Amazing quality diamonds for amazing deals. I visited dealer after dealer in searching for a nice engagement ring and was very off-put by those who simply wanted to up-sell me. After visiting Villarreal, I knew I had found the place. Malcolm was incredibly personable and understanding that I had a budget and sat with me for four hours designing a ring to meet both my specifications as well as hers. I am astounded by the customer service provided here and would recommend Villarreal to anyone seeking fine jewelry.
Fantastic service! – I went to Joseph on the recommendation of a friend who had used him for his engagement and wedding rings. Joseph was fantastic in helping me to find exactly the ring style I was looking for. He also helped me with a beautiful diamond for it.
I recently returned to Joseph with my fiancé to pick out wedding bands. He was very patient and made certain we found exactly the right rings and that the fit was perfect. If you need custom jewelry for any reason, Joseph is the man to see.
Stunning custom made ring – After looking at rings for a couple of months with my girlfriend, we couldn’t find the right combination of details that we wanted in a ring. As a consequence, we decided to do a custom made ring. It was appealing to know that the ring would be truly unique and fit our own personal style.
We met with Joseph Villarreal in his office and from the beginning he was able to convey confidence on creating a true custom made ring to our specifications.
His advice was great in guiding us through the process. We scheduled a meeting to look at gems, as we wished for a blue sapphire as the center stone. Joseph brought several options of gems that tied to our specifications and we were able to select the perfect gem for us.
We then went to review the design of the ring to his office. We were able to look at a printed full color version and also use a CAD software to make some further changes on the design and see the impact immediately on the screen. That was great, and it allowed us to visualize the impact of different design changes.
After a few weeks we picked up the ring, and the result was stunning. We are very happy with the results and we fully recommend Joseph and Villarreal Jewelers.
We are very pleased to be of service. At Villarreal Fine Jewelers, jewelry design is our passion. Custom designed engagement rings are one of the many types of jewelry items we love to create with our computer aided drawing (CAD) software. We are happy you chose our jewelry store to create your custom piece of jewelry.
We wish you both the very best, Joseph V.- Villarreal Fine Jewelers
Highly Recommended – My fiance worked with Joseph to have my engagement ring made and had a great experience. When it came time to decide on a wedding band we decided to go back to Villarreal Jewelers. I wanted something very unique and different and Malcolm was great at creating just that. I had one picture of a ring I liked and from that he created something better than I could have imagined. I am so pleased as my wedding band is very unique to me and exceeded my expectations! :)
Dear Ashlei, "Better than I could have imagined" and "Exceeded my expectations" are compliments we aspire to. Your wedding band design was one of the most complex I have worked on and ultimately one of the most fulfilling. Thank you for allowing us to bring your vision to reality. Our best, Malcolm B. Villarreal Fine Jewelers
Simply Incredible. – I couldn't be more impressed and pleased with the high level of service and final product that this company offers and recommend them to anyone looking to create their own custom engagement ring.
Five minutes into my initial meeting with Malcolm Brown at their office, I knew this was the place that could deliver the perfect custom engagement ring of the highest quality that my bride to be would love.
Before getting into any specifics of what I thought I was looking for with the ring, Malcolm took the time to ask thoughtful questions about it's intended recipient's personality and lifestyle in effort to design a ring suited just for her and kept this all in mind throughout the process. We outlined a rough budget and from there his expertise in jewelery design truly shined though his surprisingly realistic notebook sketches in literally translating an initial idea into something tangible and completely spectacular. He is a modest guy, but I'll say that Malcolm has to simply be the best at what he does as he always took time to share his expertise and advice and was sincerely determined to far exceed my expectations. Flat out, he made the "buying an engagement ring experience" incredibly fun! So much fun in fact, that my now bride and I returned before our wedding to design her a wedding band to compliment the already amazing work and as expected it is incredibly refined and now completely unique to her left hand.
Thanks again guys!
Spencer - what a terrific endorsement! Creating a custom engagement ring fit for the stunning Asscher-cut diamond that you chose was a challenge and an honor. I can safely say that your matching Asscher diamond "Eternity" wedding band is like no other. We thank you for your trust.

Out with the old, in with the new -the ring, not the hubby. – When my husband and I married, he got me the cutest ring - which I was perfectly happy with. However, we recently celebrated a pretty big anniversary and he purchased a ring from Villarreal Fine Jewelers. I wasn't expecting a ring for my anniversary, but if you knew my husband - this is not surprising.
Now...I must first say the bag and the little jewelry boxes were gorgeous - enough to say, "thanks, babe!", but when I opened the boxes...I cried. Cried because I don't know how well my husband negotiated, but it must have been good considering the rings were now on my kitchen counter waiting for me to take off the old ones and put on the new.
The rings are absolutely stunning. I get comments every day, and I am not one to show it off - it shows off itself. Quite embarrassing for me, but according to my husband, I deserve it - not the embarrassment, but the new wedding set.
10 year anniversary, surprising the wife – I was looking for a gift to give to my wife for our 10 year wedding anniversary. I wasn't sure what direction to go, or where to start. After I decided to do some shopping with the big box jewelers, I almost changed my mind altogether… I wasn't happy with the expected service and what I saw didn't catch my eye.
I called Villarreal Fine Jewelers and looked at some earrings and necklaces and then I saw the most beautiful diamond I had ever seen and it was at a great price. I HAD TO HAVE IT! Joseph helped me find a great setting for the diamond and walked me through the entire process. It was easy and I learned a lot. I was thrilled to see the high level of expertise and the high level of customer service that made this a great experience. Thanks VFJ!!!
Best Decision I made! – If you value great customer service and craftsmanship this is the place for you. I went their to find a 10th anniversary ring for my wife. At first I went there and met with Malcolm, who was very helpful in helping me come up with a few rings I liked. I left without having decided on which ring I was going to purchase, but not once did I feel any pressure to buy something that day.
A week later I was lucky to be given a bunch of loose diamonds. I took them in and Malcolm was excited to be able to design a custom ring for me using the stones I had. Malcolm was amazing, he came came up with a one of a kind ring that was fantastic.
Through the whole process I was given many options that would affect the cost of the ring, but again I was never pressured to get the most expensive option.
Going here and working with Malcolm was one of the best experiences I have ever had when it comes to shopping for high end gifts!!!!
P.S. My wife LOVES the ring!
Hi Marc, Sometimes loose diamonds are just meant to meet! Your diamonds combined together so beautifully that a piece of custom-made "jewelry magic" was the result. It was wonderful to get K's call the next morning (your anniversary!) - she sounded so happy - it makes what we do such a pleasure. Many thanks for the great review. Malcolm Brown, Villarreal Fine Jewelers
Villarreal Jewlers - highly recommended – I found Villarreal Jewelers after a long search for a special jewelry store that would accommodate my demanding requirements, and I was extremely pleased to have them not only meet my high expectations, but exceed them. I was evaluating another jeweler when I started working with Malcolm Brown of Villarreal. Malcolm quickly managed to set the bar so high that the decision to give my business to Villarreal was easy.
Malcolm seemed to understand exactly what I was looking for, and verified it with numerous drawings of my descriptions all along the way. Other jewelers were either not capable or not willing to sketch up ideas as they were being discussed, but Malcolm's artwork made a huge difference in making me feel comfortable that the finished product would be exactly what I had in mind. Malcolm takes great pride in his work and it shows in my fiancee's engagement ring, as well as in his willingness to go above and beyond what any other jeweler would do.
One uncompromising stipulation I had was that the diamond not only be of a particular overall quality, but also be completely conflict free. Malcolm, unlike other jewelers I worked with, did not hesitate to make this a priority. I was extremely impressed when I had finally settled on a platinum setting that included two small "surprise" diamonds, and Malcolm managed to not only find a beautiful conflict-free Canadian main diamond, but also two small matching conflict-free Canadian surprise stones as well, complete with certificates! I'm confident that any other jeweler would not have gone to the extent that Malcolm did to ensure that I had both a beautiful ring and that every possible detail was completely conflict free.
Villarreal is not your typical shopping mall jewelry store - it's where you go to get truly unique jewelry in a pressure-free, attentive environment, and I highly recommend Malcolm Brown. Thanks for everything, Malcolm!
Creating and choosing a (Canadian!) Diamond Engagement RIng goes hand-in-hand with having high expectations. It is an honor to have exceeded yours. Your stellar testimonial means so much to us. Our best, Malcolm B., Villarreal Fine Jewelers
Fine Artists and Craftsmen – My Fiance and I started our search for someone to make the engagement ring I had envisioned. We have friends in the jewelery business and they all said the design was rather complicated and told us that they thought we needed someone with real experence in complicated designs or frankly that we should find something that was pre-made that was close.
We met with both Villarreal and a competitor here in Austin that also designs custom diamond jewlery. After several meetings, Malcom had prepared detailed drawings and provided us with a wealth of information about the various metal choices and options we had as he designed the engagement ring set. With the competition we had basically nothing, no drawings, and ballbark estimates of cost that were almost twice that of Villarreal's and a lot of mis-information about our metal choices.
What was most refreshing was that even though we already had the center diamond (a family heirloom), Malcom gave us the attention and commitment he would have given any customer that was also going to buy the "big" diamond from Villarreal. Malcom is a true artist, and his personal pride in his work was inspiring. Malcom told us he wanted to make our vision a reality and he was gonna do what he could to make it fit our budget. He provided us a lot of options on how we could save costs and still have a quality design.
In the end, we went "all the way" with the options and had the rings of our dreams. All of this was possible because of Villarreal and Malcom and his personal commitment and talent in jewelery design. It was a real pleasure to do business with him.
Pros: Personal Attention, Commitment to Quality, Value for Money
Dear Nancy, What a lovely review! We really appreciate the favorable comparisons with other jewelry stores and the opportunity to bring a challenging three-ring custom design concept to sparkling reality. To know that the we have created the engagement and wedding rings of your dreams is uplifting. Our very best to you both, Malcolm Brown, Villareal Fine Jewelers
