I'm your typical man who knows little about jewelry except that women love it and can't get enough of it. My situation is even more complicated because my wife knows a lot about jewelry and has high standards for quality and things that are unique. This has made buying her nice stuff so intimidating that I pretty much gave up and would tell her
to just buy what she wanted and call it her gift from me. As you can guess, my lack of effort was not well received by her. I went in to Concept Jewelry Design in St Albert and had a very different experience. The staff were welcoming and relaxed which helped a lot. They spent a lot of time with me and asked lots of questions and did not make me
feel stupid about my lack of knowledge.
They taught me about the various stones and metals and helped me to understand every component of what I was buying. It was my wife's 40th birthday and she was depressed so with the help of Carmen, we designed a beautiful starfish necklace with yellow diamonds. Never would I have had the guts to actually design something but in this
store it was easy. Carmen patiently and respectfully helped me through the whole process from choosing the perfect design from the many beautiful and unique ones she came up with to choosing the right stones, metals chains etc.
My wife and I were so happy with the necklace that we have become exclusive customers at Concept Jewelry Design and have bought several things there. I even had my wedding band remade there even though I said I would never change it. Their customer service is so good that they gave me an extensive education on luxury watches and I have since bought 2 from them and they don't even sell watches at their store! That's pretty amazing!
We have so much trust and respect for Carmen and Ty and the kind of business they do that we call them our friends and we will shop no place else. So, for all you men who are stressed out about buying jewelry for the ladies in your life, go to Concept Jewelry and you will have a very different experience than you have in any other store. Your ladies will love you for it!
