Ascot Diamonds is wonderful. I wanted a diamond wedding band that exactly matched my engagement ring, but the designer didn't have one available. Ascot Diamonds was willing to custom make a band for me that is the perfect width, diamond quality, and metal to look like a matched set with my engagement ring. The price was also very good compared to some other stores we met with. I would absolutely return to Ascot Diamonds!

Cannot say enough good things about Ascot! We worked with Paul to design my engagement ring and he was incredibly helpful. We knew we were getting great service when he told us the bigger sized diamond wasn't worth the high increase in price because it wouldn't even be noticeably bigger. My fiance went in with no knowledge of diamonds and came out a wealth of information.

We also really appreciated Paul's flexibility. While the store has more limited hours, he was willing to meet with us early or late to accommodate our work schedules. They even helped my fiance with a little deception to convince me that my ring wasn't ready yet so the proposal would be a surprise. In every way, above and beyond!

We will certainly be going back to get my wedding band! Highly recommend for anyone ring shopping.

My fiance and I worked with Tim to design my engagement ring and had a phenomenal experience. I only met with Tim and my fiance once to pick out the band and look at diamond options, and he was so helpful in explaining the differences between the properties and grading systems. We were interested in a lab grown diamond(which we could only find at Ascot in this area) and he showed us multiple lab grown diamonds to compare to traditional diamonds so we could eventually determine we wanted the lab grown to get a larger diamond for a lesser price. He was very patient and met with us for nearly 90 minutes on a Friday evening. He was in constant contact, so I've heard, with my then-boyfriend about the process and details and our budget. He never tried to upsell anything and worked within our budget guidelines producing for us an extremely superior product that has wowed everyone who has seen it. We will be returning to him to design our wedding bands for our ceremony in the summer, and I'd highly recommend Ascot Diamonds for any type of jewelry need.

I need a fairly quick turn around (less than two weeks) on the engagement ring and these guys pulled through for me. I set up an appointment, since they discourage walk-ins. They gave me a very helpful lesson on what the different measurements for diamonds mean and how they are practically applied to various stones. They assured me that none of the stones they sell are conflict stones. At the time they said that in my price range (2k) they would value brilliance over some of the other measurements so that the diamond would sparkle more, although it would have some inclusions. The end result was exactly what they promised and one day earlier than they had said it could be done. The ring is brilliant and I felt that the stone that I got was a great value. The design of the ring I got has a larger center stone surrounded by a row of much smaller diamonds on the outside edge. We have had to take the ring in twice now to have two of these small diamonds replaced after they fell out. In both of these cases, Ascot jumped to it to fix the ring in just a couple days without any additional repair fee.

Overall: I'd say these guys give a good value and are very friendly. I got the impression that most of their business is from other types of jewelry involving diamonds, so I didn't get pressured to get a bigger diamond. If I had it to do over, I'd still buy from them, but I might alter the design of the ring so that the outside diamonds would be slightly more secure. I have recommended Ascot to my friends and would again.
