"I was referred to Ben through a co-worker and what a great experience! Ben helped me convert a family ring into a modern, beautiful necklace. I could not be happier with the product! He helped me evaluate the stone, create an updated design and was able to get it made in a short time frame. So happy with the result!"

"Ben is simply wonderful! He was referred to my fiancé and I by a close friend. I am forever grateful! We had been so intimated and turned off by the pushy, unfriendly experience we were having while shopping for our engagement ring until we met Ben.

I cannot tell you how much I LOVE my ring. I get numerous compliments daily on how stunning it is. Ben was also very flexible with our schedules and he was very prompt in all follow up from day one. I cannot say enough positive about the great experience we had with Ben. We will be back!"
