If you need a custom made engagement ring -- Bert is the man – Bert is a true artist. I visited him during my stay on the west coast. He offers the best work you will ever find. I also like that his business is family owned and operated. When you meet him you will quickly feel a sense of warmth and trust because he really listens and takes his time with you. Thanks for the awesome work!
Better the Second Time Around – My fiancee and I have been dating for 8 years, it's a second time around for both of us and I finally decided it was time to pop the question. I spent the next 3 months looking a different jewelry stores, before popping in to Bert Levi's shop and that's where my shopping ended.
I was greeted warmly by Gloria, Bert's wife (I think) and she gave me a quick round down on what they had and left me to browse on my own for a little bit before checking back with me to see if I needed anything. I like how they aren't pushy and don't pressure you here.
I told her what my budget was and the type of ring I was looking for - I needed something to match the personality of my soon-to-be fiancee. To say I was looking for something less than traditional would be more than fair.
I found a gorgeous ring, but it was at the top of my price range. They worked with me to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted and I couldn't be happier with the results.
I took the entire fmaily out to our favorite park for a picnic to propose - she said yes, the kids are thrilled, and the wedding is planned for November. Thanks for all the help, Bert and Gloria, it really made a difference to me and my family.
I made the right choice – I finally met the love of my life and wanted to marry her. That brought up the daunting task of choosing the right engagement ring. To be honest, I was terrified that I was going to somehow make the wrong choice.
I am very happy to say, my fears were unfounded. The reason for that is Bret Levi Family Jewelers. All I had to do was make one good decision, and that was to pick a great jeweler first. Bret took it from there and put me at total ease. He made the process that I thought was going to be very difficult, the exact opposite. A piece of cake! I got the right ring that fits her perfectly and I just could not be any happier. Thank you!
Couldn't ask for better service – There are a few reasons why I enjoyed my experience here so much, but let me just start with the fact that Bert Levi sells real vintage (heirloom) jewelry and his own custom designs that follow similar patterns and techniques - exactly what I was looking for, albeit missing from many other stores. I was shocked to actually find a case with vintage jewelry. I am an avid collector and knew I had found a treasure chest. What a selection, is all I can say.
The second reason is the outstanding and reliable service. Bert seemed very genuine and kind that I knew right away that I was in the right company because Bert makes for great company. He was so patient with me and all my questions which he never hesitated to answer. He took out each piece and let me take my time looking at it thoroughly.
The third reason is the fact that Bert believes in sharing his prosperity. After he rung me up he took a portion on my sale and offered to give me a check with it to any charity of my choice. I was ecstatic since I am a volunteer when it comes to feeding the homeless, which is where my donation went obviously.
So all in all, it was a beautiful experience and I am happy to have this store in my life! =)
Bert is a Godsend! – Bert Levi Jewelers is the only place my husband and I buy jewelry/watches. They don't try to up-sell you on their designs and no pressure. They let the jewelry speak for itself. And the jewelry speaks volumes.
You get warm and personable service from both Bert and Gloria, or anyone in the store really. They literally treat you like part of the family.
They do great work and make you feel looked after, aiming to please and understanding budgets while helping you figure out what you want.
Nowadays, budgets can be a little smaller but Bert and his family understand this and the prices are overly fair. In fact, he promises that if you take your purchased jewelry somewhere else to be appraised that it will appraise for double. I didn't want to mention this without trying it, so my husband and I brought one of my rings to an undisclosed jeweler, and it did appraise for double, just a tad over to be exact. So I can confidently say that the claim is true and you will probably pay less then you really should.
Most of all the service is gold, it cannot be touched by any other jeweler. I don't know how he does it but Bert really has a way of making you feel at ease and at home. It's a gift and he uses it well. I only write reviews on places that are worth my time, and Bert Levi Family Jewelers is worth every minute.
Awesome engagement rings and service – So I came to BLFJ after a Yelp search. I just wanted to get my girlfriend of 4 years a nice engagement ring, and I didn?t want a horrible experience doing it. I went to a few of the usual big name places and met salespeople that were the fakest of the fake, horrible. They talked down to me and I felt insulted. I turned to Citysearch thinking that there has to be a place that has just normal helpful salespeople.
Bert?s place looked legit according to the reviews but I went in not expecting too much. I was greeted by Bert and he was very friendly. I explained my needs and budget and again that I just wanted something simple. I was praying that this would go well, and it was, but I still feared the gimmicks and surprise markups at the register. Bert seemed like an honest man, and he didn?t try to up sell me by any means, and the nice part is that each ring has a visible price attached to it. I ended up with a simple solitaire, which is the right style for my fianc
Thank you so much! We are so happy! – I am so thankful to this warm and loving family jeweler. They were so fantastic. They took the time to go through all our wants and we found the most perfect ring for our engagement. If you want to go to a jeweler you can trust, Bert Levi Family Jewelers is it! I cannot recommend them enough.
They made me feel comfortable. – I love this place for many reasons, but I will just talk about a couple:
They make you feel like family when you are there. Everyone knows their stuff and I felt like I found a "hidden San Diego gem" when I found this store. (no pun intended)
I like rubies. I have been wearing them my whole life. Little did I know, there is a big price difference between "lab created" rubies and genuine rubies. I have been wearing fake rubies my whole life and I did not know it.
Real rubies are a little cloudy. They don't look like perfect glass. The salespeople at Bert Levi can tell you how much your stone is worth and whether or not it was lab-created. If you go in this place and ask a lot of questions-- you will get a valuable education.
I love learning how to be a better consumer. I like a jeweler who explains everything to me and shows me that a perfect ruby is commonplace and good rubies are an investment. I like to be talked to respectfully.
If you use Bert Levi-- ask a lot of questions! You will learn a great deal-- just as I have!
They Make it Easy – I went to Bert looking for an engagement ring after several failed attempts to find what I was looking for a local jewelry stores. I was impressed with how professional they are. They helped me find exactly what I was looking for and helped keep it within my budget. I felt like they wanted me to be there, most other places just want to make a sale and get you out the door. Bert want's to make sure you are satisfied, and develops a relationship with you. I didn't know much about diamonds and engagement rings when I showed up, and I feel like an expert after my experience there. I'm satisfied and my now fiancée is in love with the ring I purchased. If you are looking for true customer service (which is very hard to find these days) I recommend you stop by Bert Levi.
I am very, very pleased – I always laugh when my friends buy their wives or girlfriends those $199 Valentine's Day specials that a certain chain store advertises every year.
You think your girlfriend doesn't watch TV? Believe me, she knows that you took NO TIME in picking out a present for her. Believe me, she knows.
If your budget is $199, go into Bert Levi, tell them your price range and they will find your girl something unique; something she's never seen before.
That's why I love this place. You can be a superhero and bring your girl something unique and, just as importantly, you'll be helping a small business.
