Israel and his staff were a pleasure to work with. They were very helpful in making a great experience for my son and fiancee. They went above and beyond to make us happy with our purchase. I highly recommend I. D. Jewelry!

Amazing experience. Yekutiel is extremely helpful and professional. My experience was stellar from start to finish. After visiting with other jewelers, it is obvious that Yekutiel and ID Jewelry offer the best selection, service and experience. And their pricing is extremely fair and competitive. I highly recommend them for any and all jewelry needs, including engagement rings.

I recently went to I.D. Jewelry in the NYC diamond district to help my brother pick out the perfect engagement ring for his girlfriend. (I was going to be in NYC for other reasons and added a stop in the district to my itinerary). After getting educated on diamonds my brother pre-screened loose diamonds on their site to finally end up with about 5 candidates for the center stone, and the two sides stones were narrowed down to about 8. My brother emailed I.D. Jewelry and Yekutiel replied back that the stones would be ready for inspection upon my arrival. I visited their store on 47th Street (the diamond district). I was well received by Yekutiel and his staff. Prior to my arrival, Yekutiel screened the diamonds himself to setup an order for looking at them. We started with the center stone, the first stone we looked at (which was one of my brother's top three) under the loupe looked great. According to the lab report it was a SI1 clarity stone, and the only thing seen under the loupe (and on the lab report) was a feather in the crown facets. (Had it put under a prong). Everything else was totally clean, table perfect, no carbon, no clouds, nothing. I looked at the stone through the pavilion, also nothing. The stone was graded with an F color, and Yekutiel put it on white paper and I couldn't see any hint of yellow, as expected. Yekutiel weighed the stone to verify carat weight. Last thing we looked at was the cut quality. By the dimensions on the lab report, I already knew it was it was an ideal cut. At my request, Yekutiel brought out an Idealscope and Hearts and Arrows viewer to look at the stone, very impressive. Finally we looked at the stone under normal lighting conditions, it really sparkled with fire, brilliance, and scintillation. At this point, I didn't bother looking at the four other center stones; we scored a home-run, first time at the plate. I called my brother relayed the information, gave my recommendation and he told me to choose it.
The process for the two smaller diamond went the same way. (Both are F color, SI-1, identical carat weight, excellent cuts). After talking to my brother, he now had selected three fantastic diamonds. My brother wanted an 18k white gold 3-stone trellis setting and we found the perfect one. Yekutiel wrote everything up, gave my brother a competitive price and my brother bought the stones and the setting. I took the stones and a copy of the lab reports to verify them with an appraiser . The appraiser verified that everything matched the reports and was really impressed with the quality of the stones. I came back with the stones, Yekutiel checked the stones one last time and had one of the other staff members take me to the workshop where the diamonds were finally set, and the ring polished one more time. Afterward, Yekutiel checked the finished ring one last time, sizing and all, steam cleaned it, and put it into a beautiful presentation box. The last bit of paperwork was completed and acting as an agent for my brother, I left I.D. Jewelry extremely satisfied. As you can probably tell, I got into the nitty gritty and came out very satisfied, you do not need to this, I'm an engineer, go figure. One last visit to the appraiser to fully appraise the completed ring and then it was all done.
Yekutiel Davidov is a consummate professional, and I was glad to have met and worked with him, his wife Tami, his father Israel, his cousin Robert and all the other staff at I.D. Jewelry. They were very quick to answer our phone calls, respond to email inquiries, and a total pleasure to work with. I highly recommend I.D. Jewelry and look forward to doing business with them in the future... for myself!

Shulamit and Yukatiel are so easy to work with! I enjoyed meeting them in their store and loved my stacking ring so much that I ordered two more when I get back home. All of my questions were answered immediately, and my rings were delivered exactly on time and are absolutely gorgeous. I would highly recommend I.D Jewelry to anyone looking for beautiful, sparkling diamonds!

In an industry where its often unclear who you can trust and what the true cost / value of what you're buying is, ID Jewelry provides much welcome transparency. Excellent service and helpful salespeople.
Review by TruNorth Muhly4 years ago
I went with my daughter to buy diamond jewellery and I found the service very professional and comfortable. Plenty of time to choose the jewellery and helpful advice from Jade - no pressure selling! My ring was ready for collection the very next day as was my daughter's necklace. Lovely pieces and very good value for money. I would definitely recommend ID Jewellery.
Review by Kunying4 years ago
I dealt with many jewelers trying to find the perfect engagement ring for my girlfriend. So many were just salesmen, who barely listened to my needs, and often went over my budget. I came to ID Jewelry looking for a good quality clean princess cut diamond in a pave setting, under $7500 for the stone. They found me a great diamond, and with the setting came in under my budget for just the diamond alone! I even continued looking through settings and found one that I loved, which turned out to be less expensive than the original one I picked. They are not trying to upsell for commission, they just want to help you get what you are looking for. They are very honest and upfront and will show you the price they pay for the diamond, so you know you are not getting ripped off. I visited them at their old location on ground level of the diamond district, and also in their new office on the 3rd floor. The new office is small, but it is much quieter and nice. My now fiance loves her ring and we could not be happier! Thank you!

I was recommended by a friend.
Yekutiel was very helpful throughout the whole process of buying an engagement ring. I learned a few things along the way which was bonus.
Customer service is second to none, with very quick replies to email.
Review by Echraf4 years ago
Is the second jewel that I buy at this company. The first jewel was a pair of pearl and diamond earrings and now I just bought a beautiful emerald and diamond ring. Their products have great quality and their customer service is just the best. The salesperson is very thoughtful and have a great knowledge of the products. I think Julia is the name of the person that served me. I definitely recommend this store to anyone that is interested to buy quality products at a good price.

Treated us like family, very nice and Tammy was patient and funny.
Trust them completely and will be dealing with them again in the near future! Shulamit and Yuketil were a pleasure to work with! Work was done quickly and they really know their business! Great prices and they have a wide selection in store or can do any custom piece you want.
Review by Takkekort Alabri5 years ago
I was put in touch with Yekutiel through a friend of mine, and former customer of ID Jewelry's. I had done some research on what I wanted prior to speaking with Yekutiel for the first time, and just based on a 5 minute conversation, he sent me one idea for a setting, which was PERFECT, and everything was smooth sailing from there. Yekutiel was patient and very helpful with a very discerning customer who was determined to get exactly what he wanted, for exactly the right price. I would have all the confidence in the world referring Yekutiel to future customers and returning to him with future business. Thanks ID Jewelry!

I have purchased numerous diamonds from the team at I.D. Jewelry and had an amazing experience each time. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If they don't have what you are looking for, they will find it. I made 2 trips from Houston to NY to buy jewelry here and this most recent time wanted a piece of jewelry but didn't want to fly to NY. I was able to do everything via phone and e-mail. It was a seamless process and I'm beyond pleased with my purchase! The rings I bought are even more beautiful than what I pictured and imagined.
I will NEVER buy jewelry anywhere else, as I trust this store and staff implicitly. On top of great service and quality products, the prices can't be beat. I highly recommend this store to everyone who is in the market for jewelry!

ID Jewelry was amazing to work with! Not only did they help me find what I was looking for, but they got me something better!
Shuli and Yekutiel could not have been nicer, and were a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process.
Would highly recommend ID over anyone else, as from the start, they were the most transparent, trustworthy and good to deal with!

Me and my fiancé bought my wedding band here at I.D Jewelry and agreed that we found the perfect ring that fits me. JADE was very nice to us and was able to establish a good rapport with us instantly. She even steamed my engagement ring the day we went there and the time we went back to pick up the ring and gave us freebies which we really appreciated.
Highly recommended. Such a warm and cosy environment with beautiful jewelry and helpful staff.

If you are looking for the finest of fine jewelry, be it new, repairs, or customized, I.D. Jewelry is the only one I can trust. The entire staff bends over backwards to accommodate you.
. The excellent knowledge, professionalism, courtesy, and above all trust, cannot be found anywhere else in this industry.

What can I say - flawless, personal, caring, informative, service and overall experience you expect from a jeweler. From my experience with Cartier and Harry Winston, ID Jewelry out performs these brands in every way. I highly recommend them to anyone who values their hard earned money and demands the best
Review by Natsku5 years ago
My sister has worked for a company in Manhattan for several years where she had a lot of exposure to and experience working with diamonds. In other words, she "knows" diamonds. Therefore, when she recommended Yekutiel of I.D. Jewelry, I did not hesitate to have him be my only jeweler for one of the most important days of my life (or anyone's for that matter) - the day they get engaged!
Like most people, I have very basic knowledge of diamonds and therefore did my own research. I then proceeded to ask Yekutiel various wide-ranging questions about color and clarity, the effect of fluorescence on pricing, diamond measurements, characteristics of fire versus brilliance, ideal girdle thickness, etc. He took time to take my calls and responded promptly to my questions.
The diamond he ultimately chose for me was ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. Due to scheduling constraints, I did not travel to New York to see the diamond in person. Initially, I had reservations about making a substantial purchase based on pictures alone. But since my sister completely trusted Yekutiel, so did I. By the way, she has recommended several family and friends to purchase their engagement rings and other jewelry pieces from I.D. Jewelry.
Regarding my diamond purchase, the pictures and videos I was sent did not do the diamond justice. I was already blown away by the pictures, so you can imagine my reaction when I saw the ring in person. When I received the ring in a few short days, I was stunned. It sparkled like no other. It seemed like it was on fire and like it was dancing right in front of my eyes. I looked at it under different lighting conditions (inside, outside in a shaded area, outside under direct sunlight) and was very pleased with the results. I cannot wait for the day I get engaged! My future fiancé will be very very happy. Do not hesitate to contact Yekutiel and I.D. Jewelry and have them assist you with one of your most important symbolic life purchases. You will not get the same level of service and product expertise from say, Blue Nile. I did use their app to get an idea of market pricing and also get basic education about diamonds. However, overall I am extremely happy with my decision to get our diamond from I.D. Jewelry!
P.S. I usually shop around first and ask for quotes from multiple vendors before making a significant purchase. Hence, a small part of me wondered if I should have called around first. Obviously, my decision to go straight to I.D. Jewelry paid off. It was actually only AFTER I purchased the ring that I went on Yelp to check out the company's rating. Lo and behold - 35 five star reviews! I was not surprised.
Thank you Yekutiel and I.D. Jewelry! I know we will love this ring for many years to come!!!

We had a great experience at ID JEWELRY. They were able to custom make a piece of jewelry for our mother in a very short amount of time at an unbeatable price.
We are recommending all our friends and family to this place. They will be satisfied!!

Review by Mindrila Derrow5 years ago
Went to ID Jewelry after having trouble getting comfortable with the prices and service available locally. Was somewhat apprehensive going in because this was a big, cross-country transaction. I couldn't be more happy I stuck with it! ID Jewelry sold me a beautiful ring at a very good price, and they were very responsive to countless questions I asked via email and phone. I recommend them to anybody!

I came to ID jewelry after foolishly going to another jewelery store in the diamond district that I saw on yelp that was closed without any notification. I left work to come jewelry shopping so I didnt want to go back without accomplishing anything so I went on yelp and decided to give ID a shot. I received a piece of jewelery from a large chain store that will rename nameless, after further inspection of the jewelry I realized that it was not going to work. I went to ID jewelry and basically told them I wanted the same style but bigger and better. I worked with Yukitiel, he asked me my budget, I was scared to say it because I thought in such a nice jewelry store I would not get anythign with that price. He showed me a bunch of settings and everytime I asked about price he told me not to worry about it. When looking at stones he didn't try to pressure me to get bigger more expensive stones, I actually had to nudge him to give me something bigger LOL, but I understand because he was thinking solely about quality. I ended up spending 1/3 less than what was paid for the original piece of jewelry, except ID had a better cut, clarity and color. Everyone here is so nice and do not make you feel pressured. My jewelry was ready before the expected time and he even gave it to me with the appraisal and some free jewelry cleaner. I will be back for some complimenting pieces, Yukitiel is hilarious and a genuinely honest person, I met his wife and I believe his dad who were both very nice. Over all, a great place to buy jewelry!
Review by Lilgrobar5 years ago
I would recommend ID Jewelry to anyone who wants a trusted partner for such important decisions. Yekutiel made me feel very comfortable during my recent visit and gave me honest, quality guidance about my choices. The final product was amazing(just as he said it would be) and I am extremely happy and gratified for their service.
Review by Dustie5 years ago
I have worked with Yekutiel at ID Jewelry for a number of years. I was referred to him from a long line of close friends who have also trusted Yekutiel's services. In a jewelry district filled with jewelers looking to make a sale, Yekutiel stands out as honest, straightforward, patient, and reliable. Like a dentist, once you find a jeweler that you can really trust, you should stick with him or her! This is particularly true for me as I am an informed and rather difficult consumer who researches all my significant purchases and can be pretty tough with sales people.
Meeting Yekutiel and discussing my objectives, it was clear that he and his father were steeped in knowledge and experience with fine diamonds. Yekutiel first helped me find the perfect stone for an engagement ring. The circumstances there were particularly challenging, because I was pressed for time before a planned vacation. Yekutiel, however, came through in the clutch, and even was able to reset the stone when I had second thoughts about the setting. With that experience, it was clear that the customer always came first. I next looked to Yekutiel to help find stones for a "push" present. We found a perfect pair and built some beautiful earrings for my wife.
My wife has been thrilled with all her jewelry. I am also confident that both of my purchases from ID Jewelry were at fair and competitive prices, and the service I received was second to none. I recommend Yekutiel highly and will continue to refer him to others.
