In September 2003 I purchased some princess cut diamond stud earrings for my wife's birthday. I live in london and so I had a good scout around a large number of jewellery stores, including going to Hatton Garden, to try and get a good buy. Nothing beat diamonds-usa.com for value in the end though.
I had concerns about buying them over the internet, but diamonds-usa delayed payment scheme, and their advice about getting the jewellery valued eased this a bit. Having said this, when I ordered them I received my diamonds in a short period of time, and when I had them valued they were worth significantly more than what I paid for them.
All in all excellent service and value. I have already recommended them to some of my friends and will continue to do so. I would use diamonds-usa again myself with no quarms whatsoever.
Needless to say my wife was well chuffed with her earrings, and I got some good brownie points.
