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.

I have been working with Josh and his father for over 15 years since making my first purchase. I have researched everything we have done together over time thanks to my OCD like precautions and I tell you through experience that you will not find better quality products, prices or people around. I have found Josh to be a very trust worthy and honest person that has become a close friend to not only me but my family. What Bookman brings to the table you don't find at every corner anymore, take my advice, stop in and take a look for yourself.

My husband and I purchased both my engagement ring and our wedding bands from Bookman & Son. Josh and the other staff were great throughout the whole process, going above and beyond. I needed my engagement ring resized multiple times, which was done at no additional cost and with a quick (1-2 week max) turn around time. When deciding on bands, Josh even sent a virtual video of possible changes to a wedding band I was considering. Bookman's also offers cleaning whenever needed. You won't be disappointed!

I cannot say enough about Josh and team at Bookman & Sons. I started there over a year ago, walking in clueless about what I was doing. Looking for an engagement ring, Josh and team were relaxed, pressure free, and made me feel immediately comfortable. Since the engagement ring, I have purchased two wedding bands, diamond stud earrings and our one year anniversary ring. Josh was accommodating every step, and helped me make the best decisions. When my wife had to get her ring fixed, they did it quickly, and with no added expense. Not only that, but he even called me personally on his own time to explain a question I had. The personal touch, attention to detail, and amazing selection at Bookman & Sons is by far the best in Cleveland.

Listen, you've been hearing for how long? Just go. Don't bother with any other jeweler. I had to do some smooth investigation to learn what type of diamond and band combinations my love was most interested in. Once I had a good idea of what she wanted, I went to see Josh. I told him what I was looking for, and he put together something more beautiful than I ever could have imagined on my own. I'm stoked. She's absolutely over the moon. We're getting married!! There was never any pressure, it was like to talking to an old friend. He didn't push me or try to sell me. He built the perfect ring after like 2 visits, and I had it in just a couple weeks. I can't say enough good things. Let Josh take care of ya.

I've known Josh for the better part of the last 3 years. Throughout that time, he never once pushed the envelope on buying a ring from him when I was ready to get engaged. When the time finally came, he was an absolute lifesaver. Not only did he help me pick out a ring that me fiance absolutely loved, but he did it within my budget and, honestly, with little help from me. Josh knew her personality and knew what she wanted even before she did. Unlike some other jewelry experience I've had in the past, the personal service I received from Josh and Nikki didn't stop there. Both of them were available and giving me updates on the status of my ring, even when the engagement date was moved up and they had to rush to finish the order. There is without a doubt no better jewelry experience in Northeast Ohio. Since my experience this past July, I've already sent one friend to look for a ring at Bookman and they had the same outstanding experience. Thank you Josh & Nikki for taking the stress out of the engagement ring experience so I can focus on proposing and planning a wedding. See you in a couple months to get the wedding bands!
