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 !

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

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

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.

Amazing Experience

Mel was great to work with. As a guy that never wore a ring before, he helped me with everything I needed to make a great decision. After finally figuring out what I wanted he told me they did not have anything in stock like what I was looking for. What did he do? He gave me a 3week timetable and custom made my wedding ring. It came out perfectly. I would 100% recommend anyone to go here.

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.
