    There is no reason to spend precious time going anywhere ~besides~ Krombholz Jewelers. After 2 failed attempts to achieve what my future husband and I wanted with previous jewelers, Lee Krombholz came to the rescue and proved above and beyond that one place CAN do it all and then some! Having a design hand drawn by my husband-to-be, Lee brought it to life.

    His expertise, dedication and knowledge was invigorating, not to mention his wholehearted interest in the project. We can honestly say it's the best jewelry experience we've ever had and plan to create projects just to work with he and his staff again. Everyone is friendly, their location is convenient and besides the ultimate end result that is gleaming off my finger, they even have chocolate at the door. =)

    If you haven't been there, you should remedy that. You will not be disappointed and we will be recommending the Krombholz experience to everyone we know. (And we're majorly picky and not easily impressed) Enjoy!!

    We (my now wife and I) started looking for engagement rings in what I would imagine is the typical fashion - by going to the big box stores and being hassled, or maybe more accurately, bullied into whatever jewelry the salesperson thought we should like. The selection of jewelry was outdated, plain, and almost always the same as the previous store we had visited. Admittedly, not all things were bad; there were some pieces that were unique and to our liking (even the occasional salesperson was okay). However, we had more or less decided at this point that the only way to get exactly what we wanted was to get a custom ring.

    This begins what I would generally refer to as phase II - a custom engagement ring at a big (but local) jeweler. They started by taking our ideas and the ring designs we liked (a big step up already) and sketched out a few designs for us to review. The timing of the sketches was quick and we chose one we liked and made a list of alterations for the next sketch. Unfortunately, it went downhill from there. After not hearing anything for two weeks, I called only to find out that the designer was on vacation. Everyone deserves time off, but the lack of any communication to a couple eagerly awaiting the design of their ring was quite bothersome. Not surprisingly, the lack of respect and basic manners made it easy to say no thanks and move on.

    This brings me to phase III (and thank goodness, the final phase) - a custom ring at a local family jeweler (Krombholz Jewelers). Like most people from

    Working with Lee on my wife's wedding band was truly a wonderful experience. For such a special, important piece, you want to make sure you have a jeweler you can trust and will do a fantastic job. We received exactly that in Krombholz Jewelers. Knowing the owner is also the chief designer on our ring gave us great comfort that the job would be well done. Given their track record and my experience working with them, I would recommend them for anyone in need of a great jeweler!

    As someone who knew very little about jewelry planning on marrying a girl who knew a LOT about jewelry, I was understandably nervous about my decision. I went to many ""pedestrian"" jewelry stores to do some research; an impersonal experience that normally started with a catalog search. However, after one window-shop with my girlfriend at Krombholz, I was able to confidently make my decision. The difference was Lee, Brad, and the helpful staff at Krombholz. By merely listening to my girlfriend describing (in detail) the components of her ideal ring, Krombholz was able to produce some stunning examples and design a custom ring. The staff at Krombholz was extremely knowledgeable, professional and flexible, providing outstanding customer service before and after the purchase. My fiance now has a one-of-a-kind ring; the kind she deserves. The next time I need to learn something about jewelry, I know exactly where to go.

    My fiance and I spent quite a bit of time checking out jewelers in the Cincinnati area from Tiffany, James Free, Krombholz and others. Each store had a different feel and we had good experiences at each. After our first trip into Krombholz is was no question where I was going to buy the engagement ring. We met with Lee on our first visit and worked with him from there on out. Lee was very flexible with our schedules as I am out of town every weekday and he made sure to fit us in on any day that we asked.\r
    \r
    To the actual service: Lee was able to answer our numerous questions on diamonds and fill us in with all the characteristics of the diamonds and metals. He was able to give us the pro's and con's and help us make an educated decision within our budget. Not only this, but Krombholz specializes in custom jewelry. This was 1 major perk that no other stores offered. At other stores, we basically had to pick a ring from the case and order her size. From Lee, we were able to customize the shape, style, width, etc to make the perfect ring. In the end, the price was within my budget and my fiance continues to get compliments on her ring. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.\r
    \r
    Because of the excellent service, we will definitely be purchasing the wedding bands from Krombholz and know they will be perfect.\r
    \r
    Thanks again for your help Lee and making this a fun, rather than stressful, experience!

    Of course they have lovely jewelry but that is not the best part. The best part is the staff and service. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. Ive done everything from purchase, to repairs, to custom made jewelry. Brad is very creative and great to work with. My custom made jewelry made from favorite gems acquired in my travels met all my multi-functional desires wear as a necklace, pin or come apart and reassemble into something different. What fun! And the price - reasonable. My favorite area features antique jewelry/consignment...There are often unusual exquisite offerings irresistible! Brads resourceful consultation helped me find just the right gift for my daughters 16th birthday and later, graduation from college exactly fit her taste and style. When you visit Krombholz, check out Lees latest design project/awards creative jewelry design artist in action! Wow.

    I can't say enough good things about Krombholz Jewelers. My fiance and I visited several local jewelers in Cincinnati while shopping for my engagement ring and the decision to buy from Krombholz was an easy one. From the moment we first walked into Krombholz the employees were more concerned with educating us about diamonds and the selection process than making a sale. I never felt pressured. They went out of their way to bring in multiple stones for me to see, and when I wasn't able to find one I wanted the first time, they kept bringing in more. Through this process I was truly able to pick out my favorite cut in a quality level that was acceptable to me. I also had Lee create a custom setting based on pictures I provided from the internet. The final product is absolutely beautiful. I have received so many compliments on the style. Since this purchase, my fiance also returned to buy me a pair of pearl earrings. He had nothing but great things to say about his experience with Ellie and Brad during this transaction. I will also be returning to have my wedding band custom made to match my engagement ring. Aside from our extremely positive experiences in terms of customer service and quality of their jewelry, I would also say that the prices here seem very reasonable to me. I was nervous that having a band custom made would be impossible on our budget, but it ended up being the same or very similar to pricing on pre-existing bands that I didn't like as much. I would definitely recommend Krombholz to anybody looking for fine jewelry in the Cincinnati area. Thank you Krombholz for everything!

    Pros: customer service; beautiful custom jewelry

    .

    This is simply the best jewelry store in the midwest. Customer service is the hallmark of this store, and it is matched by the knowledge and technical skill of the highly trained jewelers. Their jewelers are custom specialists, which should appeal to both newbies, as well as seasoned jewelry buyers. Their eagerness to explain options in layman terms makes it a comfortable setting to make purchases in. What is most refreshing is that they do not try to convince you to make the most expensive purchase or repair. They care about their customers, which will immediately become apparent to you when you walk in the door. The store truly has a familial atmosphere.

    As a professional male, the selection of the perfect engagement ring or gift is a daunting experience. Their years of experience in custom pieces allow them to understand what you desire even when you can't verbalize what you envision. This keeps the process from being overwhelming.

    Whether you need to purchase an engagement ring, a gift, or have a repair made, this store will exceed your expectations. I will continue to make purchases from this store. They are unequivocally the best jewelry store in the midwest!

    As a Financial Planner, I ask lots of questions to make sure the plan I develop meets the client's needs. Lee did the same when I was purchasing a ring for our 40th wedding anniversary. He proded, clarified and summarized and the end result was a masterpiece. He connected all the 6 children's initial along with mine and my wife in a white gold setting bordered by two rows of rubies signifying her birth month and 40th anniversary. His attention to detail and his dedication to creating a unique piece of beautiful jewelry with a hidden story was work worthy of a Ph.D in Jewelryology. He is the first person I recommend to friends, family and clients. \r
    ps. my wife has been stopped twice in galleries in Sedona, AZ asking about her ring. dbh

    I went to Krombholz jewelers to reset the diamond from my original engagement ring. When I started the process, I knew nothing about jewelry, and had no idea what I even liked. I sat down with Lee, who patiently showed me many styles and shapes of rings, and we tried to narrow down what my taste was. We met several times, going over many designs and options. I eventually came up with a look that I wanted (and was worried that ""my ring"" looked good in my head, but wouldn't look as good in real life). Lee brought my vision to life even better than I could have imagined! The quality and craftsmanship is incredible and the whole process went so smoothly. I would recommend Krombholz jewelers to anyone (I already have to all my friends)!

    I became a customer of Krombholz 8 years ago, and I have never bothered to go anywhere else since. Since It's a family-owned business, you get personal service, and they value you as a customer (unlike the big chain stores), and they remember who you are. They helped design my wife's engagement ring (OK, they designed, I approved), and she is absolutely thrilled with it. She constantly gets compliments on it, and I get a few ""attaboys"" as well. \r

    I received an invite to a little shindig they had last Friday, and it was a lot of fun. Food, drinks, a live band, and artwork from a featured artist. It was pretty low-key, just hanging out, chatting, noshing a little bit and checking out some jewelry. Absolutely a different experience from the big chains. I'm told they will be doing this once a month, with different artists and bands, so I will definitely try to make it back there again.

    My fiance purchased my engagement ring from Krombholz in September of 2008. It is more beautiful than I could have possibly fathomed and I have gotten constant compliments from family, friends and co-workers. Brad and everyone at Krobmholz was a joy to work with and their service superb. They always corresponded in a consistent and timely manner and produced a beautiful ring in the time frame that we requested. They worked with my fiance on creating a custom ring that we will enjoy a lifetime. After comparing this jeweler to many others that we visited, their experience/expertise in making custom orders far outweighed others we looked at. Their ability to customize orders allowed us to design the exact ring we were looking for but had not seen in other locations. I would highly recommend this business to others. \r

    I recently purchased an engagement ring from Krumholtz in December '07. After looking at other local Cincinnati Jewlers I settled on Krumholtz due to the friendly, patient, down to earth staff. At other jewelers I felt intimidated as if my business was a dime a dozen. Not Here. Lee Krumholtz took the time to not only help guide my decision, but also educated me on diamond and jewelry details. At no point did I feel pressured or misinformed. I would reccomend this store to anyone looking for a quality engagment ring.

His personal approach and attention to detail helped me find the engagement ring that my fiance and I truly love. He explained everything with great detail and each time I entered the store he remembered me by name. Many other establishments should look to his approach as a model as they help others in the jewelry buying process.

    More big box and national chain stores are coming to town but Krombholz will transport you back to a time when family owned businesses cared about their customers instead of just the sale itself. Attentive professional staff, quality products and ZERO ""low quality factor"" like the big box chains. At Krombholz, you can still find quality merchandise at an affordable price point... Three generations of our family are regular customers!!!

    In today's world of big box retailers, it is a pleasure to do business with a local business like Krombholz Jewelers. They can offer any jewelry item you can find anywhere else, at competitive prices, but their service orientation and knowledge really set them apart. I have a pretty limited budget for jewelry, but on the several occasions I've purchased from them, the team there has made me feel as welcome as if I was spending millions! Beautiful wrapping, complimentary beverages, a relaxed and comfortable setting - all make for a very pleasurable experience. Their custom design work is impressive as well, and definately makes Krombholz unique in our area. My husband had a piece created for me -- again, with a pretty limited budget - and they offered great ideas and produced a bracelet I'll treasure always. It is clear when you visit Krombholz that the staff loves what they do and has been doing it for a very long time. What a treat to find a store where the lines aren't long and the clerks aren't disinterested! Although they are tucked away on a back street in downtown Montgomery, they really aren't hard to find and definately worth the trip.

    Krombholz Jewelers is fantastic. As a native Cincinnatian now living in Indy, Brad helped me to find the perfect diamond and setting in an absolute minimum number of visits to the store. Having researched the purchase in many publications, I found that Brad was able to help me decide which C's mattered most to me (WOW does color D look great!). My wife reminds me frequently how many compliments she receives about the look and style of her ring. I can only say that I owe it all to Krombholz.

    .

    Being raised out in the country, milking cows and bailing hay ,etc. was a life experience that taught a young man responsibility and self reliance. It did not however teach you about the finer things in life. Life has been good to me . Elli, Brad, and Lee have helped me express my love to family, congratulate friends, and even knock the edges off an ole country boy! I may not have the best taste in the world, but they sure help me fool everyone else into believing I do. I tell them my goal and they show me ideas. I think we make a real good team. I appreciate them making my life easy.

    I would recommend custom jewelery to anyone, but I would insist that anyone wanting custom jewelery get it from Krombholz. I'd never been big on jewelery of any kind (i'm a guy), but during my first and latest custom jewelery project and especially after working with Krombholz, i confess that i was downright giddy. The feeling of having something unique, of getting exactly what you want, and of knowing that you had something to do with it are unbelievable.\r

    I recently worked with Lee Krombholz to make an engagement ring for my now fiance. Lee took the time to understand exactly what i was hoping for, to explain to me the process of getting the ring constructed, and to ensure i had no unrealistic expectations. Then he created a 3D computer model of the design and worked with me to refine it to my liking. \r
    \r
    Then, understanding my urgency (to get the ring in time for my planned proposal), the staff worked to get the ring finished by my deadline in spite of an ice storm and a power outage. They didn't promise to do this, mind you, but they delivered.\r
    \r
    This is the part that i'm really amazed by. They did all of this without collecting a penny from me until i was satisfied and had the finished product! And the price was more than reasonable and right on par with what he told me to expect.\r
    \r
    And satisfied doesn't begin to explain it. Neither my fiance nor i can stop looking at this ring.

    Pros: Friendly, helpful, tireless, bend-over-backwards costomer service

    After the birth of my son, I wanted a special piece to celebrate his arrival. I had no idea what I wanted. Krombholz walked me through the design process from start to finish and my piece is AMAZING. The design process was a very positive experience. I was able to show the designer (Lee) several items that I liked, but did not want a duplicate of, and he was able to generate a unique piece for me in a just a day or two. It completely fit my style and what I was looking for! He then worked with us to select stones, and not only did he bring in several rounds for us to view, but he took the time to educate us on what we should be looking for. Lee was able to stay within our budget, while still delivering the kind of piece we were looking for. At no time was I pressured to spend more, advised to go a different direction, or made to feel like I wasn't spending the amount of money needed to go through a process like this (which had happened to me at several other Cincinnati jewelers). Equally as important, the staff at Krombholz was very welcoming to our baby, who went with us to every visit. I can't stop looking in the mirror and showing off this gorgeous new piece that was created for me at Krombholz. I highly recommend them!

    Pros: Convenient Parking, Service, Pricing

    I am a designer with very demanding standards who recently had an engagement ring made by Lee at Krombholz Jewelers. \r
    \r
    It was a very unusual and technically challenging design and Lee was not only unfazed but enjoyed the challenge. He consulted me at every stage of the process as I requested and was ever congenial and welcoming. It was clear that his primary goal was to render my vision as accurately as possible. The stones, the castings, the finish were all exceedingly well executed and exactly as I'd imagined which was no small feat. \r
    \r
    The price for such careful workmanship was less than I'd anticipated and in fact was far less even than his original estimate. It is clear that they are not looking to gouge their customers. They were welll aware that I was expecting to pay more but they only charged me what they felt was a reasonable amount. \r
    \r
    The store is very comfortable and I never felt in any way rushed even though I demanded a lot of time.\r
    \r
    There was only one negative and I'm sorry to mar an otherwise perfect review but here it is: There is no dark chocolate in the complimentary candy bowl. That's it. That's the only bad thing I could think of to say. \r
    \r
    The process, the service, the craftsmanship and the price all merit a 10 out of 10. I really couldn't imagine a better experience.\r
