  1. The Scoop on Lab-Grown Diamonds in 2019

    As lab-grown diamonds become more prevalent in mainstream jewelry, there’s still a lot of mystery surrounding the gems. The phrase “lab-grown,” "synthetic," or "lab-created" brings to mind scientists stirring a vat of mysterious liquid that somehow results in something similar to a diamond being created, but that’s not quite the process. Let’s review a few of the burning questions that may be on your mind when it comes to lab-grown diamonds. Photo courtesy of Lightbox Are they real?In short, yes, lab-grown diamonds are real diamonds. They have the same physical, chemical, and optical properties that natural diamonds do; the only difference between l ...

  2. Shopping for Diamond Engagement Rings

    Today many of us jump to the internet as our first option for any purchase. Myself, I use it as a tool to gage what is acceptable to pay for something that can be purchased anywhere. If there is one thing that defies this rule it is shopping for diamond engagement rings;no two diamonds are the same. That is not to say that you should not do your research to get a general education and an idea of what to expect. Next, you need to trust your jeweler. A mall jeweler generally is going to have cookie-cutter pieces that are set by some factory in china based on strict cost cutting procedures, and generally has minimal education on the finer points of jewelry. Choosing a jeweler you trust can be a time consuming ...

  3. Why are Internet Prices on Diamonds all Different?

    Why are internet prices on diamonds all different - for the "same" quality? The other day aguest came in and asked if we would match internet pricing on diamonds. My answer may surprise you. I said, "I do not match diamond prices because no two diamonds are the same. I can, however, look at what you are seeing and most likely find a better priced diamond for you." Of course, the guest looked at me with a perplexed look and asked "If they are both G / SI1 and a half carat, aren't they the same?" Good question. The answer is yes...and no. The diamonds should be almost the same in color and clarity, but that is where the similarity may end. So, why are internet prices on diamonds different for the "same" quality diamonds? The retail myth: Ever heard ...

  4. April Birthstone, Part 3 - Diamond Carat

    April Birthstone, Part 3 of our Diamond Learn About Series. Diamond Carat: When Jewelers refer to a diamond's carat they are actually referring to the weight of the stone, not the size. In jewelry, the size of a stone is measured in millimeters; since diamonds can be cut shallow, deep or ideally, it is impossible to accurately convert a diamond's carat weight into an exact mm size. However, a very rough conversion can be made. Despite the ability to very roughly convert carat weight to size, the only accurate way to know the true carat weight of your diamond is to weigh it. Thus, 1 carat has become universally known as being a metric weight of 0.02 grams. The weight of a diamond has the most significant impact on its price. Since the larger a stone is, the rarer it is; one 2 carat diamond will be more expensive than the total cost of two 1 carat diamonds of the same quality. The carat of a diamond is often ...

  5. April Birthstone, Part 2 - Diamond Clarity

    Part two of our April Birthstone - Diamond Series! Diamond Clarity: Clarity refers to the number of "inclusions" that are found inside of a diamond. Inclusions are scratches, trace minerals, or other tiny characteristics or markings that can detract from the way light bounces from mirror to mirror (known as "facets") within a diamond. It is extremely rare to find a diamond without inclusions. Inclusions are distinguishing characteristics which represent the uniqueness of each diamond and are often called the diamond's "fingerprint" because no two stones are exactly alike. If a diamond is found without any inclusions it ranked "flawless," and can be quite costly. The number of inclusions in a diamond is determined on a scale based on the visibility and location of these flaws when the diamond is beneath 10x magnification. Two common diamond grading houses are ...

  8. Day's Jewelers? Who? Let us explain...

    I received an email from a customer last week that I think describes Day's better than anything I've ever read. Let me share... "Hello, My fiance proposed in April, and chose Day's because he found that your associates were the most helpful and informative in comparison to every other store he went to, letting him make an informed decision without being too pushy. When I needed to get my ring re-sized, I was floored when your repairs staff seemed to rearrange their schedules to fit my re-sizing in and get it done within an hour!
