Sunday 3/16/14, my fiancé and I went shopping for a final setting to my engagement ring on 47th Street. Our wedding day was nearing, and I was still uncertain of the setting I wanted (Halo or not). We visited a few stores, all were helpful, but at a lost to show us a wow setting or winning our confidence to custom design one. We happened into Leon Diamond and it was almost immediate; the team at Leon Diamond, Avi in particular, exceeded our expectations. Their inventory, service level, and patience to accommodate my particular taste was tremendously refreshing. Avi helped me to find the perfect setting. My new setting was beyond any design I could have imagined or thought we could afford. Avi gave us a pronominal price. I went from wearing a 2.01ct simply solitaire diamond ring, to over 3ct of BLING in a modern, yet elegance 3 stone Past Present Future setting. The icing on the cake for us was- minutes after leaving the store, my fiancé and I asked a stranger to take our picture (in Time Square) to treasure the moment. The stranger and her friend instantly and randomly complimented my engagement ring. That moment was validation of our choice, and a sense of awareness that our exuberance will never fade for this ring!!
My love just proposed to me and surprised me with a very enchanting ring designed by Mike Nekta! I can’t stop looking at the ring and I'm so exited we are getting married!!!! Brilliant! I the best anniversary gift yet . I woke up this morning and noticed diamonds sparked beside me. He gave me Oval diamond eternity ring. The design is by Mike Nekta all I see are bright diamonds (6 carat = 6 year anniversary) . My husband surely knows where to purchase the kind of gifts I love! I was planning on taking my girlfriend out for dinner on her birthday, it's would be her first birthday with me and I wanted it to be memorable . So I asked co-worker for some suggestions. She directed me to Leon Diamond where I was introduced to Mike Nekta. Fortunately Mike suggested the perfect item, that really pulled my attention. It was a diamond solitaire pendant, customized by Mike, the diamond dances. Now I know who visit when searching for unique designs.
This is the best place on the street if you are looking for any type of unique jewelry Especially engagement rings. I so happened to walk in this place, unintentionally. After walking into countless places in the diamond district and feeling the pressure of a sale within the first few minutes, I immediately was impressed when walking into Leon Diamonds. I was greeted by Avi. Instead of selling me an engagement rings right off the bat, he sat me down and actually educated me on the diamond market. Avi did not just throw a few rings at me and claim "this is the best price ever, it cant be beat" like most of the sales people in the district. He cared about me finding the perfect ring for my fiance now gorgeous wife, and let me tell you he did just that. I recommend everyone to check out Leon Diamond because the outcome was educating, fun and the product was flawless. Thank You!
If you are looking to purchase an engagement ring you must see Avi at Leon Diamond at the 44 West 47th Street location. Avi was extremely knowledgable, honest and patient. He showed me all my options. When I finally decided what stone I wanted, he found the absolute best stone and gave me a great price. The ring appraised at 40% more than I paid. The appraiser even said I got a great deal. The center stone was beautiful and the smaller stones around it were even individually cut. He was impressed with the quality. I can't tell you how many compliments I have received. Lets be honest an engagement ring is a big purchase for most people and can certainly make anyone nervous about the process, at least that's how I felt about it, but Avi was a dream to work with and I would recommend him to anyone who wants an unbelievable deal. I will be back for all my jewelry needs.
After weeks of looking and comparing prices, i somehow ended up at leon diamond, If i remember clearly they had a guy stand outside and he approached me with a question as he saw me gaze through their jaw dropping window display, I have never saw Diamonds that big, The guy outside told me i could see and play with the ring and he caught my attention right away, The moment i enetered everything felt different, it felt so nice and luxurious and i was greeted by all of their representatives(Such a warm feeling), Before i knew it i left a cash deposit and came back a week later to pick up my gorgeous vs1 2.00ct G Color Engagement Ring, When it was all done i felt like crying out of Joy and now i go to leondiamond Specifically ruben for all my jewelry needs. Thank you so MUCH!! HIGHLY RECOMMENED!!
Came here originally with one of my best friends who found her dream ring while just "searching". Mike was patient and not pushy explaining everything to us and even took a diamond outside so we can see it in natural light. A month and many visits later just to be sure my best friend's bf got her dream ring with Mike's help. We were able to get it appraised with matching specs at the Gem lab. Overall satisfied with the service & we got a great price. Mike's grandpa is such a sweet, honest, kind man as well! I definitely recommend especially if you like to ask questions. Very patient, professional, kind, & reasonably priced. Will definitely return for my own purchases. Thank you Mike =)
I went to several shops on 47th street when I was shopping for engagement rings.They are all the same from the outside and just try to get you in the door. Once inside, I was introduced to one of their consultants, Avi, and worked with him over several days. He took the time to explain everything and walk me through the process from start to finish. I was very impressed with the way he connects to his customers and you can tell his goal is aligned with yours to make sure you pick the best ring for your lady. I got a great ring and at a great price and I can't tell you how many compliments she's received. I will recommend this business and especially Avi to my firends.
Last year I found myself needing to get a present for my mother's 80th birthday. I had rough idea on what I wanted to get, but had no idea on where to go. Working two blocks away from the diamond district, a block I historically avoided, I decided to venture over. As another reviewer said, salesmanship on the block has a huckster quality to it. I passed Leon Diamond whereby a gentleman asked if I had needed help. He walked me into the store, which was nicely kept and introduced me to Richard. He took the time to listen to what I needed, in my price range, and sold me a beautiful gold and diamond encrusted pendant. My Mother adored the gift and wear's it frequently.
Honestly, I walked in the door and had no idea if I was going to buy a diamond or not. I did some basic research but there is a lot to it. Avi was excellent, he really helped me to nail down what I needed, did not try to up sell me and made me feel completely comfortable with my decision. The process took a while but ultimately I walked out with a beautiful diamond at what I now know was a excellent price. I would totally recommend doing business with him. I'm taking a bunch of friends back over the coming weeks :)
Wow! Came to 47th street with my husband hoping to upgrade my ring with a budget in mind. . . David & Rodi were so accomodating! They showed me a setting and a stone that I fell in love with and worked with us on the price since it was a little over our initial budget. Needless to say, we left VERY happy customers. We have already gone back to get earrings for our daughter and a watch for our son. Definitely the best on the block! Very attentive and very informative. Pleasure to work with each and every time!
