I first came into Anthony’s store at the beginning of my four month ordeal searching for the right engagement ring. He gave my friend and I a complete walk through about the intricacies of diamonds. I was a bit reluctant at first because I had only been into two jewelers – so I decided to shop around a bit more to get a better feel for the market.
I noticed while shopping around was there weren’t many jewelers who had great designs on their bespoke jewellery. A lot of the time it seemed they all copied one another, and nothing was original. The one thing I remembered was the amazing work Kalfin had.
After months of inquiring with different vendors I thought I found a great deal for a loose diamond. I called up Anthony to ask if he could make a ring if I supplied the stone, to which he replied was possible depending on the stone. I gave him the details and ten minutes later he called me back. Beating my quoted price with better specs and a more recent graded diamond from GIA.
He was helpful and patient in the 2 months where I had put a deposit against the stone, to choosing the design of the ring. Anthony did not pressure me in any way. If anything he was always checking if we were happy with our decision, and providing advice.
Anthony and his wife Yasemin gave us quality customer service, and even allowed me to come in on a Saturday once because of my busy work schedule. My fiancée and I love the ring – we will be back in the future for our wedding bands.
I’ll definitely be recommending Kalfin Jewellery to both my family and friends.
