The Perfect Diamond Engagement Ring

I cannot describe how excited my fiance was when she saw her engagement ring. It was exactly what she was hoping for. When I started the process of buying an engagement ring, I had no previous knowledge of diamond rings. But the staff at Ed Benjamin and Sons Jewelers took the time to give me a crash course in diamonds. They wanted me to be educated and make the best decision. I was able to choose the perfect diamond with the perfect setting. I highly recommend utilizing all of Ed Benjamin and Sons Jewelers's resources to learn about diamond engagement rings and I cannot say enough about the oustanding value that I received by purchasing the ring at Ed Benjamin and Sons Jewelers.

My grandparents and parents got their engagement rings and all other fine jewelry from Ed Benjamin and Sons and when it was time for me to get engaged, there was no question about where I would purchase the ring. The atmosphere is a friendly, family owned jewelry store where you are treated like family as well. People know you by name when you walk in the door. It really gives you a sense of trust and loyalty. Ed Benjamin and Sons not only offers you the highest quality for the best price, it offers you a piece of history and tradition. I know that my children will also purchase from Benjamin Jewelers when their time comes.

I shopped many jewelry stores looking for the best engagement ring in my price range. I should have gone to Benjamin Jewelers at the very beginning and stopped looking! I definitely found the best diamond I could in my price range. I know that I have a quality diamond and it looks beautiful. To me, clarity, color and cut are very important. Every time I look at my diamond I feel proud. I am a VERY happy customer. Ed Benjamin and Sons Jewelers is the oldest jewelry store in San Diego, California. They are commitment to exceptional service and quality which made them the most trusted source for fine jewelry and loose diamonds for San Diegans and others across the country since 1948.

In September of 1999 my husband and I ordered and bought our platinum wedding rings from Ed Benjamin & Sons Jewelers in San Diego, CA. We picked up our rings and from there we headed straight to Las Vegas to get married. We tied the knot approximately two days later on September 4, 1999.

Here we are 10 years later, September 1, 2009. The big 10th anniversary is almost here. I decided I better get my ring checked and cleaned since 10 years has elapsed. I went to a jeweler in Santee for this service. The jeweler proceeded to tell me that white gold tends to yellow as it ages and for $40-$45 a coating can be applied that will make it look new again. That??s when the alarm went off in my head and I said ??Come again? Did you just say white gold? This is supposed to be platinum, not white gold.? The jeweler says ??No. It??s definitely white gold.? The jeweler asked what I had originally paid and was horrified by the amount. I paid just over $1,000 for my ring alone. I ran straight home got my husbands ring and went back. If mine wasn??t what we paid for then chances are his wasn??t either. I was right. His is white gold too. Now, I know what you??re thinking. ??What do the markings on the inside of the ring say?? My ring did not, does not and has never had any markings on the inside. Strange isn??t it? What did I know? I was 22 years-old at the time of purchase. My husbands ring, on the other hand, says 14k but has 3 little letters after which, according to Ed Benjamin & Sons at the time of purchase, told us that meant it was platinum. Like I said, what did we know? We were 22 year-old kids.

I know jewelers keep a log of the jewelry they sell but most do not go beyond 10 years. I called trying to secure the records of our purchase. I was told there is no record of it. According to the manager at Ed Benjamin & Sons, theirs do not go back more than 7 years. (Funny since the girl on the phone told me 8-10 years) I went to Ed Benjamin & Sons today knowing that I didn??t have much of a leg to stand on. It is 10 years later and I can not find the receipt. I reiterated the above story to the manager. The manager at Ed Benjamin & Sons confirmed that my ring is in fact white gold. He disputed that I even purchased platinum because there is an obvious weight difference between the two. (How would we have known that?) He all but called me a liar. No apology. Nothing. Just a bunch of ??too bad so sad?? type comments. I was very upset and tears were beginning to erupt as I left their store.

A little piece of me understands the managers concerns. I mean this is platinum we??re talking about but?..I just want what we paid for 10 years ago. We chose platinum because it??s the strongest/hardest type of gold. We chose it to represent the strength of our relationship and the everlasting love we feel for each other. What was originally a symbol of our marriage is now a reminder of how we were lied to and taken advantage of by a company who considers themselves to be ??San Diego's Most Trusted Source in Jewelry Since 1948? (As shown on their website)

So do the right thing, Ed Benjamin & Sons, and give us what we paid for!

This is a large store with a huge selection of beautiful diamond and gem stone jewelry. I like to look for unique pieces, but here they cost an arm and a leg. There is selection which appeals to all income levels. The staff were very friendly and helpful, without being pushy.
Would recommend, but know your diamonds so that you know what you are buying and whether or not it is worth the price.
