My husband and I have truly had the privilege of coming across Grace before we had gotten married, and would not have anyone else choose our perfect diamond.
Thank you, Grace!! We love you!

There are some things that I believe are truly once-in-a-lifetime, and getting married is one of them. So, when I met the love of my life, I knew there was only one person who could help me find the perfect, once-in-a-lifetime rings to seal the deal - Grace!
Although it was about 5 years apart, she helped us bring both my engagement ring and wedding band to life.
Over the years, I've gotten countless compliments on both pieces, which were both custom made for me (exactly what I was looking for, from stones to settings to finishing touches, in our price range, etc.).
I truly couldn't have asked for more from both experiences, and can't wait to add to my collection in the years to come (push gifts? anniversary upgrades?).
If you're looking for someone who not only knows diamonds and fine jewelry but also truly LOVES what she does (which really does show in the finished products), Grace is your girl!

Grace’s gem services were insurmountably spot on.
I told her what my budget was and she got the best center stone possible for my wife. Done. told her I wanted a setting fit for a queen and She helped me find it swiftly.

The setting I chose accentuates the brilliance of the center stone perfect for a princess. Grace continually reassured me when I felt unsure about the choices I made, but I never regretted it. My wife gets compliments quite often on her ring and I’m the one reaping the benefits by having a happy wife.
I highly recommend Grace cause she knows what a women wants.
Through every step of the process she was affable, professional, and everything was done in a timely fashion.
Thanks again grace for a gem of a time through making something which will last forever.

-Chris K

My experience with Grace has been amazing! I have been bugging my husband for a new setting for my engagement ring for years and when I told him I met a jeweler who can design it with me for a very reasonable price he finally said okay. Throughout the whole process from start to finish, Grace was incredibly patient and professional.
I asked lots of questions and she always responded timely and with great suggestions. When the initial design was set and the wax mold made for me to try on, something still felt off to me and Grace listened to my concerns and redesigned it for me immediately.
I loved Grace and her work so much that I had her work on a necklace for me too!
All her pieces are so beautiful it’s really hard to resist buying everything!

-Wendy L

Grace helped us get a perfect engagement ring. My girlfriend (at the time) was looking for a non traditional stone for her engagement ring. Even though it was not a diamond (a ruby), Grace went above and beyond to procure the perfect ruby stone for the engagement ring. After we procured the stone, the setting was just as important. We went through many different designs and Grace used her expertise to help us find a final setting for us. She walked us through step by step on design, getting us to sign off and got us the ring in record time. The whole process only took about a month, it would have been quicker but we were going through so many different designs. My now Fiance is super happy with the ring and we get compliments on it all the time. If you're looking for 1:1 personal service, I'd recommend Grace and Gempress. I also recommended them to a friend and they're now engaged also!!!

 
Thank you Gempress and THANK YOU Grace!

As a novice in precious stones, buying an engagement ring was a frightening and foreign concept.
I knew I wanted to propose to my fiancé but did not know how to go about obtaining a ring. Luckily for me a friend introduced me to Grace
who is a gem of a jeweler. No pun intended. She helped guide me through each and every step
of the ring making process and shopped around for the best competitive prices from the stone to the setting. The thing that puts her above the rest was the commitment and customer service she provided.
I could tell that Grace truly feels that it isn’t just a piece of jewelry but it is a special memory for her clients.
She was so great, my fiancé and I consider her a part of the family and not only did we also purchase our wedding bands from her, she is also invited as a special guest to our wedding. I highly recommend using Grace as the only jewelry expert
you will ever need.
Her pricing and customer service can’t be beat.

With Love,

-Daniel & Diana

Prior to meeting Grace, shopping for a diamond engagement ring was very stressful for me. I've visited diamond districts, jewelry malls, and even small mom/pop stores to try to get a feel of diamond rings and prices. I knew very little about diamonds and these vendors knew it. I felt like everyone was trying to con me into doing something regrettable. Grace was the total opposite. She sensed my lack of knowledge of diamonds and, instead of trying to take advantage of me like everyone else, she took her valuable time to educate me on the basics and also guided me to some good resources. I knew immediately that she was genuinely trying to help me make the best decision. My observation of her revealed a few things:
1. She is very knowledgeable.
2. She is detail-oriented.
3. She seemed to have the respect of those who she worked and interacted with.
These observations assured me that I was in the right place. When choosing a diamond, Grace showed me options, gave me her best recommendation (while not placing pressure on taking them), and she helped me stay within my budget (even when I briefly thought about going over it). In the end, I am very happy with the quality of the diamond engagement ring and most importantly, very happy with what I paid for it (my fiancee loves it too), the same quality ring would have cost me a significant amount more in other retail businesses. I am also pleased with how pleasant Grace has made the whole experience been and I'm most grateful for her honesty. Grace is truly a person with integrity (something hard to find these days) and as veteran, I highly value that. It is safe for me to say that I recommend Grace for all your diamond needs.

I knew my fiance wanted a rose gold ring with a round diamond and a cushion halo. I visited several different jewelry stores and couldn't find exactly what she wanted at my price point. But then I came to Gempress and Grace helped me customize the perfect ring for the perfect price. She helped me pick the best diamond to fit this ring and was honest in giving me her opinion about the different diamond options. The quality and clarity of the diamond was beyond my expectations. No other jewelry store was able to offer the same quality at the same price. When I actually saw the ring, I was blown away. It was even more beautiful than it had been in my mind. I knew without a doubt my fiancée would say, "Yes!" On August 4th, 2018 I took my fiancee to Old Westbury Gardens in Long Island. We took a tour of the mansion and headed out to the garden. Once we reached the fountain at the center of the garden, I knelt down and proposed. She said YES! She still raves about the ring and tells me she gets compliments on her ring all the time - even from strangers! I highly recommend working with Gempress to find your perfect ring. You won't be disappointed.
 
-David Y

If you’re contemplating whether or not you should buy jewelry from this website, the answer is YES, yes you should.
While it helps to see jewelry in person, you eliminate the sales pitch, pressure, and the retail cost associated with in-store jewelers. In turn, you get someone who truly cares about the outcome of her worksmanship and ensuring you are really happy with your purchase!
I ordered my wedding bands with Grace and the process was seamless. While I was a bit indecisive about the rings, she answered my questions and did not push me into purchasing a higher metal quality or adding diamonds but instead she took her time to enlightened me with her knowledge and expertise of different metals, prongs, diamond placement, etc. We are both happy with our rings and know who to contact in the future.
Having a jeweler you can trust is important, you won’t be disappointed going with Grace!  

 

-Jenny L

Grace at Gempress has been so amazing to work with! My fiancé first worked with Gempress on my beautiful engagement ring. After our proposal, I was absolutely in love with my engagement ring and of course reached out to Gempress for my wedding band. She worked with me to find the perfect band to go with my ring. She was so helpful and knowledgable and I couldn't have had a better experience! Most recently, I purchased a unique ring that I wear everyday! I'll definitely be working with Gempress for all my jewelry needs since I've absolutely loved every piece I've received.

-Anna K

Call it vanity, but I love wearing diamonds and without Grace, I could not have afforded my “must-have” diamond pieces that I own and cherish every day.
Grace’s signature pieces are always eye-catching with extra sparkly diamonds and complement the sophisticated professional look. Her pieces also have timeless qualities – you can dress up or down and they always look classic and stylish.
Also, they are extremely comfortable to wear every day! With Grace’s help, I built and continue to build my “collection” of timeless foundation pieces. And she is helping my daughter as well! Grace designed and made my daughter’s very first diamond necklace (paved diamond heart necklace) to celebrate her fifth birthday. My daughter loves her necklace and she has not taken it off since the day we put the necklace on! Don’t hesitate, try her piece, and you’ll become a
“regular” like me!

-Min K

 

Finding a trustworthy and reputable jeweler in NYC is hard to come by. When I worked with Grace to find diamond stud earrings(2ct), she went above and beyond to find the perfect customized pair that were high in quality and within my budget. She made me feel comfortable because she was knowledgeable, professional, friendly and had an open line of communication throughout the process. Given that the studs were in a high price range, trust is so important when working with a jeweler. Grace had my trust the entire time, so much so that after purchasing the studs, I ended up buying 2 additional pieces(diamond necklaces). I get compliments on my earrings all the time as well as my necklaces. The quality of the diamonds, the prices, and customer service cannot be beat. I would recommend Grace in a heartbeat!

-Christine L

I had customized my fiances engagement ring from Gempress. It was very easy for a newbie like myself.
I sent few pictures and express how I wanted to be done. Grace sent me images every step of the entire progress so there would be no misunderstandings at every step.
It came out beautiful!!!
I can see the amazing workmanship behind their work.

Nervous about buying a ring? Don't need to worry! Grace takes all that away when she is helping you pick out the ring you want. She is very honest and doesn't try to throw a sales pitch. She's actually there to help get you what you want. It was a very good and easy going experience picking out a ring with her assistance I would not choose another person.

-Wilson Y

Grace's innovative design exceeded my expectations.    
I'm thrilled with my new ring, its beautiful! The whole process from start to finish was seamless.
Gempress will always be my #1 go to jeweler.
 
-Nitsa M
The whole process of buying an engagement ring can be very exhausting to anyone. Especially for a person who is not involved in the business of precious metals and gems. Grace was meticulous in helping me find the perfect diamond in the correct clarity and cut for my needs. She explained which diamonds were the best for the specific ring I wanted made. Her service and knowledge is the best in the industry. My wife was beyond happy with her ring and almost daily gets compliments about her ring wherever she goes. Gempress should be the industry standard because it was the absolutely the best. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone.
 
-Kenny J
Grace went above and beyond during my search for an engagement ring! Based on my budget and preferences she was able to pick out an excellent diamond and built a beautiful ring! My fiance absolutely loved it and is complimented on it regularly. I cannot recommend Grace highly enough!!
 
-Matthew L

Grace was a delight to work with. Searching for the right ring was a daunting task for me, but she was able to make it simple. She took the time to explain and walked me through the differences as well as pros and cons of all the options. At the end, I was able to find the perfect engagement ring for my fiancee given the tight timeline that I had. Grace offers both professional service and great value, highly recommended.

-Ben S

Grace redesigned my engagement ring, wedding band, diamond earrings and necklace the way I exactly wanted. I get compliments all the time. She also helped my husband with his wedding band and with my mom's diamond ring.
She provides a high quality service at a very reasonable price. If you're looking for a trustworthy and knowledgeable jeweler I highly recommend GEMPRESS for all your jewelry needs!

-Amy L

Grace worked with myself and my fiance to design my engagement ring. She was phenomenal! So easy to talk to, incredibly knowledgeable, and made us feel like family.
I was nervous going in with only a photo for reference, and not knowing much about rings or stones. She answered any questions we had, and walked us through the whole process! She crafted my perfect one of a kind ring into reality, and we couldn't be happier with our experience and quality of product.
I recommend Grace to everyone!

-Ashley H

I went to Gempress 3 times for 3 different purposes.
The first was to get my wife(girlfriend at the time) a birthday gift.
I asked for a simple, clean diamond bracelet and told them my budget and Gempress told me not to worry that they have the perfect bracelet in mind. I left it all up to them and about a week later I received the bracelet, gave it to my wife(girlfriend at the time), next thing you know I'M MARRIED!!!(I'm sure this isn't the main reason why my wife married me haha).This then got me to go back to Gempress to get an engagement ring and a wedding ring that goes perfectly with the engagement ring. As a man that was about to get his first engagement ring for his fiancé, I had no clue on anything about diamonds. Gempress, again, helped me out by taking their precious time and educating me on the different cuts, clarity, and the color of diamonds, what's important and what's not important. They were the best in helping me pick out the most beautiful, perfect engagement ring.


Not only is Gempress very helpful, they make you feel important and they know exactly what you want. Thank you Gempress for being helpful and being part of my journey in my new chapter in life. I will definitely be seeing you again!!!

-Andy L

I couldn't trust jewelers or websites on the purchase of diamonds and wedding bands. Grace, however, with her expertise and frankness listened to what I wanted and best advised me on the best possible purchase within my budget and vision for the perfect wedding bands set.

I went away more knowledgeable and insightful on the purchasing of diamonds, and my wife still loves and shows off her wedding bands set even after 5 years. I couldn't be more satisfied with Grace's service.

-Peter K

Grace is the best and can't say enough about my experience with her since I got my engagement ring to my push gift as well as my anniversary gift. She always knows what I want and really helps when she shows me exactly what she is imagining in her mind. She has the best eye for what is in trend. Can't thank her enough for these special gifts I will always cherish.

-Maryann A

What a trust worthy jeweler. She is honest and fully transparent who guides you through the entire process (all questions are good questions and she made sure that she answered all professionally with valid tips!)! This was my first time experience with a private jeweler who I needed to figure out my next steps into designing my gold in the “gold flask.” I didn’t know what I wanted and what I wanted to do with my gold so we ended up designing two beautiful necklaces and charms. She’s very detailed, very passionate in her designs and very communicative! She is an expert in her field. She has been in the diamond and jewelry business for over a decade. She knows the pricing the quality and the people who will give her the best products. I highly recommend her to my family and friends!
 
-Michelle L
 
 
I was stressed out for a long time trying to find a nice engagement ring that was also within my budget. Grace from Gempress solved that problem! She's very professional and very easy to talk to. We communicated with each other throughout whole process and she went out of her way to deliver the best quality and best looking ring that I didn't know I could afford. I have met with many jewelers but Grace is the best in the game. Thank you so much!!
 
-Han L
 
 
I got my engagement ring and wedding band from Grace and it was wonderful experience both times. She respects my opinions but still gives suggestions based on her experiences. Also, she is very prompt on getting back to me and the ring was ready so quick. I have been getting many compliments on my rings so I definitely recommend Gempress!
 
-Sowon Y
 
 
I usually don’t have time to post reviews but I made time because I want everyone to know how amazing this company is to work with. I have found a Jewler for a lifetime! Grace is amazing at what she does, has all the right contacts and always delivers high quality, highly reliable service.
 
 
 

No matter where you are located, I strongly recommend giving Gempress a chance as one of your options when looking for jewelry, specifically engagement rings. While located in NY, Grace from Gempress makes the ring shopping process super easy by being very responsive and facilitating the production and transportation of your order.

I was able to get exactly what I wanted with Grace walking me through the pros and cons of the materials, stones and setting. She was able to get the perfect stone and had a custom band made made to my specification. I live in the Midwest but stopped by the Gempress office in NY when I made an appointment and was glad I did. She took care of ensuring the final order will be shipped in a safe and secure manner to make it as simple as possible for me.

Definitely reach out to Gempress if you are looking for a ring and I think you will be very happy that you did.

-Sam Y

Grace made the entire process of designing an engagement ring such a pleasant and seamless one! She was incredibly communicative, knowledgeable and willing to work within my limits. She sent me photos along the way, and ensured I was getting the best quality. I heavily relied on her years of expertise and knew I was in good hands!
I am extremely happy with my ring. It sparkles like none other and was a really fair price! Would 100% recommend!

-Jen H

Grace is extremely helpful and great at what she does. Her rings are beautifully designed and well crafted. Through finding a gold ring, my uncle was kind enough to help me order a beautiful gold ring. She made the whole experience very comfortable and easy.

-Olivia W

I needed help setting a few precious stones my brother had purchased years ago for my mother’s upcoming 70th birthday. I was recommended to Grace through a close friend of mine. Grace and her team went above and beyond under a short timeline to have the ring ready just in time for Mother’s Day. Needless to say the ring looked perfectly amazing! Now my mother is rocking her “Crazy Rich Asian” ring.

Thank you Grace and your team for making my mother’s ring possible!

-Philip P

Grace is knowledgable, professional and very accommodating!!! I would recommend Anyone looking for a wedding band to see Grace - so glad I did!!!!! She’s the BEST!!
Love my eternity band!!

-Nancy C

Gempress seriously saved my ring.
I was looking for an experienced jeweler to set my loose diamond (after a horrible experience with
the previous setting). I found Gempress through Instagram and Grace helped me custom design my dream setting while also ensuring that the design would be safe for everyday wear. Specifically, I wanted a very thin band with delicate claw prongs and Grace created the design to make sure my diamond would still be secure. She was super kind and communicative throughout the whole process which really meant the most to me! She always checked with me and my boyfriend first before proceeding with any decision and she was always available whenever we had any questions. 100% would recommend!!!

-Sarah D

I went to Gempress for a custom engagement ring for my fiance. Grace, the owner, made the whole engagement ring buying experience not only a breeze but enjoyable. She really has the talent and the eye for excellence. As soon as we started texting and emailing, I knew I could trust her. She was constantly checking to see if there was another diamond that was better. She stretched very dollar in my budget to get me the best diamond. She runs a very honest business, and treats her clients with special attention because she knows this is the single most intimate purchase a man will make in his life. I'm very happy and also very proud of how the ring came out. More importantly my fiance said YES! and she loves it!

-Michael Y

I loved work with them!
My wedding band is absolutely PERFECT. Exactly what I wanted. They were very patient with me and the quality is out of this world. I will recommend Gempress to all my friends and family.

-Diennys G

I ordered a customized necklace with my son’s name and my experience with
Grace was simply amazing.
Her prompt communication had put me at ease about ordering without actually having to go in and received it just in time for the holidays as she promised.
I can’t wait to buy more diamonds from her because I know I can trust her with her expertise and excellent service.

She crafted my perfect one of a kind ring into reality, and we couldn't be happier with our experience and quality of product.
I recommend Grace to everyone!

The whole process of buying an engagement ring can be very exhausting to anyone. Especially for a person who is not involved in the business of precious metals and gems. Grace was meticulous in helping me find the perfect diamond in the correct clarity and cut for my needs. She explained which diamonds were the best for the specific ring I wanted made. Her service and knowledge is the best in the industry. My wife was beyond happy with her ring and almost daily gets compliments about her ring wherever she goes. Gempress should be the industry standard because it was the absolutely the best. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone.

Grace went above and beyond during my search for an engagement ring! Based on my budget and preferences she was able to pick out an excellent diamond and built a beautiful ring! My fiance absolutely loved it and is complimented on it regularly. I cannot recommend Grace highly enough!!

Grace was a delight to work with. Searching for the right ring was a daunting task for me, but she was able to make it simple. She took the time to explain and walked me through the differences as well as pros and cons of all the options. At the end, I was able to find the perfect engagement ring for my fiancee given the tight timeline that I had. Grace offers both professional service and great value, highly recommended.

Grace redesigned my engagement ring, wedding band, diamond earrings and necklace the way I exactly wanted. I get compliments all the time. She also helped my husband with his wedding band and with my mom's diamond ring. She provides a high quality service at a very reasonable price. If you're looking for a trustworthy and knowledgeable jeweler I highly recommend GEMPRESS for all your jewelry needs!

Nervous about buying a ring? Don't need to worry! Grace takes all that away when she is helping you pick out the ring you want. She is very honest and doesn't try to throw a sales pitch. She's actually there to help get you what you want. It was a very good and easy going experience picking out a ring with her assistance I would not choose another person.

Grace's innovative design exceeded my expectations.    
I'm thrilled with my new ring, its beautiful! The whole process from start to finish was seamless.
Gempress will always be my #1 go to jeweler.

I had customized my fiances engagement ring from Gempress. It was very easy for a newbie like myself.
I sent few pictures and express how I wanted to be done. Grace sent me images every step of the entire progress so there would be no misunderstandings at every step.
It came out beautiful!!!
I can see the amazing workmanship behind their work.

Finding a trustworthy and reputable jeweler in NYC is hard to come by. When I worked with Grace to find diamond stud earrings(2ct), she went above and beyond to find the perfect customized pair that were high in quality and within my budget. She made me feel comfortable because she was knowledgeable, professional, friendly and had an open line of communication throughout the process. Given that the studs were in a high price range, trust is so important when working with a jeweler. Grace had my trust the entire time, so much so that after purchasing the studs, I ended up buying 2 additional pieces(diamond necklaces). I get compliments on my earrings all the time as well as my necklaces. The quality of the diamonds, the prices, and customer service cannot be beat. I would recommend Grace in a heartbeat!

I went to Gempress 3 times for 3 different purposes.
The first was to get my wife(girlfriend at the time) a birthday gift.
I asked for a simple, clean diamond bracelet and told them my budget and Gempress told me not to worry that they have the perfect bracelet in mind. I left it all up to them and about a week later I received the bracelet, gave it to my wife(girlfriend at the time), next thing you know I'M MARRIED!!!(I'm sure this isn't the main reason why my wife married me haha).This then got me to go back to Gempress to get an engagement ring and a wedding ring that goes perfectly with the engagement ring. As a man that was about to get his first engagement ring for his fiancé, I had no clue on anything about diamonds. Gempress, again, helped me out by taking their precious time and educating me on the different cuts, clarity, and the color of diamonds, what's important and what's not important. They were the best in helping me pick out the most beautiful, perfect engagement ring.


Not only is Gempress very helpful, they make you feel important and they know exactly what you want. Thank you Gempress for being helpful and being part of my journey in my new chapter in life. I will definitely be seeing you again!!!

I couldn't trust jewelers or websites on the purchase of diamonds and wedding bands. Grace, however, with her expertise and frankness listened to what I wanted and best advised me on the best possible purchase within my budget and vision for the perfect wedding bands set.

I went away more knowledgeable and insightful on the purchasing of diamonds, and my wife still loves and shows off her wedding bands set even after 5 years. I couldn't be more satisfied with Grace's service.

Grace is the best and can't say enough about my experience with her since I got my engagement ring to my push gift as well as my anniversary gift. She always knows what I want and really helps when she shows me exactly what she is imagining in her mind. She has the best eye for what is in trend. Can't thank her enough for these special gifts I will always cherish.

What a trust worthy jeweler. She is honest and fully transparent who guides you through the entire process (all questions are good questions and she made sure that she answered all professionally with valid tips!)! This was my first time experience with a private jeweler who I needed to figure out my next steps into designing my gold in the “gold flask.” I didn’t know what I wanted and what I wanted to do with my gold so we ended up designing two beautiful necklaces and charms. She’s very detailed, very passionate in her designs and very communicative! She is an expert in her field. She has been in the diamond and jewelry business for over a decade. She knows the pricing the quality and the people who will give her the best products. I highly recommend her to my family and friends!

I was stressed out for a long time trying to find a nice engagement ring that was also within my budget. Grace from Gempress solved that problem! She's very professional and very easy to talk to. We communicated with each other throughout whole process and she went out of her way to deliver the best quality and best looking ring that I didn't know I could afford. I have met with many jewelers but Grace is the best in the game. Thank you so much!!
 
-Han L
I got my engagement ring and wedding band from Grace and it was wonderful experience both times. She respects my opinions but still gives suggestions based on her experiences. Also, she is very prompt on getting back to me and the ring was ready so quick. I have been getting many compliments on my rings so I definitely recommend Gempress!
 
-Sowon Y
I usually don’t have time to post reviews but I made time because I want everyone to know how amazing this company is to work with. I have found a Jewler for a lifetime! Grace is amazing at what she does, has all the right contacts and always delivers high quality, highly reliable service.
 

No matter where you are located, I strongly recommend giving Gempress a chance as one of your options when looking for jewelry, specifically engagement rings. While located in NY, Grace from Gempress makes the ring shopping process super easy by being very responsive and facilitating the production and transportation of your order.

I was able to get exactly what I wanted with Grace walking me through the pros and cons of the materials, stones and setting. She was able to get the perfect stone and had a custom band made made to my specification. I live in the Midwest but stopped by the Gempress office in NY when I made an appointment and was glad I did. She took care of ensuring the final order will be shipped in a safe and secure manner to make it as simple as possible for me.

Definitely reach out to Gempress if you are looking for a ring and I think you will be very happy that you did.

Grace made the entire process of designing an engagement ring such a pleasant and seamless one! She was incredibly communicative, knowledgeable and willing to work within my limits. She sent me photos along the way, and ensured I was getting the best quality. I heavily relied on her years of expertise and knew I was in good hands!
I am extremely happy with my ring. It sparkles like none other and was a really fair price! Would 100% recommend!

-Jen H

Grace is extremely helpful and great at what she does. Her rings are beautifully designed and well crafted. Through finding a gold ring, my uncle was kind enough to help me order a beautiful gold ring. She made the whole experience very comfortable and easy.

-Olivia W

I needed help setting a few precious stones my brother had purchased years ago for my mother’s upcoming 70th birthday. I was recommended to Grace through a close friend of mine. Grace and her team went above and beyond under a short timeline to have the ring ready just in time for Mother’s Day. Needless to say the ring looked perfectly amazing! Now my mother is rocking her “Crazy Rich Asian” ring.

Thank you Grace and your team for making my mother’s ring possible!

-Philip P

Grace is knowledgable, professional and very accommodating!!! I would recommend Anyone looking for a wedding band to see Grace - so glad I did!!!!! She’s the BEST!!
Love my eternity band!!

-Nancy C

Gempress seriously saved my ring.
I was looking for an experienced jeweler to set my loose diamond (after a horrible experience with
the previous setting). I found Gempress through Instagram and Grace helped me custom design my dream setting while also ensuring that the design would be safe for everyday wear. Specifically, I wanted a very thin band with delicate claw prongs and Grace created the design to make sure my diamond would still be secure. She was super kind and communicative throughout the whole process which really meant the most to me! She always checked with me and my boyfriend first before proceeding with any decision and she was always available whenever we had any questions. 100% would recommend!!!

-Sarah D

I went to Gempress for a custom engagement ring for my fiance. Grace, the owner, made the whole engagement ring buying experience not only a breeze but enjoyable. She really has the talent and the eye for excellence. As soon as we started texting and emailing, I knew I could trust her. She was constantly checking to see if there was another diamond that was better. She stretched very dollar in my budget to get me the best diamond. She runs a very honest business, and treats her clients with special attention because she knows this is the single most intimate purchase a man will make in his life. I'm very happy and also very proud of how the ring came out. More importantly my fiance said YES! and she loves it!

-Michael Y

I loved work with them!
My wedding band is absolutely PERFECT. Exactly what I wanted. They were very patient with me and the quality is out of this world. I will recommend Gempress to all my friends and family.

-Diennys G

I ordered a customized necklace with my son’s name and my experience with
Grace was simply amazing.
Her prompt communication had put me at ease about ordering without actually having to go in and received it just in time for the holidays as she promised.
I can’t wait to buy more diamonds from her because I know I can trust her with her expertise and excellent service.
