Jared, founded in 1993, is a popular jewelry store chain that runs many commercials with catchy jingles. They also offer an abundant selection of diamonds via their online store. We think shoppers will like their loop technology that allows the customer to look closely at each actual diamond picture to observe the presence of flaws to the visible eye. We thought this was a great option and it seemed to work pretty well. Many say that the trick to finding a good value on a diamond is choosing one that has inclusions but that are not visible on the surface of the diamond - Jared's technology does a good job of allowing shoppers to feel comfortable with their purchase.
Navigating Jared's website is pretty straightforward. Shoppers may choose from 10 different stone shapes, the carat size, price, color and clarity. Additional options including narrowing the selection by polish symmetry and lab certification. The search results may be further organized in ascending or descending order based on size, price and more. Overall, the website does the trick of allowing shoppers to find what their looking for.
In our sample efforts we noticed that many of Jared's diamonds are in the 1 to 2 karat range so for those looking for something larger they may need to shopper a higher ranked company for better selection. The prices also seemed a bit heftier than some of the higher ranked companies.
However, if you're not satisfied with your purchase, Jared's offers a 30 day return option on non-custom jewelry. Please read the fine print before making a purchase.
If you love the idea of using a loop to look for noticeable inclusions than you'll love the online technology that Jared's brings to the diamond market.
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.
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.
To help you find the Best Diamonds, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Jared 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:
