My engagement ring was purchased at Corrine, a very pricey Hearts on Fire Diamond. After being divorced, I went to them for a recommendation on the best way to sell it. They recommended Ebay. After getting very low offers on an extremely expensive ring with a very high quality Diamond, I visited a friend who owns a very large, well known jewelry store about how to get the most for the ring. He said the best way to do it is to go back to the place it was purchased because they know how much you spent and should be willing to work with you to give you a good price being that things did not work out and they made a large profit on you. He recommended that if they gave a low offer for the ring, to ask how they can offer so little after charging me so much for it and the ring has appreciated since. He said that he works with his customers who's engagements/marriages don't work out to give them a fair value being that he profited off of it the first time. He said that I should ask for close to half of what was paid and he thought that would be fair and good customer service to keep a customer for the future. He said that it would be hard for a jeweler that did not make the sale to do this, but the jeweler that you purchased from should always be willing to understand your situation and work with you, knowing what the ring was purchased for and how much they profited. When I visited Corinne to tell them that I wanted to get a price to sell back to them, being that it was purchased there and they would be able to give me the best value, the manager explained to me that they have a contract with Hearts on Fire and part of the contract states that they are not allowed to sell used Hearts on Fire Diamonds b/c they are an authorized dealer to sell new only, therefore they do not buy back Hearts on Fire Diamonds, I could only receive an in store credit. (Their outside sign flashes "we buy diamonds") He gave me a very genuine sounding speech on how he would love to give me a good price on it and another jeweler definately could give me a good price, but unfortunately, their contract does not allow them. He even went on to name other jewelers I should try. Well I knew that was a lie so that he could avoid telling me that he could only offer me pennies for the ring they profited so much on so I decided to look into this and found this statement on the Hearts on Fire website "Reselling is often easiest through the jeweler who sold you the diamond in the first place." The Hearts on Fire website recommends you go back the the jeweler it was purchased at, but Corinne tells you that Hearts on Fire does not allow them to buy back and sell used Hearts on Fire Diamonds. Also, how is he able to take it in on a trade but not give cash for it, either way he has to resell it. This just goes to show the customer service Corinne offers its customers. They are a very dishonest jeweler who does not care about their customers or returned business. They sound like a very shady jewelry store all around if you do your research and I would never recommend anyone shop there, I also found this report on http://ripoffreport.com - http://www.ripoffreport. My advice, buy from a jeweler that is honest, at the very least.

I purchased an engagement ring from Corinne Jewlers back in 2004. I went back in 2006 and purchased 2 wedding bands for our marriage. Since that time, diamond chips in the engagement ring setting fell out. The first time this happened wasin 2006 after I purchased the wedding bands. I took the setting back to Corinne's for repair. They charged me $50 to replace the chip, even after they told me the ring has been "taken good care of." I asked them to repair the product at their expense due to the fat that the setting was their product. They didn't. We paid the $50 and moved on. Well in March 2011, my wife had another issue where two of the chips fell out. She took it back to the store again. They gave her a work order stating that were in fact two chips missing. They kept the ring and said they would call her for an estimate. They called her three days later and stated that the ring was missing a total of FOUR chips, and would cost a total of $450 to repair the setting which I originally purchased for $800. After calling and proving to them that they wrote up the work order, they all of a sudden "found" the two other stones. Nonetheless, they still wanted to charge $350 dollars for two missing "chips" NOT stones. After I called and pleaded my case, the manager stated that he would speak to another manager and see what could be done. I asked (based on their "reputation") to repair the ring at their expense as the ring had the same issue in the past. They gave us some sales pitch, and stated that they would not repair the ring at their cost, but would lower the price of the repair to $215. I even offered to them to put in a lesser valued chip, but wouldn't. In 6 yrs, the ring has lost three chips simply by sitting on my wife's finger. They tried to convince me that the integrity of thier ring was still top quality. I disagreed. My wife went back and picked up the ring. Corinne's simply handed her the ring and two loose stones and stated that they were sorry that they could not help her. As far as im concerned, they have seen my last dollar. the $7,500 I have spent there over the years is not enough to keep good customer relations. They obviously need another $200. I will never deal with them again.

My mother got several of her rings repaired and cleaned here and had absolutely no problems at all. The staff is very friendly and they do the repairs fairly quickly. The store itself is small, but don't let that deter you from coming here.

Corinne Jewelers are a small but great place for jewelry. They sell quality pieces and also perform great alterations and repairs. They advertise quite often about their sales, and they always have fairly decent prices.
