How To Buy / Questions

Are all of your diamonds genuine antique diamonds?

Yes, all of our diamonds are genuine antique diamonds meaning most have been cut over a hundred years ago. Some diamond company's offer "antique diamonds" that are cut to look old but they were cut during modern times, we do not. Since we have been collecting these antique diamonds for the past 25 years, we have more than 1500 genuine antique diamonds.

Does an antique diamond have as much sparkle, fire & beauty as a modern round brilliant?

Many people would argue that these diamonds have even more sparkle & beauty than a modern cut diamond. The unique faceting on an Old European, Old Mine or Antique Cushion have been described as very charming and romantic. Learn more about the beauty of antique diamonds.

Do you sell matched pairs for earrings?

Are your diamonds certified?
