I highly recommend DeScenza. When my husband and I were planning on getting engaged, several people suggested that we go to DeScenza. When we went, we had the best experience. They carefully went over everything about diamonds from price to cut, style, etc. We didn't feel pressured to purchase right away, though my husband did end up getting the ring there a week later :) We couldn't have been more satisfied with the price and their guarantee. We had such a great experience that my brother also bought his engagement ring there as well. If you go, stop by the one in Hingham and ask for Kristen. She has great expertise on diamonds!

DeScenza Diamonds has a great quality of diamonds. They also take the time to teach you about diamonds.

I purchased a ring from a different retailer on a rather impulsive buy. Three months before my wedding I changed my mind and I am SO glad that I did. My fiancee and I went to DeScenza and were matched with the most perfect wedding band. My engagement ring is custom-designed by my fiancee, and now I have a wedding band that looks like it was custom designed to match! Loved the warmth of the staff.

As the groom I went to countless jewelery stores searching for the right ring. Aside from not really seeing much I liked but after my online research I realized it was overpriced and everyones help seemed limited. Then I came across DeScenza and it was clear right away that it would be the last one. Not only was Cristin there extremely helpful but made the process easy. I learned a lot there and she was determined to help find the right ring anyway necessary. I couldn't have been any happier with the process and my now wife loves her ring more than I could ever describe so it worked out perfectly. When it came to my ring they were equally as helpful and gave me a great deal on it.

I couldn't be more thrilled with our wedding bands from DeScenza. We have been longtime customers and they did not disappoint. We adore LauraLee! She was beyond helpful with our selection process, and is extremely professional. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with her and DeScena Diamonds throughout the years.
We registered with DeScenza as well - the items were top notch and were so different from your standard department store - truly a special way to celebrate your big day!
We also purchased wedding gifts for our attendees -- tremendous selection and customer service.
I highly recommend DeScenza Diamonds!

My family has shopped at DeScenza's for generations. When it was time to select a wedding ring, my fiancé and I shopped in Europe and here in the States and found exactly the rings we were looking for at DeScenza's. The selection and quality are superb and the customer service is incredible. We are so very pleased with our rings.

My Fiance bought my engagement ring at DeScenza Diamonds in Peabody and had a fantastic experience. My family has been shopping there for years, but this was his first experience there. He was so nervous ahead of time as he knew nothing about diamonds, but they gave him a full diamond lesson (he was able to fill me in on every detail of my ring!) He was so happy with the entire experience and really felt comfortable with the guy he worked with.
I LOVE my ring, it is absolutely gorgeous, I get comments on it all the time.. Since we got engaged (in December) two of my fiance's friends have followed suit, and gone to DeScenza's as well.
I can't wait to go back and buy wedding bands!

My husband was able to not only pick out each stone but he was also able to design the setting from scratch. DeScenza's educated him thoroughly on each step of the process and held his hand from beginning to end. 3 years later and I still receive complements on my ring. The design work is amazing. The quality- the best. The ring- stunning and completely personalized.
We went back for our wedding bands and again we found everyone to be super helpful and totally supportive!

What an incredible experience both my now husband and I had at DeScenza's:) My ring is BEAUTIFUL and the quality is superb. My husband had such an amazing experience with his purchase....from the "diamond education" he received to DeScenza's commitment to quality and customer service, he promises to return for our future anniversaries:)
Not only does DeScenza's specialize in jewelry, but they have an incredible selection of housewares. I registered for so many unique gifts (picture frames, napkin holders, china, platters, etc.) and can't wait to have guests over so I can show off all my new gifts!
DeScenza's is definitely a class act!

My husband purchased my engagement ring here which I absolutely love. We also purchased both of our wedding bands from here which was at a very reasonable price for the quality and diamonds. They have some of the best quality diamonds around. They were very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

My husband picked our my engagement ring in Boston with the help of a saleslady there....I owe her a HUGE thanks!
Since then I've gone to the Boston location for appraisals on other jewelry and to have something dipped in white gold, great service and price every time.
We went to the Hingham location for our bands just because it is closer to our house and easier to get to. Great experiences there as well.

My family has been shopping at Descenza for decades and my parents got their wedding bands at the Boston location. My husband and I followed tradition and used the same jeweler and could not be more pleased. They are a tried and true business for sure!

My engagement ring was purchased here, and I was truly surprised and my husband said they were so helpful during the process. We went back for our wedding bands, and again so extremely helpful, and everything came out beautiful. I catch myself all the time looking at the engraving of my wedding band.

My husband got my engagement ring through Descenza, so I can't speak much to his experience with that, but it was good enough that we chose them to find our wedding rings. We got our rings at the Peabody location (he got my engagement ring at the Boston location - where they also resized it for me easy peasy). What's also great about the Peabody location is that downstairs is a tasting location for Montilio's bakery!
Anyway, Linda helped me find the companion ring to complement my engagement ring and was very helpful with my husband's ring as well. Before we were introduced to her, the associate helping us wasn't quite as helpful (but I think she was new, so no big deal there).
Definitely great quality and prices (you get a discount if you get your wedding ring AND engagement ring there as well).

My family has been working with Joanne at DeScenza Diamonds in Downtown Crossing since before I was born (over 30 years), and I was delighted to have to opportunity to work with her for my engagement and wedding rings! DeScenza is a well-established business with excellent quality and prices well below retail. Like my mother, I am a picky customer and often don't see something that's "just right" in the display cases. Joanne worked with my then boyfriend to custom design an exquisite engagement ring, working for months looking at special ordered diamonds to get just the right stone. When it came time to shop for wedding bands, my (then fiance) found a wonderfully stylish (and wonderfully inexpensive) Triton band in the store. I, unfortunately, couldn't find a wedding band that looked nice with my custom engagment ring anywhere in MA. Of course, Joanne went to work having a fabulous set of custom bands made for me. Not only are the rings to my exact specifications, but they were done in NO TIME... and they resized and polished my engagement ring to look like new in one afternoon. I always know I'm getting the best deal at DeScenza with top quality, discount prices, and super service. The Boston store has the fastest service, as the people who do the making and resizing are right there.

Lovely jewelry and nice people!

My husband bought my engagement ring at descenza's so we decided we had to go back for my wedding band! The staff is very helpful and pleasant.. And you cannot beat the prices!

I splurged for my wedding jewelry but still wanted to get the best price. After I tried on about everything in the Framingham store, I found the perfect tennis bracelet and earrings. This is also where my husband found my engagement ring.

I love my beautiful diamond wedding band, but was not very happy with their customer service. The sales people were often rude when I would call or come in, and when I arrived to pick up my 2 single bands that were supposed to be fused together as one band, I was told that they did not have it at first, and then when they finally found it out back it was not fused together. This was an easy fix over the next couple days and it was more of an inconvience to wait for it, but I was not happy with the way they told me that it was not what I ordered and it was my fault for the band not being fused. Either way, I will be going elsewhere for further jewelry purchases.
