Testimonials



"Amanda could not have been happier with her pearls! I think she was pretty surprised and overwhelmed! You did an amazing job picking out and putting together the set. I have them to her last night after our baby was born and visitors left. Thanks again for helping me make a special memory".   Max H.   (U.S. Military)


"I can't say enough great things about working with Bruce. My fiancee and I went to him to design our wedding sets and my engagement ring. From finding the right stone, to walking us through the design process - concept, CAD drawings, molds, and the final product - he was the best person we could have ever partnered with. He has the expertise, the resources, and the experience for sure, but he also cares a great deal and it shows. He made what could have been a stressful or intimidating process into the most fun we could have had. If you want to design something new that is sure to become an heirloom, or if you need to re-imagine an heirloom you have inherited into something you love, Bruce is the one to work with. We love Bruce and I don't hesitate in giving him my highest recommendation.   Christine Stevens

 "Bruce, I cannot tell you how many compliments I get a day on the wonderful ringyour did for me. I was sitting on an airplane the other day and this man said to his wife“Honey – look at her gorgeous ring!” then he proceeded to say they were looking for wedding band similar to that for their upcoming wedding ceremony.  I gave him your website address – so he might be contracting you. I also have a colleague that was asking me for your information – he is hoping to do an anniversary band for his wife so he might be contacting you as well." K.K. Houston, TX.

"Serviced my wife's Baume and Marcia watch and serviced and repaired a 1950's era Longines mens watch.  Also tightened the settings on my wife's ring.... Bruce is a great guy, very knowledgable and friendly." C. RICHARDS  Houston, TX

 

"Bruce did an excellent job of repairing the ring.  The stone had become loose and I wanted to make sure that it was repaired correctly since it was a sentimental piece.  He went above and beyond to make sure that the  repairs were done properly.  I will use him for all my jewelry needs going forward.  Bruce is great to work with and provided options for me and helped make sure that I understand what he was going to do. The finished piece was stunning. Thank you Bruce." C. V. Z. DE JONG  Houston, TX 

 

 "Every once in a while you'll meet somebody you just like doing business with. Bruce is that kind of a person. I brought my wife's wedding ring in to get it repaired (prongs  replaced) and I was very impressed with the job Bruce did. It was excellent work. He was able to get it back to me the next day. He's also just a really nice guy. One can get very concerned leaving valuables with someone you don't know but after talking to him a few minutes I knew he was trustworthy and had a hunch he was good. He had such good reviews on Angie's List I decided to drive across town instead of going somewhere close to my house. He is by appt. only though so make sure to call before you go."  J. Carrico  Houston, TX. 

 

"Called Bruce on Wednesday wanting to make an appointment for an estimate for repair for my daughter's wedding ring. When we spoke, we mutually agreed on the date and time. When I arrived, I was expecting to leave the ring for repair, however a wonderful surprise awaited me! They were able to repair the ring on the spot. He also cleaned it and brought the sparkle back--when she put the ring back on her finger, she was THRILLED and extremely pleased. I'm so happy to have found this business, when I have a need for jewelry repair or design, I will definitely be returning! Excellence and top notch service, I recommend this business to anyone looking for a jeweler!"  V. Vallejo  Houston, TX 

 

"We wanted to use gems that we already had and have a custom ring designed based on my wife's style preference.  Bruce sat down with us, drew up sketches based on my wife's desires and really listened to what she wanted.  He worked with us a bit on the pricing and took his time to make sure we would be happy.  The result was great and my wife is still thrilled with her ring.  It was a great experience.  Having attempted the same process at other jewelers in the past, we will not go anywhere else for this type of work again." B. Hoyem  Houston, TX 

 

"From the very beginning, Mr. Snider and I had a very good conversation as he took the time to get to know me and some of the history with my grandfather's  Gents 'Election' 18kt wrist watch.  The turn-around from the time I dropped off the watch until the final report was delivered was exceptional.  The report itself was first-clasandefinitely met all the requirements that my insurance company had voiced. He provided duplicates of the report so that I could keep one copy and submit the second to the insurance agent.  Mr. Snider was very professional, personable and genuinely  passionate about his service. I would most definitely recommend his services for antique jewelry appraisals."I. Kalil  Sugar Land, TX

 

"I had a fantastic experience with this company.  I contacted Bruce to redesign a ring for me using my existing stones and metal. I contacted Bruce to redesign  some rings of mine into something new.  He spent quite a bit of time, was thoroughly professional in our initial meeting and really listened to my design ideas and what I was looking for in a finished ring.  He also thought of details necessary to the construction that I never would have thought of myself. He gave me a thorough itemized list of the total cost up front during our first meeting and was punctual in his timeline and the ring was ready in the exact time he estimated.  The finished product was even  better than I could have hoped for and the whole experience was smooth,  professional and fantastic. I will definitely tell my friends and family members  about this jeweler and will be happy to continue to do business with him in the future." K. Chilton  Houston, TX 

 

"Amazing jewelry designer. He was kind, responsive, creative, and very professional . We had a ring made for my daughter's 18th birthday. He listened very carefully to what she wanted and did not disappoint. The ring is even prettier than we hoped. He worked with us on price, so while not cheap, we believe we got great value for what we received. I highly recommend working with Bruce if you want custom made jewelry."C. Gannon  Houston, TX

 

"He  quickly and professionally got to work, separating out the items of lesser value, and then reviewed in detail the more valuable items.  He gave me a brief review  of her wedding band and will provide a written report on those items we think we will need for estate valuation/subsequent sale.  While he was cleaning my mother's ring, he offered to clean/check  my wedding ring as well.  I am very lucky he did so, as he found that 2 prongs were broken and I could have lost my engagement ring at anytime.   I have some personal items that need to be appraised and I will definitely return to see him in the near future."   N. Hicks  Houston, TX
