RECOMENDATIONS AND REVIEWS

Below are recommendations from attorneys that use my professional services for any jewelry related issue (for additional recommendations, please see Reviews). I can make myself available at short notice if necessary and work to make any valuation/appraisal complete and accurate without the jewelry ever leaving the sight of the owner. I am also available as an expert witness in any jewelry related issue. This is one of my areas of expertise. I have many qualifications, including a Gemological Institute of America diamond certification amongst my other credentials, and belong to many professional appraisal and jewelry organizations.

 

Also, I work with the public and my clients on valuations for insurance purposes. All valuations are accurate and, again, never leave the sight of the owner. 

All appraisals come with a photo of each item of jewelry that is valued on the valuation certificate

I took some jewelry items for appraisal to David and received a thorough meeting during which he educated me on various aspects of gemology and the appraisal process. He took his time with each piece and prepared honest and thorough appraisal documentation for me to submit to my insurance for scheduling. In perusing the fine jewelry within the store, I can say his designs are exquisite and of the highest quality in both craftsmanship and design. If I need any appraisals in the future or personally designed jewelry, David Stern will get my business.

Hi David, Ellen just left you a review I want to begin by saying that from the minute you walk in you are treated with respect and consideration. The expertise is exhibited in not only the knowledge but; also in honesty and integrity. I walked in anxious about the outcome and walked out knowing I was in the right place and in capable hands. The appraisals are of the highest professional standards and David explains everything to you. The jewelry never leaves your site Thank You So Much.

I have known David Stern for more than fifteen years. I am pleased to recommend him without hesitation. He has a well-deserved reputation for one-of-a-kind artistic creations which he produces in his store.  Over the years he has proven time and time again his knowledge and experience in every area in the jewelry industry.  He now uses his gemological knowledge and skill to assist attorneys, trust officers and money managers with jewelry valuations and appraisals to facilitate estate administrations.  David is professional and serves his clients in a timely manner with a presentation that is professional and acceptable to counsel and the courts. He is also available to serve as an expert witness.  His knowledge, talent and unique style have established him as one of the top jewelers in the region, and his integrity and work ethic are second to none. He has been in Boca Raton and Delray Beach since 1980.

Let me just start by saying I have little to no knowledge when it comes to the jewelry/diamond industry, so purchasing an engagement ring for my girlfriend of 3 years was one of the most stressful situations I have had to deal with in a while! I found David through a google search that I did while looking for a reputable diamond appraisal outfit in Boca Raton. I purchased a loose diamond from an out of state dealer that was not known personally to me so I depended on David's expertise 100% when making my decision. He took 2 hours out of his busy schedule to do the appraisal himself and advise me on all aspects of the diamond and the value of said stone. David held my hand through the entire process to say the least! I proceeded to purchase the diamond. With only a photo and a description of the perfect setting, "per my girlfriends taste", David built me a beautiful custom ring. Not to mention had it ready in time for me to propose on a vacation that we already had planned and was only a week away! When I picked the ring up I was stunned at what a great job he did with this ring it really looks fabulous and it was exactly what she wanted. I also had an insurance appraisal done on one of my Rolex's the day I picked up the ring and within an hour after leaving the store I received an email with the complete insurance appraisal for the watch. Short notice and all he really stepped up to the plate for me and I am eternally grateful to him and Colleen for everything they did for me! I would recommend David to anyone who is looking for professional jewelry appraisal services and or beautiful custom jewelry. I am more than happy with all aspects of my dealings with David and my fiancé' couldn't be happier. She absolutely loves her custom David Stern diamond engagement ring! Thanks again David and Colleen!!

David Stern is an absolute genius who can design and create the most amazingly beautiful jewelry that I have ever seen. His inventory is unlike any other jewelry store and his professionalism and knowledge is outstanding. He has a unique philosophy that "jewelry should be fun, and you should be having fun spending money, and you WILL leave the store with a smile on your face!" He has created a gorgeous ring for me after just having a conversation where I told him what I thought I wanted. His ability to take what I said and design the ring was more than I had ever expected. Not only was the ring exceptional, but his price was equally as impressive. In addition to his creative design talents, he's also a G.I.A. gemologist and regularly writes professional, accurate appraisals not only for the public but also for attorneys, and insurance companies. In my humble opinion you should definitely go to David Stern whenever you are interested in doing anything jewelry related; no matter how big or small the purchase may be. He's fantastic!

I have had the pleasure of meeting David Stern for the first time yesterday. I needed information on a ring I had received as a gift. David was kind enough to take time out of his busy day to inspect this ring. I was very impressed with his expertise and friendly . I feel comfortable to trust his expertise in all my future transactions with him. 
 
(February 2015) I recently purchased a custom designed necklace from David Stern's jewelry boutique over at Boca Grove Shops on Powerline Road. I normally but David was so incredibly helpful in helping to orient me in terms of what I needed to think about in terms of weight, quality, style, types of gemstones etc. that I had to take a moment to let the world know. The fact that he demonstrates a deep knowledge of all the 'facets' of jewelry and that he is an English gentleman makes it all the more pleasurable in buying from him. He also has this really cool collection of rare jewelry including a bracelet owned by the Czarina of Russia.• • •
 
(December 2014) I took my ruby engagement ring to David's fine jewelry store for an appraisal. Very friendly and professional staff with years of experience. David was very honest with his appraisal and very helpful and knowledgeable about gemstones. After which I asked if he can find me a ruby with better clarity, cut, and color. Without skipping a David came through with a beautiful stone that made the ring pop and so much more life. a doubt if you are looking for something beautiful, unique and quality David's store is the way to go. David for all your help!• • •
 
(July 2014) My engagement ring was stolen and I needed help with the insurance company and a replacement ring. David handled everything with the insurance company so we did not have to be bothered. He designed a beautiful, one of a kind engagement ring for me. We absolutely love it and I receive compliments everywhere I go! Thanks, David.
 
(February 2014) I recently visited David Stern Fine Jewelry and the experience was very pleasant. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I had researched several local appraisers and was fortunate to read the reviews and decided to choose his company. David and his staff delivered. They were very
 
(February 2014) I visited David Stern Fine Jewelry last week for the first time. I chose this shop because they are one of in the area that can service a Philip Stein watch. My watch crystal cracked and needed to be replaced. Originally the watch repair was my primary goal, last week I lost a diamond in my ring. Amazingly I found the diamond and immediately drove to David Stern. I was assisted by an extremely competent woman. She handled both the watch and diamond repair. On Thursday, one week later my ring was ready. David Stern repaired all the loose prongs, which are now smooth, and the stones are secure. The knowledge and craftsmanship needed for this delicate repair was evident; this beautiful ring now looks brand new. I am thrilled with the quick and level of expertise and highly recommend this shop.• • •
 
(April 2014) Purchased my engagement ring from David 5 years ago - it was his own design. The quality of the stones and elegance of the design bring compliments on a regular basis. Bought my wedding bands here as well. David is a true professional, creates a product, and stands by his work. Any adjustments or repairs he has done without question. Recently he handled a reappraisal of all of our jewelry for our insurance company. I would highly recommend David Stern - he will be your go-to jeweler after your first visit.

(June 2014) David Stern is honest, straightforward, very knowledgeable and talented. 
On the customer service side of things: David and his staff were courteous, straightforward, and open to my concerns. Any question asked was answered and explained to my satisfaction. 
At one point when I was in David’s office, he showed me some pieces that he had just finished, one of which was a stunning diamond fashion ring that was valued at $35,000. Though it was gorgeous and a fine example of his craftsmanship, it admittedly made me feel a bit out of place considering my comparatively miniscule budget so I asked him quite bluntly, “Why are you even considering doing business with me?”. His reply was something that speaks volumes about his business philosophy and his moral ground: “No job is too small.”
I felt at ease by his candor and felt that he truly valued my business, and that is exactly what I was looking for in the several-month-long search for the right jeweler and ring. There was no hiding behind a facade, and the attitude and 
I have since returned to David Stern to purchase a wedding band for myself and was met with the same great experience I expected based on my prior encounters. Despite having some jewelry with a great trade-in program at a name brand store and despite visiting a dizzying amount of jewelers to find the perfect ring, no one could match the quality of work or customer service that his shop provides. I love that he is all about making me happy and delivering a result that both he and I are proud of.
I have raved about his service to my friends and family, and I wanted to share it with the internet community as well. I would strongly recommend doing business with David Stern whether it is for a one-off custom piece like I bought, an in-stock piece he has already in his inventory to a photograph of a piece of jewelry that he can reproduce for you exactly and at a very competitive price

I am new to Florida and needed to have an appraisal done on my jewelry, I was given the name of David Stern by an acquaintance and was so pleased; his warm manner and consideration together with his expertise put me at ease. As we sat in his beautiful store in Boca Raton surrounded by exquisite jewelry, he answered all the questions I had about my items, I ended up selling him some of my pieces, his prices were very reasonable, and I found him to be totally

I had my engagement ring reset by David. I had an older fairly classic setting. David turned my ring into an amazing original, totally updated gorgeous masterpiece! I have had numerous compliments.David has updated my jewelry in the past and created beautiful necklaces for me. This time he has outdone himself. My ring has become a completely brand new piece of jewelry. He is most creative and has an unusual gift that is revolutionary.
I highly recommend David if you are looking for something unique that you don't see and at a terrific price, look no further!

David Stern is the finest jeweler around. Not only does he deal in fabulous merchandise, but he is a one of a kind designer that can make anything you want come to life. He has made numerous pieces for my wife for me including a 15th Anniversary wedding band for her which is circular and two-tiered covered in diamond chips. It is stunning. He has also made my wife a butterfly finger ring out of diamond chips and gold. It is beautiful and looks awesome on my wife’s hand. He is currently working on a piece for my wife that she brought him. She collects precious gemstones and he is going to reinforce it in a silver/rhodium lining and attach chakra stones to make it more powerful and one of a kind. Do not shop for or trust your precious jewelry with anyone else but David Stern. He is honest, creative, and deals fair prices.

If you live in the Greater Boca Raton area and think of jewelry, there's no one more equipped or better at sharing his knowledge and skills than David Stern.
