Why Cincinnati LOVES Richter Rings
Why have we been Cincinnati’s go-to for getting engaged for the past 125+ years?
Our customers explain it best…
experience was incredible!
“I could not be more pleased with the experience I had engagement ring shopping at Richter & Phillips.
I never once felt pressured to purchase… While looking at the curated selection of diamonds, Eric walked me through the differences in the grading. He gave me unbiased advise, even recommending me to buy the cheaper diamond… The selection of the setting was simple, and Eric worked with me to accommodate any modifications I desired.
Richter & Phillips is undoubtedly a company that values its relationships with its customers. I am excited for the opportunity to introduce my fiancé to the wonderful people that made the magic happen. Beyond grateful for you all, Justin”

a few more love notes…
“I could not say enough good things about my experience with Richter & Phillips. I worked with Heather to find the perfect engagement ring. Heather could not of been more helpful throughout the whole process. The whole team provided an extraordinary experience. What a place!”

“amazed by the beauty…”
“…George helped me understand the process of creating a ring and educated me on the options I had in all aspects of ring purchasing. He offered his opinions, but encouraged me to work within my budget. After a diamond was selected, the ring was crafted in less than 3 weeks. The ring turned out amazing. My girlfriend (now wife) was amazed by the ring’s beauty. I had a great experience at Richter & Phillips and plan to seek them out for future jewelry and watch purchases.”

“…open & honest!”
“We went in without a clue what to do. Needing a ring for me and my fiancé. Heather was so incredibly helpful and kind! We had so much fun. She made it so relaxing, easy and 0 judgement. Didn’t feel pressured at all and she was very open and honest about the process. We were very intimidated walking in since this was a new experience for us but we couldn’t have asked for a better person to help! We are so in love with our rings and couldn’t have gone to a better experience. Highly recommend this place…”
