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... Read More 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.

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... Read More 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... Read More 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!
