My mother has gone to Drapers for years for everything from baby rattles to monogrammed picture frames. They're pretty popular for their machine engraving on gift items. Like the person with the review below me, I purchased a very simple 2 or 3mm plain white gold band from them and asked them to engrave a date on it. The woman who was rude to me and never made eye contact once, said that they would have to hand engrave it, because their machine couldn't accomodate something so thin. Seriously, it is the worst engraving I've ever seen. They started the number 5 as we would write it, making the form and then adding the dash/cap across the top. Except they stopped. So they already didn't make a fluid one stroke engraving, but it now looks like it says 215 instead of 25. It's unbalanced and the numbers are not the same size at all. I expressed my dissappointment and she raised her voice at me and since you have to pay for the ring before engraving, I asked for a refund, or partial refund. She refused. \r
I never take off the ring because I don't want people to see the engraving. I hate to wear it because I know itls there. If I can suggest anyone to make a quality ring in Nashville, it's Jay Yontef who I chose to do my wedding and engagement bands instead of Draper.
Pros: ring was priced as they were in other stores
Cons: the old family store can have its charm, but not covered in dust. customer service, parking!
