Hey Steve, I just wanted to reach out to let you know how well I was treated by Troy and how happy I am for getting my engagement ring at GDS. Troy was very professional and made the whole process so simple and even fun. He gave me a great deal and helped me find the absolutely perfect diamond and engagement ring. The best part about the whole experience was that when we had a couple of challenges with the ring size he went above and beyond to make sure everything was just perfect and my girl and I surely appreciate that. She loves the ring! You have a true asset in Troy and you should be proud to be his father and boss. Thanks again! testimonials

Best, Imran Rahman

Hello Lynn,
I can't thank you enough for fixing my beautiful diamond. I was so heart broken when I discovered the lost stone – the cost for shipping both ways, replacement of the diamond and repair of the ring at no cost to me is incredible generous. I really can say with 100% certainty you do stand behind what you sell! That being said I will be back to trade up on something just a little different! So keep me in mind and again a big thank you to everyone involved in making this happen and with such speed, honesty and integrity. testimonials

Hi Julie,
I waited a long time to find the special person in my life. It felt like an even longer time to pick out the right ring! ;-) Your staff at G&DS was patient, knowledgeable, kind, understanding, and outright amazing. I went to several jewelers in the entire Bay Area0 (Tampa, St Pete, Brandon, Clearwater, Wesley Chapel), and none could match the customer service in your store. Erik and Ray were fantastic. They showed me just about every diamond that you had and explained all of the differences in each stone as if they were buying it for themselves or a family member of their own. Well, my girl said "yes" this weekend, and she loves her ring. We will be in on Saturday to get it sized. I'd like to take the chance to say "thank you" to you and Steve if you are around. Thanks again for playing a part in making my dreams come true. testimonials

I would like to take the time to thank you for your recent purchase of a part of my coin collection. I am a single father of a nine year old little girl and recently laid off from my job. Your honesty and fairness in these tough economic times really goes a long way in providing new school clothing for my daughter, paying some bills, and a little to save on the side means a lot as the unemployment checks won’t go very far. I would like to request yet another gold kit and look forward to doing business with yourself & AJ again.Many thanks. testimonials

I wanted to say THANK YOU! I recently sent in my old gold and jewelry and just received a check for much more than I expected! I went to another jewelry store south of Tampa a few months back and they offered me considerably less. This could not have come at a better time. So, thank you so much and I will definitely recommend your business to all of my friends. Have a great day! testimonials

Dear Steve & Julie,
Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the assistance of two of your employees and that they went above and beyond to please us.

Ray Potesta helped my husband select a diamond ring for our 38th anniversary but it was not exactly what I wanted. I asked to make some changes several times and Ray was more than cooperative. It didn’t work out as I hoped as they could not get the band that I truly wanted. We decided to upgrade a little and again Ray was great.

Also, Steve, your jeweler, was very helpful in assisting me as to the type of ring I wanted and making the several changes to the rings. This was truly an important purchase for us and they helped make it right.

We would not hesitate to return to your establishment for future purchases and also to recommend you to our friends and family. Thank Ray and Steve once again! testimonials

Mr & Mrs Weintraub,
I can’t articulate just how grateful I am; the wedding band and engagement rings for my Wife are perfect. Special thanks to you two as I couldn’t have afforded them without you. I wanted to get her something special and beautiful, but everything I saw here in Texas didn’t cut it and you have such a great selection and let’s just say that I don’t have a lot of “free time” being in the military. So again, a thousand thanks. In a way you’ve helped facilitate a “dream come true” and for that my fiancee and myself will forever be grateful. testimonials

I went into my local jewelry store in the countryside area & asked if they buy gold. The jeweler offered me $150. I went to the Gold and Diamond Source and they wrote me a check, on the spot, for $480! testimonials

Mr. Weintraub,
On January 2, 2010, I set out to purchase an engagement ring for my girlfriend. With all the horror stories I’ve heard from friends and family about the not so reputable jewelers, I wasn’t thrilled about the day ahead of me. With a few stops at the chain stores and one at the “going out of business 70% off gimmick” I found myself feeling mentally and emotionally drained. By exhausting the chain brands I thought I’d give the family owned stores a chance. Remembering the commercial I had seen the on TV many times I decided to head over the bridge and give you guys a chance. WOW. I was completely taken back when I entered. Yupah Oh Boonchaliew was my sales associate. Yupah was like an angel; she was very patient, knowledgeable and was very pleasant to deal with. Basically, I didn’t feel like I was buying a used car. I just wanted to say thank you. My experience at your store with your employees was simply delightful. The ring was perfect and my now fiance loves it! I’m officially a costumer for life.Thanks again, testimonials

I saw an advertisement on TV with the Weintraub’s and decided to gather my gold jewelry & rings that I didn’t even wear anymore. I could not believe what the value of my collection was worth. I was thrilled when they told me I had over $4,000 to spend! It made it possible for me to purchase the wedding ring of my DREAMS!!! Thank you Julie & Steve for giving me that opportunity. Plus, the salespeople were extraordinary and made me feel so welcome and like I was part of the family.  testimonials

I was introduced to the Gold and Diamond Source when I saw a bracelet on a friend and couldn’t rest till I found out where she’d gotten it. From the moment I walked in I was treated like they’d known me forever and now I can’t imagine shopping anywhere else. Their selection and quality is unmatched and their prices are phenomenal, BUT the attention to detail and service will be what keeps you coming back. Nearly every single day I get a compliment on one of my GDS pieces and I’m thrilled to recommend them to everyone I meet. testimonials

Our experiences at the Gold and Diamond Source have always been pleasant. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. From getting a custom piece made from their great jewelry maker to finding a piece right off the showroom floor, we have been very pleased with our purchases.

Just wanted to pass along some positive feedback. I went in on my lunch break and even though they were busy, I was done in less than 20 minutes. I’ve never sold any jewelry before, but the process was simple and the gentleman helping me was very friendly. Thanks! testimonials

Steve,
I can’t thank you and Julie enough for the great experience we had yesterday at your store! Marilyn was really happy and the way you both treated us was like we been friends for a long time. The experience was a great one. These are important moments for people and you have a sixth sense for how important they are. As my younger daughter Cara told me, “Dad, it was a direct hit”. Travel safe and we’ll see you soon. testimonials

Dear Julie,
My girlfriend went into GDS leery of selling jewelry. I assured her that she was safe taking her jewelry there. She met with Tiffany McGill and she treated her amazingly! She was kind and knowledgable. I am so proud to have a business like yours in our community. I will shop for future purchases and will recommend my sphere of influence to you and GDS. As a small business’s owner you and Steve have developed something that I hope to immunity by being highly successful and doing the right thing. Please consider Yellowfin Realty for any real estate needs. More importantly continue great things with great people in the Tampa community. testimonials

Thank you again,

My husband bought our wedding ring here 14 years ago while stationed in Hawaii. We decided its time for an upgrade. It was tough buying on line but Aj was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and knew exactly was I was looking for. I wasn’t happy with my first order but he made sure that I will be getting what I want. When I saw my new ring, I was almost in tears because it was so beautiful and perfect. G&D has the best price on line and their platinum rings are just top of the line quality. I cannot wait to buy from them again! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!. testimonials

My husband had bought me a diamond many years ago when you had a store in Bradenton. Since our 54th Anniversary is coming up we decided to see if we could afford the ring guard to go with the diamond. We made the trip up last Saturday, was assisted by Faith Wilson. Her service and attention to detail with what we were looking for was exceptional.My ring needed to be notched to accommodate the ring guard and was to be soldered together. When I went to pick up, it was completed when they said it would be, workmanship was impeccable. Just wanted you to know. In this society of sloppy work and lousy customer service, this was a most pleasant experience.. testimonials
