Engagement Ring Advisement


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 their jeweler recommendations, they may not offer the best advice for your particular needs. In fact, their knowledge may be inaccurate. The internet offers as much information as it does misinformation, and buying a diamond online can have its pitfalls. Have you been reading about the new lab-grown diamonds that are available now? With so many questions to be answered, consider retaining me as your experienced, educated advisor. I will offer a personalized engagement-ring buying strategy that will achieve your goals and make the process fun!

We can meet, discuss your ideas, and talk about the type of diamond-buying experience you would like to have. As a GIA gemologist with more than 25 years of jewelry sales experience, of course 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, help you compare and contrast your favorite diamonds, keep you within your budget, and give you unbiased, educated opinions on the wedding jewelry you are considering. As your advisor, you can rely on me to be fair, honest, and decisive. I have no affiliation with any jeweler and am paid no commission.

If you already own a family diamond or don't want to incorporate diamonds into your rings at all, I can recommend jewelers who can best create the ring of your dreams. If you prefer a vintage piece, I have numerous estate sources for this type of ring as well, and can be as involved in the process as you like. It would be my pleasure to assist you with this all-important purchase.
