Dealing with this establishment was the most humiliating retail experience I've encountered the past 30 years of purchasing or consigning jewelry. I consigned my ring to them and was never told of their policy of not giving you your portion of the sale unless the original paperwork could be shown. I originally consigned my ring almost a year ago. When I asked if they had a copy of my consignment receipt because I no longer had it, they told me they have no records of merchandise and I would be unable to receive any compensation. I asked if I could show ID to proving that I was in fact the same person who entered into the agreement and the owner stated that it's against their policy. There was nothing on the receipt stating that you couldn't be paid without it, and they said they told me this almost a year ago which they did not. The owner finally gave me what we agreed upon from the sale of the jewelry, however he embarrassed me in front of other customers and my children were so uncomfortable in the store, I had to ask them to wait out front. He spoke disrespectfully and asked me if I had ever consigned jewelry before. He also stated i was rude and that because of this, he had been considering giving me the money I was owed and that he decided he did not wish to do so. I was visibly shaken from this experience and would never do business there again. The owner also yanked the driver's license out of my hand when I tried to hand it to him. I'll never consign any goods whatsoever because of the treatment I received as a costumer of this business. I witnessed the owner treating paying consumers much better than he treated myself, a consignment customer.

I worked with
, the owner, and he was extremely gracious and listened to the type of design I wanted for my ring. After the initial visit, he called me a week later, to take a look at the preliminary design and get final approval.
I was extremely happy with the final product and loved what he did. The price was very fair and I definitely will return. I noticed while I was in his shop, customers who came in and expressed their satisfaction with his work.
I also like the fact that I am supporting a family company, with a great reputation.

consistently excelled all the times I've used them for a variety of things. Their customer service is top notch, and every staff member with whom I've dealt has been knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I bought a gemstone pendant and a diamond ring at different times, and was very pleased with the selection and pricing (both purchases were during sales events). Sands restrung a jade-bead necklace that had broken. The staff person who waited on me was extremely thorough in finding the right color of cord for the restringing. The repair was done in just a few days, and the necklace is as good as new. I also had Sands appraise ten rings for our home owner's insurance. The appraisal was done in a highly detailed and professional manner and included excellent color photographs. Sands gave me a complete copy of the appraisal and sent both an electronic file and a hard copy to our insurance agent. I have found Sands to be an excellent jewelery store and a true quality business.

It was a wonderful experience. I had been to other jewelry stores that were not really interested in repair the costume jewlery along with the fine jewelry. I was pleasantly suprised that was not the case at

. They made me feel extremely comfortable and accommodated a variety of repair needs to both fine and costume jewelry. They also helped me make informed decisions about which repairs may not be worthwhile. I never felt rushed or pressured. They took as much time as necessary to address my needs.
I live in Chicago and it was well worth the drive to

Hills. I am so very pleased that I can now where the jewerly (worth over $4,000) that had been lying around used for years because of repair needs. The repair cost was an excellent investment. I highly recommend their services.

The experience at
Park Ridge Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
was wonderful. It was an honest estimate and a timely fix. He did exactly what he said he was going to do and at the amount that he stated. This store fixed a problem that was created by one of the "big" jewelery companies and it looked better after he finished than it ever looked from them. The communication was there and I always new the status of my repair. I would definitely use this store again for repairs and new purchases. i would recommend them to anyone.

spent a lot of time sorting through the many items that I brought for sale. He took the time explain value and gave a fair price for the items he chose to buy. He is very knowledgeable and I would recommend him to others.

I bought a very pretty small gold and silver ring from
Park Ridge Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
and Country a little while ago and although I did find it a little pricey the service was great. I have gotten complimentary cleanings and polish on multiple pieces of jewelry, we have taken several items there for guidance on repair and replacement as well as estimates. The personal and approachable jeweler feel is hard to find in many places and the owners knowledge is not easily matched.

I have been going to
Park Ridge Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
for at least 10 years for all my jewelry repair needs. The staff there are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They create some incredibly beautiful, unique pieces in a variety of metals and stones/gems (and will do so to order, as well). They clearly take genuine pride in their work, and this has never to me come across as a hard sell, at all. Their repair work is top notch - besides the pearls, they've resized a platinum ring band surrounding a fragile, flawed emerald without causing any damage. They did an excellent job on the pearls, which have tremendous sentimental value. The turnaround is always very quick, usually just a few days, and the costs are entirely reasonable. I've had smaller more basic jobs done as well - attaching charms to a charm bracelet, polishing my wedding ring, replacing watch batteries. They are thorough, efficient and take great care. I have been 100% satisfied with every job they have done for me, and really cannot recommend them highly enough.

I needed jewelry appraised for a complicated estate in a city I am unfamiliar with.

's qualifications and continuing education met the criteria. I also researched and was drawn by her excellent reviews on line. The reviews were truthful and my experience with her has confirmed it. No the building is not easy to find but there was plenty of parking.

spent over 3 hours going over jewelry to determined what needed to be appraised. She then did a thorough job of researching and coming up with the FMV. Many times during this transaction period,

went above and beyond to meet my needs. Her staff was helpful and personable too. I, myself am not a 'jewelry' person but I found her inventory to be unique and one of a kind. I and even bought a pair of diamond earring cuffs. They are my favorite earrings and I wear them now with everything. I would make the trip to come down here just to buy another piece of jewelry.

I found a

on a Sunday. They were more than happy to do it. They had SO many colors and fonts to choose from. It was done in 2 days. They called when it was ready. It turned out perfectly! Will definitely use this service again. Not to mention, the store itself has an amazing selection of gifts, jewelry, etc. One of my favorite stores!!
