Greg was great and very helpful. He replied on time and was of great assistance in helping designing the ring. Myself, and the more importantly my fiance, were very satisfied with the ring. Couldn't thank Greg more, would definitely recommend Greg. All the price that he quoted was very affordable given what we wanted. More...

My fiancée and I are absolutely thrilled with the engagement ring from Jacob Mercari! Greg is very professional, patient, and pays attention to every last detail - I showed him an example of a ring that I was interested in and he made it to perfection. During the process, Greg was very helpful in outlining different options and was always available to answer my questions. We are so excited with the final product, and have received several compliments on the gorgeous ring! We would strongly recommend Greg and his work! More...

My experience with Greg at Jacob Mercari exceeded all my expectations. I had gone to many other diamond jewelry stores in search of the perfect engagement ring but none could help me with the customization I wanted for the ring. I decided to give Greg a shot, the biggest difference I saw with him compared to the others was his genuine desire to help me create that perfect ring I wanted for my fiancee. He really took the time to listen to what I was looking for, reviewed my pictures as a reference and worked with my budget. I felt no pressure at any point during my time with Greg to make a decision. He provided me with quotes, ring renderings, and grading certificate reports. He was able to address all of my concerns and questions, and was completely transparent with me. If you go with Jacob Mercari you will feel at ease and confident with your decision.I will definitely recommend them to all my friends and family! Thank you so much, Greg and the entire Jacob Mercari team! More...

Went to Greg to get a custom engagement ring made. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process--from helping picking the centre stone to answering any and every question (and that too in a very timely manner). The 3D rendering of the design I received was super helpful. Not once did I feel any pressure to make any decision. In the end, the ring that I got greatly surpassed my expectations. I definitely recommend Jacob Mercari! More...

Greg from Jacob Mercari helped me design the perfect engagement ring. He brought my vision into reality. The ring is absolutely stunning! The quality of their work and customer service was so good that we returned to design our wedding bands which also turned out perfectly. He is always very accommodating and met us after hours at our convenience. The customer service and the after care is something we really appreciate. Thank you Greg! More...

5/5 experience from start to finish.My future mother-in-law and I met with Greg at Jacob Mercari to create a rose cut diamond engagement ring for my now fiancee. This was all new to me, but Greg explained everything in detail and answered all our questions; listened to what we wanted and never pushed; and most importantly made it a truly genuine and positive experience that we will never forget. He went above and beyond our expectations.My only wish is that my fiancee got to witness how great of an experience it was, but I think the surprise was worth well it! She will get to meet Greg when we go for our wedding bands in the near future. More...

I can't say enough good things about my experience with Gregory. First off, he gave me a full education on diamonds and let me know the difference between the letters on the grading system, and which ones were more important than others. He did the opposite of upselling - he just wanted to make sure I got the best value for my budget. He took his time with me, and I never felt rushed or pressured. He also goes completely above and beyond - once I bought the ring, he let me know that was just the beginning. He is always there for free cleaning/polishing, resizing...whatever we need. You will not meet a nicer and more knowledgeable person in this industry - he is more than fair, and provides amazing prices. We have already recommended him to family and friends. 10 stars! More...

We went to Greg for my fiancee's engagement ring, and he was fantastic from start to finish! She is beyond happy with her ring. We both went to Greg for an initial meeting, where he taught us everything you need to know about stones, rings and the design process. He was patient, transparent, flexible and knowledgeable. Greg designed a jaw-dropping ring based on our input. He made me feel comfortable and confident every step of the way, and he stands by his creations. I highly recommend going to Jacob Mercari!!

I only have good things to say about Gregory and his business Jacob Mercari. Beyond being an expert in his field with training in Belgium, Gregory was super helpful, thoughtful, and personable in the process of sourcing the right diamond for our engagement ring. We sourced our engagement and wedding bands from him and would go back / recommend that anyone looking for diamonds/engagement jewelry seek out his services. We also came as tourists with tight timelines which Gregory was able to adapt to and work with to get us our dream stone / ring within less than two weeks. I can highly recommend for anyone from outside Canada looking for a Canadian sourced diamond and wanting to combine it with a holiday in the area. Gregory is very selective of his stones, which was evident in the brilliance and beyond excellent cut of ours. In addition, Gregory has his own mount design which we find very elegant. Great, friendly, personal service and an unbeatable price for the quality! Well worth your time to give Gregory at Jacob Mercari a call. More...

We had a wonderful experience with Greg at Jacob Mercari, who helped us find a lab diamond to meet very exacting specifications for my engagement ring. We never once felt pressured during our consultation with Greg, and he really helped us understand the buying process. I am quite an educated diamond buyer and I was very impressed by Greg's knowledge and his access to a wide variety of diamonds. Lab diamonds are still a small part of the market, but he was able to import two diamonds for us to consider (still with no obligation to buy!). I loved both diamonds and am so happy with my ring. The advantage of going with a lab diamond is that they are much more affordable but are visually, chemically, and structurally identical to mined diamonds. Greg gave us a full rendering of the ring for me to approve beforehand, which gave me confidence in our design choices. I LOVE my ring and it looks like it cost almost double what it did (in my opinion), because lab diamonds are a very economical choice. I highly recommend going with Jacob Mercari for your engagement ring, whether you're looking for a lab or mined diamond. He'll help you get a ring you love and make sure you get the best value for your budget. More...

I did a lot of self research on diamonds, but more importantly on Toronto’s best engagement ring / jewelry designer. I narrowed it down to a few, and then met with 3 of them to decide whom to go with. After reading his reviews and meeting him in person for my initial consultation, Greg easily ranked as the top choice. He was humble, honest and trustworthy. Furthermore I loved his designs and his openness - he never made me feel pressured during the process. We selected some diamonds after we narrowed it down based on my budget and wishes. Greg nailed it - he showed me diamonds perfectly meeting all criteria. They were all stellar, including his lab created choices. In the end I chose a beautiful mined diamond. The design process was easy, Greg delivered on all my wishes - and we even included my girlfriend (now fiancé) at a stage. Greg created a beautiful ring! I felt included and communicated to throughout - and he even gave me some tips on proposing over seas in terms of safety transporting the ring. We LOVE the ring, my fiancé is so happy and everyone we meet notices it - it’s a real show stopper!Thanks Greg - for being a part of our engagement story, we will cherish the ring you created for us always. I would HIGHLY recommned Jacob Mercari - he stands out amongst the many choices available in Toronto. Thanks - Brad More...
