My fiance went to Stroud and got the most wonderful ring for me. He ordered the diamond from an online vendor, and took it in to Zealand. Zealand totally went the extra mile playing cloak and dagger games with my honey so he could surprise me with my wonderful proposal. Of course, this is my honey's favorite part of the story. :)
I would only go to Stroud if you wanted your girlfriend or fiancee or wife or whoever to get all smushy and teary eyed at the beautiful adornments you might put on her.
As it is, we get married in 2 weeks and we'll be getting our wedding bands from them too. :)
Pros: beautiful ring!
Cons: Other girls glare because my ring is prettier than theirs
These guys are honest, perfectionists, fair priced and in my opinion, the ONLY game in town! I, and everyone I know, will go nowhere else. Ask for Zealand.......he knows his stuff and will special order, design, or find anything you desire. I would never dream of even having my wedding ring cleaned elsewhere. I've purchased my husband's christmas, bday, and love gifts ONLY at Stroud for over 10 years. Truly, they are the bedazzle bomb! They are a family owned and operated local business to boot!!!!! Can't Beat'em!
Pros: integrity and product perfection
Cons: diamonds are not free
