Hi everyone,
we really appreciate your participation in this forum.  Whether it be through posting, or just reading, your presence here is something we treasure.

From time to time, we will feature "forum specials"

For example, here's an awesome new faint yellow emerald cut ring we just got.


This lovely ring has a price on our website of $11,150, which is a very fair price.  Show our appreciation of your participation, we are offering this ring to forum members, and readers for a discounted price of $10,549.

As with all good things, there are a couple of rules:
1) This must be a straight purchase, no trade-ins, or layaway allowed at the forum special price
2  For all of our buyers we offer a 5% discount off of normal prices for bank wire payment.  However, on forum specials we will offer a wire discount of 3%.
3) The special does not run indefinitely.  The forum special price may be withdrawn in the future.


Thank you.  Thank you thank you for coming here and having a good time

So say we get a forum special price and 3% for doing a wire transfer does that mean we can't use that piece in the future for a trade-in?

Hey BR!

No, that would not affect a potential trade up, as long as it meets the other trade up requirements

Hi guys!
Thankfully, we've been heinously busy.  For example, the pendant that Mikla asked about.  It's a beautiful pavé pendant in white gold.  It is at the factory right now.  We picked from a parcel of Sapphires's in the picture... a gorgeous blue Stone. 

We do have a couple amazing things to show you today.  For example:


Shown above is a 3.12ct fancy brownish yellow emerald cut

Below is the parcel of sapphires I was referring to

Is there also a new rule that you will only accept the stones and NOT the setting? (for a trade-up)

HI BR!
thanks for asking about our trade up policy!
Is there also a new rule that you will only accept the stones and NOT the setting? (for a trade-up)

It's not new at all.
The policy was origianlly written to be as liberal as possible in allowing us to accept back the ring, as well as the damond.
However, right from the start, there were times we could not aceept back the ring, but accept the diamond.

We spell out the policy ( here), explaining why some rings are eligible and some rings are not.

Thank you so much for asking about the policy!  I'm proud that we can offer it. Virutally none of our competitors offer anything remotely like it.

Diamonds are like people, put them under a microscope and you`ll always see a flaw but hold them up to the Sun and each and every one is beautiful.

Let's see.. WHO has a PAIR of THOSE, DJ?  ;)

And, Milkla, I think that a pair of the sapphire earrings and the pendant would make a lovely Suite together...  ;D

Yes......well.......I've been gone for a while so I had to make up for lost time........that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Just last night, I finally wore my diamond circle pendant in front of DH.  Here's the conversation:

DH:  "Is that new?"
Me:  "Nope.  Had it quite a while now."
DH:  "Is that real?"
Me:  "Pffffff!  Yeah!"
DH:  *Eyes get real big*  "How long have you had it?"
Me:  "The main diamond I bought 18 months ago.  The circle about 6 months."
DH thinks for a bit.
DH:  "Why didn't you tell me about it?"
Me:  "Because I knew I shouldn't have bought it!"
*I only thought 'duh!' - I didn't actually say it*

Needless to say, we are bound to have many more similar conversations. I love my DH!

OH DJ!  That is hilarious!  My mom would approve.  You could have said "No it is not real" but THAT would have been lying.  ;D
