I have had several experiences with Colonial. First had a signet ring enlarged, it was competently done and they charged about $100 plus the value of the additional gold. So not unreasonable that time.

Then went in with my finacee and mother's wedding ring to have to have it resized from 7 to 4.5 which is admitted a large jump, it is also has a three bands which a little more complicated. They looked at it with a loope and said there were a lot of cracks in it. They wanted $2300 to resize it! They I asked about a new setting for the diamonds and they want $2400! Then asked them to bid on my deceased father's diamond ring and they wouldn't even look at it for melt value.

Well I just got the ring resized in Ecuador for $45! They did a lovely job and its held up fine. They also said there were no cracks in it. Bottom line: Colonial saw a middle aged man with a wedding ring and tried to punk him and made up a cock and bull story to justify it. Totally unethical. Now I wonder if I would have even gotten the right stones back. Avoid like the plague.

I love that we have a local jeweler, and that it's a family business. Their prices seem pretty high ($110 to resize a ring to a smaller size!), but their customer dedication is unbeatable. I love that Gwen sent us handwritten notes after our visits there, and she remembered details of our conversation from the previous visit every time.

I have been extremely impressed with Colonial since the beginning! The ring that my husband gave me for our engagement was stunning. They cleaned and resized it for me and returned it sparkling very quickly. When my husband and I went to select our wedding bands we had to come back to Colonial. Nancy there was very helpful, easy to work with, and kept checking in with us while we waited for our order. Since the wedding, they still invite us to their in store events. It is a great place!

We got our engagement rings and wedding bands from Colonial Jewelers. We entered into this process with some nervousness since jewelry purchasing was so far out of our comfort zone. The jeweler was so focused on us while we were there and taught us about the many important options to consider while making this purchase. She took the time and interest to match our preferences and our personality with our jewelry. We left feeling like experts and were confident with our decisions. She did such a wonderful job and we couldn't be happier with our selections. We will certainly go back to Colonial Jewelers in the future!

I have to admit, I am partial to Colonial. My husband and I went to high school with Sarah so we only give our business to them. We always get great service and the jewelry we purchase is always top notch.

As a family owned company for over 60 years, we received superb service for choosing and purchasing our rings! My fiance and I went once to look at engagement rings together and I gave him an idea as to what I liked. But, he then purchased my engagement ring without my presence. Patty was so helpful to him and truly worked to get him a ring that was within our budget. We then went in together to review and purchase our wedding bands. Again, Patty was so patient with us and made us feel special in our purchases. Also, the wedding band that was a match to my engagement ring was designed to be round (to encompass the engagement ring when worn together). This was not the style that I wanted, so Patty worked with the manufacturer to create a wedding band that was straight. I love it and it's gorgeous!! We highly recommend Colonial Jewelers for any of your jewelry purchases and especially for your engagement ring and wedding band purchases!! (only downside is they are a little more expensive than other jewelers, but for the quality and care of service it was worth it for us to use them!)

Colonial Jewelers is the best! Per my husband's request, they helped me pick out some beautiful engagement rings that fit my fingers for him to select from. I was so impressed with their service that we bought both of our wedding bands from them. The entire staff was incredibly attentive to our needs and budget. We will be purchasing our jewelry from them for years to come. There is something to be said about a tried and true small town jeweler.

We purchased our custom designed wedding rings at Colonial Jewelers (and my fiance purchased my engagement ring there, too). We worked with Emily and she was fantastic. Colonial is definitely one of the best jewelers in the area. Their customer service is great and the quality of the jewelry is top notch. Save yourself time and just go to Colonial Jewelers. Their excellent reputation is much deserved!

After MUCH searching, we finally found the perfect band for my husband at Colonial Jewelers. All the staff was extremely helpful and courteous and obviously knowledgeable. They wouldn't let us leave discouraged; they searched and searched and custom ordered the perfect wedding band for my husband. I didn't purchase either of my rings there, but Colonial Jewelers would always clean my ring for me while I was ordering and picking up my husband's band. The only disappointment was that one staff member accidentally told my husband what I had had engraved on the inside, but that is such a minor incident in the grand scheme of things that I don't even care.

I cannot recommend Colonial Jewelers enough. My husband and I always had such a good time when we were in this store. We purchased my engagement ring, our wedding bands, earrings for the wedding day and a pocket watch for my husband. The entire staff is great to work with � especially Amber! We will definitely be back, as my husband refers to Colonial as �our jewelry store.�
