We worked with Steven and Sarkis to find the perfect engagement ring. After having been to a couple other ring stores, we were quickly put at ease with how patient and not "sales-y" the staff were here. They are easy to work with, friendly, and have an incredible selection of jewelry. In the end, my fiance loved working with Steven on the perfect, simple engagement ring. Thin pave band with a 1.7 round-cut stone. A year and a half later, I still look down at my ring and am in amazement at how beautiful it is. :) In the time since we got our engagement ring, both wedding bands, and a diamond necklace from Giraux, we have referred several people to them. Coworkers and friends alike have gotten their rings here. Us, we were referred to Giraux by friends who have been going to Sarkis for their jewelry needs for 10+ years. They really know their jewelry and have fantastic service. We will be going to Giraux for as long as we can for all jewelry needs and continue to recommend everyone we know to Steven and Sarkis.
Last September my fiance got down on one knee and presented the most breath taking oval cut diamond engagement ring to me. It is simply gorgeous and we have Giraux to thank!! Their selection of fine jewelry and loose diamonds and cannot be beat. They have such an eye for quality and nothing compares to the options they have to choose from (and nothing compares to the prices as well!!!). My fiance worked with Giraux to find three loose diamonds to be set by their experts. Giraux worked tirelessly to find the best for him in a short period of time and we was so happy to be offered their assistance during the design process. My engagement ring is beautiful and I am so happy he worked with Giraux - I would suggest any couple to visit them!!
Our story is similar to many of the other reviews on here already. We visited several of the jewelers in the Gift Center/Jewelry Mart, and once we walked into Giraux, we knew we had found a business that treated its customers like family. We ended up working with Sarkis and Ariane to design 4 rings, one of which they found a smelter/refiner so that we could use some old family rings to melt into a new design. Overall, they ended up working with us to design an engagement ring that exceeded our expectations at a price that was 30% under our budget. The ongoing service for our rings has been exceptional, and visiting them is always a pleasure. Looking forward to celebrating many more milestones with Giraux.
If you are looking for an engagement ring, wedding band, or just a piece of jewelry to add to your collection, Giraux is your go-to place. Hands down. I had a family friend recommend me to Jasmine, as I was looking to invest in an engagement ring. Jasmine made sure I was informed every step of the way and worked with the budget I had. No sales pitches. No up-selling. No issues. I ended up with a STUNNING ring that exceeded my expectations in every regard. Thank you SO very much Jasmine, for the most enjoyable and memorable buying experience!!!
I love this place! Absolutely WONDERFUL costumer service. Sarkis is the best & is extremely helpful in working with whatever you are looking for. My husband & I designed my engagement ring here & Sarkis took it to a whole other level of awesomeness without being pushy & working within our price point! He was always just an email away if we had any questions during the process. We have referred our parents, friends & coworkers here & will continue to purchase future jewelry here.
My fiancé and I were in search of the perfect engagement ring but needed a lot of guidance to find what we were looking for. After going to a couple jewelers in Giftcenter & Jewelrymart in SOMA, we wandered into Giraux and knew we came to the right place. Sarkis was there from the beginning, patiently showing us different bands and diamonds, answering our varied questions, and giving us his opinions. Steven joined us as well and helped with the process. We sat on the big decision and returned the following week to look at the diamond again and ask more questions, but Sarkis never rushed us and gave us the space we needed. After purchasing the ring, Sarkis helped us with the paperwork we needed to get it insured. The ring was slightly loose and they resized it for me the day I brought it in so I wouldn't have to pick it up the next day. Our engagement (9+mile hike) and search for our perfect ring ended with something beautiful that we will always remember, thanks to Giraux.
Armine was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was knowledgeable and we felt we got the best deal for the diamond. Without even seeing what the ring would look like, it ended up being more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. I highly recommend this place if you want a custom, unique, delicate piece that priced competitively. So happy!
I didn't realize how tricky buying a wedding band would be! After visiting several other places, we came to Giraux. Armine was beyond lovely to work with. I had an idea in mind and she guided me towards something even more beautiful. I had changed my mind several times while we were there and she always remained helpful, patient and genuinely sweet. We purchased 2 rings at Giraux and I can't wait to see what we purchase next from them! They clearly hold customer service paramount to anything else. I'm happy to refer them to everyone and even happier to go back!
Fine Jewelry indeed! I am highly pleased with both the product and service of this Jeweler. I was recommended to contact Armine Mekhdjian, who was both a caring person, and knowledgeable expert. From answering an abundance of questions to unrivaled patience as I made my selection, she helped me find just what I was looking for with considerable respect to my wishes. Armine helped me in a very professional manner but it felt as though she was advising the way a close and considerate relative would. I would highly recommend her for any of your jewelry needs. I am proud to say that I had the experience of a valued customer, and I foresee becoming a loyal customer for many years to come. Giraux maintains the tradition of honest business where the importance resides in offering high quality jewelry and great value in customer satisfaction. As a closing note, my now Fiancé said "yes" and when I asked her opinion of the ring, she replied "Its Perfect." I cannot thank you enough Armine!
Thank you Sarkis and Jasmine, you guys are amazing. I've always brought you family and friends that thought they couldn't have their dream wedding rings or gifts designed at their budgets and you've always made it happen. They come ready to be disappointed and yet you guys work your magic making them leave with joy, and excitement because they've purchased their desired items at their budget. What I love is that you don't push large bad quality items instead you educate them and ensure that they get the best quality at the best price. Thank you!
We cannot thank Armine and Sarkis enough for our incredible wedding (and engagement) rings! After an unfortunate setback with my original engagement ring (purchased in a different state), Armine worked with my fiance and I to recreate the ring and include elements of my mother's original engagement ring. From the beginning, Armine provided us with honest feedback and options. She never pressured us to go one way or another and was patient with us while we asked a million questions. In the end, the new ring is more beautiful than I ever anticipated. Armine worked with the team to hand make my ring to fit the various vintage stones. Without a doubt, they created the most gorgeous and special engagement ring and wedding ring to match. In fact, I cried when she had my fiance place the ring back on my finger. My fiance's ring is also perfect for him. They had a bunch of options to choose from and Armine made my shopping adverse future husband feel very comfortable through the process. So long as I live in the Bay Area, I will go to Armine and Giraux for any and all my fine jewelry needs and I would recommend the same to anyone who asks. Thank you again!
