At least 2 people from each store is standing outside their store at all times. They always try to talk to you or interest you in to coming to their store.

The benefit of the diamond district is that you all all these beautiful diamonds to look at in a short distance and you get to compare the prices.

The down side to this is that it can get very overwhelming for people who have not previously had this experience before.

It is always nice to do a lot of research on what type of diamond you would like: color, clarity, cut, ct, certification, shape, budget, and stick to it! That way you won’t be overwhelmed with all the different diamonds. Stick to what you would really like, shop around, compare prices, and you’ll be sure to find the perfect ring for you.

My advice would be not to buy anything without a GIA or AGS report. Seriously.

And not to allow himself to be pressured. Even those who are diamond savvy can be fooled if they’re not experts.

I wouldn’t buy from there – period.

I highly recommend ID jewelry. Great prices, honest an jut a pleasure to work with. Plus they can easily pull stones for you to look at from the dealers on the street.
