There were some bracelets, a diamond-faced watch, a necklace with rather large stones in it that I took to get appraised. The gemologist thought he knew about the jewelry I had brought in. However, I spoke with the jeweler who actually created the piece I had taken to him. The evaluation of the gemologist was completely off base and not accurate at all. We went through each piece of jewelry and they talked me into what I should get melted down. There reasoning was that since I wasn't really wearing it, that I may as well get some money out of it. The amount of money I received wasn't even what I had paid for the watch. They told me that my insurance company did not like to have appraisals on jewelry worth less than $1,000 (which speaking to my insurance company later was not true). Because of that they agreed to appraise two different groups of jewelry of stuff that was and was not worth appraising. They claimed they did this to save me money. After dividing the jewelry between the appraisal and melting group, he slid it off the table as fast as he could and ran around the corner with it and said 'I've got to get it to the melting guy quick before the price of gold changes.' Now, everyone knows the price of gold can change, but not that fast. They gave me a receipt for 'scrap gold' with no weight on it. I lost all the stones that were in each piece, and didn't get paid of them. They claimed to have paid me for them, but there is no record of it. I was trying to be nice with them, and they would talk me out of each concern I had. I had sent them certified letters to make sure they got them, but they kept ignoring me. I wrote the whole thing out to the BBB, and they took the claim. There was correspondence back and forth, but the jeweler lied each time and I would call them out for each of them. However, no one cared that they lied. We went to mediation, and they got them to agree to replace the stones but again no one put them in writing. The next thing I know there is a letter saying that he's refusing to replace the stones. I mentioned the mediation agreement, but I couldn't use that agreement because the meeting was in private. I requested arbitration, which was denied. They said my next step would be small claims court. I have since decided to drop it because my health has been in decline and I want to get better.

The owner then closed his store and moved. I had to fill out a police report to find him. The police found him and they spoke to him. He said he had returned all the merchandise back to the owners. I had troubles finding him after that. Then I saw a news story about his jewelry store and that is how I found him. I went in and I saw one of my jewelry pieces on display. I called the police and they confiscated the ring. I am currently in the process of litigation to get my rings back. I am in hopes of finding the individuals who purchased my 2 additional pieces.

My experience with
Austin Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
Jewelers was excellent. The spent several hours with me and we came up with a design that they priced for me. I was very happy with the design and with the price. It was $1000 less than the other two jewelers I worked with. Unfortunately, my wife fell in love with the design of the other jeweler and that is why we did not go with

. However, I plan to go to them in the future when I want to give my wife or daughters custom jewelery.

I brought my wedding ring (26 years old) and my 20th anniversary ring in to have the settings checked and get a regular cleaning.

Our jeweler (and creator of the rings!),

Hoover, looked them over carefully and showed me where I had a couple of loose stones in the wedding ring channel cut smaller stones and one of the side diamonds on the anniversary ring had a small amount of movement in the setting. He asked to take the rings to his repair specialist over the weekend and I would get them back early the next week in time for a family portrait sitting I had scheduled.

When I called on Monday,

said they were ready and that I was going to be amazed. I certainly was! His repair person had totally redone the setting prongs on the anniversary ring, correcting a small shadow that the previous setting had always cast, and making it more brilliant than ever. The wedding ring had been buffed to a high shine and he had re-textured the white gold detailing of the ring and tightened the channel cut so that the small stones were secure. They both looked brand new! I practically had to force

to take payment for all of the work that had been done, since I knew he had paid his repair person and he had gone above and beyond. The cost was minimal compared to the transformation of my two most important pieces of jewelry.

It is a new building. They opened the door for me and welcomed me in. They all act very professional. I really felt like I was at a very upscale establishment. They have excellent jewelry. They also are able to give appraisals, and are very reasonably priced.

When I left the earrings to be repaired I was leaving on a trip. I knew I could leave the earrings for an undetermined amount of time and that the repairs would be finished when I returned.

I just started going to them within the past year. I was looking for a jeweler because I had some work done several years ago at a really lousy jewelry. I am very paranoid taking my jewelry to someone. They are locally owned, they have been in business for a long time. I went in one day with some pieces that needed some work and talked to one of the jewelers there and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. I left a couple of rings there to be worked on with her and to see how I liked them. After I got those done I liked very much what they had done, and their prices. I was going back probably on a monthly basis to have jewelry fixed or sized.

I had an excellent experience at this family run and operated business. Though there were at least a half dozen people in this shop, I was waited on quickly and my four watches were taken care of in about 15 minutes. I had a delightful time looking at the beautiful selection of jewelry, watches, and estate jewelry and felt confidant enough to leave my

It went as promised. The owner and his mother are very warm, welcoming people who I trusted with my mom's old pearls. They seem to love what they do and they are very pleasant to deal with. The pearls were ready a few days later than promised, but I was in no rush. I would go back to them again.

for our jewelry needs for decades. He helped us design and created our wedding rings, which are utterly unique. I have a gorgeous diamond anniversary ring that he and my husband designed and he created, and since I like to wear it all the time, I needed to re-size several other rings to fit other fingers if I wanted to wear them simultaneously.

and his staff took the time to size a couple of different fingers, made recommendations and then did an outstanding job on the re-sizing.
