Before I review the excellent service always provided us by Karats of Overland Park, KS, let me mention I call Akshay "Andy" Anand "friend".
This fine young man has been so very willing to help make the moments of our family's lives memorable. The key to any successful person and/or business is that willingness to please... to go the extra mile. Andy possesses this trait in spades!
When my son had inherited a diamond with hopes of creating an engagement ring for his beautiful fiance', Andy and his team opened Karats early on a Saturday morning to host us privately. How sweet being part of designing my future daughter in law's engagement ring with my beloved first born son. Thank you, Akshay for helping create a memory my 'mom heart' will cherish forever. The absolutely stunning engagement ring has legacy starting with Seano's grandfather (owner of the diamond) while including his mother (happy me) in the design process...The minor miracle is we managed to keep this a secret. Seano totally surprised Katie with the proposal and stunning gift from Karat's Jewelers, despite the team involved in the creative process!!
Thank you, sweet Akshay your patience with me when I consistently show up to social events in costume jewelry. Recently, you helped me change this practice. You gave our dear Dan an opportunity to give me the most beautiful black and white diamond "eternity" ring as replacement for an original band lost over 30 years ago. Need I mention how very happy you made Dr. Dan? This has more meaning to me than anyone will ever realize...xo
Once again, Akshay Andy Anand has been a part of the memories of our life time. For your friendship, we are grateful. For the excellent service, beauty and quality of merchandise, we are appreciative.
As Akshay's hero says, "Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected." Steve Jobs
Congratulations, Akshay for being a yardstick of quality and for raising the bar on so many levels of relationship.
Andy and the Karats staff in Overland Park could not have treated me any better than they did. I ordered the engagement ring about a month before an on and off again trip out of the country. When I decided to go on the trip 6 days before the flight I contacted Andy to see if it was possible to get the engagement 2 weeks early for the proposal. Andy was able to come through for me and get the ring delivered overnight and in my hands just in time for the trip. If it was not for him everything would not have worked out perfect, but thanks to him it did.
The staff was not pushy, but were very attentive to my needs. Though I had researched a lot prior to coming in they were able to help me narrow down my selection to the perfect ring, and my fiance could not be any happier. I would give them 6 stars if possible. I have already recommended them to a friend who started picking out a ring last week.
My amazing boyfriend surprised me by taking me into Karats recently while we were visiting family in Overland Park. The moment I walked in the front entrance I was very impressed by the presentation of the store setup which made my experience so much more exciting! I have always heard of Karats Jewelers and I have to admit I've looked at some google reviews to see what others felt about this place and I was not disappointed at all. So, imagine how ecstatic I was just being in that store at that moment :)) Andy was the one who actually help us first hand and was delightful with helping me decide which type of engagement ring I wanted. If you know me, you know I'm not the kind of girl who just wants anyone to spend a crap load of money on me. Even though money is not an object here, I wanted to know that we were getting the best quality engagement ring that we are paying for. I saw a few rings that I really liked but, we decided to custom design a vintage engagement ring and that so happens to be Karats specialty! The entire staff was so patient with picky me and answered all of my detailed questions with such genuine caring souls. I think that was the thing that made it feel so right buying from this family owned jeweler. I was back there a few times again when I had more questions or just in the area and the entire staff was so gracious and courteous every time i visited them. Andy was so sincere and really knows how to listen to my needs. When my ring was done it was stunning! It truly came out better than I had imagined...you will not be disappointed.
Karats, Best Decision I've Ever Made
Andy and his staff exemplify excellence when it comes to jewelry shopping. I didn't feel like I was working with a "money hungry sales man", but instead a family member that wanted the best for me and my fiancée!
I was able to contact him anytime, day or night through facebook! Talk about AWESOME!! I had a ton of questions and Andy answered each one with clarity and patience. I can't begin to describe how this little gesture impacted my ring buying experience! It completely put me at ease and made the whole process a breeze! Andy definitely gets "TWO THUMBS WAY UP" in my book!
This is what truly sets Karats apart from any other jewelry store. Their CUSTOMER SERVICE, SELECTION and PRICING!! We will definitely be returning to Karats when we start looking for my ring.
Karats was the best decision I was able to make when I finally decided to propose to my girlfriend. I researched online for several weeks and found three designers that were all at Karats. I arrived with the designer codes for the rings and they were all available for viewing. This helped me out so much in being able to see all the different rings I looked at online in one place in person!
If it wasn't for Ashley, Andy, and staff I would not have received the education in picking the right diamond, setting, and being given special attention.
Ashley's perspective helped me out tremendoulsly and allowed me to narrow my choice down quickly.
The service was impeccable and so personal. Everyone allowed me to feel at ease and were so generous in helping me out in any way they could.
I highly suggest Karats for engagement rings, settings, diamonds, wedding bands, upgrades, and all other jewelry needs because of the extra mile they go for you!
Great experience and beautiful selection. Bought my engagement ring here and the service was wonderful, should add, above and beyond than any store I had been too, visited nearly every store in the city. Later discovered that Karats is a local family operated business. After I proposed to my now fiance we came back to the store to get the ring sized and I couldn't believe how wonderful everyone is at Karats. Andy & Louise went above and beyond to help us, the ring had to go back to the designer for sizing and when it came back it was JUST PERFECT. We couldn't be happier. It is a top notch store with personal attention and a huge selection. You dont feel like you are being helped by a salesperson. They are well experienced, knowledgable and take immense pride in what they do. You can clearly see it. I would recommend Karats Jewelers to any one looking for a great experience and beautiful jewelry.
We cannot wait to go back and get our matching bands. We have found a life long jeweler.
If you're shopping around for high quality gemstones and jewelry, at a great value, and want above and beyond service, then Karats is definitely the place to go.
I wanted to buy the love of my life a near flawless diamond without having to pay an arm and a leg. I had already spent 5 months searching for the perfect diamond, and shopped with at least 12 high-end diamond vendors. I was referred to Karats by a co-worker who had recently purchased an anniversary gift from them.
Andy, the owner, exclusively helped me with my diamond purchase. He not only answered all of my questions within an hour, but he went above and beyond and explained every process. He personally taught me how to read a GI certificate and all the things you want to look for in a diamond.
I could tell that Andy is a trustworthy businessman, because he always provided me with an unbiased set of pros and cons for each diamond I was considering. I told him what I was looking for, and he supplied me with several great options. I was able to narrow it down to two. Andy then went through the pros and cons again, which helped me to make my final decision.
Karats is stocked with a large variety of gemstones and jewelry. I’m confident that you will find the perfect piece for your loved one, just like how I found the perfect diamond for my new fiancé. We are both extremely happy with my purchase from Karats.
My girlfriend and I were both excited to start looking for engagement rings but had no clue where to start. A quick search of the area turned up Karats Jewelers, little did we know that this would be not only our first, but also out last stop in the quest for a ring. The reason? Simply put, the people that work there and the lengths they were willing to go to in order to make us happy. We visited many other jewelers... the big box stores, the mall, and other locally owned stores, but found ourselves always comparing each visit to Karats. None even came close to the warm personal experience we received there. I won't even mention that the better prices.
Long story short, if you're in the same situation I was, there is a HUGE difference between the jewelers in this area. If you want to overpay for a ring and diamond and get a very impersonal experience, then visit the mall or any other large chain jewelry store where the pressure to sell is more important than the person buying it. If you want great service, before and after the sale, AND want to get a better deal on a ring and diamond... head to Karats!
My cousin and I drove about 150 miles from Western Kansas to Karats Jewelers to get her precious vintage style custom made engagement ring from Kirk Kara designer brand.
Why bother such long drive, you might ask? Simply because we have heard so much good things about Karats Jewelers from our friend who had shopped his engagement ring here as well and particularly their over-the-top customer service and incomparable expertise in custom jewelry design.
We were warmly welcomed and helped by Andy and Louise upon arrival. We also got to meet the entire staff and the store dog, Harley. Everyone was just soo nice here, we were treated as if we were a part of the family. There was not a single hint of pressure in the store, unlike many bigger jewelry stores where the salespeople shoot you once-overs. Karats Jewelers is a six generation expert jeweler , their store is filled with warmth, trust and dazzling rings, earrings, bracelets.. you name it, they will make it, totally custom! That truly says something in their expertise in custom jewelry design.
My cousin is a really picky person when it comes to teeny tiny details. Andy was super friendly and patient, and genuinely cared about making her feel special. He and Louise listened to all her needs, offered genuine advice, and sketched her dream ring matching perfectly with her ideas. Best of all, the price came out to be unbelievably reasonable for such excellent quality ring! Also, Karats Jewelers offers free life time care and cleaning! You can bring your jewelry in anytime to be checked, cleaned, polished, repaired, etc.
Our ring took about 14 days from the order date to complete. My cousin truly loves her dream ring! Support family businesses and get your custom made engagement ring at Karats Jewelers! The drive was surely worth it and coming from western Kansas we know what it is too work with local businesses. They represent first class service and selection and expertise. Thank YOU Karats for everything.
I was not familiar with Karats prior to my visit last week, but I will now go to them for my jewelry needs. The store is gorgeous and had the selection I was looking for. Service from the sales staff was fantastic. They cared about what was right fit for me.
I would recommend this place for anyone wanting a new piece of jewelry.
