Rose Jewelers is proud to be Kalamazoo’s engagement ring specialist since 1980.
Hello, Jim Rose here. Let’s be honest, most people don’t know diamonds and jewelry, aside from what our parents tell us and a little googling. If you choose to work with me, it’s going to be a little different than your traditional showcase store. I’m not a salesman, I’m a craftsman. Instead of looking for manufactured brands to sell, we spent the last 40 years vetting out various suppliers for better diamonds, gemstones, and metals, as well as educating myself on lab grown and alternative options. We build a majority of our pieces in house which allows us to control the quality, design, and craftsmanship. When we create a piece with you, we want it to be able to handle their lifestyle, as well as capture their personality.
Education is always free here. If you are just getting your feet wet and just want some knowledge, I’m always happy to chat. If you want a little more in depth conversation, feel free to set up and appointment and we will sit down and go over the details. I look forward to working with you.
The Rose Jewelers engagement ring advantage
When comparing apples to apples, our prices are going to be hard to beat. This is simply because we do not have the overhead that the larger stores do, and we don’t push the extras you don’t need.
When we give you a price, it’s going to be cost of the piece. There won’t be added costs for cleaning, sizing, warranties, soldering, or any of the little nickel and dime items that come with it. We take care of our customers, because we want to create a lifelong relationship.
Free services on engagement ring purchased in house:
Lifetime prong tightening
Express repair services
Free scratch removal and buffing
Discounted Rhodium plating (If needed)
All of our diamonds and gemstones are conflict free, and all of our rings are made from 100% recycled and refined gold.
The biggest advantage is having the jeweler that is building your piece help design it. Ill ensure it’s made to last.
Our unique engagement ring process
Step 1. Choose a mounting: We’ve got thousands of options for you, and all of them can be adjusted and customized to meet your vision. Whether you have no idea what you’re looking for, an idea in your head, or have dozens of ideas saved to Pinterest that could all be winners, we can accommodate your needs.
We have 2 ways of choosing mountings:
1. We work with a US based company that we have worked with for over 30 years that has a lot of pre-designed mountings available to choose from. All of the designs are customizable to accommodate the different stone cuts and sizes, and are ready to order. We than do the stone setting and finish work in house and you are on your way with a beautiful piece in typically around 2 weeks.

2. I will work with you to custom design the perfect engagement ring. I have designed pieces as simple as a solitaire, all the way up to dragons backs and tree replications, so let your imagination run! These pieces will be cast, set, and finished in house. The bonus to this is you are part of the design process every step of the way. From concept, to 3d Render, to printed model, to finished piece, we will work together to create a personal piece.
Step 2. Choose a stone: This is where we stand out. We work with diamond cutters and wholesalers across the nation, and have narrowed it down to a few that provide superb cuts on incredible materials. In a world that’s in a race to the bottom, we prefer to stand out and shine. I will help guide you to the perfect center piece. I only ask you come in with an idea on shape, and a budget. From there I will provide you options and let you choose which stone best suites your need. Whether you want natural, lab grown, or imitation, we can provide.
Step 3. Match a band: Once you are ready for the bands, we’ve got you covered. Most of our mountings already have a band that is designed to match up perfectly with the engagement ring, but if you have other ideas we can gladly accommodate. Whether your looking for a simple gold band to add some character, or a diamond band to accent the center stone, we can make sure that the completed set looks perfect when finished up. And when you buy a wedding band from Rose Jewelers, we solder them together for you after your wedding at no charge.
Reviews from our Michigan engagement ring customers
The best! I worked with them on my (now) wife’s engagement ring, and it was perfect. I am 100% sure that I couldn’t have gotten it right without the help of Jim. I’d trust no other jeweler in town to give such fair and honest price and service.

Fantastic experience! Jim guided me into the perfect engagement ring for my now fiancé. Even after I suggested we move up in size (which would have made him more money) he insisted that the stone he had found for me was the one I should get. And he was right.
– Paul J., Kalamazoo, MI
These guys were absolutely amazing! I am so happy I went here. I got a wedding ring done that used the stones from my husband’s Grandma’s wedding ring. It came out perfect- infinity band style with her stones 🙂 Priced very reasonably for a custom made ring. I just picked it up today after getting it soldered/polished and it looks PERFECT/brand new! Thank you so much Rose Jewelers, I will highly recommend you to everyone I know!
