A Rare Find!.
As a jewelry lover and avid traveler, I have enjoyed and purchased some of the most amazing jewelry the world has to offer. To my surprise I discovered an amazing jewelry artist right here in Austin. Zoltan David's work equals or surpasses the best I have ever seen. As an artist, his passion, vision , and craftsmanship are extraordinary. I purchased a rare cognac diamond ring that was an absolute must have for my collection. Zoltan was a consummate professional, the information about the ring, it's precious metal qualities, it's creative process, and gem information was far more detailed than any sales associate has ever offered me. Since then I have become a huge fan of his work, whenever I visit, he is always busy working on his latest piece but never hesitates to come and greet me, clean my beautiful ring, and offer up any service or information that I may need. Might I add, this ring invites more compliments and adoration than any of the other pieces from my collection.
It is rare as a jewelry client to be able to interact with a designer/craftsman of his caliber( this level of designer is usually behind the scenes and unavailable). Personally I think his work is historic and visionary, what a treat to have him in my home town!
Expensive, pretty, poor durability, bad attitude.
Part 1: He isn't cheap, but he is doing custom work you can't find anywhere else so you are going to pay a premium. It is what it is.
Part 2: He makes pretty stuff. He is creative and his work is definitely one of a kind.
Part 3: It doesn't last. The rings we bought from him (engagement plus band) wore horribly. You just look at them and they scratched. Furthermore, we needed some work done when the basket on the engagement ring fell off (thank God we didn't lose the basket + diamond).
Part 4: Zoltan is pompous and arrogant (he's good at what he does so I guess he feels he gets a free pass on this). When we brought the ring in, he fixed it but not without being extremely accusatory of my wife's wearing habits. Apparently he thinks his rings aren't for everyday wear.
Bottom line: A very "Eh" experience. We've spent over $20k at his store and he won't be getting another dime.
On a side note, Zoltan's wife Patti is a wonderful woman. He should just let her do the talking. She actually understands customer service.
One of a kind!. When I was 22 we purchased my wedding ring from Zoltan David! I am not 29 years old and my wedding ring is still the mose valuable and most precious piece of jewelry I own. Patti gave me world class customer service when we went into the store and she was never pushy. Zoltan was very knowledgeable and customozed my ring with pink sapphires which I loved since pink is my favorite color! To this day I don't want a piece of jewelry from any other store! It has to come from Zoltan David!! Unique and One of a kind :)
Spectacular craftsmanship, wonderful service.... My wife and I had our wedding bands made by Zoltan and could not be more happy over a year later. The level of craftsmanship that the experts at the gallery is unmatched in my opinion. I found Zoltan to be very upfront and willing to help and educate me as a novice jewelry purchaser (23 year old trying to get a wonderful engagement and wedding ring). The uniqueness of the techniques that he and his goldsmiths utilize cannot be found elsewhere. I believe that Austin is very lucky to have an industry leading jewelry artisan in such proximity. Whereas other jewelry establishments offer mass produced cast items, Zoltan offers custom, unique, and beautiful alternatives. Any woman, I believe, would be proud to wear something from this studio.
