I can't stop staring at my unique wedding ring!
By phholmes on 12/23/2012
Unique engagement rings! When we started the search for the most perfect ring almost every where had the same rings, AND then we went to Catherine Angiel and had a hard time picking which beautiful design was the ring that my fiance would wear forever. I would absolutely recommend going to the store if you are looking for a unique, edgy yet delicate ring.
Catherine Angiel has Beautiful and Unique Engagement Rings!
By lleven82 on 12/23/2012
My fiance and I had just started our engagement ring search and found Catherine Angiel's website. We both loved the vintage feel of her engagement ring designs and made a trip to the store. It was our first and last stop. I fell in love with a pink gold engagement ring that had beautiful details at every angle of the ring. And it has an incredible sparkly cushion cut diamond in the middle. Needless to say, my fiance bought the ring for me and I am thrilled. We will definitely go back for our wedding bands, and now, my fiance has a place to go for future gifts!
Perfect Engagement Ring
By cnw on 8/8/2012
My fiance and I went to a number of different stores when looking for my engagement ring. During our entire search, I assumed we would have to get a ring custom-made because most rings we saw had some elements I liked, but some that I didn't. As a designer, I can be very particular about aesthetics and detail, and I was looking for something unique. Catherine Angiel was our last visit, and, lo and behold, she had the perfect ring for me - delicate, vintage-inspired, detailed, and different from anything I'd seen before. All we did was choose our metal and diamond - everything else was already so beautiful, we didn't want to change a thing - and a month later we had our gorgeous ring! I can't tell you how many compliments I've received from friends AND strangers. It is truly a work of art!

Catherine Angiel must have had me in mind when she created her collections. Im very picky when it comes to spending money on clothing and jewelry, and usually get frustrated trying to find something unique and special. I was surprised to find numerous pieces I want to purchase. Her collections are gorgeous. I think my husband will be relieved, though he will no doubt be in big trouble:)
Fun and Edgy High End Jewelry!
By JoyDivision on 4/17/2012
I went to Catherine's shop a few weeks ago because I had heard great things about her jewelry and that it is "my style" Tax return check in hand, yes I do them early, i was determined to find something different. What a relief to be around diamond jewelry and not have used car salesman or pretentious salespeople breathing down my neck. I found the perfect ring with my hard earned money. A sliced grey diamond in white gold. I didn't even know that diamonds were "sliced" but it is amazing! I love it! I will definitely be back with next year's return!
Fabulous Commitment Bands and other Cool Stuff!
By JaniceD on 7/26/2011
My partner and I were happily in need of commitment rings, and we wanted to support the designer that originally created these special bands. The collection was beautiful and my partner and I got to work with Catherine personally. We love our rings, and we were both happy to support Catherine, as she has been a huge advocate for equality, and has made large contributions to our community for decades. Her bands are unique, and it's obvious there's a tremendous amount of passion in her creations.
A great experience!

I just posted this on yelp! But I discovered Catherine Angiel from an ad in NYmag so I wanted to be sure I posted here too. I was hunting for a diamond that was reasonably priced, and a mounting that was unusual. My girlfriend is picky, and wisely did not trust my design style She did all of the schlepping, and months of internet searching, and finally went wild over a ring by designer Catherine Angiel. I have to say the ring was really awesome. On my end, I did my due diligence and got a decent diamond education. When I spoke to Catherine Angiel, they had a stone that was in my price range, and was in sync with what I had learned. They were professional, and very helpful, and did a fantastic job on my girlfriends ring. I was very happy with the quality, and service Catherine Angiel provided. I also really liked the hammered band as my wedding band, and plan on going back to purchase it when my wallet is full again I highly recommend them to anyone shopping for a unique ring!
Relieved to find
By Kathryn12 on 5/5/2011
I just recently got engaged, and have been meaning to write a review because I had such a wonderful experience at this shop. I had been on the engagement ring hunt for awhile, but was getting so discouraged by the lack-luster mountings I'd been seeing. I wanted something thin and delicate, but not boring! All the rings I saw that were "thin" were either not thin enough or were too thin to hold diamonds - they were just metal with no stones. I came here off the recommendation of a friend who lives nearby, and was sooooo relieved!!! There were 3 "thin" styles that I just loved that were NOT BORING. I actually chose the rose-gold mounting with tiny stones all the way around, and stones in the prongs. My friends tell me it's "so you."
Unique Engagement Ring Collection
By masyl on 1/12/2011
I did a good deal of research on the computer, and read about Jewelry Designer Catherine Angiel, and that they have a great selection of Engagement Rings, so I made that my first stop in my journey. I had a pretty good idea what shape and size stone my girlfriend liked, and knew she liked antique jewelry, so I had something to go on. The sales person showed me a selection of rings she thought fit my vision, and I especially liked the ring they call 'endless'. It had really cool detail, but not too much. I also like the stone was set low. I went to a few other places, including 47th street, and nothing really compared. I was also happily surprised at the price of the Catherine Angiel ring compared to other similar stones. It was surprisingly reasonable. I purchased the endless ring, and presented it last week, and my fiance loved it. They have a great selection in both price and design selections.
would recommend. great wedding rings
By jessicaWien on 1/3/2011
Love the engagement rings. I knew I wanted a vintage inspired ring, but I was having a really hard time finding anything I liked, its seems like everything out there is too chunky, or lacking the polish that I found at Catherine Angiel. The sales people were super friendly and layed back- the designer even came out and talked to my fiance and I about the different types of mountings and why it is so hard to find such delicate vintage rings. I may even put a black diamond in the ring I like, It's a little different, but still a really classic look. It was a great experience, I would highly recommend
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- 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.
