I recommend diamond and design in chino hills doesn’t get any better than them
That's where I purchased my soon to be wife's engagement ring. I'm looking to get something made for her. I went to D&D again but would like to check around before pulling the trigger.

@jpwaverider A member on here owns Kolo Jewelers in Downtown LA. Also a


We have bought earrings and rings through Joe. He is very professional, very aggressive on pricing and by far the highest quality.

Go see my friend Dave and his wife Kathy at Henderson Jewelers in Burbank. He is a military vet and Purple Heart recipient.

Jewelers don't boat. They like their money too much
there is one Jeweler that is on RDP that I've been using for over 20 years. Maybe Joe as reached out already, IDK.. If you are interested in his info, PM Me. He is legit, but he is out of DTLA.

Gabe is top notch:
Had my wife’s ring made by him last year. Extremely satisfied. Located on Harbor just north of 91 freeway

x10 for Happy Jewelers in Fullerton. I will never ever go anywhere else.

Gabe is the real deal and his Yelp reviews reflect his service and prices. They live right up the street from me.

I have a very close friend who has a 'MAJOR HOOK UP" with a very seasoned wholesaler in LA, she's in Upland and is very experienced and knowledgeable and extremely fair priced on EXCELLENT quality jewelry. On FB you can hit her up at JW Diamond Connection, or Judi Chisholm-Welch

Gabe is the best in the business. I've been going there for years and have referred many friends and RDP members there in the past. His custom work is amazing and he can be trusted. From rings, to necklaces, to custom watches, he does it all.

Here's a ring he made for my wife for our 20-year anniversary.. Custom Ring

Downtown LA is where I would go first! They are the supplier to all the stores. Bring cash or gold or silver to trade. They barter and haggle prices too.

Go to the jewelry district in L.A. and buy your stones. Then choose the artist that will design and build it.
We used Craig, owner of Serengeti West in San Luis Obispo. He has been doing this stuff for many decades and is extremely talented and creative.

Call Desert Wholesale Diamonds and talk to “Diamond Dave”. They’re in Palm Desert. Best experience buying jewelry I’ve ever had.

Thanks for the recommendations. Found what I wanted at Happy Jewelers. Great place and very helpful. Prices are good too. Wish I would have known about this place sooner.

Jewelry by Zaka in Orange. I’ve spent some money there over the years; she’s the best I’ve found.

Got my wife a beautiful anniversary ring at 25 years and we exchanged them in Kauai while renewing our vows, was awesome.



For 30 years she got princess diamond cage earrings in the Bahamas.

Gabe, gets all our Business...

It's Funny or sad... when you go see Gabe at his location in Fullerton/Anaheim (it's similar to a swamp meet type layout) his booth/space is busting out at the seams, while the other business's are waiting for Gabe, to drop some breadcrumbs...

In all reality, the only value it really has is sentimental value. Daughter has put a claim in it. Said since she is second daughter and this is mom’s second ring, she should get it
