KAY JEWELERS

Kay Jewelers is another chain store that offers a decent selection of diamonds for purchase over the Internet. While chain jewelry stores aren't our favorite choice, we know that many people like them for their good service. When purchasing an item from Kay Jewelers, online, you may take it in for service and repair at a local store. Kay Jewelers also comes with a strong Better Business Bureau A+ rating.

Features:

  • 3,836 diamonds available for purchase
  • 60 days return, 90 day exchange
  • GIA, IGI, AGS certified diamonds
  • 55 engagement settings
  • Actual pictures
  • Diamond certification letters attached
  • A+ BBB rating

The online shopping experience at Kay Jewelers is functional. Shoppers will find the option to sort by diamond shape, color, clarity, carat size, and price. Additional options include narrowing by certification lab, polish, symmetry and more. Customers will appreciate the real pictures of the actual diamonds sold at Kay, along with the option to drag their simulated loupe over the stone to look for inclusions. This is a nice feature that one of the other companies also offers. Many people want to see an actual picture of the diamond and this is a great way to feel like you know what you're buying.

Once you've chosen a diamond the website allows the option to choose a matching setting. Unfortunately there's only a limited selection compared to many other companies reviewed.

Kay offers a nice 60 day return and 90 day exchange policy if you're not satisfied with your purchase. Please see the specific policy online to identify any exclusions.

Overall, Kay Jewelers has serviced millions of happy customers and will continue to do so with their online options. We were less excited about the diamond and setting selections at Kay but appreciate the perfect BBB score and customer policies.

DIAMOND WAVE

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.

Features:

  • 4,865 diamonds available for purchase
  • 45 day money back return policy
  • GIA only certified diamonds
  • No option to set the diamond
  • Simulated pictures
  • Diamond certification letters attached
  • A+ BBB rating

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.

Diamonds

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

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!
