Making the Best Diamond Decision

roundDiamonds are complicated, and the scam artists are clever. It took me a decade to learn what I have condensed into these pages for you. Even dealers with years of experience make mistakes that cost them dearly.

The lessons on this site have been created to guide you as fast as possible toward the best diamond for the least money, whether you buy from an online jeweler or buy from a local jeweler.

Please follow these steps, or you will very likely make a costly and embarrassing mistake on your diamond engagement ring, like most couples do.
