This one looks great, and is in your price range!
Hi all, I am new to this site but thought I might be able to contribute here!
My fiance’s family is in the wholesale jewelry business and knowing what they pay for diamonds, the big stores are a HUGE rip off. The prices his family sells diamonds at are significantly less than chain stores. I don’t know where you are located but in Atlanta (where we are) is a HUGE mart where stores purchase their inventory. You need to be a registered business to get in, have one of the stores put you on a list to be admitted or come on a special open house day but it is well worth it. HUGE savings on the bands as well. A place like the Atlanta Apparel mart has +30 fine jewelery stores to look in- all of which offer great prices.
No, his family doesn’t have a website- some wholesalers do but prices are almost never advertised because then you would know how much the stores are ripping you off 😉
Feel free to private message me, or maybe google wholesale jewelery in your local area?
Has anyone ever used diamond.com?
Fiance and I are looking into buying a diamond from there, they seem to have great prices and they are GIA graded diamonds :]
No…most diamonds sold in stores are SI-I…Go to your local jewelery store and ask questions and really look at what they have to offer and figure out what you want before you order offline….good luck!
