Engagement ring from 1990

My husband was in the area for work, my then fiancée went to the store next door as well as Zales… we were directed to de Jonghe’s. We were able to secure an appointment in the afternoon. We were 20 and 18 years old and were not dismissed. Mr. de Jonghe assisted us with the knowledge of the diamond cut color clarity size, he helped us decide on the band. I am simple and my husband is not… He went back to Mr. de Jonghe and I got exactly what I wanted. He designed a simple flat band with a short setting because I do so much with my hands the higher settings were not comfortable. He placed 2 small marks , / / on each side of the diamond and I was happy. The carat is .27 which is more than perfect 28 years later. My diamond still shines and I won’t let my husband replace it with any anniversary ring. About a year of owning the ring my diamond setting broke, I called the office and returned my ring and diamond to Mr. de Jonghe. He repaired the diamond setting with a platinum setting for the mount. My diamond has not had an issue since. We moved to Virginia (for the job) and were able to locate a jeweler to match Mr. de Jonghe’s flat band simple for both of us.
Thank you for making what could have been an exhausting search and not pushing us in debt to purchase something overwhelming.
Many thanks.
I still tell people about your shop and the wonderful experience we had. A couple of friends over the years said they had the same professional service.
