How do I find out the price for an engagement ring I saw on your web site?

You choose the size and quality of your diamond, and the karat of gold or platinum for your ring. Any ring can be made to fit almost any budget. So the price for any particular ring can vary widely, depending on the choices you make. A diamond consultant at our store can walk you through the process of choosing a diamond ring that is tailored to your preferences and your budget.


Do you carry anything other than engagement and wedding rings?

Absolutely. We also carry an extensive selection of earrings, rings, pendants, bracelets, gemstone jewelry, and other diamond jewelry.


I've looked through all of the styles on your web site, but I can't quite find the ring I had in mind. Are there more styles I could see?

Only some of our designs are currently featured on our web site. If you don't see the style you're looking for on our web site, drop by our store to see our full selection of diamond jewelry and thousands of diamond ring designs.


Do you offer financing for my jewelry purchase?

Yes, financing is available. You can contact any of our retail showrooms for details.


How much should I spend on a diamond engagement ring?

How long has your company been in business?

How should I care for my diamond jewelry?

With proper care and maintenance, your diamond jewelry can last many years. Here are a few tips to help you prolong the life of your jewelry.

Your precious diamond jewelry is best stored in individual jewelry cases or cloth pouches. Products such as lotions, soaps, perfumes and powders and hair sprays can affect the brilliance of the diamonds by leaving a film on them. Diamond has the property of repelling water but readily accepts wax and grease. This causes it to get greasy and soiled. The diamond jewelry needs to be cleaned with care. Soaking the jewelry for a short while in a solution of liquid dishwashing and following it with a mild and gentle scrubbing can do wonders for your precious ice stones. The jewelry can be patted dry with a lint-free cloth.

You can get your diamond jewelry professionally cleaned every 3 months or so. Do not wear your diamond rings or ear studs when participating in sports and swimming. Though diamonds are one of the hardest materials known to man, they can be chipped by hard impact. A little care can go a long way in maintaining the brilliance of these icy stones.
