  • From start to finish, Mike has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Throughout the entire process he was extremely attentive, helpful, and knowledgeable. My engagement ring is absolutely stunning and I owe Mike the credit for creating it exactly how I envisioned. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking to work with an honest and all around amazing person who wants the time and attention to detail that they deserve. Thank you again Mike!

  • Going into this process, I was clueless. I made a budget and planned to go to Tiffanys, Zales, or Jared. I went to a couple boutiques to see what was offered when a friend referred me to Smale Jewelers. Before going, I notified the owner of the types of cuts I was interested in so he could have the inventory ready. When I got there, what I was shown was diamonds with almost no imperfections(certainly none visible to the naked eye) in the cuts and sizes requested. We then went through the process where he was extremely honest about how an increase in size would not make much of a difference in how it looked from 1.75 to 2 but would make a large difference in price. He was flexible around my schedule, when I was in town(I do not live close by), and just genuinely helpful throughout the entire sale. I can honestly say that I spent probably half of my budget and got 2x what I was looking for at the other jewelers. If anyone asks my advice, I would tell people you are crazy and... Read more

  • Mike worked with me and my fiance to create a custom engagement ring. He let my fiance borrow a beautiful replica to propose with, then he designed the actual ring exactly the way I wanted. He was flexible, worked quickly, and made sure everything was perfect. He took time to explain each detail to us. Excellent jeweler!

  • Mike was very professional and knew exactly what my fiance wanted for my engagement ring. He was very flexible with meeting with us when it was convenient to us. Doing business with an in-home jeweler was an amazing experience! Mike was very personal and truly cared about our wants and needs. My ring is absolutely gorgeous! I couldn't be happier with the quality of the ring and the wonderful service Mike provided. We loved him so much, we are going back for our wedding bands! I would not choose any other Jeweler for such an important purchase. As I told my fiance, this is something I will wear every day for the rest of my life! Every detail matters, and Mike was there to accommodate to anything we wished. A wonderful experience!

  • Mike Smale was great to deal with. I went to him because I wanted to add/customize my original wedding ring and band. He came up with some great ideas and it turned out absolutely BEAUTIFUL. A few years later I ended up using him again to have him re-design my husband's band. Once again he came up with some really great ideas and the band turned out great! I would definitely recommend him!

  • After being disappointed by the quality and sales people at Retail Stores. I was very pleased working with Mike. He was very personable and took his time with me. Mike met all of my needs and expectations. Mike helped me in selecting a ring best suited for my fiance to be. I was very happy getting a ring and diamond I wanted not guessing at a retail store. The price range I requested was dead on and I could not have been happier with the results. I would recommend Mike "VERY HIGHLY" for QUALITY and CUSTOMER SERVICE.

  • Mike was a pleasure to work with. He was flexible with appointment times, meeting with us on the weekend since we don't live closeby. Very paitent as we rolled through various options, listening and presenting different rings and ideas to help us hone in on our perfect rings. more relaxing that sitting in a mall store and I am sure a better value for the end product. Even offered to work on desiging a custom ring, but we found what we wanted in the standard offerings. Have no reservations recommending Mike to any bride and groom to be.

  • Working with Mike was a pleasure. From the very beginning we discussed multiple options for engagement ring and wedding band designs. After reviewing numerous ring, band, and diamond options, we decided to deviate from the standard designs commonly found in stores and pursued a custom design. We entrusted our own hand-sketched design to Mike because of his professionalism and commitment to making sure that the design was brought to life with complete satisfaction. Mike met with us multiple times during the design process to review the wax carving progress to confirm that we were satisfied with his work. Upon completing the wax molds, he kept us informed on the casting process and the final detail work he performed prior to us receiving the completed ring and band. The overall process of the custom design went smoothly and was completed timely. The quality of the ring and band is as high as could be. The overall price of our ring and band were equal to that of standard r... Read more

  • I was referred to Mike by another very satisfied customer. He worked with me to incorporate a family stone from an antique ring into a contemporary design. Working with Mike was easy and straightforward and together we created a one-of-a-kind design within an afternoon. My rings are beautiful and unique and I have received many compliments on the look and design.

  • Mike Smale worked on getting me a custom made "Push" present that included gems and diamonds that I provided. The pendant he made me came out fantastic and was exactly what I wanted. Not only was he extremely professional, but he was very friendly and you can definitely expect me to work with him again when I need another piece of jewelry. Thanks Mike!

  • I was looking for an engagement ring for my girlfriend at the time (now fiance) and was hoping to find a local knowledgeable jeweler who I could trust. At the time I knew relatively little about engagement rings, and after reading several positive reviews for Smale Jewelers decided to contact them. At our first meeting we discussed what I suspected my fiance was looking for, the general "process", as well my price range. Following this meetings Smale Jewelers found several diamonds that fit my criteria, and at a later meeting we looked at each and he discussed the pro's and con's of each. What is unique about Smale Jewelers is that at this point a band can be designed to create a one-of-a-kind ring (though as expected the more work required to design the band, the higher the price). Smale Jewelers was extremely approachable, responsive, and sensitive to my constraints. I would highly recommend Smale Jewelers, particularly if you are looking for something unique.

  • I had a prior engagement ring that I wanted to disassemble to make a unique ring for everyday wear, this was not for a special occasion or event. Since I had the metal and the diamonds I thought a custom ring was the way to go. Smale jewelers was not only super responsive, but had design options made up for me and emailed within a few days of me contacting him. The ring turned out beautiful and the best thing of all is that it is unique, not something off the shelf at a jewelry store. I think the reason for my 3.5 stars on value is that I was hoping to re-utilize my metal to save money which I couldn't. While the jewler gave me an option to turn in the metal, the trade in value was not really worth it.
