I know this is an old post.  I guess the Jewelry exchange isnt super popular but my diamond is from there.  I like it 🙂  I might go get a neclace or earrings from them at a later date.

It’s like buying direct instead of from a company like a large retail store … I have only seen commercials .. Maybe it’s a local thing

@Diamond88:  

Yes absolutely, the diamonds are much cheaper they also vary greatly in quality so you have to know what you are looking for, have a sales person show you under the magnification so you know what you are getting (that’s what my Fiance did), some of the diamonds are certified if you want to be sure but those cost a little more.

Also he told me the repairs were much cheaper to do there than other places had quoted him and they did it in the store so no waiting.  I got to size mine later and got it back same day too.  This is the Greenwood Village one in Colorado. They did a really good job and I recently bent a prong and they did the tightening for free because it’s within the one year warrantee time.

I didn’t get the setting from there so I can’t vouch for that but I know that if you know what you’re doing you can get a really nice diamond for cheap. The one my Fiance bought appraised for almost twice what he paid for it.

Every time I hear the jewelry exchange I think the jewelry exchange in Sudbury because I was used to hearing the commercials back home lol.

I know this post is over a year late, but my diamond came from jewelry exchange.  I will be honest in their pre-set stones they do have some junk, I wasnt impressed.  But all I wanted was a simple solitaire so my Fiance went in and looked at their loose stones both priness and cushion and he decided on a cushion cut.  I would proably avoid buying one on line or preset, but there prices were good.   I will be honest for my 1.01 Ct cushion cut diamond which is SI2 and L in color ( which I like a warmer stone) he saved almost $1,000 bucks.  Give them a try..

 

At the end of the day, people get caught up in all the diamond stuff and they arent worth what they pay for, try to sell a diamond ring after a divroce and see what you get for it, you will likely take a 50% loss on it becuase diamond rings are a dime a dozen. 

 

So I say check jewerly exhange out, but look at their loose stones with the loop.  I also don’t think they have the best settings, but because I was getting a simple solitaire and we are going to do some other stuff with my bands.. it worked for us.

I love love LOVE the jewelry exchange! I have been shopping there for years. It started out as like my secret little place to get myself or someone special some nice jewelry for not-alot of money. lol I guess it’s not so secret with all the commercials they have, but even though, it seems like alot of people have still never shopped there!

Recently, I started shopping online at their website jewelryexchange.com. Buying jewelry online?? I know right… but they have a great return policy so I took a chance & ended up buying online more than going into the store Laughing.

We even bought my engagement ring on their website. I am so happy with my ring, and was able to get way more ring than we would have been able to afford anywhere else. I am in love with the diamond, the setting, everything! I am going to take a picture as soon as I get a chance so that all you ladies can check it out,

I bought a setting (mount) only and they did not tell me that my stone would not fit in the setting.  I had the stone out and they saw it and knew that was what I was planning on putting in it. I took it somewhere else to be set and two independent jewelers said it was the wrong size.  They said they could set it but it would not be secure and might fall out. So, either they knowingly sold me a ring that my stone would not fit in or they simply did not know.  One of the independents told me that they are just salespeople, not jewelers.  And it does seem like they don’t really know about jewelry. No refunds of course. And no exchanges on my particular mounting because it was part of a set so it was a special sale. So, I was just out the money.   I did however get a sweet deal on the mounting but seems like they just say whatever and all they care about is making the sale.  If you want expert opinions, go elsewhere.  If you are well versed in jewelry and know exactly what you want, it can be a good deal.  And make sure you look closely at all diamonds, especially in natural light.  There are some pretty crappy ones with lots of inclusions.  And they will NOT point them out to you.
