Woking with Jean was a delightful and seamless experience. His attention to detail, design and execution was flawless throughout, bringing to life from a mere concept, a true piece of art. With integrity and transparency throughout the entire process, Jean created something undeniably unique with unfathomable beauty. Merci!
Gerard and Sarah
So incredibly happy with my experience!!!
If you want a beautiful custom ring that is made from the highest quality by true artists then Jean Dousset and his team is the place to get it from.
I have to say, buying a ring is not as easy as you would think, at least for me! I am very inexperienced when it comes to jewelry. There are so many variables that go into purchasing the perfect diamond. For example… clarity, grading, size in carrots, logistics, etc, etc. I had so many questions but after meeting with Jean, all my worries about buying an engagement ring were put to rest. He patiently educated me about diamonds, settings and even explained how I can maximize my budget. Jean and his team were extremely transparent and honest every step of the way.
Jean helped me create the perfect ring for my now fiancé. The entire process was incredible, they were able to run with whatever deign ideas I could imagine. The oval diamond is the cut I chose and we went with the seamless halo which added an extra layer of brilliance to the ring. I even was able to add a signature stone to the setting which is one of my fiancé’s favorite part of the ring. The final product, exceeded my expectations by miles and Sarah my fiancé was speechless at how gorgeous the ring truly is.
Thank you so much for making this experience thorough, easy and bringing our dreams to life.
Josh and Christine
I feel like I’m living in my own real life fairy tale. I keep looking down at this beautiful, perfect, elegant ring and I can barely believe it’s really mine! I have butterflies and I am so in love! When my amazing husband brought me to Jean Dousset to upgrade my wedding ring, it was like a dream. Meeting and working with Jean has been so wonderful! He is not only an incredibly talented designer but he so kind and passionate about creating something uniquely inspired by our love story. Jean Dousset and his expert team took my dream ring beyond its flawless craftsmanship and exceptional materials and somehow captured all the joy and love that my husband and I share. I can’t help but feel loved and treasured every time I wear it. Thank you Jean, Angela, Franci and your entire team for making something so extraordinary for us. We will always be grateful.

The experience of buying an engagement ring has a new standard and it’s with Jean Dousset. I was blown away by their customer service which is second to none and Jean and his team make their availability of utmost importance. I visited other jewelers and just didn’t feel my best interests were a priority. Having your diamond hand-picked by an expert like Jean ensures the prettiest ring possible instead of relying on some GIA certificate which only tells half of the story. Is there a premium for such service… absolutely, but I’d pay for the amazing end result any day. The craftsmanship is impeccable and the ring is so beautiful and unique. My fiancé Kelly was overwhelmed. Overall, a truly amazing experience and I give my highest recommendations. A “Jean Dousset” ring will be a household name one day, I truly believe in his vision and wish him all the success.
Dustin and Kristin
Working with Angela from Jean Dousset for our engagement ring has been an amazing experience. All of the staff has been very kind and helpful during the whole process. Being a stress ball, I was nervous about this whole process and how it would be, especially since we don’t live in the Southern California area. Angela and Franci have made this process seamless and listened to all of my requests to make the most beautiful and perfect ring for us! Angela was also very patient in answering all of my questions and educating us about diamonds. We also never felt forced to commit to buying our ring at Jean Dousset in the beginning process of finding which jewelry we wanted to work with. But upon further research we found Jean Dousset to be the most accommodating with great customer service. Angela was also patient in letting us take our time with each step of the creation process which made me and my fiancé very comfortable. They also were able to make my ring in such a timely fashion to delivery to us. We enjoyed the whole process and it was not stressful at all! We love our engagement ring and everyone can’t help but comment on how beautiful and brilliant my diamond is. I am so glad that we chose Jean Dousset for our engagement ring!
Paul and Heather
JOYFUL is the word that I would use to describe how I feel looking at the stunning ring on my hand and would use that same word to describe the process of working with Jean, Angela and Franci at Jean Dousset!
My husband and I have been married for many years and we decided that something special was in store, just “because”and he was very aware of my love for jewellery and how much pleasure a professionally designed ring would bring – it needed to be special.
The entire process was all done through emails, videos and phone calls and absolutely every detail was explained/shown with precision and care – everyone at Jean Dousset took such pleasure in what they were creating for us.
Meeting Jean to present the rose gold Chelsea oval diamond, chatting over a coffee and hearing a little about his history & passion for the jewellery he creates gave such a comfort level to our purchase. We are in the retail business and feel we could not have received better value and service.
Jean Dousset and your beautiful team receive our highest recommendation!
Steve and Jenny
Dear Team Jean Dousset,
One of the most important thing that we were looking for was finding a piece that can stand as a representation of our relationship. Jean and his team had “us” in mind throughout the entire process, resulting in one of a kind engagement ring for my fiancée. From consultation to the delivery of the ring, everything was a seamless experience.
Thank you for making our special day possible!”
Zachariy and Victoria
I am extremely satisfied with the whole experience of learning about how Jean chooses his diamonds, selecting the perfect stone, and watching the amazing HD videos and pictures of the ring throughout the creation steps! Angela made the whole process incredibly easy and pleasant throughout and I felt very comfortable coming to her with any questions that I had at any time. Angela was very prompt and knowledgeable and I would 100% recommend Jean Dousset to all my friends. Now down to the ring! It truly is a masterpiece. When I first received the ring, I was nervous and as soon as I opened the ring box I really could not stop looking at the ring. The ring is the most sparkly I have ever seen and I could not be more happy with the design! The emerald style Signature Stone® and perfectly brilliant diamonds all around the band, really bring the ring to life in any lighting. My fiancé receives compliments every single day on the brilliance of her engagement ring and I am so proud to say that it is a Jean Dousset creation! Victoria is extremely happy and the first day she had her ring, it was impossible to turn her attention anywhere else. Angela and her team are so amazing and I really am so greatly appreciative that she made the whole experience so flawless and I feel like she played a huge role in my proposal being such an amazing success. As soon as Victoria laid eyes on the ring while I proposed in Amsterdam, you could not do anything to keep her from smiling the whole day. Thank you so so much for your participation in this amazing memory!
Maurice and Nikka
A Million Thanks!
Josh and Ellen
After talking with countless jewelers, we finally discovered Jean Dousset, and found the Chelsea ring. Both Jean and Angela were the kindest, most thoughtful and considerate people we had met along our journey. Within a few minutes of talking with them, we immediately knew that they truly understood what this experience meant to both of us… they made it their goal for our engagement to be as personal as possible. Angela helped me with every step of the process – ring design, diamond selection, and everything else. And she was always available at a moment’s notice for me, regardless of what questions I had.
A month ago I popped the question at the Sacré-Cœur in Paris, overlooking the city. It was an unforgettable experience, and the ring was the only thing I wasn’t nervous about. It’s because of Jean and Angela that our engagement was so special – it was the perfect ring, without question. We can’t thank you both enough – we’re excited that you were able to be a part of the journey with us!
Noah and Becky
I want to thank you, Jean, and Franci for helping me create this beautiful ring for Becky. She is absolutely in love with her sparkler.
I proposed to Becky on Labor Day weekend at a winery in Temecula, CA. It was a beautiful surprise and the ring just sparkled under the sun and blue skies. She cannot stop staring at her ring. She got so many compliments on how clear and sparkly the diamond is. I am so glad I had both my family and Becky’s to help me pick all the details of this ring. Your team really selected the best diamond to create it. I thank you and your team for working with me through each step, keeping me updated with the process, and showing me and my family the diamonds, the designs to make the perfect ring for Becky. The yellow diamond signature stone was perfect for her. We both love the fine details and craftsmanship you guys put in making this ring. Thank you so much!
Thank you Jean, Angela and Franci for helping Noah create this beautiful ring for me. I absolutely love every detail of this ring – the diamond you showed Noah and his parents is absolutely gorgeous. It sparkled at every angle when he proposed at the winery. It was truly a magical moment and I am glad Noah had the opportunity to work with an excellent team to create this for me. Thank you again!
Todd and Jennie
I just wanted to let you know how much Todd and I enjoyed working with you!
I LOVE MY RING!
It is so elegant and classy! Exactly what I imagined for my 20 year anniversary ring! I must say….YOU…. nailed it and I am so excited to have this lovely gem on my finger.
Not only it is a stunning piece of art, but it reminds us of our 20 years together in marriage. We are a truly blessed couple in many ways and seeing this gorgeous diamond on my hand will be a reminder everyday!
Thank you so much for this amazing moment!
Marisa and Kevin
Yesterday, on my most favorite cliff in Santa Cruz, Kevin got on bended knee to ask me for my hand in marriage! The ring (oh the ring!) was clipped to our dog’s collar in what was the most special moment ever.
We cannot thank you enough for making our engagement and ring creation process so personalized. The ring is absolutely perfect. As was the service and expertise brought to us by the Jean Dousset team!
Chancelor and Quynh
I would like to thank you for all your help in creating the perfect ring for me and Quynh. We could not have dreamt up a more perfect ring! Again, this could not have been possible without all of you!
Scarlett and Pat
Jean, thank you so much for making my dream come true! I absolutely adore my engagement ring. It’s truly beautiful, stunning and breathtaking. My heart skipped a beat when Pat proposed with this gorgeous ring. And I’ve gotten so many compliments from friends and strangers.
Thank you again so much and Angela has been such an angel throughout this process. You guys are amazing!
Garrett and Jennie
I just wanted to tell you that I proposed to Jennie in Key West at the butterfly conservatory. My parents and her parents were there as well to see it. She absolutely loves the ring and thinks it is the most perfect ring in the world. Thank you so much Angela and Franci for assisting me.
Adam and Amanda
The spot was at the peak of Dorr mountain in Bar Harbor, Maine, where we spent our vacation over the 4th. After an hour and a half hike up a 1266 feet of elevation we were lucky enough to find the summit to ourselves on a perfectly clear sunny day. I set the camera to record and asked Amanda’s sister in law to “take a photo” of us. She said yes, but of course after video review, it is clear that the decision wasn’t made until she fully inspected the ring ;-), so send Jean my warm regards as I can see he had my back.
Thank you again for your support through this very exciting time of our lives!
Miriam and Brendan
Brendan and I met nine years ago in August 2007 when we both had searched for happiness but had not found it. Over cupcakes, chased by wasps we bonded instantly. It was as if we had been friends for a long time. A magic few hours. During the following years grew the strongest and most loving relationship. We now have four children and an unbelievably indestructible bond.
With our anniversary coming up, we realized that we do not have a piece of jewelry to describe that magic bond, that true, deep love for each other.
When I saw Jean Dousset’s EVA in rose gold design I fell in love instantly and then when I read about Jean, his philosophy, and his passion for his craft I knew he would be the one who can express the love Brendan and I have for each other through a piece of jewelry.
Meeting Jean was so inspiring. He is a true artist and he loves making people happy, which, as a perfectionist, he is very good at.
The whole process was very enjoyable and the customer service was spectacular. Jean selected several perfect diamonds and we got to pick one for us. We will never forget the enchanted time, creating this piece of art.
Thank You Jean for your hard work and for your passion and for taking some extra time to make it possible for Brendan to surprise me by once again getting on his knee in the lobby at the Beverly Wilshire! For an engineer that is no easy task 😉
You created a magic ring for us, and it completely expresses who we are as a couple: deeply rooted, and traditional, yet edgy with dashes and dashes of sparkle.
We are eternally thankful and wish you many more years of success at making people incredibly happy. We became your biggest fans and will see you to pick matching bands for our renewal of vows ceremony coming up 🙂
Cheers to you Jean, Angela and the whole team at Jean Dousset. We raise a glass of Domaine Carneros Le Reve in your honor for our anniversary. Because, as our relationship is a dream come true for both of us, so are you! Merci beaucoup!
Jay and Vivian
Just did it guys! You guys will forever be apart of this amazing life experience for us. I can’t wait for her to meet you all!
Donato and Lauren
Trying to find the perfect ring, whose beauty, uniqueness, and elegance can convey the way I feel about the love of my life, was a challenge I thought unsurmountable. Jean crafted a ring that rose to the moment. His brilliance, craftsmanship, and artistry are unparalleled. Words cannot convey how thankful I am to Jean, Angela, and the entire Jean Dousset team. Through every conversation, Jean’s sole focus was on crafting the perfect ring for me and never once seemed to put his interests before mine. Jean and his team’s dedication to superb customer service made the entire experience extremely pleasurable and stress-free. From the first discussion with Angela, where she patiently answered all my questions and explained their process from beginning to end, I was put at ease. They kept me informed every step of the way and sent me pictures throughout the process. By doing so, it felt as though I lived around the corner from their show room and not 2,500 miles away.
It’s only fitting that this ring, which symbolizes the love my fiancé and I have together, was unmistakably crafted by someone who loved making it. Thank you Jean for making a ring that will continue to take our breath away for decades to come.
Carolyn and Evan
Jean and Angela,
Carolyn absolutely LOVED IT!! No surprise there of course! I literally cannot let her drive her car currently as she stares at the ring intently/non-stop and won’t pay any attention to traffic it seems. I am almost not joking here 😉
Eliza and Darin
I AM THE HAPPIEST WOMAN ALIVE!!! Darin proposed Saturday morning…. He woke me up at 3am kneeling by the bed in a full suit and the ring box illuminated the room hitting each facet of the diamond and filled the room with hundreds of magical little prisms it was unreal, there are no words. Once I figured out what happening in my sleepy state of twilight I tackled him. And now, this magical piece of precious brilliance adorns my left finger like in a frickin’ fairy tale princess. I am overwhelmed with it’s beauty, it’s even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. It’s absolutely breath taking. I LOVE IT!!!
Jean, you are an absolute genius. An artist beyond artists. I can’t wait to show the world and share with them you’re magnificent talent. Thank you thank you thank you!!
And thank you, Angela for being a little wizard in all of this as well! You two are a fantastic team. Thank you and also thank you for being so wonderfully sneaky with Darin and getting the ring earlier!!! BEST SURPRISE EVER! And honestly- nobody can ever surprise me, I know everything all the time so the fact that you all did this speaks volumes to your character and wizardry. 😉
Eliza and Darin
James and Nicole
Words cannot even begin to express how unbelievably beautiful the ring you and my fiancé designed is. It truly is the most beautiful and perfect ring I’ve ever seen in my entire life. What was even more special, is that you were able to capture our special love in each delicate gorgeous detail. I cannot thank you enough for making my ring and this moment the most incredible, important time in my entire life! You are truly talented.
Anh and Sao Mai
Singapore & Vietnam
I proposed yesterday to Sao Mai! It was a surprise to her. She had a feeling I was proposing this weekend but I surprised her by going on Thursday instead by flying back early from Singapore. It was done in front of our closest friends, with our favorite song playing in the background. Sao Mai was shocked and she was blown away by how beautiful the ring is. Everyone else was too and some even said it is definitely the best ring in Vietnam :).
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you so much for being with us in the last month. The care with which you took to create the ring and the responsiveness was truly phenomenal. When I opened the box and saw the ring for the first time, I literally screamed because of how beautiful it was.
Ali and Mina
Thanks soooo much to you and your wonderful team for the beautiful ring. I’m in love with it and keep staring at all the time. The diamond is beautiful, the craftsmanship is superb and most importantly your service and attention throughout this whole process is outstanding! I thank you for making this process as stress free as it can be.
Allen & Jehee
Our experience at Jean Dousset far surpassed our expectations. Prior to meeting with him, we thought we would go with one of the larger high-end commercial jewelers we had previously visited, but decided to go to him just to make sure we “covered all of our bases” and met with a more custom jeweler.
By 10 minutes into the consultation, we knew we would be sticking with Jean. His knowledge, attention to detail, patience, and confidence, made us feel comfortable putting the ring in his hands. We wanted a ring unique to us, and he was supportive and excited to do a custom design for this purpose. As we waited for the ring to be made, Angela sent many updates on the progress, complete with photos (to which I was not privy) – another testament to the level of individualized attention and service that is part of the Jean Dousset experience.
On just another morning walk along one of our favorite NorCal beaches, Abby, our beagle, helped present me with the ring and a question while we rested on a now very special bench. The ring was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined; the perfection of its design, construction, color of the pink diamonds, and in particular, the quality and sparkle of the center diamond that Jean chose, continue to amaze me. It really does look like a princess ring! I also like to (briefly) take off the ring at times to see the signature stone, which is my fiance’s birth stone and allows me to always have a piece of him with me.
We could not have asked for a better experience, and we will be forever grateful to Jean for creating the perfect ring to symbolize my fiance’s and my promise to each other!
Warren and Tarasa
Warren bought a ring while he was living overseas in El Salvador and we finally had the wedding back in July! Thanks so much for helping him pick out the most beautiful ring that I STILL ALWAYS get compliments on from strangers all over! Thank you guys for being so great and giving him such a positive experience throughout it all! I know it was tough for him while we were living so far away!
Dale & April
We got engaged over the Holiday. Dale proposed at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel on Christmas Day and our pictures were taken shortly after the proposal. The photos definitely do not do the ring justice. We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous job you did on the ring.
I am absolutely in LOOOOVE and have received so many compliments.
Brian and Christina
I would first off like to thank Angela for all her assistance. Your friendliness made you extremely easy to work with and you were always very helpful. I would like to thank Jean as well for making me feel like a celebrity. I had no idea what I was doing, but with your experience and expertise you allowed me to design the most beautiful ring anyone’s every seen. Or at least that’s what I have been told by EVERYONE. We have been engaged for six months now and I still catch Christina looking at it every other minute. (And that’s not an exaggeration.) We actually have had several friends get engaged over the last few months, and it’s always funny to see how everyone tries to somewhat replicate Christina’s ring, but the fact is they don’t come close. And I’m sure their experience in this process doesn’t either. This was the best money I ever spent, and we both haven’t stopped singing your praise. Thanks so much for all your help, and helping me make Christina the happiest girl in the world, with the most beautiful ring in the world.
Xuan and James
Jean made our dream come true! Usually my fiancée is extremely picky and hard to satisfy. Not this time! She was swept away by Jean’s ring design. It was more beautiful than we ever anticipated and she’s more in love with the ring with each passing day. Jean went out of his way to accommodate our stringent ring requirements and still managed to stay within our budget. More than once we told him that his custom ring settings were beautiful and his diamonds were beyond brilliant, but we didn’t believe it was possible for us to afford his works of art. Yet, Jean would always come back with a new proposal until we were completely satisfied. After three months of back and forth emails and phone calls, we received our dream engagement ring.
Angela was also very approachable and went out of her way to help us in a courteous, professional manner. We never felt rushed. We visited Jean’s showroom twice and both times they accommodated our last minute scheduling, even during a three-day holiday weekend.
If you’re searching for that perfect engagement ring, establish a relationship with Jean and you’ll be completely satisfied with his meticulous designs and excellent service. Jean made our journey in finding our engagement ring fun, exciting, and unforgettable.
Elizabeth & Mo
The experience with Jean Dousset and his team was truly remarkable. The service was impeccable and the custom ring they created for us was stunning. I went to Jean a month before I wanted to propose and his whole team was so accommodating. Jean immediately understood what I wanted and crafted the perfect ring. My fiancée was overwhelmed with joy and absolutely loved her ring. It is rare to find such a master at his craft who was so attentive and willing to walk me through the process step by step with such warmth and compassion. We are beyond thrilled and are so happy we found him and Angela. There truly is no better place to purchase an engagement ring. Thank you so much, and we look forward to making a trip to California to look for our wedding bands!
Tomasz and Jessica
My fiancé and I want to thank Jean Dousset and his team for creating the perfect engagement ring and for the spectacular experience with our purchase. Jean along with Angela helped me create a ring that is absolutely gorgeous. They took the time to get to know me and explained everything I wanted and needed to know about the diamond and settings. They made the process so easy and kept me informed as the ring was being made. In short Jean and Angela helped me create Jessie’s dream ring that truly took her breath away and that she will be happy to wear for the rest of her life. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and my fiancé couldn’t be more in love with her ring! Thank you again!
Anh and Phi
There are jewelers, and then there is Jean Dousset. My fiancé and I talked to a handful of jewelers but we knew Jean and his team were the best within a few minutes of meeting. His craftsmanship, attention to detail, and easy demeanor made the entire experience exceptional. We felt reassured and safe in Jean’s hands despite veering from the norm with our ring design. His staff was amazing about communication and follow up. Angela was an absolute dream to work with – I’ve yet to experience this type of service in any industry.
We were beyond excited to see the finished product and the wait was worth it! I asked Anh to be my wife over the summer and the ring was just the perfect cherry on top of a beautiful day. I just wanted to express my gratitude to Jean and his team for offering an exceptional, unrivaled experience.
Anna and Adam
It all started out with my now fiancé Anna spending several days searching Pinterest, and that’s where we were introduced to the designs by Jean Dousset. Our conversations with Jean were made easy through several Skype hookups, where we realized how Jean’s offering and interaction in the ring design process was far better than what was available here in Sydney. We decided together to capture a piece of Australia in the ring and include a halo of Argyle pink diamonds. With his design and careful diamond selection, Jean was able to come up with several options in preparation for our arrival to the US. While we were doing our west to east coast road trip, we decided to also purchase our wedding bands, and Angela was able to easily accommodate our requests. We were very impressed with the end to end service offered by Jean and his team. And to top off our US trip, I decided to propose to Anna twice, both in Central Park, NY and once again at Mulholland lookout, Hollywood Hills (where we visited together previously 3 years ago). Thanks once again; Anna loves the ring every time she looks at it (and so do I)!!!
Charles and Tory
Purchasing an engagement ring from someone who is 3,000 miles away is something I thought I would never consider.
That being said, I would not hesitate to do it again. The look on the faces of my fiancé Tory, family, friends, and anyone else who sets an eye on the ring is priceless. Tory and I love the attention to detail, craftsmanship, and brilliance of the ring. Jean Dousset and his team are experts who are easy to trust because they execute at the highest level. I was updated regularly throughout the process: sharing their advice on key decisions, updating me on the status of the ring, and coordinating all the important details. Jean even took time out of his summer vacation to speak to me from Paris to make sure that the ring was ready on time. Thank you so much to Jean and his team for a world class experience in purchasing an engagement ring that continues to distract me with its beauty when I am with Tory.
Eric and Maria
When my fiancée and I began discussing marriage, we began the journey of looking for the perfect ring. We came upon Jean Dousset, and right away we both were captured by his engagement rings. The close attention to detail, and the rare Rose Gold rings sprung our interest. I began to video chat, exchange email’s with Ms. Angela and Mr. Dousset himself. They helped me create the perfect ring for my fiancée. Their professionalism and expertise on the subject aided me in creating a one of a kind custom ring. My fiancée was ecstatic at how beautiful the ring was when she saw it. This experience could not have been better! Thank you Ms. Angela and Mr. Jean Dousset for being a part of our love story!
Jeff and Kelly
Thank you so much to Jean and the team at Jean Dousset Diamonds. My experience couldn’t have been any better! The ring is incredible and my Fiancé is so happy. The entire experience from start to finish was fantastic. I really appreciate how they helped me decide on the style and how they kept me in the loop during every phase of production. I can’t even count how many compliments we have gotten on the ring. It is absolutely stunning! Thank you for helping make the most special moment of my life so incredible. I would recommend Jean Dousset Diamonds to everyone!
Chris and Jacqueline
Working with Jean was truly a great experience. Jean and his team are highly professional and make the process of selecting the perfect engagement ring easy and enjoyable. Jean was flexible and kept me in the loop from start to finish. My fiancé absolutely loves her ring and receives compliments on it all the time. Don’t waste your time or money going elsewhere!
Brian and Tamika
Well where do I began…. the experience with Angela and Jean Dousset went above and beyond what I expected in this once in a lifetime experience. The customer service and attention to detail was second to none. From the time I contacted Jean Dousset I was greeted with a very punctual, educational, and non-aggressive response. I felt as if Angela was more so a friend that just happened to be a subject matter expert, advising me on the best decision for Tamika and I instead of trying to sell me a ring. Angela was also very helpful and reassuring with all of my questions, as I was very skeptical due to the fact that I live halfway across the country. From the time I picked out the ring, I was personally contacted by Jean and we went over several diamonds and he gave me his honest opinion. It really meant a lot to me that he didn’t try to sell me the most expensive diamond in my budget, but instead told me which diamond he thought looked the best which was far from the most expensive. During the process of making the ring Angela constantly sent me pictures and kept me updated with the progress of the ring. Once the ring was complete I received it the next day and it was the most beautiful ring I’d ever seen and exactly what I wanted. I proposed to Tamika in Dubai on New Years during the world’s largest fireworks display and it all came together for an epic night. People in attendance could not stop talking about the craftsmanship of the ring and how beautiful it was. Seeing the look on Tamika’s face made every hard earned cent I spent worth it ten fold. Her face still lights up every time she looks at it 9 months later and she never wants to take it off. I would definitely recommend Jean Dousset to anyone looking for a one of a kind ring and excellent personalized customer experience. Thank you Angela and Jean for everything and exceeding my high expectations. I will definitely be back for our wedding bands and look forward to it. God Bless.
Jeff and Tammy
I cannot believe I have something this beautiful on my hand that’s beyond spectacular and truly one of a kind. When Jeff proposed and opened the black box, my mouth dropped when I saw this perfect piece of art. After the tears subsided (for a minute or so) he informed me of his experience with Jean Dousset and his team. I was so moved to hear he spent time speaking and skyping with Jean while they created the “Tammy” engagement ring. Of course, as he’s telling me the details of the ring, the tears are filling my eyes yet again… But my favorite memory was how proud Jeff was about the product he and Jean created together. Not only do I receive compliments everywhere I go, but I have a totally unique symbol of our love that will last a lifetime.
Elle and Alex
I just wanted to send you the HUGEST thank you for making me the most beautiful ring I have ever seen in my life. I pretty much have done nothing for the last week because I can’t stop staring at it! I don’t know if you have seen, but I have posted some Instagram pictures and also the Proposal video!
I also talk about you and the ring process in another video.
Thank you so so so much for making this all happen and I can’t wait to come in to look at wedding bands!
– Elle and Alex
Tiffany and John
I wanted to let you know that everything went great. I proposed on April 8th while on vacation in New Orleans visiting my parents. I must say that the ring is stunning and she has gotten nothing but compliments. Everyone loves that my birthstone was used as the Signature Stone ®. Really a great touch.
Once again guys thank you so much for everything you have done to help make this happen. Now on to planning the wedding…
Abby and Jeffrey
Though she wanted her proposal to be a surprise, my girlfriend Abby wanted to design her own ring, as she knew she could be quite particular (i.e., picky) and wanted it to be completely unique. So we started looking. Prior to meeting with Jean, we had already seen countless rings and narrowed down our choices to two other designers. But when we saw Jean’s rings, everything else disappeared from our minds. We knew Jean was the one. His craftsmanship is exquisite and his detail work is… well… indescribable. We were impressed by the rings on his website, but they looked even better in person. Moreover, Jean was willing to customize a ring just to Abby’s liking, with the addition of Art Nouveau details to the basket, and was endlessly patient with emailing/calling us throughout the design process. I was blown away when the finished ring was revealed to me. Abby wholeheartedly agrees – after I popped the question to her in the Santa Monica mountains. She couldn’t stop talking about how stunning the ring is. She loves it! In fact, she’s already begun to recommend Jean to her friends. We can’t thank Jean and his team enough (Angela and Basile, we didn’t forget you guys!) and feel so blessed to have reached this milestone in our lives with the help of such amazing people.
Tessa and Jacob
Dear Jean Dousset team,
I am so thrilled! Not only did Jacob pull off totally surprising me when he proposed, he completely stunned me with my ring. He knew how much I loved this design, but I left the actual shopping and picking out of our engagement ring to him. I thought there was something special in staying out of the details and being surprised. Little did I know he would buy me my dream ring — the only one I’ve ever seen where I’ve loved every aspect, every proportion, every detail.
Now that I’ve spent a couple weeks with the ring on my finger I appreciate those details even more. It is a beautiful piece and I feel like I am wearing an elegant and feminine work of art! I cannot wait ‘til it is paired with a lovely JD wedding band… or two 🙂
We’ve attached a few photos from our engagement weekend. Jacob had one instruction regarding proposing… I had told him, “if I am wearing something that could be described as athletic apparel, I will say no” ;). Jacob is from Colorado and I was afraid his ideal proposal would be marching me to the top of mountain and dropping to a knee with both of us drenched and exhausted. Clever boy used that against me and planned a fake hiking/camping trip at Pinnacles National Park. We went to the park (so beautiful!) but instead of camping we ended up at a lovely, secluded B&B surrounded by vineyards. He had secretly stashed or packed everything we would need to get dressed up and make a night of it.
Thank you for everything. My ring is exquisite and I will cherish it!

Working with Jean was a one of a kind experience. I am from Texas and was somewhat skeptical at first not being able to actually see the ring in person until it was completed. However, all my doubts washed away once I saw the ring when it came in. Jean made the ring purchase experience extremely easy and fun, creating a unique ring for my fiancé. The ring receives compliments everyday, and people are always asking where I got this amazing ring! Most importantly, the ring made my fiancé’s jaw drop to the ground when I proposed! There is no one else I would rather use than Jean, and I 100% believe in his work. Thanks again Jean for the beautiful ring and hope to visit you sometime!

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making me the most beautiful engagement ring in the world, just like you said! You have all exceeded our expectations. We definitely chose the right jeweler. You and your team are truly AMAZING! I will be sure to send our engagement pictures once we take them so that you can post pictures or have them to show future clients. 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!!

Oliver and Allee
Friday night, the same day that the supreme court made marriage legal for anyone who desires, I convinced Allee walk up to the Lincoln Memorial on the national mall and proposed to her up there. The ring was perfect, the night was perfect and the whole day was perfect. I’m so happy and so is she, everyone LOVES the ring and Allee told me it was everything she ever could have imagined. Thanks for helping me through all of this and I will strongly recommend you guys to friends going forward. Thank you. I’ve attached some photos — our friend Natalie hid in the bushes down below the back of the monument.
Lauren and Casey
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!

Stefania and Derek
My fiancé, Stefania, has always been a fan of bad romantic comedies. From How to Lose a Guy in 27 Dresses to She’s All That Thing You Do, so long as boy falls for girl, boy loses girl, boy publicly professes love for girl in an airport… Stef will watch any of them. Back in 2011, while watching one of those utterly forgettable romantic comedies, Stef spotted an engagement ring so perfect it made her pause the movie, drop her popcorn, and actually get off the couch. After a quick Google search, we found out we weren’t the only ones looking for that ring (it was the very first result when typing “The ring from The…” in the search field), and the general internet consensus was the beautiful ring had been designed by none other than Jean Dousset.
After several helpful email exchanges with Angela, three Eva-obsessed years, and a three thousand mile move from Boston to Los Angeles that put us just two miles from Jean’s showroom, Stef finally got the ring of her romantic comedy dreams. Thank you, Jean, for creating a ring worthy of the movies and for making this experience so special. Stef has actually had strangers stop her in stores to admire and drool over the ring! It’s simply a work of art and we couldn’t be happier!
Thanks once again!

Clayton and Haley
Jean Dousset worked inside our budget and desires to help me create the perfect ring for my best friend in the entire world. I told Jean we had a Hawaii trip planned and he worked extra hard to finish the ring beforehand. Haley and I hiked to the top of a mountain in Hawaii called Stairway to Heaven. As the sun was rising, I got down on one knee and opened the leather ring box revealing her dream ring. An onlooker captured the moment that changed our lives forever. The ring is incredibly perfect for her, then Jean named it the ‘Haley’! Jean Dousset will be our jeweler for the rest of our lives, we can’t thank him and his team enough.

Alicia and Chuck
I don’t even know how to begin saying how much I LOVE it!!! As Chuck will confirm, I’ve been a total nutcase the past few weeks dying with anticipation and excitement…..so having him surprise me with the ring today was complete and utter joy (:
Choosing to have the ring custom made was a double edged sword for me, on one hand I had to fret on picking one out AND wait for its arrival….yet it did allow us to experience the special moment of an engagement twice! It actually worked out to where both times he asked we’ve been in the Bahamas (our home away from home!), and both times I was completely caught off guard and surprised! Of course both moments were special because Chuck asked me to be his wife….but receiving my one of a kind, spectacular ring today is certainly one I will cherish forever!
That being said, I want you and your team to know how special you’ve made this process for Chuck and I. We both wanted a unique and custom experience in choosing my ring, and working with you was exactly what we desired and more! The diamond itself is perfect in my eyes, and the setting which holds it is the exact compliment that it deserves. Bravo team, bravo (:
Thank you for working with Chuck (who jumped into this not knowing a thing about jewelry) and making him feel comfortable investing what he did for my ring. I couldn’t be happier with the entire experience you’ve provided to us both, and I’m thankful from the bottom of my heart for the symbol of love that is now at home on my finger! Well until next time my friends (somewhere around May 2016 for some wedding bands!), take care and keep spreading the love!!!

Morgan and Lynn
First of all we have to brag on how AWESOME the service and people are at Jean Dousset. Everything was so smooth and Angela was so easy to work with. Lynn planned out the most perfect proposal for me. We were snow skiing in Breckenridge, Colorado. Lynn surprised me by flying my Mom, Aunt, and three best friends to Colorado from Texas for the proposal. I skied down the mountain and was greeted with two banners. One read, “Morgan Leigh Thomas” and the other “Will you marry me?”. I was completely shocked and over the moon happy. Not to mention I had the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen in my life on my hand! I could not have imagined a more perfect ring. We want to thank you all so much for everything you did to help make this time in our lives so special!

My fiancé and I had a spectacular experience working with Jean and his team. From our first meeting to receiving the beautifully packaged ring, we truly felt that we were in expert and professional hands. Jean’s fine touch on his designs is what initially drew us to him, and was complemented by his attention to detail, listening to our desires, and creating a gorgeous final product. I receive compliments on my ring all the time, and am constantly told by friends and family that know me well that it “truly suits me”. We feel we received a fantastic product and customer service experience at Jean Dousset.
Patrick and Meghan
Thank you all!!
Meghan loves her ring and has had nonstop compliments. It was a total surprise until she heard the country artist singing a Lee Brice song at the top of the steps overlooking the city. About 30 of our friends were waiting on the side of the building, so we then celebrated at the overlook for the next hour before going to a club party.
By the way the LED light on the box was perfect at sunset!!
Thank you Jean and your team for helping make this so perfect for us.

Thank you so much Jean Dousset! When I saw your posts I thought in my head, ‘ohh I wish this was for me!!’ Lol I never thought in a million years that it was!! I was completely blown away by Grand’s proposal & planning & your beautiful creation was the icing on the cake!! You two did awesome planning & making my ring! I love it!!

I would like to thank Jean Dousset and his team for creating the perfect custom engagement ring for my fiancé, Meera. Being a complete amateur to the whole process, I didn’t know what I was looking for or what to expect. Jean and his team did a great job of making the entire ring buying experience go as smoothly as possible. He kept me informed and updated from start to finish. He even accommodated to my unpredictable work schedule and sent me high quality photos and videos to help me pick out the perfect yellow diamond for Meera. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and my fiancé couldn’t be more in love with her ring! Thank you again!
Michael and Debbie
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.
Susie and Ian
His designs are absolutely stunning and one of a kind, but it’s the service and his genuine care of his clients that makes him stand out above all other designers.
My fiancé and I talked about engagement rings a couple times in the past and I’ve mentioned that a Jean Dousset design would be my dream ring. I guess he paid attention! We planned a trip to Taiwan for my brother’s wedding and following that a trip directly to Bali. My fiancé worked with both Jean and Angela and created a beautiful engagement ring for me. Even on a tight schedule, Jean and Angela made it happen. Not to mention they respected the budget my fiance gave them and answered all his questions. They walked him through the entire ring creation process. On Sept. 11, 2014 my now fiance proposed to me with this gorgeous Jean Dousset engagement ring. It brought me to tears. It’s more beautiful than I could ever imagine. When we got back, I got to meet both Jean and Angela. Let’s just say… the nicest people there could be! We will be going back for our wedding rings for sure!

Lillian and I are very happy to share with you that we are engaged! Lillian absolutely loves the EVA Round Cushion! It sparkles so radiantly on her finger and I can’t stop looking at it (she had to hide her hand so I would stop looking).

Jeannette and Maxwell
Working with Jean and his team was an absolute pleasure. Since Jean does not carry inventory there are no diamonds being pushed for sale, and we absolutely loved that. Every part of the experience is truly customized for each client. We never felt more taken care of and listened to. From the initial consultation, to diamond selection, to ring design, we felt we were his only clients. The ring turned out absolutely gorgeous. Words alone don’t do it justice. It must be seen. The Jeannette ring is flawless in every way. Tremendous “Thank You” to Jean and his team.
Courtney and Darek
Courtney and Darek
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 that I 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!
UPDATE: She said Yes and absolutely adores the ring! Courtney said she couldn’t have done better if she designed it herself, and is totally impressed with Jean’s history and business mission. She loved the ring so much she hated parting with it temporarily for re-sizing.

We had an incredible ring shopping experience with Jean. We had searched high and low (went to over 40 jewelers!) in search of the perfect, exquisite and delicate ring, and we found that at Jean Dousset. We found Jean’s rings to be unparalleled in their quality and craftsmanship, and most importantly, we were amazed at the service and care we received. Jean and his team were personally engaged in every step of the process, and took time to get to know us as a couple. He was incredibly detail oriented, and always transparent – a rare quality in the jewelry business. We never doubted that Jean was making the best choices on our behalf. We loved our experience, and more importantly, we found our dream ring, and we could not have imagined going through this process with any other jeweler.

Anikah and Mark
The ring is breathtaking. I don’t think either of us could have anticipated how happy we would be. It is elegant, classic, and exactly what we wanted. The diamond looks amazing (as do the side stones). We have used words like “perfect” and “spectacular” to describe the ring, but that doesn’t really do it justice. Basically, you took everything we said to heart and created a ring that represents us to a T. It embodies the dream of our marriage. Thank you so much, Jean. You are a master!
With much love,
Anikah and Mark

Just wanted you to know that Crystal said Yes!!! We got engaged two weeks ago on April 29th during our trip to Turks and Caicos. It was the most amazing experience for both of us. I chartered a private sail boat and after a day of sailing, snorkeling and spending time on a private beach I asked Crystal to marry me while sailing into the sunset. I even managed to have the captain capture photos of the entire moment. Once the reality of the moment set in Crystal couldn’t take her eyes off her ring.
I wanted to express to you how much I appreciate your support through this very important decision. I was definitely nervous about making such a large purchase site unseen. After my first phone conversation with Jean he put my initial concerns at ease. I took comfort in knowing that during the entire process Jean was only a phone call away to answer my many questions. Jean has a way of getting to know and understand his customers desires. In my eyes, this was key to the entire process . The end result was the most Stunning engagement ring I could of hoped for. The design, quality, and craftsmanship are impeccable! Crystal and I couldn’t be happier with this timeless piece that will serve as an everlasting memory throughout our marriage. For those looking, we would highly recommend a Jean Dousset engagement ring.
Blake and Julie
Wanted to let you know the weekend went very well and Julie absolutely loves the ring! She of course said yes and like a classic German woman, she’s already planning for the wedding 🙂 Thanks you very much as we both love it – Julie wants to sleep with it!

Greetings, my friends!
Good news, my girlfriend of 10 years said, “Yes,” on December 28th at the Beauty and the Beast Castle in Disney World.
Of course she loved the ring, and the LED light in the box made the ring look so beautiful when I surprised her at Disney World. We had an engagement party in March on our official 10 year dating anniversary at a steakhouse called Wildfire.
We showed off the ring at the engagement party and everyone loved it. Melissa always receives compliments all the time at work and even at the checkout lane in stores. Thank you for making her such a beautiful ring!

Dear Team Jean Dousset,
I just opened the ring box…I am truly stunned and speechless. It is more magnificent and spectacular than I good have imagined!!! My heart races as I type this email from the joy and anticipation I feel! Amanda is sure to hit the roof or potentially lose consciousness (as I feared I might) when I propose. I cannot wait to share that moment with you once it happens.
There are more words that deserve to be said, surely. But for the sake of a short message and a quick notification, I would like to reiterate my gratitude to you all for making this possible. Thank you Jean for your kind hand and expert aesthetic eye in assisting me throughout the diamond selection process. Thank you Angela for your always kind emails and for flawlessly coordinating the delivery logistics. Thank you all.
This has been an experience I shall not soon forget and most definitely always remember! On to the proposal!

Dear Jean and Company,
Thank you! I cannot even being to describe the utter beauty that is my engagement ring. Sebastian has shared with me some of the details surrounding the creation of the design, your conversations, and the outpouring of support you and your colleagues provided to him throughout the process. To say I am grateful is such an understatement. You have been part of a historical moment in our lives that is punctuated by boundless joy. I cannot stop staring at my finger and am truthfully still in disbelief that a piece of jewelry so gorgeous exists. It has not even been a full 24 hours and I have already been stopped in the street and provided with numerous compliments. Your artistry is appreciated and your kindness invaluable.
Everyone should know about the magnificence that is Jean Dousset.
With our hearts,
Amanda and Sebastian
Zory and Chris
Jean was amazing. I searched up and down the East coast, taking a trip to Manhattan with no success. With time running out, I was referred to Jean. After speaking with him on the phone, I booked a ticket to LA the following weekend. Personable and professional, Jean offered me several diamond options and ring configurations. Unlike other jewelers who attempt to coax customers into buying a specific diamond, Jean was objective, allowed me to view several diamonds without identifying the differences. This offered me the opportunity to choose the one I deemed more aesthetically pleasing, without delving into the minutia of comparable diamonds. Once the diamond was chosen, Jean and Angela sent details and delivered on a tight deadline. I received the ring in perfect condition the day prior to my international flight. Of course, the most important part was my fiancee’s reaction. She loved the diamond and ring design and of course, said yes! Jean made the whole experience enjoyable. I just wish I found him earlier!

Ronni and Kristen
Thank you so much from New Zealand!
When I look down at my hand, I have a feeling of happiness I have never ever felt before. This is honestly the happiness time in our lives and I couldn’t be more overjoyed with the ring my now fiancé Ronni and Jean designed for me! It is honestly beyond my wildest dreams, plus they did it all the way from New Zealand by email! Right away Ronni was impressed with how personal and attentive Jean and his team were. He felt confident that he was in good hands even from such a distance. They kept him up to speed with every stage of the ring and they were completely understanding and patient with any concerns or questions Ronni had. We both thank you so much for everything you have done. The ring is such a beautiful symbol of our love and commitment to each other, and there is now other place in the world we will go to get our wedding bands then back to Jean Dousset Diamonds.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Jenny and Dan
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!

I am so happy with the ring you made for us. It is truly exquisite. The center stone is gorgeous–it is warm and scintillating, which is what I wanted. The entire composition with the rose gold and the pink diamond halo is extremely elegant and subtle and light and extraordinary–it’s just designed so thoughtfully. It looks and feels very special and precious.
Thank you so much for your excellent service as well, which Kirt has really praised.

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.
Robin and Willem
Everyone who knows me will agree that making quick decisions is not one of my strong suits. Needless to say, the journey to find the perfect engagement ring and designer was a lengthy as we traveled coast to coast and in between not to mention countless hours spent perusing the internet. One very late night after looking at far too many ring designs on the World Wide Web, I stumbled upon a ring that I absolutely adored and after some investigative work, thankfully I am a journalist, I discovered that the designer was Jean Dousset. I emailed him late Sunday evening and got a prompt response back from the lovely Angela the very next morning. A series of emails followed and then after a wonderful face time meeting with Jean, we wanted to meet him in person. However truth be told, we knew even before our face to face encounter with him in Los Angeles that he was the “one” we wanted to design our ring. Jean listened to all our ideas, answered our countless questions and was both thoughtful and creative in his suggestions. We never felt rushed instead he actually took time to get to know us. Although he knew we loved the original design, he wanted there to be no doubts so he created new designs to give us options. In the end, we went with the first ring we fell in love with and yes, it exceeded all our expectations. It is elegant, unique, sparkles brilliantly and simply put is breathtakingly beautiful. I am constantly staring at it as if my fiancé slipped it on my finger just yesterday. In addition to his stunning designs, Jean and his team have the most remarkable customer service I have ever encountered. They always made us feel as if we were top priority and that making our ring incredibly special was as important to them as it was to us. Thank you Jean and all the fabulous people who work with you for making this ring and the experience one we will always cherish and most certainly always remember.

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.
Ryan and Liesl
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.
Paul and Miho
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.
Paul and Miho
Andy and Connie
Everyone will tell you about the 4Cs, but no one will tell you about the “other 2 Cs”….Craftsmanship and Care.
I met with Jean to discuss budget and expectations. Like most men I’m sure, I really didn’t know what to expect. I’d never proposed to anyone (let alone shopped for an engagement ring) ever before. Like a deer in headlights, Jean and his staff walked me through the process but they didn’t do just that.
Jean encouraged me to talk with other jewelers. To see what was out there and get a lay of the land, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. It became almost immediately apparent to me that there truly was NO ONE that had the Craftsmanship a Jean Dousset engagement ring has and there was NO ONE that took the time to get me ready for the big proposal day more than Jean.
Jean’s quality is superb. Every jeweler I talked to (all of which were referred to me by friends) were standup people. They each had their plus’s and minus’s, but every time I tried to explain what I was looking for I found myself continually pointing-out features that I could only find on the engagement ring I ultimately went with…the “Eva”.
I can’t tell you how happy I (and my now Fiance) are that I chose wisely and went with Jean. Connie beams with excitement every time she looks at her ring. The words that not only come to mind for her, but from everyone that see’s the ring are…”gorgeous”…”feminine”…”dainty”…”stunning”.
Connie couldn’t be happier and continually tells me that she could not have even dreamed of a more beautiful ring. All I can say is, Jean truly made the moment magical and I cannot thank him enough for setting the stage on a lifetime of happiness.

Aaron and Brittney
I wanted to sincerely thank you for the one of a kind work of art you created for my fiancé Brittney.
You literally scoured the globe to find the perfect diamond from only three that were available in the entire global market in the cut, carat weight, clarity and color I was looking for.
Eventually finding a colorless 6 carat princess cut diamond in Israel (of all places) is a testament to how far you will go to for your clients. The diamond is literally breathtaking and I would never have found it but for your persistence and follow through.
Everything from your tireless search for the perfect diamond, to the intricate custom design of the basket, to the selection of the “hearts and arrows” colorless melee on the side of the ring – you were so meticulous and uncompromising in making Brittney’s ring a one of a kind showpiece that is truly remarkable.
You displayed incredible patience with my endless questions and requests. I really felt like we were “in it together” to create the best ring possible.
Brittney’s engagement ring turns heads and creates a “wow” everywhere we go. It even turns the heads of the staff when we shop at Cartier – and you made it for a much, much better price of a comparable ring at that store!
Buying an engagement ring can be a daunting process. However, if you want someone who is the best of the best to collaborate with on one of the most important purchases of your life – regardless of whether your budget is $10,000 or $500,000 – I couldn’t recommend you any more highly.
Thank you so much Jean!

I just want to start by saying, we probably aren’t your typical Jean Dousset customers. We aren’t newly engaged or newlyweds, but a couple who have been happily married for 37 wonderful years.
On our 30th anniversary, my wonderful husband presented me with a gorgeous Asscher cut diamond wedding set. I really love the stone, but the setting didn’t really have the “wow” factor that I had always dreamed of. While doing a web search for the perfect setting, I happened upon Jean Dousset’s web site and there it was…the most gorgeous setting for my Asscher diamond…the Eva Milgrain! Just out of curiosity, I went ahead inquired about the setting and whether my diamond would be the right fit. Almost immediately I received a positive response and was thrilled at the possibilities! I made the call to Jean and his wonderful associate, Angela began to set things in motion.
First, Angela took the time to talk to both my husband and me and listen to what I wanted in a setting. I already had a beautiful eternity band that I wanted to match to the new setting. That didn’t pose any problems with Jean! In fact, he suggested the new band be a little wider with stones to match my existing band.
During the process of creating my new setting, I received email updates as well as photos of how the setting was progressing. The customer service we had was by far the most superior of any business we have ever dealt with. Jean and Angela made us feel we were their most important clients and they continued to keep us informed during every step of the process. We really appreciate all the special treatment, including Jean’s signature diamond hidden in the setting. What a wonderful idea, and a great little touch to let us know that Jean takes great pride in his beautiful creations.
Additionally and to keep the sentimentality of my original setting, Angela suggested the possibility of re-imagining my old setting with a new gem stone. I loved the idea and asked if it was possible to set the ring with my favorite stone, Tsavorite. Angela went on the hunt and found the perfect 2 ct. oval stone with the deep grass green color I love. It was simply gorgeous!
The rings were ready very quickly and shipped along with an appraisal from an independent appraiser and jewelry cleaner all in beautiful presentation boxes. Jean and Angela took care of all the shipping and insurance details, so we didn’t have to arrange a thing. My husband received the package at work and showed all the women (to hear their oohs and aahs) before texting me photos. Needless to say, the photos were beautiful, but didn’t begin to capture just how spectacular the rings really were. I wanted the “wow” factor and I got the WOW!!! factor. They are breathtaking and I can’t stop staring at them!
We highly recommend Jean for his fantastic jewelry designs, amazing quality and workmanship and for the sincere and extremely wonderful hands on customer attention from both Jean and Angela. They truly showed us that “relationships mean everything” to them and we will always be grateful to Jean and Angela.

Jean Dousset and Angela Giorgio, along with the rest of their team, are truly spectacular. I decided to work with them after speaking with jewelers in Miami, New York and Hong Kong. Searching for an engagement ring was more difficult than I initially imagined, but Jean and Angela helped me through every step of the process. Jean created the design I envisioned and located a truly stunning diamond. My fiancée, Catherine, was speechless when I proposed. Her tears of happiness confirmed that everything was perfect. Since becoming engaged a few weeks ago, Catherine has received compliments on the ring from almost everyone she speaks with, including complete strangers. Once woman said it was the most beautiful ring she ever saw. I have and will continue to fully recommend Jean and his team to everyone that asks me whether I know a good jeweler. Jean and Angela, thank you so much!!

Every single person we have showed Eva’s ring to has said it is one of the most beautiful things they have ever seen. She and I have never been happier and we constantly gaze at the ring at how gorgeous it is. You have my eternal thanks for all that you did to help me come up with the perfect engagement ring.

The ring is STUNNING and the service was IMPECCABLE. After searching for months to find the perfect ring I came across Jean’s website – I immediately contacted him and from day one both Jean and Angela were an AMAZING team to work with. They were engaged and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. The end result was more than I could have ever dreamed for, my fiancé couldn’t be happier and we literally cannot stop starring at the ring, and neither can anyone else! It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I could not be happier with my decision to work with Jean and Angela and I would recommend them to everyone.
Matt and Nicole
Shopping for the perfect ring was initially a bad experience for me…that is until I met Jean Dousset and his team. Jean talked to me about diamonds for over an hour the day we met, but I knew after 5 minutes that I would never buy a diamond from anywhere else ever again. There is a HUGE difference between a jeweler trying to sell you a diamond and a jeweler who’s goal it is to make your engagement experience perfect. Jean is the latter, not only is he the most knowledgeable jeweler I have ever spoken to but he is also the most caring. Jean sat and listened to exactly what I wanted and then customized a ring that blew away my expectations. The ring Jean produced is absolutely stunning and I will without hesitation refer all my friends to Jean in the future. Mine and Nicole’s engagement day went perfectly all thanks to Jean and his team at Dousset Diamonds. If you’re looking for a beautiful diamond but don’t want the “car salesman” experience you must speak with Jean Dousset!!!!
Customers for life,

I came to Jean Dousset for an engagement ring and Jean is the epitome of what a jeweler should be. From the beginning he made me feel at ease and never did I feel any pressure from his end. I met with other jewelers and Jean’s professionalism, expertise, and passion surpassed the others by a mile. He understands how big of a moment this is for someone and makes certain that he provides the perfect product. My fiancee absolutely dies for her ring and I’m not going to lie…I do too. He definitely made me look like a winner…Thanks Jean! Ultimately, Jean Dousset sets a standard within the diamond industry and I 100% recommend using him. Amazing experience with an amazing end product!
Todd and Laurie
Jean Dousset made my life better. I dated Laurie for 8 years, and needed the ‘wow’ factor when I proposed. I knew she did not want a large diamond, and I wanted a sapphire stone. That was all I knew, and then I started shopping. Every other jeweler started with price and tried to sell me a ring right in their store. Jean started with getting to know me and Laurie. Keep in mind Laurie was not there, yet he took it as a personal challenge to get to know her virtually. He wanted to design her a perfect ring, and thus needed to know her style and tastes. We talked, laughed and shared the story about Laurie and Todd, and then Jean started to direct the conversation to a ring. I had some ideas, and he refined them. I went off on a tangent and he brought me back in. I thought I would spend double, and he took me to the right price. Seriously I was going to pay double, and he refused to take advantage of me. Jean taught me about gemstones, insets, craftsmanship. He shared his years of experience with jewelry, and the preference of fit and style for women. I was hoping for the process to be painless, but it was enjoyable. Then we made the perfect ring. Wow!
A deep blue 5 carat perfect sapphire inset in Jean’s amazing ring design with 100+ perfect color small diamonds. I could not believe the ring was ours, and Laurie was going to wear it forever. I remember feeling remiss that I would not get to see Jean again after picking up Laurie’s ring. Then I remembered — after I give it to Laurie we can come back and she can meet Jean and learn about the design, creation process, the stones, and the experience could continue.
So I put the ring in a hiding spot and waited to propose. Well we dated for eight years, so I was not exactly sure how to pop the question. I just knew I had an one-of-a-kind ring and everything would be OK. As nervous as I was, I could not wait for Laurie to see her ring. Then the day came, and I did it. She was blown away by the beauty of everything. The feel was something I has not factored it yet, since I did not wear it (obviously). The ring was effortless wear and created a perfect profile of comfort and beauty. For days she could not stop starring at her ring. And she gets compliments
everywhere — at least once a day someone stops her.
A few days pass and then I take Laurie to meet Jean, and her experience started from a new perspective. I watched my fiance light up as Jean explained the features and design of the ring. He is a perfectionist, which in the jewelry business can be overlooked with all the small details the customer would not know to ask. Not with Jean, he is the customer just as much as Laurie. Its his name on that ring, and for him it has to be perfect as well. He took the time to talk about every facet, and Laurie treasures the experience and information she now has.
The experience was evolutionary for me. I will only get to experience being the bachelor once, and buying the engagement ring. I am just so grateful it was with Jean.
Soon we will be back to get bands. 🙂
I also am certain I have a friend for life with Jean. We may not see each other often, but he is always going to be a part of a great memory.
And let’s not forget … He made my fiancé the most beautiful ring I have ever seen.

Amazing experience, dazzling ring, best decision ever!
When my boyfriend and I decided to get married, he knew nothing but the best and most exquisite rings would do. We also knew we wouldn’t find them in Denmark where we live.
I spent countless hours researching jewellers and ring designs: Tiffany, Cartier, Bulgari amongst others. They were very nice designs, but I felt they were missing my personal touch, and none of them drew me in where I felt “this is me”. They were, to my mind, pre-made and impersonal.
Eventually I stumbled upon Jean Dousset’s name (in association with Louis Cartier) and after reading about Jean’s philosophy and seeing his designs, I knew this was “me”. I could choose my own stones, design the rings and feel they were really mine.
I contacted Jean and we set up a Skype call from Denmark to Beverly Hills. We talked at length about our vision, design ideas, stones, the 4Cs, budget and how this could all come together. We agreed Jean would source 3 stones he felt complimented our vision of an engagement ring. My boyfriend and I got off the computer feeling 110% confident we had made the right decision.
Within a week, Angela sent videos of the 3 stones Jean had pre-selected for us and we reconnected by Skype. One of the stones was a personal favorite and a stone Jean had saved for a special occasion, but he had decided to offer it to us as he felt it was exactly what I wanted. He was SO right and I was delighted. We decided on the EVA design for the ring, accompanied by a pink diamond EVA eternity band as a wedding ring.
By this time there was less than two weeks left until the day we needed the rings. No problem … and Jean even found the time to send us preview pictures when the ring itself was made with the center stone loosely laid on top. We were kept up-to-date throughout the entire design process, it was truly amazing. I can’t imagine having done it any other way.
My boyfriend and I traveled to Los Angeles to pick up the rings as we were getting married in Las Vegas 2 days later. We met with Jean and his delightful assistant Angela, who had kept us abreast of all progress and had answered every silly question of mine. When Jean revealed the rings, I was left breathless. They were even more exquisite than I had Imagined. As we drove off in our convertible, headed to Vegas to get married , I thanked my lucky star for having met Jean Dousset. We will be back for matching earrings for our anniversary 🙂 Merci Jean.

Jim and I are from CA and recently moved to Boston. My last day in LA before I moved here I got to go to Jean’s studio and try on the Eva round cut ring and fell in love with the setting! My now-fiancé loved the cushion-cut shape and proposed in Boston Commons Public Garden and it was perfect! I was stunned by how beautiful the ring is and get so many compliments on it. Working with Jean and his team has been a dream! It was a personal experience down to a handwritten note. We are both so thrilled with the ring and like my fiancé says, “Jean is the master of pave!”

I never anticipated that finding an engagement ring would be such a difficult task. I shopped at many stores but found myself to be completely unimpressed with what was presented to me. None of the rings left a lasting impression on me and none of them seem fitting to my girlfriend (now fiancée) Melissa. I decided that I needed to do more research and came across Jean Dousset. I looked up some of his creations and was blown away! I immediately found the perfect ring that I had envisioned for Melissa and quickly contacted Jean. I can tell you from first-hand experience that you will never receive the same service elsewhere. Jean was involved in every step of the entire process and he, Angela emailed or called me on a regular basis to keep me updated. I was really impressed at how quickly the ring was completed but was even more impressed when I opened the trademark box and saw the ring for the first time. The ring surpassed all my expectations and I found myself wanting to show it to everyone I knew, especially Melissa; but I waited for the perfect moment to share it with her.
Much thanks to Angela and Jean and their team who have made finding and creating an engagement ring such a pleasant experience!

My girlfriend and I had a very specific design in mind for an engagement ring and we researched for months trying to find design that matched what we wanted. When we finally stumbled upon Jean’s website, it was love at first sight. Living in another state I was uneasy about purchasing something of so much meaning and value, especially online, however I couldn’t have made a better decision. From my first e-mail, to the first phone call where I spoke directly with Jean, I never imagined this process would be so easy and even enjoyable. I felt involved and valued as a customer. Jean went on to explain the various cuts, connections between clarity and color and helped to design the perfect ring within my budget. As a fellow hockey fan, Angela and I bonded right away. She was especially helpful and quick to answer any questions and she kept in constant communication, which was very reassuring. My new fiancé can’t stop gushing about how perfect the ring is and I can’t agree more! It is truly as unique and beautiful as my bride-to-be. Thank you so much Jean for the wonderful experience. I look forward to working with Jean again for all our future jewelry needs.
Shelby and Eric
Jean has always been my favorite designer both in his Absolute collection for HSN, and in his work with real diamonds. My husband surprised me with my ring, and I couldn’t be happier with its ability to steal my gaze every time the light hits it. Ever since I was little, thanks to Disney films with princesses, I’ve had a vision of a yellow gold solitaire ring with a captivating diamond. Its classic design allows me all the room in the world to compliment it with all of the other rings I own without clashing, so I know I’ll never take it off, and it will make us very happy to look down and see it for the rest of our days. Thank you so much for your help along the way and not leaving my husband in the dark during any of the stages, he very much appreciated how easy and fun the whole process was. Thanks so much!

The blue sapphire and diamond ring that Jean designed is absolutely stunning. I was so happy that my fiancé found Jean and when we met him, I instantly trusted he would make something gorgeous. I am a fashion designer and stylist so rather than a traditional diamond ring, I had hoped for something different, something less common. Sapphires are often used for engagement rings in Europe, but as Jean told us, he had not made one for anyone in the States yet. His enthusiasm and passion in designing our ring – KELLY, his first sapphire ring for his collection – was exciting to me as a fellow designer. I loved that he brought us both in to look at stones and let me offer a few opinions (since I might be pickier than the average girl due to my career!)… and then, I left the rest to them to work out. I did enjoy being involved just a bit, but in the end, I love that the ring’s final design was a beautiful surprise. Even months later, people are still complimenting me often on how gorgeous the ring is.
On top of the design and elegance of Jean’s collection and showroom, I really liked the attentiveness Angela provided. When I needed my ring re-sized, she was very thorough and helpful. Then when I couldn’t make it back to the showroom the night it was ready, she dropped it off to me on her way home. What great service! Top notch.

An unforgettable experience! I had been searching for a very special ring for months and from the first phone call to the delivery of my ring Jean Dousset and his team were exceptional to work with. I can’t say enough about how enjoyable they made the process, not to mention the quality of the ring Jean designed for me! I had looked at rings all across the country (I live in Indiana) before I ran into Jean’s website and fell in love with his designs. After speaking with Jean and his team I decided to fly out to California and take a look for myself. Once I was able to see the quality of his rings in person, I was beyond impressed. I had looked at rings in Chicago, Orlando, Indianapolis, and even San Francisco, but the quality of the diamonds that Jean showed me were unlike anything I had seen before. And this includes top names like Cartier, Hearts on Fire, and Tiffany. Better yet, Jean was able to design my dream ring for a 1/3 of the budget I originally gave him! Now that my fiancée has the ring she can’t stop smiling and staring at it. The compliments are endless, as just the other night all her girlfriends were begging her to let them try on the ring! Needless to say, we couldn’t be happier. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I must say there is a new standard when it comes to buying the perfect diamond engagement ring! Being from Florida, I was sceptical buying from out of state and not being able to view the diamond in person. I noticed the VICTORIA setting in my research and figured it would be way out of my price range. I decided to give Dousset Diamonds a call. I talked to Angela and explained what I was looking for and my personal budget. She immediately had Jean call me personally and narrow down the specifics. After numerous diamond consultations and pictures sent, we finally narrowed down the PERFECT diamond to match the beautiful VICTORIA setting. He even started sending me video of the diamonds in natural light! When talking to Jean about the diamonds, I became very calm and had the confidence I thought I would never have being so far away! I noticed right away he truly cared about making this experience exciting and absolute. He explained to me how to maximize my budget on a diamond to receive the best bang for my buck which became awesome advice. I could go on about this experience, but a couple words will sum it up. Absolutely Perfect!! I even noticed him from time to time posting photos and videos on his Facebook of the diamond I bought! Thank You SO much Jean and your team for making this once in a lifetime experience and very special moment in my lifetime. The quality and attention to detail of your designs are unmatched and I consider myself lucky to have such a beautiful engagement ring for my fiancee.

When my fiancee and I started searching for an engagement ring, we did not know anything about the process, and we especially did not know how to spot a quality stone. We didn’t know what aspects of the ring to sacrifice to ensure the quality would meet our wishes. Jean changed all of that in just a few phone calls. He was very knowledgeable and explained to us very clearly how the diamond selection process works, and really helped us determine what we wanted for ourselves from the ring. He was always available for us (even on weekends!) to answer any questions we had. Furthermore, Angela was ALSO incredibly helpful and available for us at a moment’s notice. Neither of them were ever pushy with us, and they always made suggestions to us with our best interests in mind. We we were awestruck at this level of customer service, and how they were really able to go above and beyond to please us. In the end, we went with a gorgeous Asscher cut on the Eva Milgrain setting. It was exactly what my fiancee envisioned, and she could not be happier with it. And myself, I couldn’t be happier with how the whole process played out. I always felt I was in good hands, and I am confident that we will be going back to Jean Dousset for our wedding bands.
Levi and Amy Marie
Thank you all so much for everything you did for my fiance and I in the days leading up to our engagement. Without the flexibility of you and your staff none of this beautiful story could have taken place. From negotiating the price up through the delivery, the experience was nothing short of exceptional! The ring is absolutely stunning and ended up being the ring of Amy’s dreams. Every girl dreams of the engagement day for all of their lives, and I could not have fulfilled her dreams without the perfect ‘Riviera’ setting!

Gentlemen, if you are looking to leave your love speechless you have found the right sight. My fiancé was absolutely astounded when I presented this ring, it was a total surprise.
Jean and his team made this an unforgettable experience. Purchasing an engagement ring is one, if not the most important purchases you will ever make. Houses and cars come and go but your engagement ring is forever. I was a bit skeptical ordering a ring on-line.
Making this purchase without physically being able to hold and see the ring was a difficult thought at first. After discussing what I was looking for with Jean my mind was put to ease. I informed Jean of my knowledge on diamonds and he clarified some misconceptions I had. After we agreed upon a diamond that Jean had selected the production phase began.
This is where I experienced customer service second to none. Angela is an absolute delight. You are treated like a friend rather than a customer. Every question or concern I had was addressed ASAP without hesitation.
To sum up this experience in one word is impossible. I’ll I can say is if you are looking for a unique product with unmatched customer service your look is over.
Thanks for Everything Jean and Angela! If you’re ever in Newfoundland look Brittany and Myself up.

After searching high and low for the “the one”… we FINALLY found it in Jean Dousset’s GORGEOUS selection of engagement rings. Jean and his team are AMAZING to work with and make the entire process as seamless and stress free as possible. I have never met a more genuine set of individuals who were as excited to hear about our story, as they were to find us our perfect ring. Per our request, they were delighted to meet with us on multiple occasions, one on one to answer our many questions, which even included a complete run down of how to pick out the perfect diamond. I am in awe of how beautiful and flawless my engagement ring is. Through his jewelry, Jean truly has embodied the beauty a man tries to capture in the ultimate token of love. Each time I look down at this ring, I can’t help but smile, it’s all that I’ve ever envisioned in an engagement ring. With Jean and Angela’s help, My Fiance has made this GORGEOUS ring mean so much more to me than just a piece of jewelry. I will always look at it and remember that special moment when my fiancé got down on one knee in a Romantic Gondola ride in Venice, Italy, asking me the most important question of both of our lives. Thank you Jean and Angela for being a part of our new chapter together. <3 Jennifer and Justin.

It was a real joy getting to work with Jean Dousset. I was initially a bit intimidated about trying to find the right engagement ring, but after a friend recommended Jean, all my concerns quickly dissolved. He showed incredible care and attention in trying to craft the perfect ring, and the process actually ended up being a lot of fun. The ring he made is a real work of art, and my girlfriend – now my fiancée – Danielle was completely awe-struck when she first saw it. It’s a unique piece of jewelry that was specifically tailored to her taste. The whole experience was perfect. I can’t recommend Jean enough, he will be our jeweler forever!

Brian and Jordana
Brian and I headed out on a photo shoot trip to Death Valley. I knew we were going to shoot not only fashion that evening but also a wedding scene of which the photographer had said she would like to use Brian in some of the shots for. How fun I thought! We shot 2 looks and moved on to the wedding look. As I was sitting on the dunes with Brian holding me and, yes, kneeling down, he took from his pocket my perfect ring which went hand in hand with his perfect proposal. He had the ring on my finger before I fully understood what was happening. All of a sudden, I heard champagne popping in the background and came to find out that Brian had everyone on the shoot in kahoots with his plan and that the whole thing had been photographed and is now a slide show with music.
We had an incredible experience buying our exceptional ring from Jean and his team. Every question, no matter how mundane, was answered enthusiastically and authentically. He took our budget, came in under it and delivered a ring that was beyond our expectation for the price (it was in fact about 40% what we’d have found at larger stores, for even more value). Jean and Angela took great care in providing personal customer service and keeping us apprised at every step along the way. As our moment approached, he was discreet, allowing me to make popping the question a complete surprise to my fiancée Jordana. And, most importantly, the ring is the ring Jordana dreamed of and brings a smile to her face every day. Thank you Jean Dousset and team!

After over a month of going from store to store and city to city without finding the ring that I was looking for, my mother offered Jean as an alternative. She had seen me struggle going to jewelers in Boston, New York, and D.C, all including locations that were recommended by family and friends, so she started to search a little herself as well. After one conversation, Jean had won her over. I was hesitant about buying a ring without seeing it in person, but sure enough he eased all my worries over multiple conversations.
I could just tell how incredibly passionate he was. Not just about making a perfect ring, but ensuring it was a ring made with Julie in mind. Since the existing designs were not exactly what I was looking for, Jean took a fresh stab at a “tried and true” design to create something new and beautiful. The ring is amazing, and Julie couldn’t be happier. All the time Jean took talking with me about Julie and her wishes really paid off. She gets endless compliments and the ring truly is hers. She smiles and blushes every time she talks about it or when I catch her admiring it.
I couldn’t speak more highly of my experience with Jean and have already referred his work to friends of mine that were going through the same struggles I was. For what was the biggest moment of my life, I was very happy to have the confidence that the ring would do the talking if I couldn’t.

I absolutely LOVE my ring, It is exactly what I had envisioned! Even though I’ve had it for a few weeks now, I can’t stop staring at it! The ring isn’t even the best part though, working with Jean and his team was an absolute pleasure. Jean made us feel 100% comfortable throughout the whole process, and really took the time to get to know us. He asked about our engagement, and was truly excited for us! He even posted a few of our engagement pictures on his facebook page! Seth and I find ourselves talking about Jean and his team like they’re long time friends of ours! We even got an email from them when the earthquake hit Japan, because they knew we were traveling there for vacation. I couldn’t believe their kindness and thoughtfulness. I would recommend Jean’s work to anyone that’s looking for a beautiful ring and excellent service! – Stacey
I would also like to add how wonderful you were as well. And the time and understanding that Jean put in to making me understand what the difference in diamonds were and help me to choose the best one that Stacey would love! And although Jean was right in saying she would love it, still giving me the opportunity to buy the replica just to be 110% sure. – Seth

Excellent service and comfort! This is how I would describe my experience working with Jean Dousset Diamonds in helping me find the right engagement ring for the perfect girl. I was searching for engagement rings, had heard and read about Jean Dousset Diamonds, and figured I would give them a look. I walked in not knowing much about diamonds, let alone the process of buying one, but at our first appointment Jean and his staff made me feel comfortable and not in a rush to buy. Jean actually encouraged me to shop around and compare styles and prices to see what else I may like. Jean had me look at various diamonds in the style I was set on and he was focused on finding one that matched up to his standards. He walked me through the process and made sure I understood where I could best maximize the budget that I gave him that would eventually produce an incredible ring. His assistant Angela was in constant contact with me and was able to answer any of my many questions. I never thought this could be such a fun and smooth process. My Fiancé Bonnie is so excited with the ring and she and I could not stop looking at it after I had proposed at a winery in Napa. I will gladly recommend Jean and his staff if you are looking for experienced professionals, quality service and beautiful custom-made engagement rings. Thank you Jean and to your staff for your service and help in making a beautiful ring that will look amazing today and everyday.
-Happy engaged couple

When I started searching for rings I looked online and visited several local stores. I was drawn to Jean’s website and the thought of being able to create a unique one of a kind ring so I sent him an email which he responded back to immediately! Yes, he sent me a personal email!
I was nervous when I started ring shopping. I have a tendency to be “dazzled” and “over-sold”. It’s not that I’m an idiot, exactly… it’s just that I didn’t know that much about diamonds. I’d done the obligatory “4 Cs” research… but didn’t really understand how each contributed to the value of the stone. Jean took the time to explain to me, in detail, what the 4 Cs were and which ones were the most important and why.
It did not take long for me to decide to work with Jean… and after seeing the reaction to my fiancés ring, I am continually reminded that I made the right decision. Heidi’s ring is a custom-made piece of art and is nothing short of stunning. She is complimented on it constantly and has even been stopped by strangers wanting to admire it.
When I started working with Jean, I was not only surprised, but delighted with top-notch customer service. During the buying process, I sent Jean a hundred emails, each with at least ten questions. Each email was answered promptly with enough detail to be helpful, but not so much as to be confusing.
I was also really impressed with Jean’s integrity. He asked for my budget and stayed within it. I was never pressured to spend more.
While education, customer service, and integrity were important factors in my decision to work with Jean, the deciding factor was the ring. I was buying a ring for the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. She is one-in-a-million, and I didn’t want her to have the same ring that everyone else had. I didn’t want to walk into a store and buy the same stock-setting that a hundred other people had purchased… I wanted it to be unique. And it was.
Jean hand-selects all of his diamonds. After the diamond selection is complete, his workshop in Beverly Hills hand-makes every setting. Everything about the ring was custom… from the metal work to the hand-set micro-pave… nobody will ever have the same ring.
The ring truly is a piece of art Heidi and I will treasure for the rest of our lives. I cannot recommend Jean highly enough! If you are looking to give a one-of-a-kind gift to someone special in your life, Jean Dousset is the only choice.

I wasn’t going to be satisfied by an off the shelf engagement ring so I turned to Dousset Diamonds. When I first met Jean in his Beverly Hills office, I immediately knew I made the right decision. There were not hundreds of pre-made rings and settings, instead just Jean on the other side of his desk. He immediately made me feel comfortable, his approach, knowledge, talent – all top notch. Over the course of an hour or so we designed a gorgeous engagement ring, a custom variation on his EVA series. I was so enthused by his passion; he was dead set on making sure this ring was going to be perfect for my fiancé Marisa. And boy did he deliver. I’m amazed at how many compliments we get, everyday, everywhere. Marisa’s ring is absolutely gorgeous!

First, let me begin by saying that I think the beauty and craftsmanship of Jean’s settings speak for themselves, but its the keen focus on customer service that sets Jean Dousset apart from any jeweler that you’ll probably “engage” with during your hunt for that perfect ring for your fiancee.
I can’t thank Jean and his team enough for all their help and being such trusted advisors during this important process. I can’t put into words how much they went above and beyond to deliver my ring and all the associated services (appraisal and resizing) to every date I needed them completed. And of course the Eva ring is superb and a work of art: all of my fiancee’s friends marvel at it and most importantly, she adores it and that’s all that matters!
From the very first conversation you have with Jean to the last handshake you probably will have in thanking him in person, you’ll find out, just as I did, how priceless his service and his rings truly are.

Professional. Respectable. Brilliant. Josh and Alexandra
These are some words that describe Jean and Angela. I am so glad I found them. Together we designed the most beautiful ring, for the most beautiful person. They were caring and respectful throughout the whole process. They were truly interested in our lives (mine and my fiancée). They wanted to see pictures of us, would call for updates, and were always available to talk about progress and questions. Honestly, it was such a great experience, and the end result was so amazing. Great job guys!!
And all this with me being on the opposite coast!!

It was a pleasure working with Jean on finding the perfect engagement ring for my fiancé. As a guy I knew nothing about diamonds going into the process. However, Jean was truly accommodating as we screened diamonds together – never rushing me but rather ensuring that I was totally comfortable with the diamond that would become the one! Jean was more than helpful in answering my hundreds of questions,I wanted to make sure it was perfect!, and I cannot be happier with the diamond we selected together. The ring is absolutely stunning and my fiancé gets compliments on it all the time. Working with Jean was as smooth a process as I could have imagined and an overall exciting experience! – Ryan
I absolutely love the ring. The diamond is amazing and the setting just accentuates the sparkle. The one thing people keep telling me is how unique and different it is. I’ve seen plenty of settings with the small diamonds around the stone and band but this is more elegant. I was initially attracted to it when I saw it in an magazine after Amy Adams got engaged. Ha, sounds silly but I just loved it ever since. I was so excited that Ryan picked up on the hints and worked with Jean to create my dream ring. He told me how personal the experience was working with Jean and I think that made the entire proposal extra special for both of us. – Stephanie

I believe what impressed us most about dealing with Jean Dousset is how he really listens to what the customer is looking for, and will search far and wide to find the best value in the budget presented. Our priority was to get the best diamond possible while keeping the ring setting quite simple. My wife chose the Nina setting in 18k pink gold which allowed us to pursue a larger single diamond of superb quality, cut and clarity. Since Jean’s standards are very exacting, he will only show diamonds from certain cutters which meet his precise specifications. He found us a beautiful round cut stone of incredible cut and brilliance which now sits prominently atop the rose gold setting. We couldn’t be happier with the results and still staring at the ring. After 34 years of marriage, this wasn’t our first diamond but is definitely our most treasured one. Thanks again to Angela for responding to all our questions and arranging for shipping and appraisal. Everything was flawless! What a wonderful experience Jean, maybe we’ll do this again next year!

Jean really came to the rescue for me. Prior to meeting Jean, I had a great deal of trouble figuring out what style/design of ring was best for me. Jean did a great job listening to my dilemma and helped put me at ease. He and his colleague Angela provided incredible customer service and always made me feel like I was their only customer. I couldn’t have asked for a more special experience. Because of Jean’s help, I am now the proud recipient of a round-cut Eva engagement ring. It is everything I had hoped for. I feel so lucky to have found Jean and highly recommend him!

When I found Jean, I had already searched for many months to find someone to create the perfect rings for me. I had very specific ideas in mind for how I envisioned my engagement ring and band to be designed, and because they were very specific ideas, I was having a hard time locating a jeweler or store who could provide me with exactly what I was looking for. I was getting discouraged. However, the wedding was quickly approaching, so I had to continue my search.
Finally one day, I was looking up celebrity engagement rings because my thought was that celebrities get custom rings made all the time. I came across Jean’s name on a feature about Eva Longoria. I decided to look him up online. I was so excited to find that his website was so well organized and easy to navigate! I took a chance and clicked on the “ask a question link” to see if Jean would be willing to work with me. To be completely honest, I didn’t think that I would get a response. Within a few hours, Jean sent me a response asking me exactly what I was looking for. I told him, and he told me that he would make my vision come true! I was so happy! From that point forward, I experienced amazing customer service from Jean and his team, including personal calls and emails. Since I don’t live in the Los Angeles area, Angela (who is exceptional by the way) always took care of ensuring that the rings delivered securely back and forth without and problems.
I have never worked with people who have paid so much attention to the customer’s request. The customer service is exceptional. I am so happy with both my engagement ring and wedding band. I have received multiple compliments from other people. I highly recommend Jean Dousset Diamonds to anyone who is in the market for a beautiful, well-made engagement ring.

I was looking for a rather intricate pave setting for an engagement ring and happened upon Jean’s website. I knew the craftsmanship of the setting would make or break this ring so I was looking for a jeweler with experience crafting handmade jewelry and Jean fit the bill. While the high quality of his work is what drew me to his business, it was Jean’s attention to communication and customer service that made the decision to do business with him so easy. Jean, along with his assistant Angela, blew my expectations out of the water. Responses to inquiries were always made in a timely manner and Jean really reached out and worked with me on a daily basis to help create a masterpiece of an engagement ring. Jean is not only a talented jeweler, he is an intelligent businessman who understands the importance of communication, accountability and building lasting customer relationships. Doing business with Jean was a pleasure and the quality of the ring we created exceeded my expectations as well as my fiancées wildest dreams. She absolutely loves the ring and many of her friends and coworkers have actually complemented me on doing such a wonderful job of selecting such a beautiful adornment. Working with Jean was a great experience and the result couldn’t have been better. I will definitely be doing business with Jean again in the future.

Being that we shopped for the ring together, it took some creativity for me to be able to surprise her, so I thought of 2 surprises for her that night. I decided to propose on the night of her birthday. I told her we were going to go on a ‘triple date’ with some of my friends. She was expecting to celebrate her birthday with her girlfriends later in the week as some of them were just getting back into town from an out of the country trip. The first surprise was arranging for her best friends who were supposedly unavailable, to attend dinner. I had a limo pick up all of her friends and mine as well, and we surprised her at home. The second surprise was the ring, which I disguised inside of an iPhone 5 case with batteries to serve as dead weight. Before opening the gift, she actually guessed it was an iphone, which she had been wanting. I went along with it as if the surprise was ruined, and sure enough, she was quite surprised when she opened the box. It was a wonderful night, and we couldn’t be happier with our experience.
Again, thanks for all of your help in creating Cecilia’s “dream” ring!

Like many people before me the thought of choosing an engagement ring became a rather daunting prospect, especially with a girlfriend like mine! I tried subtly, many times, to get an idea of the type of ring she would like and type of style but she was very difficult. Every ring she saw was either disgusting or not individual! Then randomly one day while browsing through Google images she said the words I had been waiting to hear! Beautiful! It was Jean Dousset’s RIVIERA style that finally appeased her very high expectations. I of course pretended not to notice, but immediately began emailing Angela. This experience is not like going to a jewelers and looking through a collection of rings until you find one that will do. Angela and Jean first both inquired as to Niamh’s (my fiancé) taste, style and my own preferences. They made me feel at home and were my council when it came to choosing the diamond. It is always a gamble when you deal with people on the internet, but after a lot of research I knew I was dealing with the best people I could be dealing with for bespoke jewelry.
This has been a fantastic experience and it was made very easy by Angela and Jean. I could not advise it enough to anyone. And the cherry on top is that she said YES and she loves the ring.”
I came to Jean with many ideas for the engagement ring designs after visiting different renowned jewelers. Jean carefully worked with me to refine my ideas and helped create the perfect engagement ring that we have been dreaming of. The overall experience working with Jean Dousset was fantastic. Jean is creative, patient, and a great communicator who helps clients understand jewelry designs. The customer service is also excellent where Angela will carefully manage the customer details and follow up every step of the way. I highly recommend Jean Dousset for quality jewelry that ranks among renowned jewelers but at fair prices.

I had been taking hints from my fiancée-to-be on ideas for rings she’d like, when I would propose and had not had much luck finding the right experience.
I was underwhelmed by a lot of the selection and quality at chain stores, and the “marquee” locations generally treated me with an indifference that made me feel like MY special moment wasn’t special to them.
Customer service and being treated with respect is very important to me, and when I saw the article in InStyle I knew that the “Eva” would be worth looking into. I am someone who takes his due diligence seriously, and from my first email to Jean I was impressed by their responsiveness, customer service, and professionalism.
I found their replica idea to really be groundbreaking, and was stunned by how beautiful the ring looked, even though it wasnt made from real diamonds. I received it on a Thursday and had originally planned to propose over the weekend. Once I had the ring in my hand I couldnt wait and proposed that very night! She loved the ring, thought it was perfect and immediately said yes, making it one of the best nights of my life.
I knew that we would be going to LA the following week for a trip, so I had hoped to get to see Jean in person before finally buying the real thing.
Jean and his staff were gracious enough to see us and schedule a good amount of time for us to look at options that matched our taste and budget which really helped.
We were initially a bit apprehensive to purchase a ring online, but after seeing what they had ready for us we were assured of the quality, knowledge and beauty of the real “Eva.”
We didn’t know we’d walk out of our appointment with THE ring, but we did, as well as the matching “Angelina” wedding band.
It was amazing to see my fiancée light up like she did the very moment I proposed to her, I was fortunate to get that reaction twice.
The whole experience was fantastic, from start to finish, and we knew the moment the ring was on her finger that we made the right choice. All of her friends are jealous of how beautiful the ring is, and every time we look at a different ring somewhere she says, “Mine’s way better!” I don’t think you can ask for anything more than that.

I am thrilled! I truly appreciate everything you did to guide me through the process. Your followup, attention to detail and desire for perfection are the reason the ring is so fantastic! Thank you VERY much!

Looking for the perfect ring takes a great deal of time and patience. I searched high and low and came across several rings but could not seem to find “The One”. That is until I met with Jean. By far there are two things you cannot, and will not, get from any other jeweler: Product Quality and Customer Service. Jean, Angela, and their team provided first class service from the moment we met until the very last second of our departure. Jean displayed tremendous professionalism and patience as he made me feel at ease while guiding me throughout the process. His skill and devotion far exceeded my expectations on finding the perfect diamond which is a true reflection of his craft. Needless to say, through the help of Jean, Angela, and their team, I found the perfect ring for my now fiancée, Vivian. She is absolutely blown away by how magnificent the ring is and adores it with every glance. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done to make this experience so memorable. We will cherish it for the rest of our lives.

I had some bad luck with my previous engagement/wedding band settings. They were made by someone else. I was saddened that something so special to me kept falling apart, literally. Then my friend referred me to Jean. As others have commented – after a few moments on the phone with Jean, I was already feeling better about the seemingly never ending saga of my damaged rings.
Long story short, I selected one of Jean’s settings that fit my taste. Not only did it fit my taste, it was exactly what I had been looking for all along! And other jewelers said it could not be done. Something so delicate, yet sturdy. So bejeweled, yet understated. Just perfect in every way.
I have essentially turned into “Frodo” gazing at my rings throughout the day.
I am just so happy that I found Jean. I am also happy to know that in the future, when the time comes for more gifts to me, I know exactly who to call…

She said yes 🙂
The final part of the proposal was dinner at a classy restaurant.
I couldn’t have asked for a better day.. everything worked out as planned… keeping it as a little mystery.. finding parking exactly where I wanted it… that the bench would be vacant…. and the weather comfortable…
Thank you for all your help and guidance, Yuly adores the ring. She’s been waiting a long time for it and to give it to her in this way was so special to me.

More amazing than anything I could have ever imagined! After recently receiving my brilliant cut “Eva” engagement ring, I now realize I have room in my heart for two great loves – my wonderful fiancé and this awe-inspiring ring! I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful this ring is in person. From the custom setting to the diamond that was handpicked by Jean, I am 100% confident I am always wearing something completely unique and incredibly special. I had the pleasure of meeting Jean and Angela as I was shopping around for wedding bands with my fiancé. There, I was able to see first hand the time, dedication and detail that Jean and his team spend with each person on every single design. I can only say so much without seeming redundant, but I LOVE THIS RING…and the beautiful man that gave it to me!

When Melissa and I started the process of looking at rings, she found Jean Dousset from a search of “celebrity engagement rings.” She had her heart set on the “Riviera,” but I wasn’t convinced she needed that ring. I searched high and low for a comparable setting, but nothing even compared (including all the high end designers you can think of). That’s when I decided to contact Jean Dousset Diamonds and spoke to Angela who has been nothing short of an angel throughout the entire process.
I knew I wanted to choose my own diamond then have Jean Dousset set it, but I was hesitant to entrust my diamond in the hands of someone I’ve never met. She made me feel completely at ease. Jean Dousset Diamonds takes the utmost care of your diamond from door to door. Every little detail is considered in the shipping process – their own business insurance policy, the types of boxes used, complimentary overnight shipping, the days of the week that would be ideal, etc. So if you are a bit hesitant like I originally was, do not worry.
Jean Dousset Diamonds was also the only jeweler I found who offered ‘shots’ on the ring to keep the stone centered on the finger.
I live in Houston and dealt with Angela completely by e-mail and phone. She was always available to answer my questions and made the entire process so seamless. Jean and Angela go above and beyond. For example, they provide you with an independent appraisal and also have professional photos taken of your ring. I didn’t even know this was included!
I mentioned that I wanted to have the ring in time to propose in Iceland, and they made it happen. I received the ring at least a week in advance, but I was anxious about having the appraisal completed so I could insure the ring before we left on our trip. Angela understood the importance of this issue and worked diligently with the appraiser and myself to have the appraisal completed in time.
Melissa absolutely loves the ring and describes it as “perfect.” She receives compliments on it on a daily basis from complete strangers. It was a pleasure working with Angela and Jean, and I cannot have asked for a better experience. I’m so glad I went with Jean Dousset Diamonds!

When my now fiance commented on a ring in a magazine I made a mental note and researched the ring on the Internet. Living in Australia and buying a ring in the US wasn’t my first preference but after my initial contact with Jean I knew I had found the right person to create the ring for our engagement.
The customer service that I experienced from both Jean and his team was magnificent and by far outclassed any that I have experienced in Australia or in fact anywhere in the world. They were both extremely helpful and prompt in getting back to me with the large number of questions that only a first-time diamond buyer would have.
After the proposal we flew to LA to meet Jean, pick out the diamond and have the ring made. Jean guided us expertly through the process and was able to meet our time tight frames whilst in America.
Now my fiance has a beautifully crafted ring which could have only come from a true professional. We would both like to thank Jean for this experience and it will be forever in our memories.

I knew within two minutes of speaking on the phone with Jean that I was going to have him make the engagement ring for my fiancée. I had spoken with other jewelers and none of them asked me the types of questions or provided the suggestions that Jean did during our initial conversation. I really appreciated his guidance in finding the right diamond. He told me to fix my budget and then focus on the color and cut.
Jean worked tirelessly to locate the right diamond for my budget. We thought we had found the right one on paper but when Jean went to personally inspect it he determined it wasn’t good enough. He continued searching for that perfect diamond and I knew when he said he had found it that he really had.
Jean always followed up with me to let me know how things were progressing with the ring. I never had cause to doubt that the ring would not be exactly what my fiancée wanted. Also, the value that Jean provides for his rings compared to the market is unbelievable. I know for a fact that the ring he made for my fiancée would have cost at least 50% or more anywhere else. And, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is incredible. There are not many jewelers who can make such beautiful rings.
I proposed to my fiancée on a sailboat on the San Francisco Bay near the Golden Gate Bridge. I made sure to tie the ring to my belt loop so it wouldn’t fall into the water. She was completely surprised and blown away by how beautiful the ring was and how it matched perfectly what she wanted. We then went to a 2-star Michelin restaurant in Wine country to celebrate. We called Jean on the drive up to the restaurant but were unable to reach him until the following day. When we finally spoke with him his enthusiasm and excitement for us made us feel like Jean is a friend. I won’t hesitate to call on him in the future and will recommend him to anyone who is looking to purchase beautiful jewelry at a great price.

I adore my beautiful, elegant “Eva” brilliant-cut ring from Jean Dousset. It was the perfect ring for the perfect proposal.
Jean and his team were extremely informative and helpful, and I could not have asked for a better experience.
Thank you to Jean for choosing such a stunning diamond and crafting such a brilliant setting, and much thanks to Angela for all of your help.

When I called Jean Dousset Diamonds to inquire about his rings and was greeted by Angela I asked about their rings and she said “Jean Dousset is actually here. Do you want to speak with him personally?” I thought to myself “really? personally? I’m actually getting personal help from the owner of the company?” Well after that 5-minute conversation I had with Jean about diamonds, rings, and their handcrafted process. I knew this was the place where my soon-to-be fiancée will have her dreams met. Being who I am, I love finer details in things, and it seemed like so does Jean. He took the liberty of personally searching out the best cut diamonds within my price range and let me choose the diamond that I felt was right. I chose the one that I loved. We talked about the designs, and my inspiration on the ring I wanted. He also gave his non-biased professional opinion on some things then we started the process of getting it made. I felt comfortable and had no doubts that the ring would be spectacular. I am so lucky that I got to meet Jean. He worked to fit my budget, made strides to meet my deadline and honestly took every measure to make sure the ring turned out as beautiful as it did. He and his team personally kept me updated throughout the whole process.
Thanks again Jean! With your help you have made my fiancée’s dream come true!
I learned about Jean Dousset from InStyle magazine and contacted him about creating a 5-year anniversary ring using my original stone. I can’t put into words how amazing he and his team have been to work with. I wore the Eva replica while Jean perfected a design we collaborated on that would also fit with my existing wedding band. I just got my ring today from Jean and wow, it is stunning!
The entire process was extremely easy and convenient. I never had a worry that not only would my ring and stone be treated with care and attention, but that I would be thrilled with the result.
I can say without hesitation, Jean Dousset knows what he is doing and backs up his talent with outstanding customer service and a flawless end result. Thank you so much, Jean!

We just wanted to thank you for finding such a beautiful and perfect ring for me.
I’ve always wanted a Tiffany & Co. engagement ring but when I saw Jean’s design I fell in love with it right away. Since we live in Wyoming, we had no choice but to fly out to LA and meet with Jean. He was so friendly and made us feel so comfortable that I knew Jean would be the one making my engagement ring. One thing I remembered was Jean telling me I needed to trust him, I was skeptical at first but am very glad I did. Jean and his team had been so wonderful on comforting me on all my concerns that they made this process very enjoyable. After waiting for 2 weeks my ring finally arrived, it was exactly what Jean told me, “MY RING IS BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT!” I am so memorized by my ring that I catch myself looking at it all the time.
Words can’t describe how happy and glad I am that I found Jean. I can’t wait to get the matching wedding band. Jean can be sure that I will call him in the near future.
Thank you so much!
First of all, I am very fortunate to have a wonderful husband who bought me such a big gorgeous diamond ring for our anniversary. I also feel so lucky to be able to work with Jean in person to build my dream ring. I fell in love with Jean’s design the very first time I visited his website and I can’t believe I am wearing one of his masterpieces, an “Eva” Emerald Cut right now. It is a dream come true!! I also purchased the “Angelina” matching band and they look stunning together.
What I like about Jean is not only that he custom built my ring for me based on my taste and my budget, but that he used his expertise to find me a very good quality diamond. Anyone who wants to buy a good quality diamond should know that even two diamonds that have the same clarity grade have different types of inclusions that locate in different spots of the diamonds, which is why it is very crucial to have an expert like Jean to search for the perfect diamond and build the ring for you.
Jean’s prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend anyone who is thinking about buying a diamond ring to give Jean a call first.
He and his team are very sweet and professional.

I can not sing the praises of the entire team at Jean Dousset Diamonds enough!
Firstly, the customer service was the best customer service I have ever received in my life. Period. From the start of the one on one calls with Jean to specify the perfect ring and from order placement to ring delivery, it was the definition of what perfect customer service should be.
Post sale follow up and support was also exceptional as I had selected the wrong ring size and the team needed to resize both the wedding and engagement rings. This was done with the same level of customer service as the initial sale.
Secondly, the quality of the workmanship, the design of the ring and the stone itself were spectacular. Having a sister who is a jewelry designer herself, I could see the workmanship that had gone into the ring and the finish.
The time taken to choose the stone with Jean at the start and the way the whole ring was built around the stone was evident in its finish and look. Having looked at hundreds of diamonds and rings in traditional stores ranging from De beers to small independent jewelers, very very few had the sparkle and clarity of the diamond that Jean helped us choose.
We can not thank the team enough for making the perfect ring, and putting the biggest smile I have seen on my now wife’s face. Thank you Jean, Angela and the team. You will always be remembered by Salma and I.

I had been looking online for engagement rings for at least a month before I came across Jean’s site. Out of all the online jewelers that I had seen, Jean’s rings really stood out to me as being unique and different, but still classic. Finding a ring that was unique and different was very important to me…I didn’t want a ring that looked like everyone else’s. Once I found Jean, I stopped looking…I knew I wanted my ring from him. I immediately sent my fiance-to-be a link and told him the Riviera is exactly the ring I wanted!

From the beginning my personal experience with Jean was personal, professional and intimate. Selecting the perfect stone and the perfect ring can be somewhat overwhelming and Jean was extremely patient just wanting to come to the perfect selection for Jamie. I would refer and recommend Jean Dousset Diamonds to everyone that is looking for an exceptional experience and ring. Jamie still smiles from ear to ear on the remarkable beauty of Jean’s ring design and she gets rave compliments wherever we go.
An important factor in this entire process is Jean’s experience and passion, it showed and I had full and complete trust for his direction on this decision.
Thank you both from Jamie and Jeremie

When I looked to purchase a present for my wife to celebrate our anniversary, I contacted Jean Dousset who immediately came up with a few ideas that he knew would suit our tastes. The entire process, from deciding what to buy, to production and delivery, had to go extremely fast as I had left it a little late. Jean met the deadline and I know he went out of his way to do so.
The resulting pair of earrings are truly spectacular and my wife was thrilled by the present.
I know that Jean extends the same professional services to everyone and is always out to please his clients as much as possible. With the combination of his fascinating family history, professional knowledge, dedication and passion, he will quickly establish himself as one of the leaders in his field. I certainly know that I will never have to worry again of where to get a special present for my wife.

Working with Jean to create this ring was a dream come true. He knew exactly what I had in mind and when he emailed me the first renderings I was completely blown away.
The end result is a truly spectacular ring that was designed just for me. Thank you for a memorable experience from the first email all the way to delivery. You and your team are talented beyond words and I show my ring off to everyone!

I found Jean Dousset while looking at different micro pave settings on the Internet. His “Eva” setting quickly caught my attention. At first, I was a little skeptical about ordering a ring on the Internet without being able to see the diamond or the setting in person. To make it even more complicated, the diamond that I was looking for was a vintage cushion cut which is somewhat rare these days. However, the more I spoke to Jean, the more comfortable I became. He and his team were extremely patient with me and displayed excellent customer service and professionalism from the very start.
Jean found the perfect diamond and the entire ring is absolutely stunning. So to any of you who may be skeptical like I was in the beginning, go with Dousset Diamonds. You wont be disappointed!
