"Owners Scott and Tara Mikolay are known for holding unparalleled custom service values. Shoppers are welcome to browse while sipping on complimentary cappuccino or sparkling water. Never have I felt so at east shipping in a luxury store as I have when I entered the Mikolay's shop. I was greeted with a smile and taken very good care of. The best part? They have gifts from $40 up to $100,000 so they really have something for everyone. I have and will continue to be a loyal shopper there since I discovered them eight years ago."

"What a wonderful experience I had from the minute I entered your store until the time I left with my spectacular new remounted diamond ring! Everyone was patient, knowledgeable, kind and understanding as I was guided through the process of resetting my mother's diamond ring. I waited a long time until I was ready to wear her diamond and the wait was well worth it! You are amazing and every time I look down at my finger, I'll think of you and will be forever grateful. I'll see you often-especially to make the ring stay shiny!"
- Carole, Chappaqua, NY

"The nicest, most upbeat on the pulse store around! Their ambience and 'with it' attitude along with a range of affordable to high-end jewelry make it impossible not to buy there!"

"My husband and I have been customers of Desires by Mikolay for several years now. It is a beautiful store with high quality and beautiful items. Not only that, but we are fortunate to be able to work with the most wonderful sales associates. They are attentive and professional at all times. When my son was born almost 2 years ago my husband knew immediately where to go for a special gift for me. He chose a beautiful necklace that has both the lotus flower inscribed on it, signifying new beginnings, as well as a sapphire, my son's birthstone. It is perfect and I get a ton of compliments on it. When I was undergoing some medical treatments I also purchased a different necklace; it was a good pendant on a turquoise beaded chain, the turquoise indicating healing. I love that the store carries all different types of jewelry. I will never buy jewelry elsewhere! "

"Desires by Mikolay has an amazing selection of jewelry. I love stopping in to see the new and unique designer pieces. If you want to stay on trend, they also have great fashion pieces that are not only gorgeous but affordable at the same time. It really is a one-stop shop for every occasion."
- Eileen, Hartsdale, NY

"It is always a wonderful experience walking away from Desires by Mikolay with a timeless piece to add to your collection. Scott and Tara offer sophisticated and fashionable designs at prices that make everyone happy. The staff is fantastic and, in conjunction with Scott and Tara or without, my husband always receives great recommendations when he stops in to pick up a gift. Another reason why shopping at Desires is such a pleasant experience is the on-site cleaning and repairs... truly a one stop shop, no reason to go anywhere else."
- Suzanne, Cortland Manor NY

"It doesn't matter if you walk in the door prepared to spend a fortune or to purchase a gift or small treat for yourself; the service is the same. It is outstanding for everyone. You always feel welcome and secure. The merchandise is presented beautifully and there is something for every price point. The staff really understands one's "wish list" so that whenever you receive a gift from the store, it is truly what you desire."

"When it comes to style and service, Desires by Mikolay can be described in one word, 'impeccable'."
- HPF, Chappaqua, NY

"When special jewelry comes to mind, certain words are inescapable: timeless, flawless, unmatched (in creativity, execution, and presentation), self-expressive and compelling. All of those words best describe the talented Scott Mikolay, his wife Tara and their handpicked employees. It is no surprise that, during times of economic uncertainty, Desires by Mikolay is thriving. Local talent and community commitment cannot be replaced by any large-scale alternative."
- Jo, Chappaqua, NY
