. Thank you so much Diamond Reserve!
I started to search for a jewelry set as a gift for my sister`s birthday. As she was celebrating her 25th birthday I wanted to buy her something special. I knew she liked jewelry and also her favorite color is blue, so I was looking for a pair of earrings, a bracelet and a pendant made of silver and with blue diamonds. I found a few products but they were not exactly what I had in mind. Some stores had the stones in a light blue; others had only earrings and a pendant in the set or just the bracelet. So I decided that the only way to buy the jewelry set I was thinking of was to have it custom made. I then started to look for jewelry stores but the answers I received were not friendly or helpful. Either they did not have the dark blue stones or the price was higher than my budget. One day I found this store in Denver and it got my attention with the simple and elegant design, professional image and the big Custom Jewelry button from the top of the page. I decided to try my luck with them and soon realized this was the best decision I could have ever made. They were so friendly and they listened to my wants and needs. After all the details, they presented me with all of their materials and provided information regarding the jeweler for this job as well as a great suggestions about the final version of jewelry set.The design was more than I had in my head with an excellent and sharp finish, elegant, and all packed in a nice wood box. I would recommend this store to those of you who are in search of high quality materials, great manufacturing and related consulting services.
I was totally scared to purchase an engagement ring. I had never even looked at rings before, and I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. I know a lot of men feel this way so that’s why I wanted to get the word out about the greatest and most relaxed place to buy your girlfriend an engagement ring at. The Diamond Reserve is an amazing place. No crowds, no waiting around for a salesperson and no pushy sales people forcing your to buy something. My best friend actually bought his wife’s ring here so I felt great about it when I set up my appointment. That was also great, sitting down one on one with a completely knowledgeable and informed individual, Mark, was amazing. He guided be and explained each diamond, setting, and it details at length. He answered all my questions and had no problem comparing diamonds and settings in order to stay within my budget. I was completely amazed at what I was able to afford at The Diamond Reserve, Mark and the staff there were amazing throughout the whole process. And even more importantly, my girlfriend said yes to me and was thrilled with the ring. I have told several buddies about this place and all of us have had the same great experience. I really appreciated everything they did for me and I can’t emphasize enough how excited my fiancé was about her ring.
I am now officially engaged! On my birthday, my boyfriend took me on an amazing helicopter ride across the city of Denver. The really amazing part of the ride though was that he proposed to me with a gorgeous engagement ring! The ring is so amazing but unfortunately he didn’t know my size before proposing so we had to return to the place where he bought it. The Diamond Reserve graciously sized my ring quickly and beautifully. My fiancé raved about the hospitality and the amazing service that everyone at The Diamond Reserve offered including Mark. They created a custom ring that was exactly what I had been dreaming of. Combining several of the ideas I had told my boyfriend I liked, Mark and his crew created a one of a kind ring that none of my friends have or can even come close to. While we were waiting, we decided to look at wedding bands as well. We were unable to find a wedding band that fit perfectly with my ring since it was custom made, so Mark offered to custom make my wedding band as well. This is truly an amazing place because my fiancé spent a lot of time looking around at other jewelry stores and ultimately was referred to Mark by a friend. Here he discovered that Mark offers great prices and deals on diamonds and rings. The diamond is extremely beautiful and great quality. I don’t think my fiancé could have afforded something so beautiful if he had gone somewhere else. We are so grateful for The Diamond Reserve and all they were able to do for us. Now I can’t wait to pick up my wedding band!
The Diamond Reserve is a great business where the people truly care about what you want. I walked in to The Diamond Reserve to get an engagement ring with no information and zero knowledge about diamonds, prices, jewelry or anything. Purchasing an engagement rings means that you are investing for life, because the first impression is a last impression. It's probably an ideal situation that drives most people crazy. I was lucky enough to meet with Mark Hadley, who did a marvelous job of taking me through what I was looking for.He spent a lot of time with me to teach me about diamond rings, their characteristics and styles. He showed me so many diamonds, with different clarities, colors, shapes, and sizes, until I found one that was perfect for me. In my head I was thinking about the cost. I was thinking that the cost of the rings will be very high and out of my range but when the fearful time came and I was ready to see how much this ring was going to cost me, I was shocked that it came in under my budget. He never tried to pressurize me to spend more money, and I walked out from The Diamond Reserve extremely happy with what I got.At The Diamond Reserve, they take the time to get to know you, your requirements and who you are giving the ring to. It was a pleasure to working with Mark and the family of staff here during such a stressful time. He has the patience of a saint and is truly the nicest person ever. I am so lucky to have found such amazing jewelers! I look forward to continuing our (me and my fiancée) relationship with The Diamond Reserve in the future. Every day when I look at my engagement ring, I am in awe of the work they did.I have no extra words to say about their extremely high-quality work and how great they made us (me and my fiancée) feel. We are definitely their customers for life!
Last month I visited The Diamond Reserve to hand pick my wedding ring for my wedding. Before visit The Diamond Reserve, my brother and I visited to so many other jewelry shops but none of them had the look I was going for. I understand men’s rings are extremely difficult to figure out, but not every guy wants a plain yellow band. Every shop’s stock was out of style and lacking in originality. We wanted to find something that was new, unique, and cool. We finally heard about this place and decided to try it. We saw the latest and most amazing rings, I was also pleasantly surprised to find out I could design my own ring exactly the way I wanted it. The Diamond Reserve did a great job taking care of us. The item was made perfectly from the best quality metals and stones, the price was reasonable and they guaranteed me if anything went wrong they would replace it. They had no problem taking time to meet with us and discuss the options as well as what I really wanted from the ring. It was great not only that I could choose a beautiful ring that my wife loves, but also one that I love. I get compliments on it from the men at work and several people I see in the street everyday. I now wish I had known about this place before I bought the engagement ring of my wife. They have a beautiful selection and their prices are better than anyone in the area. They are extremely nice people who want to make sure you are more than happy with the jewelry you leave their shop with and if you are not, they will do whatever they can to make it right. I know where I will go from now on if I am buying jewelry for any occasion!
We can add unforgettable creativity to our special moments in our life. Some times that moment comes to our life only one time this moment for us happened at The Diamond Reserve, the best place to achieve your jewelry dreams. I visited it because last month my daughter got married and I was able to help pick out the ring. I visited several jewelry stores and was fed up with the designs, because all were a similar pattern. Finally I found the right place. It's The Diamond Reserve. It had very good customer service. They know how to treat there customers! But the main thing is from The Diamond Reserve we were able to choose exactly what we like. There was a lot of jewelry for sale and it was at unbelievable prices. I think they can do it easily because they have a direct connection with jewelry manufactures. If you ever visit, you will feel at home, when I visited there I felt that I was visiting my own jewelry shop, because everyone there made me feel at home. The employees have proper knowledge about the jewelry that they have. There is so much jewelry to choose from as well. They designed our jewelry according to our instruction this was great. I can compare this store with others because I visited around 10-15 jewelry shops during that period. This is a great chance to make unique and original jewelry. They have the latest jewelry designs. This is one of my top rated jewelry shops in the USA. If you are looking for a trusted jewelry store this is the place that you want.
Stay away. Know what your gold is worth before selling it, but never go to Golden Nugget.
