A friend of mine had refered me to Barry Jay after I had a not so great experience at another local jewelry store. I had my engagement ring repaired and it just didn't look right. I showed it to Barry and he took alot of time to show me my options and explain to me what could be done. What really inpressed me that never once did he bad mouth the other store, he simply explained why they fixed it the way they did. I wish the other store would of explained it me like that in the first place so I didn't have to have it fixed twice. Barry corrected the problem and replaced my center section and put my diamond back in. It looked better then when I got it 30 years ago. I also liked that when I left my diamond they give you a copy of the flaws in your stone so you know it is yours when you pick it up (so I got to look thru a microscope when I left the ring and when I picked it up) no other store has done that for me. I have been back three times for repairs and gifts and everytime I go there they are always busy. Barry and his staff are very friendly I would highly recommend them to anyone. I hope my son stops in soon to see Barry for a special ring for his girlfriend.
Barry Jay Jewelers is the best thing that ever happened to me regarding jewelry. I knew nothing about gold and diamonds until I met Barry. Now, I know that I can trust him and that everything in his store is, per Barry "something I would be proud to put on my own wife". His people are great and everyoen goes out of their way to make sure your jewelry shopping experience is a great one.

Best. Jeweler. Ever.
My husband bought my engagement ring at Barry's six years ago. Ever since then, we have been faithful customers. There is no reason to ever go anywhere else. The jewelry, the staff, the experience...everything is amazing. If you live anywhere near the Delaware County area, this is the jeweler to go to. You will not be disappointed!

My son recently purchased his engagement ring on-line. Right after giving it to his girlfriend some of the side diamonds came out. He contacted the place he purchased it on-line to send it back for service and they would not stand behind the ring since it was past 30 days. When he called me to tell me what had happened I told him when he comes back to Springfield I will take him over to my jeweler. We went over to see Barry and show him the ring. Barry took the time to examine the ring and to show my son under his scope what caused the problem. He explained what would be done to repair the problem and gave him an estimate to do the job. My son said the ring looked better after Barry repaired it then when he got it from the original jeweler on-line. Barry not only took the time to help my son with his situation he never once made him feel bad for not coming to him for the ring. My son and his fiance have gone back to Barry to make there wedding bands. My son said to me I will never go to anyone but Barry , I love his store and the people who work there always make you feel very welcomed. I told my son from the time he wanted to get enagaged to go see Barry sometimes your kids don't think you know what your talking about but now my son listens to my sugestions more closely. So if you are looking for a Honest , quality oriented Jewelry store look know further then Barry Jay Jewelers.
My wife and family have been going to Barry Jay for along time. My daughter recently sold some gold to him and was very pleased. My family swears by him and his honesty so I decided to see how good he was. I took about 20 items I wanted to sell and broke them down into pyles. I took them to two other local jewelers for prices. The first place I stopped at was in media and made me a offer of $1,150.00, the second place was in Springfield and he was close at $1,190.00 . Barry Jays was my last stop and he was $1,645.00. Now that is a big difference. I told him the story afterwards. I promised him I would write a review for him. Now like I said my family has been going to him for along time so besides buying my gold he has made alot of jewelry for us and we have always been very happy with him and his store's customer service. I would highly recommend stopping in and meeting him, for a young guy he has old world values.
I have gone to Barry Jay Jewelers for the past 5 years and have always been given the best service, attention and advice. I came to Barry with a large diamond ring from my great-grandmother and Barry suggested recutting the diamond to give it the brilliance it lacked. We did this; he kept the size of the diamond intact but made it a thousand times more beautiful. People always comment on my ring and that is because of Barry and the time he put into helping me pick out and make a setting that fit the diamond perfectly. I would suggest going there for every purchase especially an engagement ring. Barry is trustworthy and his prices always seem lower than other jewelers in the area. I would tell everyone to go there - they always go above and beyond for their customers. He also cleans my ring every time I stop in there; which is really nice!!!
I recently took a beautiful ring to Barry Jay's. One of the diamonds had fallen out & was was very upset because it had been my Mom's ring. Barry took a considerable amount of time with me explaining what needed to be done , how long it would take, and how much it would cost. He took my concerns very seriously and was very respectful of the importance this piece of jewelry had for me.
I got the ring back pretty quickly and it never looked so stunning. He professionally cleaned it , at no cost, and even gave me a free jar of cleaner to take home. He treated me and my ring, with great care & efficiency! I would highly recommend going to Barry Kay's for jewelry repairs and purchases. He has a lot of lovely pieces there at reasonable rates. A friendly & helpful staff will assist you too!
I have been a long time customer of Barry Jay Jewelers. This is a very nice neighbor-hood store. I like to support our local business. Barry Jay Jewelers is one of those stores that always supports and gives back to the local community. At my age I don't buy much anymore but he fixes what ever I need and cleans my jewelry for me. I recently sold some of my old jewelry to him that none of my children wanted. I was pleasently surprised when he told me the amount. I thought he was joking it did not look like alot but it was worth alot. I wasn't even aware the gold market was up so high until I was in his store to get a battery for my watch and I was watching all of these people selling there jewelry. If you are looking for a very honest and very talented jeweler then Barry Jay Jewelers is your store.
WOW What a really nice jewelry store. I was looking for a jeweler and on-line and found this store. I had some items that I needed repaired and had some stuff to possibly sell. When I went to the store I was greeted by two woman who helped me go over the repairs. I was very happy that the work was going to be done in the store and not sent away. They introduced me to Barry Jay and he went over all the repair work that my necklace and ring would need. All of the employees were very nice and I felt very relaxed here. When I came back to pick up my stuff WOW it looked brand new. I also sold him some old boyfriend jewelry that my fiance was happy to see go. When it comes time to purchase our wedding bands BARRY JAY JEWELERS is the only place I will go now. Great service , Great staff.
My now Fiance purchased my engagment ring from Barry Jay and I LOVE MY RING. Every place I go I get compliments on it. My family has been going to Barry Jay for along time so when it came time to get my ring he went with my mother over to talk to Barry. My fiance said he felt so relaxed and no pressure to buy not like some other stores he went to. He liked that Barry took the time to educate him on diamonds so he understood the different grades that diamonds are given made him feel more relaxed with his purchase. Did I say I LOVE MY RING. My fiance picked out the most beautiful ring and I am very happy that he went to Barry Jay.
I had some jewelry repairs done at another Jewelry store and with in a few weeks the same problems I had before with my ring ( this was my grandfathers ring that he gave to me on my 21st Birthday)I am having again. I took it back to the store that did the repairs and they said they wouldn't work on it anymore it was just too old. I went to Barry Jay's by recommendations from some of the guys I work with. Barry took the time to show me under the micrscope the reason why I was having problems with the diamonds in my ring and why they keep coming loose. He gave me two options on fixing the ring and went thru the entire process with me on how it would be repaired. The restoration (as per Barry Jays words) took appox 3 weeks. The ring had some engraving work on the side of the ring that was worn down also. When they called to say it was ready for pick up I really was reluctant to think it was going to look any better then the last store. LET ME JUST SAY THIS RING LOOKED BRAND NEW even the engraving work on the side was touched up. I am a big guy and this ring means alot to me I thought I was going to tear up when I saw it. I waited 6 months to write this and the ring still looks great. GREAT WORK and GREAT STAFF. I now have a Jeweler
"ILOVEBARRYJAY.COM" I am going to own this site! My (now) fiance' went to Barry Jay to get my engagement ring and I LOVE my ring!! We went to his store after the engagement to look at wedding bands and this is when I met Barry Jay for the first time. I have never been so impressed with anyone in this line of work in my life! He was so educated, creative, nice (is an understatement), honest, funny, patient, and made us feel as if we were the only customer's in the world. Barry Jay's sincerity is very apparent. I am not a huge jewelry kinda gal, but now I can finally say that I have a jeweler; how fun! Rebecca F
I live in Broomall and went down to Philly to look for an engagement ring for my girlfriend because my brother bought his from a store down there. I went on line to learn about diamonds so I would have some understanding of what I was about to purchase. I didn't like the pressure I felt from alot of the sales people down there. I read on line to only by GIA certified diamonds and alot of stores were trying to push other diamonds on me that were not GIA.. I went on line and googled jewelry stores in delaware county and a few came up with some good reviews. I picked two and both stores were very nice and informative. I ended up with Barry Jay Jewelers I felt very relaxed there , and he explained to me about the different "Labs" that grade diamonds and how some are better then others this can also effect the price of the diamond also. I ended up with a GIA diamond. I did go to alot of stores and his prices are very good and I would Highly recommend Mr Jay to anyone. My girlfriend loved the ring.
I went on-line to find a Jewelry store near me to buy my Girlfriend a piece of Jewelry. I knew I didn't want to go to the Mall so I went on-line to find reviews of some Local stores. I went to two stores and went to Barry Jays Last and I wished I had gone there first. The two women who helped me were very friendly and helped me find something in my price range. I didn't have a clue what i wanted to buy just something for our 1 year anniversary. I never had a jeweler before but I have one now.
I cannot say enough good things about Barry Jay. I have gone in there many times looking for a gift for my wife. I have never felt pressured to buy a thing no matter how big or small and I have always left with a present my wife loved. His entire staff are so friendly and helpful. You really get a sense of small town, everyone knows your name type feeling when you are there. A guy who doesn't mind a jewelry store?! Only at Barry's!
I highly recommend!
I have been a long time customer of Barry Jay Jewelers. We always go there for all of our repair work. They have been very generous with buying Ads for our Kids school and sports teams. When it came time for my 20 year anniversary present my husband asked what I wanted , I told him about a ring that I saw at the jewelry store. My husband works all the time so the staff at the store knows me not my husband. I told him that the ring is on a wish list and just ask and they will show it to you. Unfortunatly the ring in the store sold. The store was able to re-order a new one in for him to see. My husband said that everyone at Barry Jays went out of there way to teach him about diamonds and make him feel relaxed with his purchase. Barry Jay came over and helped out to explain about the ring and the quality of the diamonds being used. What my husband liked the most that Barry Jay brought the ring in for him and with no Obligation to it if he didn't like it, he even showed him the diamonds under the microscope once it came in. My husband is very old fashioned, He likes the old way of business when somebody's word meant something. At Barry Jays he felt very relaxed and informed about his purchase. He never felt pressured to buy .They have a great staff , always willing to help you. I would recommend them to anyone who asks.
Barry Jay is where my fiance got my engagement ring! It is THE MOST GORGEOUS ring I have ever seen in my life. We will NEVER go to another jeweler. We have since got our wedding bands, a watch for my fiance, and are currently looking at earrings. Everytime I go I enjoy my experience. Barry always makes sure to talk to us and make sure we know all of our options. He even let us hold our rings there until we payed them off. Hes the Best! We love Barry Jay and recommend everyone to go there!
I love Barry Jay Jewelers! Barry is so honest and patient. I've been in there with no clue what I wanted or was looking for and Barry took the time to give me all my options and was very honest with pricing, etc. Barry did an appraisal for us and made two phone calls to me after hours to make sure I had all the information. I can't say enough great things about Barry and Barry Jay Jewelers!
I LOVE BARRY JAY!!! He is the most honest person. You never feel pressured or uncomfortable when you are there! He is the nicest, most down to earth man-which is a nice feeling to get when you are handing someone your favorite piece of (broken) jewelery! He and his staff (who are all amazing by the way) take the time to listen to what you are saying. Everyone is so helpful they make you feel right at home as soon as you walk in the door. We have been using Barry for 6 years now and I would never go anywhere else-no matter where I live! I have recommended him a thousand times and everyone I know who has gone there says the same things- they all LOVE Barry! His custom work is a thing of beauty and his pride shows in every piece. He ensures that you love what you are purchasing just as much as he does! Please go in and see for yourself! I just can't say enough about this wonderful neighborhood store with its personal, get to know you feel.
Me and my family have been using Barry Jay Jewelers for years. He knows what it means to be a Community Store. He gives back to the schools and other Local events all time. We use him for all our jewelry and watch repairs all the time. Very High quality repairs and service. We just sold him some of our old broken and ugly jewelry and was very surprised on How much we received for it $$$ :). We will never go any place else and only recommend his store.
When I got married five years ago, my husband and I were shopping for our wedding bands and decided to stop and look at Barry Jay's. I ended up having my wedding band made by Barry. That was my first purchase at Barry Jay's but has not been my last...I have since gone to Barry Jay's for all of my jewelry purchases, repairs, etc. The staff is always welcoming and helpful...you are never rushed or pressured to buy - it's a great neighborhood store! Definitely stop in and take a look!
I used to live on the east coast, and around Philly at one point.
When I was there I was introduced to Barry Jay Jewelers. From moment one, you know this is the neighborhood store, that non corporate feeling that lets you know they are willing to take the time to inform you of every aspect of your purchase with sheer honesty. My career takes me to a new city about every three to four years. About six years ago I moved away from the Philly area, eventually landing in Denver, Colorado. When I decided to make a jewelery purchase, I looked around the Denver area, yet to no avail did I find that same feeling. I figured, why take chances. I called the store, and he had exactly what I was looking for. That same day I was sent an email from Barry himself, with a picture of the item, and within four days it arrived in Denver. This was monumental as the item was for a very special person for a very special reason. I know that I will NEVER find the quality of staff, or service from any "chain" company. They are willing to do whatever it takes to make their clientele feel like they have been going there for years. It is for these reasons, that no matter what city I may end up in next, I wont visit any jewelery stores, I will just have to make one phone call, and know that every expectation will be met.
I just got engaged last week and my fiance went to Barry Jay Jewelers for a ring. I have to say my boyfriend was totaly in fear of buying a ring. He had told me about some of the sales people at other stores and felt no one was listening to him. A few of his friends use Barry Jay and all have been very happy. He said he made him feel very relaxed and felt no pressure to buy. He said he actually had a very fun time hanging around the store . My ring needed a adjustment because my fiance did not know my finger size. Barry sized the ring for me the same day because we were going up to New York to see my family. This was the first time I was in his store and eveyone there was very nice. He is now our Jeweler. :)
I am new to this area and needed to find a Jeweler to repair my engagment ring. ( This ring was my grandmothers) Being very reluctant to leave the ring with just any store. I asked my neighbors who they use and some of our new friends at our Church and they all recommend Barry Jay Jewelers. I went in to show him my problem and I was greeted by two very friendly woman who were able to answer some of my questions until Barry came out. He explained everything to me that the ring needed to be fixed properly. He also showed me my ring under a microscope and taught me how to Identify my diamond. I left with a picture showing me my diamonds inclusions. At this point I didn't feel pressured on leaving my ring He took alot of time to explain everything to me so I felt very relaxed. I just picked up my ring this week from him and I thought I was going to cry in his store. He did a amazing job putting this ring back together my grandmother would of been proud. They showed me my diamond again when I was picking up my ring to show me my inclusions. I don't wear alot of jewelry but the pieces I have are very sentimental to me. I would highly recommend this store to anyone looking for a jeweler.
I have used this store for repair work and gifts for my girlfriend for a few years and always had great service. This store has been very generous with donation to my son's school and I think people should remember the local stores who take care of the community. His work has always shown his eye for detail and when it comes time to buy that ring. He will be my first and only choice.
My buddies have all purchased there engagement rings here so when I was looking I went there to see what he had. He gave me a great education on the four c. He basicaly put it into english so I could understand what everything ment. Some of the other stores I went to just would confuse me. I shoped around for about a month and ended up back at Barry Jays. He was very easy to deal with. He actualy made the ring I wanted from a picture my girlfriend had given to me. The ring came out awesome and the price was alittle less than I expected. I would say I am avery tuff person to deal with and Barry had no problem with me and never made we feel pressured. My friends were all right about this store he has quality jewelry at great prices. He is my jeweler for life
Barry Jay (the store's owner) runs the store personally and takes care of all the repairs. His work is amazing and his personal touch with his customers keeps them coming back again and again! Everything is done on the premises and the quality of his work comes highly recommended. Everyone in Springfield who knows comes to Barry Jay Jewelers and is treated like family. Just ask his mother (who works there), or his father (the watchmaker for the store), or the very friendly staff who always have a smile on their faces. I've bought many items there and will continue for years to come! A definite 5-star business!
I can attest to the quality of the merchanside at this store. The jeweler there knows jewelry amazingly well. The prices are great and the selection is wide. There is no doubt that you will be getting quality at fair prices when you shop here. I cannot think of another jewelry store which I can trust more or would feel more comforatble making a big purchase.
