If you’re Shopping Online for Loose Diamonds, there are only Two Main Places that I Highly Recommend:
Both Companies are Highly Admired in the Jewelry Industry, and they both tend to give you the Utmost Rock Bottom Prices on Loose Diamonds all across the Board.
They usually will Out Beat any Local Jewelry Store by Hundreds, if Not Thousands of Dollars!
And for Good Reason too:
They Have Very Little Overhead!
Some People may be Scared to Shop Online and Buy Expensive Diamonds Sight Unseen, but I Assure you, it’s Not as Dire as it seems.
Most Notably: GIA!
GIA is the BEST there is and gives you the Most Accurate and Strict Report Ever.
GIA made the 4C’s. They know Diamonds Inside and Out. They are the “GO TO” Source for Diamond Grading, Education and Training.
And if you’ve Read any Articles I have Written on my Website, you’ll know that there are some Strong Characteristics that I Highly Advise Looking for:
- SI1 Clarity or Higher
- DEF Colorless Diamonds
- No Fluorescence
- Very Good or Excellent Cut
- GIA Certified
Comparing James Allen to Blue Nile, you’ll find that they are Generally Pretty Close in Price. One may be a Tad Lower in one Diamond Quality, but Higher in the Next. It’s a Give or Take that Balances itself out.
No matter what, I DO Recommend one over the other. I Fully Support James Allen the MOST, and here’s why:
James Allen shows you what the Exact Diamond looks like under 10x Magnification.
Blue Nile Does Not!
They just show you a Sample Photo!
The Real View that James Allen Gives you is Worth Every Penny.
It’s Awesome to See and Scope the Stones at all Angles and see the Real Inclusions and Flaws in the Diamonds BEFORE you Buy them!
After all, Diamonds are all Unique, and no two Stones will ever look the Same.
Hence, all SI1 Diamonds will Vary in Appearance. Meaning, some SI1 Diamonds will look Better or Worse than others.
Only if you See them and View what’s Inside the Stone will you know for sure.
As in these two SI1 Clarity Diamonds below…
One Diamond looks more like an I1 Clarity Diamond (Right), while the other Diamond looks more like a VS. But they are both SI1. They both have the same Rating, Grade, Clarity, and GIA Certification.
Crazy isn’t it?
If you didn’t See the Actual Stones, you’d never know there was such a Difference between them.
So Viewing the Actual Diamonds up Close and Personal is Priceless!
Onto the Loose Diamond Deals!
So let’s take a look at some of the Best Deals, Steals and Lowest Prices on James Allen in these Specific Carat Weights: 1/4, 1/3, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 80/100, 90/100, 1 Carat, 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2.00 and 2.50 Carats.
Once again, I made sure that these Stones were Cut with a Grade of Very Good or Excellent (most are Excellent) Cut, which is Very Important for the Sparkle and Beauty of the Stone. SI1 Clarity, so all the Inclusions and Flaws are Microscopic only, with No Visible Flaws (Only seen with a Microscope or a 10x Jeweler’s Loupe). F Color, Pure White Diamond that will be Very Bright and White and really make the Stone “POP“. And GIA Certified, the Best in the business. See Tons More SI1, F, Diamonds HERE!
You’ll love these Diamonds and Love the Prices. Compare them to any Jewelry Store and you’ll see what I mean. :)
Prices may Change and Vary since the Diamond Market can Fluctuate Daily. These Prices were Good at the time of this Post (07-16-2013), also note that Availability will also Change. Diamonds get Sold Quickly and if you see a Stone you Love, you Should Buy it. It does come with a Full 60 Day 100% Money Back Guarantee!
Sounds like a Plan to Me
