Highly reccomended, they are the sweetest family. They made my engagement ring and fixed up my wedding band to match my engagement ring (I used my mother's so it needed sizing and a change from platinum to rose gold.) Very fair and will make sure you get exactly what you want! They might even offer you a whole lot of Japanese candy.....

When you start talking about jewelry and where to go, people always say to go to Downtown LA's jewelry mart. You go there and you don't know where exactly to go or where to start since it's spread out in different buildings and floors. Well, I have to say this is the place to go. They were a recommendation to me, and I in turn recommended them to other couples as well. You look around at other vendors in the area and they are not nearly as busy as these guys are. They know their stuff, they have a full staff ready to help, they have a variety to choose from, and their prices are reasonable. Plus they are the official jeweler for Miss California. If they are good enough for them, they are good enough for me! Definitely worth checking out.

I've been thinking about getting engaged, so I decided to start doing some research about diamond and engagement ring sellers. Of course, the downtown la jewelry district seemed to be the logical place to go. After visiting a few retailers that were pricy and very business-like, I found Steve at Intagems. I felt immediately welcome in his store. There was no pressure to buy, it just seemed like he genuinely wanted to educate me about diamonds and make sure I got the best deal. He was great. Very friendly and accommodating. Because of that, I'm bringing my girlfriend into the store next week to choose a ring.

After reading yelp reviews, I headed straight to Inta Gems when I decided to get an engagement ring for my now wife. I didn't have to go to any other BM store. Within an hour, I found the perfect ring for her at a great value. Now when I'm out with my wife, she constantly gets compliments on it, as me as well, "nice job" the ladies say. They are really nice and helpful over at Inta Gems, and have a great selection of custom designs. The ring I got was designed by Peter of Inta Gems, and is super unique. We did hit a few bumps along the way, when the ring was resized a couple of diamonds were burnt, so they appeared sunken into the setting. When I brought it in, they couldn't really see what I was talking about and they thought it was dirty. So it was a tad exhausting having to convince your jeweler that there's something wrong with the ring. But they did replace it for us, and I had it back in no time. Overall, nice people, great unique designs, and great value. If I ever have a buddy that needs help finding an engagement ring, the first place I'd bring him is Inta.

My wonderful husband bought a beautiful engagement ring from INTA Gems in Downtown LA with the help of Connie. When I had to get the ring slightly resized they did so with a smile. We also went and bought our wedding bands at INTA. The entire staff was so helpful and greeted us warmly. We quickly found both of our bands and bought them on the spot, and they gave us very good prices! A trip to Phillippe's French Dip made the day perfect!

My ring turns heads and I've got Inta Gems to thank for that.

When my fiance proposed, my stone was set in a basic Tiffany setting because he wanted me to pick the setting of my choice. After scouring Yelp's top hits in LA's Jewelry District, I realized that 1) most settings looked the same and 2) settings for my size stone were very limited.

I had the unfortunate luck (said with a playful wink) of having a princess cut stone that was too big (thank you honey) for nearly every setting we saw. Most dealers, upon seeing that they could not make an instant sale with us, were reluctant to work on a custom setting with a hard stop due date. Having recently gotten engaged, we needed to have my ring ready within 2 weeks for our engagement party. Every top vendor we spoke to said it was impossible--that is until we ran into Jerry and the folks at Inta Gems.

The moment I looked down at the display case, my eyes made a beeline to one ring. It did not look like anything that exciting, but I knew that with a little merchandising, it could be something truly fabulous. Without hesitating, they said they could deliver. With time closing in, that was enough for us to hunker down with Jerry to create a masterpiece using a basic 4-prong setting. To ensure that my "floating" diamond ring could be created, he called in for backup from the diamond setters upstairs and got the okay.

Thirteen days later, I got the call we'd been waiting for. My ring was done and seeing it literally left me breathless. Inta Gem's dedicated team brilliantly executed my vision based on simple sketches. Saying they met my expectations is an understatement. They delivered a ring that was even more magnificent than I ever hoped for -- and with an extra day to spare to fawn over it some more.

My girlfriend and I went ring shopping together to every place you could imagine. Suburban boutiques and jewelry stores felt comfortable, but were pricey. The diamond district has cheaper price, but we were very skeptical of who we could trust down there. Then we found INTA Gems in the diamond district. Absolute home run from the start. Boutique service is provided by a highly trustworthy and accommodating staff. Yet their wholesaler status and size allows them to still offer the BEST prices. Steve Pheng was the guy we worked with; and he provided top-notch timely service throughout the whole process. Seriously, INTA Gems is the only choice!

I had such a fabulous experience with Inta Gems. I wanted my wedding band to be an exact replica of my fiance's father's wedding band, which he was now passing down to my fiance The ring was a really beautiful band from Iran that was made by traditional Persian jewelery makers. It is white gold with an intricate patterned design around both edges of the band. Inta hand-made a beyond perfect replica of the wedding band, and also had it engraved inside with me and my fiance's names. The complex design was exquisitely done. I was so, so happy when I opened the box and saw that it was perfect! Inta has fabulous service, totally accommodated me and rushed my order (I was terribly late in deciding to do this) and had it safely delivered in the mail to me well beyond the date I needed it. I highly trust and recommend Inta to all!

Short Version: Beautiful merchandise, supreme service.

Long Version: I just came back for my second purchase in two years, and the experience here was just as great as it was before, if not better! I came in with a very specific request and they didn't have an exact match for what I wanted. It didn't matter; they immediately sent one of their employees out and came back within minutes with exactly what I was looking for, which I though would be impossible. They then had the jewelry put into settings and I was out the door in an hour. An hour! And, with a very fair price. Plus, while I was waiting, they gave me tasty cookies and candy treats. Seriously, where else can you have an experience like this? I highly recommend Inta Gems, Diamonds & Jewelry. Check'em out!

I went to Inta Gems on the recommendation of a couple of friends of mine who had been helped by Peter. After a day of getting the run around and hearing the phrase "You really should put a couple thousand more into this to get what you really want", I finally went and spoke with him. Peter was the best. He assured me that I could get exactly what I wanted for my bride-to-be without compromise for the exact amount of money that I wanted to spend. He really made everything happen for me, and my fianc couldn't be happier with the ring she got. A few months later, we went back to get our wedding bands from him, on a limited budget of course. Once again, he never hesitated to get us exactly what we wanted at a great price. I'm really big on customer service. This place is one of the best I've ever been to, for sure. If you're in the market for this, then do yourself a favor and talk to them. They'll absolutely take great care of all your needs!

INTA Gems was actually the 2nd jeweler I dealt with during my long drawn out process in obtaining my engagement ring. I actually bought the diamond through my first jeweler. I wanted a custom band and setting and I had provided the 1st jeweler with specific pictures and their craftsmanship was beyond horrible. On top of that the first band he showed me was not remotely close to the pictures I provided and I ended up finding out that it was one of their model bands. I looked at the setting and it was crooked. I made him look at it and he finally agreed that it was crooked. I didn't want to do business with this vendor anymore. I felt he gave me a good deal on the diamond, but I didn't like his business style and what he tried to pull on me with the band. I took my business elsewhere. Fast forward like a month I found INTA Gems on the Internet through a random web search. I always knew about the Downtown LA Jewelry District, but was apprehensive about shopping for a ring there because I didn't know anything about jewelry and there are so many vendors down I wasn't sure who to visit. I didn't want to be ripped off since I was clueless about jewelry. I met Peter down at the shop and he was extremely nice. It's funny because he thought I was some he knew before, but in fact this was our first time meeting. I showed him pictures of the band and we talked about the positives and negatives. We spent at least an hour talking about the ring and I got to know more about his personal life. He's so personable and made me comfortable at the store. It was like having shooting the breeze with friends. His parents are super nice as well. We ended up getting the band from him and they set the diamond for me and we also ended up getting both our wedding bands there too. All in all great prices for your value and incredible customer service. Stop on in because they treat everyone like family. Thank you very much for the great bling!

Intagems is GREAT! They are excellent to work with and are no pressure at all! From the first day I was there to pick out a ring I was treated like family. They really helped find the perfect ring. Intagems is a family run business which is wonderful to work with. Since my initial purchase we have been back many times and are always welcomed with smiling faces. This is by far the best place to go in Los Angeles hands down, and we'll never go anywhere else!

INTA Gems and Diamonds is hands down the best place to buy engagement and wedding rings in LA. They really do have it all: access to a huge selection of unique, quality jewelry, incredibly friendly and knowledgeable service, an easy-going sales style, and the best prices in LA. THEY HELPED ME PICK THE PERFECT ENGAGEMENT/WEDDING RINGS IN 5 MINUTES!!! I know it is not that quick for everyone, but they had exactly what I wanted for a price well within my budget. The Young family makes a habit of treating their customers like family. Bottom line...you can't walk away from Inta Gems without having a much better understanding of the jewelry your looking for, the market, and a great feeling knowing you did business with great people and spent bottom dollar. My wife wears a very unique cushion cut set in a micro-pave ring with a matching band, and I cannot tell you how many women have commented on how much they liked her rings. In fact, we had a friend tell us the other day that he liked her ring better than the one he bought his own wife. INTA Gems is amazing! I wouldn't go anywhere else.

It's been 10 months since my now husband got down on one knee, asked me to marry him and gave me the most BEAUTIFUL engagement ring ever! I still stare at it like it's the first day and it still sparkles that way too. Peter, Steve, Connie and everyone at INTA Gems were so helpful in the process of choosing and buying our wedding jewelry. They patiently taught us all about diamonds, gemstones and different metals so that we could make an informed decision about what to purchase. From the first time we met, they treated us like family - offering water, candy and even lunch!(I especially love those lychee gummies they give out, yum!) They didn't push the sale or pressure us to make a decision quickly, but let us take our time and ask all our questions. Based on what they taught me, I was able to give my husband an idea of what I wanted and let him do the rest. I knew he would find the perfect ring and I trusted that he would receive good advice from everyone at INTA Gems. From the way they do business, it's clear that they are honest people who want their customers to leave happy and satisfied. The diamonds on my ring go 3/4 around, so sizing it was a little difficult, but they patiently explained a variety of options to us and worked hard to make sure it fit just right... all without charging an extra penny! We bought my husband's wedding band there too and were impressed with their selection of men's rings. He found one that suits him perfectly at a very affordable price. We could not be happier with our experience at INTA Gems and Diamonds. They have a great selection of top-quality merchandise, their prices are very competitive, and they are kindhearted and trustworthy businesspeople. I have referred many of my friends to them and I know that I'll never shop anywhere else for diamonds, gemstones and fine-quality jewelry.

Like most guys, I was pretty apprehensive about trying to pick out a ring for my girlfriend (now wife). I loved her dearly (and still do of course) and wanted to give her the perfect ring, but given that I have the aesthetic sensibilities of a baboon, I didn't have much confidence in myself. INTA Gems made the experience simple, fun, and painless. They guided me through the process, explained everything clearly, and went out of their way to select a range of options tailored to our tastes and needs. I also appreciated the fact that I never felt pressured - they wanted me to find the right ring, and not to feel rushed. I only wish it were half as easy buying a car or house (or even bar soap). My girlfriend absolutely loved the ring, and I have to give most of the credit to INTA Gems, since I'm fairly confident that her reaction would not have been quite so enthusiastic if I'd relied on less expert and honest help. You'll probably only get one shot at getting this right, so I'd definitely recommend going with someone you trust. Whether you're someone who knows a lot about diamond rings or is generally clueless like me, I can't think of a better place to go than INTA Gems. Highly, highly recommended!

Before I got married in April, I gave Peter an idea of the type of engagement ring band I was looking for. I wanted something simple, elegant that modestly incased the center diamond. Basically, something you would find at Tiffany's. Peter designed my ring and I could not have been more thrilled when my husband got down on one knee and presented it to me! Peter knew I was looking for something less traditional so he helped my husband pick out a gorgeous 2.2 cushion cut. The diamond was way more than I could have wished for -- but overall, I couldn't be happier since good cushion cut diamond are hard to find and my wedding ring is the most important thing I own. I continue to receive many compliments on the design from admirers. If you're looking for a customized ring -- you will not go wrong at INTA Gems. The staff has exceptionally high standards and will offer you the best service.

I'm the maid of honor for my sister who just recently got engaged. I went with her fiance to buy her engagement ring at Inta Gems and it was magnificent! Not only were the staff friendly, but they gave us a step by step educational breakdown of the four Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat weight). The staff was super friendly. They even gave out tasty candy treats and water! And my sister's fiance had a set budget, so they were able to work within his budget. Here's how the process works: 1. They started off showing us the various loose certified diamonds. All of their loose stones were high-quality. We just told them the shape, carat weight, and budget. They pulled out a few diamonds and gave us a one by one breakdown of each one. We also got to see firsthand what a diamond looks like under magnification to view the clarity and color. One of the gemologists, Steve, explained that it was extremely important to make sure you get a certified diamond because it lists all the imformation of the diamond. 2. Next, after we chose the perfect diamond, we looked through the settings. There was an enormous selection of engagement settings! They had traditional solitaires, three stone rings, and other antique-looking rings. 3. Last, after choosing the proper diamond and ring setting, the process to make a complete ring only took an hour and a half! They also resized the ring. All in all, the experience was very educational. They taught me and my sister's fiance the fundamentals of diamonds, metal types for rings, etc. My sister's ring was a GIA certified, D color, and SI2 clarity round brilliant cut diamond weighing 1.25 ct. She had it set in a platinum setting with small round and princess diamonds on the sides. Accompanied with the ring and GIA certificate was an appraisal signed by their company's gemologist, Steve. He explained that the appraisal should be used for insurance purposes. The end result was terrific! I love her ring! It sparkles at every angle! And she is extremely ecstatic about it. Inta Gems is a great find within Los Angeles' Jewelry District. Not only did they have high quality jewelry, but their prices were a lot lower than jewelry stores at the mall. My sister's fiance and I looked at jewelry retail stores like Robbins Brothers, Zales, and Kay Jewelers, but I felt the diamonds and engagment rings at Inta Gems were of better quality. It didn't look mass-produced. I'm sure everyone else who goes to Inta Gems will have a great experience too. Even if you don't buy anything right away, you'll leave with a head full of knowledge.

By the time I found Inta Gems, I had already been through many jewelry stores and was rather discouraged with the experiences thus far. Pushy, insincere sales staff who cared very little about selling me quality jewelry and more about what commission they might make is the norm. Very disheartening. After some careful research, I made several appointments with vendors in the Los Angeles jewelry district. My first stop was Inta Gems, and after meeting and talking with Peter Young for just a few minutes, I knew I needn't go any further. He was everything that all the others were not. I felt comfortable right away, and he did not try to sell me on anything. We discussed the 4 Cs in great detail and he showed me side by side comparisons of exactly what we were talking about. He also gave me HONEST recommendations based on my budget and desires, even though it may have meant a smaller sale. In the end, I got exactly what I was looking for and I felt great about it. They mounted and sized the ring in under an hour and included an appraisal. Not only did I purchase the engagement ring there, I also purchased the wedding bands (which were customized), diamond stud earrings, and rented a 20ct diamond necklace and a pair of large sapphire and diamond earrings for the wedding. My wife was dripping in diamonds and could not have been happier thanks to Peter and the Inta Gems staff. I would recommend Inta Gems without reservation to anyone looking to purchase jewelry. You will not be leave disappointed.

I don't really know anything about jewelry. Well, I didn't until I spent some time with Peter at INTA Gems. I must admit that I started out pretty intimidated about the process, but Peter totally put me at ease and delivered just what I needed. I had an idea about the style that my girlfriend (now wife) wanted, but no idea about quality, size, price, etc. In Peter, I found someone who was an expert, but also honest, patient, and helpful. He worked with me to design the perfect ring for us. He was cognizant of my budget and didn't try to oversell me, but rather worked with me to identify what was most important to us and to spend budget wisely. He took the time to educate me so that I could make confident decisions. When it comes to a purchase as big as this one, I think the most important thing is to find someone you can trust. I wholehearted back Peter, Steve, and the staff at INTA Gems. Thank you so much! Warren

My husband purchased my engagement ring there and so it was natural that we would return to purchase our wedding rings there. I had a conversation with Peter over the phone of what I wanted. When we arrived, he had selected three options for me based on my thoughts. They were all a perfect match. It was such an easy process for me. Everyone was so nice and considerate and genuinely excited for our pending marriage. Because we had had such a great experience there, we also purchased our attendant gifts there. Again, they were nothing but accommodating and such a pleasure to work with. Our experience was so positive that we have gone back a couple of times to purchase a few other pieces. I would highly recommend them.

Looking for an engagement ring is stress enough if you're looking for something specific. After visiting every jewelry store in South Coast Plaza (to get an idea of what I wanted), I ventured out to the jewelry district in downtown LA. We met many a merchant eager to sell us something we didn't actually want, were escorted up to private offices and shown stones that in our opinion were quite inferior in quality than we (my fiance and I) were looking for. Steve at INTA Gems was just amazing, no joke. There's no pressure in the sale, the family owned business is all about helping you find what YOU want. Steve was patient and helpful and found us the perfect stone we were endlessly searching for. We got a great deal and 2 yrs later I am still happy as ever about it. My husband also bought me a beautiful diamond pendant and gorgeous earrings from Steve that truly outshine the rest. If you're looking for gemstones of any kind or a great diamond, you have to check out INTA Gems.

If you are looking for a place to get an engagement ring or wedding bands, INTA Gems & Diamonds is most definitely the place to go. I got my engagement ring from them a few years ago and they destroyed the price of Robbins Bros (the first place I looked). My wife loved the ring and we got our wedding bands from them as well. The first thing you notice from INTA is their service. I have not met a more nicer family than the Pheng family. They treat you like family, and they're always so happy, friendly, and helpful. I recommended all my friends to INTA and I have even recommended them to complete strangers. So in summary, best price + best customer service = best place to get your rings!
