Nowadays, we buy cars, boats, airplanes, and even real estate through Internet. What about jewelry? How safe is it to surf the web looking for a good deal, high-quality diamond coming with a wholesale price tag? If you live close to New York wholesale diamonds market or have good connections with a diamond broker in Chicago, you will probably dismiss the whole idea of shopping for diamond jewelry on Internet.
Some deals posted on Craiglist have proven to be worthy of spending hours on the web, “real McCoy”, and some did save lots of money getting pure wholesale diamonds; but some postings — simply fraudulent. If a person selling you a diamond doesn’t provide his or her contact info (phone number) when you request it and always declines the idea of meeting you in person, you should be alerted.
Instead of going through Internet, I would recommend finding your own local reputable jeweler checking out available referrals, comparing the prices with what the New York Wholesale Diamonds market has to offer. My personal jewelers, Mark and Nataliya Hadley have never let me down, and I keep coming back to them whenever I need a special gift for my wife or my mother.
I do believe that if you a looking for a very special gift, you should be guided by someone you trust, someone with a proven record of professional expertise. It is very tempting — hunting for a good deal, but is it worth it if you will get a treated diamond instead of what was promised to you as a natural stone? I don’t believe so. It is not very often that we purchase very expensive gifts for very special people in our lives. When the time comes to do so, I want to be in “good hands” of someone like Mark Hadley, my private jeweler in Denver, CO.
