I came to Pave after browsing through some of their designs on the internet, which I must say were highly impressive. I found the salesperson (Sonja) to be quite courteous and helpful she assisted me in selecting a nice eternity ring for my wife's Christmas present. After being handed the gift-wrapped package and my receipt for the purchase, however, I found the experience to slide downhill. At that point, Sonja informed me that resizing the ring might incur some added cost because the price of gold has risen so much. I asked for an estimate and she indicated she would provide it during the sizing process.
I returned after Xmas with my wife to have the ring sized. Sonja indicated that she would call with the estimate. She did on Monday, informing me that resizing for a $1200 ring would COST AN ADDITIONAL $1200!!!! No markup in gold price could account for an added $1200 to add a few mm of length to a ring of that thickness. Sonja indicated that Pave would share the added cost with me, bringing it down to a mere $600. After consulting with my wife, we decided to pull the plug on that purchase and are now in the process of locating a more reputable establishment. I must say that Sonja's actions spoiled a nice Xmas surprise.

Pave designs beautiful, unique pieces based on your individual design ideas and choice of stones. They carry the coveted Hearts on Fire diamonds and they design stunning settings for them. They also have a unique collection of precious gems including Tahitian pearls in rare colors and settings. If you want rings, earrings, and necklaces that are uniquely yours, take a trip to Berkeley and spend some time with one of their professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful designers/artists.

The service is great. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. They even work within your budget to create a piece just for you!
