Pearlmans is one of my favorite Jewelers in the ENTIRE UNITED STATES. I live in CA, and bought my wedding bands and my attendant gifts from them. I'm also a member of a Jewelery Board (pricescope.com) that has very exacting standards of service and quality from all jewelry vendors and I can tell you that Pearlmans is the best of the best in every way.
I cannot praise them enough. I just wish I had more money to buy more jewelery from them... but I will, eventually, and you can bet Pearlman's will be my first call.
The designers they carry, the loose diamond quality, the amazing selection, the service and attention to detail are top notche. And they've got the awards to prove it.
