"Dear Howerton Jewelers,
I am writing to you regarding my recent purchase of a custom made engagement ring and wedding band set. I cannot tell you how happy my Fiancée and I are with
these two rings. Even from the first time I spoke with Dan Howerton on the phone, I was impressed. Dan was honest and straight-forward with me as he took the time to answer all of my
questions without ever trying “sell” me on a piece of jewelry. In fact, Dan did suggest that since I was concerned about the cost of an
engagement ring, a custom made engagement ring would likely cost more than one purchased from a national chain jewelry store. However, Dan did offer to provide me with an estimate so that I could effectively weigh all of my purchasing options. Within just a few days, He produced an estimate complete with a digital
rending of how the finished ring would look. After working with Dan to add some personal touches, we ended up with a beautiful set of rings what were of higher quality than any other ring I found at the national chain stores.
When the day came that I was able to pick up the finished rings, I was not completely sure what to expect. Although Dan allowed me to personally examine the wax molds, diamonds, and ring blanks as they were created, nothing prepared me to how stunning the finished rings looked. Even the box that the rings were presented to me in was of superior quality.
After the engagement, my Fiancée had her rings appraised by a very well respected Jeweler in Peoria, IL. I held my breath as I waited to hear the assessed values of these rings. To my delight, the Jeweler noted that the rings exhibited excellent craftsmanship and the diamonds were of higher grade than described in Howerton Jeweler's bill of sale. Further, these diamonds were appraised to be worth more than 37% of the price I paid for them.
All I can say now is, “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!” Howerton Jewelers has helped to make this purchase such a memorable and special occasion for my Fiancée and I. Not only are we completely ecstatic about these rings, but I can easily foresee us becoming repeat customers many times over.”

"Dan, has been fantastic to work with! To start from the beginning, I found a ceramic ring by Chanel and wanted my ring designed somewhat similar. Dan took our concept and worked with us until we were all satisfied with the final product. He was patient, courteous, timely, and professional in every aspect of this transaction. We highly recommend Howerton Jewelers for quality products,service, and pricing! Dan you made this event even more special for Brian and me!"

"Dan Howerton was absolutely amazing to work with. Besides being very personable and friendly, he was very knowledgeable about his products. My husband and I went to Dan with very little idea about what we wanted my engagement and wedding ring set to look like. Dan gave us all the information we needed and designed several different sets to fit what we were looking for. He designed the PERFECT set and we absolutely love everything about our rings and the service we received at Howerton Jewelers. These days, you want to make sure you are getting what you pay for, and Dan will get you the most bang for your buck. Dan goes above and beyond what any jeweler we have ever dealt with has offered. His goal is that you are 100% satisfied with what you get. We can't wait to go back and work with him again!"
