"We keep going back"

Friday, August 18, 2017


We keep going back! I can't say enough good things about Krombholz Jewelers. My fiance and I visited several local jewelers in Cincinnati while shopping for my engagement ring and the decision to buy from Krombholz was an easy one. From the moment we first walked into Krombholz the employees were more concerned with educating us about diamonds and the selection process than making a sale. I never felt pressured. They went out of their way to bring in multiple stones for me to see, and when I wasn't able to find one I wanted the first time, they kept bringing in more. Through this process I was truly able to pick out my favorite cut in a quality level that was acceptable to me. I also had Lee create a custom setting based on pictures I provided from the internet. The final product is absolutely beautiful. I have received so many compliments on the style. Since this purchase, my fiance also returned to buy me a pair of pearl earrings. He had nothing but great things to say about his experience with Ellie and Brad during this transaction. I will also be returning to have my wedding band custom made to match my engagement ring. Aside from our extremely positive experiences in terms of customer service and quality of their jewelry, I would also say that the prices here seem very reasonable to me. I was nervous that having a band custom made would be impossible on our budget, but it ended up being the same or very similar to pricing on pre-existing bands that I didn't like as much. I would definitely recommend Krombholz to anybody looking for fine jewelry in the Cincinnati area. Thank you Krombholz for everything!

"Unequivocally the best jewelry store in the midwest"

Friday, August 18, 2017


The Best Jeweler in the Midwest! This is simply the best jewelry store in the Midwest. Customer service is the hallmark of this store, and it is matched by the knowledge and technical skill of the highly trained jewelers. Their jewelers are custom specialists, which should appeal to both newbies, as well as seasoned jewelry buyers. Their eagerness to explain options in layman terms makes it a comfortable setting to make purchases in. What is most refreshing is that they do not try to convince you to make the most expensive purchase or repair. They care about their customers, which will immediately become apparent to you when you walk in the door. The store truly has a familial atmosphere. As a professional male, the selection of the perfect engagement ring or gift is a daunting experience. Their years of experience in custom pieces allow them to understand what you desire even when you can't verbalize what you envision. This keeps the process from being overwhelming. Whether you need to purchase an engagement ring, a gift, or have a repair made, this store will exceed your expectations. I will continue to make purchases from this store. They are unequivocally the best jewelry store in the midwest!

"The end result was a masterpiece"

Friday, August 18, 2017


As a Financial Planner, I ask lots of questions to make sure the plan I develop meets the client's needs. Lee did the same when I was purchasing a ring for our 40th wedding anniversary. He proded, clarified and summarized and the end result was a masterpiece. He connected all the 6 children's initial along with mine and my wife in a white gold setting bordered by two rows of rubies signifying her birth month and 40th anniversary. His attention to detail and his dedication to creating a unique piece of beautiful jewelry with a hidden story was work worthy of a Ph.D in Jewelryology. He is the first person I recommend to friends, family and clients.

"Thank you for 3 decades of beautiful memories"

Friday, August 18, 2017


It has been my pleasure to be a Krombholz groupie for the last 30 years! What fun to see the growth and direction the business has experienced over the years. The space and jewels have become bigger and bolder but the foundation of commitment to customer service and education have remained top priority to the staff. I have appreciated the education opportunities that have been provided along the way. It is important to Lee and his staff to have well educated clients....how many jewelry stores care about that in today's world?! The Krombholz team have created many unique and special pieces for my collection that I have cherished and will be proud to pass on to my daughters in the future. Along with the custom creations made on their premise, I am a huge fan of the estate pieces that are offered in the store and the Versaille Salon. Brad is always more than happy to search out something special per customer request as well as helping to design that special piece. Thank you for 3 decades of beautiful memories and cheers to many more!

"They are so accommodating"

Friday, August 18, 2017


A few years ago I met a woman at a local gift shop and we began to chat. Right away I noticed she was wearing a stunning ring. I always observe what jewelry people wear and I love all types whether it be fine jewelry or costume. I complimented the ring and she told me that her husband purchased it for her from Krombholz Jewelers. At the time I had not heard of Krombholz, but she assured me that it was unlike any jeweler in the city. I had some time that day before my kids got home from school, so I decided to pay Krombholz a visit. I met Eli and Brad and they showed me all kinds of unique and beautiful things. I asked a bunch of questions that day and they were so friendly, nice and personable that I found myself trying to find an excuse to go back . So the next week I took an old pocket watch that my mother had given me. Brad looked over the watch and we talked all about vintage and estate jewelry. I could not believe how knowledgable he was about old world designers and how truly passionate he was about educating his clients. In almost 20 years of living in Cincinnati, I had not found any jewelers who appreciated antique jewelry like Krombholz. The rest is history. I am the proud owner of one of Lee's designs. I have purchased esate jewelry, watches and other wonderful pieces that aren't available anywhere else. The entire staff welcomes any and all questions. They are so accommodating, thorough and patient. Now I don't even try to find an excuse to stop by the store! Krombholz Jewelers is one of Cincinnati's best.

"Favorite place to shop"

Friday, August 18, 2017


My wife and daughters' favorite place to shop. Perhaps this is why Lee Krombholz and Brad Price have the perfect gift selected when I am seeking something special to purchase. Their service is outstanding.

"The most unique and perfect ring ever built"

Friday, August 18, 2017


Working with Lee Krombholz was a great experience. I obviously wanted this to be the most unique and perfect ring ever built to show my fiancée how much she means to me. I was thinking; "how do I live up to these expectations I am putting on myself?" Lee made it comfortable for me by asking questions on what I am looking for, getting design ideas from me and going back and forth about what the ring should look like. I live in San Diego CA so interacting over the phone and email was our mode of communication, Lee made it a seamless experience. So I gave her the ring last week (she said yes by the way) and I asked her if there was anything she would want to change about the ring and she said "not a thing". It was a complete success! With Lee's ability to work with me on a design using his attention to detail and creativity along with his guidance on some things to think about it ended up being going better than I had expected. I plan on buying more jewelry from Lee for our special occasions.

"Creative jewelry design artist in action"

Friday, August 18, 2017


Krombholz Jewelers! The BEST! Of course they have lovely jewelry but that is not the best part. The best part is the staff and service. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. I’ve done everything from purchase, to repairs, to custom made jewelry. Brad is very creative and great to work with. My custom made jewelry made from favorite gems acquired in my travels met all my multi-functional desires – wear as a necklace, pin or come apart and reassemble into something different. What fun! And the price - reasonable. My favorite area features vintage jewelry/estate...There are often unusual exquisite offerings – irresistible! Brad’s resourceful consultation helped me find just the right gift for my daughter’s 16th birthday and later, graduation from college – exactly fit her taste and style. When you visit Krombholz, check out Lee’s latest design project/awards… creative jewelry design artist in action! Wow.

"If you want the job done right, go directly to Lee Krombholz"

Friday, August 18, 2017


My husband proposed with a beautiful ring that had a setting that sat low and didn't quite work with any wedding band. In order to accommodate wearing a wedding band with it, I took it to another jeweler that re-set the diamonds into a setting that fixed the problem but that did not fit the diamonds nicely. Ugh! Finally, I met with Lee Krombholz who was recommended by a friend. He looked at both settings and immediately saw the issues I was having and a solution! For a very reasonable price, Lee took the existing ring and was able to make the necessary changes and I now have the ring I always wanted. I wish my husband and I had known about Krombholz years ago. If you want the job done right, go directly to Lee Krombholz.

"Krombholz are the only jewelers I would go to"

Friday, August 18, 2017


I have to agree completely with these other warm testimonials - it's a wonderful experience interacting with Lee and Eli at Krombholz Jewelers - great service and a welcoming atmosphere. Last year I went to them searching for a diamond band for my fiancé. Lee and Eli listened carefully to my questions and design preferences, and then Lee designed a truly beautiful ring, beyond my expectations. He finished it in time for me to present it to her on Christmas Eve, and she was thrilled. I would add that the price was very reasonable, considering the quality of the ring. Krombholz are now the only jewelers I would go to, and the one store that I would recommend to others.

"Truly a wonderful experience"

Friday, August 18, 2017


Working with Lee on my wife's wedding band was truly a wonderful experience. For such a special, important piece, you want to make sure you have a jeweler you can trust and will do a fantastic job. We received exactly that in Krombholz Jewelers. Knowing the owner is also the chief designer on our ring gave us great comfort that the job would be well done. Given their track record and my experience working with them, I would recommend them for anyone in need of a great jeweler!

"This place is fantastic"

Friday, August 18, 2017


I visited Krombholz looking for an engagement ring. I had no idea what I wanted, so I went in to look around. I was nervous about this process because I hate to deal with pushy salespeople and knew I didn't want to spend a fortune. The sales people answered all of my questions and didn't pressure me at all. They waited patiently while I looked through every case. Once I had found some features that I liked, they set up an appointment for me to meet with their designer, Lee, to decide if I wanted to choose between one of the rings that I liked in the cases or get a quote for a custom ring. I found out that custom jewelry doesn't have to be outrageously priced. He took each of the features that I like in different rings and combined them to make something that expressed my personal style. He has a multi-step design process to make sure you know exactly what the ring will look like and allows you to make adjustments along the way. Lee is a genius! Because I had my ring custom designed, I was actually able to get a more intricately designed ring within my budget than I would have anywhere else. My fiancé and I returned to get his band there, too. This place is fantastic!

"We were very satisfied with the price"

Friday, August 18, 2017


My fiancee and I loved our experience with Krombholz Jewelers. They were professional, knowledgeable, creative, flexible, and reasonable in price. We wanted to design the ring from scratch and Krombholz was very accommodating for this purpose. From the beginning to the end they gave us one-on-one attention and were generous with their time to help us explore our options and unique preferences. In designing the ring they helped us to learn which designs were feasible, given our budget. When we changed our mind on a few aspects of the design, Krombholz was flexible. For the quality and amount of customization we received, we were very satisfied with the price. It was an enjoyable process, and we look forward to returning to them in the future.

"The staff is talented, energetic and like family"

Friday, August 18, 2017


My husband and I have had a love affair with Krombholz jewelers for many years. The staff is talented, energetic and like family. Lee has designed many beautiful pieces for me that I cherish. The girls in our family love all the wonderful jewels they have gotten. Even the granddaughters are getting the bug! This is a beautifully run business that I would recommend to anyone who loves fine things.

"Very happy with the results"

Friday, August 18, 2017


Lee and the Kromboltz staff are amazing! My engagement and wedding ring set is beautiful. My fiancé wanted me to have a ring I would be happy with for years and knew I had to be involved in the selection I wanted a unique, handcrafted ring with meaning and symbolism that was understated and comfortable to wear. I also wanted my stones to be ethically sourced and to support a local business. The professionals at Kromboltz helped us accomplish all this and exceeded expectations. I started out bringing in some family diamonds, inspirational images and some rough sketches. Brad helped me assess the diamonds I had and refine my design choices. Because the design I had in mind was specific we worked directly with Lee who was happy to work up my design in wax and provide expert advise on choosing a metal, additional stones, and a finish. Lee answered all my questions, helped me consider design choices and was happy to bring my design to life. We never felt pressured, always felt heard and are very happy with the results. We will be back!

"A very pleasant and cooperative experience"

Friday, August 18, 2017


I could not be happier with my experience at Krombholz. They did an amazing job customizing my fiancee's engagement ring exactly to my specifications, and both her and I have received many compliments on it. We’re both extremely satisfied with the quality of the work, as well as the professionalism and personal attention we received.

"veryone is helpful and very nice"

Friday, August 18, 2017


I absolutely love Krombholz! They have designed jewelry for my family for generations. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Everyone is helpful and very nice. They are there for you, the customer. I just designed an engagement ring. I used diamonds from my parents and it turned out beautiful, with Lee's help. He was so patient and knew what I wanted. I have always recommended them to others and will continue to do so.

" I can not say enough good things"

Friday, August 18, 2017


I was looking for a jeweler to mount a treasure coin for me that I had just recently purchase. I searched jeweler s in the Cincinnati area and choose Kromholz because of all the positive comments and feedback that previous customers had left. When I went to pick my coin up was I ever pleased. The quality of their work is impeccable. I can not say enough good things about Krombholz Jewelry. Should you go there you will not be displeased and that is a fact.

"I highly recommend Krombholz Jewelers"

Friday, August 18, 2017


I highly recommend Krombholz Jewelers. Lee designed my wife’s engagement ring and wedding band and did an outstanding job. Recently I worked with Lee in creating a diamond pendant for my wife. He made the process easy for me and created a beautiful and unique pendant. My wife gets compliments all the time on the jewelry she has from Krombholz. In addition to designing such high quality jewelry, the customer service is phenomenal. Each time I go to Krombholz I am very impressed with the staff and how friendly they are. They go above and beyond. There are many jewelers in Cincinnati, but Krombholz is at the top of the pack.

"A wonderful experience"

Saturday, January 14, 2017


I wanted to take a moment to share with you a wonderful experience that my fiancé and I had at Krombholtz Jewelers. My fiancé is from England. He was visiting me here in Cincinnati, and wanted to shop for loose diamonds to put in an engagement ring setting. After much research, and looking at websites, he felt that Krombholtz was the best choice for his needs. Upon arriving at Krombholtz, we were immediately greeted by Kara. She informed us that in order to view loose stones, we would need to make an appointment in advance. We explained that my fiancé was due to leave the States the following day. After listening to what we were looking for, Kara offered to show us what was currently in store. We found a vintage ring that was exactly what we were considering designing from a loose stone. The ring was a very small size, and the band was thin and a bit delicate. We asked about resizing and reinforcing the band. Kara handled all of it beautifully. She was knowledgeable, professional, and very personable. I had made arrangements to pick the ring up the following Saturday. While we can’t be sure, my fiancé and I both have a feeling that Kara spoke with the Jeweler about our situation. That evening at dinner, we received a phone call telling us the ring was ready, and we could pick it up any time the following day. Needless to say, we were thrilled, and stunned that the adjustments to the ring were finished so quickly. We arrived shortly after the store opened the next morning. The ring was absolutely gorgeous. The changes were flawless. We could not tell that any work had been done to the band at all. We were also provided with an appraisal, at no additional cost to us. Because of Kara’s help, my fiancé was able to personally place the ring on my hand, and that is priceless. We wish to take this moment to commend Kara, and the jeweler who made the changes to the ring (unfortunately, we don’t have his name). We will definitely recommend Krombholtz to friends and family.
