My husband buys all my Pandora charms from there. There is a section at the front of the store that they call a Pandora shop. Some of my neighbors have sold their old gold and jewelry there. I have my eye on one of their diamond wedding bands. Hope my husband gets it for our anniversary. I really like their new website, very easy to navigate.
Bella Cosa resized a gold ring for $30
less than another local jeweler. Their watch battery replacements are incredibly reasonable, too. Service is friendly and efficient.
This store has a wonderful selection of new and estate jewelry. Lots of different price points, too. I will definitely be back.
My wife and I have shopped Bella Cosa for 10 years and we enjoy the memories associated with the terrific pieces we always find here. Excellent staff and certainly a great place to buy quality.
I can't really vouch on the store,
service or the price, but my engagement ring from here is truly stunning.
The jeweler and his wife who I took it to for a resize were both marveling at the wonderful quality of work of the settings, the details and of course the cut and colour of the sapphire. I think they loved it as much as I do!
Anyway, I just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the jeweler in question who beautifully crafted the ring of my dreams :)
Let me be frank: I don't wear jewelry.
Unless you count my glasses.
So when it came time to plan out my Christmas shopping and I settled on building a Pandora bracelet for my mom, I was less than lost. I was utterly hopeless. Asking me to buy jewelry is a lot like asking a hamster to do your taxes: my big, pitiful eyes will be fixed in abject terror. And maybe my pencil gets a little chewed up.
Luckily, Bella Cosa had a special section set aside just for Pandora so I knew right where to go. A lovely saleswoman took the time to explain how the jewelry works. Poor clueless me thought I could just buy a bracelet and a charm and be done, but she helped me understand I also needed clips to hold the beads in place. When I asked if I could buy a catalog, she told me I could just take it! (Counter that to my experience at an online store, which wanted to charge me $5 for a jewelry box and $6.95 for a catalog!)
She must've sensed my nerves, because she even told me an adorable little story about a You Tube video she'd watched earlier in the day to make me laugh and hep put me at ease. And when the transaction was complete, she took the time to gift wrap my presents. She even gave me a beautiful free ornament!
I may do every other bit of my Christmas shopping on the internet, but for jewelry, I'm so glad I went here.
Bella Cosa sucks. I would avoid Bella Cosa in the future. I do not trust these people.
This review was a long time coming.
After I posted a thread in yelp talk about where to get an engagement ring, I was contacted by a yelper who works at Bella Cosa and talked the place up. They basically said that they could do a custom ring based on a ring I saw somewhere else, but way better like I wanted. I corresponded briefly via the internet and then took a trip to the shop.
I made three trips to the shop: The first to confirm what I wanted out of the ring and to get a general consultation and put down a deposit, the second to pick a center stone (a goregous deep blue sapphire), and the third to pick up the finished ring. Not only was the ring absolutely goregous (a 2/3rd carat deep blue sapphire flanked by a pair of smaller accent diamonds on a relatively simple palladium band), both the time and cost estimates that I had been given on day 1 was completely and totally accurate (and the cost actually was padded to include taxes, something I didn't expect).
The staff was totally professional, and when I wasn't talking with the particular yelper (who may or may not want to be identified in a public forum), the rest of the staff was helpful and not too bothersome when I wanted to just browse.
And most importantly, my fiancee absolutely loved the ring...and given that I refer to her as my fiancee now, I guess that's implied :) The ring had to be resized a bit, but that's not the fault of the jeweler, it was probably a size conversion problem as my fiancee only knows her UK ring size, which is a different scale.
All in all, these guys know their jewelery and if you want some custom work done, this is a great place to go and make it happen. If the yelper who sent me here wishes to be identified I'll edit their profile in, so you too can have as great an experiences as I did. When my fiancee gets her visa and comes over from the UK, we'll be coming in here for wedding bands.
