I purchase my stone from a brick and mortar on Rockville pike. The woman who runs the place is fantastic. She was low pressure. Got a variety of stone in for me to review in order for me to determine what I really wanted. (ie - she knew that I was not going to buy them.) And then she went out of her way to find a stone that fit the paramaters for what I was looking for. Her price was close to a comperable stone I saw at GoodOldGold.com .

If Rockville is not to far a jaunt for you - let me know. I will be glad to post her information.

Hi,

I found what I believe is the absolute best place to buy diamonds in Northern VA (Wahington DC) area. I was referred by a friend who really KNOWS about Diamonds. It is IGS, Inc. They have a website (www.igsdiamonds.com). The guy who runs it also teaches about diamonds at NOVA. If you're looking for 'fluff' (i.e. Tiffany's), you won't find it there, but I promise you will get the absolute best price for the best diamond and you don't have to worry about hype.

Yes there is, I bought my engagement ring at 5 star jewelers in Falls Church VA. They are a mom and pop type of store. They will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about diamonds. All of there diamonds are GIA certified thus guaranteed by an independent authority. You can also use the GIA certificate to ensure proper insurance coverage. The best thing is they are the only store that I am aware of that gives a one year unconditional moneyback guarantee. You never know, better safe than sorry. The only way to get a better deal is by having loose diamonds appraised by a third party. It costs money but is better than being taken advantage of or trusting a salesperson.

Good luck,
Mike

I'm not sure that I'm knowlegable enought to reply--but I always start at the top end and the internet. Once you get an idea of what you want, you can go from there. Even after saying that, most of my diamond purchases have been made in Brussels--when the dollar was strong. Good luck.
