Incredible Experience – When I first began the search for an engagement ring for my now fianc
Best Custom Jeweler by far – Jay and Adriane Yontef makes getting your dream jewelery easy. They sit and talk to you. Ask many questions about who it's for and what expectations you have to make the "PERFECT GIFT".
They teach you how to aquire the best gemstone for your
dream and then bring in choices for you to pick based on your desires and price range. Since they own no inventory, except for Men's wedding bands, you get what you want not what they own. They then either show you or you bring in, pictures of what you like and then they put it all together in a wax or a model for you to actually see what they are designing for you. This so great. You talk and they interpret and wow, what you get in the finish is sheer magic and artistry. Their prices are very fair considering what they are making and it's so personal.
A teacher as well as a businessman – Jay did a great job teaching me about diamonds and the business before we even discussed what I was looking for. I very much appreciated the lesson, and it guided me to what I truly wanted to do. I ended up using an heirloom for an engagement ring, but I had a great experience with him and his wife, and I'll definitely keep them in mind in the future.
Custom engagement and wedding ring – We had a great experience working with Jay and Adriane, and I have the engagement ring and wedding ring of my dreams. We took Jay an idea of what we wanted, plus some family diamonds we wanted to use. The final result is perfect - exactly what I wanted. Looks vintage and modern at the same time. Unique and gorgeous, and didn't break the bank either.
Now, Jay's filing system is admittedly not the most modernized, and it took a little longer than anticipated to get the engagement ring. But the wedding band was ready sooner than anticipated, and the final product made any slight delay worth it anyway. (Oh, and Adriane kindly offered me a "loaner" band to wear while they borrowed my engagement ring for a few weeks in order to make the band contour to it perfectly. That was a great touch!) All in all, a great experience!
Gem of a Jeweler! – I have worked with Jay Yontef since 2003 on Rolex watch repairs and assorted jewlery repairs. He was referred to me by a trusted colleague at work, which is why I took the big leap and sent my then boyfriend to him with the family diamond to create an engagement ring. Those clients who expect a quick turn around time on a custom made ring need to go elsewhere. Jay and his wife spend time sketching designs, consulting with you and discuss options for metals, stone settings and durability. The result of the engagement ring was breathtaking, a contemporary setting with Sapphires. It was worth the wait and has endured to this day. I never take the ring off and not a stone has fallen out after five years. Today, I received a three carat Tanzanite ring Jay and Adrienne designed for me, which was incredible. Again, there is a wait for the ring to be designed, but, isn't it worth waiting for a quality masterpiece versus getting a piece of Schlock in a month? I have trusted Jay to apprise the estate diamonds for home owners insurance as well. He and his wife are like family. They know their clients personally and are always greeting you warmly. I highly recommend J. Yontef Diamonds. I am a discerning individual that would not settle for crappy workmanship and that is why I am a J. Yontef client for life. He delivers and stands by his product, which is always exceptional.
Extremely Happy Customer? – I told a friend that I was about to be in the market for an engagement ring, but had no idea what I was doing or really even where to start, and he immediately referred me to Jay.
Approximately 6 weeks later, I have a fiance that couldn't possibly be any happier with the ring she just received. Personally, I couldn't be any more satisfied with the service, education, and value that I received, directly from Jay, throughout the entire process.
I would unquestionably rate purchasing an engagement ring from Jay Yontef as the single most satisfying shopping experience that I have ever had. And considering what was at stake, my appreciation for the way I was treated is only compounded.
Now, I will never consider purchasing another piece of jewelry from anyone else besides Jay?
I found my custom jeweler – I found Jay through nashville reviews on the internet when I needed a jewler to remake my lost, sentimental wedding ring. From the start, his customer service was appreciated. He helped me handle my insurance claim before I even had a formal arrangement with him. That was what made me feel extreemely comfortable chosing him be the designer of my new ring and Im so glad I made the right decision!
He and his wife Adriane, made my husband (and two young daughters) feel like family friends. He has an "aire" about him that didn't turn me off; rather, made me feel good knowing he took extreme pride in his work. Both Jay and his wife educated me on gems and understanding how to recognize a quality diamond. When he talked about his work, he always had a smile on his face. He loves what he does and knows his work is special. That was evident in the quality of my ring. It has a fresh level of sentiment to it that only Jay could have added..
I have a new Jewler for Life – When I make big ticket or important purchases I tend to try and do a lot of research. I am glad I did because in my search for custom engagement rings I found Jay and Adriane. When I was thinking about popping the question to my fiancé I had an idea of what she wanted but I wanted it to be a surprise. I went to many of the mall/chain type places and to be honest I thought they had junk. Then I went to where " I have a friend in the Diamond etc" and while they had good quality it just wasn't exactly what I was looking for. Then I went to where the " Accent is on etc" and they had rings similar to what I was looking for and the diamonds were of quality and value but the settings cost were higher than I was expecting and while close to what I thought she wanted it wasn't exactly right.
Now how can I say some were junk and some were of quality and value am I some sort of gemologist? No but I did do some research on diamonds and then I went to Jay. Jay spent a great deal of time explaining to me the differences in the 4Cs now while I had some knowledge it is far better when and expert shows and teaches. Jay was patience and worked to answer my questions, and told me to look around and that is exactly what I did. After going out and looking I quickly ran back to Jay to help me make the perfect engagement ring.
I work out of town a bunch and my schedule is not the easiest to accommodate but Jay and Adriane were able to fit me in every time I needed to meet with them. Jay and I met over about a three month period where I brought him pictures of my fiancé and they asked question like did she work outside, did we have kids, etc. They did this so they could help with the design and make this a wearable durable ring that would look as beautiful as my future wife. Once we had and idea of how she would wear it and kind of what I was looking for we worked on design elements that she had mentioned that she wanted. I can say that the ring is beautiful and that everyone that sees it gushes about what an amazing ring it is. It was such a perfect ring that my fiancé wanted to meet both Jay and Adriane and is so looking forward to designing her wedding band. For my wedding band I am using my Father's band and Jay was able to add engraving and filigree work to mach her ring. All I can say is by the end of it I had a amazing ring, a jeweler and friend. The best part was I didn't have to pay any more that if I had just picked one out from a store, but instead of a cookie cutter ring I got a one of a kind masterpiece.
Incredible jeweler, craftsman and wonderful people – Jay and his wife Adriane treated me - a novice buying an engagement ring for my now fiancee - like I was their most important customer and made me part of the process the entire way. They were passionate about the design, explained the process to me, and made me a part of the process as we examined, weighed and decided the color of my mom's engagement diamond, which became the centerpiece of the new diamond. They told stories, shared experiences, and made it a joy each time I visited them. For such pros, I was pleasantly surprised by their patience and care for someone new to buying jewelry.
The end result was an absolutely WONDERFUL experience and a truly unique engagement ring that makes me fiancee absolutely sparkle. I didn't go to "box" store - I had the joy of working with a craftsman for this important item.
There's really no other alternative to J. Yontef - if you care enough to buy something special for someone important to you, then do it right and work with Jay.
Incredible Jeweler and Designer – Jay has an amazing knowledge of diamonds and knows exactly how to get what you are looking for. My experience was incredible. Not only did I get exactly what I wanted in a custom made ring, I also learned what I was doing in the process. I highly recommend working with Jay.
