I've mentioned quite a few things already, but in general, this was a great experience. As an earthy Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who went into the whole thing with a negative attitude towards what I saw as socially caving into De Beers marketing and exploitation--at best a kind of necessary evil--I left with a newfound appreciation for giving my loved one something that though socially constructed, can still be a promise, a shimmering, sparkly way to set the tone for a lifetime of magic together.
Bravo Sheila Bayes!
At SB, the settings I looked at were hands down way classier than those I had seen elsewhere. Simple yet elegant, I had a much harder time narrowing down the setting there because there were so many wonderful options (guys: it's a good problem to have; more choice is better). SB placed our heirloom diamond in the setting and it looks FANTASTIC. My fiancee loves loves loves her ring! It shimmers and sparkles and we both find ourselves mesmerized by it. It's truly stunning, and we owe that to the craftsmanship of the jewelers on staff at SB (Heather).
The best jewelry store in Lexington!! The friendliest and most honest sales people. Their jewelers can create anything you have your heart set on. 45 or so years of combined bench jeweler experience!
I'll be honest here, I LOVE jewelry, and Shelia Bayes always has the best. My wedding set is incredible, and I am in love with all the John Hardy and Lagos pieces I own now too. I mean, this is the one store I can get my husband to go to since he knows he'll always be steered in the right direction. The staff is just that good! A piece from Shelia Bayes is always a win!
Enter Rachel at Sheila Bayes: she knows her stuff and imparted her knowledge freely, treated me with respect, even upon hearing of my budget (I'm a teacher), and took the time to help me find an awesome ring, listening to my thoughts and concerns and taking them 100% into account. She''s funny and made me feel relaxed throughout a process that I had previously dreaded and found taxing. She was also willing to go above and beyond to help get a family heirloom diamond in another state shipped to SB once I had decided on a setting. I cannot say enough good things about her.
The selection is outstanding and for most every budget and the best part is that if you aren't sure what you need, the staff are experts and super-friendly!

3. Overall Experience
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my ring. I reviewed Shelia Bayes on Yelp too. Everyone should know how great the jewelry is and people who work here are. The lady knew exactly what I wanted, was so nice, and knew what she was doing. I was able to get a ring that I never thought I would be able to afford on our budget. Best experience - a little hard to find (that's the negative) But I am so glad that we came here. Thank you for everything Shelia Bayes Fine Jewelers.

Incredible! Highly recommended! I experienced the most outstanding service at Sheila Bayes during the process of creating an engagement ring for my girlfriend. They demystified the entire ring selection process and made me feel at ease about one of the biggest purchases I'll ever make. I wish I could give more than 5 stars -- this was quite possibly one of the best retail experiences I've had in my life. Why is Sheila Bayes so wonderful? Let me break it down:
Prior to going in to SB (eventually a friend of my mom recommended them), I went to a few other local jewelers and to one large chain store. The other local jeweler salespeople were competent but treated me in an aloof, brusque manner upon hearing of my budget. At the chain jewelry store, the salespeople never said much beyond "that looks great"--they clearly didn't know much about diamonds or jewelry beyond vague platitudes.
