Shopping >Stroud Jewelers
Too pricey and rude people behind the counter.
Did not even come close to giving fair
dollar for my gold and sold me a chain three other jewlers said was over charge by 2/3rds. I would seriously shop around before trusting these guys. When i told the owner he said he was is business to make good money and not good deals.
Custom Ring Disaster. I had a custom ring made through Stroud Jewelers. It was the worst experience I've ever had with a jeweler. First off, I entrusted them with several heirloom stones that they "swapped out" for different stones. Most of the heirloom stones were not returned to me. They quoted me one price, when the bill came it was more than double the original quote. The excuse was made that the work done was more than they had estimated, however they never contacted me to inform me of the additional charges during the process. I requested the ring be made out of a certain type of metal, due to allergies, when the ring came back it was made out of a less expensive metal. I wore the ring for one week and broke out in blisters around my finger. I took it back and had to have it recast. The quality of piece is total crap! I've had the ring for a little over a year and have had 3 stones fall out, which I had to have replace by a different jeweler, costing me even more money. I am very dissatisfied with Stroud Jewelers and would discourage everyone from patronizing this establishment.
Keep your watch away from here. I went to Stroud jewelers to get my watch batteries replaced. I was overcharged the first time I went, getting a refund after I went home and called to ensure their prices were correct. The day after my water resistant watch (100ft.) got in a little water and moisture appeared on the front because it was not sealed properly, after which the back fell off entirely. They said they would dry out the watch and return it to me. Upon returning the watch some of the digital display no longer works and the only thing I was told was "That happens when moisture gets in it, at least the analog still works, thanks". A ruined display and three trips later I am very dissatisfied and I would not recommend Stroud to anyone I know, at least for watch battery replacements.
Unique Jewelery. I was looking for unique styles of jewelry and really wanted to support local business. I found what I was looking for at Strouds.
Great if you want your girlfriend to be your fiancee.
My fiance went to Stroud and got the most wonderful ring for me. He ordered the diamond from an online vendor, and took it in to Zealand. Zealand totally went the extra mile playing cloak and dagger games with my honey so he could surprise me with my wonderful proposal. Of course, this is my honey's favorite part of the story. :)
I would only go to Stroud if you wanted your girlfriend or fiancee or wife or whoever to get all smushy and teary eyed at the beautiful adornments you might put on her.
As it is, we get married in 2 weeks and we'll be getting our wedding bands from them too. :)
Perfection!. These guys are honest, perfectionists, fair priced and in my opinion, the ONLY game in town! I, and everyone I know, will go nowhere else. Ask for Zealand.......he knows his stuff and will special order, design, or find anything you desire. I would never dream of even having my wedding ring cleaned elsewhere. I've purchased my husband's christmas, bday, and love gifts ONLY at Stroud for over 10 years. Truly, they are the bedazzle bomb! They are a family owned and operated local business to boot!!!!! Can't Beat'em!
