    I got my fiances engagement ring appraised today by Dave! He was very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with!

  • *****

    I had a ring made for our 25th annv. It was so perfect, I'm having some more work done for me.

  • *****

    A beautiful store with timely, courteous, and knowledgeable service!

    I stopped in briefly for a repair, fully prepared to come back in a week or so to pick up my jewelry. David fixed it in less than ten minutes, with expert precision and patience!

    To top it all off, his beautiful pup kept me company while I waited!

    He was honest with me, which I sincerely appreciated, about the full scope of repair my piece would need in the future. He gave me an informal estimate and was so kind in regards to the quality of the piece and its sentimentality.

    A friend and neighbor recommended I stop here for my repair and I'm so glad she did! I have other sentimental pieces that need care and repair, so I'll be back to this wonderful neighborhood jeweler.

    David, the Proprietor and Chief Gemologist, explained to me that 10k and below would generally constitute "scrap", that his amazing dog, is a Bulldog- not a "pug"; and simplistic science- as it would pertain to chromophores in Allow-chromatic gem minerals... and his demeanor and lack of condescension, fell heir to each subject. If he was not happy to avail his time and expertise, to assist an absolute novice, like myself, I could not distinguish otherwise. As such, he aided selection, knowledge and sizing- to an absolutely beautiful(in my humble opinion), topaz ring; and Sterling Bracelet, respectively (will include photos)... along with other small projects- which henceforth, will most definitively amalgamate into larger projects... David likes to "throw shiny [ gorgeous ] stones"... I like to see, what one will do with little... Great guy/breathtaking selection and kindness/cannot speak highly enough; via ink.

    Great jeweler. Very flexible, and helpful. Quick turn around on sizing and other repairs. Fun selection of peices at all price points. Knowledgeable owner and staff.

  • *****

    I love this jewelry store! They have such an excellent selection, reasonable prices and amazing, helpful staff. If you miss the Silver store that used to be in White Flint, this is the same owner, but the store is now much bigger and offers much more. Totally different look and feel. This is where I go for any purchases, repairs, etc. The new location is great. Go check them out!

  • *****

    I had a few diamonds reset into a new ring. David very patiently looked at many designs with me, and helped me decide on the perfect setting. The work was done in a very reasonable time, and I had it before a big event I really wanted to wear it to.

  • *****

    David is an extremely honest and fair jeweler. He has custom made many pieces for me and I have loved all of them. He also donated several pieces to our daughters' school for their annual fundraising gala. I will never trust anyone else with my jewelry purchases again.

  • *****

    David fixed my watch and made it look brand new! Fantastic work done here. Thank you.

  • *****

    I have known David from many years. He is the Best! I would never think of taking any repair to anyone else. His merchandise is top notch!

  • *****

    Knowledgeable and wonderfully pleasent staff with an amazing array of stock. It's a sparkling gem of a jewelry store on the pike.

  • *****

    Great people with exquisite taste in jewelry, always working to make you feel special about your event and your purchase. One of a kind items that will make your wedding ???? sparkle! Ask for David! He is patient and helped me find just the right thing for my wife! Thank you Jewelry Design!!!

  • *****

    David did a wonderful job appraising some of my late mom's pieces for her estate. He also had 2 of her rings sized to fit me. Professional, experienced, knowledgeable and personable.
    I would certainly do business with him again.

  • *****

    After searching extensively for someone to set our loose diamond for my engagement ring, we finally found David and trusted him immediately to design a custom ring for us. He is extremely knowledgable about his business and pricing was very fair. He was able to help us design a ring that is dainty and beautiful, but also durable and secure. The finished product went above and beyond what I had imagined and we could not be happier!

  • *****

    I have done business w/ David for over 30 years. My last purchase was a set of beautifully-matched, LARGE pearls for my wife.

  • *****

    They sold me my first diamond ring 25 yrs ago. They sold me a new one five years ago.

  • *****

    28 years ago David sold me my engagement ring and bands. Three years ago, we repeated the process. Yep. After 25 years, I still remembered Jewelry Design Co. Since then he has sold the same items to an associate of mine, as well as a set of pearls for my wife.
    If I recommend someone, you can bet he's good!

  • *****

    What an excellent jewelry store. They did an awesome job resizing of a couple of antique rings for me. They paid amazing attention to detail. The quality and level of service are outstanding, not to mention how nice they treat everyone.

  • *****

    my fiance and i stumbled upon this shop by blind chance, and i am glad we did! david was super helpful, took his time explaining our options, and we decided on a custom design, which only took a week or so to prepare, and came out looking gorgeous! she gets compliments all the time, and i couldn't be happier! i wouldn't shop for jewelry anywhere else.

  • *****

    David is fantastic. He is my go to man for jewelry hands down

  • *****

    My fiance and I came across the Jewelry Design Company in doing research for a jewelry store that would be able to make a customized wedding ring for me. I wanted something that would complement my engagement ring in look, size, and style. David was always very patient and a good listener as I described my vision. I dealt with several jewelers along the way and David was one of the most patient and understanding people I've met. As a visual person, I drew what I wanted on a piece of paper and David asked questions to make sure he was following along. Even though it took several times before David's jeweler got the design right, David would call me occasionally to report on the progress. The finished product turned out beautifully and I look forward to using David in the future for any custom jewelry needs.

  • *****

    David, the owner, sold me an engagement ring 27 years ago, and the wedding bands. Three years ago, we repeated the process. Then he sold one of my associates the same items, on my recommendation. I am not easily pleased, and always eager to flame and complain, but in this case I have nothing but good things to say.

    This week I am getting pearls from David.

    Service is always flawless, and he takes the time to explain what you are getting.
    Beats the hell out of some chain store staffed with minions who don't know what they are selling.

  • *****

    Large variety of quality gems in unique and tasteful settings. Very helpful people.

    I learned about David through wedding dress shopping with a few girlfriends at David's Bridal. He has a cute little store and even cuter pups that great you at the door. My fianc and I started researching rings about a year ago and visited a total of 5 different stores. Here's what you need to know about this place:

    - David really listens to what you want and tries to see if there is a pre-existing setting so that you won't get charged the $750 fee for designing a custom ring.
    - He's honest with you and tells you what will look good (I wanted a basket but needed a bigger center stone than we could afford), what is structurally sound (I wanted a delicate setting that only touched right under the stone without the sides touching), what will cause you to come back for frequent repairs and replacements (eternity bands)
    - You can give him an overall budget and he'll work with you. He brought in 5 different stones of various sizes, colors, cuts, and clarity to show what we could get in our price range. They also carry second hand diamonds that offer you a bit more wiggle room.
    - He knew I was picky and instead of rushing me, he made sure I was involved with every step of the process, much to my fianc's dismay, and made sure I was happy before proceeding.
    - Within 1.5 months of almost weekly visits, we were able to sketch out the design, pick a diamond, have a drawing made, wax mold made, and ring made.
    - The appraisal was included.
    - No tax if you live in DC
    - They give you the ring in a cute slender box which makes it easier to hide and propose with

    Take aways: come here if you want someone who is honest, fair, and will give you a great deal. We've already referred at least 5 couples here and will definitely be going back to get our wedding bands made.

    Jewelry Design Co. offers an amazing array of gorgeous jewelry, the best advice, and personalized service that makes every customer feel valued. It is without question my favorite place to shop; even browsing is a warm and welcoming experience. You will not find a better jewelry store in Montgomery County.

  • *****

    David is wonderful. It's so refreshing to find a business that truly believes in and practice superior customer service. I had a problem with a gift someone bought me from here. I went in, explained the issue and it was quickly resolved.

    There were an assortment of different materials and metals to choose from in various sizes and colors. I saw a lot of unique and interesting pieces. Price ranges from inexpensive to pricey. There's custom options as well. I will def. be back to do some shopping.

  • *****

    Skilled, honest, fair prices, personal service. Close by in my neighborhood. I am a customer, not a paid reviewer.

  • *****

    When my partner and I were shopping for wedding bands, we luckily had this store on our list. David and his staff, including the dogs, were welcoming and attentive. The customer service did not stop after our purchase was complete. I was not satisfied with the size, width or depth of my band and David calmly explained the re-sizing process for each adjustment and took care of everything. Our rings are wonderful! Thank you!

    We shopped around at the typical stores- Jared's, Kay Jewelers, Radcliffe Jewelers, etc and some not well known (Liljenquist & Beckstead) when we went to The Jewelry Design Co. At the time, the shop was still in White Flint Mall and he had competition in the form of another jewelry store across the hall. What all the stores lack, The Jewelry Design Co. certainly makes up for. David is so patient, and put up with so many opinions, changing of minds, frequent trips to try on rings, even allowing me to start designing my own ring and then deciding against it. David has a ton of variety- artisanal, vintage, traditional, modern, Art Deco, and many more. If you think of it, he has it. You're in for superb customer service when you decide to shop here. The store may look nondescript on the outside, but give it a chance and head inside and you will see his impeccable taste shine through. The Jewelry Design Co. is your one stop shop for engagement rings, wedding rings, anniversary, and more. I can't wait to get my matching band and fiancé's wedding band from him. David is the best!

  • *****

    Fast, friendly, convenient, & even affordable! The owner was warm & obviously skilled at what he does. There's also a fabulous selection in fine jewelry... I will return & I highly recommend that you stop by!

    David is a jewel himself. He created a lovely necklace for me from my Grammy's engagement ring and repaired two family heirloom rings. Put your trust in him and you'll be delighted!
