Barbara Oliver Jewelry
Prior to finding Barbara, my fiancee and I had stopped at a few places, but it quickly became clear to me that neither her nor I knew much about diamonds or what to look for. So I did what I usually do in such a situation... research and find who has the best reviews. Why listen to an ad to have a company tell me how great they are, when I can listen to the people who have actually dealt with them? Barbara had by far the most highly rated jewelry store I found. I read the reviews... glowing. I figured it was worth a shot. From the moment we met Barbara we knew this experience would be different. No flashy storefront, no high pressure sales pitch, and we felt at ease from the get go (the craft beer was a pleasant surprise!). My girlfriend and were able to find some beautiful, one of a kind pieces and quickly had a much better idea of what we were looking for and wanted. Barbara was patient and allowed me an opportunity to think things over, as well as an opportunity to give my girlfriend the impression I would keep looking. There was no need. A short time later I was able to pick up the one of kind piece and propose to my now fiancee. We both couldn't be happier with our experience!
Our experience at Barbara's was beyond compare. My fiancé and I had two family rings that we were taking the diamonds out of to make my engagement ring, and I only wanted to go to a local jeweler that I could trust. It was important to me that all work was done in-house, unlike some companies that send diamonds away for resetting. After some serious research (my fiancé and I are both librarians!), I found that Barbara Oliver & Co. seemed to be the most trusted place around. I explained to the staff what I wanted to do and they helped me look at settings to put the diamonds in. Barbara sat down with us and talked through the engagement ring process literally from start to finish: from different diamond cuts to insuring the finished ring. It's obvious she is a expert and has an artistic eye; she was able to look at the three partial rings in front of her and see the completed vision. She worked with my fiancé to keep the finished product a secret from me until the proposal and I was overjoyed with the results! I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to Barbara Oliver & Co.!
The experience at Barbara Oliver's is very relaxed and low pressure. She personally takes the time to review what you are looking for and more importantly explains to you what you SHOULD be looking for.Having someone who is a certified gemologist explain what to look for in a diamond gives you confidence in your purchasing decisions. The extra effort she provides in the actual setting and CAD photos prior to assembling the actual ring makes the experience enjoyable and something to look back on in a positive way.
I had a wonderful experience @ Barbara Oliver Jewelry! I went into the store for an engagement ring and was a little nervous about understanding what I was buying. It was a pleasure knowing that I was able to deal with Barbara herself. She educated me on understanding everything I was buying. She has a great work staff as well. It was a relaxed atmosphere and I will always go to Barbara in the future for all my Jewelry needs.
Barbara Oliver is the best! She is the most sincere, honest and very caring person you will ever meet. She honestly cares about each and every customer and gives each customer her undivided attention each and every time. My engagement ring and our wedding bands all came from her. Her staff is also so caring and she has three very adorable poodles:) I would recommend her 110% and already have! She is a dear friend!
