Went to Hands after an unfortunate home ring-cleaning incident resulted in a lost stone on a family piece. I know relatively little about diamonds or jewelry repair, but the folks at Hands were kind, educational, and transparent with me throughout the entire process. Within 2 weeks my ring was repaired with a new stone, all within a college student's budget. Can't thank them enough!
My husband and I bought my engagement ring and wedding band here, and they also took an old ring of mine that I never wore and redesigned it into a daily piece. We had an incredible experience here every time. They understood our price range and didn't try to push us higher than we were comfortable with. My husband knew I wanted a lab diamond, and they didn't even question that choice or try to convince him otherwise - they helped him find the perfect one. They did a custom wedding band for me using small family diamonds and it was incredibly meaningful and affordable. The staff and owners are so nice when you stop in and want to help you find the perfect thing within your budget. Cannot recommend them enough!

Could not have asked for a better experience. Linda at Hands helped us make a custom engagement ring from a family diamond, and wedding bands. She helped walk us through every step and made everything smooth. She went above and beyond at every step to make things go perfect. She was very friendly and always excited to see us even after hours to accommodate our schedule. I would highly recommended trusting Hands with any of your needs!!
My experiences here have been wonderful. They have helped me with custom engraving for my sons’ medals as well as personal gifts. The employees are quick to remember names and preferences and are always kind and welcoming. I’m glad to recommend Hands to anyone looking for quality service and gifts.
Claire at Hands helped make the most beautiful, custom birthstone ring for mother. From start to finish, their customer service and variety of products were top notch!
