    My engagement ring and wedding bands were purchased from Barmakian and I am very satisfied. Their multiple locations makes it easy to get a quick polish at your convenience. Six months into our engagement, my ring bent after becoming malleable at the end of a long day at the beach, but Barmakian fixed it quickly, replacing a lost diamond (it is an infinity band) at a very reasonable cost. Their service is great and the cost is very comparable, even to those chain jewelers at the mall :)

    After spending a full day in the jeweler's building, moving from store to store to see what they have and price check, we landed at Barmakian. My ring is perfect! The price was definitely fair. The sales staff was patient and professional.

    When we started looking for bands, we decided to attend Barmakian's annual wedding band event during which they offer a discount. We also decided to go to the NH store (to save the sales tax). The event was crowded with other couples, but we received a lot of patient and individual attention when it was our turn. At the event, you order the rings (you don't walk out with them). The one downside is that they sold my husband his ring much too small, so on our wedding day it didn't fit. Now, this is partially our fault. At the store when he tried it on, my husband said to the salesman that it was too small and the salesman insisted that we needed it small so that it wouldn't fall off and that my husband just wasn't used to wearing jewelery (both true). We could have been more insistent about the size, but we agreed. Thus, my husband wasn't able to wear his ring on our wedding day or on the honeymoon.

    My husband works in town, just a few blocks from the jeweler's building, so after we got back from the honeymoon he brought it over to the Boston location during lunch. They fixed the ring in less than 20 minutes with no charge. The work is perfect and you could never tell that it has been resized.

    Barmakian Jewelers has unparalleled service and selection. The individual we worked with helped us chose our perfect wedding bands in a low-pressure environment. The prices were great...perhaps a little higher than other jewelers in the area but the quality is much higher.

    We got the engagement and wedding rings from the Nashua NH store. Great customer service. We got our bands during a wedding ring sale and they passed out free champagne which i realize now, what better way to get some sales than to get your customers a little tipsy. My husband needed his ring resized after the wedding and there were no issues and he had it back in less than 5 minutes.

    Theres always someone there to help and assist you.

    I purchase the engagement ring here for my wife, and we went back for the matching band. The staff were professional but often already occupied when we'd come in. Once they were free, they would attend to our needs and do so with a smile. Certainly, you don't get something for nothing with diamonds and platinum, but the prices are very reasonable. They're not the best I've heard of, but I consider it a trade-off. I leveraged their heft in the industry to get the perfect solitaire for our situation, a band that was just what she wanted, and a matching wedding band that exceeded our expectations. Certainly we paid good money for it, but it could have been more expensive at other jewelers as well. I would (and do) send friends and colleagues there!

    We had a great experience with Barmakian and are confident that our wedding rings are high quality and will be cared for by them for many years to come.

    Ecxcellent jeweler and will be our jewler of choice moving forward. Top quality service and spectacular diamonds. Honest and committed to obtaining and keeping your business. At Barmakian's its not about a transaction...it's about a commitment and becoming a client.

    We bought all our wedding rings from barmakian and we love them. My husband even bought my wedding gift (a pair of beautiful drop earrings) from barmakian which i absolutely adore!! They have a huge selection of engagement rings and wedding bands and anything they don't have, they can make for you!

    My Husband and I never went engagement ring shopping together, so I was beyond surprised to see the gorgeous engagement ring he chose for me! I will certainly give him most of the credit, but I also have to thank the wonderful team at Barmakian Jewelers for helping to navigate this process with us! Every time we visited one of their stores (sizing rings, selecting wedding bands) they were incredibly friendly and had top-notch customer service! They really took the time to understand what we looking for, and were so patient with us as we looked through all of their wonderful wedding band options. We never felt rushed or pressure to buy something that we didn't love. We are now Barmakian customers for life! I would highly recommend them to any newly engaged couple!

    my engagement ring was very detailed and was a one of a kind. I had a very hard time finding a band to match. Barmakian was super helpful and I couldnt' be happier with my wedding band!

    We got my engagement ring and my wedding bands at this vendor. We were not thrilled with the customer service in Natick, so we ended up going to Nashua, NH. There we met a friendly salesman who was more willing to work within our budget.

    We used Barmakian for both the engagement ring and wedding bands. The service was excellent and the rings are beautiful. For my engagement ring we had the stones but needed to make them into a ring - they got this completed in one day, which was amazing (and I think a rare circumstance!). For our wedding bands they had a great selection and price range to choose from and we are very happy with the rings we selected.

    We had a diamond so just need a setting for my ring.
    They have the most unique settings around with a good value.
    My husband waited until the last minute to get his ring and when he went to try it on the weekend before it was too small.
    So they put a rush on the order to have the right side for the wedding.

    Barmakian Jewelers make you feel very special from the moment you climb the grand staircase to the diamond and bridal jewelry. We had a personal 1:1 consultant to find our bands. My husband said the service was impeccable when he went in to pick out my engagement ring. They took him into a private room to show him different stones and settings and put them together until he found the perfect one. they engraved our weddng bands free of charge, whcih was a very special touch. They also recommended that I bring in my rings every four months to have them checked and polished. They do all of this free of charge. This is where we buy all our jewelry now. We highly recommend them.

    Phenomenal jeweler. They even made my wedding band custom to match my engagement ring. They did not charge for having the ring custom made. My husband will only go back to them for jewelry from now on!

    We got the engagement ring here, and the bands. I also bought my bridesmaids gifts from here too!
    Wonderful jewelry. Staff was excellent. We went to the one in NH at the time... but now we live near the one in Framingham. I go there al lthe time to have my rings cleaned and checked.

    The NH store had a wedding day at the store.. you go and get a discount on bands.. etc. They have all diff. vendors there that day too. It was very helpful you get a little gift bag as well.. and free champange..and chocolate covered strawberries, and cake etc! Attend! It was worth it. We ended buying our bands that day!!!

    Went to Barmakian's for engagement ring after trying several others. Never went anywhere else afterwards. The people there are knowledgeable, very friendly and is a no-pressure atmosphere. My wife and I got our wedding bands there and have returned several times.

    This was the best service I have ever received hands down. I went with my fiancé to pick out my Tacori ring in the Natick store and had the best experience. I went in looking for one style and once I tried it on I realized I did not like it on my hand. Chris was the best helping me choose the perfect Tacori ring for me. He was not pushy and got to know my style and also helped me choose my future wedding band. My ring looks perfect and will be going back back to see Chris to order our bands soon!

    Great to work with. Hours are a little funny if you work a regular 9-5 job - may be hard to get there prior to closing if you live a ways away. Other than that, helpful, great quality, came quickly.
