If there were a 6 star rating for Rick I’d give it. I have 3 Rick Antona stories. First Story: back in the spring of 2015 I was in the market for an engagement ring. I shopped at all the big name jewelers and upscale places in Houston. It was a harrowing experience and I was dismayed by the sales pressure tactics (as well as relatively unimpressed with the quality). One day I happened to notice a colleague’s beautiful diamond earrings and she told me that she’d purchased them from Rick Antona at Uptown Diamond. I called Rick and he invited me and my fiancée in for a meeting. Prior to the meeting he sent me a diamond-buying guide and gave me some candid insights. When we sat down with him, he gave my fiancée a brilliant tutorial on the things that matter when buying a diamond. He cared enough to create educated consumers and made it clear that he wants to develop long-term relationships. So I decided on the diamond and then Rick’s team was able to use some photos I provided of my fiancée’s dream ring and replicate it exactly. It is absolutely stunning. Second story: about a month ago, I realized that I hadn’t made any plans to buy the wedding band. Time just got away from me and I was very anxious about finding and buying the right band. So I called Rick and he assured me he’d be able to create whatever I wanted within a matter of weeks. Once again I gave him some pictures to work with and he delivered the perfect ring. On time and under budget. My wife loves her rings. Third Story: One of my best friends was recently in the market for an engagement ring. He and his then-girlfriend had admired the rings Rick’s team made for us, and I told him not to even think of going anywhere else – just call Rick. He did and, not surprisingly, Rick delivered the perfect ring to him. I won’t ever shop for diamonds anywhere else. The service, the quality, the experience…I’m a customer for life and urge you to check him out.
