Find your perfect engagement ring
Whether it's a simple solitaire mounting or a complex diamond-encrusted setting, for us, it comes down to design and craftsmanship.
We are aggregators of the world's finest brands, so you can expect nothign less when browsing our assortment of Swiss timepieces. Whether you're looking for a gift for someone else, or you're a seasoned timepiece collector shopping for yourself, you'll find the perfect watch here.
We have a long history of craftsmanship that continues today. We are jewelers in the true sense of the word, as we still manufacture and repair right here in our store.
Diamond Cellar Holdings began as a humble repair shop in 1947, and is now one of the largest independent stores in the United States. We pride ourselves on our professional staff of goldsmiths, designers, graduate gemologists and diamond certificate holders who make Donoho's a world-class jeweler.
When you need something truly unique and personal, or you just can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, our staff of goldsmith designers is here to help. With more than 300 years of experience in jewelry design and repair, they can create a piece of jewelry just for you.
It starts with a hand sketch, which is often rendered in three different views, in water color, to help the client visualize the finished piece.
From the sketch, a wax model is carved by hand, and any changes are made to the wax before it is cast in the final metal.
Computer Aided Design (CAD) has enabled quicker and more precise jewelry design. You still need a talented mind to concept the piece (and we have plenty), but CAD can reduce the time it takes to produce the finished piece.
A handcolored rendering is still valuable, as it is truer to size, and we are one of the few jewelry manufacturers in the country with 10 craftsmen on staff who can produce them.
We are fortunate to have a CAD specialist on staff— something very few retail jewelers can claim.

I have been married 46 years. About two years ago I noticed my engagement ring band had actually worn through from being rubbed by my wedding ring. It was very thin and I hoped maybe a jeweler could somehow reinforce my white gold band. As providence would have it, the jeweler who waited on me at the store RECOGNIZED the engagement ring setting! He even knew the design number AND he had the phone number of the manufacturer memorized. He said he was a salesman of engagement/wedding rings in the field before he came to work here. If anyone else had waited on me, perhaps we could never have been able to ID the manufacturer. This gentleman went in the back, called the manufacturer, established that this very same setting was still available and ordered it for me.
He suggested I upgrade the diamond while I had the chance. But my little .48 carat diamond was bought by my husband for $350 from Boxstruck's Jeweler in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1966. He worked all summer on a highway road crew at $3 an hour to earn the money to buy it. (no credit cards in those days) I would never change the diamond. But I would never go anywhere but the Diamond Cellar to have it "serviced" and saved!

Our family has a long history with Diamond Cellar Holdings.
My father bought my mom's wedding and engagement rings from Robert W. Johnson when the store was on South High Street, (and below street level). He later went back and bought himself a diamond watch. Each little diamond represented one of twelve numbers on the face of the watch. It was a beautiful watch.
In the early 1960's my dad took the watch back and had Robert W. Johnson use the diamonds to make my mother and I a pendant and earring set. I wore mine on my wedding day in 1964.
In the early 1970's my mom decided to upgrade her wedding set to a five stone band. She had Robert create a dinner ring using all the stones from the wedding set.
My dad passed away in 2006 and my mom passed away in 2013. They were married for 62 years. I still have the pendant and earring set and my daughter, Marla, has my mom's set and the dinner ring.
We are three generations of customers and have recommended your company to many people. I am attaching a photo of my pendant and earring set, and my parents, Preston and Marie Swiney. I would love to see our story featured in the magazine. If you would like photos of the dinner ring I can have my daughter e mail them to you. I have a new e mail address, below. Thanks for the invitation.
