i was looking for a nice anniversary ring for my husband...he's a bit of a lion personality even though he's a capricorn...they had a really terrific looking like lion head ring; the stones in the eyes and mouth were emeralds, though, and green isn't his color... i asked them if they could do the ring with diamonds for the eyes and a ruby in his mouth, to match his birthstone(red/garnet)....they were able to bring it up on a computer and show me exactly how it would look...one week later it was ready, and the look in my husband's eyes when he saw it was more than worth it!...
PROS: great service
CONS: none, it was great!

this is the way to travel!...we needed a ride to the airport to drop off our son, and then to the wachovia center for a concert...we arranged for a black limo to pick us up at home at 6pm; 5:45 he arrived, the limo was in perfect condition, all stocked up with goodies including champagne, sparkling water, and cookies...mmm!...the driver was a perfect gentleman, down to opening doors, and sweeping out the car between drop offs and pick ups....we will be using them again soon!
