As members of Independent Jewelers Organization we have the opportunity to travel to Antwerp, Belgium, the Diamond Capital of the World. We travel to Antwerp twice a year to buy diamonds directly from the DeBeers sight-holders. In addition to purchasing diamonds for our store, we also serve as a diamond broker for some of our customers, finding a diamond for them in Antwerp. We always enjoy finding a special diamond for someone and then delivering it personally along with a box of Belgian chocolates that we have hand carried across the Atlantic from Europe.
Because we deal directly with the diamond cutters and DeBeers sight-holders in Antwerp, we avoid paying a mark-up to the U.S. importer and distributor. Therefore, we can offer you the diamond of a lifetime at substantial savings over regular retail prices.
It's not only the savings that make this a unique diamond buying experience. It's the fact that your personal jeweler is traveling close to 10,000 miles to hand-select this specific diamond for you from among the largest selection of diamonds ever gathered in any one place. It's your decision to choose a certain size, shape, color and clarity of diamond--not just accept what is available on the local market. It's the journey of your special diamond--from the earth, to the cutter, to you--no previous owner, no stops along the way.
There is nothing quite like owning (or giving) a beautiful, quality diamond--a one-of-a-kind masterpiece of nature, perfected by the skilled hands of the expert diamond cutters in the world's diamond center--which was hand selected for you by your personal diamond broker in Antwerp, Belgium. A gift that will last a lifetime.
