“I would first like to generously thank Aret for making my experience of purchasing what has been the most important purchase of my life thus far! My wife had a design in mind for her engagement ring, and we needed someone to design it for us. I went to four other jewelry stores and I was horribly unsatisfied with the service price and quality of the work. I came across Livia diamonds online and was intrigued by the website. I decided to make an appointment.Aret was able to transcribe my wife’s design and with his vision created something unbelievably beautiful. It is unfortunate that I am only able to provide Livia diamonds with a 5-star rating because it deserves a 10! Thank you again so much Aret!”
“Simply amazing experience and work! Aret is hands down the BEST custom jeweler in Ontario and maybe even the Eastern Seaboard! He designed a jaw dropping engagement ring for me and words are not enough to describe the joy I feel. Thank you thank you!”
“It is with great pleasure that I am writing this letter of appreciation to Aret Oymakas. Having had the privilege of dealing with Aret for the past 6 years, I feel highly qualified to express my opinion.When it comes to customer service, I believe there’s nobody who is more committed to keeping his customers totally satisfied than Aret. He is friendly, gracious and will absolutely provide you the best value for your budget. And as a result of his commitment to providing the best service and best product at the best price, his clients are loyal and continue patronizing him. I would not consider buying my jewellery anywhere else or make a major jewellery purchase without his advice. Absolutely the best in the business and I would recommend him to everyone!! Keep doing what you do.”
“OUTSTANDING SERVICE – GORGEOUS RING – WILL DEFINITELY REFER AND COME BACK.
Buying an engagement ring can be a stressful time however, Aret made the experience as great as possible. His timely email responses, texts and other phone communication was second to none and his willingness to meet his customers wants and needs was truly a great experience.The quality of his diamonds, craftsmanship and detail is as good and beyond elite store quality. Also, all corresponding and legal documentations and certificates were all up to date, accurate and professionally delivered.Thanks so much for everything.”
“When I was trying to find and engagement ring for my girlfriend I felt very overwhelmed, until I was introduced to Aret. He made the process simple, enjoyable and affordable. My girlfriend absolutely loved her ring and since my experience with Aret I have referred a few friends and family members and they felt the same way about their experience with Aret.
“This was my first time purchasing a diamond from anywhere and since it was for engagement purposes, I was worried about my lack of knowledge on the subject. I was lucky to find Aret at Livia diamonds. He took the time to educate me on the entire process, he took all my questions and upon shopping around I found that he was the best in town.Aret has excellent customer service skills, he is a master craftsman and he got me a great price. The ring was made exactly how I wanted it to be, in fact it exceeded my expectations. Great service and great quality; I highly recommend him for anyone who is looking to make that big decision.”
“I found Livia Diamonds by accident while doing my research on engagement rings, and turns out to be the best “finding” that ever happen. Don’t get me wrong, I have visited several jewelers around Toronto and certainly there are some good ones out there that makes you feel it’s the right choice, especially if you just recently checking big brands, like Tiffany &Co. or Maison Birks.
But Livia Diamonds, certainly, brings you to the next level of experience. You will be surprise with how accommodating and patience he is in listening to your request and blurriness (sometimes men do confuse with what the ladies like). Aret even tells you a lot of tips and information that most salesman would not do to help fit in your design with your budget. I’m quite picky with designs, but he was always attentive to the details I asked for and even deliver beyond my expectations in timely fashion. Most importantly, my fiance love the ring so much she hasn’t stop looking at it for days ?
Honestly, 23 reviews do not justify his quality. I brought my sister with me when I met Aret, and she decided to order her wedding rings from Livia as well. She wished she could’ve found Livia Diamonds last year.
I highly recommend him for sure. you won’t regret it!”
“My fiance has been buying from Aret since he was a teenager. He helped me have my dream ring. I now have my fancy yellow princess cut diamond ring that I’ve always wanted and my Prince Charming. The service, selection and quality of diamonds can’t be beat. Aret is so sweet and knowledgeable and will go to whatever lengths to help you find or custom make exactly what your heart desires.”
“Aret has been simply amazing. He was patient, understanding and passionate about delivering an end product that his customer will fall in love with. My Fiance is absolutely ecstatic with the ring and how it turned out. Aret worked with me to make me exactly what I need within the budget I had to work with – a task many other vendors before him failed to do. Highly recommend!”
“In this day and age it is often difficult to find honest companies especially within the jewellery industry. Aret has exceeded our expectations of providing honest and great service and we will definitely be doing business with him in the future. We definitely recommend Aret to anyone because of their professionalism, customer service, and prices.Dealing with Aret has been such a positive and rewarding experience. He was professional and courteous to our requests and worked with us to produce an exquisite ring that was within our budget. He was helpful and honest and explained everything thoroughly. Aret made sure we were completely satisfied with our ring choice.”
“From concept to design (and redesign!) all the way to the finished product, we never felt pressured or patronized. He takes such care and treats his work so passionately that you can’t help but feel that this is a team project. And of course, most importantly, she loved the ring.”
“I stumbled across Livia Diamonds by accident and it was the greatest thing that could have happened to me in my search for a perfect engagement ring. Aret’s commitment to being a pressure free and honest salesman is extremely rare in this business and puts you at ease the minute you meet with him. He treats you like a friend rather than a customer and his patience comes from his understanding of how big of a decision you are making. My main concern going in was how much a custom engagement ring was going to cost.Aret assured me that my budget was more than reasonable and said he could make something beautiful. He walked me through the design process and gave his experience based opinion on what would look best. He took all of my ideas and requests and made the most unbelievable engagement ring I have ever seen. My fiancè was left absolutely speechless by it. I feel a little silly for ever considering a ring from a “big box” jewellery store and will never set foot in one ever again. If I could give Livia Diamonds a 10 star, I would. Best experience I have ever had purchasing something. Livia Diamonds is a real class act. Don’t waste your time anywhere else.”
“My fiancé and I worked with Aret to design a custom ring. He was extremely collaborative every step of the way, making sure we felt comfortable with the process and his work. Aret promised to never make it feel like we were at a car lot buying a car and that he would treat us how he would want to be treated if the tables were turned. Without a shadow of a doubt I can say that we definitely felt Aret treated us like we were family.Through every step of the process Aret made us feel comfortable with our decisions and provided his expertise along the way. I would highly recommend Aret to anyone and we definitely won’t hesitate to use him again in the future for jewellery purchases. I promise you won’t be disappointed!”
“Aret did an awesome job and was very helpful in the design of the ring. I will definitely go back and advise all friends to go to him as well!! Thanks again for all your help and an amazing ring Aret! ”
“Aret was incredible to deal with. The guy knows his stuff, but even more impressive was how much he cares. Honestly, I think it was the best experience I’ve had with a business. The amount of care he puts in the whole process is just stellar. My engagement ring was done in the time he promised and communicated with me throughout. Save your time and just go to Livia Diamonds and he’ll take care of you. My fiance and I got a new friend out of it.”
“I am beyond happy at the engagement ring that my fiancé and I purchased from Aret. With Aret’s patience and expertise, we ended up with a gorgeous ring that exceeded our expectations but not our budget. We were amazed at the quality of the diamonds and craftsmanship that we ended up with compared to the big box jewellery stores – where our hard earned money got us little for a big price tag. Never again will we waste our money elsewhere. My fiancé has since purchased for me a gold and diamond necklace from Aret which is stunning, unique and awards me with many compliments.We are now headed back to Aret to select our wedding bands and I can hardly wait. Doing business with Aret is more like spending time with a close friend – if not a family member – who has your best interest at heart, and who is so kind and gracious in offering his knowledge and best price.He is really respectful of what it is that you want to spend and there is zero pressure in trying to get you to spend more. There is just no awkwardness with Aret – he makes you feel at ease. I can not say enough great things about this man. He is trustworthy, extremely pleasant and very patient. He takes the time to understand what it is that you are looking for and offers gentle guidance when you are unsure or may feel overwhelmed with choices. He takes the time to educate his clients and does not rush you at all.
I am proud to say that we have found a wonderful Jeweler in Aret, who I would confidently refer to my family members and friends, and to whom I look forward to doing continued business with for many more years to come.
With much gratitude for your exceptional service and for treating us with such care.
Linda and Bruce”
“I recently visited Toronto, had a pleasure of visiting Livia Diamonds and meeting the owner, Aret. He showed me his custom engagement rings, even the one he was just finishing for a client. He took a full hour to help me decide about the design, and really put effort into getting to know me and my partner. He helped us put what we love about each other into the design of our ring. Not to mention, he had a TV system to entertain my sister’s kids who came with me!What he does is true art! I will recommend him to everyone I know, and surely come back when it’s time for an anniversary ring!”
This is the place to be when you are shopping for engagement rings, wedding bands, etc.. Don’t look anywhere else. Aret is so helpful and accommodating too. Also, he does not disappoint. Highly recommended!
“I want to just thank Aret again for helping me find the perfect engagement ring. His honesty and sincerity is what made me want to purchase the ring from him. I can assure anyone who is in the market for a ring, Aret is the person who you can trust. The quality of the ring is top notch and he works with your budget. Will be back again shortly for the wedding rings!”
“I got my engagement ring on time and it was perfect. Beautiful! Plus I loved how they give back to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. Class act.”
If you’re looking for someone to design and craft a wonderful engagement ring for you, stop your search and visit Aret at Livia Diamonds. Not only is he accommodating throughout the whole process, he is also honest and trustworthy with his recommendations.
Before finding out about Aret I was certainly nervous and a bit overwhelmed with the whole notion of carving out the RIGHT ring — let’s face it, it can be stressful making one of the most important purchases of your life.
After my first meeting with Aret, I knew I was in good hands. No pressure, good advice, transparent throughout and kept me up to date on the whole process via email and text messages. And the final product? Breathtaking, stunning and whatever other superlatives you can think of. Thank you, Aret for your hard work and outstanding customer service!
I had a particularly unique situation where I wanted to trade an existing piece of jewellery for an engagement ring, and was looking for an honest jeweller who did high quality work, who was willing to give me fair value for the piece I had in exchange for something new.
In order to ensure I didn’t get ripped off, I read a lot of reviews and spoke with a number of different jewellers and Aret (at Livia Diamonds) was by far the nicest and most sincere of the bunch. We easily worked through the details together and he used his knowledge and creativity to design an absolutely beautiful ring that my fiancé loves. It was a true pleasure working with him and I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s in the market for a ring.
He’s honest, creative, highly knowledgeable, and does amazing work; a rare combination in this industry.
My experience at Livia has been nothing short of amazing! Aret is very honest, helpful, and understanding. He worked with my fiance and I to design and construct the perfect engagement ring. We absolutely love the final product and look forward to working with him again in the near future. If you want a stress-free experience, I absolutely recommend making an appointment to see Aret, and be prepared to be amazed! Thank you Aret once again for everything!
