"Absolutely flawless work. I brought my channel set platinum wedding band in to have one of the diamonds replaced. Not only was the work reasonably priced, when I received my ring back, it looked spectacular! It looked brand new! I will definitely be using this business again for all my jewelry repair needs. Super customer service."

"I was taken care of from the moment I walked into Areias Jewelers. Isauro came out from behind his bench and walked me through my purchase of an engagement ring. He took his time and explained all of my options and offered to customize my ring to make it one-of-a-kind. I was looking for a more simple, classic Tiffany setting and even though they didn't have an example of what I was looking for in the case, he made the ring exactly the way I had described and my lady loves it. Everyone I dealt with was very professional and the ring was ready before the date I requested and the size was perfect. I will definitely be going back for our wedding bands."

"This jeweler is as good as they get! I don't own a lot of jewelry but I've dealt with Mark Areias Jewelers for a few very important pieces and they always have fantastic customer service and the quality of work is unsurpassed. They recently made my engagement ring and I was in the store today to pick up my ring which was being re-sized (at no additional cost) and I asked about a jewelry box/case they had displayed on the counter. I wanted to purchase it because I've been looking for something just like it that I could travel with. Mark (the owner) said that I could have it, as a gift, no charge!
I also had my friend with me and she is looking to sell some jewelry. We asked Mark a few questions and he spent about 30 minutes talking with us and giving her some great advice and options. He also inspected her ring and cleaned it....all for no charge of course, even though the ring didn't even come from Areias.
This place simply has the best atmosphere, great customer service, and it was so nice being surprised when I was fully ready to buy the jewelry box. I will always come here first for any sort of jewelry or watch purchase or service. I recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing and trustworthy jeweler on the Central Coast...they have a store in Aptos, CA and Carmel, CA"

"When looking into places to find the perfect engagement ring, you want someone you can trust and make that moment feel as special as possible. The minute I walked into Mark Areais store I knew I was in the right place. The store is located in Carmel and is so lovely. He has so many beautiful things, which are all very tastefully done. Mark took a lot of time to talk to me about each piece and had a nice inventory to choose from. He is very knowledgeable and creative and put together the perfect ring for me. I didn't feel rushed and I was able to enjoy every minute of the process. The service was very personalized and I found a beautiful one of a kind ring. I'm so happy with the final product I am smiling from ear to ear. I would highly recommend this store, especially for the personalized attention, their honesty, the beautiful inventory, and their prompt attention."
