Thanks for deciding to shop at a family owned, local business. David & Anne pledge to help you choose the diamond that is right for you. You don’t have to buy the diamond to see it in real life conditions. You can compare several diamonds side by side and decide based on your own opinion of their beauty, rather than to blindly trust a bunch of numbers & letters. It’s easier to make sense of them when you can actually see what those numbers & letters refer to. It takes many months to earn the Diamond certification from the G.I.A. Don’t try to cram yourself with info gleaned from 45 minutes on the internet!
