Editorial review from Citysearch 12/8/2014

I went in to Krugers this morning to get a stone set in a new ring. Paul was very helpful, apparently a new employee, well done Paul. I needed an appraisal, a cleaning, and a purchase of a new ring. David, the owner I am told, did not even act interested. I was told that what I had was a white sapphire not a diamond, but they could show me no tests to verify this and I got no answer as to what they did to appraise jewelry coming in the door. I got sent somewhere else to get an appraisal on my own then asked to come back so they could do the work. I looked around the store, not one employee was smiling or acting enthusiastic, nor were the few customers there at that time smiling and outwardly happy. I paid over ten dollars to park and did not even get a definitive answer about the jem I brought in. NOT going back. more

I have had two pieces, both rings, repaired and both haven't looked this good since the day I first got them. Taylor was wonderful and explained everything in great detail about the repair process as well as an expected delivery date. Both were done in less time than anticipated. I will definitely be a return customer. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/20/2014

I am happy to recommend Kruger's Jeweler's to anyone. Last month my husband and I walked into Kruger's with my wedding set in need of SERIOUS repair. Taylor Mangiameli was kind enough to wait on us and address all my concerns. Taylor put my mind at ease and made us feel like part of the family. I had my wedding set totally redone by Sam Cisneros and words cannot describe the job he did! I strongly recommend you go by Kruger's on the corn of 8th and Congress for all your jeweler needs, once you go there you will never go anywhere else.\r Taylor and Sam thank you for the wonderful job y'all did !!!!! (I can now speak).\r more

I lost my diamond out of my wedding ring and was devasted. I went to Kruger's Jewelers. Sam the jeweler helped me with replacing my diamond. He new exactly what I was looking for. The diamond he picked compliments my ring better than the original diamond. Everyone there is so nice and helpful. When I got back to my office I went to all my friends showing them my ring! It is beautiful! I am so happy with my ring, I will refer my friends and family to Kruger's Jewelers for any of their jewelry needs. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/20/2013

My entire family shops at Kruger's and each experience is better than the previous. My most recent purchase proved once again why we will never consider another jewelry store. Sam Cisneros, their jeweler was professional and kind when discussing repairs on a ring purchased years ago at another store. Charlotte Thompson showed great patience and understanding as my daughter and I struggled to replace the damaged ring. I will never make the mistake of purchasing jewelry from any store other than Kruger's. Great experience! more

Best experience for buying my wedding band! After many hours on-line and visits to local jewelry stores in Austin I was starting to doubt I could find something local and within 3 months of the wedding. I live downtown and knew about Krugers; however I was reluctant to visit for fear of the hard sale, huge markups and outdated designs. It got to a point where I had nothing to lose. I walked in and met Charlotte Thompson. She was genuinely sweet and reserved (very approachable), and encouraged me to take my time and look around. We started to chat and she took a chance knowing I wanted something simple, yet she pulled a gorgeous 3 sided diamond, 1 1/2 carats. I tried it on and she shared the story behind this ring; David Kruger designed it for his wife for their 40th wedding anniversary. This is not something I would have picked out, but once I tried it on I knew it was the ring. I love it! The price was not within my budget, however they were willing to negotiate to make sure I got the ring I wanted. The Krugers staff helped to ensure the fit was perfect. I went back a couple of times to review the fit and they sized it at no charge. I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to go through this experience with. I would highly recommend Krugers. I was even more happy to know they are here to stay for many years. Anytime I'm around I can visit to get my rings cleaned (no charge). Oh, they even cleaned my engagement ring, which unfortunately was not purchased at Krugers. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/3/2013

We went to Kruger's because we wanted to change my engagement ring and re-size my wedding band which had become too small after 30 years. We could not have been more pleased with everything. We didn't have any idea exactly what we hoped to leave with. Zoe listened to us carefully and guided us expertly through all of our transactions. The new diamond ring, the re-sized wedding band, and especially the beautiful amethyst necklace that my old diamond is now a part of are everything we had hoped for and more. We were more than a little worried we could not afford what we wanted. The price for everything was well within our budget and the final products are absolutely amazing. I hope that we can purchase more jewelry with David and Zoe again soon. more

Everybody at Kruger's is very helpful and willing to help in any way. David is great! Sam has always done an amazing job with my jewelry. From resizing to cleaning super glue off off my brand new ring And even recreating a ring. I will always be a customer more

Editorial review from Citysearch 12/14/2012

The jeweler, Sam, at Kruger's did an exquisite job on my Tacori setting. Tacori said that the ring could not be resized but after my finger jammed, my ring would not fit. Sam made the repair virtally undetectable. Grateful to Kruger's and Sam!! more

Wow! 4/25/2012

I have a pair of beautiful, large (2.5 carats/each) yellow diamonds. I needed them mounted in a setting that would show the beauty of the diamonds, but also be very versatile - something I could wear while running at Town Lake, lunch with friends, or to a cocktail party at night. Pros: null Cons: null more

Beautiful craftsmanship 9/14/2011

I brought in a mixed bag of old jewelry that I didn't wear anymore and tasked Sam, the jeweler, with building me a beautiful ring. What I really appreciated is that when Kruger's called me with a quote- they provided two different options. One quote was to build it in platinum and the other was for 14k white gold. I opted to have them build it out of platinum. From the time I called them to pull the trigger on building the ring it took 9 days to finish. The final ring is BEAUTIFUL!!!! You would never know it was made from "spare parts." Sam did an amazing job with my ring. I cannot wait for my next purchase. :) more

Kruger's: Repair Cost 5/4/2011

I recently had ring repaired that was a family heirloom. I was expecting the repairs to be much more expensive than I was charged. Their service was excellent. more

Amazing experience 1/18/2011

The staff A Kruger is amazing- Zoe and Rachel are great at explaining all facets in purchasing a diamond. If you want a pleasant shopping experience I recommend Kruger, their approach un-like their competitor is genuinely warm. more

GREAT Jeweler Sam 11/12/2010

The best part about this jewelry "store" is the wonderful jeweler Sam. My fiance ordered the engagement ring and band from another company through Kruger, and the two did not match well (they were ordered separately). Everyone seemed skeptical about it being able to be fixed, but the jeweler -- who did a PERFECT job fixing it! Kruger even allowed the fix at no charge since it wasn't matched up correctly to start with. more

You owe it to yourself to buy with Kruger's. 10/30/2010

Our experience with Kruger's was perfect. My husband bought me a anniversary three stone ring and while we were there, found the exact gold wedding bands that we married with. My diamond ring was exactly what I wanted and I got to meet the man that was going to size it. They were so helpful and determined to get my ring just right. It is so beautiful!! more

Fantastic Work, Great People 9/13/2010

I had my wedding set done at Krugers a couple of years ago and have been using them for all of my jewelry needs ever since. more

Austin's Best Jeweler 8/3/2010

Kruger's has always been my jewelry store of choice because of my longstanding friendship with David, however I, generally deal with Jennifer Crews, although if she is not in everyone else is very helpful. Jennifer always knows what I have bought in the past, and what I like and don't like. I recently needed a ring for my wife's birthday, and it had to be specially made. Jennifer patiently worked with us to come up with the design and Sam Cisneros made the ring to perfection. Pros: Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Cons: None more

Getting a watchband replaced while on vacation 8/1/2010

I was in Austin on vacation with a watch with a broken band. Just before heading to the airport I decided to give Kruger's a try at fixing it. I went in and got immediate, thorough help and a great band that looked a lot better than the old, broken one. The staff was friendly and conversational and made sure I didn't sit on a cat curled up on a chair. I was in and out in a jiffy with plenty of time to get to the airport. I would definitely use Kruger's again. Pros: Friendly, knowledgeable, professional, local Cons: None more

Austin's Best Jeweler 6/4/2010

I just want to thank Wyatt and the rest of the jewelers at Kruegers for such great customer service. Wyatt really helped me every step of the way, giving me advice and had no problem meeting my deadline. The ring he helped me with is absolutely perfect for my gal. Plus--even though I didn't know the right jewelry lingo--he knew exactly what I was talking about! Can't say enough about how well I was taken care of. My fiance and I are going back to get our wedding bands through them. Pros: Customer Service, quality, appraisal, etc Cons: What are the drawbacks? more

Owner Message

  • Kruger's is staffed by the greatest retail associates in Austin, plain and simple. Several of these folks have been in the jewelry industry for more than 30 years. Above all, they are customer-centric, meaning they know it's about the customer, not the sale. You will experience patient, attentive-without-being-pushy assistance that will guide you to the perfect piece of jewelry at or below your budget. If you can't find what you want in the store, we can source your request from a number of vendors. Kruger's also boasts two very fine, highly skilled jewelers who are able to handle just about any custom design or repair you can imagine. We promise that your Kruger's experience will be the most pleasurable retail experience you will ever have. Kruger's has been around for more than a hundred years.

Owner David Kruger, his daughter Rachel and the rest of the Kruger's Jewelers' staff — several boasting tenures of over 20 years with the store — understand the significance of shopping for high quality diamond jewelry. It's not something one does every day, or, in many cases, more than once or twice in a lifetime. We have great respect for the process and are honored to be a part of it. But what about the goods? Kruger's offers the largest selection of certified loose diamonds in Austin. We also carry the most exclusive collection of non-branded bridal mountings in town. We source from vendors who don't sell to other local jewelers, making our stock particularly unique. If you don't see what you're looking for, we will be happy to create a custom piece for you. Kruger's specializes in bridal jewelry because we absolutely love helping couples find the perfect symbols of their love. Our staff spends a lot of time providing you with detailed information about diamonds and settings whether you purchase from us or not. We are also keenly aware of your budget. Need an engagement ring for $400? No problem. Want to stun her with a $40,000 thing of beauty? We can do that, too. We are family-owned, local and all about making customers. And that means anyone who walks through the door, regardless of whether money changes hands or not. We want you to have the best retail experience of your life and turn around and tell everyone you know about it. Stop by to get your watch fixed, shop for something for your mom, or browse our selection of wedding bands to see how they compare to others you've found. We look forward to seeing you. . For the finest retail experience anywhere,as well as stellar merchandise to accommodate any budget. When you experience Kruger's,the difference between us and every other jewelry store in town becomes clear.

This is because Kruger's is local,family-owned and has been around for four generations. We make sure that everyone who walks through the door receives the kind of down-to-earth,engaged attention that's kept Kruger's going strong for over one hundred years. Our longevity and success is largely due to our committed staff,including those who have been with us for almost four decades. That kind of dedication lies at the heart of who we are and what we're about. We focus on bridal jewelry,walking couples through the process of finding the perfect rings to symbolize their love. Choosing engagement and wedding bands can be time-consuming and sometimes overwhelming; we use our expertise to make this an enjoyable experience instead. We always respect your budget and will work with you to find the perfect jewelry in your price range. Our goal is to help you make the most informed decision possible. Owner David Kruger has been buying only the highest quality diamonds for over 40 years. If you have any questions,David is almost always in the store (when he isn't fishing) and looks forward to talking diamonds and diamond jewelry with you when you come in. Kruger's is grateful to the Austin community for its many years of devoted support. David,his daughter Rachel and the rest of the Kruger's Jewelers staff devote time and money to many local and national nonprofit organizations — especially those focused on hunger relief and children — as a way of giving back.
