Complaint / review text:
I have used Vellas Jewelry several times. I had him make my Mom a Mother's Day Ring, My Wedding Bands, and a Ring I bought for myself.
This man is ripping people off!!! My wedding bands were supposed to be white gold and they are turning! I took them to 4 pawn shops to try to sell and no one would buy or even loan money on them because they are not real gold!!! I went to ron and told him no one would buy the rings, he took the mans back for $70-i paid $350. He knew it wasn't real so he didn't want me to have it!!!
THE RING I HAD MADE FOR MYSELF WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A SMOKED DIAMOND IN IT AND WHEN I GOT IT— IT HAD A PURPLE STONE - I mentioned it to him immediately and he said that is what you ordered and and that was a smoked diamond (WHY IS IT PURPLKE THEN?) it wasn't what I ordered-I HATE PURPLE!!! -I was in a hurry to get to work so I just took it with me because I was afraid he would take out the diamonds in it and so I just tried to be happy—I kept it a long time and never even wore it. So finally - I TOOK IT BACK AND TOLD HIM I WAS UNHAPPY HE SAID HE WOULD PUT A BLACK DIAMOND IN IT -showed me the diamond he was going to use-HE FLAT OUT LIED TO ME!!! It took 2 weeks to get it back and i'm sure if i was to take it to another jeweler they would say the diamonds were fake too because one of them has fallen out so i believe he changed them out!!! I have never had a problem with them before!!! The stone looked black in the store but it is dark green!!!
i was so mad!!! Anyone that has ever used this guy is getting screwed—take it to someone and see if its real i promise it's not!!! And i guarantee he knows who wrote this!!! Thanks ron for screwing me out of $2000 i greatly appreciate it and i will tell all about you i promise!!! I have bought so many pieces of jewelry here that it makes me sick to even look at it.
And now that I doin't want it I can't even sell it because its junk. I have never been so disappointed in my life. This guy acts like he is honest and good but he is definitely not.
I will never be able to trust any jeweler again because of you — and i haven't bought a piece since!!! This is terrible to do to your hard working customers that are keeping your sorry butt in business!!! ~ you should be ashamed of yourself ron vella!!! ~
