When it was time to propose to my girlfriend I had no idea where to go. I didn't want to go to the mall because I didn't feel like I was going to get a great deal hearing about how much of a mark up jewelry has. Even with a 70% off sale I felt like I wasn't going to get the greatest deal. I also didn't want to get a ring for my girl that everyone else had. A friend of mine told me about Bijoux in Lake Mary and said the jeweler was very honest and was very creative and his prices were very fair. I went to see them and was more than happy with the service and options. I told him my budget and showed him a few pictures of what style rings she had been looking at. He was able to combine all of the best features of those rings and create a one of a kind ring for her. Not only that but I was able to use some of my mother and grandmothers gold and diamonds in the ring which help save me money and also added some sentimental value which was important to both of us. When I presented the ring to her she was so happy. It never occurred to me how much more special it would be to her that I didn't go out and just buy a stock ring out of a showcase, that was what surprised me the most. I got major thoughtfulness points. I recommend Glen the jeweler to everyone I can. Great, great experience.
If you are looking for an HONEST person in the jewelry business to deal with this is the place. My mom went to at least 4 other gold places in town and when she came here they offered her hundreds of dollars more than what was offered at the other places. She was also told at 2 other places that some of her gold was only 10 carat when it was actually 14. Big difference in price! The jeweler at Bijoux could of told her the same and she would not have known but he was honest and paid her so well. I also had my bracelet fixed while we waited and because he was so busy with other customers and we had to wait a few minutes he didn't even charge me. Best customer service anywhere. So polite and friendly. My boyfriend and I are getting ready to get engaged and we will DEFINIATELY be coming to Glen.
I literally visited every jewlery shop in Lake Mary to get a quote on having my ring re-pronged. I was appalled at what the cost was going to be until a friend at work recommended I go see Glen. He quoted me half the price (befoer I even told him what everyone else was charging) and when the ring was returned to me he not only re pronged it but he cleaned it and made it look like BRAND NEW! Anytime I have ever had work done they do just whats asked and give it back wehther it's dirty or clean. Glen's attention to detail and caring enough to make my treasured ring look as beautiful as possible really impressed me beyond words. He definitely has a customer for LIFE.
I brought some old jewelry to glenn the jeweler because my co-worker told me he pays more than anyone. I actually brought my jewelery to 3 other places in lake mary and sanford to get prices and was shocked to find that bijoux really did pay more. WAY more. Don t waste your time going to chain gold buying places or so called gold parties you ll get ripped off. GO SEE GLENN!
