We have been shopping at D Raphael since 1992. We have enjoyed the gorgeous, exotic and unusual items of jewelry that David so carefully and selectively procures and provides for his wonderful boutique. It's so charming to be greeted by his adorable bird. If you are looking for a beautifully crafted and eclectic piece, this is the shop for you. You will not be disappointed. Please don't change the boutique or ever leave Ludlow! David is a wonderful host, with a wealth of knowledge about the jewelry in his shop. Please Support our local proprietors!

Mr Rafael is pleasent, witty, and knowledgeable of the unique tasteful product he sells. In a business where patience is more and more a quality left to be desired in a shop keeper. Dave is as acomadating as an old friend... I'm looking forward to visiting that "New friend" often 'cause you'll never know what's new there if you don't check back frequently.

I went into D Raphael’s on 8/1/2013 for the purpose of getting my finger sized for my wedding ring. The owner came out and “pretended” to measure my finger with a tape measure and then joked about cutting it off in the back of the store with a table saw. His mood changed immediately after he pretended to measure my finger and he then told me that if I wanted a sizing it would be $10 and then I could go ahead and “get my ring on eBay or whatever.” Look, $10 to support local business, I would be okay with that, but the owner was really, very rude to me. I tried to walk out and he stopped me and went on and on about how he hates customers like me and his rent is very expensive. I told him that the ring was probably going to be an old family heirloom from India that I would not wear every day. He told me that “he didn't realize that I already had the ring.” He then tried to give me a jeweler rec and told me that, "these people won't steal jewels out of the ring." I am really shocked and appalled at the experience I had at this business and do not want anyone else who is excited about their wedding or any other occasion, going through the same thing. In addition to my experience, the reviews online for this place are terrible.

There is also the issue of the cleanliness of the place, my first impression was that the store was very dirty and a smelled of feces. And I realized that was due to the very large parrot that sits next to the register.

Buyer beware!

I bought a beautiful black onyx ring and necklace and the owner was cool until the onyx fell out of the setting a week later and notices that the gem in the ring was loose as well. I took it back to the store to see if the owner could fix it and said he did not recognize the jewelry at all. I pointed out the unique jewelry box he sold me too which I had with me and said they were sold everywhere. Nice jewelry but if it breaks or doesn't hold up he will deny he sold it to you or even recognition. The owner even went as far as telling me that the ring was weird and he sold it to me!!!

Rare and fine jewelry

The store is old and musty, but the jewelry is unique and high quality. If you are looking for real stones and something no one else has, this is the store for you.

Creepy

The title says it all. The guy who owns this place really creeped me out. Pangaea, just down the street is a much nicer store and has better jewelry.
