CMI is amazing. We're last minute people and they were so creative and accommodating. My engagement and wedding band didn't arrive in time (because we waited too long to order) and so CMI suggested resizing the floor models so we could still have the rings we needed for our events. They have such a unique, amazing selection, great quality, and their prices are reasonable! Never once did we feel sales pressure either! Philicia was simply amazing. My fiancé proposed in the dark and they gave him a box with an LED to make sure I could see the ring! So cute and thoughtful. This will be our lifetime jewelry store. And on top of this, supporting CMI means you're supporting local business and not at some chain where everyone across the country has your same ring.
My Fiancé found my engagement ring here and it was absolutely perfect! It was a flawless diamond and the exact setting I wanted. I am greeted with a warm smile and hello when I walk in and when I leave. I also purchased my fiance's wedding band from here and they gave me the best price possible for it! i would recommend this store to any and everyone for all your jewelry needs. They have a large selection to choose from and a wonderful staff.
If you are in the Triangle, you should 100% head over to CMI (even if you aren't local, it's worth the travel). My fiancé and I went to look at engagement rings prior to our engagement, and it was a great experience. When you walk into the showroom, you are taken aback by all of the beautiful selections. We were greeted and were able to go through the selections of engagement rings (there are A LOT! Any style you are interested in is there!) by ourselves. After we had made our round, a member of the CMI team patiently went through every case with us, and let me try on rings I was interested in. After explaining what I was interested in in a ring, and what I expected out of a ring, she explained the pros and cons of each ring, which was so helpful, as I hadn't thought of a lot of the things she pointed out! She told me that at CMI, no one works off of commission, so I did not feel any of the uneasy feelings of "upselling," which was great. After going through all of the cases, she wrote down the ones I loved. My fiancé then met with Kim, where Kim further helped him pick one out, and it is my dream ring! I recommend CMI to anyone looking to get engaged!
Hands down the best jeweler I have ever been to! My fiance and I were shopping for engagement rings, and being non-traditional I did not want a diamond. Every single jeweler we went to prior to CMI pressured us into diamonds, diamonds, and more diamonds. I was told why certain things would not work and was not given other options. When we went to CMI we talked with Phelicia who was amazing in helping pick out the setting and giving us ideas on stones. Their selection was amazing and Phelicia let us spend as much time as we wanted trying on different styles. She helped us narrow down favorites, and suggested the band we ended up selecting! She scoured the gem markets for a pear shaped Tsavorite and a few weeks later it was in the store. It was beautiful, everything we wanted, and totally me. There was absolutely no pressure to buy at any point during our shopping experience, and we even got a discount for the future when we bought our bands (which we have also done!). CMI is amazing and I won't be going to any "big box" jewelry stores again!
I was able to create the perfect ring at CMI. The entire process of choosing the engagement setting and center diamond was a very memorable experience. Thanks to Keith for creating such a wonderful piece of jewelry for my family.
We love CMI! We went in to look at engagement rings and were overwhelmed by the selection as well as the beautiful showroom. The staff is so helpful and we really felt no pressure from them at ant point in our experience. They answered all of our questions, and we even learned a little, which made us feel even more confident in our purchase. I will definitely refer CMI to all of my friends and family.
I heard about CMI through some family friends. They had been buying their jewelry there for years, so I had to take a look for myself! Their showroom is quite large and they have many brands to choose from. But the main thing that stood out to me was their customer service and willingness to find what I was looking for in an engagement ring. They worked with their sources to find the perfect diamond within my budget, quality, size, etc. They even helped me customize the ring to make it even more special and unique. The finished ring arrived right on time for that once in a lifetime moment. I highly recommend working with CMI if you're searching for a unique stone that other big box stores just won't have. Their customer service is excellent and they care about their customer loyalty!! Thanks CMI!
Kim at CMI was wonderful to work with; he helped my fiancé Brian pick out a gorgeous Fana New York double halo setting. My ring is absolutely stunning, and the clarity of the diamonds are excellent. I constantly get compliments on my ring with people asking me where I got it, and how nice the diamond quality is. Brian was referred to CMI by a colleague of his, and now we refer others to CMI as well. They provide outstanding service, beautiful jewelry, and great quality! I can’t wait to marry my fiancé Brian on August 7th and have my matching Fana New York wedding band placed on my finger. Thank you CMI for the great service and adding to my magical day! -Bree Winters | Bride | 08-07-2017
My husband and I went to CMI to re-vamp my original engagement/wedding ring for our 25th Anniversary. We worked with Felicia to find a new, more modern setting for my engagement stone. She was very helpful in navigating the hundreds of options available, offering good advice when I tried to select a band that would owerhelm my original stone. She even had a great suggestion about what to do with my original setting, put a cubic zirconia in it for use when I don't want to wear my good set - vacationing in a foreign country anyone?!!! The finished product is beautiful, it pays homage to my original stone and has a more current look, just what I wanted! Would not hesitate to use CMI for all my jewelry needs, if they can make me happy with my new wedding set, they can do anything!!!!
After shopping at several stores in the Triangle area, CMI had by far the best and most diverse selection of engagement rings and diamonds, as well as the most helpful staff. I think engagement ring shopping can be a little overwhelming with all the options available, but Philicia helped me figure out exactly what I wanted and then make it happen quickly and for a great price. The staff are also very good about communicating with customers throughout the whole process, including working with you on any custom touches you might want. Most importantly, my fiancee absolutely loves the ring.
My fiance was so pleased with the engagement ring purchasing experience that he logged into my theknot.com account and reviewed CMI under my name (Cynthia H.). Now that we both have our wedding bands from them, I'd also like to give my support to everyone at CMI...so I made him his own account that I can write a review under! From start to finish there was no pressure. Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic to help us find the right wedding bands. Mine was easy, it matched the engagement ring. My fiance on the other hand ended up getting a custom, hand engraved ring. The CMI team worked hard to come up with the best option for the design he wanted and even found a way to come in under budget! The final product was a true work of art and exceeded our expectations. I can't imagine buying jewelry anywhere else after the amazing experiences we had with CMI.
Bess selection I have ever seen! Absolute professionals. Found a jeweler for life!
CMI worked very hard to find me the wedding band of dreams. My husband and I had a wonderful experience. All of their staff is extremely knowledgeable, and we felt zero pressure when shopping. I highly recommend CMI!
CMI designed my engagement ring and made it just the way I wanted. The quality of the ring was impeccable. The staff was excellent and super helpful. My husband and I went there several times to resize rings and were always helped promptly! They had a large selection of engagement settings and wedding bands, and were always willing to customize any item we chose. The jeweler is onsite most days. Philicia was our main consultant and is absolutely wonderful!
She said YES! Thank you all for an amazing experience. We could not be happier!
Absolutely best jeweler I have dealt with. The level of professionalism, honesty, and consideration here is top notch. Nobody works on commission which removes the nasty sales pressure and tactics. I've purchase an engagement ring and wedding band over the past year. At all times and with all employees it's been a great experience. If you are tired of the radio pitches and bad marketing, head to CMI and talk with Kim. They will help get you informed and on your way to making smarter purchases!
My wedding set was stolen which was very unusual. Kim was amazing to work with. He was so committed to finding the right diamond and recreating the original setting he even brought a jeweler out of retirement to create it. Amazing commitment to excellency. I wouldn't go anywhere else to purchase jewelry.
Before going to CMI, I visited all of the main big box jewelry stores, and none can compare to CMI. The selection at CMI is outstanding! I came to CMI with an idea of an engagement ring, and Philicia helped me custom design the perfect the ring. The whole process took around 3 months, and during that time Philicia was very professional and always willing to help. Contrary to other big box stores, CMI does not work off commission. In my opinion and experiences this provided me with a ring shopping experience and final product. I would highly recommend CMI and Philicia!
I worked with Sherri, Philicia, and Tim and they were amazing throughout the process from the engagement ring to both wedding bands. We had customized rings for all 3 and they came out perfect. They took the time to work with us to get exactly what we wanted and even then ensured it was right before they contacted us to let us know it was done. Great people!
My fiancé bought my beautiful ring from CMI. Every time I have been in to get it resized or cleaned everyone is always very nice. I get so many compliments on my ring, it just sparkles in comparison to others I have compared it to. I highly recommend CMI!
CMI Jewelry was extremely personable and helpful from begining to end. From the moment I walked into the store I was made welcome by all of the staff. Philicia took the time to show me every piece I was interested in, until I found the perfect setting and diamond. Furthermore CMI went above and beyond to make sure that I got my ring as quickly as possible, without compromising their work. The ring turned out absolutely stunning, was ordered and finished quickly, and included an appraisal. I will definitely be using CMI for our wedding bands, and any other jewelry purchase in the future, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!

Outstanding value and customer respect!Reviewed on 10/31/2015
My husband has shopped at CMI for years. So when our son was frustrated finding a quality ring in his price range, his dad brought him here. The staff is super knowledgeable. No pressure, no hype. Just great selection and service. And the ring--custom set and sized--was ready in an hour!
Helped me make a one of a kind ring for my girl!Reviewed on 10/31/2015
I could tell right away that CMI's staff really knew what they were talking about and they helped me build just the perfect ring for my bride. She still gets compliments on it to this day! I have also bought several watches and other pieces from them as I know I have something that I will cherish for a long time and is not just cookie cutter. Excellent value for my money!
