Testimonials from R.D. Allen Freeport Jewelers customers:
I just wanted you to know that I received my Maine tourmaline yesterday. My compliments on the land-and-sea setting and I am very happy that the piece arrived as you promised, and for taking the extra step to keep us posted throughout. Every time I wear it I will think of our special Maine get-away and remember your kindness and patience with us. Thank you again for all of your gentle guidance while I selected the perfect piece for me, and for coordinating the setting and shipping of my little seeded watermelon slice.
We can’t thank the crew at R.D. Allen enough for building our custom engagement ring from scratch. We will cherish this symbol of our love for the rest of our lives. We had some pretty specific and non-traditional requests for our ring, and Annette was able to capture everything we were looking for with the assistance of some amazing state-of-the-art Computer Aided Design. Once we had consulted with Annette regarding our general ideas for the piece, she was able to provide a digital image of the ring, which we were then able to further “tweak” to our exact specifications. When the final ring arrived, it was exactly what we had in mind. Annette also worked hard to keep the ring within our budget and was flexible with regard to payment in installments, which is invaluable to a young couple on a budget. R.D. Allen has earned two more customers for life, and we will definitely be returning soon to order our wedding bands.
Last month, I left several pieces of gold and tourmaline stones for “repurposing” as Annette calls it. I left two rings, a bracelet, and three neck pendants. Annette took time to sit with me and we discussed how we would change each piece to add the stones. Well, Annette and her Goldsmith Lorene worked wonders! I have some fabulous “new” pieces of jewelry to take with me when I move to Hawaii. Thank you, Annette! Everything turned out stunning!
When driving into Freeport you’ll see all the usual suspects for an outlet center, but tucked away on a side street is a wonderful local store that you won’t want to miss, at least if you enjoy jewelry. That store is R.D. Allen Freeport Jewelers at 13 Middle Street in Freeport. Just plug that into your GPS and park in one of their parking spaces out front of the store. Annette Evans, storeowner, is likely to greet you with an enthusiasm that is truly genuine. While she specializes in Maine Tourmaline, you’ll find lines and designs you won’t see at every other jewelry store. The store itself is completely different from the traditional layout of a jewelry store. Her cases are taller and at a slant so that you can see almost everything at eye level without bending over double to get a closer look. Prepare to be dazzled by color, for that is what her store is about! I was equally impressed by her prices. There is a price point for all pocketbooks, which is so important these days. Whether you buy something or not you’ll be welcome to shop without pressure. That’s the Maine way and also Annette’s way!
Eighteen years ago my daughter’s Aunt starting giving my daughter a single pearl for each special occasion. Then my daughter’s Grandma started doing the same. A long story short, for my daughter’s graduation from Freeport High School I wanted to get the pearls strung on a special necklace. I visited several local jewelry stores and happened upon Annette at R.D. Allen. She was able to take the pearls and create a necklace so gorgeous that I couldn’t believe my eyes-and at a FRACTION of the cost of what other jewelers had quoted me. I presented that necklace to my daughter on her graduation day with all of our relatives present. Because many of those relatives had donated pearls to the necklace they were so touched to see the end result. Needless to say there were few dry eyes. Thanks you R. D. Allen and Annette for a most memorable event.
I received the bracelet today. It is beautiful. I want to thank you for your wonderful way with people. We feel comfortable shopping at your store and will return on our next visit to Freeport.
Package arrived. Everything is perfect. I will always remember the trip when I wear any of the pieces. We had a great time and met a lot of wonderful people along the way starting with you. Thank you so much.
