Customers Share Their Reviews & Experience of KARATS Jewelers

I had the pleasure of helping customer Brian Morris at KARATS with his purchase of a beautiful Breitling watch. As I helped Brian for the first time I learned about him and his family and we soon realized we had a lot in common. Our business is one where relationships are fostered for life. We joy in helping others achieve their dreams they have.

Brian wrote us an amazing review sharing his experience of the Breitling watch he purchased from KARATS. We are grateful for wonderful customers who become friends and are now a part of the KARATS family.

Thank You Brian for the kind words. It means a lot that you shared your experience of KARATS

KARATS Review from Brian Morris :

I put a lot of weight into reviews, but rarely write any myself. However, the experience I had with Andy and Karats Jewelers was so positive, I wanted to make sure and submit a positive review.

“I was in the market for a watch. I am a researcher and “over-analyzer” and can have a hard time making up my mind sometimes. Andy (the owner) was phenomenal when assisting me with my questions and helping give me his insight and professional opinion.

The customer service was tremendous and they made sure I was happy…definitely going above and beyond.

When I was there a couple of other gentleman, who were obviously repeat watch customers, came in and were greeted with a handshake and hug. I was able to visit with them and could tell their strong connection to the store and the ownership.

Repeat business is the best sign of someone you want to buy from and it is obvious they treat their customers so well they come back.

I strongly recommend Karats Jewelers and their team. You won’t be disappointed.”

Customer Stories: KARATS Reviews of Akshay Andy Anand

Dear Fana, 

Our story is the typical American fairy tale. We met in high school, dated through college (Go Kansas Jayhawks!), moved in together after college and we just took all of those big ‘firsts’ together, hand in hand.  After we had settled in to our new place she kept giving me those little hints, well, some less subtle than others, but she was telling me that it was time for that next milestone: marriage. Like most men I found myself anxiety ridden – what if I buy the wrong ring? What if I pay too much? What if, what if, what if!? I could secretly get ideas about what she styles she likes but these are overwhelming times for a man to say the least. 

I then decided to do some research online and slowly but surely I was looking for a local jewelry store in the Kansas City metro area. Based on the number of positive reviews and stories I read I decided to stop in to Karats Jewelers in Overland Park, Kansas and I could not have been happier. I met with the store owner Akshay Andy Anand and was given a very personalized experience as we worked through their vast array of engagement rings (largest in the area!). After viewing a number of brands/ products we happened upon ‘the one’. It was made by a brand called Fana and it was exactly everything she was looking for to the T, as they say. Thanks to Akshay Andy Anand’s assistance I was able to secretly get her finger size and with that we got the order placed. Fana made her ring super quick and Akshay Andy Anand got it to me in no time. And then came the nerve racking part of popping the question!

It took a few days but the plan materialized and her surprise was ready. We took a trip to Chicago and stayed downtown at a fancy old hotel. In our room, on an upper balcony overlooking a neon lite city-scape, I was able to sneak up and with a clear air of surprise I asked the most beautiful person I ever met to spend the rest of their life with me. She said yes and I put that beautiful Fana ring from KARATS Jewelers onto her finger and it never looked more radiant. Thank you Fana and KARATS Jewelers, you helped make a dream come true.

With the steel Breitling Navtimer available at KARATS in the Kansas City market is priced at $7600 on crocodile strap or $8350 on the bracelet. It is indeed an amazing timepiece that has high reviews from many watch pro’s.

Paul Tacorian Visits KARATS

It was a pleasure to host Paul Tacorian at KARATS on his visit to Kansas City. Paul, CEO at Tacori is a valuable member of our designer brands that we proudly feature. KARATS success wouldn’t be possible without our friends and partners.

Before Paul visited KARATS, I invited him over to my house for breakfast and spending time with a valued friend. His friendship to me and KARATS means a lot and our business is one of relationships. With customers and vendors alike.

To many more wonderful years with the Tacorian’s and the Tacori family. Cheers 2018 and beyond.

Why Platinum ? A Post from Tacori.com

I thought to share the importance of Why Platinum? Our friends at Tacori have done a great job in explaining Why Platinum is a better metal. This post is from one of their Blogs. You can visit the link to the actual Blog Post at the bottom of this page. In the spirit to promote a better metal I fully voice the same recommendations as our friends at Tacori have done.

 

You have many choices to make when you’re selecting your engagement ring and wedding bands, and your decision about which metal to wear is one of the most important.

There are pros and cons to every metal option, including personal preference and pricing. And no matter which metal you select, we know that you want to make an informed decision about the best metal for you. If you’re debating between white gold and Platinum, here a few of the reasons why Platinum is the premium choice for Tacori engagement rings and wedding bands.

To start, Platinum’s naturally white color won’t fade or change color over time. This means, no maintenance is required to maintain a white hue over the lifetime of the ring.

Compared to a white gold ring, it’s important to note that gold itself is naturally occurring in nature as a soft yellow metal. In order to change the color from yellow to create a white gold ring, the natural yellow gold must be mixed with other white metals – also known as an “alloy” – to lessen the yellow appearance and strengthen the gold into a formula that can be used for jewelry purposes. After the white gold alloy is created, the initial white color of a white gold ring does often fade over time, and requires maintenance over the life of the ring to restore the white color to a showroom finish. This is different from a Platinum ring, which will not require maintenance to maintain its white hue.

Additionally, the metal purity of Platinum is approximately 95% pure Platinum, compared to a white gold alloy, which is approximately 75% gold for an 18K gold alloy ring. This purity makes a Platinum ring not only more dense with this precious metal (as it’s 95% pure Platinum), but it is also naturally hypoallergenic and ideal for those with sensitive skin. This is different from white gold, which is known to contain other metals in its alloy which may trigger an allergic reaction.

Additionally, this natural density and weight of Platinum – as Platinum is 25% heavier than gold – are characteristics that make it more durable than other jewelry metals. Platinum does not wear away and holds precious stones firmly and securely. In short, Platinum prongs are better protection for diamonds.

Like all precious metals, Platinum scratches. But when these scratches occur on a Platinum piece, they actually create a natural, rich patina on the ring that strengthens the metallurgical properties of the piece.

However, the scratch on a Platinum piece is merely a displacement of the metal and none of its volume is lost — unlike gold, which can flake away if scratched and wear thin over the lifetime of a ring. If a Platinum ring is dented (because it is a softer metal than gold), Platinum can often be reshaped, as none of its original volume is lost.

In addition to its strength and density, Platinum has another remarkable quality – pliability. Platinum is so pliable, that just one gram of the metal can be drawn to produce a fine wire over one mile (almost 2 km) long. This quality has enabled jewelers to create some amazing versatile Platinum designs, which could not be fashioned from other precious metals. And because Tacori’s designs are often so intricate with the hand-crafted details, Platinum is the optimal metal for our craftsmanship to truly shine.

In our opinion, everything looks better in Platinum.

To A New Year

2015 was a great year for KARATS in a lot of aspects. Not only we won the Best Of Weddings from The Knot 3 years in a row ( 2014, 2015 and now 2016) we once again became the ONLY Tacori Platinum Partner for 2016 in Kansas. Verragio also renewed our Exclusive Verragio Premiere Boutique Status as its only store in entire Kansas City Metro. As KARATS continued to grow we also added prestigious watch brands such as Tudor, Longines, Luminox and more.

We did also endure some setbacks which included the 2 robberies at KARATS within 60 days. However, those setbacks did not keep us or our loyal customers from making it a great year. It actually has helped us further in implementing some changes, adding new and expanded security systems and close coordination with the great city of Overland Park we live in. It was also amazing to see how much the community cared for us and outpoured their love and support to KARATS and us. Family, friends, vendors and the City came forward to extend the most helping hand we have ever seen. To them we will always be grateful.

Personally, I’m also grateful for the growth and the opportunities we have had to continue growing KARATS. I have always believed in a great saying “The Journey To A Thousand Miles Begins With A Single Step”. KARATS is indeed a dream. It is larger than life and our American Dream that we have build with love and dedication. There is a fundamental difference between businesses. Those at the helm who see it merely as a business will be complacent but those that treat it like a love and passion will continue to invest in its growth for the greater good. Jim Collins in his book Good To Great said it right “Their ambition is first and foremost for the institution, not themselves.” As we continue to turn the pages of 2016 I cannot wait to see what is in-store for us. I am looking forward anxiously to what this year brings in many fronts personally and professionally.

Happy New Years and make this year the greatest ever. Our dreams are dreams for all of us to achieve together. Together we move mountains.
