"We were referred to Mike by
another couple who had a very
positive experience working
with him on their engagement
ring.  We wanted a ring made
using diamonds that had been
in each of our families for
generations. And we had a
specific design in mind for
It was such a comfort to work
with Mike on our ring.  Not
only is he very talented, but he
puts so much thought and care
into every step of the process.
We trusted him completely
with the design,
construction, and the
delicate handling of our
family jewelry
.  We were so
lucky to find him.  The end
result is a beautiful and unique
ring that means so much to us,
and brings me compliments
wherever I go!  We look
forward to using Mike in the
future and can't recommend
him any higher!"

I truly enjoyed working with Mike on my wife's engagement ring and both hers and my wedding band as well. Mike is
always willing to meet at your convenience, provide all information necessary to making a decision on a piece, and always
maintains a level of sales professionalism that you would expect from any jeweler.
Working with a private jeweler is amazing as you are able to get quality time working with Mike and he is able to
get to know you on a personal level. He creates a low pressure and welcoming environment out of his home office, and not
only gives his professional input, but his personal input on your decision using his years of experience.
Not to mention, the value you get working with a private jeweler cannot be matched by a larger company ... (compared
rings ... the prices were almost 2x Mike's prices for similar style and diamond weight and characteristics).
He is even able
to beat wholesalers.
Spend quality time with the jeweler, no sales pressure, and best value/low prices you can find... Self-explanatory to
choose Smale Jewelers!

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 rings and bands (with comparable diamonds and gold weights) that are all too often found in stores. If you are looking for a ring that
will be uniquely yours, we would highly recommend Mike. Even without a sketch of your own, Mike’s years of experience can help you develop a personalized design you will be happy with. Knowing that we were able to take our own sketch and
transform it into a symbol of our
love
will always make our ring and band unique and special.
Thank you Mike. Will and Kate
I found more than one gem when I found Mike Smale from Smale Jewelers! This was my 2nd marriage, and it was
important to me to find a unique ring. After countless trips to jewelry stores of all shapes and sizes, it didn't look like
"unique" came at an affordable price. I then began looking online which presented a lot more options, but none of them
seemed affordable either, and ordering an engagement ring online leaves much to be desired on the customer service front. I
happened call Mike. Our first meeting was great! I knew almost instantly that he would be the person to help me find the
ring of my dreams! We decided together that day that a custom ring was the way to go. With just a few pictures and some
description of how I wanted the ring to look, he set to work right away. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional and
creative. We worked on my design together and he lended his expertise to help us understand what was structurally
possible and what wasn't. In the end he even added little details that just made the ring perfect! I wish there were words
to describe how thrilled I am with my ring. I can promise you that if you think that unique and magnificent are not
affordable, you are wrong!
Call Mike Smale and he will make your dreams come true at an affordable price!!
The ring looks great and the whole process was
excellent.  I really appreciated the CAD
program you used. I had visited other jewelers
who used that same company but none had the
program you use. It really gave that "perfect"
design element so my wife could get the ring she
really wanted. The tools like the ring on the
hand visuals also helped the process.  

Thanks again for the
excellent service and
great value
.
Mike is such a great
person.  
I trusted him
100%
. My fiancé
absolutely loves his
wedding band! :)
-Katie
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!
-Brian

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.
-Michael
Very professional and get
you what you want. Did
an
awesome job with our
rings.
-Pamela
Mike was a pleasure to work with. He was flexible with appointment
times, meeting with us on the weekend since we don't live close by. Very
patient as we rolled through various options, listening and presenting
different rings and ideas to help us hone in on our perfect rings. More
relaxing than sitting in a mall store and I am sure a better value for the
end product. Even offered to work on designing 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.
-Roger
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.
Mike Smale is wonderful to work with
and
a true artist!  His ability to
interpret design ideas and bring them to
life first in wax and then in the finished
form is amazing.  I have two custom rings
from him and receive many wonderful
comments on their uniqueness and
beauty…

To get one on one professional experience,
I highly recommend Smale Jewelers. You

for
exquisite craftsmanship , Smale
Jewelers cares more about the product and
your happiness then the price tag. Will
return for future jewelry needs.

Mike was very flexible and welcoming,
and let me explore each of my whims until
I was satisfied we were getting the right
diamonds and ring. Mike kept me in the
loop throughout the entire process and
made it f
eel like I was buying
through family
. Bottom Line: my fiance
is still ecstatic with the final choice two
weeks later!

I truly appreciate the care and expertise you demonstrate in your work.

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 meeting 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.
