My fiancé, Chris, and I decided to go ring browsing but both had no experience or knowledge regarding rings. He had heard on the WKNR-ESPN 850 about a family place that was supposed to be good for first-time ring shoppers like us. When we first arrived, Josh immediately put us at ease. He was very patient with us as we asked him a bunch of questions. After we left I urged Chris to consider Bookman and Son for the actual purchase because something just felt right about them. The ring is absolutely stunning. We couldn’t be happier about our experience at Bookman & Son. Thank you!
I have to tell you, you were all spot on regarding Josh and the fine folks at Bookman & Son. Josh was patient and so kind with my girlfriend (now fianceé') when we first walked through his doors. After quick/precise and informative one-on-one meetings and emails, Josh was able to get the right diamond in the right ring for the right price. Josh and his company were exactly what I needed for this huge step in my life. Josh was informative, polite and really nice to speak with throughout this whole process.

Hey Rizz, thank you for leading me to Bookman & Son for my engagement ring. Just as many of your listeners, I didn't have any experience shopping for fine jewelry. The first time I came into the store, I met Josh and he patiently listened to my girlfriend while she expressed her ‘unique’ style. Josh gave me the opportunity to have the best of both worlds: Her giving some input on some unique ideas and then me taking a few of them to Josh to put my personal touch on it.

My husband and I could not be happier with the service and outcome of my ring! This is the best experience we've had buying jewelry-hands down. Josh is as meticulous as we are! He wouldn't settle for anything less than the perfect stone. He is also a perfectionist with great taste. I think it's fair to say he takes pride in his work and creations. Also, we never felt pressured with him. There was no sales approach-most of our time together consisted of conversations about what would make me happy. He listened to us very carefully, and I absolutely love my ring. I look at it and smile. It's a stunner! Without reservation, Bookman & Son will be our go-to, and we feel lucky to have found Josh. Seriously-the best. Can't way enough about the whole experience and outcome.

A friend recommended that I visit Bookman & Son and I am so glad that I did!!!! Josh and his team could not have been more helpful! And there was never any pressure to buy anything. They asked questions and listened to me and offered wonderful suggestions. I did make my purchase with Bookman & Son and I could not be happier! My experience was top notch! I have no hesitation in recommending Bookman & Son to anyone. Thanks for such a smooth and easy experience!

Bookman & Son Fine Jewelry exceeded my expectations! My husband had heard about them on a radio station and kept saying that we needed to visit to see about getting my 25th wedding anniversary band made there since there were such good reviews. We took the hour and 45 minute drive We visited on December 29 and they gave us an exact quote and drew a picture of the design that I wanted made. They told us it would be done in 2-3 weeks. This was over the holidays so I was a bit skeptical of the time frame. They did not disappoint! The ring is perfect and exactly what I wanted. Both Josh and his father were personable and wonderful to deal with. And they were $800 less than a local jeweler I had checked with previously had quoted and gave an exact price the day I dropped it off. Definitely worth the drive!

I heard about the great service and quality from a few different acquaintances. Although, I still planned to check into four or five different jewelers in the Cleveland and Akron areas for an engagement ring. A purchase that demands due diligence. However, upon meeting Joshua Bookman, my search for the perfect jeweler was over. He was extremely helpful in educating me on engagement rings, diamonds, white gold, etc., all before having me as client. After putting in my order, he continued to be extremely helpful and timely with his responses to my numerous inquiries. The ring was also ready within the estimated time frame, which is impressive given the impact of COVID19 on small business and the supply chain, around the time of my order. We are going back to Bookman & Son for our wedding bands and we will be recommending them to any and all friends, family, and acquaintances for their jeweler needs.

I have been looking for a little while for an engagement ring and a friend suggested I go here and gave me their email. Josh responded to me very quickly and set up a time when we could meet and talk. He didn’t pressure me at all, did everything he could to stay in my budget and didn’t try to sell me something more expensive. He took time to get to know me as a person which was really nice. Great guy! I loved my experience! I recommend to anyone looking to go here first!
