Excel Diamonds reviewed by J.R.

"My 2nd Excel purchase: lots of options, lots of personal help, and gorgeous diamonds!"

This is my second purchase from Excel; the first was an engagement stone and setting 13-ish years ago. I reached out to Excel via their website, on a Sunday evening around 8pm to ask if the gentleman I worked with all those years ago was still there. To my delight, Barry replied THAT NIGHT to say hello, that he remembered me, and that he’d be sending some stone selections for the earrings I was looking for. Unreal! Over the next few weeks, we conversed via phone and email, Barry sent a ton of options and recommendations which I compared with a local jeweler who had another source for diamonds. Ultimately, I settled on a pair of .94ct/ea stones that Barry had selected and recommended, wired the money, and several days later they were in my hands. They are absolutely gorgeous! I took the stones to my local jeweler who let me look at them under a scope, set them, and appraise them. The local jeweler also had a NY-based source for diamonds and had a couple sets delivered for me to review (very nice of them, but Excel had earned the business 13 year ago). After setting the stones, the local jeweler said, “You made the right choice, those are excellent diamonds.” He’s right; the earrings sparkle in any lighting condition and are just... stunning!

They are going to my wife this weekend and I can’t thank Excel enough. They saved me thousands from local diamond pricing, I got exactly what I think my wife will love, and I received a tremendous amount of hand-holding and choices all the way through the process.

There isn’t a better diamond-buying experience than having diamond experts listen to you, give you real suggestions based on what you’re looking for, provide options, and take you all the way through the process (without being pushy!).

Thank you, Excel!

"Todd’s advice gave me piece of mind about my diamond purchase "

I contacted Todd seeking his advice about 2 diamonds I was considering. He said he couldn’t recommend either of them but he found another, much better option for me that was still in my price range! He clearly explained what he didn’t like about the original 2 and why the new choice was much better. It was exactly the piece of mind I needed in making my purchase. I’m thrilled, thank you!

Diamonds-USA reviewed by Marilena A.

"a real disaster "

It’s been more than 1 month since we can not reach at all these people to whom we’ve already paid half of the amount for one ring and it seems they simply disappeared from everywhere: website, phone numbers, whatsapp, Instagram, Facebook, all the official available channels. It is unbelievable how unprofessional they can be, taking into consideration their apparent transparency and good reputation. I’ve been sending tens of emails, calls, they simply refuse to answer... not to mention anymore they ruined our wedding, as we couldn’t have the ring in the necessary time. And everything without a reason or an explanation. Totally disappointed about this shop disaster, ghost shop or whatever you want to name it! Such a shame!

"Excellent experience!"

I had an excellent experience at Frank Salese, working with Massey. Not only did he make my experience pleasurable and stress free, he was very informative and educated me on my purchase, helped me find something within my budget, and never pressured me into something I didn’t want. 10/10 I will always return for my jewelry needs. Thanks!

"5 of 5 all the way"

I'm from Australia, and purchasing an big investment, such as an engagement ring, online & on the other side of the planet, is such a huge risk. However, I have had friends recommend James Allen to me and have only good words to say. So it gave me confidence to try them out and see how it turns out.

I will rate my experience under 3 metrics:

1. Ring Quality - 5/5
- I purchased a Platinum Cross Over Trellis Pave Diamond Engagement Ring 0.58 crt D VVS1 EX EX. I opted for an overall top tier quality of a ring as opposed to a higher ct but sacrificing the quality of the setting as well as the other C's. The ring looks BEAUTIFUL on my fiance's finger. She gets a lot of compliments on it and it shines ever so brightly. I am 100% satisfied with the ring I purchased as I also had a lot of help from the online diamond expert who clearly knows what they're doing.
The packaging was elegant and it came with all the paperwork as well as certifications around Quality testing.

2. Online experience/Ease of Transaction - 5/5
- The website is easy to navigate, the collection is massive, the drill down options were specific, and the cross-referencing is efficient. A big plus as well is the real time chat available with a diamond expert. It made me feel like I was literally sitting in a brick/mortar Diamond Shop picking out the biggest purchase of my life. The tracking of my order was also seamless, partnering with Fedex is also a big plus as they are a reputable shipping company globally.

3. Customer Engagement - 5/5
- What I loved most about the customer engagement is the decisiveness. The James Allen customer representatives were decisive about their recommendations. They provided all the information that helped them make a decision, so all I had to do was trust their judgement. Not once did I hear the words "It depends on what you want", which I honestly find refreshing. I've also had to return the ring back because I got the sizing wrong, but that also proved to be a painless transaction as James Allen was on top of everything every step of the way.

Overall, James Allen has been a big factor in helping me deliver the best engagement/proposal experience of me and my fiance's lives. We'll definitely be purchasing our wedding bands from them as well.

Fascinating diamonds reviewed by Damian T.

"Incompetent, Untrustworthy Practices, Beware! "

Purchased a wedding set online from the Fascinating webstore back in March of this year. I selected the center stone and payed. What I received was not the stone I selected but rather one they had been trying to get rid of for a number of years as substantiated by the listed discounted price of that stone on the webstore. The color of the stone, cut, symmetry and polish is of lower quality and is within 0.01 the same carat weight. Not happy that I received the incorrect diamond, I contacted Roger to make a complaint. Roger informed me that the stone I had selected was sold prior to me placing my order and his team made the decision to swap the diamond without informing myself or even Roger himself. Roger was assuring me that he would do what it takes to rectify the situation and offered for me to select a new diamond from the webstore and post back the ring to be rectified. I selected the diamond of same carrot weight and matched the color and symmetry to that of my original selected stone which was agreed upon by both parties and then posted the ring back at my cost. Shortly after providing Roger with the tracking number for the postage I received an email from Roger demanding I pay another $500 for the difference in value for the diamond. At no time during the discussions of replacing the diamond was there any mention of needing to pay the difference in his listed value and now only after the ring was already on its way to him did he decide to employ this tactic to extract further money from me. There was no way I would pay another cent for his incompetence and questionable business ethics and requested the ring returned unaltered which resulted me being out of pocket for another $220 for the returned postage and customs clearance and no remorse what so ever from Roger. To make it even worse, I do not even know if the swapped out diamond is even real, there is an identical stone still listed on his webstore under the same GIA certificate as the one i received. This makes me sick to my stomach to realise that the diamond could be a fake. Beware of purchasing from this company!

Whiteflash Ideal Diamonds & Fine Jewelry reviewed by Stephen S.

"Second to none service and product!"

I recently purchased an engagement ring which is one of the biggest and most momentous purchases one will make. I was more nervous about the purchase itself than I was about the actual proposal. After hours of research and comparisons to other companies I honed in on Whiteflash to begin the process of finding the ring. Magen Roccaforte was immediately in touch with me and continued to update me throughout the process. I had done my research on the 4 C's but it's still overwhelming to retain all of that information and weed through a massive selection. Magen listened to what it was I needed and pointed me in the right direction, coming up with multiple options that fit my budget. I sent countless emails with questions but Megan was kind and quick with her responses. In the end we found the perfect diamond and setting for a very reasonable price (and I looked around, while we talked, for diamonds with the same specs and never found a better price). I had a tight time schedule but the ring came on time and was even more brilliant and beautiful than I had imagined. I decided on the super ideal 'hearts and arrows' cut which was supposed to have more fire and sparkle and did it ever! My dog goes crazy every time light hits the ring because of all the reflections on the wall. My now fiancée is so thrilled and was speechless when I gave her the ring, and everyone she excitedly shows it too is in awe and more often than not uses expletives to describe it's splendor. So to put it more simply, the entire process from deciding on the ring, finding one in my price range, delivering on time, and the final result, Whiteflash has gone above and beyond in my opinion to provide us with the absolute best service. I would recommend Whiteflash and the super ideal cut to anyone looking to purchase a diamond. They are second to none.

Brilliant Earth reviewed by Scott C.

"She is in love with the ring."

The products are of an extremely high quality, the ethics even higher. I did not ever buy a ring for my fiancee until this ring because this was the only place I felt it guaranteed what they advertised, conflict free ethical treatment to obtain the stones. I was able to find exactly what I and she wanted, the business side of the transaction was hassle free, the product was gorgeous and of a high quality, and I am able to relax knowing how it was obtained. I know my dollars helped others in the country it was mined, and I know they live a better life for it. This is why you come to Brilliant Earth, and not any other business. On a personal note- Ask for Macy. She was patient with me, showed me show many options and choices without attempting to sway one way or the other. She listened to what I was looking for, and brought her experience and ideas to make it the perfect combination. My fiancee is in love with the ring, and I could not be happier with the purchase.

"great experience"

Fantastic experience from the beginning to the end. The help and courtesy i received are amazing. Very professional, valid honest opinion that you can trust. it's not a small purchase and can get complicated trying to balance many factors to get the best value for the money in buying diamonds so honesty and good recommendation are critical. I am a returning customer for a reason and how i was treated they retained me as a customer for life. Leah you're great !!! can't thank you enough.

DreamStone reviewed by Gabriel S.

"DreamStone provides an outstanding customer service"

After visiting various shops one day I came across DreamStone jewelry, I can tell you I was very impressed by the quality of care I have received upon purchasing an engagement ring. I was quite pleased to find quality and selection of GIA and EGL certified diamonds at the store and I am very grateful for the outstanding service. At DreamStone I was not rushed to make my decision, they were very nice and took a great deal of time to explain everything about diamonds and answering all my questions clearly. If you need to buy diamond jewelry I highly recommend DreamStone jewelry as being one of the best diamond store.

Diamonds On Web reviewed by Nakhle S.

"Great store and great people!"

You will become right away friends with Jim and Layla who will help you, on the phone or by email, through your purchase. I had "zero idea" about diamonds, and now I can easily say I am an expert, thanks to those people! They won't get bored of you, even if you call or email hundreds of time. They completely understand that you are paying a lot, for an important cause, so they make sure you are 100% satisfied before you make your pick. Even after your purchase, they will continue to work with you on resizing, and other needed things. I got the engagement ring and the wedding band from them, my fiance was so impressed, and I am very pleased with my purchase.

Bonded Buyers

"Refreshingly honest, top paying diamond buyers!!"

All of the staff at this Houston store was very kind, respectful and extremely knowledgeable. I had a very fine 3ct diamond that had been passed down to me and it came to the point where I needed to sell it (I'd no one to give it to and i needed the money). The owners at Bonded Buyers took the time to explain my diamond's quality and showed me exactly how they calculated their offer. I visited several "reputable" diamond buyers in Houston before finding this place but no other offer came close to what bonded buyers paid me and most other places were generally snobbish at best. I got a check on the spot and cashed it the very same day! I would absolutely reccomend them to anyone looking to do the same...thanks for everything guys!!
