Shane Co is pretty expensive, but you do get very good customer service.... I bought some jewelry there couple of years ago for my wife's birthday, had some problems with the set I bought, but Shane Co took care of us.... quality and service are great, but prices are pretty steep compared to other places....

If u looking for Dison , this company does not exist .... it is a scam , this company -= Shaneco , THEY ARE THEY ASSOCIATE IN THE BANKRUPCY SCAM .... Poor good company and honnest company in Antwerp , Mumbai , Tel Aviv .... u will run long time to get or see your money back , the bangkrupcy plan is a 3year planning .... Now easaly the company will cheat all the landlord who leasing the space ,... 1/2 of the store will be closed So stock will come ONLY 10 Maximum stores , than the company will be save ... But some agency already looking at this : CRYSTAL is not so clear , and Sun Trust could become "Dark untrustuble"...... this Bankrupcy is a BIG conspiracy to cheat

Maybe if you spoke decent English and even half of the crap you said made sense, people would consider you a little more reputable. Your poorly written postings seem more shady than you are trying to make the Shane Co out to be.

did you know that there is a 3000% markup on jewelry I know this is a fact. why do you think they have 75% off sales at times to get rid of old inventory.

A couple of years ago, I was bored and sent Tom Shane an email and let him know that the radio commercials he was doing were terrible and really annoyed most people that I know. I tried to tell him that he needed to stop that boring voice shiz quickly or he was going to suffer some hard consequences but no! Couldn't listen to me... Instead, he just added to the commercials that he knew he was annoying as if it was some kind of funny joke. Well, Tommy boy, I guess you should pay attention a little more! I never bought anything there because of it- when I turn on the radio I want to listen to some music and not some old grandpa with a four minute commercial.

Besides, when a low priced jewelry chain like Friedman's shuts down, you know times are hard!

If you want to screw these jewelery stores, buy fake diamonds and keep your mouth shut.

Looks like he's posting from Thailand. Why would you expect decent english? I give credit to anyone who can speak more than one language. Wish I could.

I know this is too late to post since the full story was ...wow...made 3 years ago.

Anyhow, this Jerry guy might have posted his comment from Thailand. But, definitely he is not Thai. He tried to discredit ShaneCo so I am figuring he must have been a foreigner who might have worked for Mr. Shane in Bangkok years ago and got kicked out.

Why do I know (for sure) he is not Thai? I was working there before and I got kicked out too. Damn!!
