A great place to shop for jewelry

My husband and I are very happy with our new 20 year anniversary bands. Mel took the time to show us different designs and possibilities, anything was possible. We never felt rushed or pressured. We had Mel's full attention the whole morning. Since we are not living in NYC he made sure the rings were both done by the time we left. Amazing. I highly recommend this shop, I will go back for any future jewelry needs.

Mel is fantastic! My husband lost his 24 karat gold wedding band after 35 years of marriage and we couldn’t find anyone that could replace it. I found Mel online. He is easy to talk to, very professional, has an amazing understanding of jewelry, explains everything, and delivers exactly what you are expecting. I was a little nervous with the thought of a distance online purchase but with pictures, measurements etc. Mel took care of everything and we are 100% satisfied. Mel made the identical ring for my husband. He is straight forward and easy to understand. The price was also reasonable. Don’t hesitate if you are unsure. They deliver !

Awesome Experience, Perfect Ring

We traveled to NY from Colorado after being unable to find anything unique online and in the state of Colorado. Mel helped us to create the perfect rings. We saved tons of money and the rings we got are impeccable. With the same budget we had while looking for rings in Colorado we were not only able to get bigger and better rings/stones but also cover the cost of our trip to NY. No high pressure sales or tricks. We had a lot of fun and will be back. We highly recommend Wedding Ring Originals and Mel to anyone.

Mel is agenius! I brought him an old diamond ring that I no longer wore and he created for me the most beautiful earings. Love the idea that I am the only one who will be wearing the original design he made for me. His work is outstanding and he is a pleasure to work with.

Mel was so helpful in getting our ring custom ordered. I went all over looking for the right motorcycle tread design. Found the perfect tread design on weddingrings.com, but was worried about ordering online (as I am in Oregon). Was able to keep the tread design, but customed it exactly as I wanted (changed the metal, and the finish). The ring arrived yesterday and it's beautiful! It's PERFECT! Exactly what I wanted to show off my fiance's personality. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Would go back to Mel in a heart beat! He kept me in the loop everystep of the way!

Mel did a great job on my new wedding diamond band that had a black undertone. Everyone loves my new classic band and I have sent them to Mel. They truly have the best quality diamonds and extremely customer focused. I highly recommend them. Price is also fair and I trust them. Connie

I've been married for a year and a half and have loved wearing my gorgeous custom-made diamond wedding band every single minute. Mel and his team did a beautiful job with my ring and it's exactly what we had envisioned. Thank you!!!

So Many Compliments!!

My husband, then boyfriend of over 11 years, surprised the heck out of me with the most gorgeous engagement ring from Mel. I look at its beauty every day and receive compliments on it all the time - my stone is magnificent! My husband told me how Mel was so helpful in guiding him to just the perfect ring, not pushy not selling something out of his price range, just purely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. And I can vouch for that service myself as of course we went to Mel for our wedding bands - he created a perfect custom band for myself to compliment the engagement ring and guided us to a wonderful original titanium band for my husband. Many family and friends have been referred to Mel and they are all as equally happy with Mel's wealth of knowledge, magnificent skill with creating such beautiful jewelry, and fair pricing. WRO (Mel) is the best and our only jeweler!!

Awesome jeweler and experience

My fiance purchased my engagement ring from Mel and gave me the surprise of my life! He was in a rush to get it done and had some other specials requests and Mel was very accommodating. The ring is absolutely beautiful! The really wonderful part about our experience with Wedding Ring Originals was just this past weekend when we visited New York for a vacation. We thought it would be great to visit the store and try on some wedding bands. Mel is everything you would hope for when meeting the business owner and craftsman behind your wedding jewelry. He cleaned my engagement ring while we browsed. We ended up ordering our rings and we are so excited! Mel really takes the time to get to know you and what you're looking for. There are so many options for customization and he is patient while you wade through everything. We truly had an unforgettable experience and are certain that our custom wedding bands will exceed our expectations.

These rings are top notch. The sales people are knowledgeable (Mel is hilarious and a good guy) and will do what you ask. I just picked up our wedding rings today and am really happy with the product. The quality is incredible and all repairs they can handle right there. Wish I had gotten my fiancé's engagement ring from these guys.
