Diamond Wave vs Diamond Princess
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.
Diamond Wave is a little newer to the online diamond market than some of the other companies reviewed. They bring to the table an expansive diamond selection and a strong Better Business Bureau rating of A+. This is a family owned company that takes pride in customer service. The only down side is that we could find any method to select a setting for our diamond of choice.
Diamond Wave has a clean and clear website that is easy on the eyes and definitely appealing. Their diamond search engine is straightforward with the option to narrow your search by shape, cut, color, clarity, carat, size and price. Additional options include polish, symmetry, table and depth.
Diamond Wave only offers GIA certified diamonds so that shoppers can know they are buying with confidence. The company also offers a 45 day money back guarantee but, like many jewelers, excludes custom and engraved work.
With nearly 4,900 GIA certified diamonds we like Diamond Wave for the loose stone shopper. For those wanting to select a diamond and then a matching setting, we wished this company offered this option or at least made it a more straightforward obvious choice, if it does exist. We also didn't see, in our sampling, many affordable options. This may be attributed to the high quality certification that comes with these diamonds.
If you are in the market for a GIA certified loose diamond and like a family owned business, this company is worth closer look.
Diamond Princess is a New Jersey based online jewelry store that offers an over abundance of loose diamonds but misses the mark on a less professional website with some technical glitches. This company started in 2008 and currently holds an A Better Business Bureau rating.
Diamond Princess allows the shopper to choose from 9 different diamond shapes, the certification lab, carat size, color, cut, and clarity. Unfortunately we weren't able to further sort or refine our search. We also noticed that, from our sampling, the diamond prices were much higher than other companies reviewed and we couldn't locate an actual diamond certification for viewing. We also weren't able to set the diamond in an engagement ring which was unfortunate and wouldn't meet the needs of many diamond shoppers.
All purchases from Diamond Princess may be returned within 30 days for a full refund if not, altered, engraved or custom made.
While the selection size is huge at Diamond Princess, the search engine is lacking and the prices gave us sticker shock. We wanted to see the actual lab certification, and an option to set the diamond but couldn't find one despite our several attempts.
Diamond Princess offers one of the largest selections of diamonds but misses the mark in a few important ways. If you are in the market for a diamond we recommend you shop a higher ranked company at this time.
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:
