I wanted to have a hand in my engagement ring design, so I went with my fiancee to For Richer or Poorer in Brooklyn after reading the rave reviews. It did not disappoint, unlike most jewelers, you work with Tara, a young woman recently wed herself, who knows first hand what a woman wants in a ring. She made us both feel very comfortable and was straight up about pricing and what you get for your money. Her settings were gorgeous and she found some great diamonds for us to choose from. I didn't see the finished product until I was proposed to, and it turned out way better than I could have imagined. We will be going back for our wedding bands for sure.
Pros: warm environment, good service, straight up about prices
Cons: None that I can think of
