Treasure for a Lifetime

Diane Chamlin 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,...

“Extraordinary Experience”

John Johnson 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...

“Blown Away”

Tim Fisher 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...

“Extremely Impressed”

Doug Willig 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!...

“Nothing Short of Extraordinary”

Paul Stanton   Yuval and his team provided a customer service experience that was overwhelmingly supportive, and so uncommon even in comparison to other luxury, bespoke services I’ve experienced. He takes such pride in his trade, which extends to the education he bestows upon his clients in helping them understand the value in a diamond. I was completely confident he understood and was working in my best interests when choosing an engagement ring, and the final result was nothing short of extraordinary. I feel blessed to have been introduced, he certainly has a client for life....
