Rare find in any business 2/1/2012

I am so very appreciative of all the information he took the time to give me. He really took the time to educate me on selling a family heirloom in the jewelry business (which I had zero knowledge of) and left me feeling enlightened. Because of the nature and reasoning behind the sale of my jewelry I simply felt greatful that he would offer his help. It's a rare find in business these days that anyone will spend any time with you at all much less do it for free with no hopes of making a profit. Very very grateful. He went above and beyond for my family. more

GREAT SERVICE!!!! 8/15/2010

I must say, even though he moved to San Antonio and he knew the chances of me going down there were slim, he still helped me out. He gave me a LOT of advice on how to sell a piece of jewelry I was trying to sell. If I were closer I would not hesitate to take my business to him. Thanks for all your help!!\r \r -Allen more

Amazing Advice--Not in it just for the money 12/29/2008

While looking for a jewelry appraisal, I happened upon T D Wernick Inc. Other stores were happy to accept $200 an hour or more to look at my piece, but this place was different (and much more reasonable). Instead of pushy tactics, I received advice on how to approach the vendor from which we purchased the piece and obtain a statement of replacement value. I may not need T D Wernick's services now, but you can be sure if I need an appraisal in the future, I will be contacting them again. Thank you T D Wernick Inc. Pros: Honest, Helpful, Knowledgeable more

Great advice 10/5/2008

I did alot of research while I was looking to buy a diamond, but TD managed to fill in some of the gaps in my understanding. He thoroughly understood the industry and gave me candid advice without any strings attached other than to write a review on Citysearch. He's a very knowledgeable guy who's willing to educate anyone looking for a diamond. I highly recommend anyone looking to buy a diamond to contact TD. more

Quick-witted and brutally honest, TD gives it to you straight 6/9/2008

I called TD based on a recommendation from a friend who used him several years ago. I was not disappointed with his breadth of knowledge or candor. I researched diamonds extensively before selecting one to purchase and was honestly just looking for an appraiser to rubber stamp the deal and say it was good. TD did not let me get away with that. He challenged each aspect of my purchase to ensure I knew what I was getting. He also suggested different qualities of diamonds to consider and ways to squeeze the diamond vendor to get maximum value for my money. A call to TD is well worth it for anyone considering a diamond purchase. more

Knowledgeable, clear, refreshingly generous 6/4/2008

A friend recommended TD to me when I had a need to find out if some old gold leaf product I had was the real deal. He spent time with me on the phone educating me about the process of determining the value of what I had, and openly shared the path he'd take to getting a quality bid for the material. His thoughtful and generous assistance was refreshing in an industry that people have come to feel very cautious around. I fully recommend TD Wernick and will be returning to him when I have any jewelry-related question. more

Sound advice from an undisputed expert 5/7/2008

i do not know d*** about diamonds or jewelry...but after a brief and very informative conversation with TD, i feel i am better equipped to make informative decisions about buying, selling, or having stones appraised. TD was extremely honest and friendly, and was empathetic to my situation (i am not wealthy by any stretch of the imagination). Although he has sadly relocated to San Antonio, he gave me a great referral to a local Austin jeweler whom he compared to a mechanic (as opposed to a salesman). I would recommend speaking with TD before doing ANYTHING regarding jewels. His advice was completely honest and unsolicited. I have not done any prior business with TD but he treated me like a friend or lifelong customer. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Pros: extremely knowlegable and honest Cons: not in austin anymore :( more

Best Jeweler Ever! 3/21/2008

TD was very informative and a pleasure to speak with. His witty analogies and knowledge both impressed me and informed me on how to get rid of my girlfriend's old wedding band and engagement ring. The news wasn't great (for her), and I appreciated his candor. I will be calling him when I'm ready to propose and trust that I will be in good hands. more

Best customer service 12/5/2007

TD was so incredibly patient and willing to help even though I had a million questions. He took the time to explain everything in detail and tell me about all my options. I would definitely recommend talking to him before making any decisions. It's great to finally get some real honest advice for once. I feel much more confident now about my decision and definitely more knowledgeable. He definitely knows what he is talking about and will give it to you straight forward. more

Talk about 'all that' he'd be the 'only' person I'd consider to work with!! 8/27/2007

If EVER you want any 'real' information this guy is absolutely fabulous. He doesn't even know me, this was just on the phone and a SUNDAY at that. I'm telling ya he truly is 'all that'. He gave me soo much information and he really wanted to educate me so I'd feel good bout whatever decision I make. I'm new to the Texas area and if this is the way you do bizzz I can understand why all of us Californians are moving here. I can't wait to do bizz with him and anyone else who truly appreciates honestly this is you man. Pros: makes you feel as if you are family but waaay to knowledgeable Cons: NOT!!! more

T.D. Knows How to Get Things 8/24/2007

Like Morgan Freeman in The Shawshank Redemption, T.D. is a man who knows how to get things. My fiancee has, shall we say, selective tastes. We went through store after store without finding the right ring. Mr. Wernick found us the right ring in the first batch of pictures he sent out... just the right ring at quite a nice price. \r \r T.D. has recently relocated to San Antonio, this is a great loss to Austin.\r more

Best Jeweler I have ever talked to! 8/21/2007

I called TD wanting to sell a diamond ring. After nearly 40 minutes on the phone, I hung up and felt like I had to re-hash what just happened. I stared at the phone with a blank look on my face and just thought to myself ""WOW""...This guy is for real. He spent so much time talking about the process and the ""Dancing with Wolves and Swimming with Sharks"" that I felt like he was truly on my side. He told me what to look out for when I do decide to sell and he gave me some homework (that I have hated all my life - thank you very much) and like most homework, I'll find an excuse to get out of it. Anyway, I think when I do decide to sell (he also told me about the times of the year that are good to sell and the times that are bad) I will go directly to him. I cannot say enough about his humor (dry - but that's what I like) and the length of time he spent on the phone with me. It's not an easy decision to make (to sell a ring that means so much to my wife) but he has made the pain a little easier with his genuine concern and overwhelming knowledge of the business. You have to call TD if you are buying or selling because he will educate you on the entire process. You just don't find too many people like him that have the advantage or ability to take advantage of you but choose not to. I'm done but I don't feel like I have done this man the justice he deserves. Sean Pros: The BEST there is! Cons: His store is not closer to my house! more

Call before you buy 8/13/2007

Before you buy any type of jewelry, you have to give TD a call. He will take the emotion out of the process to make sure you are getting what you think you are before you write the check. He will give you his time and experience to help guide you in making a good purchase. Great personality and knows his profession. Don't make a buying mistake, call TD before you buy. more

TD is a Supreme Advocate! 7/13/2007

When I walked in TD's door I knew just enough about diamond rings to be dangerous to myself. TD took the time to properly educate me on the meaningful elements and oft-missed pitfalls of making such a significant purchase. By the time I made my final selection I felt absolutely confident that I understood the diamond and the ring inside & out. TD advocated for me, above and beyond the call of duty, and I have never felt so confident in making such a major investment.\r \r You would do well to spend time with TD, understand the exacting standards he applies when evaluating jewelry, and employ his expertise when making your purchase or creating an original piece. TD is truly a supreme advocate and I am much better off, and my fiancee is absolutely thrilled, as a result of working with him to make the most important jewelry purchase of my life!\r \r Thanks for everything, TD. Pros: Unmatched jewelry expertise; highly ethical; very attentive service; applies the highest standards to the craft. more

Best jeweler 6/28/2007

Mr. Wernick was the only person in the Austin/San Antonio (Texas) area who was able to help me to find exactly what I needed. He recognized my needs (quality, style and budget) and he found the most beautiful piece that I could ever imagine for a very reasonable price. I am amazed that there are still jewelers like him. You must contact him before you spend a lot of money somewhere else, because I know he will have the perfect piece for you for a much reasonable price. more

TD Rocks!!!!! 6/10/2007

Mr. Wernick was extremely helpful and knowledgably. Also, he provided information on various ways I may be able to sell my jewelry, even if that meant I might not use his services. If you are in the market to sell your diamond jewelry, I would highly recommend T.D. more

Honest, helpful, knows what he's talking about! 5/20/2007

\r T.D. is very honest, fair, and down to earth person, very knowledgeable on his line of work, very fair with what he charges and he will take his time to teach you a few things about appraisals. I highly recommend him!\r more

TD is honest and passionate about his work 2/18/2007

TD is the best and most honest appraiser and gemologist in Texas. He is extremely knowledgeable in his craft and very passionate about his worth and work. He is an artist in his profession. TD explains everything he is doing with your pieces right in front of you and teaches as he appraises. His written appraisal is concise and fair. He loves his work and it shows. Pros: good parking and easy to find more
