Great Service, Good Prices
By JFleming on 6/6/2016
I purchased my wedding band from Mel about six years ago. I purchased the ring online and when my ring arrived - I was very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of the ring. I could not match the quality or price locally (Atlanta). Unfortunately, about a month ago, I lost my wedding band, so I contacted Mel to see if he could provide me a duplicate and sure enough - he not only delivered (yet again) on a high quality wedding band, but offered me an exceptional price. Mel is easy to work with and a true pleasure. I highly recommend you shop around and then see Mel. You will be happy that you did!
The Perfect Experience!
By averyramin on 5/25/2016
I was introduced to Mel through a colleague in London and the experience couldn't have been better. Mel is a wonderful consultative gentleman who helped me and my now fiance walk through the various options. We eventually went with a custom designed setting based off a design we liked from somewhere else, and Mel took it to the next level. We were able to design and end up with a far nicer piece than at a large retailer like Tiffany and the process couldn't have gone smoother. I highly rec Mel and Wedding Ring Originals for any of your needs and we will be going back to him for our wedding bands in several months. My fiance couldn't be happier. Thanks Mel!
The Jewel of Midtown

I'm so happy that a friend recommended Wedding Ring Originals and Mel to us for our wedding bands. The experience was completely different from what I expected. Mel was so patient with us and took the time to get to know us and our tastes while also teaching us a lot about rings and metals and the creative possibilities for our bands. As stressful as wedding planning can be, Mel made getting our wedding bands - one of the most important and long lasting parts of the wedding - one of the easiest parts. He worked so closely with us to find rings that complemented one another but fit our individual personalities and specific budget parameters. I am obsessed with my wedding band and I can't wait to go back to work with him for all of our future special occasions.
Beautiful amethyst cuff links!
By Happymom2 on 7/8/2015
thank you! The custom, handmade cuff links you created for me are just what I had in mind. In fact, they exceeded my expectations. This will be a gift for my son, and I know that he will love them. The process was delightful and couldn't have been easier for me. The finished product is a work of art. Thank you for helping me create a unique gift that I am sure will be treasured for many many years.
Amazing experience, even better result!

Working with Mel K made my process of purchasing an engagement ring an extremely enjoying and stress-free experiencE. Mel was always available and responded quickly and kindly to all of my questions and thoughts about the ring , no matter how many times I was changing my mind ! At the end of the day, he was able to guide me through the process so that the final product was exactly what I wanted and still fit into my budget. The final product is absolutely perfect and came out better than I could have imagined. The best part of working with Mel was the trust factor I had with him - I always knew he had my best interest in mind and was going to give me the highest quality product possible. I am already looking forward to working with Mel on our wedding bands !
Stunning ring and an amazing experience. Highly recommended.

The wedding buying experience at Wedding Ring Originals was, in a word, perfect. Mel K., the owner, was unassuming, personable and erudite. We went for a custom ring and brought in some images of the style and design we wanted. Mel was able to reproduce every detail and modified elements that only an experienced and professional eye could reveal. When it came to picking the stone, Mel made sure that we understood diamond buying and the grading system, which I sincerely appreciated. This is a five star review without exaggeration. Wedding Ring Originals is a jewelry store that I trust and would recommend again and again. High quality craftsmanship and the best customer care.

Mel is a pleasure to deal with. He takes the time to explain all the options and is an invaluable resource when purchasing a ring, or any piece of fine jewelry. He will guide you to the perfect item and help work within any budget. I highly recommend a visit to Mel at Wedding Ring Originals

Gorgeous jewelry at very fair cost and great servixe
By Nycgirl1 on 3/19/2015
We had both our wedding rings, as well as my engagement ring created by Mel as the recommendation of a friend who used him. We loved working with him, and the final product! My rings are perfect. I had an idea of what style ring I wanted and he created exactly what I described. I love how he cleans them free anytime in the machine anytime I pop in. The shop is located near the diamond district but is not anything similar at the diamond row. He is a legitamite business, NOT the diamond district type! Very fair. We actually are friendly with a jewelry appraiser and when we had the rings appraised for good measure, we were happy that the price was spot on. Mel is great. Highly recommend him.
great experience/quality work
By MikeT121614 on 12/16/2014
I went to Mel at Wedding Ring Originals for an engagement ring after searching custom engagement rings online and coming across his reviews. He could not have been more helpful throughout the entire process. He educated me on every aspect of the jewelry making process for this specific piece. Eventually I had to bring my fiance in because I could not decide on the particulars of the ring. He then worked with both of us to create the ring from scratch and guided us on every single detail of the ring. When I told him what I wanted to spend, he never went beyond that amount and also never compromised on the quality of the ring. Even after my fiance changed her mind on what she wanted a day after leaving his shop, he gladly re-worked the entire ring computer-aided design and created a beautiful engagement ring. We really could not have asked for a better experience. We had our wedding bands made by Mel, and again, we had an outstanding experience with him.
