I went into Great American Jewelry on a busy chaotic Saturday during the Christmas season. I wanted to get a nice but relatively inexpensive gift. While the store was super busy, Laurie and her staff made us feel like we were the only customers in her store. She spent so ...She spent so much time and effort assisting us and giving us an honest opinion regardless of our budget. I highly recommend Great American Jewelry if you are looking for an honest, professional and knowledgable jeweler.Read More

This review is long overdue. My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jeanine. She helped us purchase an absolutely beautiful engagement ring of our dreams! She made us feel like family through the entire process. She was patient, and answered every question we had. Above all Jeanine ...is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. My husband and I would return without hesitation for any future jewelry purchases! Thank you soooo much Jeanine!Read More

Hands down the best jewelers we worked with!!! My husband got my engagement ring with these ladies and so naturally we stopped by as we were picking our wedding bands. We wanted to do our due diligence and shop around a bit, but the more we looked at other places ...the clearer it was that we would be going right back to Great American. Not only was their selection THE BEST (so many beautiful options it took me so long to make a decision!!), but the women here are extremely professional and helpful!! The service and expertise we received from them blows every other place we stopped at out of the water. THEY ARE THE BEST!!! I can’t say enough good things about Great American, you would be in such great hands with them... and of course I am just obsessed with my rings! These are one of the small parts of the wedding that is solely for you, so go somewhere that wouldn’t settle for anything less than perfect!!!Read More

This place is amazing, Larry came through for us. We came to Great American Jewelry with a very specific request and in Larry's words, he "moved a mountain for us so that my fiancé could propose on a mountain." We're so happy with their work. Debbie was also great in ...sizing the ring, I wanted it larger, she insisted I get the smaller size and she was right. Thanks!! Highly recommendRead More

I recently bought an engagement ring and couldn’t have asked for anything more...my now fiancé, absolutely loved it and couldn’t believe how beautiful the ring was. I highly recommend this store for all your jewelry needs, but even more for any special occasions. Larry and his team really listened to ...get me what I wanted and did not give up until I was satisfied.Read More

I went into this store because I was looking to find a relatively inexpensive gift for a friend. The only interaction I had previously had there was to bring in a watch for a new battery. I felt that I had been treated extremely nicely then for just the battery, ...so I had thought I would give them another try. I could not have been more pleased... I wanted something in sterling, inexpensive but yet, distinctive, not run-of-the mill.
The lady, who I believe is one of the owners, went extremely out of her way to help, continuing to show me different items in their selection, with extreme patience and no pressure. I certainly did not get the uncomfortable upsell you hear about in other stores. She seemed to be just as willing to help me with this as if I was there to select a large diamond ring. After going thru the choices I left with a great silver chain of an unusual link, that they polished up to glistening shimmer before I left, right on the spot. I could not have been more pleased. I gave it to the friend shortly afterward at dinner and she was so happy with it she put it on immediately. I was extremely impressed with the purchase and the way I was treated and would highly recommend them. I think that there are a lot of retail establishments that could learn customer relations from these people. My sincere appreciation,,, you helped put a smile on the face of a lady that has had a stressful time of a family loss, and made it affordable for me, and that was my intent. Much thanks.Read More

I brought my son in to Great American Jewelry to look for an engagement ring for his girlfriend. The service was incredible! Janet Graber is such an expert in diamonds! She took the time to explain about the grade, cut, and color of all the diamonds she showed us. We ...learned a lot! We did not need to look any further or in any other store. Janet sold my son the most perfect beautiful diamond and setting or his budget. My son got engaged last night and his fiancee was so thrilled with the ring she won't take it off! Thank you Great American Jewelry! Read More

The moment my future husband and I walked into Great American Jewelry we were greeted and treated like family. We had shopped around at other jewelry stores in the area but felt at home here. We hoped they would have something we liked because we both said that we want ...this to be our jewelry store for life, and sure enough they did! We have recommended this store to friends and they are excited to come in and have the same experience. The people who work here are true professionals and they give you a great sense of trust in them. Great American Jewelry will always be a happy memory from our wedding planning experience and we cannot wait to use them for years to come! Thank you!Read More

Don’t waste your time going anywhere else for your engagement ring! Jeanine was fantastic in every sense of the word. She really took the time to make sure that the ring was perfect, it far exceeded my expectations and my fiancé hasn’t stopped staring at her hand since I slid ...it on her finger! She’s great at explaining things every step of the way, is lightning quick at responding to emails, offers up her advice and vast wealth of knowledge (without being pushy or trying to steer you in a certain direction) and truly cares that the finished product comes out amazing and exactly the way you envisioned. She helped me get a custom-made setting by Gabriel and was happy to assist through the designing and tweaking until we finally got to the perfect setting. I really felt like I was dealing with a friend, not a salesperson, every step of the way and she’s got our business for the wedding bands as soon as we’re ready!!!Read More

I couldn’t be any happier with the service and finished product I received from Great American Jewelry. Don’t even think about going anywhere else, they’ll treat you like family and make sure that every question or need you have is attended to. Jeanine made this whole process of getting an ...engagement ring for my now fiancé both easy and fun, you can tell she truly cares about her customers and is dedicated to ensuring that your ring comes out better than you expected. She’s extremely knowledgeable and will help you every step of the way. I’ll be back for the bands when the time comes and this is now my jeweler for life!!!Read More

When my wedding rings needed to be resized I was hesitant on where to take them. The original jeweler is all the way in Chinatown so getting there is a hassle. I tried two local places on recommendations and they each gave me a different solution. I wanted to try ...a third so my father recommended Great American because he comes here to get his watches fixed all the time. Best. Decision. Ever.
I came in on a Sunday right after they opened. The woman who helped me (I feel terrible that I didn't get her name) was super friendly and explained everything to me. She knew exactly what she was talking about and addressed some of the issues I thought may happen with making the rings bigger. She took many notes and even complimented on how beautiful my engagement stone is. By the next day the rings were done and GORGEOUS! You would never ever know that they were made larger and they're as sparkly as the day I took them out of the box. Thank you so much everyone at Great American. I found a new go-to local jeweler.Read More

I was honored to receive my fiance's grandmother's ring as an engagement ring, and when his family gave me their blessing to reset the diamond, I was completely lost! I had never been to a jewelry store before, and was completely out of my element. From the moment I walked ...into Great American Jewelry, I felt at ease. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, and after looking at several options, I found the one. I never felt pressured, rushed, or embarrassed at my lack of ring knowledge. I highly recommend this store! (Plus, bonus points for their dog, Rusty, who is a sweetheart)Read More

To any guy out there who is in the market for an engagement ring, don't think and go to Great American Jewelers! My first time as you can imagine buying an engagement ring was nerve-racking, but with the help of Laurie and Larry and everyone else in the store, it ...was a very simple and clear process. Every step of the way was met with the upmost professionalism and I couldn't of asked for a better experience. The ring they crafted custom made almost brought my fiancé to tears when I proposed. Such beauty and elegance, I've gotten nothing but positive feedback about the ring. Thank you again Laurie and Larry for making our engagement dreams come true.Read More

I can't say enough about the wonderful staff at Great American Jewelry! I went there with a bunch of jewelry left to me from my mom who had recently passed. Maggie looked at all the pieces and gave me a ton of ideas about what to do with everything. She ...was so compassionate and understanding. My emotions were a little raw and she totally understood. She was able to turn some very sentimental pieces into works of art. She had my mom's nameplate necklace turned into a bracelet for me (mom's name was Faith so I can totally wear it!). She also joined my mom's link bracelet to mine. She sized some rings also. Most importantly I had mom's engagement and diamond wedding band. I wanted to have ring made out of them for myself. I wanted a vintage look but I am terrible about describing what I want. Maggie was so patient. She showed me pictures and made sketches for me. I gave he the go ahead to do what she thought best. Well, she blew me away! It is such a beautiful piece! She totally understood what I wanted!!! Now I have a ring that I can wear to remind me of my mom and dad. I cried when I saw it. Throughout the process Maggie was amazing. I also want to thank Debra, Laurie and Larry for all their help and for making this such a special experience. I will put some pictures in the comments. Thank you so much for all you have done!!!Read More
