My wife and I looked at several jewelers around Cville when looking for engagement and wedding rings. We spoke with Andy and Brian on several occasions and ended up ordering several pieces through them. Although their prices weren't always the lowest and their selection wasn't always the best, they were willing to order anything they didn't have and willing to negotiate on price if possible. They were incredibly well versed in the jewelry world, amazingly nice, and willing to do whatever it took to satisfy our interest, including cleaning jewelry and re-ordering rings if the first ones didn't fit. If you're looking for the best customer service of any place in Charlottesville, stop by to talk with Andy Minton.

I took my engagement ring to Andrew Minton after another jewlery store knocked a diamond out of it when cleaning it and refused to fix it unless I paid them $150.00. I took it there because the person I spoke to who would repair it was extremely friendly. I dropped it off and 2 weeks later I called back to find that it was still not ready, the work had not even begun on it. Later, I went to pick it up when it was ready and the diamonds were brown. When I complained about this, the owner was stupid enough to look me in the face and tell me that they needed to be cleaned. HELLO! It has JUST BEEN CLEANED when I brought it there! Then he said the diamonds were tinted brown. WHAT?! They were not brown when my husband bought it for me or when I took it to them. I had to leave it AGAIN to be cleaned properly. When I picked it up, it looked magnificient, like new. I guess they have a remedy for making what they consider tinted diamonds clear. Never again will I go there.

If the ring you select needs to have any work done to it and you want it back to wear within a week, I wouldn't count on it. If work was done there, check your item carefully before leaving the store. If something is wrong, be prepared to wait longer to wear your bauble. The owner does seem willing to have you be a satisfied customer.

I totally disagree with the previous review. I felt like much of their inventory was reasonably priced compared to the other small shops on the downtown mall. They had a nice selection.

My husband and I searched just about every jewelry store in Charlottesville for the perfect sapphire ring. We had a strict budget in mind and most places we went to had a minimal selection of sapphires and would show us rings that were slightly higher than we wanted to pay (didn't respect our budget). We walked into Andrew Minton and said, "This is our budget and we aren't interested in financing. Cash on the barrell!" :) He showed us several rings... one of which I fell in love with. He took $200 off of the price so INCLUDING TAX it fell $20 under our budget.

The staff was friendly and accomodating despite us stating our small budget and being dressed in jeans and t-shirts. I found the staff at other local jewlers to be stuffy and disinterested.

This jewelry shop has an ok atmosphere, but I would not buy anything there at their prices. It is just your standard shop with display cases, a few comfy chairs, and carpet, with nothing special to really draw you in. Most of the jewelry they carry is fromt he big retailers - nothing too unique- and they charge more than most shops, even the mall chains. Better to go to some of the smaller retailers on the downtown mall.
