Fab Find in NYC!
By MichChiara7 on 5/20/2010
I have always been a frequent New York City traveler. My most recent trip was for quite a special occasion, my boyfriend & I came to look at designer engagement rings. A local suggested I stop into Catherine Angiel’s Gallery on Greenwich Avenue. I had no idea that I was about to find the most perfect ring that I would wear for the rest of my life! From the ambiance of the shop to the amazing service I received I don’t think I will ever go anywhere else for jewelry; I loved everything. The tattoo jewelry and graffiti jewelry was something I’d never seen before. After viewing all of the beautiful masterpieces in this shop I ended up setting an appointment for the next day with Catherine herself to discuss a custom jewelry design, which I wanted her to create with black diamonds. I love black diamonds! Needless to say I ended up going back home to San Diego with a Catherine Angiel original and my boyfriend proposed just yesterday with the ring I helped create! The edgy jewelry and rock and roll inspired designs are just my style and are created in such a beautiful and delicate way that anybody can wear them. From now on when I visit New York, Catherine Angiel will be my first stop!
I just simply wanted EVERYTHING

Hi I just moved to new york from London, and find NY mag to be very helpful to help me find the "go to" place in New York. I stumbled on an ad for Catherine Angiel, and thought it would be fun to go there. I just simply wanted EVERYTHING not only was the staff so helpful in finding the right gifts for my friends and family for Christmas, but they had an wealthy array of pieces to choose from..I LOVE THIS place! I left with a white diamond necklace for my mum and a black diamond stud pair for my sis and gorgeous cuff links for my husband, I'm very excited to return here for a "me" gift....with my hubby! Cheers

I have seen ads for Catherine Angiel in NY Mag before and my boyfriend and I decided to check it out. Not only did we purchase an amazing designer engagement ring, but we bought a band to go with it AND a band for him too! The staff is very warm and extremely helpful - and SO not intimidating. My new favorite "go-to" jewelry spot. Highly recommend checking this place out before you go anywhere!
Excellent value and designs

I have seen Catherine Angiel in many fashion magazines and her work always caught my eye. I was in Toronto recently on a business trip and tired from the day, I decided to kick back and veg with the Tele. Flipping through the channels I caught a documentary called 'Women On Top" and there was Miss Angiel and her life story and career. It was inspirational and I knew I had to finally go visit the artist, if not for anything but thank her for sharing her great story. The shop itself is unlike any other jewelry store, it is very cool and the collections are amazing. To my relief the prices vary, so there is something in every price range. I purchased a gift for my partner from her prestigious 'Dangerous" collection but in Silver. When I met Miss Angiel she could not be warmer. She added the silver collection recently as she said she wants everyone to be able to wear her creations. It was not just a great place with great designs, it was the whole experience!
The place to go
By johnny61 on 6/27/2008
I am a research kind of guy and when shopping for my engagement ring I was getting as much of an education as possible. It was a real 'blind item' for me and heard to many horror stories. The first place I went was Catherine Angiel. They showed me several stones in my price range and explained the details in language I could understand. Concerned whether I was getting a good deal, I needed to look around some more. In doing so I realized stones are not all created equal and one must see them to understand. The stone selection I saw at Catherine Angiel's were so brilliant, it hurt my eyes. When I looked at stones of the same color and clarity elsewhere they seemed 'flat' in comparison. I learned the cut of the stone makes a huge impact on the price. And it is clear why, It is what makes a diamond sparkle at it's max. Catherine's staff explained this but I had to discover it on my own. I went back after all my research and made my purchase with confidence.
Shopping for a diamond
By larry10 on 6/27/2008
After 3 months of shopping for an engagement ring, a work associate suggest I go see Catherine Angiel. The selection was more than I hoped for. The atmosphere was equal to the product, the staff friendly and very helpful. It is clear they care about the relationship with the customer and not about the one time deal. My ring was beautifully designed and my fiance loved it. I also saw a cool wedding band for myself, which I thought I would never find. If you are in the market for a ring or some really cool designs, don't waste three months talking to sales people like I did. This place is the relief you are searching for.

Shopping for an engagement ring was a much more intimidating experience than I imagined it would be. I tried several places before I discovered Catherine Angiel. The atmosphere was very casual and not stuffy like some of the other places I had tried. The staff really made me feel at ease. They took the time to answer all my questions and I left feeling confident about my purchase.

I rarely write about my shopping experiences, and realized some shops truly deserve major applause. Catherine Angiel's shop is by far the best shopping experience I have had in the sea of jewelry shops. The collections are incredible and so is the service. With their help I selected a diamond necklace for my wife for Hanukkah, it is hands down her favorite piece of jewelry. In her words 'I will wear this everyday for the rest of my life'. I can not say enough what a pleasure it was to shop there!
Sexiest Jewelry in the city
By evathomas on 12/28/2006
I have been a loyal customer of catherine angiel for over a decade. Her work is art and constantly evolves and surprises me. The staff is courteous, outstanding and it is clear they are passionate about their work and trained by the artist herself. To me that shows a great deal of integrity. I made an appointment to work with catherine for a custom design and I can not tell you how absolutely exciting it was to work with her and how completely thrilled I was to own the finished product. Whatever it is you are looking for, you wont have to look anywhere else. They are it!
