I always read reviews to help in my decisions with services I choose. Based on the persons bad experience & review previously posted really scared me in going to Anthony's. I inherited my mother's ring in which I needed to replace the center round 10mm stone along with wanting to design a custom creation for my daughters. I am a novice at jewelers, but I know what I want & I know what I like. After visiting Anthony's , I went into several stores, one in Issaquah, Federal Way, etc., and I have to give 5 stars to Anthony's because not only is his experience and tenor valid as a Goldsmith Jeweler, he is one of the only, if not very few Goldsmiths in town that does work himself instead of shipping it off to a third party. The energy of the store is welcoming vs the other stores I have been into & the prices from the other stores, Whew! Anthony spent 5 months working with me on my constant decision changes in my custom design without any expectations of committment from me or payment and not even knowing if I was even going to do business with him or not. He did not know me as I did not know him but he was making sure my custom design was to my liking regardless & giving me his professional input & ideas. There are two sides to every story regarding the bad review in which I discussed my concerns with Anthony after he worked on my design for 5 months. He was professional & cordial in our discussion and Anthony has pretty much earned my trust in this time as no other jeweler in town I felt comfortable with in doing business with and in leaving my special sentimental pieces with. I trusted in my gut instinct Anthony becoming my jeweler. Today He is working on my custom designs & yesterday, I just picked up my mother's ring & Wow! I replaced the 10m round stone with a faceted ethiopian opal along with replacing a 4 prong to a 6 prong head and he repaired the 7 prongs that have diamonds set. I am beyond Ecstatic of the beautiful work, attention to detail and care that Anthony's craftsmanship exudes; I can't wait to see the custom designs next week and I have no doubt whatsoever in them turning out better than I anticipate because I am completely in awe of my mothers ring & so thankful for Anthony. This is my 1st review I have ever left for any establishment in which I strongly feel is warranted based on my experience with Anthony's; and to think I almost did not give him a shot due to the previous review that was left. I highly recommend Anthony's Jewelers to Everyone who wants quality work done; he offers the fairest price in town and your work is done right in the store you walk into by Anthony & his Son.
