“I was unsure at first but the huge choice of diamonds and ring settings, as well as the many positive reviews, eventually convinced me. Delivery was super fast and the ring is exactly as described, pictures are 100% accurate and real. Customer service is reliable, kind, and fast. Would definitely recommend James Allen and will certainly come back.”
“My fiancé loved the ring! In the end, that’s all that matters, right? James Allen made the process a lot easier. I had the GIA number verified at a local jeweler, just for my own peace of mind and the jeweler spoke highly of the ring’s construction and quality. Thanks, James Allen.”
“I loved the ability to pick and choose, the sizing chart on my phone was awesome and saved going into a shop front to find out what the size actually was. Customer service was awesome and they always got back to me in a timely manner. Shipping was super quick to Australia and well packaged.”
“My compliments to the James Allen staff. Not only were we very satisfied with the engagement and wedding band purchases, but the service was exceptional, easy and worry free. I will be back for additional jewelry soon. Thank you.”
“I was skeptical, the rings that I saw at the mall and various shops did not seem as high quality as the rings displayed on James Allen. I had help from a live online customer representative who asked the right questions and had a kind demeanor. The ring looked even better in person when it arrived. My fiancé and family LOVED it. Choose James Allen, you won’t regret it.”
