Jennifer and I discussed what kind of ring she wanted - - a basic, traditiional princess cut solitaire. If not a solitaire - than no more than a couple of small diamonds on the side... nothing fancy or busy. I wanted to go off on my own and find the right ring so as to surprise her with it. I visited several jewelry and department stores in the Galleria and around the city. Nothing I saw struck me as being "the one" . . . unless it was far out of my price range - and that goes for both the ring and the diamond. Even though you couldn't see the major flaws with the naked eye - I knew they were there because I saw them through the loupe. I've known Stephen for a long time - but never knew he and his wife were in the jewelry business - until I voiced my frustration to him. I told him what I wanted and my budget. He showed me some diamonds that were in my price range - and I was pleased with the selection. His wife then drew several designs - - and after adjusting to my requests - she came up with exactly what I wanted. Not long afterwards - the diamond ring was presented to me - and I knew I found "the one". I presented it to my fiance during my birthday party - and she absolutely loves it. Stephen and Esperanza went out of their way to make us happy - and I'm already recommending them to my friends who're in the market. I was so pleased with the ring - I invited them to the birthday party where I surprised my love with a serenade on horseback. That serenade and proposal was captured by KHOU Channel 11 and the Houston Chronicle. You can view it on youtube - if you'd like to watch it. http://youtu.be/rVnz4YawkFg
I was so delighted with my elegant pearl necklace and earring set and received so many compliments that night on it at my party. The pearls have a gorgeous sheen to them. I just thought you'd enjoy seeing the tender happiness they brought me. thank you for helping with the perfect choice for me!
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

Steer clear of this store. I drove from Katy so that I could see some examples of Moissanite engagement rings and they had just a few rings in stock. So I showed the clerk Asama the ring that I found on line and even emailed her the particulars while I was in the store with her. She promised m…

I went to this location with jewelry that I did not purchase from them. They made a free adjustment to the bracelet. I was very pleased. My next jewelry purchase will be at this store. Thanks Victor Ortega
On June 5, 2013 my husband I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. July 5, 2013 I lost my original wedding set with a 10 year anniversary band. I waited a couple of weeks, just knowing it would show up, all the time looking at settings and rings available on websites and stores. I was just not finding what I wanted. Some of my co-workers had used Merida for upgrades and customs, so I began a journey and sent 3 photos of rings, stating what I did like, and did not like, about each one. In just one revision, Esperanza had the perfect design for me. The journey began and we loved the education and information we received on our initial meeting with Esperanza and Stephan. Well, the old set was found by feeling deep in my purse through one of the liners. After taking a look at it my dear husband said that it was time for the upgrade anyway. Next the diamond was selected and we got to meet the bench craftsmen that work their magic from wax, to casting to polishing under the microscope. I received photos of the progress and the excitement was building. The day came for us to take possession and we were headed out of town. What service we received when Stephen delivered my ring to our home and drove through a rainstorm to get it to me. I can’t express how grateful and blessed I feel to have my custom ring of my dreams on my finger. I still look with a bit of surprise followed by giddiness! Now at some point, I will have Merida design a pendant from my old set to compliment my beautiful new ring.
We have been going to this jeweler almost since they opened. He sells wonderful high end custom designed pieces. You will not find the mass merchandising stuff you find at places like Kay's. If you do not find what you want he will custom design your piece. He only uses the best stones and materials.If the piece does not come out the way you wanted it he will redo the piece. When dealing with a high quality dealer it is not customary to allow photos of his pieces (some one else gave a bad review because of that). He values his clientele and always takes all the time you necessary to get what you have envisioned or want. I know this from experience as I have had several custom pieces made for us. He has also takes the time to repair and/or refurbish my family watches and clocks so they can be handed down to future generations.As far as Rolex watches go his company really can make the repairs necessary to keep it in excellent working condition which is more than I can say for others.I would highly recommend Haddad's Jewelers for those who have discerning taste and demand excellent service
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!!
My husband and I have been using Haddad Jewelers for about 3 years. He's had links in watches replaced, my wedding ring sized and diamond replaced, many things. My husband and I went on a fishing trip one weekend. I never wear my jewelry while out fishing, but my husband was wearing his wedding band. As he was moving a generator in the bed of the truck, he slid it too hard and smashed his ring on his finger. It was so badly bent, and basically deformed that I had to pry it off his finger. We went in to Haddad's and they said no problem. They called us back a few days later, after realigning the diamonds and added more gold to the ring for a more smooth finish, the ring looked brand new. I was ultimately amazed. I've never seen such great workmanship. I will continue to use Haddad's Jewelers and have recommended them to many friends and clients and will continue to do so.
Fabulous Experience! I first met GreenOro several years ago when I needed a routine ring cleaning and looked up "Jewelers" in Best of Texas. They were a delight to get to know, and as a musician I appreciated how they approached their Green jewelry design with passion and artistry. I made a mental note that if I ever wanted to design a piece, I would return.... Fast-forward to last summer, when my fiance and I became engaged and wanted to craft a special Green Diamond ring in "our" synesthetic colors. My ring is gorgeous and has exactly the symbolism we were wanting. If you are looking for personalized service and excellent value from highly experienced gemologists, you will love working with the Yontefs. The process will take somewhat longer than simply selecting a ring from a GreenOro jewelry outlet or Greenoro website.
After shopping around at other jewelers, we were so happy to find Houston Diamond Outlet. The staff was friendly, warm, and gave us lots of great ideas for choosing our ring. At first we were a bit overwhelmed with the idea of creating our own ring; we didn't know how it would turn out. But we knew that the other jewelry stores didn't have exactly what we wanted. After just a short time with Maggie, we knew that we were in good hands, and every step of the process was more and more exciting. The whole experience of designing our ring was wonderful. Having a one-of-a-kind ring means a lot to us. We feel that our love is very special and unique, as I'm sure a lot of couples do, and only a very unique ring would feel right. We love looking at our ring together. It's perfect!"
I firmly believe that when you buy an exceptional piece of jewelry it is the same as purchasing an exceptional piece of art. And when you are trusting someone to create your personal signature statement piece you not only need the right person to help guide the process, you must have unconditional trust in that person. I found that right person in Esperanza Vaughan at Merida Fine Custom Jewelry. Esperanza’s one-on-one attention to creating my ring, my statement piece, was the best decision I have ever made. Her guidance and recommendations resulted in the perfect ring for me. The exceptional craftsmanship and brilliance has everyone asking -where did you get that ring – and I answer, not where but who – Esperanza Vaughan, Merida Fine Custom Jewelry.
I came to this store looking for Eco Friendly Jewelry and Conflict Free Diamod Rings For my engagement, I was having trouble finding exactly what I was looking for and other stores had just tried to talk me into something that they had in stock. GreenOro was the first store that offered to try to special order it for me. We got it ordered and it is gorgeous! All of the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. They really listened to what I was looking for and worked with me to find a ring that I would be truly happy with. I love my ring and I am so glad that I found this store before I gave up on what I really wanted. It was a wonderful experience all around and I would highly recommend going GreenOro.
I am so pleased with Robert Kirkwood.I can't stop bragging about his work. My Husband, Michael had lost his Wedding Ring and it could not be replaced. I had a small piece of jewelry that needed to be repaired so I stopped in his shop. While i was there he and I started talking and I found out he could redesign my husband' ring by carving a WAX fashioned after my ring.He made my Husband' Ring Heavier than the original and it is the perfect Replica of My Ring!! The best part is he completed the Ring on my Birthday and I was able to present it to my Husband. He was so excited and surprised that he had his ring back. I think it was the best Birthday Present I ever received.
