Customer Reviews


“From the moment my husband-to-be and I walked into Oliver & Espig until our last visit several days later — after finalizing the design of our wedding rings — the extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff treated us with both dignity and respect. Everything — from our first spotting of the basic rings to the final customization — provided us with a positive, a very exciting experience. We knew we wanted our rings to be non-traditional, and both Glenn and Marcia explained all the details of the designer whose work we selected and presented us with a number of options for customization. The result was and is a unique pair of rings which identify us. Although we live on the East Coast, we would definitely return to Oliver & Espig for any special, future jewelry needs.”

“Beautiful jewelry and outstanding service! My husband and I went in just to look around, and saw a beautiful Konstantino bracelet, pendant and ring set. The owner Glenn Espig was very helpful and knowledgeable about the designer, materials and ‘history’ of the pieces. I tried them all on and just loved them, but wasn’t really in the buying mood. He also showed us the most beautiful stones called Paraibas. I had never seen such beautiful color before! Even though we didn’t buy anything, Glenn took the time to show us many beautiful items, and explained about their custom design services and you could tell he had a passion for his work. We thanked him and eventually left the store. My husband later secretly called the store from San Diego and arranged to purchase not only the 3 Konstantino pieces I had liked, but a beautiful men’s bracelet as well. Mr. Espig said he had business down in San Diego later that week, and personally delivered the pieces to my husband as a surprise for my birthday. I was very impressed and felt very important that the service had been sooo outstanding!! I will definitely return here for any of my future jewelry needs! I wish them lots of luck in their new location!”

“I was proposed to with a Kretchmer Tension-Set solitaire ring from Oliver and Espig. It was stunning, took my breath away. The engagement ring had to be made specifically to fit my finger so we went to get my finger sized and to get the ring custom-made with Oliver and Espig.

We were treated so special the whole time, like their most important customers in the world. I ended up working with their jeweler to design custom wedding bands for me and for the man I was marrying. Glenn Espig and the designer were so honest with what was and wasn’t possible during the design process as they wanted us to be happy with our rings forever. Their suggestions and recommendations were spot-on due to their numerous decades of knowledge and our rings turned out beautifully, I couldn’t have been happier.

When we went to go pick up our rings before the big day, we were surprised with a wedding gift, a lovely romantic picnic basket for 2, along with a thoughtful card.

I will remember my experience with Oliver and Espig my whole life. They made my engagement and wedding that much more extraordinary. Thank You!”

This gallery is the best place to have jewelry repaired in town. They have been in business for decades and best of all, the repairs are mostly done on-site. Prices are reasonable considering the excellent customer service.”
