Bad Experience

I have never been so insulted. I wanted to buy my mother-in-law a small gift and when I told them how much I wanted to spend, the employees all but told me to go shop at Macys!!! I have never been more insulted and treated so poorly as I was at Aaron Basha. I will never shop there again! The employees as well as the management are all rude and snobby. The cheesy jewelry goes along perfectly with their obnoxious attitudes.

The WORST shopping experience ever on Madison Avenue

I agree with the other posters here. I never felt more unwanted in a store. All i wanted to do was look around the store, and they practically pushed me out of the door. I was told Aaron is always there. Well, he was, and he is the rudest, more arrogant person I have ever come in contact with. I will NEVER go back!!!

A Whimsical World of Fantasy Charms

I was looking for a special gift for two important people in my life, my mother, and fiance. I had heard that Aaron Basha had a very eclectic collection of high end luxury charms. As soon as I stepped into the Madison Ave store I was greeted by a beautiful young women who seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. I found the most adorable Pave Diamond Baby Shoe and Panda Bear Charm, and they couldn't have been more perfect! Both my fiancee and my mother were delighted and I think I've definitely started a family tradition!

I work for a top fashion magazine so people call me a fashionista and I've seen it all, but there is nothing that thrills me more than beautiful things in small little packages. If your looking for fun and beautiful jewelry you have to treat yourself to Aaron Basha. Every time I'm there its a whole new experience. I don't know how they do it. I highly recommend them.

Most adorable charm selection!

I am a devoted fan of good luck charms, pendants, charm bracelets and the like. After reading of Aaron Basha's praise in many of the high fashion magazines I regularly indulge in, I decided to stop by their famous Madison Ave boutique to see the charms in all their glory...I certainly was not disappointed! Not only did I take home a beautiful Evil Eye Pendant (which according to ancient belief wards off evil- can't hurt right?), but I was also pleasantly greeted by an extremely helpful staff, including the delightful Aaron himself! Overall, I would highly recommend the Aaron Basha experience to any discerning jewelry devotee.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
