Before I hop into the details of my visit, let me set the scene for you. I couldn’t have picked a better day to stop by Denis the Jeweler. It was a crisp, cool autumn day and the warm lights of the jewelry cases just beckoned you in. “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (the Marilyn Monroe classic) played on the TV in the background. Everything set the tone for a great experience!
A Little About the Business
Dennis is a second generation jeweler — his father was also a jeweler. He is certified in gemology, watch repair, and jewelry fabrication. He also has two certifications from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), which is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, gem stones, and pearls. The shop used to be located on 7th and Main, but has relocated to 10th and Main. They’ve also recently expanded!
Products & Services
Among the services offered, there is watch repair, jewelry restoration, and jewelry appraisal. On a personal note, one of my favorite features is that they do repairs in-store rather than shipping them somewhere else.
At Denis the Jeweler, they are very detailed about letting people know exactly what they’re getting. They also try to ensure the ring will fit the lifestyle and profession of the recipient.
The full line of engagement rings are all models and prototypes. They have this amazing CAD software to where you can completely customize the ring. I got to see a run though, and was so impressed. It actually made me wish I’d discovered Denis the Jeweler before I got engaged!
Three C’s — choose, change, and create. Choose the display ring that most suits your taste, make desired changes via the CAD software to create a ring that fits your personal style.
You can also bring in an heirloom piece and have it reset.
Tips for the Bride and Groom
There’s a lot of stuff out there on the internet, but you don’t get any personal service. You want to trust who you are working with. Plus there’s the issue of service, who is going to take care of it? The benefit of Denis the Jeweler is that they do repairs in-house. You get personalized service and your ring stays right here!
