FR Review:
Dora's customers have depended upon her straightforward, helpful, efficient, jewelery assistance since 1987. She is said to have a remarkably positive, can-do attitude (if the request is at all possible) and the pricing is "consistently reasonable." She will do cz as well as top end diamonds, knowing that a happy customer means long term business. Many a customer have drawn a "sketch on a post-it" and remarkably the vision is realized, usually within a week or two. Dora is also excellent about repairs-- she figures it out and gets it done.

Dora's family has been in the jewelry business for several generations coming to the US by way of Russia to Afghanistan to Iran to Italy. Currently, there are six sisters, one brother and numerous uncles on the Street, so that if Dora does not have it, she either gets it or cast it expeditiously. Originally specializing in pearls, Dora traveled several times to the Far East on shopping expeditions and is particularly knowledgeable in this area. Customers applaud Dora for her warmth, reasonable viewpoint and excellent customer service.

Outstanding person to know. Dora is on the ball, honest and effective. Very flexible in quality, she is open the the higher quality, but her tendency is to go for the excellent value. Incredibly flexible and just plain nice. Been with her for so many years that I now consider her a friend.

I can always count on Dora. She is fast, reasonable and totally gets what I am trying for. And if it is not what I was attempting, she will do it again with appropriate timing and costs. Not pushy and always open to even the craziest ideas, I have been working with her for over 20 years. Part of my team.

Project Description & Comments:
Benefice was one of the first providers I approached in my search for an engagement ring, a category of products I knew nothing about at the time. They are located in one of a few dozens booths at a jeweler co-op on 5th Ave, and the scene is slightly confusing/intimidating for the uninitiated. However, Dora was very personable and approachable and made me feel at ease about the experience. She was very open to customizing her service to my relatively modest price range, and to search for both pre-made rings and loose stones that would work for me. She also offers custom settings once she has found a stone.
