While many online diamond retailers focus on generic diamond jewelry and average quality diamonds, Diamond Source of Virginia specializes in finding world-class diamonds for clients who are seeking both beauty and value.
The cutters who supply our diamonds are the same cutters who provide diamonds to the luxury jewelry stores frequented by the rich and famous. Those stores take the same diamonds put them in a designer mounting, often using the same designers we use, and then stamp their logo on the mounting so they can double or triple our prices. Ironically, the diamonds we sell often have better cut and quality than those in stores where they use the name to sell the diamond rather than the beauty and value.
Here are some examples of the types of world-class diamonds we have sold. If you are looking for the best diamond in terms of beauty and value, give us a call today and tell us what you are looking for. It will be one of the best phone calls you will ever make.
