STAY FAR FAR AWAY FROM HERE! BIG TIME SCAMMER!This place seemed perfect at first. I needed to service a vintage watch. When I had called Tony on the phone, he claimed he had experience servicing "hundreds of those polerouters" so I decided to trust him. First major mistake. I had a good feeling leaving him my watch that first day. He seemed like a really nice dude. A few weeks later he called and gave me his quote for full clean/service/inspection/adjustment, replacement of two gears, and replacement of the crystal. I told him I didn't want to replace the crystal because it had a rare rhomboid shaped date magnifier that came with the original watch. I finally agreed upon his initial quote minus the cost of crystal. Every two weeks or so I would call to ask for updates, and two months later he finally said it was done. I went to pick it up and he said that he had ended up replacing the crystal. Without being able to look inside at the watch movement (gears and stuff) I paid and left.Later on I looked closer at my crystal and noticed a small crack in the top left corner which had been there before I gave him the watch for servicing. The date magnifier was also the exact same rare shape. I then knew he had lied about replacing the crystal, and that's when I became suspicious. I sent the watch to my watchmaker friend (who I hadn't wanted to initially because it required shipping out of state) and my suspicions were confirmed. No servicing at all, all pivots were dry (no oil), it was dirty throughout, the gasket was dry and cracked/rotting, there was dirt throughout the movement, the automatic rotor was loose, the rotor was rubbing against the caseback creating a grinding noise, and the watch was running 30 seconds slow. And he said that was only a small part of the list of problems. SCAMMER! He lied, did no service whatsoever, not even cleaning. And charged me hundreds for the service. Do not go here if you care about your valuables at all.

I first walked into Lucas Jewelry in 2004. I was looking for a wedding ring for my soon to be husband. Luke did not have anything but told me he could make a custom ring for me. I was very pleased with the results. My husband has since passed away and I went back to Luke for ideas to combine…
I was searching best jewelry in Houston, and suddenly someone told me about “Jewelry Depot Houston” and I visited them and I saw that they have large collection of diamond jewelry. So I got something special for someone special. Many thanks

Kip Stodghill as well as the other staff members at Galaxie are absolutely wonderful. I had a ring that had been mercilessly stuck on me for 2 whole days and was causing me a lot of pain. I spent hours trying to remove it and even at my local fire department hoping that they could cut it off. Af…

Flying from Columbus, OH to Tucson. Due to airplane problems we had to stay the night in Houston on Continental's dime. The shuttle beneath the airport is fabulous and the hotel they put us in was nothing short of luxurious. We had a alte check-in resulting in a security check but the personn…
Great customer service! I bought a tennis bracelet from them and my wife loves it. Lifetime guarantees and they do repairs on site so it never has to ship away.
I was in Houston for a few days and thought I would have a better shot of getting my mechanical skeleton watch repaired here than in my home town. Brought it in on a Tuesday and explained my situation: flying out early Friday morning, so I would need it back by Thursday afternoon. The guy said sure, as long as it doesn't require parts (which I knew it wouldn't; the stem had pulled out and a gear had come loose... just needed to be reset). I asked for an estimate and he said no. That should have been my hint right there, but I went ahead and left it with him.Thursday I called and asked about the status. He said it would be ready by 4:00 and that they closed at 6:00. I had a final chance to meet with some old friends that night, so time was somewhat tight, but that sounded like it would work.I showed up at 3:45 to find the store locked and dark. No answer to knocking and the phone went to voicemail. Waited outside the store until 5:10, fuming the whole time. Guy finally showed up, and offered no apology or explanation of any kind, and talked extensively about how much he had going on later that evening. Yeah, me too, guy... friends I hadn't seen in 10 years and you just cost me a valuable hour of that time. The bill came to 1/3 the original cost of the watch... no parts, just labor... setting a gear. I did a similar repair a couple of years before elsewhere for $25.Two days in, the quality of the repair seems fine. But customer service, attitude, and cost were just beyond the pale.
My boyfriend asked me to pick out a diamond ring and he would pay for it. What a DEAL! My search was on. I went to MANY jewelry stores and Wholesalers. I stumbled onto Shoshana Diamond Store. I was greeted with open arms and feel in love with the staff. Shoshana and Nissim, her son, have been such a pleasure to work with. After my initial visit I took my boyfriend so he could see what diamond and setting I wanted. I had picked out a Marque at 1 carat and he asked to see more and he bought me a much larger stone since the price was right. They will make everything right and are always happy to please you. My new ring is stunning and is PERFECT and hands down this is the best Diamond Wholesaler in Houston. If you are in need of a diamond, other precious stone, a custom piece of jewelry then go here and no need to look any further. Thanks for making my Engagement Ring one that is Perfect!!
I would not even give these guys one star the only reason I did because they would not post my review without a rating! They are not good business people. I know the goal is to make money but I don`t like to get screwed.
My fiancé bought my engagement ring at this location, and that experience was great so we went back there to buy our wedding bands. I knew exactly what I wanted and my fiancé only liked and tried on 4 rings. I waited close to 5 minutes before even being acknowledged and when I FINALLY was the manager sent some jerk to help us. The ENTIRE time our salesman ( older guy I think his name was Camille) treated us like we were inconveniencing him by being there. Apparently buying $400 wedding bands makes us a waste of time.. We survived him attempting to pawn us off on someone else who was already busy then being rude to us at check out, until he saw we already had a Jared credit card. It was so disturbing. I've never been somewhere (especially a jewelry store) and treated so poorly! EVER! My fiancé and I were so upset we came home and bought Rings ONLINE because the fool salesman didn't even offer us the warranty! No warranty?!? You'd get better service probably from a pawn shop a few miles down the road. We are returning our rings tomorrow and NEVER going back to this location AGAIN!
Kip Stodghill as well as the other staff members at Galaxie are absolutely wonderful. I had a ring that had been mercilessly stuck on me for 2 whole days and was causing me a lot of pain. I spent hours trying to remove it and even at my local fire department hoping that they could cut it off. After thinking that I would have to go to the ER to pay to get it medically removed, Kip took under 10 minutes to snap it off with the tools he had in the back, and did not charge me a thing. He is professional, knowledgable, polite, courteous, and an all-around phenomenal person. After thinking that I would have to get my finger removed, Kip saved my life. I'll be going to him for any professional jewelry service from now. Thank you, Kip!
Bought a wedding ring from them in October, by the end of December it had lost a stone. If you buy anything from them and want it to be covered under warranty (and believe me, you need it to be covered under warranty) you have to take it in every 6 months to get it examined and make sure that everything is secure. I wouldn't wait 6 months, you need to get it examined every 3 months because they sell crap that falls apart! the settings are loose so get your stones appraised because you will lose them. I would tell my friends to save their money and go to Walmart for or a pawn shop before wasting your money here. That smug, patronizing a$$ of a salesman admitted it and wouldn't give me my money back!
They have the most amazing things i have not seen anywhere, and they will actually make something special for you if you want it.
