I have to recommend Jay and Adriane as I needed an engagement ring with the diamond from the grandmothers engagement ring. I was curious as to why I needed an appointment but when...


- My fiancee's rings that we designed with Jay came back from ""his people in New York"" a 3/4 size too small. Also, it wasn't exactly what he said it would be but said that he t...

J. Yontef did an excellent job turning inherited diamond brooches into a beautiful ring. He did an excellent job designing the ring, making sure I was happy with the design before it was made. He interviewed me at length so that he would know what sort of ring I wanted. Thank you, J. Yontef. more

J. Yontef and his wife, Adriane, truly know their craft. You will only receive the highest quality craftmanship and materials when you work with them. J is so trustworthy and professional--I hope he never retires! I can't count the number of times during the past ten years that I have received a compliment on my sparkling J. Yontef diamond. Truly a pleasure. Cannot imagine working with anyone else. more

From the groom-to-be: I had a wonderful experience with J in purchasing my fiance's engagement ring. He is incredibly insightful and worked with me to get precisely what I wanted. J went through an extensive process of teaching me about diamonds and ensuring that I get the best diamond for my budget. Going to J is easier and more enjoyable than going to a conventional jewelry store, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an engagement ring. I plan on going to J for all of my future jewelry purchases.\r \r From the bride-to-be: My ring is absolutely beautiful, and the diamonds in it are some of the prettiest I have ever seen. My fiance was able to work with J to get exactly what he knew I wanted. I appreciate all the time J spent learning about me and my style, and educating my fiance about diamonds and different ring designs. I think the process my fiance went through with J is much more special than simply going to a store and picking out a ring. I am so grateful to J for all that he did to create my amazing ring, and I know any girl would be lucky to have a ring from J. more

I first met Jay and Adriane in the spring of 2008. Jay designed a beautiful engagement ring for me. My wife loved (still loves) it. Jay was so easy to deal with and very fair. Jay has become my go to guy when I need a beautiful gift for my wife. I trust him to treat me in a very fair and professional manner. He also is great at educating me on the process. I never need to go anywhere else for my jewelry needs. Jay is the best in the business. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 11/16/2014

Unbeknownst to me at the time, my fiance went to Jay Yontef after much searching, knowing that he wanted someone who could create a custom engagement ring. My fiance met with Jay several times to design a ring that was exactly what he (and, ultimately, I) was looking for. He was able to tell him what he did and didn't like, and Jay provided professional recommendations about what would produce the best ring. He helped my fiance pick the diamond, and sort through the priorities for selecting the stone he liked best. My fiance went into the process knowing a lot about diamonds, and appreciated the wisdom Jay provided. He never felt pressured. Jay was a joy to work with.\r \r The ring itself is more beautiful than I could have imagined my engagement ring would be. The quality, craftsmanship, and elegance is phenomenal. Jay worked with my fiance to design a ring that would be proportional to my small hands and slight figure by asking my fiance for a picture of me with my hands showing. He also made sure to set the ring low in its setting so that it wouldn't sit so high up on my finger. \r \r After my fiance proposed and we found the ring to be a size too large, Jay resized it beautifully, and there's no mark on the ring showing it was resized. \r \r All-in-all, both my fiance and I are thrilled with the ring and the service Jay provided. We would both highly recommend him to those couples looking for an elegant and unique ring. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/19/2014

I had a few ideas of what kind of engagement ring my fiancé would want when I first met with J. and Adrianne, and I have to say that they went above and beyond my expectations. Not only did J. take the time to ask questions about my fiance, her job, her style, etc, he took the time to design something more elegant than I could have ever imagined. He explained the dynamics of buying a diamond to me and took the time to educate me about what to look for in a stone, and he was always quick to answer my questions and was easy to meet with. The final result was amazing. The ring's main stone is stunning, and J. took the time to make sure the smaller diamonds in the ring matched the main stone's color perfectly. My fiancé said it seemed like the ring was made for her--and it was! When she met with J. to get the ring sized, he was excited to meet her and explained some of the design process, and he made sure that the ring was sized to perfection. I can't recommend J. enough. There are plenty of jewelers out there, but he takes the time to create a unique, amazing product, works within your budget and provides a personalized experience that is unparalleled. He will certainly be my jeweler for life, and my fiancé is now looking forward to designing our weddings bands with him. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 10/7/2014

Working with Jay and Adriane has been so lovely. My now husband consulted them first for my engagement ring. It is absolutely stunning but what I love even more is the thought that went in to the ring and all that my husband learned in the process. There's already a story behind it, making it by far one of a kind and irreplaceable. While having the expertise needed for creating spectacular works of art, they also treat you like family at the same time, a combination which is hard to find. Overall an unparalleled experience and I would highly recommend them. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/28/2014

Jay did it again. Not only did he create my own custom ring that is a one of the kind heirloom. He also helped me create a custom pendant with the artwork my wife created. By far, he's one of the best out there. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/27/2014

After being referred to Jay by a relative, I made an appointment to discuss updating my Engagement Ring/Wedding band. From the start, Jay knew exactly what I was envisioning.\r I now have a beautiful wedding band with a Diamond set into the band. I can't be more pleased. I would highly recommend Jay Yontef.\r This review was written by Terry Paduch on 9/16/2014 with her full written permission to post this as written above.\r We normally do not do this, but our client asked us to post this for her, exactly as she wrote it.\r JY more

I feel very fortunate to have found J Yontef! I had a year long Ordeal with a local Jewelry Co. who made a custom ring for me. After two failed attempts and thousands of dollars, I knew that they were not capeable of doing what they said. Jay was so confient and also compasionate towards me for what I had been through. I simply explaind what I wanted the ring to look like and a few weeks later it was completed. It was everything I asked for and more! My husband took one look at the ring and said ""it looks exactly the way it always should have"". Im very proud to wear this ring for the rest of my life. It is absolutely beautiful and one of a kind. We could not be happier. Thank you so very much for your detailed design skills. I will always appreciate your talents and kindness. Now This is a Heart! I have had so many compiments and I tell them dont waste your money, Just go to J Yonef and he will get it right above your expectations the First time. Very happy, N.Barry more

I asked Jay and Adrienne if they could repair a broken necklace that had small monetary value but meant a great deal to me. They assured me it could be done and did an excellent job. I also left them with several pieces of vintage jewelry I had never worn. They advised me on restoring each piece and I arrived to pick up two lovely new necklaces and a beautiful bracelet. I enjoyed hearing their stories and learning from their experience, and would recommend them to anyone. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/23/2014

Jay and Addrienne were both very helpful, informative, and worked closely with me to create a custom engagement ring that was just want I wanted. They worked fast and the result was beautiful and they gave me a great deal. Very easy and nice to work with. My fiancé and I are very happy with the ring. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/18/2014

Jay and Adrienne made my experience selecting and buying an engagement ring exceptionally easy while being exceptionally professional, friendly, and caring. The amount of detail and care Jay pours into his work goes above and beyond what I originally expected when choosing a diamond and designing a setting for my fiancé's engagement ring. It was easy to set up an appointment with Jay. And when we met, he was genuinely interested in my thoughts while providing his expert guidance. Since I do not live in Nashville, Jay worked with my schedule to meet with me and he even me me early on a Saturday as my time was limited.\r \r It was clear from the beginning that Jay and Adrienne truly care about their customers and their end goal was to help me find the perfect diamond ring for my fiancé. He never exercised any ""sales"" tactics; in fact, we worked together as a team. \r \r In the end, Jay delivered exceptional value and a memorable life experience. In every respect, Jay exceeded my expectations. My fiancé now has one of the most beautiful rings on her finger and I thank Jay and Adrienne for all the expertise and hard work they put into making my engagement ring purchase a joyous occasion. more

What an exceptional experience we had with Jay Yontif !\r Jay went over and above for my fiancé and I in creating the engagement ring of my dreams.\r The combination of his expert talent, the eye he has for unique style and his endearing personality made our experience truly special.\r \r Rather than walking into a cookie-cutter jewelry store, there was something so sincere in getting to meet with Jay and his lovely wife and coming away with a one of kind treasure that will be in our family forever.\r Selecting and purchasing an engagement ring is always daunting, but Jay's guidance and hospitality makes the experience one you feel great about.\r He is a true and exceptional talent and we cannot wait to design another milestone piece of jewelry with him!\r more

I have known Jay Yontef for many years, starting when he worked in a renowed jewerly store in South Orange , New Jersey. When I could not find what I was looking for, I found him on the net and emailed him. I told him what I wanted to surprise my wife, whose 60tjh birthday was coming up and he did not let me down. I told him the birth stone and the price range and let him do he thing. Now I know why Jay and Adrianne are world renowed jewelers. I was astonished at the finished product, the quality and the professionalism they have. It came in on budget and my wife was overwhelmed when I gave it to her. It was AMAZING!\r \r I let them go and they did not let me down. They are fabulous Jewerlers and recommend them to anyone that wants the most beautiful piece of jewelry they can get for their wife or girlfriend. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 5/4/2014

My experience with J. Yontef Diamonds & Custom Jewelry was exceptional. Jay was very friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and very patient with me during or consultations. He educated my husband and I on the different aspects of selecting diamonds. His wife Adrienne made us feel most welcome each time we arrived. The day I received my ring I was overjoyed with how beautiful it was. If you are in search of a passionate and honest jewelry broker, I highly recommend J. Yontef. \r Thank you once again Jay and Adrienne for a wonderful experience. \r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/29/2014

Jay Yontef and his wife Adrienne provide incredible customer service and amazingly beautiful custom jewelry. They take the time to listen to what the ""piece"" means to you from an emotional standpoint (is it a family heirloom to be reset? Or a brand new ring to celebrate a new engagement?) Either way, they take the time with each customer to insure that the finished product is not only a stunning piece of jewelry, but also a reflection of the person and the circumstances surrounding it. I would highly recommend J. Yontef to anyone who appreciates personal, genuine service and who wants to be involved in the design of their jewelry (with the advice and assistance of a true jeweler, of course!). Great experience from beginning to end. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/23/2014

I met with Mr. Yontef for around 1.5 hours to discuss a $20,000 ring purchase. After our consultation he decided for whatever reason that he did not want my business and was very rude about it. Don't waste your time or money on this jeweler. He does not feel that he should earn his business. Look elsewhere if you want a friendly experience with a jeweler who cares. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 3/16/2014

During the Christmas holidays, I had the pleasure of meeting Jay and Adriane through a mutual acquaintance. After discovering that they design custom jewelry, my husband and I decided to have something special made as an anniversary/birthday gift. Since we both know very little about jewelry, we did a lot of research on our own as well as read numerous reviews about Jay and Adriane. The entire experience from start to finish was an absolute pleasure. We learned more from them than we could have possibly learned from the internet. Not only were they extremely patient with us, but they listened to what we wanted. Jay kept us informed throughout the entire process. My necklace is stunning! I was at a loss for words when I saw it. The Yontefs exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a custom piece of jewelry to look no further than J. Yontef Diamonds & Custom Jewelry. Both Adriane and Jay are true perfectionists, professionals and a delight to work with. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/18/2014

I recently inherited a diamond ring from my grandmother. The ring contained beautiful diamonds, but the setting was extemely outdated. My goal was to re-set the diamonds into a simple 5 stone diamond ring. After being treated poorly by the larger jewlery stores in Green Hills, I found Jay and Adrienne through a google search-- and I am so glad that I did! I provided Jay with a few images of what I wanted. He then created a CAD image of what my ring would look like. One week later, the ring was on my finger! \r \r Jay worked with my budget, and I ended up getting a custom ring (including a GIA appraisal) for cheaper than it would have cost at any of the larger jewlery stores! \r \r I could not recommend Jay enough-- he was a pleasure to work with, he is passionate about his job, and the finished product far exceeded my expectations. more
