Ruby and Diamond Engagement Ring (F Hinds Jewellers) Review with images

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesVery poor quality ring, dreadful customer service.

"An engagement ring was purchased in August 2009, but not given to me until November 2009 as my now husband had to pluck up courage first to ask me. The ring was ordered in at a size J. On placing on my finger it seemed a little bit big which I put down to my losing some weight, and as I couldn't bear to part with it I kept it. A fortnight ago I discovered the ring had misshapen and took back to the store. After a very brief look at it, (they didn't ..." Read review

F. Hinds repair service

AdvantagesReasonable cost

DisadvantagesSlow

"Although i have been into F. Hinds a few times this review is about their repair service they now offer in some stores.

Watch Repair Service

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesAttempting to Over charge for a service

They tried to get me to pay nearly a £100.00 for a service, and lied to me, saying that the battery was fine and still had power, and that it was the watch that needed fixing. I took my watch to an independent watch repairer who told me it just ..." Read review

When things go wrong. Go straight to customer service at H/Office

AdvantagesBeautiful Christening Mugs with stork handles

DisadvantagesBeing a Mug and engraving being computerised, time not accurate

"I Bought a Christening mug in March 2013 for my Grandson's Christening in April. Had it engraved but when it came back, the time was wrong(clock face with hands) and I couldn't see the writing as it was too small. Shop sent it back and said they would redo the time and they wouldn't charge for the rest of the written information. Went to collect it and the time was wrong again and the name date etc. had not been done as they now said I had to pay ..." Read review
