Johnny and Gillian
I proposed to Gillian in Paris last Friday. I had planned on doing it on Saturday, but our schedule was all over the place as we were supposed to have family box passes to watch Novak Djokovic in the semifinals of the French open on the Friday, and those fell apart when his parents decided to fly in at the last minute to watch the match.
So I packed the ring (in the pouch) in my shirt pocket and we set out for the day. After touring the catacombs and the Musee Rodin, we walked through St. germain to Jardin Luxembourg. I have loved this park since childhood trips and always preferred the idea of something low key vs. one of the big Parisian attractions. We picked up Macarons and champagne on the way and found a nice quiet spot in the North end of the park. We hung out and chatted for a bit and As gill was about to open the champagne, I asked her to hold on, that we should have a reason to celebrate first and then dropped to a knee and proposed.
Even though she was expecting it at some point and thought it might happen on the trip, she was truly surprised, which I had hoped for.
As mentioned before, thanks again for everything. The process was simple and trouble-free and the ring is perfect. We are constantly amazed by just how much light it seems to reflect. I have enclosed a few photos and will send more once we have had a chance to upload some.
We will be in touch later this year about wedding rings for next year, and at that time will likely look into swapping the signature stone for either a gray or white one.

On the evening of October 12, 2013, to my complete surprise, Dan got down on one knee and proposed with the most beautiful ring that I’ve ever laid eyes on. I had an idea of the engagement ring I wanted, but the cushion cut ring from Jean Dousset surpassed anything I could have ever wanted in a ring. The detail is impeccable and the brilliance is breathtaking. Thank you so much for making such an incredibly beautiful ring. I can’t stop looking at it!
Two weeks before I was planning on proposing I met with Jean and asked him to do the impossible… I asked him to create a beautiful ring in two weeks and at a specific price. Jean patiently sat down with me and discussed everything. He wasn’t sure if he could do it, but was willing to make it happen somehow. He never tried to push a larger or more expensive ring. He asked me what I wanted and when I thought I should go bigger he assured me it would not be the right choice. Two weeks later… on the day I was planning on proposing, I picked up an amazing ring in the morning and proposed later that night. The ring was absolutely brilliant. I’ve never seen anything sparkle, so much…
Jean and his amazing staff made all possible and to this day we both can’t stop looking at the ring!

We couldn’t be more thrilled with our experience with Jean Dousset and his team! From the moment we walked into Jean’s office we were confident that he would design the perfect ring. We discussed what we wanted and Jean was very focused on our vision, and worked within our budget. We never hesitated to call Jean if we had any questions. He was always available to help, and the ring was completed for our fairytale proposal. The process of looking for the perfect ring can be quite stressful, which we now realize is not how it should be, and with Jean there was never a hesitation or doubt. It is the ring we have always dreamed about, and to add to the fairytale, Jean named the ring design “Lauren”. Jean will be our jeweler and friend for a lifetime!
Thank you so much Jean!

I will miss the weekly emails back and forth and will definitely be recommending you to anyone interested in purchasing jewelry. You all have made this whole experience so much better for us! I can thank you all enough!
We are extremely satisfied and wish you a lifetime of happy clients and continuous success!!

I just received the ring in the mail and I must say it looks stunning! Thank you so much for your time and expertise throughout every step of this process. You have worked with me on every detail to make this ring perfect for Court. She won’t get to see it until I propose, but she’s dropped enough hints in recent months for me know know she will love it. I am in the planning phase of the engagement itself, but I know one thing I won’t have to worry about is the ring.
Thank you again for the professionalism and courtesy I’ve experienced since day 1 of this process. What I’ve truly noticed that sets you apart from the NYC showrooms of Cartier & Tiffany’s is genuine interest and warmth from everyone at Jean Dousset (including yourself, Jean)… and you managed to achieve this from across the country!
I appreciate everything, and I’ll be sure to let you know once Court says Yes!

Brendan and Lindsey
I want to thank the entire team at Jean Dousset Diamonds for such an amazing experience and for creating such a special engagement ring for Lindsey. From start to finish I could not be more impressed as to how personalized and attentive my experience was with Jean Dousset Diamonds. Your efforts to complete Lindsey’s ring in an accelerated time frame, and wait after hours so that the ring could be picked up in time for my flight to Asia, was above and beyond what others would do. The ring that you crafted for Lindsey is STUNNING and a beautiful symbol of my love and commitment to her. I am grateful for the care and thought that your team put forth to make Lindsey’s engagement ring so incredibly special.

Michael and Debbie
The experience with Dousset Diamonds was priceless. Jean was both very knowledgeable and accommodating. If you’ve browsed for rings, you’ve most likely dabbled with the 4 C’s to try to get the most value out of your budget. What we later realized is that not all of the same grades are equal. Meaning two diamonds of the same color grades or same clarity grades are different. One may have barely made the cut for the grade and the other may have barely missed the cut for the next grade up. Jean makes this process easy by hand selecting the best loose stones for you to browse in his showroom. You will always be choosing from the best. He truly goes “beyond the 4 C’s” to get you the most value. Our experience in his Beverly Hills showroom was one to remember. Never have either of us seen so many loose stones in person. It’s one thing to walk in to a store and browse their selection of engagement rings on display or to shop online by inputting your desired diamond specifications, but nothing compares to physically handling and seeing these beautiful stones in person. Being a part of the design and creation of your engagement ring makes it a personable one that everyone should experience. An engagement ring shouldn’t be just a ring. It should be an experience that tells a story. Everyone’s story is unique and ours was no different. Jean brought this to life in the creation of Debbie’s engagement ring. Using her favorite cushion cut and her desired pave halo, Jean was able to personalize it and incorporate our story. We inconspicuously added a half moon cut signature stone under the gorgeous cushion cut diamond. Only visible from the inside of the ring. The half moon represents my family surname “Moon”. The green represents Debbie’s favorite color, which also happens to be the color of my birthstone. We were looking for a personalized ring that was both current and timeless. Jean brought our vision to life and we couldn’t be happier. Jean’s team worked in a timely manner with frequent updates and the ring was delivered right before our two week vacation to Beijing and Hong Kong, where we would end up getting engaged. Finding an engagement ring should be an experience and this definitely was. From start to finish, Jean and his team were very helpful and responsive. Thank you Jean! We couldn’t be more grateful.

Ryan and Liesl
You’ve found the perfect person with whom you want to spend the rest of your life…now what? If you’re like me, you had a little help from your special someone in pointing you in the right direction. My fiancée Liesl, had been doing some internet searching from our New York City apartment and found a craftsman with the most beautiful designs she had ever seen, but he happened to be not-so-conveniently located in Los Angeles.
As a first-timer entering the world of diamond and ring selection, it can be very daunting. When selecting a jewelry designer, you want to know you can trust the person to deliver on their promises and not take advantage of you. These two concerns are compounded when you can’t meet them face-to-face. Luckily for me, Jean Dousset is a professional in every sense of the word. Jean always responded to my emails right away and put me at ease. He encouraged videoconferencing by Google+ and FaceTime. This enabled us to have as much of a “face-to-face” conversation as physically possible when you’re a few thousand miles apart. Using the internet to discuss ideas with Jean, create a new design, and shape the ring’s crafting was a wonderful experience. I felt as if I was in his shop discussing Liesl’s ring and, all the while, I hadn’t left my New York apartment.
Jean made the process easier than seeing a local jeweler and I can’t stress this enough. From the beginning, I felt entirely comfortable with Jean and his approach. He not only wants to create rings that he, himself, would be proud to make, but he is incredibly interested in the value to the client. Once the setting was chosen with our desired modifications to an existing design, I had many great diamond options, but selecting one can easily throw you off your feeling of being on solid ground. Jean worked with my price range and, as his motto says, he truly goes “beyond the 4 C’s” in getting you the best diamond possible.
Although I’m glad I won’t ever have to buy another engagement ring, the process was a genuinely fun one from inception to delivery. Jean made everything more enjoyable than I would have ever imagined.

Working with Jean to design our perfect engagement ring was an exciting and wonderful experience from start to finish. Jean assembled a spectacular selection of diamonds embodying his “beyond the 4 C’s” approach which we were able to browse through at our leisure in his LA showroom. Jean made us feel incredibly welcome and guided us through the the whole process with the utmost patience, care and warm professionalism. Needless to say, the cushion cut stone and Riviera ring design we finally chose look absolutely stunning and we couldn’t be more happy with the result. Our trip to LA to choose our engagement ring will always be a truly special memory for us thanks to the amazing, personalized customer service of Jean and his team.
