JB Robinson Jewelers - Poor Craftsmanship and Care
Engagement Ring - Complaint
ZANESVILLE, OHIO -- My fiancé ordered my ring from JB Robinson on May 11, 2013 and they told him that since it was a custom designed ring that it would take a few weeks to get it made and in the way that he wanted. He picked it up May 25, 2013 and ended up surprising me with the proposal on June 1, 2013 with our friends present. I had my ring for 4 days and took it in to JB Robinson to get it sized because it was slightly big. Since I was sending it away to get sized I decided that I would like it engraved with our initials in cursive. I watched the sales associate write the note and they sent it away. Two weeks later my ring comes back to the store and they call me to let me know it is ready to pick up. When I go in to get my ring, the engraving is in bold block letters (not cursive as requested) and there is yellow on my white gold band. Simply unacceptable; so we send it back. They have my ring for another week and call me again on June 25, 2013 to let me know that my ring is in once again. I look at the ring and you cannot even read the initials that I requested be engraved into my band. They are on top of each other. At this point I am upset and crying in the middle of the store because they have not only messed up my ring for the 2nd time, it needs to be sent out AGAIN. I picked out a new font for the initials and told them that the numbers were good and not to change them. The manager was able to push back our first payment at my request because we did not wish to make a payment on a ring that I didn’t even get to wear the first few weeks of our engagement. We still get to pay the extra interest. I get my ring back June 28, 2013 and they have changed my numbers, and there is a dent in my band from where they have engraved my band.
At this point I have called it quits on getting any of my work done at JB Robinson. I took my ring and I have since gone to another jewelry store capable of doing work in their store. I had planned on buying our wedding bands at JB Robinson also, but have since changed my mind because of the poor craftsmanship and not so careful handling of my very expensive ring ($7100.00).
I could not be any more disappointed in my experience and do not plan on ever going back to purchase jewelry from this store. Would not recommend to anyone.
