I have been a customer of Justin Bortz for the past ten years and have received excellent service along with outstanding craftsmanship on many items designed. The store is inviting and the merchandise is unique and current in fashion. I would highly recommend Justin as he is extremely personable and goes out of his way to meet the customer's needs.
One of the most delightful shopping experiences I have ever had was at Midnight Swan Designs. I mentioned a ring that I had seen to my husband. He, being such a sensitive man, remembered and suggested we go to see it. We felt welcome the moment we walked in. Justin made us a cappucino and let us sit and relax while deciding whether we wanted to take that special ring home. The shank was replaced in order to size it and that took less than a week and now, thanks to Justin, I have this new angelic ring.

Barbara and I have been cutomers of Justin's for about 10 years and in that time we have had him repair, appraise and design Barbara's jewelry. We have been pleased with all the services and have found Justin to be a very professional, courteous, warm and personable guy. We recommend him to all of our friends.

It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of thanks for the excellent service and craftsmanship that you have provided us over the years. Citing one example, the execution of the design of the custom pin that you made for us is absolutely beautiful. In addition, whenever comments are made about "that beautiful jewelry" we are quick to point out that it was made by Justin Bortz.

Justin did a terrific job interpreting and improving upon a necklace design I discussed with him. He was patient and skilled in transferring the design onto paper so I could acutlaly see it and we could make changes. Also, the emerald cut diamond he found is perfect.
I brought Justin five stones that I owned and loved, yet were unset. they varied in shape, size, and color. He formed them into a unique, stunning piece of jewelry that holds a beautiful elegance. I am now able to wear, touch and enjoy them. Justin's ability to bring forth the life, richness and luster of jewelry is truly spiritually inspiring.
Justin Bortz is an artist and a craftsman whose jewelry style is unique, original and refreshing. He is one of a kind and a real asset to Berks County.
We have worked with Justin to make a piece to match a family heirloom and also to turn a vision into reality. He has always created exactly what we wanted and the designs have always received compliments from our friends.

Judy and I wish to thank you for the fine design and craftsmanship that were applied to her engagement ring. It is exactly what she had envisioned, elegant, tasteful, and just plain beautiful. We both are pleased with the quality of the center diamond; it is magnificent in color and clarity. The side pear-shaped diamonds are set in such a way as to extend the beauty of the center stone. The setting is also just right. The center stone is not too high above the finger, and a wedding band will still fit properly. We are please and happy with the work you did. Our trip to your shop was not straightford. Judy and I had visited six jewelers and Judy went to at least two others. There was a wide variety of diamonds and settings and our stop at your shop was on the hope we would find something different and special. We appreciate your ability to listen to our requirements, some stated directly and some we could only imply. From those came a design, a set of three beautiful diamons, and ultimately a beautiful ring Judy is proud to wear.

Beautiful antique watch I bought a couple of years ago, really want to wear it to my wedding but it's too big. I took it to 5 different Jewelers, including a watchsmith, only to be told it is impossible to remove links. Frustrated but desperately determined, I tried one last place - Bortz Jewelers. He took care of it in less than 5 minutes. Thank you, Justin Bortz!
Justin, I just wanted to take the time to put in writing how thankful I am for the work you did on my Wife's engagement ring. The repairs you made were done in a timely manner, and skillfully carried out. The ring is truly better than new. Most importantly, my Wife is thrilled! Thanks again for the great work.
