Besides a vast selection of bridal jewelry, fashion jewelry and watches, Luis has something far more unique to offer.
“As a result of social media, people have developed hyper unique tastes; depending on what they have seen online.” said Flores.
“They want part of what they see from one ring, another feature from a different ring and a small style aspect from a third ring,” said the Maspeth Jewler.
Since Flores designs and manufactures jewlery in his store, he is able to make the hyper specific ring or any custom piece of jewelry that his customer desires.
“I have the best jewelry design software in my store on Grand Ave., and customers get to preview their jewelry before I go ahead and craft their piece,” said Flores.
In 1994, Flores arrived in New York with the goal of becoming a mechanical engineer. His dream changed over 20 years ago, as he visited his uncle who was a jeweler.
He soon fell in love with the craft, and the more he learned about jewelry, the more he knew that it was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
“I went to Luis to talk about the engagement ring that I knew my fiance wanted,” said John, a resident of Maspeth who we spoke to.
“I showed him pictures of 3 different rings that her sister sent me. Luis educated me on the weight, color, clarity and cut of diamonds; how they are graded and the price range of the different grades,” said John.
“Luis crafted the most beautiful and unique ring (pictured above) at a better price than the diamond websites told me the price would be,” said John. “I am so happy I went to Lafyes for this - and I am forever grateful to Luis!”
“The best part of this industry is the satisfaction we get from our customers,” said Flores. “I am here to do my best every day.”
Maspeth residents have been flocking to Lafyes not just for the best prices, but because Flores understands how important and emotionally valuable jewelry can be.
Flores also assured us that he works directly with diamond manufacturers, and his diamonds are certified and conflict free.
Lafyes is located at 65-43 Grand Ave. Maspeth, NY 11378. Luis can be reached at (718) 894-0360.
