Stambaugh's was fantastic. Remembered our names and faces. Presented us with many different options and did not try to push the most expensive on us. When picking up the wedding bands they supplied us with a personalized memorialized gift. Love working with them and now that we have moved out of state we still call and email to work with them rather than our local jeweler.

Stambaugh Jewelers were so great to work with. My husband knew it might cost a little extra, but he wanted excellent service when it came to picking out the ring. They did just that. They really helped us through the entire process and were incredibly personable. They actually gave us a gift when I picked up my ring right before the wedding which totally surprised me.

I would definitely recommend Stambaugh's to anyone in the market for jewelry. They are really nice people.
