Best Jeweler, Best Experience
« on: June 03, 2010, 01:46:17 PM »
I have been a fan of Diamonds By Lauren for a few years now and I've helped both my mother-in-law and brother-in-law find their perfect rings.  Throughout the process of finding my family their special jewelry David has been open, honest and generous with his time.  Add to his wonderful demeanor the fact that he finds diamonds no one else carries, and offers prices no one else does, and he is officially the ONLY jeweler I will ever use.
Today I received the diamond pendant I have always wanted and it is all thanks to David's dedication to quality, and amazing resources.  When I was dissatisfied with the original setting of my stone David did not hesitate to send me a prepaid return shipping label and, even with Memorial Day weekend, a few days after I sent the pendant to him I received it back altered the way I wanted.
Not only is David a great jeweler, after having worked with him, I'm happy to call David a friend.

That is really pretty. The stone is beautiful (as usual) but I have to comment on the chain. That is equally nice--looks like 18kt Italian gold.

Thanks DJM!  You are absolutely correct, it is 18kt Italian, and I am totally in love with it.  I think every necklace I've ever worn has caught on the nape of my neck, but this one is smooth as silk and hasn't snagged on anything.  The lobster claw hook is also smooth and heavy. 
The stone is S/T with medium blue fluorescence and the 18kt gold really brings out the yellow, but she can also be tricky and look quite white under different lighting.  It's one of my favorite things about her.   :)

Beautiful!  The chain looks like a very nice weight, and now she lies perfectly.  We do need a few more pictures, Saori.

Would you be terribly offended if I called the new arrival "Bunny"?

Would you be terribly offended if I stalked you, found out where you live then sneak in to take that pendant when you aren't looking?! ;D

I'm kidding, kidding! Don't phone the police...  I am very taken with that stone, though.

In the mean time you should send Bunny to me to watch.  I'll keep her in some sort of witness protection program.  I think she'd look great next to my ring.  OMC helped me here to name her w/o him knowing.  I figured Sunny would be a good one for mine, since she really reminds me of a ray of sunshine in many lightings.  You know Sunny & Bunny... what a great team they'd be  ;D
