It was a truly special morning we spend meeting with Yuval Braveman at J and J Zaidman in January of 2015. Our experience exceeded our expectations and the custom ring suggested and created by them was really something special. Close friends referred us as we were looking to have a family canary diamond set into an engagement ring.

We arrived at the New York office and met with Yuval Braveman for close to two hours as he explained different settings and his ideas for creating a very special diamond engagement ring. We were both so very impressed with not only his expertise but also his patience as we thought over different options.

Honestly, I can’t stress enough what a wonderful experience it was to work with such a professional. Our custom work was delivered exactly when they promised and there were no undisclosed charges. I strongly recommend this company without reservation.

Yuval and his team made the process of buying an engagement ring truly special. Every question or concern I had was addressed promptly and I felt comfortable from start to finish. From the education he provided to the craftsmanship of his product, Yuval surpassed every expectation. I’m excited to work with Yuval on my wedding bands and I can confidently say J&J Zaidman will be my first stop for all of my jewelry needs going forward.

My good friend took me to meet Yuval to have a halo set ring made for a pear shaped diamond. The whole process was a pleasure. Yuval explained to me it would be custom made and showed me what size diamonds would look best both around the pear shaped diamond and on the band. He took a lot of his time with me and treated me like he knew me forever. The halo ring is beautiful and far beyond my expectations. It is perfect and really impressive. I actually had tears in my eyes when I saw it.  This ring will definitely make my daughter’s dreams come true. I want to thank Yuval, Stephanie, Kelly, and Benjamin for their kindness and expertise.

My husband and I met Yuval last year, and we were both clueless about diamonds.  Yuval spent close to 2 hours with us educating us the different aspects of diamonds.  It really helped us to understand what we are looking for.  He and his team created a gorgeous engagement ring for us, and we were extremely pleased with the work.  We went back for my wedding band, and again, did a superb job.  We have received so many compliments on both rings.  They look perfect together.  We enjoyed coming to visit Yuval and his team, as they really made us feel like part of the family. We are excited to stop by next time we are in NYC.  We are so honored to have been introduced to him, and we look forward to working with him again on many other occasions in the future!

Working with Yuval and his colleagues was an enjoyable and seamless process. I sought out a custom jeweler who would be able to not only provide me with an incredible engagement ring but to also introduce and provide me with knowledge about the diamond industry. Yuval personally took time out of his schedule to have me come meet with him and discuss the exact parameters of what I thought would be an incredible ring for my now bride. Before he would let me order, however, he made sure I knew every aspect about the diamond I was about to purchase. The custom ring Yuval created far exceeded my own expectations and made her saying yes much easier (thanks Yuval!).

Treasure for a Lifetime

I went to Yuval with an idea and a dream.  He listened closely, and used his vast knowledge of gemstones and jewelry making to make my dream ring a reality.  Placing my vision in his hands, he patiently guided me through each phase of the creation process.

Yuval willingly shared his knowledge, creativity and enthusiasm for the world of gemstones and the rings construction.  I listened with amazement as he educated me on the quality and characteristics of gemstones and the blending of their colors.  He showed me an extensive array of stones from which to choose and only stopped when we felt “the one” had been found.

Yuval is a terrific listener!  Using ideas I had researched and brought to him to help demonstrate how I wanted the ring to look, he was able to hear what I was trying to say and designed a setting that exactly matched what I had envisioned.  The construction of the setting is sturdy and secure with a level of quality only found with superior pieces.  No light weight, cookie cutter mounting here.  Each piece Yuval designs is made by hand and he oversees the construction closely to ensure every facet is displayed in the best light.

What seemed to be an overwhelming task at the outset of the process became a joyful and exciting experience in Yuval’s hands, culminating in the creation of a piece I am so proud to wear and will treasure for a lifetime.  Thank you, Yuval!

I was already looking at options to surprise my wife with an “upgrade” to her engagement ring as part of a special ceremony we were planning to renew our wedding vows when a friend referred me to Yuval. From our first telephone conversation, I knew this was someone I wanted to work with.

Yuval spent considerable time with me to educate and discuss options in a way that made the diamond buying experience rewarding and fun. He guided me to the classic look and exceptional quality I was looking for. By the time we were done, we had designed the new engagement ring, a stunningly beautiful diamond eternity band, and my wife’s original diamond was re-set in a beautiful pendant. Of course Yuval orchestrated everything from perspective of style and quality, giving me total confidence. The staff at J&J offered exceptional service and attention, making me totally comfortable at every step of the process.

It goes without saying I wouldn’t consider a future diamond purchase from anyone else.

“Blown Away”

I recently worked with Yuval to find my fiancé’s engagement ring. I decided that I wanted the engagement to be a surprise, so I did not ask her for any “hints” and I cannot imagine navigating this process with another jeweler. Yuval spent ample time educating me and I was fully armed with enough information to pick out the perfect ring. In the end, my future wife was blown away with the ring I chose. Much of the credit can be given to Yuval and the J & J team as every diamond I was shown had a little something special that I did not see anywhere else. Even Yuval’s custom setting and band added an element of uniqueness that other jewelers could not match. Not only did I find a jeweler that I trust and will return to whenever the occasion arises, but I also met a friend I look forward to catching up with whenever I introduce J&J Zaidman to others looking for a special piece of jewelry.

“Extremely Impressed”

When I was referred to Yuval to design my fiancé’s engagement ring, I had little to no knowledge or experience with diamonds. The time and care he took to explain diamonds, the diamond business, and his process was unprecedented. I immediately felt comfortable with Yuval and knew that I didn’t want to work with anyone else. When it came time to choose the stone, he carefully selected a handful of stones that met my criteria and walked me through each of them, pointing out their pluses and minuses. I truly appreciated his honesty and it played an enormous role in my decision-making process. When the ring arrived, it was even more beautiful than I imagined and I knew that my fiancé would love it.  I turned out that it was exactly what she wanted and we will enjoy it for the rest of our lives! Overall, I was extremely impressed with his honesty, care, and knowledge of the business, and am really looking forward to working with him for all my jewelry needs in the future!
