Chris, management and friends of Vincents Jewelers
From the beginning, it was evident that Vincent’s Jewelers would be the location where I would purchase my engagement ring. A warm, friendly, and very intelligent jewelry agent by the name of Chris would be that vehicle. Since 2004, who knew that you would be responsible for many other purchases: diamond earrings, wedding bands, a Rolex watch, diamond pendant and necklace. And even 2 weeks ago, a diamond ring my then –pregnant wife. * a boy, Kingston David Lovelady 8lbs and 8oz.
You have made every wedding anniversary, new child, Christmas, and birthday occasions very special. Thank you Chris for being responsible for these purchases. You are truly apart of the Lovelady family. I know other jewelers talk about “having a friend in the diamond business.” But who needs friends, when you have family! Continue to brightly shine as you did in beginning- because you’ll have my (our) business forever!

I have been paying and selling with Vincent's for almost 20 years. I got my engagement ring and wedding rings from you (one of a kind both) they gave helped me design and created specially designed pieces for me. This is the only place I have and will purchase jewelry. Christina always remembers me, my cats and anything major going on in my life. You have a great employee in her.
I just wanted everyone to know how thrilled my husband and I have been with the service provided by Christina Rutz there at Vincent’s. She has hone above and beyond with each purchase we have made, and she always provides such impeccable service. She makes a point to remember things about her clients which always makes us feel so welcome. She and your friendly staff keep us coming back. Thank you to all!
