Do not go here. While I was in the store I heard them talking about putting up fake ratings online which makes sense since after reading other reviews and talking to other people in the area, they have lots of complaints. I have a complaint - the ring I supposedly ordered was not the right one. When they finally got hte right one (after my wedding, i got married with a chheap replacement band), the diamond fell out. They said it was cause it was pave. But my mother's engagement ring that I now wear is pave and was bought from another store in town over 30 years ago and has never lost a diamond ever and she wore it changing diapers and cleaning! Barksy told me not to wear mine all the time. Well I'm not supposed to take it off! Its my wedding ring!

Just bought a ring two months ago. Diamonds fell out. They said this NEVER happens to them. Apparently it does. Read tons of reviews online and found that it does frequently. Bad customer service - you get the run around from everyone

Barsky Diamonds has been setting the standard for other jewelry stores for the past 100 plus years. They have such a huge selection! They helped me pick the perfect ring and beat all other stores prices that i was looking at by fractions! Don't waste your time with other jewelry stores, just go straight to Barsky's. Everyone who i encountered while I was there was more then pleasant even though I didn't have a lot to spend. They were willing to work with me on any budget. Recommended times ten!

My husband got my engagement ring from here. I was happy with it for 8 years. Then I decided to get it upgraded with a custom setting. It took 4 months to get! It has been a nightmare getting any updates, feel like I get the run around

My husband bought both my engagement ring and wedding band at Barsky's. After about a 1 and half years, a small diamond in my wedding band fell out. I have no clue how and did not do anything that I was aware of to bang it up. I called

What an incredible experience. Right from the start I knew I was in the correct place to purchase my now-fiance's engagement ring. After shopping endlessly at mall and chain jewelry stores, I decided to head to Jewelers Row. At the mall

Barsky was a wonderful place to work with, I had a trade-in on my engagement ring and they worked with me to get me a ring that I love. I would recomend them to any bride! I love my ring and get tons of compliments on it!

My boyfriend and I have just started looking for an engagement ring. We walked in and told Denise our budget, and she immediately sat me down to look at settings while she went in the back to grab an Asscher cut diamond, which is what I thought I wanted. She also brought out a radiant cut since they are pretty similar. I honestly had no idea what I was looking for, but showed her a setting I thought was pretty. She showed me about 4 different settings which wore more in our price range, and I fell completely in love with one of them. The radiant cut looked gorgeous in it! I couldn't believe I'd found something I loved so quickly considering I'm probably the pickiest person on the east coast. I owe it all to Denise. She was more than helpful and told us to take our time deciding. I really hope that is the ring my boyfriend gets for me because - O-M-G it's beautiful! We had the greatest experience at Barsky! Cross your fingers for me that he proposes soon ;)

First off, this is not a coaxed or solicited review!
We never knew about Barsky Diamonds except for the sign on Sansom and a couple friends telling us we should check them out.

The experience was truly a joy. Nate Barsky treated us like family friends, and his expertise made what could have been a daunting task, completely manageable.
I think we've found a lifetime jewelry store. Marybeth gets more compliments on the unique yellow diamond with pink sapphires than she even imagined. There's a good reason why they've been at the same location as long as they have. Trust them!

For our 25th Wedding Anniversary my husband surprised me with a trip to Jewelers Row to shop for a special Diamond Ring. After going to the largest, most advertised stores and not feeling as excited as we were when we started out, we happened into Barsky Diamonds, we were greeted by a friendly salesman (Rick) we told him we wre looking for a special diamond for our anniversary, he very informative, friendly, and a complete pleasure to work with,
He informed usthat he did not work on commision ( which is why we did not feel pressured at all ) he showed us a beautiful 2.50 ct diamond and helped me choose the perfect setting, we were able to leave with it that same day,and while waiting we met several members of the Barsky family. I will recommend Barsky Diamonds to everyone I know, I will never go anywhere else to purchase jewelry.PS You'll never see a bigger selection of beautiful jewelry anywhere!!!

Where do I start? I have been married for a year and a half. Twice already my wedding band (pave style and purchased at Barsky's in October 2008) has lost diamonds. TWICE. Meanwhile, my engagement ring which is also pave style but bought from a reputable diamond store and in early 2007 has never once, I repeat, NEVER lost a diamond or "been banged up by me." On my second trip to Barsky's to have my ring fixed yet again, I was told by the woman in the back (fixing department - it was awfully busy back there) that I had lost the diamonds and that I had banged up my ring. She also explained that a woman is not to wear her rings all the time! WHAT???? Yes, you read correctly, ladies, according to Barsky's employees...you are not to wear your wedding rings all the time. I could only assume then that Barsky's diamonds are only to be worn very little because they are crap. When the woman AGAIN blamed me for the missing diamonds (two on each side) and the banged up setting, I showed her my engagement ring, told her it was purchased at another store, also told her that it had been on my finger EVERY...SINGLE...DAY since it was given to me and never once has it lost a diamond let alone two and let alone again twice nor has it been "banged up". I took it off my finger so that she could look at the engagement ring up close. I asked her why if I have been wearing that longer I hadn't banged that one up and lost a total of three diamonds from it? She simply replied, "I will fix it just this one last time, then you are on your own." Well, after it was fixed and I was walking out of the store, I looked down at the ring in the natural sunlight....only to reveal an even more noticable flaw and an absolute absurdity. They stuffed each missing diamond whole with something dark gray and squeezed the setting so hard to keep both of the gray things (diamonds????) in that now the entire ring looks like it's been run over by a MAC truck. It is sooo awful and such a shame that Barsky's suck. Never never never again.
p.s. - Don't forget, if you buy a ring from Barsky's: you will totally regret it, you will waste your money, AND according to the lady working there: you are also not supposed to wear it all the time! Most bizarre thing I have ever heard from a jewelry company.
p.s.s. - I brought the wedding band to a reputable jewelry store. The designer/owner was SHOCKED to see how Barsky's had "fixed" their mess. It was a joke!

After shopping for engagement rings for several days Barsky Diamonds had the best selection. Chris was able to help me figure out what I wanted. After a mistake they took all the time needed to fix the problem. They even give coupons for free parking in the appropriate lot. Once we bought the wedding band we had ordered the wrong size and they replaced the ring with the correct size for free.

My fiancee and I recently purchased an engagement ring at Barsky Diamonds. We had never been to Sansom Street as we are not local to Philadelphia. We approached our day trip eager to find a quality ring, but not willing to buy unless we felt 100% confident with the purchase/experience. After checking out numerous places, we entered Barsky Diamonds where we met Nathan Barksy. He was friendly, professional and offered a "no pressure" approach when showing us items of interest. This was such a breath of fresh air after having been in other well known stores where the "what will it take for you to buy this today" tactics were grueling. After spending nearly 2 hours with Nathan Barsky, we purchased a gorgeous princess cut diamond mounted in a unique18k setting. We left very happy with with our purchase. Unfortunately, a few days later, we noticed that the corner of the stone had a small chip near the prong. Since I had not worn the ring yet, we assumed this happened during mounting. We returned to see Nathan Barsky, obviously upset that our lovely stone was slightly damaged. Nathan handled the situation with professionalism, courtesy and in manner truly reflective of customer satisfaction. He immediately apologized, examined the stone and agreed that the chip must have happened during mounting as stones are under extreme pressure. He quickly offered to make things right by allowing us the choice of having the original stone recut or selecting another stone. Mr. Barsky offered to replace the original stone with one of the same carat weight, but of better quality in both color and clarity. He was a perfect gentleman and was clearly more concerned with our satisfaction than with his profit. I cannot speak highly enough of how Mr. Barsky chose to react to this situation. Many other jewelers would not have acted in the same manner and would not have as readily taken responsibility. At that moment I was so thankful that we had chosen to purchase from Barsky Diamonds. For those of you who fear the few negative reviews of this family owned business, please don't. I'm certain that things such as loose stones, chips, etc. happen from time to time in ALL jewelry stores, but I'm not so certain that all stores would handle those situations with the same level of integrity and class. We do not hesitate to recommend Barsky Jewelers.

My boyfriend and I had been searching high and low for the perfect engagement setting. We finally drove up to Philly from Baltimore one day and found it at Barsky's. It was PERFECT. We couldn't afford to purchase it that day so we wrote down the stock number and decided to come back at another time. In the meantime, my boyfriend called them a week later, had them put the setting aside and even put a deposit on it. When he went back this weekend to purchase it, he found out that they had sold it!!! On top of all this, the setting was a very good price, right in our budget. They told him that they could possibly make the setting again, but that since Platinum prices have gone up, they might not be able to honor the price we had been quoted. I am absolutely irate with them for doing this to us. I can't believe that a company who has been in business for 100+ years (so they tell everyone) would treat one of its customers this way. It's unbelievable. We are now back to square one and having to continue our search for another perfect setting. I'm so upset. So if you plan on putting a deposit on something and going back for it at a later time, you might want to think twice. Thanks a lot Barsky. You guys suck.

I've gone though two engagment rings from Barksy's. in just 4 months. Both left the store with loose diamonds, uneven prongs, and poor quality. I have had to make several trips to the store to return defected merchandise, only to have them deny anything was wrong with the ring (it was completely missing a prong after only wearing it for 1 week!) even after another jeweler in my hometown said it was cleary defected. In fact, the salesman at Barsky's said they would put it back out in the case to resell it! They completely scammed us, and I can only imagine how many other people they have scammed over the years. Men, if you want to buy your ladies engagement rings that really do last forever, then don't go to Barsky's. It won't last past three weeks.

I will NEVER step foot in Barsky's again!!! Their quality of jewerly is AWFUL! The first engagment ring my fiancee bought from there was defected. The gold was weak, the prongs were crooked, and some diamonds were loose in their setting. I returned it after wearing it for just one week only to have the salesman belittle me and make me feel like it was my fault the ring was defected. We had to pick out another ring, just to discover less than a week later that there was a stone loose in that ring as well. And the defected ring? The salesman told me it will be put back out in the case to resell. On top of all that, they did NOTHING extra for us for all the hassle we had in dealing with the first ring, including having to drive 3 hours to the store 3 different times. Worst customer service and worst quality of jewelry I have ever seen. Don't go through the same hassle we did, avoid Barsky's and warn others to do the same

I bought my wife's engagment ring at Barsky after searching Jeweler's Row for weeks. I had been looking in the window when Mr. Barsky happened to arrive to the store and stopped to say hello. After asking me a few questions, he invited me in to have a look at a few things. I figured he was going to try to make a sale, and wasn't too anxious to follow him, but I was surprised at how much time he gave me, and how committed he was to finding the exact ring I wanted. He was so helpful and professional, and he worked with me on price so much that I was thrilled with the ring. Money was never an issue. I told him my price range (which wasn't very high) and he worked with me to make sure I got exactly what I wanted for my money. And my wife loved it. She still loves it.

When we needed to get wedding bands, Barsky was our first stop. Now let me say, I didn't spend $20,000 on the engagement ring, so I didn't think he'd remember me. He did. He again treated me with gentle respect and went out of his way to make sure I got what we wanted. I had a destination wedding quickly approaching, and there wasn't enough time to have exactly what I wanted made. He didn't try to talk me into to something he had at the store. Instead, he gave me a loaner. He actually gave me a diamond-studded wedding band, that he altered with filagree to match the ring I ordered, on loan until the ring I wanted could be made. I have never experienced this kind of customer service. The craftsmanship of all of the rings are amazing, and everyone makes mention of their uniqueness and antique look.

I can't say enough about how well I was treated by, and how far my money went in working with Mr. Barsky and his friendly, professional staff. Getting engaged and married were serious decisions for me and the pressures they being were eased greatly by the treatment and respect I received.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Pros: Customer service, prices, respectful environment

Cons: Parking in the area hard to find

My husband bought my engagement ring there and the service was great.
They were very nice and did not discriminate against the fact that we were on a tight budget.
We also bought our wedding bands there. Everything was ready on time and looked perfect.
Whenever I am in the area I stop in and they clean my rings for free while I wait.
I would definitely reccommend Barsky Jewelers. We shopped around quite a bit, but we were not able to find a better deal.

I visited Barsky today and was treated in a condescending manner once I revealed I was looking to spend *only* $5,000. I thought this funny since the salesman was wearing an ill-fitting suit with black sneakers. Yes, sneakers. This salesman was also extremely pushy, resulting in an unprofessional manner. Also, it's terrific that the store has been around for 106 years, but I don't need to have it shoved down my throat. When a salesman walked me over to meet the "grandfather," the grandfather merely shook his head no. I've visited six jewelry stores so far in search of an engagement ring, and this was my worst experience.

I walked along jeweler's row and looked in windows shopping for an Engagement Ring. I was taken inside and introduced to one of their buyers. He couldn't have made the process any easier. I wanted the PERFECT ring because I only want to do this once, and he took the time to make sure I was happy. I must have looked at 20 different bands, not to mention the loose diamonds he showed me that were exactly what I wanted. Mr. Barsky, himself, even came over and talked to me while I was waiting on paperwork to finish up. They even set my one of a kind ring that day, complete with our initials engraved!! A stressless experience, and I couldn't be happier with the final product.

I walked along jeweler's row and looked in windows shopping for an Engagement Ring. I was taken inside and introduced to one of their buyers. He couldn't have made the process any easier.

Pros: Good selection, friendly people, lots of knowledge

Cons: Gets very busy on the weekends

i was looking for a really special anniversary ring for my wife to go around her engagement ring...you only get a 20th anniversary once, and i wanted it to be something really nice...the consultants at barsky's were able to listen to me as i described her diamond and setting, and show me some jewelry that they thought was in the style that i had described...the experts there are indeed that; my wife was absolutely thrilled with my selection...it told her how i would marry her all over again...

PROS: great pros at work there
CONS: none, except parking can be a challenge sometimes

We initially went into this jeweler because it was open late. The sales staff is very nice and very approachable.They take their time with you and are not pushy at all.

I was referred to Barsky Diamond Importers & Cutters by a close friend of mine. I wanted to get custom made diamond earrings and since they can cut diamonds customly, I chose them. The results came out great! I also found a beautiful fire opal here and I purchased that. The prices and selection here are great! I received great service as well. They are opened daily, with different hours and accept most major credit cards.

The sales people are not on commission at Barsky's and it makes for a wonderful buying experience. My sales rep, Alicia, was extremely kind and spent a lot of time offering suggestions and helping me design a custom ring that fit within my budget. There were no high pressure sales tactics and, when I decided that I wanted to go shop around a little, she politely wrote down the numbers and prices of the two rings I liked and sent me on my way. I found the prices at Barsky's to be extremely reasonable compared to the other stores on Jewelers row, especially since you they offer unique, custom peices and free engraving. I would go back in a minute.

spent almost 5 grand on a ring there. asked for shipping to be included, no dice so i paid the lousy 40 bucks. arrived in poor shape - had edging put on it. totally uneven, not uniform around the ring. it was only shipped registered or certified, not insured as i asked. if registered or certified, USPS only insures $1000. in addition the usps labels have the actual price paid to ship, mine was $16. so for a 5k ring, they tried to beat me for 24 bucks. will never return. ps- my great aunt bought her ring there 50 years ago...but probably didn't get that treatment
