“Simon is an excellent jeweler. Everything he creates is original and beautiful. His creativity and ideas are amazing! He created my wedding ring and I love it! I would highly recommend him and I will use his services again in the future.” Comment by Katherine Wichmann Zacharias – Financial Rep & Independent Insurance Professional
“I’ve watched Simon / Rock-N-Gold Creations grow over the last 20 years from a one man business with a dream of creating custom pieces of art to his retail location he is in now. Simon has made 3 master pieces for me over the years that are worthy of being handed down from generation to generation. If you’re looking for something that’s not just another ho-hum cookie cutter ring that looks like it came from Costco or Wal-Mart. You own it to the girl of your dreams to make your way out to see him!” Comment by Yasir M. Berkeley, CA 5 star review
“I came in later last year for a diamond engagement ring for my soon-to-be fiance. Simon was incredible. He sat with me and helped me understand everything (and possibly more) that I needed to know about engagement rings. We went through all aspects of the design and he designed a beautiful ring. When I picked it up, I was blown away. It was even more gorgeous than I thought it would be. I popped the question that same day and my fiance LOVES her ring! We could not be happier with Simon and the work he put into the ring. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon and the crew to anyone looking for some quality work done and for a very reasonable rate. Thanks Simon!!!” Comment by Mike G. San Diego, CA 5 star review
“Simon is the best is all I can say. He has sat with me for hours designing and brainstorming custom pieces for me. All four pieces so far have been fabulous and I plan on buying more custom items. I also sold my scrap gold and was surprised the amount I received from RocknGold. Please look no further when are looking for beautiful custom pieces, estate items or just want to sell your gold, Simon is honest and fair.” Comment by Deborah G. San Diego, CA 5 star review
“Simon and Victoria at Rock N Gold have done it again and again, I used to spend hours looking on the net and trying to come up with a design that I like but after dealing with Simon for 7 years now I just tell him make me something I need to spend X amount… and sure enough it is 100% what I expect, He knows my test now and with his years of designing jewelry he always gets it right. Cheers and they will always be my go place when I need a unique design.” Comment by Greg G. Hazleton, PA 5 star review
“I have returned to Simon at Rock N Gold Creations many times, to purchase jewelry; have my pieces cleaned, repaired, or appraised; and to sell unwanted items. The reason I go back again and again is that I know I can trust him and his staff to do the best work and give me the best deal. They’re helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable, and the prices I got for the gold items I sold were the best available at the time (I checked around). Everything is always done on time. I would go back to Simon for any of my jewelry needs and recommend him to anyone.” Comment by Foodie S. San Diego, CA 5 star review
“I came to Rock-n-Gold after one of the stones came out of my favorite ring. I was very upset and thought I was just going to sell it for the value of the gold. Simon was so nice and helpful. He suggested I repair the ring since it had a lot of sentimental value. I am so glad I did. Not only was he able to replace the stone that had fallen out, but he added a couple new stones and redesigned the setting. Simon truly is an artist. You can really see the attention to detail put into my ring. I am so happy I went to Rock-n-Gold. My ring looks even better than when I first purchased it. I will definitely come back here for any of my gold or jewelry needs.” Comment by Jenny P. San Diego, CA 5 star review
“I was very happy with my experience at Rock N Gold. I came in with several gold pieces of varying quality looking for cash. The employee looked at each piece carefully and correctly identified all the carats and the glass rubies no problem. He cleaned and examined all my diamonds and was able to save the larger and more quality diamonds from the melting pot. I never felt “scammed” or hustled at all. I walked out with a check and some nice clean stones and bought myself a new Kate Spade purse. Waaaay better than the ring from my EX!!” Comment by Lindsay D. San Diego, CA 5 star review

“The beauty of these custom pieces is just unreal. Their designs are gorgeous and unique, their designer is an absolute expert in all the metals, stones, settings, and styles you could imagine, and they collaborate with you to create jewelry that is truly “you”. Amazing jeweler.” Comment by Shiloh S.
“My wedding band and engagement ring was designed by Simon and I cannot even tell you how much detail he put into it not only from the main center stone but down to details around the entire band. I was married 5 years ago but my ring still sparkles and there is hardly a time that I don’t have someone ask me to see my ring up closer. It is beyond beautiful and it is truly SO UNIQUE! The quality by Simon and Victoria is also first class…I antcipate my wedding set becoming an heirloom that can be passed down to my girls and grandchildren…” comment by Hudnet05
“We had our engagement ring and wedding bands custom made by Rock N Gold and we love them! Simon worked with us to create exactly what we wanted-he’s the best!” Comment by Lexy H
“Rock-n-Gold was referred to me by a friend whose ring I admired. He stated they worked with him to fashion the original design. I stopped by with a ring of mine which had lost its luster, my other jeweler had given up. Rock-n-Gold volunteered to try their tricks to shine it up and, lo and behold, it’s gorgeous. Thanks, F Shepherd, Clairemont area of San Diego.” Comment by FS

“Aproximately 1989 I meet Simon when I worked at the NAS Miramar Exchange. Simon use to size jewelry for them. He was extemely honest, detailed, professional even back then. Simon since then has placed a one carat stone into a setting for me, he designed for me a ring for my son that to this day we both get compliments on the pieces. Simon has shown over and over his talent, detail, professional, honesty. What else can I say they have a gift.” Comment by Susan M.
“I have bought several very nice items from rock & gold for my wife over the past ten years or so. She has always been excited with all their jewlery, but I think the best was the ring that Simon designed for her for our twentyfifth wedding anniversery. Rock & Gold is always a pleasure to visit.” Comment by Gary B
“I first interacted with RGC for a charitable event fundraiser. They purchased old gold jewelry and generously donated a percentage of sales to my charity. I was very appreciative. Their jewelry is gorgeous and one-of-a-kind. Simon is very pleasant to work with and really strives to make every client’s experience fabulous! I will go to RGC for all my jewelry in the future.” Comment by Tina G.
“The service is the best’ almost as if we’ve been freinds for a long time . The quality is above the rest and trust comes when there is quality. I live in the Sacramento area and take all my stuff to Rock-n-Gold because I love his work and trust that my stones will come back.The prices are unbeatable.” Comment by Lorretta C
“I’ve been to most of the major jewelers in town and when I was looking for a wedding ring for my fiancée. I was very selective in choosing a jeweler. Rock N Gold really knows their industry. I was very pleased with their knowledge of their craft and was quite comfortable during the entire process. In my opinion they are world class!!” Comment by John A
“Simon and his staff has designed several custom pieces for our family, and we couldn’t be happier with his designs over the last 19 years. His customer service is 5-stars and the quality of his work superb. Simon receives our vote and support for San Diego’s best award. Rock-n-Gold has earned that title and the distinction to be San Diego’s best jeweler!” Comment by Dedicated Customer
“Simon & Victoria are THE nicest people on the planet! To top that, ROCK-N-GOLD creates stunning, exquisite, GORGEOUS jewelry. I highly recommend you meet them and their Business!!! You won’t be disappointed!”Comment by KiKi Stafford
