DeScenza Diamonds is Boston's premier diamond source for Forevermark and GIA certified diamonds, engagement rings, wedding bands, diamond, gold and silver jewelry, watches and gifts! We proudly celebrated our 100th anniversary and are continuing the tradition of extraordinary quality, outstanding savings and exceptional customer service.

Al DeScenza began DeScenza Diamonds in 1915 on the 6th floor of the Diamond and Jewelers Building at 387 Washington Street in Boston, where we still flourish today. His reputation for honesty, integrity and customer service grew steadily, and as his children and grandchildren entered the business, DeScenza Diamonds was able to expand into Framingham, Peabody, and most recently, Hingham.

We carry a full line of designer jewelry and bridal settings from Sasha Primak, Sylvie, Jeff Cooper, Scott Kay, ArtCarved, Coast and Lieberfarb. We also have extensive collections of gold and silver jewelry from designers such as Fope, Charles Garnier and Alisa for your bridal party attendants; as well as gifts from artisans like Simon Pearce, Michael Aram, Mariposa and Vietri for your registry. Let DeScenza Diamonds help make all your celebrations sparkle!

One Family. Four Generations. One Hundred Years. Come See Why!

We purchased our wedding bands at Descenza. We had shopped at a few other shops in the Jeweler's buildings in Boston (including where we purchased the engagement ring), but Descenza had the best ring and it was a reasonable price. The woman who helped us was quite knowledgeable and made it a quick and smooth process. The overall service was exceptional. I even paid a little less than what I was quoted when I came to pick up the ring that was sent out to be sized as the price (of gold) had dropped $40.

The saleswoman Asia was very nice and was able to find a colorful stone that met our criteria, after 2 other stores weren't able to. Our engagement ring price was under the estimated quote. A couple weeks after we ordered my wedding band Asia called me to tell me that it was tax free weekend and asked if I wanted to pay for the ring in full to save on tax.

I’ve dealt with such nonsense from them. Completely ineffective over the phone (check out at Yelp reviews), and I’ve always had to be the one to call on any progress after radio silence for weeks. To add insult to injury, my engagement ring is missing a diamond before I even get married, and they could care less about fixing it.

The real kicker: it was just checked by DeScenzas, not more than two weeks ago! I’m not even wearing it. When your co-workers notice a diamond is missing in your fairly young engagement ring, it’s an embarrassment to you, and it’s an embarrassment to the schmuck who fell for buying it. Including the bands, we’ve sunk $5,700 into DeScenzas as a couple. My fiancé purchased the engagement ring in Boston, but the wedding bands are now in Framingham, and I’ve had terrible experiences at each store.

For my personal favorite, after my diamond disappeared, I called the Framingham location at 5:30 knowing they close at 6, asking if I should stay in traffic if I knew I would be a couple minutes past 6…Cathy from Framingham said “that’s fine.” I arrived at 6:10, and they refused to help me even after I showed them my engagement ring!! I made it clear that I was told it would be ok to be a few minutes late, and I received one of those “sorry” responses where you know the person thinks it’s your fault. Which it 100% would be if I hadn’t called, but that was the exact reason I had! I sat in traffic for an hour each way for nothing. And I have just 1 month until my wedding... which they also know and are unsympathetic to getting it done any faster.

This is supposed to be one of the most exciting parts about getting married, and it has been nothing but a headache mixed with frustration and disappointment.

DeScenza Diamonds responded with the following comments:

We feel so badly that your experience was so frustrating. We know the Rt 9 traffic can be a nightmare. Although we can wait a couple minutes past 6, our security company doesn't allow us to remain open a full 10 minutes past closing. We were happy your fiance was able to return the next morning to drop off your ring and pick up your bands. We hope we have been able to make things right for you, as we too want you to be happy as your wedding day approaches.

My husband chose to buy my engagement ring at DeScenza Diamonds in Peabody, MA based on reviews from friends. He spent a lot of time picking out the perfect setting and diamond. Chris was very patient and helpful. DeScenza’s was able to resize my ring, making it a full size smaller, without compromising the ring or removing any diamonds. My ring is perfect and exactly what I would have picked for myself. Because my husband had such a great experience at DeScenza Diamonds, we chose to buy our wedding bands there. Because my husband had purchased my engagement ring, we were able to get 10% off of our wedding bands. DeScenza’s has beautiful jewelry and an amazing selection. Michelle helped us to pick out wedding bands, and my wedding band matches my engagement ring perfectly. Everyone we worked with was professional and helpful. I would definitely recommend DeScenza Diamonds to anyone.

My fiancé purchased my engagement ring with Mike in the Danvers location and he couldn't have done a better job! Each employee we've encountered at DeScenza is extremely helpful!
