I recently moved to Houston and went into the store with a friend who was visiting. She had found the store listed somewhere. We spent a while in the store looking at all the gorgeous, antique pieces they offered. Everyone in the store was very friendly and accommodating. Daniel was especially knowledgeable about the history of each of their pieces. We really liked the jewelry they offered. Daniel very patient and spent time showing us pieces that were not on display. If you are looking for a unique piece of jewelry this is the place to go.

This is one of Houston's best kept secrets. Past Era is able to source some of the most exquisite pieces of jewelry from years gone by. The pieces are always of high quality and most importantly, different than so much of what you see with the high end designers. You can certainly go to some of the retailers and buy some nice pieces, but those same pieces can be aquired in any of hundereds of places. At Past Era, you have a selection of pieces that are truly unique, one of a kind. The owner and staff of Past Era have years of experience in the business and are very helpful in providing advice, giving the history of the pieces and helping you select something that is just for you or a loved one--they are very, very attentive. My wife loves the selection and is probably their biggest fan.

My fiance and I went in here to go pick out an engagement ring. This was our first stop so we didn't really know what to expect. At first I saw a corner of bright flashy rings and I was kind of turned off because I was expecting something more rustic and unique. But as soon as I explained to the lady what it was I was looking for she brought out a whole array of rings that catered to my style. Not only was she really trying hard to find us something we loved but she was also trying to get us a good price! It was nice not having someone working off commission just trying to sell you the biggest most expensive diamond. After about 30 minutes she found me my perfect ring! My fiance was skeptical that we weren't going to look anywhere else but I assured him I wouldn't regret it if we didn't. This place has amazing jewelry and amazing service. They really knew everything about the piece and how unique it was. I am so happy I found the ring I will be wearing everyday for the rest of my life. Thank you Past Era!!!

Our shopping experience at Past Era was wonderful. I discovered my dream engagement ring online and from the moment I called "just to see if they still had it", to the day I had to visit it "just to try it on", to the amazing afternoon I picked it up knowing it would be mine - at every turn Dan and the others were there to answer our questions, laugh with us and treat us like royalty. We are simple folk and honestly I expected a fancy River Oaks store to be a tad hoity toity - but all I can say is don't worry about this for a moment, just go on in and have fun, they are there to help you enjoy the process and find the perfect piece at the perfect price. Following a dreamy proposal my beautiful engagement ring from the 20's in sparkling away as I type this, I love knowing that it is one of a kind and that I will never walk into the mall or pass a billboard or sit in a conference room and see anything like it. It's also comforting to know it's been expertly sized, appraised and GIA certified and that the owner is just down the street if I ever have questions or need anything.

Excellent place. A lot of great items, but very overpriced.

I've been visiting Past Era since I was a little girl, and it's about time I wrote them a review. What sets them apart most in my experience is the unfaltering quality and specialness of the jewelry. These ladies really have outstanding taste...each piece is so carefully selected, there are just no duds! I have always been able to count on them for thorough, accurate information about the pieces, styles, history, care...talking to them is a pleasure because they are true enthusiasts who run this shop because they love the things they sell. I remember in particular the girl who helped me the last time I was in town and stopped by...she was drooling just as much over the pieces as I was. It was like shopping WITH someone, not FROM someone...the antithesis of a hard sell. :) I don't know of any place in Houston with better prices. Past Era gets the credit for teaching me that even young people with modest means can own beautiful, REAL jewelry. Engagement rings? I wouldn't send you anywhere else. Anniversaries? You can't do better. Visiting them is a treat. I hope they're around forever. :)
