Keith was AMAZING in helping me design the perfect engagement ring for my fiancé. I drove down from Connecticut several times to see him, initially because he had exactly the setting style I was looking for and his Yelp reviews were very positive. After working with him for several months I can say that all of the good reviews are completely accurate.
First, he knows his stuff. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about diamonds and settings, and spent time teaching me the nuances of diamond selection that you can’t really get online (though you should still research the 4 C’s to get started).
Keith was also very patient and I never felt that I was being pressured or “sold to”. I came back for multiple appointments and he was pleasant each time. He believes that if he treats his customers well, he’ll get a lot more long term business through referrals than the usual guy pushing a quick sale. For example, he insisted that I should NOT buy wedding bands with the engagement ring, even though some jewelry stores will try to add them on to make a few more bucks. And he even gave me recommendations for my proposal!
His selection is excellent. He works right in the diamond district, goes to trade shows and has direct access to a large selection of various diamonds that is always changing. As a result he found an incredibly brilliant center stone for me that defies even the strong quality specifications that it’s certified for.
Finally his prices are unbeatable. Even though I started with Keith, I did my due diligence shopping around in Fairfield County and I couldn’t come close to finding anything as good for the price. The final ring was the best diamond, in the best setting, for the best price. You can’t beat that.
If you’re in the market for an engagement ring, I absolutely recommend that you make an appointment to speak with him. Since he insisted that I not buy wedding bands at the time, my fiancé and I are going back to see him together!
