I had my engagement ring & wedding band made at Lake Oswego Jewelers and it is the most stunning piece of jewelry I have ever seen. My fianc and I provided the basic design for the rings. Patti and the man who made my rings gave us guidance. We were involved with every step of the process. Patti spent an unbelievable amount of time with us. First by listening & addressing our concerns, then ordering several diamonds for us to look at, then bringing us back before each step of the jewelry making process for us to approve the next step. Patti and her staff are very knowledgeable & Patti takes great pride in her business. When we picked up our final rings, we were both totally blown away. The pieces are more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. If you compare my ring to another jewelry store, their jewelry looks like it came out of a Cracker Jack Box! The difference in quality, color, clarity, & weight is unbelievable. Before having my rings made, we spent many weekends visiting many jewelry stores & trying on tons of rings and nothing comes remotely close to the quality & beauty of my ring, and surprisingly the price of my ring was very comparable to other jewelry stores. After not finding anything we liked & a very bad experience with other jewelers, my fianc & I finally have the most perfect wedding rings. This is definitely a piece of jewelry that will be passed on for hundreds of years. Not a day goes by that I do not get a compliment on my ring from a stranger. I give Lake Oswego Jewelers the highest rating possible. My experience was flawless and my rings are to die for!

We??re a small town, so reputation matters. The Schmidt??s have earned a reputation for honesty and fairness. They are well respected and also work hard for our community. Their store is lovely and they are always welcoming.
I tell everyone to visit your store.
The nicest Jewelry Store I have ever been in.
Wow ?? there are so many wonderful stories ?? every birthday, anniversary, Christmas. On our 20th Anniversary, Judy worked with my husband secretly in presenting to me the MOST beautiful 3 Strand Pearls with Gold & Diamond Bow clasp that was breath-taking. Judy has the ability to innately know what pleases my taste when we visit her store. We spend literally hours trying on jewelry and laughing and having fun. I am treated as if I am the only patron she has whether I buy or not. This I have never found anywhere else. I will not buy from another Jeweler. I was in San Francisco and saw a pair of beautiful earrings. I would not buy from this particular store. I came home, drove to Taylor-Foster, drew them out on paper, and Judy found them for me exactly! There is a trust and confidence relationship that cannot be replaced by any other. We think Taylor-Foster is fantastic and their customer service cannot be beat by anyone.

The service at Gemstone Creation has always been excellent. Time for repairs has been within a week and sometime the same day. I find the owner Nancy [Sheldon] very knowledgeable with gemstones. I enjoy going into the shop to just look around. Also, her assistant, Karen is very helpful.
Williams is class act. They are 100% fine jewelry and fine design. Beautiful show room, extremely knowledgeable staff, [and] Gemologist on staff.
I adore walking past Williams and window shopping. Once you enter the store you are treated with 100% respect no matter if you??re in a suit or sweats, if you simply need a cleaning, a cross pen, or a wedding set. They stock inventory reflective of the economy. I know I can get a $25.00 repair or a diamond: each trip is a pleasure!
I have brought and trusted Williams with my personal designs and estate, heirloom Victorian pieces.
From the front of the house to jewelers to owners Williams is my first and last choice and will be for my children.

I want to thank Candy @ Nick T. Arnold Jewelers for finding my wedding ring and jacket. She did an excellent job. It is a five star job. It looks beautiful. I am so impressed!
P.S. ?? I will always do business @ Nick T. Arnold Jewelers
I have been a loyal customer of Ballard & Ballard for the past six years. I have entrusted the care and repair of two of my most treasured pieces of jewelry to Ballard & Ballard ?? a charm bracelet and emerald ring ?? both of which belonged to my maternal grandmother who passed away three years ago at the age of 90. She passed down these heirlooms to me before she passed on, and Ballard & Ballard has been my jeweler of choice to use whenever I wanted to add charms to the bracelet and size down the ring. Ballard & Ballard has always provided excellent service and the staff and owners are very professional and respectful. I am very very pleased to call them my jeweler.
Very knowledgeable and consistently wanting to help; a pleasure to deal with.

Initially I hesitated to visit Osborne??s Jewelers because I presumed they would be too expensive. Not the case.
I have purchased several pieces as gifts and have found their prices to be competitive and the quality excellent.
I have also had occasion to have pieces of jewelry cleaned, several rings sized, watch batteries installed, etc.
Customer service is unparallel which keeps me returning time and again for any jewelry needs.
I recommend Osborne??s Jewelers to family and friends.
