I went into the store on a weekend and took a look around. I was VERY surprised to see that how much of a mark up was on some of the pieces. I never saw RAW, no even cut diamonds be so expensive. And when I asked the girl that was helping me why the price was so high, she didn't really have a good answer or even a decent answer (which would defiantly make me reluctant to purchase such high ticket items). Most educated consumers would take their business elsewhere, especially in this economy. You get more bang for your buck at other places and more knowledgeable employees. Maybe the rent is really high? I don't know. I also find it hard that almost everyone on these reviews have had such a 'amazing experiences'. It seems they all 'simply loved everything' and they all were 'so intimidated to ring the door bell.' Seems like all the posts were written by same authors. I just didn't get a good feeling from this place, which is a shame because it is in such a wonderful location.
Overpriced and not so friendly

Pretty things but extremely overpriced. Service is not so friendly.

I went with fiance to look at a ring that we saw in the back of NY Mag. Loved the look of it. Very unique! The ring that was advertised was out at a photo shoot or something so we couldn't take a look at it. I wasn't too impressed with the selection but the good news was that they were willing to 'remake' anything I wanted. All I had to do was bring in the picture of the rings and the will remake it for MUCH cheaper. The staff was absolutely willing to work with my budget and negotiate prices on the setting and diamonds. Unfortunately, I couldn't wait the 6-8 weeks it was going to take to remake the piece, so I had to go somewhere else. Great and incredibly accommodating staff!
simply the best ever!

My wife is an artist with a passion for fine designer jewelry, so searching for something to impress her is not easy. We both heard nothing but raves about catherine angiel's gallery and finally got down to the West Village to see for ourselves. We immediately understood what all the buzz was about. The designs are complete works of art, tasteful and dazzling. we were incredibly excited. And the staff are not only friendly, but they know their stuff. what an additional pleasure. As far as value, we find her prices very reasonable for designer jewelry and we have spent years searching to know. The work is well worth it and so is a visit. just remember, 'you get what you pay for' We would never think of shopping anywhere else for our jewelry. Good luck and happy shopping!
Best Designer Jewelry

Run don't walk to this amazing jewelry shop in the west village. They have everything you can imagine and designed to perfection! My husband and I only wish we found Catherine's shop before buying our engagement ring, but we were lucky enough to find her for our bands. The designs have the finesse that others lack, including my engagement ring, which I plan on having Catherine redesign for my anniversary. Everyone we recommended has felt the same. So if your in the market for fine jewelry with incredible taste and style, bolt over there!

Here's the deal; Boy meets girl, Boy falls in love, Boy goes to Catherine Angiel, Boy is a hero. Any questions?
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!

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!

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.
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.
