My process of getting my engagement ring started six months before I found what I was looking for at Ben Garelicks. I searched website photos, Pinterest, other jewelers, etc. and found the most perfect ring here! What was also especially great was the service and patience given to me & my fiancé by father & son team here during the process. There was communications of drawings, slight changes and in the end, I got the engagement ring even more beautiful than I expected. Ben Garelicks recognized how special this process was and was very understanding throughout. Thank you.
THE BEST JEWELERS IN TOWN!!!!! A+++ all around!! If you have never been here, you should definitely check them out. They will go above and beyond to help you and you will leave 110% satisfied!!!
Peter Sr and staff are the most amazing, down to earth people. They listen to your wants/needs and your concerns and guide you in the most professional and respectful manner. They are never pushy, they will never misguide you and they will do their best to get you the most sentimental piece of jewelry.
Matt and I would like to send our dearest thank you to everyone at Ben Garelicks!!! With your outstanding service, care, professionalism and kindness, you helped Matt choose the most gorgeous engagement ring for me!!!
Buying an engagement ring can be overwhelming for most. After talking with Matt, he said how Peter Sr. put Matt's mind at ease and worked with our needs and budget. We will forever be grateful of your thoughtfulness. My ring is extra special to me knowing how much care went into it!! We have told so many about you and the staff at Ben Garelick Jewelers, and we will continue to do so!!! Mark my words, we will not step foot in another jewelry store.
We have received endless compliments on my ring from men, women, friends, family and even strangers!! We appreciate all you did for us and look forward to visiting again soon to pick out our wedding bands!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!
Oh and to top this off, we did celebrate with the bottle of champagne they gave us :)

My wife and I purchased our wedding rings here, and Peter got us a wedding band to perfectly match my wife's engagement ring which was purchased elsewhere. The experience was pleasant and we went back and have purchased several more items from this store since including necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and watches. We're very happy with everything we've bought, each piece is stylish, high quality, and durable. More important, the service is phenomenal and the staff is amongst the friendliest folks in town. Peter always puts a smile on our face whether we purchase anything that day or not. I won't shop for jewelry anywhere else after being treated so well here.
I purchased my engagement ring with Peter Jr. in December of 2012. Ben Garelick Jewelers was an absolute pleasure to work with, personifying professionalism and class.
I went to Ben Garelick looking for a ring I had in mind, with no luck at other jewelers in town. As I perused the case, I didn't see what I was looking for, but found something close. But that wasn't what I wanted. As with other Jewelers, Ben Garelick carries jewelery lines from select designers. I expected the "well, you can take a look at their catalog online and we can order what you want" response that others have given me. But that wasn't helping me either. Then Peter Jr. suggested we design it ourselves.
My ears immediately perked up. After talking up some ideas, we had the on staff jeweler, Brian, (more like an architect, designer, craftsman, wizard) give us his opinion as to what would work best. A few days later, CAD pictures were drawn up reflecting everything I wanted!
Everyone at the store was so accommodating and friendly; as if I was a neighbor who came over for the holidays. Peter Jr. responded to all my questions immediately and was very patience and kind, before and after the sale. They even produced a sterling silver prototype of my design to insure that my vision would be reflected correct. We changed a minor detail (seemed good on paper but not 3 dimensional) and a couple weeks later my engagement ring I created was in my hands, and it was exactly what I specified. Beautiful!
My fiancee absolutely adores it. We came in recently to pick out our bands and I cant reiterate how much of a pleasure it is to be in the company of such wonderful people. Thank you again Ben Garelick Jewelers, Peter Jr., Brian, and staff for all your help!
We recently purchased our engagement ring at Ben Garelick Jewellers, and had a wonderful experience. We frequently visited the store while trying to make a decision, and dealt with Peter Manka Jr. Peter was knowledgeable, patient and never made us feel pressured to make a purchase. Even though we must have dropped by, called and emailed him dozens of times before finally making a purchase! We had our ring shipped to us in Canada and Peter made the whole process very simple and easy for us. We couldn't be happier with our ring, and with the service we received. Thanks Peter!
I have been shopping at Ben Garelick for a little over a year now. My wife is hooked on the BG goods. The last purchase I made was a crystal bracelet for her 1st mother's day. I am a city dweller and I find the experience and trip to Ben Garelick has been worth it every time. The staff knows their stuff. Every time I am there they offer me something to drink. They also keep tabs on everything my wife likes when she goes in, so it makes my shopping experience much easier. We have also purchased my mother-in-law a pandora bracelet from here and now we come back all the time for charms. It has been a great gift.
I have recommended Ben Garelick to all my closest friends. It has been the most stress free jewelry shopping experience I have ever had. Plus it doesn't hurt that everyone loves their gifts from BG.
I have been doing business with Ben Garelick Jewelers since he was downtown in the Ellicott Square building. My husband bought my engement ring there over 20 years ago. The staff have always been extremely accomodating and friendly. Whether we are spending in the $1,000s or buying one Pandora charm - they make you feel like you are their most important customer. That means everything to me.
I have been shopping with Ben Garelick Jeweler's since I was very young. My father and I went when I was about 12 to look for a loose diamond to replace the one my mother lost. I was impressed with the way that Peter Sr. was able to read my father's expressions as we looked at diamond after diamond trying to find the right one. Finally, Peter pulled out something from his pocket, and it was perfect. Since then I have made several purshases there myself. Peter has done wonders to find the perfect stone for whatever I needed (my fiance is a diamond snob). I have never been anything but happy with the experiences that I have had with this establishment. I still continue to use them even though I have moved to the other side of the state. I hope to be able to continue shopping there for many years to come.
The staff at Ben Garelick are always helpful, attentive and genuinely concerned about your needs. They treat you as a person and not just a customer. I bought the engagement ring for my fiance there as well as our wedding bands and a few other gifts here and there. The most memorable part of the Ben Garelick experience is actually walking in to a jeweler and feeling comfortable. Bottom line; great jewelery, great people, and a great experience.
I have been shopping at Ben Garelick for 20 years. My father introduced me to them when I was 16 years old. They were located downtown at that time. I have never had anything other than exceptional service and quality from them. All of the employees go above and beyond! I highly recommend this shop for all of your fine jewelry needs. I never stop receiving compliments on my wedding/engagement rings, or any other pieces I wear. I still have my 14k gold name plate necklace from 20 years ago, it was great to have when Sex and the City made them popular again! I suggest you stop in to say hello and browse the beautiful jewelry, you won't be disappointed!
We have been doing business with Peter and Ben Garelick Jewelers for over 25 years and have found this business to be outstanding!! I have purchased numerous gifts in their store and luckily, have had many gifts purchased for me. All of my children purchased their engagement and wedding ring sets through Ben Garelick and they have been wonderful. They are always extremely professional and extremely helpful and their prices are very competive.
I would and have highly recommended this business and look forward to many more years of business with both Jennifer and Peter Jr.
Ben Garelick Jewelers is awesome! They have a great selection and the customer service is out of this world. I went there to buy a Pandora Charm for my Girlfriends 40th Birthday. What a selection they have! I now have my own and this is where I go to buy all my charms. My husband and parents shop here now all the time as well!
I can't say enough good things about Peter and Ben Garelick Jewelers. Since purchasing our engagement ring and wedding rings ten years ago, we have gone to Ben Garelick repeatedly for all our jewelry needs. They are always welcoming, helpful, reasonably priced and provide us with top quality jewelry. We will never go anywhere else!
I used the website http://bengarelick.com to purchase a ring for my wife. The web interface was easy to navigate and when I had a question I called the number and talked to a person who was working in the store and could answer specifics about the very items I was looking at online. They were helpful and friendly and made the whole experience much easier and less stressful for me.
The ring arrived a couple (three?) days after I ordered it. I think the order must have been filled the day I made the online purchase as I had the item shipped several states away. Anyway, it was beautifully wrapped and the ring itself looked even better in person than it did on the online photo.
I have had the occasion to visit this store in the past which is why I decided to buy from them directly online. It is a charming, locally-owned jewelry store with an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. They were very honest and forthright with me when I was there and never gave me any contrived sales pitches. The store itself is beautifully designed, and everything is catered with the customer's comfort in mind. They even offer quality refreshments for customers who need to spend a significant amount of time in the store.
Overall I would rate this store as one of the best jewelry stores I have ever dealt with. They are professional in every respect and they really care about their customers. Highly recommend.
I can't say enough about the great experience I have had with ben garlick, I bought an engagement ring there and will be buying our wedding rings there! I went to a lot of jewelers before stoping there and none of them gave me the service that peter from there did! I just honestly can not say enough good stuff about them!
My boyfriend gave me THE RING last month and it's so pretty. I get compliments all the time. We already started looking at wedding bands at Ben Garelick Jewelers. We don't have a huge budget but they treated us so nicely and told me so much more about my diamond. It's called a Firemark and it's the best cut princess diamond so that's pretty cool. I trusted them to repair my old ring I've had from my mom and it came out beautifully. Thanks Ben G!
I purchased my engagement ring just last week and have to say it was top notch service every step of the way. No pressure at all and they didn't care what I was spending. I felt like they were genuine and really wanted to help me. Before I purchased the diamond from there they let me take a copy of the certificate home, which most places were against this. They also do not charge for setting your diamond. The diamond trad-up is awesome...thanks again. I worked with both Peter and his son and again, so nice and very patient. I highly recommend this place to all of my friends.Very, very happy.
Awesome job! My family had been going to Ben Garelicks for everything and glad my husband knew to get my ring there. It is so pretty and I get compliments all the time. We went back to get our wedding bands from them (mine is the exact match to the ring) and on his they replicated the wedding ring that his grandfather wore. They did such a nice job replicating this ring and the lady who helped us was so kind and helpful. Thanks again and I recommend them to everyone.
