I know that Peoplesjewellers.com sells them. But it’s a Canadian retailer so idk if they’ll send it to the USA.

James Allen, diamonds by lauren, and blue nile. 

Blues are incredibly expensive though.

D.NEA diamonds sells lab made blue diamonds which are a lot more affordable than natural/mined – I saw a blog post/review of a ring with blue lab diamonds from that vendor and it was gorgeous. They sell actual lab-created diamonds, they are not simulants which try to bill themselves as “lab diamonds”.

The blue diamonds on Pompeii3, Jared, Zale’s, etc. are irradiated to achieve their color. Naturally fancy blue diamonds are a different thing.

@starla:  +1 to buying a blue diamond from D.NEA. At least then it is a native color (grown naturally) rather than irradiated. Irradiated blue diamonds tend to have a teal color to them, which is still pretty, but I would personally like a fancy blue diamond for fancy vivid blue, which are much more affordable lab grown. 😀

I just looked up blue diamonds on bluenile and just about choked, haha. For only $603,685, that 2.73 carat stone can be yours!

http://www.BellJewels.com (where FH got my rings) is a great site! I have no complaints about my ring (but they do come mounted already, if you are looking for loose diamonds, I don’t know)

The first thing you will have to decide is if you want the ones that are:

1. artifically turned blue by being put in a nuclear reactor (very affordable but not natural, can have residual radioactivity, and can fade…they are teal blue after irradiation but the original color is usually a dingy yellow).

2. naturally blue, coming in many beautiful shades, only one disadvantage but it’s a huge one: The price!

…the places where you’d buy one of those are generally not the places you’d buy the other!

I have a blue diamond from People’s, and Zales owns peoples. I like mine, but I didn’t pick it out… though I had been sending my Fiance (then boyfriend) bi-weekly ‘inspiration’ pics. Haha. I also think you need to see it on your hand to get a better idea. Just my two cents.

DNEA diamonds have amazing quality, are identical to natural blue diamonds and have fantastic customer service!

d.neadiamonds.com

The other vendors are selling irradiated stones. I am not a fan of teal colour in treated blue diamonds and the quality of the stones would worry me. You can mask a few things with irradiation.
