“What an nightmare - when we wanted to complain about...”

Written on: 05/12/2014 by gdMacLeod1954 (1 review written)

What an nightmare - when we wanted to complain about our experience and found out the person we had to complain to was the owner of Samara James who we were actually complaining about we couldn't believe it - We had an excellent experience buying engagement rings, however for wedding rings we met Ed Searancke who was very sarcastic to us and the most unprofessional person we had met there as we had been back a few times. An example of some of the things he said was when i asked is this the… Read Full Review

Don't say it should be closed down when you clearly haven't given a reason.
I'm looking to buy from these people and you have not given any indication of problems encountered.
Idiot...

“Charged for manufacturing problem”

Written on: 21/03/2014 by vjBarrett246 (1 review written)

After my husband ordered my ring and it needed to be resized. When it came back the diamond was loose. Staff blamed me for this - I had not actually worn it. They waived the fee to have it fixed when we argued our case. The diamond was fine for a while, then came loose again 5 months later, on the day we left for honeymoon. This time we had no choice but to pay for it to be tightened again. The diamond has not come loose since that second incident which suggests that it was not correctly… Read Full Review

Ring arrived in time and better than expected. The heart and arrows cut truly sparkles and fires superbly, was better than a excellent cut gia certified high street diamond.

Very excited to receive my ring later this week. Samara James have taken their time in order to create the ring exactly the way I wanted it.

“Sceptical at first”

Written on: 11/10/2013 by EatonaLot (1 review written)

I was extremely sceptical about purchasing from a jeweller that I had never heard of; especially seeing as I was about to part with so much money. I am now thrilled that I took the chance and left my wedding ring in their hands. Samara James have taken my mother's engagement ring and eternity ring, made of yellow gold, and used them to make two wedding bands. Very pleased with the results - the rings are stunning. … Read Full Review

“Very short stay”

Written on: 24/09/2013 by deszlg765 (1 review written)

When I arrived I was already tired of shopping for the 'perfect' ring. I didn't really feel like looking round much and there was a lot to choose from too which in this case didn't help any. BUT the staff are so efficient at their jobs I barely had to look at all, all I did was describe the type of ring I was after, what it should include and BINGO they'd found one for me within no time. Such an easy going place; nothing like the other stores that try to force you into buying something. Enjoyed… Read Full Review

“Perfect!!”

Written on: 14/08/2013 by ZeptaSeptarr (1 review written)

I came to Samara James on behalf of my fiancée as we are planning to marry in spring - I couldn't have asked for a better service. Samara James allow you to take the ring home with you to test its compatibility with your other half, they will then give you a 100% refund if the ring hasn't been heavily worn! … Read Full Review

“Excellent, friendly - couldn't be happier!”

Written on: 02/08/2013 by SheiDeee (3 reviews written)

I have spent a great deal of time trying to determine the type of ring that I'd like for my 30th, but none of the shops sold anything remotely similar. It was at Samara James that I found the ring I wanted - but this was only due to number of friendly staff that work at Samara James. The staff were extremely knowledgeable where their products were concerned and they took the time listen to my poor explanation of the ring I desired. I will definitely be coming here again and would suggest that… Read Full Review

“Samara James Rocks!”

Written on: 16/07/2013 by JamieB83 (3 reviews written)

The weirdest story led me to Samara James - I was playing in a Thin Lizzy tribute band and our last minute replacement guitarist had gotten married a few days early. His new wife was in the front row and I couldn't stop looking at her HUGE diamond ring during the performance - I initially thought it was a novelty piece, nobody would wear a diamond that big. Anyway drinks flowed and eventually we got chatting and I found out that she'd had it personally made for her by Samara James - I wasn't… Read Full Review

“Sublime team.”

Written on: 02/07/2013 by lelandsmitty (1 review written)

From Stage 1 to Stage 99, Samara James were absolutely sublime to work with. A phonecall started the process after reading some good reviews online and before I knew it, my partner and I were finalising our ring designs and the little elves that work behind the scenes at SJ had been whipped into action! It was a dream journey from beginning to end and I can't recommend SJ enough, truly… Read Full Review

“We had our third and final consultation with Samara...”

Written on: 14/06/2013 by double-strength (2 reviews written)

We had our third and final consultation with Samara James last weekend and this morning we took delivery of the rings. The entire process has been flawless and incredibly easy, each of our meetings lasted as long or as short as we wanted, we never ushered towards more expensive options and never pushed out of the door when other customers came in. Will recommend the team whenever I get the chance. … Read Full Review

“True, expert gentlemen.”

Written on: 07/06/2013 by ChelseaFC59 (1 review written)

Staffed by true gents, Samara James is by far and away the best retail experience I've had in my life. I had assumed it was going to be the most difficult and most painful, but I was pleasantly surprised! Everybody knows their stuff and my fiancé and I were dazzled by their diamond trivia. Superb… Read Full Review

“Hard to trust, but SJ delivers!!”

Written on: 14/05/2013 by LsaLisa (2 reviews written)

I was very wary of trusting the design of my engagement ring to Samara James, I was worried that something would get lost in translation. Ed listened to everything I had to say and totally understood me, first time, off the bat. He made a couple of suggestions, was polite when I rebuffed them and continued to try and make my ring the best that I could afford within my budget. Very pleased with the end result… Read Full Review

Incredibly happy with the customer service, the jewellery we purchased and the price of the entire ensemble. My partner and I bought our engagement and wedding rings from Samara James, the latter of which were made bespoke to our requirements and we've never been more impressed by a purchase. Thoroughly fantastic… Read Full Review

“Fussy me = no match!”

Written on: 12/04/2013 by JG76b (1 review written)

I had more than a few fussy requests that I knew would make or break this ring. With them in mind, I was expecting to either receive the ring late or find that my instructions had been too complex for the team to follow. Unfortunately both of these came true, but in a fantastic and fortunate way. The delivery was a whopping three minutes late and the jewellers had been forced to use a larger diamond than initially expected to accomodate the design, at no extra charge. Bingo! … Read Full Review

“Unfaultable customer service.”

Written on: 26/03/2013 by ArtlyLately (2 reviews written)

The best customer service I have ever had the pleasure to experience, better even than the car showroom who worship you for your hard earned cash. Samara James and the team (particularly Rosie) helped me find the perfect wedding ring, despite them having never seen one like it. After a number of insightful sessions with Rosie, she asked for a few days to try and source what we were looking for and returned with EXACTLY what we wanted; even though I was sure at this point that it didn't exist… Read Full Review

“Recommend”

Written on: 07/03/2013

Send diamond and silver ring back as it had arrived with a few scratches on. Fortunately my (now) wife didn't notice when I proposed and assumed that she'd done it some time after, but I thought I'd try my luck by requesting a polish and touch-up on the ring. Ed insisted that it would be replaced instead, even better! These guys know their stuff and they really care. Ring arrived 2nd Jan, sent back on 6th Jan and the new ring arrived on the 11th Jan. Perfect!… Read Full Review
