Diamond & Gemstone Viewing Process
Our Diamond Viewing Process is designed to allow our clients to view and compare diamonds or gemstones in person before purchasing. Diamond viewings are held in our Boston Gallery during regular business hours by appointment. Contact us to set up an appointment, or with any questions, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tell us what shape, size, and budget stones you would like to view and let us assist with the selection, or choose the stone yourself from our database. At your appointment we will cover information about the 4 C's, diamond certificates and characteristics to help you make the best choice. Use our diamond and gemstone search tools to select your own stones for a viewing, or our stone selection experts will select them for you.
Stone Viewing Deposit
We require a non-refundable deposit of 100.00 for stones up to 2 carats, and a refundable 10% deposit for stones over 2 carats to be collected prior to the viewing appointment. The entire 100.00 deposit is applied to any center stone, diamond or gemstone, purchased through the gallery. The fee is designed to cover expenses, like shipping and sourcing.
Diamonds are shipped in overnight, and can be viewed 24 to 48 hours after selection. Stones will need to be returned to our supplier within 1 business days of viewing and must be paid in full to purchase. Financing is available through PayPal Financing.
Number of Diamonds or Gemstones
We will bring in two rounds of two stones per viewing that are personally selected to fulfill your stone budget or desired size. Most often one viewing is all that is needed.
Unique Stone Sourcing
Stones that are not sourced from our standard supplier (not currently on our website), or individually sourced with special characteristics(colored diamonds, unique sizes or shapes) will require a $100 fee prior to sourcing. Unique stone sourcing, shapes or cuts and only allowed one round of stone viewing, and are shown individually.
Payment for Your Stone
Diamonds and gemstones selected for purchase must be paid in full at time of selection. PayPal financing is available through the PayPal Financing web site.
