“Freeda was fantastic. She found us a beautiful diamond and made the perfect ring for us. She was professional, knowledgeable and yet approachable. Never did she make us feel intimidated. In fact Shamins is a very comfortable and inviting store. Thanks again for making our special day sparkle forever.
We went into many other jewellery stores but they were all determined to just sell something to us but your team took the time to explain to us the details of diamond cutting and grading while you gave us lattes to sip on. The service was amazing! We even had warm chocolate chip cookies! Wow! In the end we choose an amazing diamond at thousands of dollars less than I was quoted in other stores. She is still mesmerized by the diamond and I am a happily married! Thanks!
From the moment my girlfriend and I walked in to Shamin, Deborah made us feel welcome. She never offered to help us or to sell us anything. In fact her first words to us were how are you and she went on to talk to us about our courtship. We felt like we were making a new friend. She made us feel very comfortable. She took the time to explain and educate us on diamonds and settings. We choose a great ring for her that would not be a problem when she puts on gloves at work. Deborah said it was her personal favourite style and we choose it for us. I just wanted to thank Deborah for all her assistance. I will definitely recommend her and Shamin to anyone that is in the market for a ring in the future.
"I had no idea what to look for but you made it so easy for me. After just a short talk I knew enough to make a knowledgeable decision and choose an Ideal Heart and Arrows 1 Carat which was E in Colour and flawless to the naked eye. The setting was gorgeous and you seemed to know better than I did what she would like. The price was fantastic, literally thousands less than other stores were charging for an H colour. The diamond sparkles like crazy, not just in bright lights but the best sparkle is under the candlelight in restaurants, amazing! Thank you!"

I would like to thank you and the staff at Shamin for the wonderful service I received every time I came through your doors. You have made us both very happy. Thank you again.
Twenty five years ago, I bought my engagement ring from Shamin on Victoria Drive. Last month I came in for a 4 Carat eternity band in Platinum. I had something in mind that I had seen in another jewellery store for $14,000. I explained the style to Shahraz and he made me not only the exact ring but he went better. The diamonds are bigger and higher quality and I paid him less than half of the price I was quoted in another store.
Thanks again for the ring, Shenifa absolutely loves it!! As well as everyone else that lays eyes on it. It’s perfect!!! (Via text message)
Shahraz, We just left the store. Thank you again for all of your help. I’ve heard so many horror stories from friends about their relationships with jewellers... I feel honoured that I had no such experiences. Everytime my wife looks at her ring or when people compliment her on it, her face lights up – that would not be possible had it not been for you. I look forward to seeing you again. Thank you again and all the best my friend.
She said yes!!! It went perfectly; she is in love with the ring. She can’t stop starring at it. She says thank you so much! (Via text message)
