Grandma left me a beautiful ring that did not ever fit right when I used it as my wedding band.... so the beautiful, magical and lovely folks at Michael John Jewelry took grandma’s diamonds and remade my ring. I just want to cry it’s so beautiful.

I could not be happier with my engagement ring!! Michael John Jewelry did an amazing job customizing my ring to exactly what my fiance and I wanted. I haven't stopped receiving compliments - everyone tells me how unique and eye catching it is. I honestly haven't seen a more perfect ring and diamond EVER! Michael John Team is incredibly talented and helped my fiance, Gabe, with every step of the way and guided him in the right direction when it came to design. I would recommend them to anyone! Haven't stopped staring at my ring for the past week.

I am thrilled to be writing this testimonial of my experience with Michael John Jewelry.
My fiancé and I actually designed my engagement ring together. He had received a family diamond and wanted to create a custom design using the family stone for my engagement ring. We met with The Michael John Jewelry Team and after showing them various designs I loved, they designed the most beautiful ring I have ever seen.
My fiancé proposed while we were on vacation in Florence, Italy at the Piazza Michelangelo. Not only was the proposal perfection, but it was made even more special with my custom engagement ring. I cannot thank Michael John Jewelry enough for the superb craftsmanship and attention to detail put into creating my ring. Thank you!
After 14 years of marriage, my husband wanted to upgrade my wedding ring. As you can as you can imagine, I was thrilled but totally lost as to what I really wanted. I looked through many pictures and even visited many jewelry stores. Yet nothing captured my heart. I visited Michael John Jewelry showroom and was greeted warmly by the staff. I was given such personal attention, I felt like a celebrity.
I still wasn't sure what I wanted and described to them what I had imagined as the perfect ring. After only two visits to the showroom, they custom made the most stunning ring. Above and beyond my imagination in beauty. The quality is fantastic. And the cost of this amazing ring you definitely cannot find anywhere else! Trust me I shopped around. Four years later, I still get compliments every day, and I am approached by women who want to know who and where I got my ring.
Michael John Jewelry is truly talented and has a vision of what women like. Thank you so much for making me so happy.
My experience with Michael John Jewelry in selecting my bride's engagement ring was top-notch. They warmly greeted me into their showroom and were generous with their time as we reviewed various stones and ring designs and ultimately sketched out the perfect ring for my bride. A few days later, Michael John had sent me a gorgeous rendering of how the ring itself would look once created. After I approved the design, the ring was made and when I came to pick it up, I was blown away by the beauty and quality of the work. I also appreciated that John Hezar frequently made himself available by phone throughout the process to answer my many questions. My bride LOVES her ring- it was exactly as she had dreamed- and she's proud to wear it. She smiles every time she puts it on.
I would not hesitate to buy from Michael John again after the experience I had with them.
When my fiance proposed to me it was the best day of my life, but nothing compared to the moment when he got down on one knee and presented me with the most exquisite ring I have ever seen. Every day I feel so excited to wear this memento of our love and see it sparkle. Not only is it comfortable to wear, but it is hand crafted with such magnificent cuts and detail. I have never seen anything like it and its uniqueness receives daily compliments. I am so honored to receive such a beautiful gift and I thank Micheal John Jewelry for the quality, care and craftsmanship that went into this piece of art."

I've been going to Michael John for years! The first pieces they made for me was my engagement ring and then my delicate eternity wedding bands. Since then I've purchased or commissioned many other pieces - all of which I adore. I appreciate their artistry and fair prices. I've happily introduced many of my friends to them and they've also become hooked on their jewelry (much to their husbands' charging). It's always a pleasure dealing with the Michael John Team - a true, genuine people and artists.
From the first conversation with Michael at Michael John Jewelry, I knew this was the best place to find the engagement ring of my dreams. It is a family-owned business where you get a much more personalized shopping experience than in any of the other major chains. In addition, all of the rings are unique, hand- and custom made. My fiancé had proposed to me with a cocktail style ring so that I could be involved and interactive with obtaining the exact engagement ring of my dreams. Thanks to Michael John., that is just what I got!
For starters, everyone there is very kind. Michael was extremely friendly and immediately made my fiancé and I feel comfortable about making such a massive (and expensive) decision. We had a bond from the start and I hugely enjoyed learning from him about different cuts, colors, clarity, etc
They aren't like some other stores/jewelers that jump down your throat as soon as you walk in. What I appreciated was that I wasn't being pushed into something I didn't like. I worked directly with Michael start to finish. Michael let me try on various styles, look at many different shapes, and explained to me the grades and sizes of different diamonds which I love, love, loved.
After a couple of visits (some visits alone, some with my mother-in-law/mother, and some with my fiancé) I finally decided on what I wanted and even then I emailed him constantly last minute making changes. The entire time, my madness was received with nothing but patience and professionalism from Michael. Thankfully so, because I have the most perfect ring now! I can't take my eyes off it! I was inspired by a Harry Winston design for my band (nine karats of eternity emerald cut diamonds). He took the design I liked and kicked it up a notch by hand placing an extra karat worth of micro pave diamonds around every single emerald cut diamond. It’s now unique and one-of-a-kind! My engagement ring was designed entirely by Michael and his staff. I told him what I liked (daintiness, micro-pave diamonds, etc) and he came up with a stunning design that I quickly approved. The quality of the work on my engagement ring and my wedding band can be spotted from a mile away. You can tell that a lot of hard work and effort was put into them and that is what I love the most about it. We also designed and purchased my husband’s wedding band from Michael John. It is subtle, classy, yet still has hand placed dazzling diamonds throughout each side of the ring.
Michael John truly obtains Harry Winston/Tiffany & Co quality GIA certified diamonds, but sells them to you for a fraction of what the big name designers would sell them to you for. I am so happy to have found this hidden gem of a jeweler (pun intended) and I will only be buying any diamond pieces I will ever own from them for the rest of my life.
I highly recommend any person interested in purchasing a piece of diamond jewelry (NOT just engagement rings) to go to Michael John. They are very honest, reasonable, reliable, and professional. They will not steer you in the wrong direction, have beautiful pieces, and are willing to customize down to the very last detail! My fiancé and I couldn't have had a better experience.

One of the most brilliant designers imaginable. We received digitally reconstructed pictures throughout the design process, but nothing could compare us for how beautiful the ring was going to be when it was complete. Not a single day goes by that compliments are not given to us, and the best part is, it is a one of a kind ring and designed perfectly to her taste. We have since been asked by multiple people for the contact information of our Jeweler, Michael John Jewelry, for anything from an engagement ring to a "thank you present" from a colleague to his wife after 25 years of marriage. I will never have jewelry designed by anyone else and we couldn't be more grateful that they designed our engagement ring. Thank you again! With much adoration,

If you are looking for quality experience the Michel John team service is to the highest standard, you are really given true royalty treatment. Whether you are going to browse the amazing collection or schedule a intimate designing session to create the bridal set of your dreams you will surely leave impressed. My bridal set is the symbol of our love in our marriage thanks to Michel John team for creating the most perfect design that is just for me!
One word to describe this ring is exquisite. We couldn’t have anticipated how happy we would be. It is exactly what we wanted. We have used words like “gorgeous”, “stunning” and “perfect” to describe the ring, but that doesn’t really do it justice.
Everyone will tell you about the 4Cs, but no one will tell you about the “other 2 Cs”….Craftsmanship and Care. The team at Michael John Jewely is knowledgeable and the craftmanship and care exceeded beyond our expectations. From beginning to end, the whole experience working with Michael and his team made the entire process as seamless and stress free as possible. The end result was more than we could have ever dreamed, we couldn’t be happier and cannot stop starring at the ring. He took our vision and made a masterpiece. Thank you Michael John Jewelry!

My experience with Michael John Jewelry in purchasing my engagement ring and our wedding bands was just the best! My cousin had purchased her wedding rings from them a few years prior and they are beautiful, so I knew I had to go to them first. The Michael John Team was extremely patient and showed me so many designs because I had no idea what I was really looking for. They educated me on what to look for in buying a diamond and then showed me a setting they had recently designed and I fell in love! Since it was my first visit looking for engagement rings they encouraged me to look around to make sure there were not any other designs I liked better but even after doing a little research, I could not find anything better their your design! I still love my wedding set almost three years later and I constantly get compliments on my ring! They were great in working within our budget and we love our wedding bands! Thank you! So glad my sister brought me to them!

I have been a devoted customer of Michael John Jewelry for over 15 years. Over the course of many years and several purchases, the trust, quality and confidence of their pieces is what prevents me from going elsewhere. Although I travel extensively to places on the globe where semi precious stones are abundant, I only buy from Michael and John because I know their high standards for the best quality and their incredible craftsmanship. I have referred many friends who are amazed at how fair their pricing is compared to retail stores and pieces that you can find nowhere else. I am so proud to see how far they have come and wish them the best as they continue to make so many women happy as they have me!
Thank you again for the amazing ring! There was no way in hell she could say no to that work of art!
My Fiancé and I had the best experience we could ever imagine at Michael John Jewelry. I was able to pick out exactly what I was looking for and Michael John Team was such a huge help! I CAN NOT wait to show off these stunning pieces. Thanks again Michael John Jewelry!
Then and Now.
We met Michael Hezar the summer of 1991 in the Los Angeles Jewelry Mart after spending several hours viewing hundreds of engagement rings at as many jewelry venders. Towards the end of the day, my then girl friend Krista and I were frustrated, confused, and skeptical about the whole Los Angeles Jewelry Mart when we happened upon Michael’s small showcase.
Michael was close to our age and had a completely different approach than all the other sales associates that we had met earlier that day. I specifically remember asking Michael how can we trust that the jewelry we purchase at the Jewelry Mart is real? Michael responded that in this business, you only will make it by referrals and return customers.
Michael asked us what we were looking for and then suggested that we should just focus on the center stone diamond itself. He said the center stone will be the focal point of your ring. The setting, band and other parts of the ring are all secondary to the center stone. The diamond should be of a quality that when others look at your ring it needs to be clear of inclusions and other flaws.
We took his suggestion and I used my entire engagement ring budget on a high quality 1 carat marquee as the center stone. Since our initial engagement ring purchase, we have upgraded Krista’s engagement ring with Michael four times over our twenty-three years of marriage. (See picture)
We are so proud of Michael Hazar and how he has grown his business with hard work, integrity and style; we have referred countless of friends and family to him over the past two decades and will continue to do so. I have three daughters and if they decided to be wed, they will only wear a Michael John ring.
