"David Baker has a pure heart! He's like the brother I never had. If I could only choose one word to describe David it would be Integrity. He's a man of honor. I'm blessed to call him my friend"

"David recently sponsored me in a beauty pageant and I can definitely say he's one of the most genuine, kindest and generous people I've ever met. He supported me so much throughout the whole experience and did so much more than was expected (he even borrowed me diamonds to wear for the final). You can tell he is so passionate about his work and that in itself, teamed with his kindness is inspirational."

Just a quick "better late than never" catch up to let you know that the wedding and honeymoon went fantastically well. The wedding venue was great and the weather was good, so we were able to take advantage of a large terrace for a BBQ. Croatia was fantastic for the honeymoon; lovely place, great weather and nice people - highly recommended :)
Thank you once again for everything you did for us and for making us feel special.
I've attached some pictures of the day. Jan looked stunning and laughed, smiled and cried her way through the day :)
Best wishes from us both
Jan and Darrel

"It is not very often in life that you come across someone who you can say “that guy was a remarkable and genuine man”.
I was fortunate enough one afternoon not too long ago to meet such a person in a shop called “River Oak Diamonds” at the Metro Centre Gateshead.
That afternoon in March I will never forget.
My sincerest thanks for all the kindness and attention you gave me and my wife Susan. She was absolutely bowled over by your courteous nature and politeness. I know she is really looking forward to visiting you at your shop soon to view the diamond when it comes in.
I can only offer my sincerest thanks and tell you what a great pleasure it was to meet and talk with you. You are the “real diamond” of your shop.
I am looking forward to meeting you again on Thursday May 17th when I arrive back home again to collect our diamond ring.
Take care David and my very best regards to you at all times.

Good Morning and a Merry Christmas to you and your family.
I just wanted to tell you the look on Carols face on Christmas Day when she saw the pendant was priceless, Carol loves it and wore it all day in fact she will not take it off. The diamonds were sparkling all day just like Carols eyes.
I take it you maybe at work today in the Metrocentre, May I suggest you take the day off close the shop and just go home to your family, as I cannot see any Diamonds you have sold for the Christmas being returned or exchanged, not at the high standard that you supply.
Once again thank you for all your guidance and advice you gave me in choosing Carols diamond pendant, I can assure you, you have not seen the last of me in River Oak Diamonds.
All the best to you and your family for 2013 hope it is a successful year for you and you family.

"My engagement and wedding rings are the most beautiful and precious pieces of jewellery I will ever have, and most of the credit belongs to David.
Thank you for searching for the most dazzling diamonds for us, and for paying so much attention to detail, the results are priceless. We started off looking for a diamond ring, and have left with both a beautiful diamond ring and a very good friend, which we hope....like the diamond....will be forever!
We wish you all the best for the bright future ahead of you, and we will be back for the eternity ring ;-)

"David is a true professional with an infectious enthusiasm for his business.
I wanted the perfect bespoke set diamond engagement ring, and spoke with a couple of other jewellers, before being fortunate enough to contact David. As soon as I spoke to David, I knew that we would be designing the perfect ring together. I cannot speak highly enough of the customer service provided by David, no task is too big or too small, and through sharing his extensive knowledge, offering advice and guidance, I knew from the outset that we would end up with something special for my bride to be!
The finished ring is absolutely stunning, and would not have been achievable without the guidance and creativity provided by David. Having shopped around, I would say that David offers incredible value for money, and the quality of diamond was better than anything I had seen elsewhere within the same budget!
My fiancée and I cannot thank you enough; the ring exceeds what I thought possible, and will be treasured for a lifetime! I will be recommending you to everyone!
Tom & Aimee"

David's knowledge of diamonds is both comprehensive and infectious. From the moment we stepped into the store we were addressed with a genuine warmth and sincerity that is sadly lacking in so many other places.
We are extremely pleased with our purchase and feel that David's expertise and passion greatly enhanced our experience.
A first rate service that was recommended to ourselves through word of mouth. We would echo that initial recommendation to anyone looking for a great product and service.

"Just Wanted to thank you for your most professional and friendly service with my recent purchase of my diamond ring from you. I had looked around for a long time and had no intention of having a ring made until I spoke to you. I definitely made the right decision as my rings are stunning and I believe outshine any I had viewed previously. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you to decide on the final design and should I ever be lucky enough to buy more diamonds I will come directly to River Oak Diamonds. Thanks again for everthing."

"This is the second time i have used River Oak Diamonds. The first time was to buy a ring for myself, the second to buy an engagement ring for my partner. Without a doubt in my mind i will be returning to purchase our wedding rings from David! I was put at ease right away and was helpfully guided through different types of rings and most of all the different cut and quallity of the diamonds you can buy, everything was kept so personal. David is so cool and collected about everything and makes you calm right away (as getting engaged is stessful enough) the advice and help he gave me was great from start to finish, there was not a question i was afraid to ask or that he could not answer and nothing he wouldnt try and do for you! The after service that i have recieved from David is also first class, even from telling him the date i was planning to propose and him asking me to text and let me know how everything went has made me feel so valued. The question you have to ask yourself from visting David at River Oak is why would i want to go anywhere else when i have been give so much genuine information on everything. I wouldnt hesitate to go back again and again!
Great man, Great advice, Great service!"

"I could not recommend……… highly enough David & River Oak Diamonds! Simply no words will do justice to the flawless service I received from a diamond of a guy. Asking someone to marry you is one of the most significant moments in your life and being able to choose, not just a generic over the counter ring, but a diamond and setting which nobody else has tried on makes that experience all the more special. It is clear to see that diamonds are David’s passion and it was this passion and expert knowledge that allowed me to create the perfect ring for the perfect girl, and for this I will be eternally grateful.
Thank you so much"

"After looking online and on the high street, I wasn't really happy with any Diamond rings I had seen. I went into the Metrocentre and again couldn't find anything, until I entered River Oak Diamonds. I met David and within 5 minutes knew I would be buying my fiancées engagement ring from him.
He actually spoke to me and wasn't interested in pushing endless generic styles, as all other jewellers seemed to want to do.
Its very hard to find true craftsman like David now.....people who are genuinely passionate about what they do, and who share their passion with others.
Once we had selected the right diamond, we could choose the style of setting and even change the style further. David kept us up to date at every step of the process and my fiancée is absolutely delighted with the result.
Having the Certificate with the Diamond gives security, and the guarantees that David gives cannot be beaten. I would recommend David and River Oak Diamonds to anyone and I'm also sure I will buy from him again."

"Last Christmas I was looking for a diamond solitaire pendant for my wife. I had visited a number of the well known high street stores for ideas but felt as though my choice was limited and that I was unable to specify specifically what I was looking for in terms of diamond size, colour, clarity etc. In my quest for choice I came across River Oak diamonds and from the moment I walked into their showroom at the Metro Centre I had a good feeling.
I was greeted by the owner David Baker who explained the benefits of fully bonded diamonds and what I should be looking for in a diamond to maximise my budget. Believe me it's not all about the carat size!
Through David's professionalism, knowledge and passion for diamonds I was able to find the diamond I was looking for and at price which in simple terms blew the high street prices out of the water without compromising quality. In fact greater quality at a more affordable price is what I achieved.
The process from start to finish was a thoroughly enjoyable experience with the end result being a very happy wife on Christmas day!
There is now no doubt in my mind that River Oak diamonds offer exceptional quality and a professionalism second to none. When I am next looking for a diamond River Oak is where I will be going."

"Having searched high & low for the perfect engagement ring I came across River Oak Diamonds. I had visited every high-street jewellery store, to find them a bit in-personal and very 'formal'. David instantly put me at ease and I was drawn by his passion for diamonds and his genuine interest in his customers. I chose the ring without any input from my fiance and David showed me many different styles and allowed me to browse at my leisure. David showed me the perfect ring and I knew straight away this would be the one! I would recommend River Oak Diamonds to every man out there who is in search of that perfect diamond!"
