Classic Tiffany Style Half Round

Hello Paul,

I stumbled across your website and was wondering if you could help me find the best value possible for a $8000 engagement ring purchase. I’d like to get something around 1 carat and round.

I have also been reading up about information on hearts and arrows diamonds online and am extremely interested in this cut for its beauty.

If you could give me a couple of suggestions around that price range and carat size, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks! I hope to hear from you soon as I want to make this purchase within the week.

Remembering An Important Date


First of all I want to commend you for creating this wonderful website. It’s a breath of fresh air compared to most other online sites regurgitating the same information without any real insights.

My name is Tony and I am looking for a diamond ring for my 10th anniversary. Over the past week, I had been researching online at various places but the amount of information is overwhelming.

Problems in Making Online Transactions?

Currently, I just ordered a diamond ring from them (paying through paypal) but they mentioned that they have difficulty in accepting the transaction because my address is unconfirmed, and so the transaction is only partially eligible.  (more…)
