  • NONE
  • Rude, unprofessional, damage your keepsakes

I do not tout myself as an educated jeweler, nor do I hold a IJO membership, nor do I claim goldsmith expertise as their website does “study goldsmithing in Valenza, Italy, famous for it's gold craftsmanship.....staffed with an experienced jeweler and goldsmith”, but even I know that Gold is a malleable medal, that if forced on to a harder medal will dent or bend.

Upon visiting the store in Brewster NY, the owner, who should be the most knowledgably, was rude and persistent in an offensive and damaging manner. Insisting that my wife was incorrect on her ring size, he proceeded to force her white gold wedding band onto a steel ring sizer, as she continually asked him to stop numerous times, resulting in the ring being damage with two scratches/indents. I feel that this gentleman proceeded to force the ring on the sizer because he would not admit he was wrong on the size of my wife’s band. The owner throughout the process kept insisting that my wife was a smaller ring size, conveniently for the store this would require a custom piece to be made which means more money.

I am not a jeweler but sizing a ring is a very basic aspect of the profession and Daniel Jewelers in Brewster NY is unable to provide the most basic of services. I would warn anyone to not use this business for buying or repairing jewelry considering they are unable to size a ring without damaging the piece.

A review describing the same situation has been sent to the IJO (Independent Jewelers Organization), with questions on their membership qualifications and code of conduct with hopes they will more closely review the membership of Daniel Jewelers.

Business owner response:
THIS IS NOT THE DANIEL I KNOW. This review definately does not sound like the person I know and have dealt with for so many years. Was this ring ever left for a repair???
