My groom got my engagement ring from Mervis and we got our wedding bands from here as well. They are really great and professional!

Great friendly staff. I bought an engagement ring with Mervis 26 years ago and I have never regretted it.

My diamond ring was from Mervis and it was a Tacori. It so happened that I got to know about their amazing collection through my sister. She has a halo Tacori ring with a round center -- which I liked, but I wanted something a bit different. (Our mom and all our family basically... Read More has rounds, which is ok, but not for me). I went with my then BF to try on cushion cut Tacori rings -- and lo and behond -- he brought one home for me just a few months later! Yay!! Makes me smile just thinking about it.

I wanted to get a ring for my now-fiance but was nervous about where to start. I asked around and multiple people mentioned that they shopped at Mervis and I should check it out. I’m glad I did. The staff was helpful & knowledgeable. I told them a little about what I knew I... Read More wanted and they brought out great options. Some were similar to what I had seen on their website and some were completely unique. Monica took her time to help me pick out the best & most beautiful ring for our price range. Both my fiancee and I were extremely pleased with their service and will be back to get the matching wedding bands in a few months.

In the last one year I've bought an Engagement ring and a Wedding band from Mervis. Safe to say that I've found a Jeweler for life. Special thanks to Lisa Binder who is an absolute life saver!!! My first experience with Mervis was in July 2007, when I turned to them for help... Read More after another jeweler failed to deliver what I needed. With two weeks to the proposal date I was left high and dry without a ring to propose with. Then came Lisa who first calmed me down and then started reaching out to the designers in NY. Within two weeks I got the ring I wanted, just in time for the big proposal. My second experience was only a few hours back. I was looking for a wedding band that matched the engagement ring. I reached out to trusty Lisa and explained her what I needed. The price of the wedding band from the same designer had recenlty gone up substantially. Knowing my budget, she went out of her way to work with the desingers to get the ring at the price before the hike. She could have easily sold the ring to me at the higher price and I would have bought it. But she did not. Her commitment to her clients speaks volumes about her and the service that Mervis provides to its clients. Buying diamonds and rings is a daunting task for any guy. We need someone to help us who we can trust. Mervis is the place to go and Lisa is the person to talk to.

After visiting other jewelers in the area and being unimpressed with the level of service, we recently went to Mervis looking for an engagement ring. We had a wonderful experience working with Mika Rocket! We never felt rushed or pressured during any of our visits with her. She...

She took the time to understand what we were looking for and worked with the designer to create the PERFECT ring that fit within our budget. It's exactly what we wanted!

Dodi Giuliani is amazing!!!! She worked tirelessly to make my wife's engagement ring perfect.

Absolutely!!!! If you want extra special treatment with your diamond purchase, go see Dodi.

It is impossible to live in the DMV without hearing about Mervis Diamond Importers. I must admit I was a wee bit leery at my first visit to their showroom in Tysons corner. My partner and I decided to visit after we attended a wedding expo in VA were we were treated a little... Read More like a curious oddity. So many vendors seemed excited to work with a gay couple. It all rang a bit hollow to me, so I think I was a little angsty when we approached the Mervis store with "1-800-her love" running through my head. My partner and I drew in a deep breath and waited to be buzzed into the showroom. We were greeted warmly by their receptionist and were were asked if we would like a refreshment. We told the receptionist that we were interested in speaking with someone about diamond wedding bands for men. She introduced us to Fazken Krikorian, who walked us to his office. He offered us a seat and began asking us questions. No pressure, no pushiness, just honest interest in hearing what we were thinking about. We showed him some photos and he gave us feedback on what he thought the pros and cons were of each ring. He encouraged us to think about two custom rings. He explained that from how he understood our interest and extrapolating from the photos, custom was the way to go. Fazken walked us through each stage of the design of the rings. He guided us with visual aids, specifically, he brought several bands along with more loose diamonds than I have ever seen in my life. He explained to us that as you select bigger diamonds the height of the ring must also grow. As we were both clear that we did not want one of those lollipop diamond rings on our finger or a big solitar, he began to sketch out a ring design that we both fell in love with. Now we just needed to find two identical diamonds, easy right? Not quite. Apparently, finding two stones of the same carat, cut, clarity and color is not easy. Fazken, though, was undaunted. It took a bit of time to locate the twin of the original diamond we selected but patience paid off. We even received several phone calls from Mr. Mervis letting us know how the search was proceeding. When the second diamond was located Fazken invited us into the showroom to check it out and compare it to our original diamond. With each stone we received GIA reports (which was so helpful in providing information that the naked eye could not see). Since we had already approved the CAD that Fazken generated for the ring, we were able to move immediately to manufacture of the ring. In less than two weeks we received a call from Fazken that our rings were ready. Our excitement was matched only by Fazken's and Mr. Mervis (who stopped in to say hi and ask how we liked the finished product). In sum, our experience was effortless. We wholeheartedly recommend Fazken Krikorian and Mervis Diamond to anyone interested in diamond jewelry.

I went to Mervis with a girlfriend of mine to get some ideas for her engagement ring! Her guy gave us the OK to pick out some styles she liked and then he would go in afterwards and pick from amongst those. And they decided he would pick out the center stone on his own too. She... Read More got to choose the shape, but not the size or clarity. Anyway we went into their store one Saturday afternoon and I have to say we were treated very well. (This was after we were basically ignored at a few other stores for being 2 girls shopping without a guy). We looked a whole range of different styes but really liked the micro pave halo rings the most. We wrote down a few different style numbers for her man and then left. It was a great experience. I found the sales associate very nice and informative. I am not sure why others had bad experiences. Maybe some of their sales people are better than others. We worked with Emily and I can recommend her. I don't know her hours but she was there on Saturday. I am not sure where the boyfriend will ultimately buy the ring. We ended up giving him a long list of options from three different places. But of them all, I have to say we got the best service at Mervis. Hey that rhymes.

My husband (finace then) initially (and later I) worked closely with Rahul Vohra of Mervis Diamond Importers of Tysons/Vienna -- best decision ever! Rahul is a Senior Diamond Consultant, and very well educated in the business. He was extremely professional and really worked with... Read More us to get us exactly what we (ME) wanted! We started from scratch -- I got to pick the size and the 4Cs with the help of Rahul of course. We were deciding between the two: Tacori or Verragio. For me, I liked the very detailed and intricate designs that Verragio had, so we went with them. Rahul worked with Verragio to get us EXACTLY what we wanted, custom designed to the T. Our design was so custom, that Barry Verragio himself had to get involved and over-see the process of the ring! The final piece was just unbelievably gorgeous. And we selected a beautiful Verragio band to go along with it. I would recommend Mervis to all and furthermore, recommend you work with Rahul Vohra -- no pushy sales, finds you exactly what you are looking for, bends over backwards to help you get what you want, and makes you a life long customer! Thank you Mervis Vienna and especially Rahul Vohra!

We started looking at engagement rings prospectively about a year ago at a variety of stores. And while many stores did not take us seriously, Nina at Mervis did. She gave us a broad overview of our choices, and was easy and pleasant to deal with. At no point did we feel... Read More pressured to make a decision before we were ready. So when it came time to actually purchase the ring, it was an easy choice to go back to Mervis.

Everything about the transaction with Mervis was outstanding, and I highly recommend Nina.

I had an extremely tight budget and was headed for the local mall to find a ring. Luckily my recently engaged friend called up his new buddy, Evan Mervis, at the Rockville Mervis Diamond, and found that he could clear some time for us. Not only was Evan able to find an option... Read More twice as good as I'd expected for my price limit, he was able to deeply educate us on diamond evaluation and share advice on proposal techniques. Later, we went to the mall to check out the large chain stores and smaller ones, as well. Some of the price ranges were close, but since Evan had taken the time to teach us how to find inclusions and compare other facets, we came away largely disappointed from the selections available at the mall. Evan treats each customer as a friend, and establishes a sense of trust by giving honest and direct answers. If he can't manage something, he doesn't BS about it. He uses his experience combined with your details to find a solution that meets or exceeds people's needs. He made my friend happy, and he made me happy, but that is not as important as Evan's ultimate goal: how happy he made our fiances. I'll definitely be returning for the wedding bands.

This was our first time at Mervis. I must say it was a very pleasant experience. Deva Helmand assisted us and her recommendations were "on spot." She listened to our desires and provided advice. She also provided information on the artisans/designers of the various diamonds;... Read More she stayed with us the entire visit never once having to take another call or make her excuses to assist others. And the reason I'm stressing this point is because I can imagine compared to other customers Mervis is used to dealing with; our purchases were no more than %11K. They treat all customers the same no matter the perceived social strata. It felt like Deva was a close friend from the time we first met until the deal was done. Her expertise, her professionalism, her kindness, her sincerity---her entire demeanor was no less than stellar and the epitome of customer service! I will definitely recommend Mervis and Deva and I would go back in heartbeat! Look for Deva to become one of the corporate leaders in the future.

They cater to a different customer, which is why I think they've gotten mixed reviews, but don't let that discourage you from doing business with them.
