Gem source was able to repair and resize my wedding set on site in less than 48 hours. The bands were misshapen from years of wear and the stone was becoming... loose on my engagement ring. When I picked my rings up they looked brand new. Great, friendly and fast service!read more
If you are looking for one of a kind, new or upgrade i have no doubt Jim at Gem Source can make it happen. Jim did a wonderful job finding the perfect diamond... to upgrade my current wedding rings. He surpassed my expectations on size, quality, value and price. I let him know what I was looking for and he showed me several to choose from. In the end I chose a beautiful diamond with a small flaw on the outer edge that he covered with a prong when it was set. Beyond excited with the new addition!!!Love the knowledge of jewelry and diamonds. Locally owned so jewelry always stays on hand!read more

I HIGHLY recommend Gem Source. Knowing that purchasing an engagement ring is an important life decision, Jim takes the time to educate, listen, and recommend... the perfect ring for your financial situation. Jim was nothing less than a class act — very responsive, professional, and thoughtful. He really cares about his clients and was happy to hear that my fiancé described my purchase as her “dream ring.” I am confident that you will be pleased with Gem Source and will find a ring that will blow her away.read more

I have to say I am so grateful I chose the team at Gem Source to design my customer ring. Jim managed to use diamonds I had that were very sentimental to me... and create a beautiful ring. I have had so many compliments on this piece in the short time I have had it. Thank you Gem Source for being so patient with my requests and for meeting them to the tee! Top notch serviceread more
