We were referred to Barbara by a couple of close friends who purchased their engagement rings from her. My fiancé knew exactly what she wanted but I was clueless on how to shop for a diamond ring! Barbara made the entire process so seamless and helped to design my fiancé’s dream ring! We live in Plano and Barbara was kind enough to drive to Dallas to meet with us to show several different stones and settings. During the 3 weeks it took to make the ring, Barbara kept in constant communication with me during the multiple steps up to delivery. Not only was Barbara extremely knowledgeable, but she made the entire experience fun from start to finish! Both my fiancé and I couldn’t be more pleased with the finished product! We had such a positive experience that we will continue to refer our friends to Barbara for years to come!Aron M.
Why go to a generic jewelry store, when you can go to Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault! Seriously! She’s an amazing person. Super sweet and listens to what you have to say. You won’t be disappointed. She does not compromise and makes sure you are getting the best quality for prices cheaper than the diamond stores at the mall or the person who says they are going to “hook you up”. No BS here. She knows her stuff. I’m going back in a couple of months to pick out a diamond. I was very elated about my last purchase for my girlfriend.
Went back to Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault to buy the perfect engagement ring! Barbara helped me picked out every aspect of the ring I wanted. She was patient and attentive with me throughout the whole process. Barbara then put together all the information and designed a custom engagement ring that turned out to be unbelievable. I thought a custom ring would be pricey, but not at all! Very affordable! Cheaper than what you would find at Robbin Brothers. The ring is absolutely gorgeous! When proposing to my fiancé, she couldn’t stop crying because of how beautiful it looks. Now I have an issue of my fiancé paying more attention to the ring than me. Barbara Parker’s work is the best! No doubt about it.
After meeting the girl of my dreams, my soulmate, I knew your everyday OTC ring just wouldn’t symbolize my love for her. I needed something special. So I reached out to some old contacts from NYC, Manhattan celebrity Jewelers. They completely failed to help me. Michael Raven who was recommended to me by a friend Veronica acted like I was a bother. But a friend of a friend put me in touch with Barbara. She treated me as if I was her only client. We picked out a gorgeous Fire Cushion stone. She had a custom Halo setting made just for me. The ring was out of this world, and at an amazing price. The only thing more amazing than the ring itself was the level of service Barbara provided. She should be everyone’s first stop.Brandon S.
I’ve known the Parker family for quite a while, but never bought any jewelry from Barbara. First off, buying an engagement ring is no easy task. As a guy, I didn’t know anything about cut, clarity, quality…as I type this out…I honestly still don’t :). I had an idea of what my fiancé wanted, so I consulted Barbara after watching a video she posted on FB. She basically held my hand via the internet. She sent me information on the diamond company, helped me through the process of picking out the stone, and whatever details after for the ring. I physically didn’t touch the ring until it was completed. I got updates by the second as she helped me picked the stone and got mock up drawings of the ring as she was getting them. The final product speaks for itself. My fiancé loves the ring and can’t wait to start the wedding band process with her. You will NOT be disappointed.Ken S.
I was referred to Barbara Parker from a close friend. We live in Southern California and communicated by phone and email. Both Sarah and Barbara are very lovely people. Their caring and high level of detail made me feel confident in working with them. They provided excellent communication, much appreciated recommendations based on our samples that we provided to them, high level of service and very fair pricing. Our rings arrived on time. I will definitely be purchasing from them again. I highly recommend and will be referring my friends & family to Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault.Marc S.
Barbara Parker was referred to me by a close friend of ours. I reached out to Barbara and she couldn’t wait to help me find the perfect stone. She gave me a thorough education on the process and grading of stones.
The entire experience from introduction to creating a custom engagement ring and receiving the final product could not have been easier. I decided to go with a stunning GIA certified FireCushion diamond and two baguette side stones wrapped in platinum.
There are only a few select jewelers authorized to offer these stones. They can’t be found online or in retail stores. The majority of the stones out there do not make the cut. The FireCushion is extraordinarily rare.
I live in San Francisco California and Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault is located in Conroe Texas. The distance between the two of us was not an issue. If you can’t make it to the Diamond Vault definitely do not let distance discourage you. Barbara will easily guide you through the entire process, work hard to get you the best deal possible and blow your mind.
I asked my fiancé to marry me at Saint Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle. She melted said yes and now I have the daily pleasure of admiring my beautiful fiancé and this gorgeous ring that still shocks me every time I see it.
Looking forward to Barbara creating our custom wedding bands. Give her a call I promise you will not be disappointed.Chris K.
Sarah and Miss Barbara are awesome! They have always been easy going with us in our shopping for wedding bands and gifts for our wedding party. They’re always pleasant and kind. I’ve recommended co-workers and friends to them and would recommend anyone go to them for your jewelry needs!Troy M.
Barbara has created a couple pieces for me now, and each time my expectations are exceeded and I am beyond thrilled!! The quality of the diamonds and the details of the jewelry are superior. You will not only be happy with the pieces she creates for you, her level of professionalism and customer service is top-notch. She and Sarah are extremely responsive, listen to your vision and execute perfectly. Even though we are not in the same state, she and her team were able to help me design my ring, and I felt confident and comfortable throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault!Cindi K.
Barbara came well recommended and did not disappoint. We were able to get a quality diamond for a fraction of what we would have if we went elsewhere. We drove all the way from Ft Worth all because we were very comfortable with her and her services. Most definitely recommend to anyone in the market for fine quality jewelry.Bryan A.
Barbara Parker is quite literally as good as it gets! Barbara was able to work with my husband to find the perfect diamond to propose to me with and from there we worked with her to design the perfect rings. First of all, I’ve been a professional snowboarder for 13 years, and it was absolutely necessary that we design a ring that I could wear all the time whether I was competing in the Winter Olympics, surfing in Nicaragua, hanging at home, or attending a red carpet event. I also love chunky, unique looking rings, and so together Barbara, my husband, and I created the perfect rings for our life and style. After almost 8 years we couldn’t love our rings more, plus it does feel pretty good to be constantly complimented on how gorgeous and unique our rings are. When you work with Barbara you get a friend for life that is always there for you. And after 8 years we know how important it is to have Barbara as the gate keeper of the rings! She reaches out to us so that she can clean them, and she was there for us during the worst case scenario, when I lost my ring. She helped make a super stressful and sad situation, fluid and easy, and designed a ring just as good, if not better, than the original because this one now has a hidden G woven into it! Rings are symbols of the love and commitment that we have for one another, and to have Barbara as the creator and designer of these rings has added to the happiness and love that these rings hold.Gretchen B.
I first met Barbara Parker through a close friend of mine. It was probably one of the best referrals that my wife and I could have ever received. At that point I was young, on a budget, and incredibly intimidated by going into a jewelry store (as most guys are). From the second I walked into her office it was obvious that her objective wasn’t to just sell me jewelry, but it was about making the experience incredible and building a relationship. It’s rare that you instantly trust that someone has your best interest at heart but that’s truly how Barbara operates; and it’s genuine. We ended up finding the perfect diamond (on a tight budget) which I used to propose to my now wife. After proposing, Barbara worked with me and my wife to take that diamond and make the most incredible custom rings (which actually ended up in Brides Magazine). Barbara asked us all of the right questions and through her creative vision and ours we made two beautiful rings that we absolutely love. Since then, she’s helped keep our rings looking beautiful, made repairs when necessary (We’re active and are really hard on our rings), and even helped us with an insurance claim after my wife’s ring went missing. With her help and knowledge we were able to get the ring replaced and the new ring is just as beautiful as the first. Barbara is the full package. With her amazing customer service (I can’t express how important that is for making this process easy and fun), and beautiful design sense, Barbara has been the first and only person we’ve recommended to friends when it comes to jewelry.
We are so lucky that our good friend introduced us to her and hopefully with this review we can help others have the same incredible experience we have had.
Go to Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault! She truly amazing and helped me find the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. My girlfriend loved my gift, in which Barbara picked out herself. She takes her time to get to know you and figures out exactly what you need. I will definitely go back to her again and recommend her to my friends and family. Very affordable with tremendous quality!Yong P.
WOW! What a team! Sarah and Barbara of Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault is the place to buy your engagement ring or any other jewelry, I know I will never buy from anywhere else. My girlfriend has put a lot of trust in me; my only instructions were 1) round cut and 2) halo. After searching months for the perfect engagement ring, it only took Sarah one phone call and a few pictures to know what I considered to be the prefect ring. That phone call was Wednesday morning, and by Wednesday afternoon I had it picked out. The following Monday my parents, future in-laws and I went to see the diamond I was purchasing. Feeling nothing but a warm welcome and a nice cold beer (I may have had three), Sarah began to fill us with knowledge that my momma or mother-in-law weren’t even aware of. There’s so much more to know than just the 4 C’s that the online jewelers push. Between Sarah and Barbara I was put at ease that this custom ring would make my angels heart melt. I can see why Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault doesn’t advertise, they don’t need too, I have told everyone and there momma about the experience I had, even complete strangers. If you get lucky enough to come across Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault, stop your search and know that they will do everything and then some to make sure you and your recipient will be taken care of like no other place can provide. THANK YOU SO MUCH SARAH AND BARBARA!!!!!! I can’t wait to give this ring to my high school sweetheart, I feel like the wait is even harder than the months I spent searching. Once again, thank you Sarah and Barbara for making this experience so special and memorable. I forgot to mention the price, it’s a fraction of what the stores and online jewelers were offering. I ended up getting something for a 1/3 of the cost of what I thought I was going to have to spend. #BESTJEWELEREVERRobert G.
My husband and I are extremely blown away by the customer service and quality of the items that we have purchased from Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault. Barbara has a keen attention to detail, and truly cares about making sure that each customer is thrilled to wear their custom jewelry. You will not find customer service anywhere else. She tailors every piece of jewelry to the customer, and doesn’t stop until it is absolutely perfect. We could not recommend her more!Brittany K.
Working with Barbara and Sarah was a very personalized experience. Barbara is not only a talented designer, but her knowledge and attention to detail is matched only by her desire to please her clients. I highly recommend Barbara!Paul S.
Offering quality, design, knowledge and personalized service that is unmatched in the marketplace – It explains why her clients are worldwide, and why she’s such a treasure to have in our area! I admire her work every day (on my left hand!) and highly recommend her!Jacci K.
Barbara is amazing to work with and was able to help us create the perfect engagement ring! She is responsive, honest, and really goes above and beyond to help make your vision come to life. I couldn’t be happier with my BP creation and look forward to working with her again soon!Patty S.
I’ve been buying jewelry from her for 10 years and she ALWAYS comes through even when I’m being difficult. The very best!Joe T.
If you are thinking of running out and shop for jewelry, stop and watch this first. Barbara Parker will save you money and help personalize the experience you are trying to capture. I first bought Jen’s engagement ring and wedding band back in 2003. Recently, one of the prongs on the diamond setting wore down a bit which needed repair and Barbara had a FedEx return label made up in minutes. The rings were out for repair for only a few days and are now back sparkly and back to the way they looked the day we originally got them.Steve B.
We loved working with Barbara and her team! She went above and beyond to create exactly what we envisioned in an engagement ring. She is extremely responsive, honest, and has an eye for creating beautiful rings. While we don’t live in Texas, we were able to work with Barbara by phone and email and could not be happier with the entire process. We highly recommend Barbara and look forward to working with her again soon! 🙂Jenna K.
Very helpful, no pressures to do more than you want. Barbara will work with you and treat you as a close friend. Will go out of her way to make sure you are satisfied with the end result.
Very reasonably priced for the unique piece of art that she helped guide me through and I would definitely be a returning customer.Aaron M.
Barbara is amazing! I highly recommend using her!Brittany S.
Barbara and her team are top notch!! There is no one I would ever trust more with designing such timeless pieces of jewelry for the most important milestones in our lives. Thank you for everything!Brian P.
I was treated as family. Bought our custom engagement ring from out of state and we were so happy we just kept buying stuff! I won’t shop anywhere else for jewelry.Melissa T.
This was my first time shopping with Barbara. Not being local, I was a little worried about how everything would work out logistically. I can honestly say it couldn’t have been easier! Not only was her communication fast but she was also generous enough to ship me the exact diamond so that I could inspect it myself. I (and my fiancée) could not be happier with the final product, it turned out perfect! She has certainly won my business from here on out!Linda H.
Barbara Parker’s Diamond Vault did a miraculous job restoring and resizing my 22 year old yellow and white gold wedding ring. The ring was too small and really beat up from daily wear. I just received my ring today and it looks and fits like the day I was married. It is absolutely amazing. Thank you!Doug W.
I have known Barbara longer than either of us would like to admit. If you are looking for fine jewelry then this is where you need to be!Bob J.

Barbara is amazing! I just got engaged two days ago with Barbara’s help. She helped my fiancé and I build the PERFECT ring for me. She listened to everything we wanted and didn’t want and agreed with our plan. She was just amazing and I was so happy I got to meet her! Thank you so much for your help making my dream engagement ring. I hope we see you soon! 🙂Twiggy R.
Barbara does absolutely beautiful work with all the jewelry I have from her. I consistently get compliments from the engagement ring and weddings bands she made us! They are so beautiful! She has also made me a beautiful custom necklace which means a lot to me! Thank you for everything and look forward to working with you again and again and again!!!Annica B.
