Don't sell jewelry here 11/15/2011

Horrible place, very untrustworthy. Had a diamond set that I was looking to sell. (orig 3000) The guy gave me some story about it being an old cut and how the diamond market was swamped with diamonds and offered me 250 for the set. I walked out immediately, feeling a scam. It was. I took it to a pawn shop and the guy was really nice and told me that my best bet was a private sell. He could not offer me what I could get for it, that I should be getting 2000 as the diamond was very near perfect quality. He said that his guidlines being in a pawn shop were that he had to offer below 50% of what he could even start at selling it at so could only offer 500. That was double what Porcello's offered. If you are going to low ball people and rip them off, be honest about it, don't sound like a swarmy car salesman and tell them lies about their product. Shame! more

Absolutely Honest 10/30/2011

I mailed in some jewelry and didn’t realize I’d stuck my dads highschool ring in there. Boy was my mom hot. I called them right away and they sent it back immediately – two days turnaround from the time they received the package. Can’t thank you enough – you saved me. more

Pleasure to work with 9/8/2011

With the price of gold being absolutely crazy nowadays, I figured it was time to get rid of some of the jewelry we'll never use and get a few bucks in the process. The folks at Porcello were great! I never felt like they were trying to cheat me out of my money and after doing some research, I am confident that they didn't. I'm pleased that I was able to get rid of some stuff that will never be worn and make quite a bit of money to use toward Christmas. more

Super Helpful 8/23/2011

My brother and I went Dutch to get our mom a bracelet for her birthday. We chose Porcello because he got his engagement ring there and new the folks there would treat us right. He wasn’t lying! Good folks and a great selection, just what a girl wants from a jewelry store. more

Wonderful Jewelry Experience 8/8/2011

I went into Porcello’s to get my wife a bracelet for our anniversary. Admittedly, I was a little nervous and intimidated - it’d been years since I was last in a jewelry store and I’d figured getting the right engagement ring had just been blind luck. It was great to have my anxiety completely blown away by a staff that - dare I say - cared about me as a customer. They knew my budget and took the time to work with me to find a bracelet that my wife absolutely loved. I hope my wife isn’t expecting this kind of purchase regularly, but I know that next time, I will darn sure be shopping at Porcello’s. more

Like going to a car dealership 7/7/2011

Be-ware, first comes the friendly intro's trained to make you feel all warm and fuzzy, then they start, like a used car, they find all that is wrong with your jewelry, and proceed to devalue. It doesn't matter if your piece is worth 800.00 or 8,000.00 the magic 300.00 to 400.00 for your item is what they offer once they've made you feel your valued item is simply unworthy of them, and they could make whatever you have for a fraction. They are pompus Thieves. more

Best Experience I've ever had 1/31/2011

I went into Porcello Jewelers and had the best experience I've ever had with a jeweler. I sold some of my old jewelry and got a great price for them, and stuck around and bought some new items. Looking forward to going back next time I need something. more

Like Family 1/2/2011

This is a wonderful store. They have some excellent values--particularly for Bellevue. What's most excellent about Porcello is the service. It's a family owned business, and they treat us like their best customers every time we walk in. more

Horrible service! 12/18/2010

The first time I went in after getting a diamond appraised at a different company, I wanted to sell the diamond. The man I talked to seemed pretty nice, however offered a VERY low amount. I understood this and took it as him just doing his job. Told him I would talk to the owner that I was selling it for then get back to him. Once I made my way back later int he week, he told me that I must be mistaken at the price we had 'agreed' on earlier and that he wanted to buy it for even less. I wasn't happy but kept my composure and was nice. Told him I just had to check with the owner to see if the new amount was OK. While I walked away and was on the phone in a quiet corner of the store, the guy gets out of his chair and yells across the store! He said he didn't need to buy the diamond and he had business that he could be doing instead of dealing with 'this'. He was a complete prick. I collected the diamond and we left. The guy was trying to cheat me out of the the cost of the diamond so he could make almost 400% mark up. I understand They have to make money and expected a low ball deal but I might as well been throwing the diamond out the freaking window! more
