"Don, thank you so very much for making up the special order diamond wedding band and custom fitting it to the diamond engagement ring I purchased from you last year. Elizabeth and I are very pleased with how you suggested we design the matching diamond wedding ring to fit underneath the "halo design" center, so that the two "W" initials would not be "covered up" by any of the gold in the center of the wedding band. And you were so very accommodating in adjusting the price of the two wedding bands - the diamond wedding band you made up for Elizabeth and the 8 millimeter flat wedding band you ordered for me - to fit within my budget. We both are so very pleased, Don. The both of us will definitely be back for our future diamond and jewelry purchases. Thanks again, Don."

"Mr. Don, it was a pleasure visiting with you in Savannah and selecting the loose 7.0 millimeter Moissanite stone that you set into the extra heavy 14K all white gold solitaire mounting for me. I really do appreciate your explaining to me all the information about Moissanties and showing me the 4 different sizes of Moissanties from which I made a choice. I just love the way you set the stone in the solitaire mounting. The double prongs on each of the four sides not only hold the Moissanite stone more securely, but actually make the stone appear larger in size. I really do like that. I was also very pleased with the really low price
on both the loose stone and the solitaire mounting. Thank you so very much."

"Don, thank you so very much for helping Cathy and me decide on the loose oval shape (center) diamond and the diamond semi-mounting engagement ring. We both were very impressed with your providing us with a choice of 7 oval shape (center) diamonds, both in the clarity-enhanced and the non clarity-enhanced clarity grades. You explained all about each one of the 7 oval shaped loose diamonds' clarity, color, and cutting grades in terms that we easily understood. And you showed us 5 styles of diamond engagement ring semi-mountings, all of which complimented each of the 7 oval center diamonds. Everything you showed us was within my price range, which I really do appreciate. You helped us make the wisest buying decision on both the loose (center) diamond and the style of the engagement ring. And we both just love the way you set the oval (center) diamond in the diamond mounting. It was just "perfect
"! Cathy really loves it, and she gets so many compliments on how "beautiful
" it is. And you gave me such a great, low price
, Don. Lower
than we found anywhere else. Lower
than any independent jeweler, chain store, or any internet seller. I will definitely be back to see you for our wedding bands. Thanks, again."

"Don, I received in the mail today the special order diamond engagement ring that you made up for me. It is absolutely gorgeous
! I really do appreciate all of your time and effort, both in emails and on the phone, explaining to me all about the sizes, shapes, and quantities of the center diamond as well as those smaller diamonds in the various designs of engagement rings you illustrated on your website. I am so glad that you referred me to the section on your website entitled "Understanding Diamond Grading" ; reading that information helped me sort out a lot of conflicting information I had been told by various diamond salespeople - both in jewelry stores and on the internet. It was such a pleasure following up our emails with telephone conversations with you regarding the 5 princess cut (center) diamonds you examined and clarity, color, and cut graded for me. I was very impressed that you did not recommend the most expensive diamond, as all of these jewelers out here in Washington did ; instead, you recommended the one that gave me the biggest size
and the most brilliance
at the lowest price
! And you save me thousands of dollars
in the process. You came in even lower
than the world's largest internet seller, located out here in Seattle. I just love the ring. I will tell all my friends to contact you when they are ready to purchase anything in diamond jewelry, and I will be back in touch with you for the matching diamond wedding band in a few months. I am so glad I found you on the internet, Don. Thank you so much."

"Mr. Bennett, I presented the diamond engagement ring I bought from you to Martha last night. She was delighted
! It was exactly
what she wanted. She was even more thrilled than I was when I received it in the mail from you three days ago. Thank you so much for all of your help, knowledge, and expertise in guiding me in selecting the 1 loose round diamond from the 7 diamonds that you examined and graded in your gem laboratory. I am so glad that I took your recommendation and had you set the one carat round loose diamond into a 14 Kt. white gold, die-struck "cathedral" solitaire mounting. You explained the "4 C's" better to me than any of the jewelers out here in southern California. And none of the jewelers here graded the "cut" of the diamonds as you did. Martha and I love the mounting style! And your price was so much lower
than any of the jewelers and internet sellers of diamonds out here. I am so glad I found your website on the internet. Thank you so very much."

"Mr. Bennett, I am so glad that my best friend, Brandon, recommended you so very highly when I told him I was looking for a diamond engagement ring. You even exceeded my expectations when you recommended the 3 diamond engagement ring style with the prongs "swirling up the sides" holding the larger (center) diamond with the one smaller (side) diamond on each side of the center stone. I was elated when I received the ring in the mail from you three days ago, just in time for me to present it to Janet on Valentine's Day. She was so pleased with its design and with the perfect match
of the 2 smaller (side) diamonds to the larger (center) diamond! I am so glad that I left it up to you to select the 3 (matched) diamonds and the ring style. All I had to do was to tell you Janet's finger size and my price range. You did all the rest. Now I know why Brandon recommended you so highly. Thank you, Mr. Bennett, I will contact you again for our matching wedding bands."

"Don, Mike and I are just elated
over the gorgeous
diamond ring that you made up special order for me to celebrate out 25th wedding anniversary. You guided both of us so well in the selection of the 2 1/5 carat princess cut (center) diamond, and you suggested a diamond semi-mounting style that complimented the center diamond so beautifully. It is absolutely gorgeous
! I am so happy that we chose the larger 2 1/5 carat princess cut diamond
over the two smaller (center) diamonds that you showed us, as it was so much bigger
and more beautiful
! And you gave us such a great price, Don. You saved us thousands
! Thanks, Don. You made our 25th anniversary so very special!"

"Don, I am so very pleased with the 1/2 carat diamond stud earrings you sold me for my girlfriend for Christmas. You got in 4 matched pairs for me to choose from, and you explained to me all about their diamond quality, size, weight, and measurement. I was able to make a very wise buying decision as to which pair to choose. The two round diamonds were so perfectly matched, and the price you made me was so much less
than any of the other jewelry stores in Savannah or any of the other website sellers I checked out on the internet. I am so glad that Jeff recommended you to me. Thanks again, Don."

"Mr. Don, I am delighted with the 3 diamond engagement ring and the 2 matching wedding bands that you made up special order for me. The larger center diamond and the two smaller side diamonds in the engagement ring match perfectly in color, clarity, and cut, and your price saved me hundreds of dollars
! And thank you so very much for meeting me in Thomasville, GA on Sundary afternoon to deliver the 3 rings to me. You drove over 400 miles to deliver those rings to me so that I could have them for Christmas, and I really do appreciate that extra effort on your part. Now I know why my parents have been such loyal customers of yours for over five decades and why my son bought his engagement ring and wedding bands from you a couple of years ago! Thank you, Mr. Don. You have made this Christmas the best

"Mr. Bennett, thank you so very much for the very special diamond engagement ring and the matching diamond wedding band that you made up special order for me. The .97 CT. cushion cut (center) diamond in the "halo design" with the small diamonds down the sides of the engagement ring was exactly what my fiancée wanted. And the matching diamond wedding band that you made up special fits the diamond engagement ring perfectly
! All of the small diamonds in the wedding band matched the small diamonds in the engagement ring exactly
in size and quality! My fiancée loves it. I am so glad that I left it up to you to select the .97 CT. clarity-enhanced cushion cut (center) diamond, as well as to select the size and quality of all of the side diamonds. I am going to recommend you to my friend Dillon, as he is going to be in the market for an engagement ring soon. Again, thanks Mr. Bennett. You have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year."

"Don, the two necklaces that you made up for me are just beautiful
! I am so very pleased, not only with how gorgeous
those two special order one-of-a-kind designs turned out, but all of the effort you put in by measuring, weighing, and identifying each and every one of the 32 loose colored gemstones that I bought overseas. And because none of them were standard measurements in length and width, you had to go to the trouble of making by hand each individual mounting into which you set each stone. And I really do love the way you arranged the colored gemstones in each of the two necklaces - the arrangemet of shapes, sizes, and colors. Both designs - the one for me and the one for my mother - are gorgeous
! And your two detailed appraisals on each of the two necklaces were so specific, each one spelling out the shape, measurements, weight, color, and identification of each colored gemstone, in each of the 32 gemstone necklaces. And your price on each of these necklaces was so reasonable
! You saved me thousands of dollars
, Don. Thank you so very much."

"Mr. Bennett, I am so very pleased with the 16 diamond wedding band that you made up special order to match the Gabrielle diamond engagement ring style my fiancée gave me. You saved me so much money by using the small diamonds that were in the diamond brooch I inherited from my grandmother, matching those diamonds with the exact same size and quality from your inventory of loose diamonds, supplying a wedding band mounting that matched my engagement ring exactly
, and setting all 16 small diamonds into that wedding band mounting. And you even lowered my cost and saved me more money
by allowing me a credit for hte old gold scrap value of my grandmother's old brooch. And with the one larger diamond and the three smaller diamonds left over from my grandmother's old brooch, you made my fiancée a 14 Kt. white gold diamond tie tack. I am very pleased and satisfied, Mr. Bennett. Thank you so very much."

"Don, Kim and I are so very pleased with the diamond engagement ring and the matching diamond wedding band that you made up for us. You stayed within my budget, and you provided me with a wide choice of several 1 1/2 to 2 carat princess cut (center) diamonds, and you secured for me the exact style design of engagement ring semi-mounting with princess cut and tapered baguette side diamonds in the photo that Kim found on the internet. I travel the southeast coast of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, and I had been searching for the perfect engagement ring for Kim in every jewelry store in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Melbourne, Daytona Beach, Orlando, and Jacksonville in Florida, in Brunswick, St. Simons Island, and Savannah in Georgia, and in Hilton Head, Charleston, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and none of these jewelry stores offered me the selection, the choice of size and quality of loose diamonds, your education and expertise, and the assistance and customer service that you did in helping me choose the best diamond at the best price
! I had been looking for an engagement ring for 6 months when I found your website on the internet. And when I drove up from Jacksonville to meet with you in your office, I knew my search for the perfect engagement ring was over. I had found you! And you made up the perfect match in a diamond wedding band with the tapered baguette diamonds on each end, adjacent to two matched princess cut diamonds, separated by a straight baguette center diamond. A perfect match. You are my diamond jeweler, Don. I will be back in touch with you in a couple of months for a diamond necklace for Kim. Thanks, again."

"Don, I am really happy with the diamond engagement ring that you made up especially for me. You made its purchase such a pleasureable buying experience. You guided me in choosing the oval shape as the shape of the center diamond, and you found for me an "elongated" oval center diamond that not only had an excellent length-to-width ratio, but one that had no center "bow-tie", so that its "visual appearance" was larger
than its actual weight. Its actual weight of 1 1/4 carat looked like a 2 carat diamond
! This is something that no other jeweler in Savannah offered me. And I am so pleased with the 18 Kt. white gold semi-mounting "halo design" in which you set the 1 1/4 carat oval center diamond. My fiancée, Elizabeth, was really impressed with the beautiful
design of the ring and thrilled with the way you had the semi-mounting manufacturer design the "W" initial on each end of the ring style. And you saved me thousands of dollars
, Don. Rest assured that I will definitely be back in touch when Elizabeth and I get ready for a matching diamond wedding band for her and a wedding band for me."

"Don, I am really grateful for the gorgeous
diamond solitaire ring and the two matching gold wedding bands that you made up for me. I felt so very comfortable in buying these three rings sight unseen over the internet from you. Even though I live in New York City one block from the diamond district on 47th Street, I knew from our very first telephone conversation after viewing your website that you gave me a lower price on a very fine quality diamond solitaire engagement ring than any diamond dealer in New York City or any other seller of loose diamonds over the internet. Even though you were so highly impressed with the perceived value
of the very first diamond you examined for me, you insisted on examining and critically grading the clarity, color, and cut of five additional loose diamonds in the round brilliant cut shapre before recommending the very first diamond you examined. And what further impressed me was the fact that you recommended the most reasonably priced
of the 6 loose diamonds you examined! When I approved your selection of this diamond, sight unseen over the phone, you set it into a 14 Kt. two two 6 prong Tiffany style solitaire mounting, matched it up with a 14 Kt. yellow gold wedding band for my (soon-to-be) wife, obtained a wider gold 14 Kt. wedding band for me, and then overnighted the shipment of the 3 rings, along with very detailed certified appraisals, to my residential address in New York City. I am so very pleased, Don, with every aspect of our transaction: my initial conversation from New York City, your listening to my thoughts about the clarity, color, cut, and carat weight I thought I wanted, your expertise in finding me the 6 diamonds from which you chose the best value
, and your explanation to me as to why you recommended the one diamond as the best value of the 6 diamonds
! And you gave the best personal service
, Don, in shipping that diamond, set into a solitaire mounting along with the 2 weddings bands, the very same day that you received my check. You are the best, Don ; I will be back in touch with you for all of my future diamond jewelry purchases for my (soon-to-be) wife. Thank you so much."

"Mr. Bennett, I am so glad that I found your website on the internet. I was getting so very frustrated and discouraged in looking for a basic diamond engagement ring for my fiancée. I knew exactly what I wanted: a 14 Kt. two-tone 4 prong Tiffany solitaire diamond engagement ring with a 1 carat round diamond in the center. I looked in every jewelry store in Savannah, and every ring I looked at was $4,300.00, $5,400.00, $6,500.00 or more - way more than I could afford. The least expensive one I was shown was $1,500.00 over my budget, and it was very poor quality. When I came in to see you, you showed me several 1 carat solitaire diamond rings, all within my budget and all with very good quality diamonds. And you explained to me all about each diamonds' clarity, color, cut, and carat weight. I took your recommendation as to which one of the 1 carat solitaire diamond engagement rings to buy. I am so glad that I did. Now I know where to go for all of my future jewelry purchases. Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"Don, Kristen and I are so very pleased with how you made the purchase of her bridal set and my wedding band such a pleasureable experience. When I first came into your office to talk with you about a loose round brilliant cut diamond, I had done my homework and knew a little bit about the "4 C's" and about "Diamond Certificates", but you educated me to the fullest on the "4 C's" and explained in detail about the different grading on the various diamond grading reports. You explained to me the differences in diamond grades on an EGL-Israel, an EGL-USA, an AGS, and a GIA Diamond Grading Report. When I decided I wanted a 1 carat round diamond with a GIA Certificate, you obtained several loose diamonds, (all with GIA Certs.), and you and I examined each one of these loose diamonds under the 10x power binocular microscrope to verify their clarities and compared the color of each loose diamond to the colors in your master stones in your gem laboratory. When I decided on one of those loose diamonds, you even suggested that I have you mail the diamond I chose to the GIA Gem Laboratory in New Your City to have GIA "laser-inscribe" the GIA Certificate number on the girdle of the diamond. This you did. When you received the diamond back from GIA, I brought Kristen in with me to your office, and the two of us selected an 18 Kt. white gold solitaire engagement ring mounting with small diamonds on each of the 4 prongs. You ordered this semi-mounting for us, you set the diamond I selected, and you showed me under the 10x power binocular microscope how you set the diamond in between two of the four prongs so that the "laser-inscribed GIA Certificate number" could be visually seen under the 10x power magnification. I really liked that, Don. You had the ring ready for delivery - the diamond laser-inscribed, set into the semi-mounting, sized to fit Kristen's finger, and with a certified diamond appraisal, all within one week's time. That is really great personal service
! And when the two of us came back in to see you a few months later, you matched up a channel-set diamond wedding ring for Kristen and ordered a tungsten wedding band for me. You even came to our wedding, which pleased both of us very much. Thank you, Don, it was such a pleasure doing business with you."

"Mr. Bennett, thank you so very much for the great personal service
you gave me when I ordered from you the 14 Kt. white gold Kanji "love" pendant I found on your website last month. I am so glad that I found your website on the internet and that you had that particular style illustrated on your diamond pendant pages of your catalog. I had searched for that design in all of the major jewelry stores in San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento, Stockton, and Modesto, and I couldn't find it anywhere out here in California. And you were so cooperative in going ahead and ordering it 30 days before I needed its delivery to insure that I could get it, since it was the last one that the diamond jewelry manufacturer had in stock. And you allowed me to put the piece on layaway, paying half of its very reasonable price
last month and the balance this month, so that I would have it in time for Valentine's Day, as per my boyfriend's wishes. I was so excited when I opened the registered mail package
you mailed from Savannah, Georgia. It is gorgeous
! Even more beautiful
than it appeared on your catalog page! I just love it. I will be back in touch with you when I get ready for the matching diamond earrings. Thanks again, Mr. Bennett."

"Mr. Bennett, thank you so much for creating the most beautiful
diamond engagement ring and matching wedding band for me. As I told you on my very first contact with you by an email and a follow up phone call, I couldn't find exactly what my fiancée wanted out here in any of the jewelry stores in northern Colorado. I looked in Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs, all to no avail, so I went on the internet and, luckily, I came across your website. I found exactly what I was looking for in a clarity-enhanced loose (center) diamond and exactly what I was searching for in a "halo design" semi-mounting with a matching wedding band. And that is when I wrote you my first email which you answered so promptly. You followed up with a telephone call to me in which you referenced the loose (center) diamond and the semi-mounting by style number and gave me all the additional information I needed. You ordered the loose (center) diamond, the semi-mounted engagement ring and matching diamond wedding ring, examined and verified all of the diamonds' clarity, color, cut, and carat weight, and called me. You gave me a very competitive price
on the complete bridal set. I sent you a cashier's check for half of the amount as a deposit. You set the center diamond, sized both rings to my fiancée's finger size, and you telephoned me the next day to tell me that the two rings were ready for shipment. I overnighted you a 2nd cashier's check for the balance, and you overnighted the 2 rings to me that very same day. And you didn't even charge me for the overnight shipping. I am so pleased with how beautiful the 2 rings are, Mr. Bennett. My fiancée loves them. They are exactly what she wanted
! Thank you so much for everything - for saving me so much money on the clarity-enhanced (center) diamond, for giving me such a low price
on the "halo style" engagement ring, and such a great deal
on the diamond wedding band, and for your excellent service
! My fiancée will be in touch with you for my wedding band. Thank you so much."

"Mr. Bennett, I am so very pleased with the 1.03 CT. clarity enhanced cushion cut center diamond that you
recommended to be set into my fiancée's engagement ring. The clarity and color of the center diamond
are so outstanding, and its measurements are so much bigger than what they would have been in a round
diamond. And I am so happy at the great price
you gave me on the center diamond.
It was thousands of dollars less than I had quoted to me everywhere, both in stores and on the internet.
I will recommend you to all of my fiends."

gold semi-mounting you recommended, with the 28 invisibly set princess cut diamonds down the two
sides of the ring, showed off the .32 CT. marquise center diamond so great; it made the center diamond
look so much larger! You gave me a super low price
, and I really do appreciate it.
And you set my wife's 1/3 CT. center diamond and gave me an appraisal for the new ring at no charge.
Thank you so much."

"Mr. Bennett, it is such a pleasure doing business with you. You are so very professional, so very knowledgeable, yet so very personable.
Your information and insight about diamond quality - clarity, color, and cut - was very helpful. You explained to me about a diamond's
measurements, its length-to-width ratio, and how important this related to its visual size. No one else, not even online, explained
that to me. You gave me an amazing price for the diamond I purchased, and you set the diamond into a beautiful ring and gave me a great
deal on the matching wedding band. I just can't thank you enough about how wonderful my experience was."

the new ring is that I purchased from you last week. And I am so pleased as to
the total buying experience I had with you. When I first communicated with you via your internet website and on the phone, you readily
accepted the fact that I wanted a center diamond no less than a 2.00 CT. in size, no less than a "VVS2

than an "F" in color, and no less than a "1B" in cut. I am so glad that you recommended the 2.03 CT. radiant cut diamond that you found
for me at such a great low price

I told you the amount I wanted to spend on the 1 CT. total weight pair of stud earrings for my wife, you got on the horn, and had
several pairs to show me, all within my budgeted price range. I like the fact that you always stay within my price range and always
explain to me the quality of the diamonds - their clarity, their color, and their cut. I really do appreciate that. And, as always,
you gave me such a great price

I had been looking for an engagement ring for a couple of months when I came across your internet website. You duplicated the exact design
that I wanted in 14K white gold and found me a center diamond that was exteremely brilliant for the amount of money that I paid. I would like
to extend a hand of gratitude for helping me find the best diamond for the money I had. On top of the diamond you then surpassed my expectations
by setting the stone for free

recommend you to anyone. Thank you so much."

It was gorgeous

hits the three diamonds. Wow

a 1 5/8 CT. center and two matched 5/8 CT. side diamonds, all clarity enhanced, to come up with the 3 CT. total diamond weight that he wanted.
He told me that everyone else, both in jewelry stores out here in Washington and online, tried to sell him a 3 CT. anniversary ring with a 2 CT.

and you suggested the round side diamonds channel-set in the antique filligree design with the channel set, graduated straight
baguette diamonds on each side of the 1 CT. marquise center. You told him how unique this design would look and that it would
be a one-of-a-kind design that I would just love

and so much better
than any of the
similar styles at which my fiancée and I looked in jewelry stores in Albany, GA, Valdosta, GA, Dothan, AL, Panama City, FL, Tallahassee, FL, and
Jacksonville, FL. We knew we wanted a 3 diamond anniversary ring with a total diamond weight in the neighborhood of 2-to-2 1/2 CT., but
everywhere we looked, we were shown either rings thousands of dollars more than our budget or diamonds of not very good quality. I am so glad
that my grandmother told me about you. I went online to your website, sent you an email and told you what I was looking for. I was very
impressed and extremely pleased
with the ways in which you could create a distinctively unique diamond anniversary ring for me
by using a .95 CT. clarity enhanced center round diamond, 2 perfectly matched .55 CT. each clarity enhanced side round diamonds, and 6 round
diamonds weighing .03 CT. each down the sides of the band of the ring. You explained to me how this would give me the 2 1/4 CT. total diamond size
that I wanted, and that the 3 clarity enhanced diamonds woulds give me the big, beautiful diamonds at a price I could afford
You were so right! The ring is gorgeous
! My fiancée loves it. She gets so many compliments on it. We will definitely come back
to you for a contoured wedding band when we set our wedding date in a few months, as well as a wedding band for me. I will definitely recommend
you to all my friends. Thanks again, Mr. Don."

"I'd like to say a big thanks
for working with me to create the engagement ring of my dreams for my fiancée.
I knew that she wanted a rectangular shaped diamond with small diamonds around it in a "halo style" design with an antique vintage
style look on the sides, and I knew how much I could afford to spend on the total ring, but that was all that I knew. I knew nothing
about a diamond's shape, measurements, clarity, color, or cutting grade. All of the salespeople with whom I talked, both in jewelry
stores and online, gave me no satisfaction at all. All they wanted was to sell me what they had in stock at prices more than I could
afford to spend. You came up with perfect ring for me. You suggested a cushion cut clarity enhanced center diamond weighing .94 CT., an
"elongated" stone that measured 6.59 x 5.56 m/m, surrounded by 13 small round brilliant cut diamonds weighing .05 CT. each totaling .65 CT.
in a "halo" design, with a "split" vintage, antique style "band" going down the sides to the bottom. You drew me a "sketch" of the ring
and since I was a prospective client who lived out of state and who didn't have the time to come to Savannah, GA to examine the ring,
you sent me this "sketch" via an email attachment. I fell in love with the design the minute I saw the sketch. I am still in a state of
now that I received the finished ring in the mail from you last week and presented it to my fiancée. She loves it!
Everyone where she works compliments her and tells her how beautiful it is. And I still find it hard to believe that I was able to buy
such a gorgeous diamond engagement ring
and save thousands of dollars
by finding your website on the internet.
I will get back in touch with you for a matching diamond wedding band. Thanks, again."

"I am so impressed with your fast service, quality work, and reasonable prices. I am so glad that a friend of mine told me about you and gave
me your internet website address. I was getting very frustrated looking in all the jewelry stores in the Louisville, KY area, as I knew what
I wanted in a diamond wedding band that would match very well the marquise engagement solitaire ring I purchased for her this past Christmas.
You explained to me, in easy-to-understand terminology, all about length-to-width ratio in marquise shapes of diamonds, how important it was
to match marquise diamonds in clarity, color, and cut. No one in the Louisville, KY area did that - not in jewelry stores and not online. You
suggested that you set 2 matched marquise side diamonds - 1 on each side of my fiancée's marquise solitaire engagement ring, and furnish a
matching diamond wedding band with 5 marquise diamonds, so that the 5 matching marquise diamonds in the wedding band "line up" perfectly with
the 2 side diamonds in the engagement ring. I am elated! I received my fiancée's engagement ring back in the same package with the new 5
marquise diamond wedding band. Both are gorgeous
! They match perfectly
! Both she and I are so happy with them.
They are beautiful

talking with you on the phone, I went ahead and gave you the order. I am so glad I did. I am going to tell all my friends about you and let them
know there is a way to get the kind of jewelry we love but have a hard time getting here. Thanks again and know I will be a life long customer
who will gladly pass the word that you are out there!"

"Hello. I purchased a pair of diamond stud earrings from you for my girlfriend's birthday. I wanted to make sure that I bought the very best
quality diamonds, as well as the biggest
diamonds, that I could afford. So I started shopping around. I looked at diamond
stud earrings in all the department stores, all the chain jewelry stores in the malls, and in all the independent jewelry stores all over town.
I even looked online. Until I found you, I was not at all pleased with all of my efforts. The diamond earrings at the department stores were all
very poor quality, and those at the jewelry stores were way too small in size for their high
asking prices, even on sale
I am so glad I heard about you. Someone told me about your website; I went online to your website, and I was very impressed. We exchanged a few
emails, and I called you on the phone to discuss what I was looking for, and how much I wanted to spend. We set up an appointment, and I came by
to talk with you. Unlike anyone else, you took the time to explain all the facts about diamonds - their clarity, color, cut, and carat weight. You

"Mr. Bennett: I want to take this opportunity to thank you for making my purchase of an engagement ring such a pleasureable experience.
I didn't know anything about buying a diamond, nor about what style I should have it set into. And none of the salespeople in the jewelry stores
in which I looked in Brunswick, GA, St. Simons, GA, Kingsland, GA, Fernandina Beach, FL, and Jacksonville, FL helped me make an informed,
intelligent buying decision. You did, Mr. Bennett. I found out about you by typing in the words: "loose diamonds and engagement rings in
Brunswick, GA", and your website came up. I spent a lot of time perusing your website and was particularly impressed with your educational
background and your decades of knowledge, expertise, and experience selling diamonds to retail jewelers and consumers. When I first called
you on the phone, you referred me to the "Diamond Grading" section of your website (which I read extensively), and you sent me your free
informational booklet: "All You Need to Know About Diamonds." Then you referred me to the "Designer Jewelry" section of your website, which
presented to me 32 pages of designer engagement ring styles. From there, my buying experience was a cakewalk in the park. I told you the total
amount that I wanted to spend on the complete engagement ring, we set up an appointment for me to meet with you in Savannah, GA, I drove up to
Savannah, GA, met with you, made an informed, intelligent buying decision on a loose, high quality center diamond (from a selection of several diamonds)
and also chose a gorgeous
semi-mounting style of engagement ring from a selection of several styles you had for me to choose from.
And you set the center diamond I selected into the semi-mounting I chose, and sized the ring to fit her finger - at no charge - within the long
lunch hour I took while you were doing the work. And you saved me thousands of dollars
in the process. I will tell all my friends
about you. Thank you so much."

for our granddaughter, and the clarity enhanced oval diamond's measurements of 8.43 x 6.45

than the 1 CT. princess cut's measurements of 5.5 x 5.5 m/m, so we had to go with the oval shape diamond.

center diamond, asking you if you could make that same style in 18K yellow gold with a 1 CT. princess cut center diamond, and with a man's 18K

for the ladies' bridal set, plus telling us that you could make up a man's matching diamond wedding band with a total diamond weight of 1 CT. in
18K yellow gold. And you told us that you could have all 3 rings ready for delivery when we left the combat zone in Baghdad, Iraq and arrived in
Fort Stewart, in Hinesville, GA in 3 weeks! You had your manufacturing jeweler/diamond cutter in Los Angeles start work manufacturing our 3 diamond
rings even before our deposit check that we sent from Baghdad, Iraq reached you. That was such great customer service

the 3 rings from your manufacturing jeweler/diamond cutter on time, you set the 1 CT. princess cut center diamond and had the 3 rings ready to deliver
to us - on time - when we arrived in Savannah, GA. We were ecstatic

anniversary ring was that you made up special order
for me. When I first contacted you by email after looking at your
website online, I knew that what I wanted was going to have to be made up special order, as I had looked in all of the jewelry stores in the
Chicago, IL area, every jeweler told me that no jewelry manufacturing company made such a ring! When I sent you my original email, you
told me that: yes, you could make up a 7 diamond anniversary wedding band, but the 7 oval shape diamonds, each weighing 3/4 CT., had to match
within 1/10 of a millimeter in length, in width, and in depth, as well as match within 1 grade in clarity, color, and cut. You sorted through
15 oval shape loose diamonds - all 3/4 CT. each - to find me 7 diamonds that matched perfectly, and then had your manufacturing jeweler hand
craft and custom make a 14K two-tone mounting to take these 7 oval shape diamonds. And you even exceeded this exceptional personal service by
sending me the 7 (individual) diamond grading reports, one for each of the 7 oval shape diamonds, required by my insurance company to insure
this ring under our homeowner's insurance. You did all of this in record time, Don; I first contacted you on December 7th; you sent it by UPS
on December 23rd, the day before Christmas Eve

such a beautiful ring, and giving me such a low price

It fit perfectly. She just kept looking at it and telling me how beautiful

she wanted! I am so glad that you recommended the "cathedral" style of solitaire mounting for the loose princess cut I selected from those that
you showed m when I met with you in Savannah, GA. The "cathedral" mounting shows off the diamond so much better. And you really saved me a
bunch of money by recommending that I go with a loose princess cut diamond that was "elongated" (with measurements of 5.63 x 4.94 m/m) in one
that weighed .91 CT. in a clarity enhanced diamond, as these factors saved me thousands of dollars

only was it my favorite piece of diamond jewelry, but I was told by the jeweler from whom I bought it that it was a discontinued design and was
no longer available. You made my day when you told me that you could take the one diamond hoop earring I still had, carve a wax mold from it, cast
a pair of 14K yellow gold hoop earrings exactly
the same design that I had originally, supply and set twice
the diamond weight
as I had in the original pair! And you suggested that I have you solder on a "bale" to the 1 original earring, remove it's Omega back, and "convert"
it into a matching diamond pendant. This you did, and I love it! Now, thanks to your expert knowledge and expertise, I now have a beautiful

when she saw it! And she was so thrilled
that it was unlike any other 3 stone anniversary
ring that she had ever seen before. She was so happy that you selected the two matched round brilliant cut super fine AAA quality blue sapphires
and set them on each side of the 1.30 CT. round brilliant cut center diamond! The ring in all 14K white gold really showed off the fine white,
colorless "F" color of the center diamond with the intense color of the blue sapphires. She couldn't get over how gorgeous
ring was. And you saved me so much money, Don. You will remember that I told you I saw a similar ring in one of the local jewelry stores in Savannah, GA;
the sizes of its center diamond and the sizes of its 2 sapphires were considerably smaller
than yours and not nearly as good a
quality as yours, for thousands of dollars more
! You have a satisfied customer for life with me."

"Mr. Bennett: I just wanted to let you know how pleasant my buying experience was with you when I purchased Jessica's engagement ring. I had never
bought a diamond before and knew nothing about diamonds. I found your website online and read all about "Diamond Grading"; then I looked on your
website under "Designer Jewelry" to get an idea of what style of engagement ring I wanted. I found the prices on your website very competitive
and lower than anyone else
! So, I telephoned you, made an appointment, and visited with you on the weekend. You showed me several
loose diamonds and explained in detail to me all of the individual characteristics of each stone. And you showed me several different styles of
semi-mountings, each with small diamonds on the side. You counseled with me and advised me as to which loose diamond and which semi-mounting
gave me the "best perceived value
." Thanks to you, Mr. Bennett, I made a wise, well informed, educated buying decision."

"There are so many things to say about Don Bennett and his expertise, I could probably fill a whole page. Let me begin by thanking Don for all of his time and patience.
Don clearly has a knowledge about diamonds that he was more than happy to share with us. Don helped us find the most beautiful diamond in the world! The best part
of all of this is the value! The price we paid for a 1.55 carat gorgeous
halo ring doesn't compare to even one stone we checked out. I wish I could
post a picture of my ring. Words can't describe how beautiful it is. I would love to provide a reference if needed for anyone who is nervous shopping online.
We did wire our money to Don before we received the ring, but my fiancée and I felt very comfortable doing so after we both talked to him on the phone. I am
telling all of my friends and family about Don. Anyone shopping for a diamond should absolutely give Don Bennett in Savannah, Georgia, an email, a phone call,
or make an appointment to visit with him in person. His 53 years of buying and selling quality diamonds and his knowledge and expertise will save you

"I have never in my life come across a person with such compassion, honesty, and integrity when it comes to diamond buying.......until I met Don Bennett!
Mr. Bennett had been recommended to me by my older brother who had bought his bridal set from him 10 years ago, and also by my parents, who bought a 3 diamond
anniversary ring 5 years ago, so my family had urged me to talk to him before I committed to buying a diamond engagement ring from anyone else. From the first
minute we spoke on the phone to the completion of my "dream ring", Mr. Bennett was dedicated to exceeding
my highest expectations!!! His prices
cannot be touched by anyone in the industry, but that is just the beginning!!! His attention to detail and commitment to assuring his customer the highest
quality possible cannot be ignored. Do not waste your time anywhere else
!!! I had looked in jewelry store after jewelry store and spent 3 months
searching every diamond dealer in the world on the internet before I talked to my brother and parents and learned about Don Bennett and Bennett's Fine
in Savannah, Georgia
. My only regret is that I did not find him sooner. I am a customer who has never bought over the internet
in my life, but Mr. Bennett is a miracle
!!! Please know that Bennett's Fine Jewelers
in Savannah, Georgia has exceeded my
expectations in quality, price, commitment, service, dedication, and most of all, integrity
!!! I will never shop anywhere else!!!"

"Okay, let me first start off by saying that I live in New York City, also known as the "diamond district of the world." I was searching for a diamond for
approximately a month and couldn't find the diamond specifications for the budget I had. I got frustrated and turned to the internet where I came across
Bennett's Fine Jewelers
in Savannah, Georgia. I became quite interested in talking with Don Bennett
after reading the "About Us"
page and learning that here was a man who had over 53 years experience buying and selling diamonds all over the country and had been in a family owned business
for 60 plus years! I was even more impressed with Don Bennett's knowledge and expertise when I read the "Diamond Grading" section of his website:
"www.bennettsfinejewelers.com." So I called Don on the phone. Wow
! What a wonderful experience! From the very beginning, Don treated me as if
I was his only and most important customer! I spent hours with Don, getting educated and going over the pros and cons of different diamond options. Then Don made
two suggestions that no other diamond merchant had even told me about. He told me about a cushion cut diamond, a "new shape" diamond that was getting very
popular. He explained to me that its "modified rectangular" shape and its "length-to-width" ratio would give me so much of a "bigger look
" for the
size that I was trying to find. And then Don made another suggestion that no other retail jeweler nor internet seller even mentioned: to go with a clarity
enhanced diamond and save 30% or more! At first I was skeptical of purchasing something of such a high dollar amount over the internet without first seeing it,
just like all the other testimonials listed here. Don explained to me something else that no one else had mentioned; i.e., that all diamond grading reports
(a.k.a. "certificates") are "subjective opinions of an experienced diamond grader of an accredited gem laboratory." He spent a very long time with me (on more
than one occasion) and never became pushy. All in all, he enabled me to exceed the diamond specifications I was looking for within my budget that was $3,000 less
than anyone else! And he saved me another $500 on the platinum solitaire mounting, too! I strongly recommend that anyone shopping for an engagement ring contact
Don Bennett at Bennett's Fine Jewelers in Savannah, GA. Thank you so much, Don."

"Don, I just wanted to drop you a short note to let you know how please and excited
my fiancée, Melissa, was when I presented her with the
2 carat diamond engagement ring
I bought from you last month. It was such a pleasureable buying experience for me. Like most people, I didn't know
very much about diamonds. I found you on the internet, and comparing your loose diamond prices to all the others on the internet and to those in retail jewelry
stores, I found your prices to be 50%-to-60% less than everyone else. All I knew was that I wanted to get Melissa a high quality 2 carat round shape diamond solitaire
in a white gold setting. And that I had a budgeted figure in mind. You agreed to meet me on a Sunday afternoon when I drove down from Macon, Georgia; you spent over
3 hours educating me all about the 4 C's - cut, color, clarity, and carat weight. We compared several diamonds - all in my budgeted price range. You advised me to go
with a die-struck comfort fit 6 prong solitaire mounting in 14K white gold, explaining that the savings in dollars on a 14K white gold mounting could be put towards
the diamond's price rather than the increased cost of a platinum mounting. You guided me in choosing the best
and the biggest
diamond for my budget. Not only did you save me over $4,000 on the price of the loose 2.09 CT. diamond and the 14K 4 m/m "Cathedral" solitaire mounting, but you
set the diamond for me, free
, sized the mounting to a finger size of 5.5 free
, while I went out for an early dinner. And you saved
me several hundred dollars more since internet sales carry no sales tax. Thanks, Don. I will recommend you to all my friends and do a lot more business with you."

"My husband and I were looking to upsize the diamond in the ring I've had for many years. We did a lot of internet research, and I looked in several jewelry stores
to get a feel for the size that I felt comfortable with. The stores and salespeople cannot compare with dealing with Don. I called him so many times, just to discuss
what I was thinking about doing and to get his opinion. He was always most patient, not at all pushy and kept telling me that he would be happy to have sent to him
whatever diamonds I thought I would be interested in. I finally found one that I thought would be perfect
, so he had it shipped into him, he
examined it, verified its weight, color grade, clarity grade, and cutting grade. He even verified all of its measurements. It was exactly
wanted. And at a great, unbelievable low price
! I decided it was perfect for me, so we went ahead and overnighted a cashier's check, and included
in the package my original diamond ring for Don to change the center stone. Don removed my original diamond and set it into a pendant; then supplied a new larger
setting for the new, larger
diamond, and set it into my original ring. My ring is so much more beautiful
with a larger
diamond in the center, and I have a beautiful new pendant now, too. The entire experience was very professional. I would recommend this internet company any day to
anyone looking for diamonds. Their pricing beats all the other internet companies. Don has been in business for over 50 years and knows what he is talking about.
Thanks again for getting me an absolutely gorgeous
diamond. We will certainly tell everyone to deal with your company."

"Shopping for an engagement ring? This is the place to buy it. My 2 older brothers told me about Don Benneet and Bennett's Fine Jewelers in Savannah, Georgia.
Both of them had bought their bridal sets from Don, my older brother, Bryan, when Don had his original store in Bainbridge, Georgia, and my brother, Kyle, drove over
to Savannah, Georgia when Don relocated his business there in 2003. Both of them recommended Don so very highly. I had shopped around at many different jewelers in
Albany, Georgia, Macon, Georgia, Valdosta, Georgia, Thomasville, Georgia, Dothan, Alabama, and Tallahassee, Florida, but none could compare to Bennett's Fine Jewelers
in Savannah, Georgia. I even went online and compared prices to national internet sellers like Blue Nile, Diamonds on the Web, and several others, and I found that
Don Bennett could give me a bigger
diamond for less money
! He offered an excellent selection
of loose diamonds and engagement rings for any budget, at unmatched prices! Whether you are looking for a 3/4 carat or a 5 3/4 carat, Don will find the right
at the right price
for you. But most important to me was the personal and friendly service that I received. When buying a diamond,
price is only 50% of the equation: trust and service is the other 50%. Don gives the best personal service
. Don Bennett is very knowledgeable and will
not only get you the best deal, but he will give you the personal service you should expect from a jeweler who will keep you coming back for years to come. Feel free
to use me as a reference: I am a very satisfied customer."

"Mr. Don, it was a sincere pleasure doing business with you. I am so glad that my grandmother told me about you. She told me that she had bought diamonds from your
mother back in the 1950's when your original store was located in Bainbridge, Georgia, and from you when you first got out of college. She recommended you so very
highly. And she has done some considerable diamond business since you relocated to Savannah, Georgia. The diamonds you helped me find are absolutely beautiful
I couldn't be happier with them. I knew that I wanted a 3 diamond anniversary ring style with a vintage antique look, and I knew how much I could spend, but that was
all I knew. I knew nothing about diamonds. Before I talked to you, I had spent months researching diamonds and had spent a considerable amount of time talking with other
diamond dealers, many of whom were retailers and selling very low quality diamonds at outrageous prices. I appreciate your honesty and advice when it came to finding
the 3 perfectly matched diamonds to fit my budget. Talking with you I got to find that you were honest and a knowledgeable professional in every way. I can see why my
grandmother recommended you highly. You explained to me something that no other diamond dealer did.....that the most economical way to get a gorgeous 2 carat
total weight 3 diamond anniversary style ring was not to buy a 1.00 carat center diamond with 2 matched .50 CT. (each) side diamonds for a 2.00 carat total weight,
(the way every other diamond dealer was trying to sell me at much higher prices), but to buy an .85 CT. center diamond with 2 matched .59 CT. (each) side diamonds for
a 2.03 carat
total weight. That really impressed me, Mr. Don. Thanks to you, I received 3 gorgeous
diamonds, all perfectly matched,
set in a magnificent vintage antique style at a great
price! Your customer service was outstanding, and my diamond ring arrived carefuly packaged
two days after I ordered it. You even called to make sure I received the ring and to make sure I was happy with it. Thank you for making this such a good experience
and for getting me such a beautiful ring. I'd strongly recommend you to anyong seeking a great deal
on quality diamonds and tell them that you are
extremely trustworthy and will make their experience just as positive as mine has been. Again, thank you so much. See, a person should always listen to their

diamond stud earrings I bought from you for
her for Christmas. She just loves
them. The 2 diamonds are so perfectly matched. The ones that I looked at here with the local Albany jewelers
didn't seem to match all that well, and they were twice the price

Don. And thanks for such great customer service
, Don. I am so glad that I found your website on the internet. And since I live in Albany, (Georgia)
which is a 6 hour drive to Savannah, you offered to meet me in Douglas, (Georgia), which was half way between our two locations. That saved me about a 3 hour drive.
I really do appreciate it. You delivered the diamond earrings to me on the spot. I will definitely recommend you to all my friends. I am so glad I found you on the internet.
Merry Christmas, Don."

information on the phone, and I knew that you would make up a beautiful

the two rings looked
together and how there was absolutely no space inbetween the engagement ring and the wedding band. You made both of us so very happy. I received the Certified Diamond

"Hi, Don. I purchased a clarity enhanced princess cut diamond from you back in 2005. Shelley Marti, my sister, just finished a purchase with you a few weeks ago. I am
starting to look for an upgrade. Hers is so beautiful, I can't let her outdo me - just kidding! I still have the receipt for my diamond purchase and
didn't know if I could trade it in for the value of the purchase price, $4,199.00. I am looking for a diamond that I will get the biggest bang for the buck. Only shapes
I am not interested in are heart, emerald cut, and marquise. I know some diamonds may have a heavier carat weight, but actually look smaller than a ring of less weight
due to the cut, etc. But I am not particularly educated on all that so if you could me locate one, I am looking in the 2 - 3 carat range, color range is
open, and no more than an I1. I will have to get a new setting, too, but will cross that bridge when we locate the diamond. I look forward to hearing from
"Hi, Don. I got my ring today. I was surprised it got here so fast. I love it
! It is so beautiful
! I am so glad that you recommended
the 3 diamond anniversary ring style as the design for my new diamond. The 2 round brilliant cut diamonds, one weighing .42 CT. and the other weighing .45 CT.,
the color, clarity, and cut of that unbelievable 3 carat oval shape
center diamond that you found for me. What
pleased me even more was the fact that the 3.10 carat oval shape
center diamond not only looked like a 4 carat diamond
, it had
measurements in length of 11.23 m/m
, which actually exceeds the length of a 4 carat oval diamond
! You really did give me the
biggest bang for the buck
, Don; just like I asked. And you gave me such a great
deal on the price, just as you did two years ago.
You took back in trade the 1.70 CT. clarity enhanced princess cut (loose) diamond you sold me 2 years ago, allowing me an additional $877.00 for the "appreciated
increase in value over the past 2 years" for a total trade in amount of $5,076.00, not the $4,199.00 I paid you 2 years ago. Thank you so much, Don. It is such a

My proposal went great, and many sweet memories were made. Michelle absolutely loves the ring
!! (And all the ladies who ask to see it!) She said it's the
most beautiful ring she's ever seen. I must admit that as pretty as it was in your office, it's twice as beautiful
on her hand! It was such a pleasurable
buying experience working with you, choosing the loose princess cut diamond and then the style of solitaire mounting in which to set. I knew absolutely nothing about
diamonds, and I became very confused and frustrated when I shopped around in the jewelry stores in Albany, (GA), Thomasville, (GA), Valdosta, (GA), and here in Tifton, (GA).
I was so glad when one of my co-workers told me that he and two of his brothers had bought engagement rings from you and that you were very honest, had been buying and
selling loose diamonds for decades, and that you would find for a customer the best diamond at the best price
! When I went online and found your
website: www.bennettsfinejewelers.com, I could see that he was right. From our very first telephone conversation I felt very comfortable buying online from a man I had
never met. You explained everything to me about the 4 C's and then told me about how that buying a clarity enhanced diamond could save me 30% or more! No one else ever
told me that. Thank you so very much, for everything that you did. You found for me the perfect diamond
, in my price range, and saved me hundreds
! I will definitely recommend you to my friends."

"Don is such a pleasure to work with. He has expert knowledge of buying/selling diamonds, always responsive, and extremely patient. From the moment I met Don, I knew
I had found my jeweler. He spent a great deal of time with me reviewing individual stones and educating me on what to look for. More importantly, I never felt
pressured to buy anything. A friend of mine on the Brunswick, (GA) police force recommended Don, so I went onto his website, and I was impressed - with his education,
his background, his years (decades) in the business, and his expertise. And I was very impressed with the extremely low prices on quality diamonds on his

Don in Savannah, (GA), made an appointment with him after his regular business hours, which he offered to do to accommodate me. And when I met w/ Don, he told me about
clarity enhanced diamonds, something no one in Brunswick or St. Simons Island, (GA) had done. I knew I had found my jeweler! You helped me find the perfect

the jewelry stores in Hinesville, Statesboro, Jesup, and Savannah, (GA) and even looked at the PX's at both Hunter AAF and at Fort Stewart. No one at the PX's knew
anything about diamond grading, and all the salespeople in the jewelry stores in Savannah and the surrounding towns wanted to sell me what they had in their showcases
at outrageously high prices
! I wanted to buy an individual loose diamond after making an educated buying decision and wanted to have it mounted into
a very special solitaire mounting, and I wanted to do it within my budget. My buddies told me that was the way Don Bennett sold diamonds. So I went on Mr. Bennett's
website: www.bennettsfinejewelers.com. I was so glad I did. I telephoned Don Bennett and made an appointment to go see him. Mr. Bennett made my purchase a very
pleasurable experience. He spent 3 hours with me, explaining all about diamonds. He helped me find the perfect diamond
to fit my price range, and
then he guided me in the selection of an ideal mounting
to have it set into. He sized the mounting to the correct finger size, set the diamond into
the mounting, and gave me a certified diamond appraisal

"Don, I want to upgrade the 1.77 carat round brilliant cut diamond that I bought from you December 7, 2004. It was a most enjoyable buying experience for me when I
bought that diamond from you a little over 2 1/2 years ago; I was very comfortable buying a large diamond from you over the internet, first looking at your website
and then talking with you over the phone. Once you found that 1.77 carat diamond that was the exact size and quality diamond that I
was looking for, you gave me such a super low price that saved me thousands of dollars compared to the prices of similar diamonds
I looked at out here in Bryan (AR) and Little Rock, (AR). And after talking with you on the phone, I was very comfortable sending you a cashier's check
in advance of your sending the completed diamond ring to me by registered mail. You will recall that I sent you an email and followed up with a phone call to tell you
how pleased I was with the quality and price of the center diamond and of the complete ring, the great
customer service, and that I was going to recommend you to my sister, Kelley Mercer. I did, and she told me that she bought a beautiful 1.70 carat princess
cut clarity enhanced diamond from you, and set it into her original engagement ring. So, now I want a bigger center diamond set into a new
& different style of engagement ring with larger sizes of side diamonds! And I want to get a full amount of trade in on what I paid you for
the 1.77 round brilliant cut diamond almost 2 1/2 years ago! What do you suggest?"

ring that was delivered by FedEx overnight

as to how
it is! It is outstanding, no that is the wrong word - it is out of this world

go with 2 3/4 carat cushion cut
diamond as the center stone with the new semi-mounting style #Y5660AA containing 74 round brilliant cut side diamonds
totaling 1.29 carats

with my new ring, Don. I am so glad that I left it totally up to you to choose
the size, shape, and quality of the center diamond and the style of the semi-mounting in which to set it. I am thrilled
as to the super low
you gave me on the difference in the trade in. You gave me a very low price
on this gorgeous 4 carat
ring and then deducted $4,699.00
from the price for the trade-in of the 1.77 carat round brilliant cut diamond you sold me about 2 1/2 years ago. Such
a great deal
, Don. I can't wait to show my new ring to my sister, Kelley. Thanks again, Don. You have made me so happy!"

"Mr. Bennett, the diamond engagement ring that I bought from you when I worked for the Glynn County school system in Brunswick, (GA) two years ago was stolen during
a home burglary we experienced after my wife, Yolanda, and I moved here to McDonough, (GA) in the Atlanta, (GA) area a couple of months ago. I was so pleased with the
shape, the size, the quality, and most of all, the price, of that diamond I bought from you then
that I want to buy my wife another diamond engagement ring from you! This time I want a big marquise diamond set onto a wider band.
And, as you did for me two years ago when I first bought from you at the recommendation of my boss, the superintendnt of the Glynn County Board of Education in Brunswick,
(GA), at a great low price!"
"Mr. Bennett, I just received delivery of the registered mail package in which you had the gorgeous diamond engagement ring
I had you make up for
Yolanda. It is outstandingly beautiful
! I had been anxiously awaiting its arrival ever since you had telephoned me a couple of weeks ago to tell me
that you had found for me the perfect marquise diamond
- a 1 3/4 carat marquise diamond
that had the length
exceeding those of a 2 carat marquise diamond
, and being clarity enhanced, was priced almost 40% less
I could hardly wait to see it. So, when it arrived today, I anxiously tore into the package, and I was delighted
! As to how big
marquise diamond was, how beautifully "white"
its color was, how great
its clarity was, and best of all, how its ideal cut
gave it so much brilliance, scintillation
, and fire
! Yolanda will be thrilled. Thank you so very much, Mr. Bennett. I will most
definitely recommend you to all of my co-workeres in the Atlanta, (GA) area school system. Merry Christmas."

"Mr. Bennett, it was such a pleasure working with you and having you make up a 3 diamond anniversary ring for me. My husband, Rick, and I knew that I wanted a 3
diamond anniversary ring for my anniversary, but neither of us knew very much about diamonds, nothing about the 4 C's, and so we started looking in jewelry stores
here in the Beaufort, (SC) area. We shopped around in jewelry store after jewelry store - in Beaufort
, (SC), Bluffton
, (SC), even drove up to Charleston
, (SC), and Myrtle Beach
, (SC). In none of these stores did any of
the salespeople try to educate us on diamond qualities, nor did any of them try to match 3 loose diamonds
to find 3 that matched perfectly and that
fit into our budget
! Then we found your website online, and I am so glad that we did. Your website, www.bennettsfinejewelers.com was so
, I felt as though I might have found a solution to my problem. I called you on the phone, and we talked for a long time about what I was looking
for. I told you what our budget was, and you said: "no problem." We set up an appointment to visit with you, at which time you showed us a selection of several
choices of 3 matched diamonds, and several choices of blank mountings, all within our budget. You explained in detail, everything about each diamond in each of the
several matched groups, something no other salesperson had done. You guided my husband and me into making a very wise, educated buying decision. I ended up getting a
much larger total diamond weight in a much better quality at a much lower price
than anywhere else. Thank you, Mr. Bennett. We will contact you for
all of our future diamond purchases."

engagement ring you made up for me to Bina, and you
saw how happy, excited, and pleased
she was, I just wanted to tell you again, "thanks so much", for making our engagement such a joyous occasion.
I have thanked Pete so many times for recommending you to me. You are everything that Pete said you were - and more! Knowledgeable with a world of expertise, helpful,
courteous, patient, understanding, and with decades of being in the business, you have the knowledge and the "connection" (you know all the "right people" in the "right
places" to get the "impossible done three days before yesterday"). This was very much evident when I first came to you looking for an engagement ring for Bina.
Within 5 working days, you had that very special custom made diamond engagement ring
in all 18 Karat gold
ready for deliery to me
one day before the big engagement party at Oakridge

! It being one stone,
it looks so much larger
than the 12 small princess cut diamonds set in the 4 rows to look like one diamond. You buffed, polished, and rhodium
finished the ring after you set the 1 3/4 carat princess cut diamond
in the center so well tht it looked like it was brand new. And thank you for
suggesting that I have you make a diamond pendant out of the 12 diamond cluster head that you took out of my original engagement ring. By using a 14K white gold rope
chain that I already had, all you had to do was to solder onto the cluster head a 14K white gold bale. Now I have a gorgeous
new engagement with a
big 1 3/4 carat princess cut diamond
and a new diamond pendant that you created for me. I am so glad that I found your website on the internet. I had
looked at websites all over the internet and in jewelry stores all over Arkansas, even went to Sissy's Log Cabin in Little Rock, and your website offered me the most
choices at the lowest prices

you did all of this through a few emails and phone calls. Thank you so much. I will tell all my friends about you and will recommend you to everyone."

"Don, my wife is delighted
with the 7 diamond anniversary ring
that I purchased from you for her birthday. She had expressed a
desire for this type of ring, so I went out shopping around to get the best quality diamonds at the best possible price. I went to all the jewelry stores in the
malls, only to find that all the salespeople in the mall jewelry stores knew nothing about diamond qualities and showed me diamond rings at ridiculously high prices.
I got the same results at the independent jewelers. I was getting very frustrated! So, I decided to look on the internet, where I came across your website. I was
very impressed with your education, your expertise, your number of years in the business, so I decided that I would give you a phone call to see if you knew of the
style of ring that I was looking for. To my surprise, not only did you know exactly
the style of the ring I was looking for, you told me that you had
style of ring in stock
in the 1 carat total weight version
. When I came in to look at the ring the next
day, you explained to me in detail the clarity, the color, and the cut of each
of the 7 matched marquise diamonds. And to top it all off, you gave me
an unbelievably low, low price
saving me several hundred dollars

"Mr. Don, my grandmother, Betty Parker, recommended you so very highly. She told me that she and her family had bought diamonds and jewelry from you and your mother,
before you, when you were still in college. I went on your website, and I must admit that I was impressed. I read in detail your website's section "Diamond Grading",
and it is very informative and educational. And I see in reading the "About Us" section of your website that my grandfather, Johnson Parker, was in the same high
school graduating class of 1953 as you were in Bainbridge High School. With such high recommendations from my grandparents and after reviewing your website, I feel
very comfortable dealing with you in finding for me the perfect diamond engagement ring for my perfect fiancée! Let me tell you what I am looking
for; an engagement ring in all 14K white gold, finger size = 5 3/4, with a 1 carat princess cut center diamond with small round diamonds around it, (sort of in a

receiving and examining the ring first hand and from someone I had not met in person, but after reading all about your qualifications and testimonials from other
satisfied customers who bought from you over the internet, I decided to call you and talk to you on the phone. I had looked at diamond solitaire rings, loose diamonds,
and blank mountings at jewelry stores all over Glenville, Vidalia, Claxton, Statesboro, and Savannah, and at none of these stores did anyone explain anything to me
about diamond sizes or qualities. And no one offered me the choices of individual diamonds at the low, low prices
you did, Mr. Bennett. After my second
conversation with you on the phone, I felt very comfortable sending you the money in advance of seeing the diamond. You were very patient and very knowledgeable, and it
was a pleasure working with you. Thank you, Mr. Bennett, for your patience, with my dithering, you made it a lot of fun. I hope you enjoyed a great Christmas

first about buying such an important purchase from someone I did not know, and even more hesitant about sending a Cashier's Check in advance of my seeing the
finished ring, but I became very comfortable when I perused your "Diamond Grading" pages of your website, as you "educated me" about all of the nuances in what
qualities would offer me the biggest look for my money
in a single stone ring, and I became even more comfortable when I read about how many
decades you had been in the business of buying and selling diamonds, as well as your educational background and qualifications. And when I called you on the phone
that very first time, I was convinced that I should buy my engagement ring from you. You gave me such good advice as to which diamond I should choose, and your

saved me thousands of dollars

"Don Bennett is the real deal. When I began shopping for an engagement ring, I had my doubts about working anyone long distance. I did a lot of research online as
well as shopping with the local area retail jewelry stores in the Jensen Beach, Florida
area. From the moment I first talked with Mr. Bennett on the
phone, I knew I had found my jeweler. He spent a great deal of time with me reviewing stones and educating me as to what to look for. More importantly, I never felt
pressured to buy anything. He is a great pleasure to work with. He has expert knowledge of buying and selling diamonds, always responsive, and extremely patient. He
makes you feel that you are his most important customer all the time, listens attentively, and explains clearly. I wanted a high quality diamond at a very
reasonable price. Mr. Bennett gave me good advice on what grades of diamond I should focus my search on to get the best values. He spent hours going over a list of
suitable diamonds with me. Within one week I found the perfect diamond. He mounted it into a solitaire engagement ring style for me the same day I chose the stone,
sized the mounting to fit my fiancée's finger, and shipped it the next day after I overnighted a Cashier's Check to him. Great customer service
! I am
extremely pleased and recommend wholeheartedly that you get in touch with Mr. Bennett if you are looking to buy diamonds. I am confident that you will become a satisfied
customer like the rest of the customers who wrote rave reviews about their experiences. Thanks."

"To say that Don Bennett is everything good that you look for in a salesperson wrapped up in one would be an understatement. All it took was one phone call. I read
articles online for months, and I honestly learned quite a bit. However, during that one phone call, I learned from Mr. Bennett more than I had read in months. I
feel like I can lecture folks on the art of diamond buying now. Mr. Bennett walked with me the entire way (for weeks I might add), suggesting ring styles and diamond
shapes and teaching me the basics and even the not so basics in diamonds. Mr. Bennett was extra patient. Needless to say, I finally decided on something he
recommended and (I still can't believe it) the ring came out better
than the already overly gorgeous
pictures, so much
! Mr. Bennet is hands down the best
I have ever worked with. Every phone call since the first was more pleasing than the last. Integrity
is what you get with this man. His patience seems limitless. Looking for expertise and knowledge? No one better. Thank you, Mr. Bennett, for making buying an
engagement ring such a pleasurable experience. I wish I could audio record what I am typing so people could hear how ecstatic I am. All it takes is one phone call,

despaired of finding a replacement at anywhere near what I had paid 11 years ago. Then I found Don Bennett when I came across his website: www.bennettsfinejewelers.com
online. Mr. Bennett helped us design the same arrangement but with even better quality diamonds than before......at just a tiny increase in the original cost. In fact,
Mr. Bennett's price on the complete ring, had it been the same diamond quality as it was originally, would have been about 25% less than what I paid the
11 years ago! And I got better quality diamonds
this time! Mr. Bennett was great to work with. He eased the normal fears
of buying over the internet from someone you have not physically met with the opportunity to examine the diamonds first hand. Couldn't have asked for a better
experience, and my wife is more than thrilled

experience. Don's internet website is the best one that I have seen; it explains everything about diamond quality that enables anyone to make a wise buying
decision. What I was looking for was a pair of fine quality diamond stud earrings set in platinum. All of the local jewelry stores in central Tennessee either didn't
have it in platinum, and those that did had prices that were outrageously high
! And most of the diamond stud earrings contained diamonds of very poor
quality. I am so glad that I found Don online. He found within one day exactly
what I was looking for.....2 perfectly matched round diamonds, each
measuring the exact same 4.1 m/m diameter
, each weighing .25 carat, each with the very high clarity grade of "VS1
", the "colorless" color
grade of "F", and the very high cutting grade of "premium

quality diamonds into the platinum earring mountings
for me and saved me hundreds of dollars

Our local jewelers tried to sell us 3 diamond anniversary rings half the size and quality from the diamond rings we found here. Of course we had lots of questions
and some fear about purchasing online, but Don took great care of us from the start. He explained to us that it was best to match 3 loose diamonds, as this
procedure insured that the 3 diamonds would match perfectly
in clarity, color, and cut. Don explained to us all about the 4 C's. He listened to what
we wanted and helped us find 3 perfectly matched diamonds
that far surpassed my expectations

expected, and I know it's because we trusted Don to do what he does best! The man is honest, straight-forward, and he knows diamonds! I'm so pleased we shopped here

"Don, words cannot express how happy and pleased I am with the 1 1/2 carat diamond solitaire engagement ring
I purchased from you. Your internet
website's "Diamond Grading" educated me about the 4 C's that I knew I could trust you completely in selecting a diamond for me. I remember so well your advice to me
when we had our first conversation on the telephone. I told you what my budget was, and you told me that you had 2 diamonds that fit perfectly
that budget - one was a 1 carat
that measured 6.2 m/m in girdle diameter, was an "F" in color, a "VS2
" in clarity, and a "2A" in cut, and
one that was a 1 1/2 carat - 50% bigger in size
, measuring 6.9 m/m in girdle diameter, was a "G" in color, an "SI2
" in clarity, and a "3A"
in cut. You told me both diamonds were the same price, and you recommended the bigger 1 1/2 carat diamond
. You said that bigger is better
particularly since no one can distinguish a "VS2
" from an "SI2
" clarity without examining the 2 diamonds under a 10x power binopular microscope,
loose, nor can anyone distinguish an "F" color from a "G" color without a set of laboratory graded "master stones", loose, with the diamonds upside down, examined
from the underside. The .7 m/m difference is huge
, plus the wider "table" on the 1 1/2 carat
makes it look even bigger
You recommended the larger diamond. My fiancée loves
it. She gets so many compliments on it. Everyone says it is so big
! Thanks for your wonderful service and attention. I know you will be there for me if I need to call on you in the future. Thank you & happy

"Don, I am so glad that I found you on the internet. I was still in Dublin, California last month when I was searching for someone who would make up a diamond
engagement ring like my mother's, you know, a style that was popular in the 1950's, with the "fishtail" style head that held the center diamond and with 4 round side
diamonds, 2 on each side of the center stone. I couldn't find this style, in platinum, in any of the retail jewelry stores, nor could I find anyone online that would
make it up for me in platinum. I happened to come across your internet website, where you stated that you could make up any design as a special order. Right after
Toyota transferred me here to Tokyo, Japan, I sent you an email, and you knew exactly the style engagement ring I wanted. Your mother sold that style in the 1950's
when she first went into business. You found for me the perfect diamonds
....a 1.55 carat center diamond with 4 perfectly matched
diamonds totaling .65 carat, for a total diamond weight of 2.20 carat. And you made up the exact style
I wanted in all platinum. You shipped it to me
FedEx here in Tokyo, and when I received it, I was floored
by how beautiful
it was! It surpassed my expectations. Absolutely
! My fiancée just loves
it. And I am really delighted

"I really have to thank Mr. Bennett for helping me pick out the right diamond and also getting me informed in detail about everything I should know about selecting
a diamond. I heard about Mr. Bennett after my friend told me he purchased a 1 1/2 carat diamond from him. I was very skeptical at first when he told me that he was
sending a cashier's check in advance to someone in Savannah, Georgia that he hasn't even met in person! But in fact, when I got in touch with Mr. Bennett regarding
my diamond, I could tell that he was really an honest man and I knew I'd be well taken care of! I will definitely recommend Mr. Bennett, to any of my friends looking
for a diamond, and I hope to purchase another one in the future for my wedding anniversary. You can bet that it will be from Mr. Bennett, because he will give you
the best deal on a quality diamond at the lowest price
you can find anywhere."

"Don, just a short note to let you know that Cathy really was ecstatic
when she opened up the box and saw the magnificent 3 diamond
you specifically designed for her. You did exactly what I askd of you.......find for me a center diamond over 3 carats
size, but one that looked like a 5 carat diamond
, with a large diamond on each side. You suggested an oval shape center diamond
because of its length-to-width measurements and with large triangular shaped diamond ("trillions") on each side of the oval shaped center diamond. You found for me an
enlongated 3.30 carat oval center diamond
and 2 matched trillion diamonds that weighed .83 carats (each), all 3 diamonds matched perfectly
and the total weight of the 3 diamonds is 5 carats
! And you set those 3 gorgeous diamonds
into a 14K all white gold custom made
mounting. We went to a New Year's Eve dance at the country club, and you should have heard the raves from everyone there. We both are so pleased
the ring looks. Thanks, Don. It is such a pleasure doing business with you."

"Don, Harriet said that the diamond necklace you made up for me for our 40th anniversary was the most beautiful
piece of diamond jewelry she had
ever seen! I really was at a loss as to what to get her, as I had bought her some really nice pieces from you over the years, and I really wanted something super
special for her 40th wedding anniversary. As you know, I always run something like this by my daughter to get her input. She suggested a 4 carat diamond
so I sent her in to talk to you. You suggested that you find me a diamond of that size, set it into a pendant enhancer on an 18K white gold Omega neckchain. You
searched the diamond marketplace and found for me a fantastic 4.28 carat diamond
at a great price
, found a perfect
pendant enhancer mounting to set it into, and supplied the 18K white gold Omega neckchain, one graduated in size and width so that the diamond enhancer remained
"centered" on the necklace. It was a stunning
design. Harriet just loves
it. It made our 40th the best anniversary ever. I can
always rely on your knowledge of the diamond market, your expertise in buying and selling diamonds, your honesty and integrity to provide me with the finest quality
diamonds at the lowest possible prices! Have a great 2003!"

"Don, I just want you to know how much my wife loved
the diamond solitaire ring
you made up for me. I was getting very frustrated
looking in all of the jewelry stores in the Albany, GA area. None of the local jewelers there educated me about the 4 C's in diamond grading, and none of them could
find for me a big 4 carat diamond
in my price range. Then I saw your newspaper ad in the Albany Herald's Sunday Edition, announcing your new website.
I called you the very next day, and you told me you could definitely find me a 4 carat pear shape diamond
in my price range, but that it might take
a few weeks to find the perfect
stone. It did - it took you 2 months to find me the right diamond at the right price
. But you did it,
something no one else could do. And your price was exactly in my price range. You got that diamond in on approval, I drove down to your store in Bainbridge, met with
you on a Saturday afternoon. You showed me the diamond as well as a 14K all white gold solitaire mounting that was the right size for that size diamond and showed me
how it would look in the mounting. I was convinced that my long search for the perfect diamond was over. I gave you a check on the spot, you set the diamond the
following Monday morning, and you put it in the mail that afternoon. I received it on Thursday afternoon at my office. I was delighted
as to how
the finished ring looked. I gave it to my wife that night. She was ecstatic
when she saw it, Don. Thanks ever so much. I
will definitely do more business with you in the future. Have a great Thanksgiving."
