DESCENZA DIAMONDS' success lies in our commitment to educate the buyer on what they are looking at so that they may appreciate their fine jewelry, and offering high-quality jewelry and other luxury items at a savings of 25 to 40 percent. Buying diamonds and gems direct and crafting much of our jewelry in the store, enables us to keep our prices remarkably low without sacrificing quality.

It was a concept that Alfred F. DeScenza originated in downtown Boston in 1915 and successive generations have been expanding upon ever since. Our tradition of quality and service at outstanding savings is thriving today, with branch stores located in FRAMINGHAM, HINGHAM, and PEABODY Massachusetts. Among our 120 employees are the founder's son, Fred DeScenza and son-in-law, Hugh MacIsaac, 10 of their children and five fourth generation spread throughout the four stores.

Don't let the name DESCENZA DIAMONDS fool you, we do not only have diamonds. We carry fine jewelry from a sterling and pearl bracelet for your flowergirl to a diamond necklace for the bride with savings up to 40% off retail prices. Come in and allow us to help you select gifts for all the people who have helped and supported you in your wedding planning. From jewelry and keychains to unique gifts in aluminumware and pottery - we have something for your attendants.

Brides and grooms plan on spending an hour or two with our Bridal Registry consultants and select items that you would love to have in your home knowing that your guests will save 15-25% on giftware and the gift they selected from your personal registry will arrive beautifully wrapped and safely shipped to your home.

We look forward to you coming in to one of our stores and learning some of the many interesting facets and, like the many generations of customers who have come to trust us over the past 96 years, will become part of our strong tradition. Read less

Gail worked with my fiance to design the most beautiful (and perfect) engagement ring, so we contacted her immediately after to help us with the wedding bands. Gail was a pleasure to work with, very responsive and helpful. The stores are lovely if you can stop in and browse around and the customer service was excellent.

Great place to shop for wedding/engagement rings! All of the staff are friendly and helpful and the store isn't too intimidating (I mean, it is a high-end jewelry store downtown). Very satisfied with my engagement rings and both our wedding bands.

I LOVE Descenza. My grandfather passed away when I was younger. He lived in downtown Boston, and we used to spend out summers there with him. One of my favorite memories was always when we took trips to Descenza. He got all of his girls jewelry from there, so it held a very special place in my heart. Being that I lived in the South, my now husband did not know what Descenza was, but knew how sentimental it was to me, and that when we were someday engaged, I'd love for my ring to come from there. He traveled secretly from Texas to Boston to get my ring. Descenza worked with him over the phone and via email, and made the whole process very easy for him. He told me how wonderful the staff was to work with, and was very impressed by the amazing quality at such a reasonable price (I, of course, knew that of Descenza)! We are now married, and will soon travel back to Boston to get another diamond band :) We will forever be Descenza customers, no matter how far we have to travel!

Francesca at the Framingham store is an absolutely pleasure to work with! She has helped us tremendously through the wedding band processes as well as all of our other jewelry buying adventures within the last year and a half. She helped with everything from bands to gifts for parents and to me from my husband! Just a complete joy and we always ask for her specifically by name when we go in.

We bought our wedding bands at Descenza in Framingham after looking at about 5 other jewelers and being completely disappointed. My husband bought my engagement ring at the same store and loved it there and we went in 2 times to look at wedding bands before we made any decisions; we never felt pressured, everything was always fully explained, and everyone was very helpful. I HIGHLY recommend purchasing from them.

We bought our bands from Descenza in Hingham and I was thrilled with their selection, service and price. We worked with Brett who sepnt time with us and showed us a variety of bands that would work with my setting. In addition, he gave us several options for different metals and priced my ring out with different amounts of diamond 7, 9, and 11. He also introduced us to a new metal called Paladium which we ended up purchasing for my husbands band. This store is truly a reflection of a family owned/operated business.

We went to the Hingham location to get our wedding bands and could not have been happier. Not surprisingly, we left things til the last moment but Karen managed to move heaven and earth and get us our bands in time for the wedding. The amazing speed with which she was able to get our rings should not, however, overshadow how stunning they were. My husband and I have never been "ring" people - our college rings sit untouched in drawers. But our wedding bands are so beautiful we can't stop looking at them! Karen knew just what we wanted, managed to get them in record time, and the price was fabulous. After this amazing experience, now we only wish we'd gotten the engagement ring there!!
