    Excellent!

    Anthony was a pleasure to work with, both before and through our engagement. My now-husband and I decided to choose the engagement ring together, and I wanted a ring that was similar to my mother's estate ring. I couldn't find anything online or in stores that had a similar look and I was really starting to feel destined to having to spend weekends at estate sales to find what I was looking for (which is not how I wanted to spend my weekends!). At our first appointment, Anthony understood exactly what I was looking for and helped us find an engagement ring that matched my vision and our budget. The diamond he helped us choose was gorgeous too! I get complimented all the time on my ring.

    Anthony also helped us choose our wedding bands – mine matched the vintage look of my engagement ring perfectly and my husband's is a simple, classic band. Through the entire process, Anthony was fantastic. He helped us find exactly what we wanted and made the process so easy. We can't recommend him highly enough.

    Anthony at Protea Diamonds couldn't have been more amazing and attentive to details. My fiance and I visited his shop in Arlington and he helped us design a custom engagement ring. I let him know all of the things I wanted -- a non traditional ring with both a colored stone and diamonds. And then he and my fiance met just the two of them to put it together. He was incredible helpful with lots of personal attention. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to ditch the mass-produced and over-priced jewelers at the mall and work with someone who has exacting attention to detail and makes beautiful jewelry.

    Purchasing our jewelry from Protea was one of the best decisions we made. Anthony did a superb job of educating us about what constitues a high-quality diamond. He educated us about some of the tricks jewelers use to sell you diamonds. He took the time to learn about us, our likes and dislikes, and our budget. He dealt with us fairly and never tried to upsell us. Above all, I feel like we got a tremendous value for what we paid. I would highly recommend Protea to anyone. In fact, I already have.

    I have not personally bought a diamond or jewelry from this firm but if I was in the market – they would be my first choice. I have known Anthony and his family for several years when I videotaped multiple life-cycle events for them. They are wonderful clients, easy to deal with, patient, courteous and caring at all times. (In my opinion - all essential attributes in the jewelry business). My cousin told me she grew up in the same neighborhood as Anthony and remembers him fondly even after 30 years. Perhaps one day I might have the pleasurable experience of becoming a Protea Diamond’s customer too.

    If you're looking for top-tier service, this is the best place to go for your diamonds! Protea isn't a storefront like the retail jewelers you're used to. You make an appointment, are buzzed in and warmly welcomed. Then the parade of diamonds begins! You sit at a table and the jewels are brought to you. Informed experts, the people at Protea know what they're talking about and how to provide you with the best service AND the best jewels. They also provide appraisals. By the way, Protea is the national flower of South Africa, where owner Anthony is originally from - I love that!
