BLUE NILE

Blue Nile leads the pack as the world's largest online retailer of certified diamonds. Shoppers love both the huge diamond selection and the customer friendliness of Blue Nile. The website is superb, the selection is gigantic and the prices are extremely competitive. If you're in the market for a diamond, Blue Nile is a great place to start.

Some of Blue Nile's features include:

  • Over 146,000 diamonds available for purchase
  • 30 day money back return policy
  • GIA certified diamonds
  • 200+ engagement settings
  • Simulated pictures
  • Online access to diamond certification
  • A+ BBB rating

The benefits of shopping at Blue Nile start with the professional website. When we first encountered the huge diamond selection at Blue Nile we were worried that the shopping experience would be lengthy and cumbersome. However, it's actually the most sophisticated website we visited. The options to narrow and tweak the selection of diamonds to exactly what you're looking for is impressive. You can choose the diamond color range, carat size, price, and clarity, as well as the polish, depth, length to width ratio, and more. Once you see the results, you can sort the diamonds, compare different stones, and view the diamond certification report online.

Whether you're looking for a loose diamond, an engagement ring, a new set of earrings, or a pendant, Blue Nile lets you quickly and easily build beautiful jewelry from the convenience of your own home.

Many online diamond customers are looking for the best diamond for an engagement ring. For these shoppers, Blue Nile provides more than 200 engagement settings to choose from. We really liked that this company offers diamonds ranging from very small to very large, so they offer diamonds that can meet any budget.

The diamonds sold at Blue Nile all include a GIA report which is the highest regarded diamond grading company in the world. That means that when you buy from Blue Nile, your diamond will be exactly what you expect. The GIA reports are visible online and help you determine where the inclusions sit on the diamond, the exact measurements of the diamond, and more.

Blue Nile's excellent BBB rating of A+ is just one more reason you can feel comfortable shopping at this diamond retailer. Their huge diamond selection and affordable pricing mean you'll get more diamond for your money, and their guarantee backs that up. If you're in the market for a diamond, Blue Nile should be your first choice. They earn our highest rating.

DIAMONDS USA

Diamonds USA is a New Jersey based company that has been in the online jewelry business since 2008. We found their list of available diamonds to be abundant but their website clunky and unfriendly. Without being able to look at an actual picture of the diamond or the actual lab certification we felt that shoppers would be selecting their diamond without confidence. Diamonds USA also lost points for inventory sorting issues that increased our search time.

Features:

  • 19,562 diamonds available for purchase
  • 30 day money back return policy
  • GIA, EGL, and their own certified diamonds
  • 150 engagement settings
  • Simulated pictures
  • Simulated diamond certification letters attached
  • A BBB rating

Diamonds USA provides shoppers the option to sort by shape, price range, carat size, lab certification, color, clarity and cut. Our first disappointment was when the long list of results appeared we were unable to sort or organize for a quick scan. Next, the provided pictures are simulated, which is acceptable but when we couldn't see an actual copy of the lab certification letter we lost interest in Diamonds USA. We're not sure who would want to pick a diamond based on such few details.

Purchases at Diamonds USA do come with a 30 day money back guarantee for non-custom, engraved or resized jewelry. This is a pretty typical return policy across the board of loose diamond retailers.

Diamonds USA also doesn't appear to sell any diamonds smaller than .82 carats at a starting price of $1,400.00 which will not meet the needs of many looking to purchase smaller diamonds for pendants, earrings, rings and the like. Similarly, we couldn't find any option to set the diamond.

Despite a strong BBB rating and a huge inventory of diamonds, Diamonds USA misses the mark in website functionality and more importantly, allowing the customer to see some evidence of the stone they are buying. We struggled to find any good reason to choose Diamonds USA over a top rated company.

Diamonds

To help you find the Best Diamonds, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Blue Nile and Diamonds USA.

If you've purchased a loose diamond before, you know that it's both an art and a science. Carat size, color, certification, depth, symmetry, retail mark-up, and many other factors determine the ultimate price of a diamond.

Most retail diamond stores are typically equipped to provide you with only 2 or 3 choices of stones in your desired size and price range. That means that you'll most likely have to drive between several retail locations, trying to find a diamond that you can afford and feel confident about.

While the task of finding the right diamond has traditionally been a frustrating and time-consuming process, the internet has made all this much easier. With the introduction of online diamond stores in the last few years, you now have access to thousands of diamonds, and can easily choose the color range, clarity, cut, and more that you're looking for. You can also compare several diamonds at the same time to find the best diamond at the best price.

Not all online diamond stores are the same. Before making your big diamond purchase, you should consider the following:

  • Selection. How large is the diamond selection? Will there be a substantial selection of all diamond cuts in various grades and color?
  • BBB Rating. What kind of history does the company have with their customers?
  • Return Policy. If your diamond purchase shows up at your doorstep but doesn't dazzle you, will you be able to return it for a full refund?
  • Settings. Will you be able to set your diamond purchase in a beautiful mounting, if so desired?
  • Diamond Certification. What lab certification companies review the diamond selection? Will you be buying the best quality diamond for the money?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Diamond Stores available today. We hope these reviews help you find the perfect diamond that you're looking for!
