Their new hours are Monday through Saturday from 11-am till 4-pm but they are closed on Wednesdays.

Jewels By Joe is one of the few companies in the International Jewelry Center that is open to the public.  There are a lot of jewelers in downtown Los Angeles, but it is worth your time to make your first stop at Jewels By Joe in suite 765 at 550 South Hill Street.  There is parking in the building.

Jewels By Joe is a true discounter and importer and designer and is famous for its custom work with quality stones at low prices.  Looking for an engagement ring?  Well, look here first for extraordinary settings and stones including fancy yellow diamonds and a full selection of different shape diamonds including round, princess, marquis, and more.

THE JEWELERS MALL IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Update December 4, 2012  The Jewelers Mall in downtown Los Angeles, in the heart of the downtown Los Angeles jewelry district is open to the public and during the holidays The Jewelers Mall is open 7 days a week.  After the holiday season, The Jewelers Mall will return to its regular schedule of being open six days a week and closed on Sundays.  There are more than fifty independent jewelers in The Jewelers Mall and each operates their own private store -- and these are not booths so you are assured of privacy and security.  And because all of the stores are private and independently owned you can do comparison shopping across a full range of quality jewelry.

The Jewelers Mall is also very careful about making sure that only high quality and responsible jewelers operate there and most of the stores have been operating for 15 years or longer at The Jewelers Mall.  You will find specialists for engagement rings, wedding bands, pearls, diamond jewelry and loose diamonds.  And in the basement of The Jewelers Mall is a restaurant and shops where you can have jewelry and watches repaired and customized.

What most customers like is that The Jewelers Mall has its own parking garage above the stores and this means you can take an elevator directly from the stores to your parking level and your car.  In addition to the direct route to parking, there is also security throughout the building.  Parking rates are reasonable.  Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.

PARISIEN HAS THE FASHION ALTERNATIVES FOR MEN'S GOLD AND PLATINUM WEDDING BANDS

Update October 24, 2012  In the downtown Los Angeles Jewelry District you will find La Parisien Design Company which is a true gem of a discounter.  La Parisien Design Company not only offers great values and great designs on traditional 18kt and 14kt gold and diamond wedding bands for men, but it also offers the new fashion alternative metals for men's wedding bands.  These alternative metals include cobalt and tunsten carbide.  Two things in particular make cobalt and tunsten carbide so appealing and they are their low cost and their durability and resistance to scratching.

Based on today's gold price, cobalt and tunsten carbide wedding bands are priced at about 10% of what similar designs would cost in white gold or yellow gold.  But unlike gold, cobalt and tunsten carbide wedding bands are not easily scratched and will keep their "like-new" appearance for years to come.  These alternative metal bands are also heavy and feel like platinum bands.  Cobalt and tungsten carbide wedding bands can also be set with diamonds and gemstones.  With traditional gold wedding bands sometimes costing $1200 or more, these wedding bands made of cobalt and tunsten carbide not only make sense but are growing in popularity.

Parisien carries a full line of wedding bands by Goldman and other premier jewelry design houses.

Parisien also carries unique jewelry designs including the new micro pave diamond jewelry with each fine piece of jewelry artistically created with several hundred sparkling diamonds.  These represent the new look for pave diamond jewelry.  You will also find unique settings for diamond engagement rings and diamonds with GIA and EGL certification are always discounted.  Financing is now being offered.  Our Best Buys TV Show report on Parisien is below.

OSCAR'S DESIGN JEWELRY

Update November 22, 2011  We just visited Oscar's to see their current quality lines of jewelry for men and women, and if you are shopping for wedding jewelry, an engagement ring. or fashion jewelry with diamonds and precious stones, you should make Oscar's your first place to shop.  Oscar Bayeh is a skilled jewelry designer and studied design at the GIA and in Europe and he is a graduate gemologist by the GIA.  Simply, this means he knows his stuff and he is a pleasure to do business with too.  This is a family owned business that has delivered quality for more than 20 years, and I know what I'm talking about because I bought jewelry at Oscar's including my wife's diamond engagement ring.

Oscar's Design Jewelry is in Suite 725 of the International Jewelry Center.  Call them at 213-622-1200 or visit their showroom at 550 South Hill Street in downtown Los Angeles.  Check their web site at www.OscarRing.com.

In our visit for the 2011 Holiday Season, Oscar's is featuring a fabulous selection of loose diamonds that are GIA certified to create the engagement ring or diamond jewelry exactly the way you want it.  Oscar uses ideal cut diamonds to show true brilliance.  Engagement rings are the specialty at Oscar's along with bridal sets and wedding bands for men.

You will find many designer rings and designer jewelry featured at Oscar's including engagement rings by Simon G.  There is fashion jewelry by Zeghani, and Italian designers Leo Pizzo, Crevelli and Palmeiro are also featured.  If you have an idea for a piece of jewelry, Oscar will create it for you and show you how your idea will look with 3-D computer technology.  Fashion diamond jewelry of all styles is available and you will love the assortment of earrings, pendants, rings and necklaces.  You will be getting the best prices on quality diamonds.

Men's wedding bands are available from Niessing which is known for tension rings.  There are also wedding bands by Benchmark, Artcarved, Diana and Goldman.  For men there are also wedding bands in tungsten and titanium which are becoming very stylish.  Our new Best Buys TV Show report for the 2011 holiday season is below.

JEWELS BY JOE AT 550 S. HILL STREET

Jewels By Joe is one of the few companies in the International Jewelry Center that is open to the public.  There are a lot of jewelers in downtown Los Angeles, but it is worth your time to make your first stop at Jewels By Joe in suite 765 at 550 South Hill Street.  There is parking in the building.

Jewels By Joe is a true discounter and importer and designer and is famous for its custom work with quality stones at low prices.  Looking for an engagement ring?  Well, look here first for extraordinary settings and stones including fancy yellow diamonds and a full selection of different shape diamonds including round, princess, marquis, and more.

Make no mistake about it, diamond prices are down 30% or more because of the recession and that's why the values are even greater at Jewels By Joe.  While gold and platinum prices have risen, the fact is that gold and platinum makes up only a small fraction of the price of diamond jewelry so you will still save a lot of money here and still get the highest quality.  There are diamond stud earrings with one carat total weight starting at $800, and exquisite white gold and diamond hoop earrings starting at $300.  Jewelry here can be styled with colored stones including sapphires, rubies, emeralds, peridot, amethyst and blue topaz.  They also buy and sell gold and silver and platinum bullion.

Call Jewels By Joe at (213) 488-0048 or go to www.jewelsbyjoe.com for more information.  Watch our video report below but please note that the prices and selection might not be available as this report was prepared several months ago.
