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.

DIAMOND PRINCESS

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.

Features:

  • 16,150 diamonds available for purchase
  • 30 day money back return policy
  • GIA, EGL, AGS certified diamonds
  • No engagement setting options
  • Simulated pictures
  • No certification letters attached
  • A BBB 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.

Diamonds

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

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!
