I simply cannot overstate how impressed I am with Harry Merrill & Son, Inc. After moving to Philadelphia from Atlanta, I was in search of a local jeweler to do some custom work and relied on internet reviews to guide me. From my first correspondence with Robert to my last conversation with Nicole, I have been consistently amazed at their ability to balance professionalism and expertise with friendliness and approachability. I used Harry Merrill & Son, Inc. to design a custom pendant from the materials in a topaz ring passed down to me from my mother. Throughout the design process I was treated with the utmost patience and concern. They worked with me until the design was exactly what I wanted. The old ring my mom gave me was ugly and outdated, but now I have a brand new, stunning necklace to enjoy for years. I also plan on wearing the necklace on my wedding day as part of the ??something old something new, something borrowed something blue? tradition. The blue topaz will add a special touch to my ensemble.
My boyfriend Andrew also used Harry Merrill & Son, Inc. to custom design my engagement ring. I consider myself an incredibly picky, hard-to-please individual with unique tastes, and none of the rings I saw in stores were good enough. By working with Harry Merrill & Son, Inc. Andrew was able to custom design the ring of my dreams. He spent months going over potential design options with Robert and Nicole before settling on the perfect plan. One of my favorite details on the ring is the custom engraving which was done in much more detail than is available anywhere else on the market. Even though we were working with a tight budget, Robert and Nicole treated us like we were their VIPs and never pressured us to spend more.
When I received the ring, I realized that I had incorrectly informed Andrew of my ring size. The ring was just a little too big, but I didn??t say anything for a few days. I was afraid to cause a problem and tried to convince myself that the ring really did fit. Finally I broke down and told him about the problem. I panicked and thought that the ring could not possibly be resized due to the intricate engraving along the entire band. The very next morning, he called Nicole and she kindly reassured him that the ring could be professionally resized and the engraving could be touched up??all free of charge. In my opinion, Robert and Nicole are miracle workers. I am so happy to have found such a wonderful jeweler, and I look forward to doing all my business with Harry Merrill & Son, Inc. in the future.
The Tomato Bistro is the perfect place to go when you're not sure what you want for dinner. The menu is split up into small plates, salads, soups, and pizzas, and the portion sizes are small enough to try items from every section. The variety of dishes allows you try a few bites of several different flavor profiles and satisfy all your cravings. I especially enjoyed the Aztec Shrimp, Goat Cheese Salad, and Chicken Cutlet Pizza. They also offer whole wheat crust for their pizzas which is a great option that's hard to find. I'm looking forward to going back soon and trying more items on the menu!
