We gave the information on what we wanted to Shane he developed the ring and it is one of a kind and everything my wife and I wanted. Thank you Shane and David Reynolds!
I have been a graduate gemologist for more years than I care to state I grew up in the business and worked for the first GIA graduate for years. I have taught gemology in Tampa since 1982. Further, in the years I taught, Shane was the only one I ever proctored who ever totally aced the GIA exams. I would trust him with anything I own..I recommend him to anyone who asks me. He is a gentleman, he is honest and he is one really fantastic designer.
The quality of Shane's work is amazing.I wish I had his talent. Any thing that has to do with jewelry, Shane at David Reynolds Jewelry is the person to talk to.He will not disappoint you.He has never let me down. He is awesome !!!
I have trusted my antique wedding band to Shane at David Reynolds Jewelry, when I lost a very small diamond. The ring came back perfect, polished, and looking better than when I received it 25 years ago. As the Executive Director of the Florida Society of Goldsmiths, I know a large number of jeweler. Shane has been helpful when I have questions about techniques and does stunning work. My friends and I are excited that he chose to purchase the shop, because we would have followed him anywhere.
Mark, I understand that you are very upset with us and on a KILL DAVID REYNOLDS campaign. If your frustration is really based on thinking that we damaged your stone, we didn't. We spoke with your appraiser and even she told you that it's not likely that we caused the damage.
Yes I'm Shane Socash G.G. (GIA) the new owner. I have been an employee of David Reynolds for 14 years and now the founder Earl Waters works here (for me:) 40 hours a week as a mentor, a business advisor, and a friend. Things are very much the same as they've always been.
Ultimately Mark, you were dismissed as a customer not because of this one accusation, but because of a history since 2006 (as far back as our computer records go) of you creating a stink and then looking for some kind of financial adjustment.
I have been a dealer in Pinellas County for 33 years. I have taken the GIA diamond grading course . Do not ever take a stone here to be mounted . If they make a mistake they will not own up to it and it will be a costly mistake for you . The owner seems nice when they take your money , but have a problem and good luck . They keep a record of any complaints you make and will use it against you and tell you " you are fired as a customer " . I am flabergasted how they treated me . No one I have ever dealt with in 33 years , has ever been so rude to me .
Shane is nothing like the original owners Ron & Earl. When a GIA diamond appraiser who knows my stone said they might have fractured it , Shane refused to even look at it for me .
I would never treat my customers with such disrespect .BEWARE !
I LOVE David Reynolds Jewelry and I recommend them to all my friends. I was a customer when Ronnie and Earl owed the place and think that Shane is doing a wonderful job of keeping up the store’s excellent reputation. The store has a great selection of jewelry and their repair work is amazing. I have a necklace that my mother gave to me years ago and the clasp broke. When I picked up the necklace, I expected it to have just a new clasp - they polished and cleaned it so that it looked brand new!
I have been a customer at David Reynolds for the last 5 or so years, (mostly for coins and bullion but also for some jewelry repairs.) I have found the staff to be courteous, helpful, and very knowledgeable. I have tried some of the other stores in Tampa Bay and David Reynold's prices are consistently the most competitive.
I have dealt with david reynolds a few times and its obvious they try to gauge your knowledge for exploitation instead of being fair to all customers...its a glorified pawn shop...very inconsistent, one guy will tell you one thing and the other gay will tell you something else ...unless you are over the age of 50 or an obvious member of the gay community these guys will try to rob you blind...if you are between the ages of 18 and 40 they treat you like you are a thief the moment you walk thru the door....if you are shopping any jewelry/coins go to international diamond center...which is head and shoulders better in every way than david Reynolds...no comparison...its not even an opinion its a fact...I urge u to see for yourself....if u must deal with david Reynolds ask for Shane.
BestJewelers & Custom Work Anywhere – Shane the custom jewelry designer is the best in the land. VERY pleasant to work with & very knowledgeable. I have had several custom pieces made, I get compliments all the time and tell people where they came from. We would not trust anyone else. We have purchased other items as well and been treated very well by the owners and staff. We love the family friendly feeling of David Reynold's Jewelers, we tell all our friends and now you. Get in there to see them you certiany will not be dissapointed
