I am writing this on behalf of Forest Jewelers in response to the negative reviews on here that have recently been brought to our attention. First and foremost, I would like to point out that at least some of these reviews seem to be from people who are simply trying to bad-mouth us for their own benefit. For example, the extremely negative review by 'Victoria M' can also be found WORD FOR WORD (copy and pasted with the same spelling errors and everything) on another review for the 'Diamond Find' business page. Obviously somebody is simply trying to discredit the other jewelery stores in the area to generate more business, which is pretty sad.

Now regarding the reviews that may or may not be credible:

Lindsey U. - We take great pride in our work and would never intentionally let a repair job leave here unless it was up to our standards. 'The man who works on jewelery' has been doing it for 30+ years so I can say confidently that when the ring left, it was not nearly as gouged or chipped as you make it seem, (if at all) because it wouldn't have gone out in that condition. Also, if it was such a terrible job (as you say) then wouldn't you have said something before you left the store so that we could remedy the situation? Furthermore, if there was ANY kind of issue with our work, we would absolutely make it right for no charge.

Jynya M. - Where to begin? I apologize if we had trouble ordering a ring in for you, but there is ABSOLUTELY no way that you were waiting for anywhere near 2 1/2 months as we would never let something linger for that long unless there were some unique circumstances. The rest that I could decipher from your thoughtful and well-written review was a nice plug for Jarad's or Jard's or however you choose to spell it.

Susan S. - Again I will just say that we take pride in our work and we are sorry to hear we didn't meet your expectations with the work that we performed. However, it was something that we would have been happy to reconcile for you if you had brought it to our attention.

To those who took the time to post positive reviews on here, we greatly appreciate it and are glad we were able to help you with your jewelery needs. I encourage everyone to stop in and see for themselves what we are all about, and I think you will find that the negative reviews on this site are a far cry from the normal feedback we get from our customers.

Thank you,
Forest Jewelers

After checking with a few of the big chain jewelry stores, i finally checked Forest Jewelers. My experience with them has been phenomenal. From the time I walked through the door, i was treated with respect, and was actually listened to. I explained what i was looking for, which is definitely a one of a kind ring, when i needed it completed by, and asked for the jewelers opinions. He was able to help me design EXACTLY what i was looking for, and even gave me some ideas for minor changes that made it even better. He got my ring to me in under the time i had expected, and it is BEAUTIFUL. My new fiance is extremely happy with her ring, as am I. I will definitely be going back here for future purchases, and would recommend Forest Jewelers to even the pickiest of Jewelry customers.

My experience with Forest Jewelers was was very disappointing..I 've boughten 2rings in the past and had no problem..But last year I went in order a ring and was being told it would be in with the mail,to being told it was not evening ordered correctly to being told it was in but it was the wrong size,mm and it just was very disappointing cause I had to get a my wedding pictures done with another ring til mine came in..most..well all the other place take 2wks we felt cause this place was close we'd stick with them..we just were not happy and still I called 1 to 2 times a wk to check for my ring and after 2 1/2 months I just went some where else and I got it sz, and it's more beautiful :) we drove to Jarad's Jewelers and they have everything you need..if they don't they can have it in 3 days..And just the Jewelers that are bigger chains are just worth going to..So now I will take my business to them. I work with a lot of woman that love my Jewlery and now they will ALL go to Jards..So thank you F/J for disappointing us.

I took my antique opal ring that had been my mothers to have an opal reset. My husband picked up my ring and brought it home. I was so angry and upset when I saw it. My 3 year old grandaughter could have done better. There was glue on the outside of two of the opals. It looks so bad I thought about taking it back but I'm afraid of what they would do to it next. Please be careful of what you take in there to be repaired. I'm sorry but I will never go back there.

My husband purchased my wedding ring, and engagement set from here. It was beautiful until they sized and sautered it. My ring now has gouges, and they even chipped the gold off my band.... needless to say beware go somewhere else. I don't care how long you have been in business... how long has the man who works on jewelry been doing it.

I had 3 horrible experiences with this jeweler. First time was when I brought my Platinum Engagement ring in to be sized. I picked it up 5 days later and the band had been gouged to the point where it was half the thickness and scratched my finger when I put it on. I brought it back obviously upset that they could let workmanship with such poor quality leave their store. They had to add new platinum to fix it. So I gave them a second chance and purchased my wedding band which was a ring gaurd that surrounded my engagement ring. A week before my wedding I brought the set in to have soldered together and got it back 5 days later and two days before my wedding. It was terrible!!!! I couldn't believe what I saw, and didn't have time to fix it! They said they could redo it within a day, which they did, but I still hate my ring which is a shame because it could be stunning if some care were put into it. I will never do business with them and I cringe every time I look down at my wedding ring. I hate it... POOR workmanship.

I was looking for a jeweler in the Forest Lake (MN) area to resize a ring. I selected Forest Jewelers specifically because I thought one the by Todd S was unfair and didn??t make sense. I found the owners of Forest Jewelers to be knowledgeable and helpful. The ring was resized within five days at a cost of $60 dollars (gold needed to be added) and I am very pleased with the ring and the cost. I would recommend Forest Jewelers.

As the owner of Forest Jewelers I would like to respond to Todd S.Obviously there was more to this than you are saying. Anyone who comes to us knows that our repair prices cannot be touched as we do exceptional work at very low prices. If repair work is not needed we do not do it.I would venture to say there must have been talk about redoing the whole ring meaning resetting your stones in a brand new mounting.We would never suggest to anyone to put that kind of money into a repair on a ring. I would ask that Todd S call us or come in and I'm sure we can figure out where you obviously misunderstood what was being quoted.I guarantee we would not be in business over 47 years if we did not take good care of customers.

My experience at this shop was NOT good! I took my grandmother's rings in to get them cleaned. Simple enough right. Well, within a few minutes of walking in the door the lady at the shop quoted me close to $1000 dollars to do prong repairs on these rings. I was shocked and quickly took the rings home. I told a friend about the repair quote to me from FL Jeweler's and she recommended me to Dan Gould Jeweler's in Blaine.

I went over to Dan Gould Jeweler's expecting a similar bill. Dan looked at the ring showed me the issues under a microscope and quoted me $60 dollars to do the repairs. Being shocked by the difference I asked him about prong repair. He stated it's very common for the prongs to wear down over time and all that needs to be done is replace the worn away metal.

Needless to say, I figured out real quick that Forest Lake Jeweler's was out to rip me off. They will never get my business and I will continue warning others. My experience at Dan Gould Jeweler's on the other hand was great and have purchased several items from them since those repairs.

I have had a couple of pieces of jewelry repaired at Forest Jewelers. One piece, they completely reset into a whole new ring. The jeweler gave me many different ideas and the piece turned out absolutely gorgeous. Just looking around the shop, they have a very good selection of jewelry. I definately recommend Forest Jewelers for repairs or just a jewelry purchase.
