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.

It was my pleasure working with proprietor Mel and his staff at Wedding Ring Originals in NYC. It's important to note that this store offers quite a large jewelry selection that is not limited to wedding sets. The shop is attentive, courteous, professional, and helpful with great attention to detail. Pricing is quite competitive, the best I found for my item. I comfortably completed my entire transaction over the phone from Colorado without ever setting foot in the shop. My purchase arrived on time and was everything I hoped for. I am very pleased!

So glad I got my ring from Mel!

He was very, very helpful, right from the very beginning. It was an educational experience, and I never felt any of the sales pressure or whatnot that I was used to checking out other shops. The final product is absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't be happier -- it's precisely what I imagined when I first embarked on getting a custom ring made.

Mel and Wedding Ring Originals - A Perfect Match

My fiance and I had been shopping online for weeks before we scheduled an appointment with WRO. I had checked out the list of stores in the NY magazine Wedding issue and was impressed with WRO's inventory. From the initial phone call to schedule an appointment Mel was a pleasure to work with. My fiance and I had an idea of what we were looking for in matching wedding bands and Mel gently guided us with his expert advice and knowledge by schooling us in how to design the bands, how they should feel on your finger, the differences between machine made and custom made etc. He made us feel completely comfortable and we knew he was the jeweler we wanted to purchase our rings from. He helped us with every detail of our custom rings and we could not be happier with the final result. Thank you Mel - it was a pleasure doing business with you!
