From New York to Manila and Beyond: Stellar !
After much research, canvassing, and trepidation,
I decided to purchase our engagement stone from Trijewels.com. The fact that this would be my first online international purchase weighted heavily on my mind (I am based in Manila, so you can just imagine my anxiety at the thought of purchasing and shipping in a diamond from an internet seller) but this was pleasantly replaced by the attentive, prompt, and personalized service provided by Vijay Bhatia. Through real-time email correspondence, he was able to answer all my queries and make sure that the purchase would push through promptly and properly.
These factors clinched the deal for me:
+Trijewels.com has the best BBB rating and numerous verifiable certifications
+Best value prices (stone quality/size versus pricing) across the board
+Concierge quality service provided by Vijay and his staff
+Vijay's fair, warm, and ultimately professional approach
Vijay assured me that he would send the best he could and he did not disappoint. We took the stone to 2 different jewelers (family jewelers in fact) in Manila once we got it and they all confirmed the stone's quality and size. Our jeweler actually took extra time to have it set properly as he wanted to do justice to the stone.
As much as I hate using idioms, the expression 'the proof is in the pudding' definitely applies to Trijewels.com and here's a link to our proposal video: http://youtu.be/Mr8newjMjCU
Vijay helped me make sure that things worked out for our engagement and I now anoint him as my personal jeweler (in New York that is). I say that because we will definitely be purchasing more jewelry from Trijewels.com (my fiancee apparently deserves earrings, a necklace, and more diamond encrusted accouterments).
The admiration and wonderful compliments she gets from friends, family, and acquaintances on her ring are incentive and encouragement to complete our black diamond wedding set...wait, having said that, I think I'll have Vijay make some sort of guy ring or bracelet for me. Hmm..
This review is getting out of hand but the truth is I can probably go on for a good 888 words more when it comes to how happy and satisfied I am with my purchase.
Thank you very much Vijay and we look forward to a prosperous relationship with you.
From New York to Manila and beyond, Trijewels.com deserves my highest accolade: Stellar!
