Totally overrated and over priced. Most of the Diamonds are sourced from South Africa, and it is at least 30 - 40 % cheaper to purchase the highest quality Gemstones through Internationally certified and known Diamond dealers in South Africa.More

The portion of 47th Street between Fifth & Sixth Avenue is a paradise for Diamond lovers: 80 percent of the diamonds that enter the country are handled here. Deals are made with a handshake and the Yiddish words “mazel” and “brucha” (luck & blessings). Diamond...More
