I went to DeVries on advice from a jewelry department employee of Meijer to see if they could shorten my Mom's wristwatch band. Mom is 93 and has very small wrists. I was expecting to pay 5 or 7 dollars. The store was busy because it was the eve of Christmas Eve. It took a while to get one of the busy workers to wait on me - about 40 seconds. The guy said it was a tough one and he would rather have had my Mom there to size it correctly. He took out the number of links that I had estimated. That took a while too - about 10 or 15 minutes. He put the expensive watch (around $20 from Meijer) in a small plastic bag with the extra links he removed. He said if he had to add links back on it could be done. When I asked how much I owed he said "Merry Christmas". I had dust in my eyes so it was hard to say Merry Christmas back to him. This place is terrible.

From Business: Since 1916, Kay Jewelers has grown from one store to more than 900 from coast to coast. As the #1 specialty jewelry brand in the United States, we know that offer…
I recently sifted through my collection of jewelry and watches that I have gotten over the years, and brought it to Baribeau's Jewelry Hospital to be fixed and polished. I found them to be very friendly and very helpful. Many of my jewelry pieces are heirlooms from relatives. My jewelry looks beautiful now!! They took great care of my jewelry and fixed some that other jewelers weren't able to fix. I even got to talk with the owner about the history of some of my watches. It was fascinating! I will definitely make a return visit and let all of my family and friends know about this wonderful shop!
Jeweler's Workshop excels in custom jewelry design and repair. I have a cushion-cut Canadian Diamond in a one-of-a-kind ring with custom-fit wedding bad. It's been 5 years with almost no signs of wear and it's absolutely stunning- I still get compliments almost every day on it. Not only has Ron &amp; Linda shown me what quality jewelry should be like, they have educated me on the proper care of it. Encouraging me to have my tips checked and my rings kept cleaned will ensure that it will last and last and prevent any potential problems with wear. Couldn't be happier or recommend them more!
If you are looking for the BEST JEWELRY STORE in west michigan, this is it. Ron, Linda and Suzanne are exceptional at designing custom pieces to fit the individual. They are honest with plenty of integrity and work very hard to help you translate your ideas into tasteful pieces. I return again and again to look at their original pieces. I have quit shopping anywhere else for my jewelry because nothing comes close to their quality of workmanship. I am frequently complemented on my jewelry pieces. My experiences at this store (more than 20 years) are always 5 out of 5.
In February my fiancee and I went to Dave to design my engagement ring, and we could not be more thrilled! He took a significant amount of time to teach us about diamonds and took a great deal of care in designing the perfect setting for the stone we selected. He was upfront and transparent about the cost of the diamonds and the settings, so we could figure out exactly what we wanted within our budget. Upon appraisal (and looking at other jewelers), we realized we received an incredible value by working with Dave. We will be Preusser customers for life!
We have been going to Jeweler's Workshop for a long time and have had work done there that we have always been happy with. I also have a few of Ron's one of a kind rings too. His work is always Superior. For our 40th anniversary he designed an awesome ring for me. He is now working on a pendant for my husband. The whole JW Family is very knowledgeable. and willing to help out when asked any questions. So yes I would and have told my friends about Jeweler's Workshop.
Had them custom make our wedding ring and they were SO helpful and did an amazing job. I basically brought them a pile of pictures of attributes from other rings I wanted and a stone and two weeks later I had the most incredible wax proof to look at. I would highly recommend them. There are reviews on here saying they have poor selection, they aren't a jewelry store in the mall that caters to bad taste, they are a group of artists who make amazing jewelry.
Great custom design We've had Ron create rings for special occasions in our family and been very pleased every time. Most recently we had a 25th anniversary re-design of my wife's wedding band. Each our our children have purity rings personalized by Jewelers Workshop. Each time we had appointments to discuss what we desired the jewelry to commemorate and then they worked with us on a custom piece. Very pleased!
I never thought I would start a sentence with the words, "My jeweler said," but since I started doing business at Jeweler's Workshop about 5 or 6 years ago, it's happened several times. Ron, Linda and Suzanne don't just design and create and sell jewelry, they advise and educate about jewelry. Their work is amazing and their integrity beyond reproach.
In the 7 years we have been doing business with Jeweler's Workshop we have had nothing but great service, creative designs and excellent prices. We highly recommend Jeweler's Workshop for all your jewelry needs and repairs. Seeing Suzanne is worth the trip alone!
