You have a Proposal to Plan
Let our diamond experts take the time consuming education process and guess work out of your online diamond purchase. We have years invested in diamond education, viewing and selection, and a GIA gemologist on staff ensure your purchasing satisfaction. We can select a diamond for you based on your budget or grading preferences and send along information and video prior to purchase We also offer an in-store viewing of stones(up to three stones depending on size and availability and two viewings) in our database for a 100.00 deposit. The deposit is non refundable but is fully applied to the purchase of a center stone through our store.
We select diamonds and gemstones for you based on three principles:
Facts & Financial: Two stones with the same carat weight and 4 C's can look very different side by side. We identify the best overall diamond make using qualifiers beyond the 4 C's, such as table & depth, facet angles, symmetry, polish, and clarity characteristics. This ensures that you find the best center stone within your budget.
Unbiased Sourcing: We do not own the diamonds that we source for our clients. We find and recommend stones from one of our Canadian or Botswana DTC ethical sources. If we recommend a stone, it's because it is stunning, ethically sourced, and we would buy it ourselves.
Steadfast Grading: We offer diamonds graded by the GIA, the number one grading authority for diamonds traded worldwide as well as by the AGS and EGL USA. We do not use company created jargon to describe the diamonds we sell, only traditional terms used and readily available on the diamond grading certificates.
Let our experts assist with your center stone purchase including ethically sourced sapphires, diamonds, fancy diamond cuts and colored stones.
In-Store Diamond Purchase Policy
Once you've selected a diamond or center stone, the stone must be paid for in full to purchase. We are unable to finance or hold stones longer than 24 hours after the in-store viewing.
