A little Abby's history...

John and Diane Carom started Abby's at his mother's kitchen table in 1983 with a $400 investment, first selling gold jewelry to family friends and co-workers at their offices and homes.

In 1985 with more an "old world" customer satisfaction philosophy, John opened the doors of Abby's Gold and Gems with humble beginnings.

The business grew slowly into a full-service jewelry store, progressive in its efforts and maintaining an emphasis on high quality and customer satisfaction.

Abby's has become a destination for over 23,000 customers since its move to 197 Morgantown Street in Uniontown in 1989.

Since its inception Abby's has remained a family operation run by husband and wife with daughter and son, sisters, nieces and nephews, helping all along the way.

Plus we have great affiliations...

Abby's is a proud member of the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce.

Abby's belongs to the prestigious Jewelers of America (JA) and adheres to JA; code of Professional Practices.

After getting the "okay" from my now fiancé, then boyfriend, to start looking at engagement rings, I knew that I wouldn't trust anyone other than John Carom and the staff at Abby's Gold and Gems. John not only was professional and courteous, but he also demonstrated his expansive knowledge of jewelry and gems by educating me about the wide range of selections. I went in looking for something a little different, but still timeless and that is exactly what John put together. We discussed colored diamonds and non-diamond center stones, and how to set these in a ring so that they would be the focus. Soon after my appointment with John, my fiancé went to discuss the options with him, and he raved about the professionalism, expertise, and the quality of service, as well as quality of the jewelry. John put together the perfect custom designed ring for me, but the service did not end there! After my fiancé proposed, John asked for me to come back in with the ring so that he could then explain to me how to care for my new precious piece of jewelry. We were both completely satisfied with our experience and could not imagine going anywhere else!

Couldn't possibly say enough great things about John and his staff at Abby's. After visiting a couple chain jewelers in search of the perfect engagement ring, I just could not settle on a design that I fell in love with or service that made me want to go back and work with. After visiting Abby's for a half hour..I knew exactly what I loved and had all my options displayed to me. It's amazing how many variations of a similar style are available. Everyone is so professional but yet you leave there feeling as though you just made several friends. All the employees genuinely care and value your opinion. After going to look, my boyfriend (now fiance!) said, "I can't believe we wasted our time going anywhere else." We couldn't be happier with the experience...or my ring!! :)

We can't say enough wonderful things about Abby's. John, Diane, Danette, and staff always go above and beyond for us. Abby's is family owned and operated and that is exactly the treatment you get. Every time we go in there we get treated like family. John went out of his way to make sure that my engagement ring was everything I had dreamed it would be. Our wedding rings were equally as special. We have and will continue to recommend Abby's to everyone we know. Any guy that is looking to propose to the love of his life, we recommend going to Abby's for that perfect engagement ring, as well as your wedding rings. You will be glad you did. We are so lucky to be a part of the Abby's family.
