Happy clients say…

I asked Versailles Jewelers to take my old engagement ring and turn it into something new and exciting that I could wear for my daughters wedding. The result was amazing. They had taken the diamond and put in into a stunning setting with little aquamarine stones (my birthstone) completely surrounding it. The size and shape were perfect and it looked so amazing on my finger!
