People choose different jewelers for varying reasons. While all of the jewelers I recommend have outstanding customer service in my experience someone will choose one over another for the following reasons:

  • Blue Nile: recognized brand; financing options
  • Whiteflash: high quality settings; experts on staff; one year service plan
  • Keyzar: No stock settings (each ring is made to suit its respective diamond); good communication; aim to please.
  • James Allen: recommended by a friend; ease of returns

I recommend a stone by combining a number of assessment factors including:

  • the stone’s proportions and angles
  • how confident I am that the recipient will absolutely love love love the diamond;
  • excellent light return
  • optical precision
  • good quality diamond material
  • the value I believe it represents;
  • must be deemed eye-clean by me;
  • how well it fits the brief.
