Jerry is a great guy - he listened carefully to our thoughts and helped us select a great set of engagement and wedding rings that fit our personalities. He let us take our own gold, and blend it together into rings that would feel more significant to us - he made it easy. He was trustworthy, sincere, easy to deal with and just a great guy. We'd certainly go there again when it's time to upgrade. One thing - before you go, shop around a little so that you get an idea of what you want first. His service is top notch and he can do anything you want, but the selection is middlin.
My vision came to life...

I am a very calculated person. I know immediately, even from just a photo if a dress will fit me properly, if a certain shirt will look right on me, and even shoes, so when I found the photo of an engagement ring that I fell in love with (with a few changes of course) I showed my then boyfriend. I took two random photos I found on the Internet and hoped he would find the perfect ring. We never went to try rings on or even stepped in a jewelery store to browse. When he opened that little box and i saw the ring i had always envisioned it just took my breath away. Zingale & Co took those pictures (without ever knowing how ridiculously picky i am) and created the most breathtaking custom made engagement ring that I could only imagine in my mind. My now fiance had nothing but amazing things to say about Joseph and Gerard, the father son duo behind the beauty and sparkle. He said they were helpful, open, honest and made him feel like a part of the family. When we get closer to the wedding we will be heading back to Zingale & Co for our wedding bands and I can't wait to meet the men who read my mind. Thank you so much Zingale & Co, I will be sure to recommend you to all of my friends and family!

I absolutely love my engagement ring from Zingale. It's beautiful!! I get many compliments on it. We also purchased our wedding bands from there as well. Mr. Zingale was extremely accommodating and helpful! We had a wonderful experience. I strongly recommend Zingale & Co.!!!
True class act
By dstrag on 8/12/2011
I am a Florida resident / NYC traveler for work, and researched numerous choices for an engagement ring (including the big stores - Tiffany, Cartier, etc) Was referred to Zingale, who sent a private appointment for me due to my travel constraints. He had researched my input and had numerous options of designs and stones available when I got there. Two meetings later we had a custom design and stone selection. Flew back to get ring, BEAUTIFUL! In true lady fashion, my wife mentioned that she also favored some pave' detail after I had designed, and Gerard was able to have it added for us with no issue. Ring was amazing - design, detail, fabrication, service. So much that we designed a matching wedding band for us also. In the day of the large, commercial advertised mega-stores, I was sold by the personal attention, care, and class of Zingale for the one purchase that should required nothing less! Had
Forever a Fan
By Jcords416 on 8/12/2011
From the moment that I walked through the door of Zingale & Co's beautifully private showroom I felt like I entered someone's home. I was there to choose my engagement ring and I believe my hands were visibly trembling. Gerard could not have been more welcoming. He quickly made me feel very comfortable , washing the nerves away, and helped me to make this very important choice. I was impressed with his friendly manner, as well as, his expertise. He designed and crafted a magnificent ring for me, that I am continually complimented on and will honestly, for the rest of my life, never take off. My husband and I were so pleased with the service and quality we received that we also purchased our wedding bands from Gerard. They are equally magnificent and the quality is top notch. I have Gerard to thank once again for creating a piece of jewelry for me that I will wear all the days of my life. For that, I am a forever fan of Gerard and Zingale & Co.
BEST KEPT SECRET
By SStrager on 8/18/2011
I'm always pulling jewelry for photo shoots and high profile clients and Zingale Jewelers is my GO-TO for great engagement rings and stunning jewelry for the red carpet. They have classics and some really beautiful and unique on-trend items. I will say their custom work far exceeds all expectations-- if you come to them with pictures or ideas of what you want, they make it happen. They've helped my brother, friends and clients. Love seeing stars like Halle Berry on their wall of fame! Gerard is top notch!
BEST Service and Selection = One Classy Establishment
By MDavidovich on 1/4/2012
I sent my picky and not-so-easy-to please parents who were visiting from San Diego to see Gerard. Not only were they impressed with his vast selection and the customization aspect, but also with the Man himself who is a true class act. I love my parents dearly, but they are true skeptics who are NOT easy when it comes to shopping. Gerard patiently took the time to answer their endless questions. His studio is very impressive and has an amazing collection of both statement pieces and personals. Needless to say, after my mom walked out with the perfect ring and is now bugging my dad for another trip to NYC.
