I had an amazing experience with Kent, specifically with Greg who was patient, funny, detail oriented, and fair throughout the whole process of designing a bespoke diamond wedding band. We were able to choose everything and we got exactly what we were hoping for, at a price that beat the other quotes from diamond district dealers. They included an appraisal for insurance without our asking, for no additional cost, and everytime we stopped by, Greg would offer to clean my fiancée's engagement ring. I would recommend anyone to take their business here!
My husband and I bought our wedding bands at Kent 16 years ago and now live in Florida. We continue to use Kent for all our repairs because we trust them so much.
I recently purchased a set of stackable diamond rings. I have received numerous complements on how beautiful they are. Michael truly has a gift for creating fine pieces of jewelry. Thanks to Kent Jewelers I not only own this set of fine jewelry, but also a work of art!
Words cannot express how pleased I was with my fiance's wedding band when it arrived! I discovered the jeweler on Etsy! Though this jeweler located far north of SC, Aaron extended some "southern hospitality" and prompt and thorough communication. To top it off, they were able to engrave something special on the inside of the band for me. Perfect engraving! Thanks for providing a lifetime memory for me. He's gonna love it!!!
I have purchased diamonds form Kent New York three times now. No easy feat considering I live in Melbourne, Australia. I have dealt with Greg & Michael and was both impressed by their knowledge and non “hard sell” attitude. Prior to stumbling across Kent New York, I like many others, had also been to the diamond district. It was chaotic, stressful and confusing. Interesting since I had previously worked in the jewellery trade for 6 years and not so easily rattled. I would highly recommend a visit to these guys, even if you do still want to run the gauntlet that is the diamond district.
Top notch service!! I came all the way from Sweden to shop an engagement ring here. Great prices, large inventory and very fast in helping out with settings and size adjustments.
They got my mother in law’s stone set onto a platinum ring beautifully! Nick who helped us was very nice and professional.
Top quality, fair prices, friendly service – perfect jeweler! Went to get a diamond set for an engagement ring, and Nick got us exactly the design we were looking for.
I'd highly recommend Kent New York - they were awesome. I was looking for a specific kind of engagement ring. Greg was my main point of contact and was not only incredibly knowledgeable on all things diamond and engagement ring related but also very patient throughout my research and purchasing visits to the store. I completely trusted Greg and the custom designed ring I ended up with was exactly what I wanted. After getting a wonderful "yes" we needed to get the ring slightly re-sized and Greg and Kent were, once again, awesome and got it resized in just a couple of days. 5 stars. We'll go there again for the wedding bands. Thanks Greg!
These guys were great from A to Z. Had my own diamond set in a new ring. The custom work was completed exactly as discussed and the setting was done in front of my eyes and came out great. Nick was courteous, friendly and followed through on everything he promised. The shop was less chaotic and lower pressure than most of the other spots in Diamond District. If you are shopping, give these guys a look.
I live in Virginia but grew up in New York and my family made it known that when it was time to get an engagement ring that I absolutely HAD to go to the Diamond District. So I drove all the way up today with the lucky lady and set off on trying to figure out which store to stop in first. I heard great things about Kent Jewelers and of course they have an impeccable online reputation to boot so I made them my first (and ultimately only) stop. You of course have to run the gauntlet from all of the high-pressured sales people standing outside their shops but it was totally worth it to get to this place. I read about Nick on their reviews and he totally lives up to his reputation. He helped us pick out the perfect ring for my soon-to-be fiancé with a no pressure, no stress approach. He showed us a variety of rings and always had a smile on his face and never once felt that we were wasting his time; a total professional through and through. They had a wide selection to chose from and and she finally settled on a beautiful twist style that was very reasonably priced and absolutely perfect (and who am I to complain? Happy wife = happy life!). We had the stone so it jusy needed to be set which took no more than an hour. Michael, the owner, was also a real pleasure to talk to and really demonstrated why this company is so highly regarded. I can't recommend Kent Jewelers enough and I will make sure to have all future jeweler purchases go through them first, even if it means a five hour car drive. They're a real gem (pardon the pun) and a mandatory stop if you're in the neighborhood. Thanks again, guys! You're the best!
Nick has to be one of the most patient and knowledgeable jewelers in all of NYC. I went to him 4 different times within 3 weeks looking for diamond rings and each time he answered every single one of my questions. He is a wealth of knowledge and never pushed a sale on me once. Each time I walked out of he door he could have wasted hours of his time teaching me, only to have had me buy a ring somewhere else. Genuinely good guys, after shopping at almost every other place in the diamond district I can say that I will be returning here for all my needs. The ring that was made for my fiancé was beyond perfect. Thank you Kent!!!
I have been nervous about buying an engagement ring for a long time. Not for the commitment to my lovely girlfriend but about being ripped off by vulture salespeople. I didn't know anything about jewelry and never bought a diamond before. In comes Greg. He helped me and my now fiancée with picking the perfect ring. She was pretty set on a Tacori Royal T series setting which is way overpriced (I can't afford it) and she knows it. It was honestly the only one that grabbed my attention as well. Greg ensured me that he could have her setting custom made like a Tacori for a fraction of the price with the same carat gold. He also went over about 4 different diamonds with me. I had a budget in mind but he also informed me that the setting that was picked out required a certain size rock to look and fit proper. Greg helped me to not sacrifice the color or clarity in lieu of carat.He really taught me a lot about diamonds while I was there. Lo and behold the ring came out incredible. I don't even like jewelry and I was shocked by its beauty. The soon-to-be Mrs is in complete awe over it. I don't think she was expecting such a perfect piece. This ring is going to be timeless. Thanks Greg!
This is definitely one of the nicer, more presentable stores in the diamond district. Nick was very helpful and pleasant to deal with, not to mention very patient as I didn't know much about engagement rings. Not once did I feel pressured into buying anything I didn't want to and after shopping around other jewelers in NY and NJ Kent's prices were on par, or better. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
Exceptional service by Nick and extremely pleased x
In my search for an engagement ring, I checked several New York jewelers that had good customer reviews, however most either did not have any asscher diamonds on hand and would have needed time to get them, or really pushed the one stone they did have that was close to my desired specifications. Nick at Kent Jewelry was not only a pleasure to work with, but immediately presented two excellent options at competitive prices, and helped us select the best one. I also saw a necklace during my visit that I was interested in purchasing, and Nick even offered to hold it for me while I made my decision. I would definitely go to see Nick at Kent if you are looking for diamonds or other beautiful jewelry.
Nick and his brother are the absolute best. My husband got my engagement ring here and we finally got around to meeting them in person recently while in NYC. Got a push present too:) If you're looking for responsive, fast, & honest jewelers, search stops here.
Fantastic service with lots of personal touches. We Love Greg and will continue purchasing from him for years to come.
My husband and I decided to go window shopping for a new wedding set to commemorate our 20th anniversary. We stumbled across Kent Jewlers and was immediately greeted by Michael. We explained that we were just browsing but he was more than willing to show us different styles. He was very informative even though I had no idea what I wanted. He asked me really good questions and by the time we were done he was able to come up with a beautiful creation based on my likes! Needless to say, we ended up buying a beautiful engagement ring and matching wedding band right then! I didn't feel pressured at all. Michael and Kent Jewlers custom made my rings based on what we wanted and when the day finally came for us to pick it up, I couldn't believe my eyes!!!! The rings came out even more gorgeous than I could've possibly imagined!!! I would recommend them to anyone searching for a reputable jeweler! Thank you again for my new piece of magic!
I highly recommend this jeweler. Nick B. was direct, helpful and to-the-point. Also, a fine businessman. These are valuable vendor qualities especially in an industry as competitive (and often times tricky) as diamond trading. Kent New York will offer prices as competitive as Blue Nile but with the key benefit of being able to see what you are purchasing before you commit.
