Engagement Ring Advisory


An engagement ring is often a person's first major fine jewelry purchase. Congratulations on taking this important step in life! So how do you intend to proceed?


While it's comfortable to consult friends, colleagues, and family for jeweler recommendations, they may not offer the best advice for your particular needs. In fact, their knowledge may be inaccurate and out-of-date. The internet offers as much information as it does misinformation, and buying a diamond online can have both benefits and pitfalls. Have you been reading about lab-grown diamonds, which are are now a viable option for engagement rings?  With so much to understand, consider retaining me as your experienced, educated advisor. I will offer you a personalized engagement-ring buying strategy that will achieve your goals and make the process enjoyable.

We can meet, discuss your ideas, and discern the type of diamond-buying experience you would like to have. As a GIA gemologist with more than 25 years of jewelry sales experience, I will answer any of your questions about diamonds and their grading, pricing, rarity, etc. Once we have met and determined your goals, I will make recommendations of where to shop, schedule diamond viewings by appointment at your convenience, ensure that you are receiving a good value for your money, help you compare and contrast your favorite diamonds, keep you within your budget, and give you my unbiased, educated opinion on the wedding jewelry you are considering. As your advisor, you can rely on me to be fair, honest, and decisive.

If you already own a family diamond or don't want to incorporate diamonds into your rings at all, we will develop a plan specifically for you. If you prefer a vintage piece, I have numerous estate sources for this type of ring as well. Whatever you have in mind for this all-important purchase, it would be my pleasure to assist you.
