Notable Review: "I worked with Sam to design a custom engagement ring and it turned out beautifully! I was having a hard time finding a ring in yellow gold with fancy yellow diamonds and I chanced upon deBebians. Though the rings seemed out of our budget I submitted a request for a custom order. Sam reached out promptly and immediately sourced diamonds for me that were near our budget. Over the next two weeks, he worked diligently designing the ring of my dreams. I was very particular about the setting and wanted an antique style, each time I came back with a critique he made the adjustments until it was perfect. Throughout the process I found Sam to be personable, patient, and knowledgeable. The craftsmanship and stones are top-notch. I highly recommend deBebians!" - Amber M.
