I went to Bashford Jewelry because I was looking for something original. I started with their ring builder, it was very easy to use and it was fun to build my own ring.Sent on 01/26/2018
I ended up buying a pave diamond ring with an emerald cut stone. I love that its unique and that I got to design it with my fiancé making it all the more special for both of us. Not guess work involved.
all in all it was a great experience

I highly recommend Bashford for your next jewelry purchase. It was important for my fiancée and I to work with a jeweler that makes ethics a priority when it comes to sourcing their products so we were excited to find Bashford. It was also important for us to be able to create a unique, custom wedding set. Working with their online ring builder was excellent. It was great to be able to select the different options available and see the results in real time on their site and it was very easy, intuitive and fun to explore the many different styles, settings and stones they offer in a wide variety of combinations. Once we placed out order they provided excellent customer service throughout the entire process. Once the rings arrived we were absolutely thrilled with the finished product. The quality and craftsmanship was superb. We were so happy with the wedding set that we are now planning on purchasing Mother’s Day gifts through their site as well. Whether you’re looking for wedding, engagement rings, earrings or necklaces you will be extraordinary pleased with the products and services provided by Bashford Jewelry.Sent on 03/03/2018
