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.

SUN JEWELRY

Sun Jewelry is a California based online jewelry business that claims to have 30 years' experience but doesn't have any record with the Better Business Bureau that we could find. At first we thought Sun Jewelry's diamond search engine was one of the worst on our list but we subsequently ran across this sort of odd place to click that did allow us to filter through their 1200 diamonds, to a certain extent. We also were unenthusiastic about Sun Jewelry's requirement you choose a diamond setting upon check out.

Features:

  • 1,200 diamonds available for purchase
  • 30 day money back return policy
  • GIA, EGL, IGI, HRD, AGS certified diamonds
  • A handful of engagement settings - which are required at purchase of a diamond
  • Simulated or no pictures
  • Online access to diamond certification
  • No BBB rating

Shoppers have the option to click on the diamond shape to see a list of potential diamonds. Unfortunately there's no means of sorting or refining your search. The customer literally has to manually go through a long list of diamonds to find what they are looking for. If you're able to find the diamond navigation area, which took us some time to find, you'll be able to narrow your search by clarity, cut, color, and so on. This was helpful in pinpointing what we were looking for but frustrating that it wasn't an obvious choice, upfront. By shape there are no pictures but within the hidden navigation area a simulated picture will appear. Sun Jewelry didn't advertise they were simulated but when we looked across several we saw the pictures were the same.

At checkout we were further annoyed that we were required to choose a ring setting. Perhaps our purchase is for an existing ring, a pendant or some earrings? We felt many would turn away at this point, if not much sooner. Sun Jewelry does provide a standard 30 day return policy. We aren't sure if they consistently honor that policy without a presence on the Better Business Bureau website to confirm.

Sun Jewelry was ranked low due to the very frustration shopping experience we endured. Bad navigating, a strange checkout process and more were a turn off.

Diamonds

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

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!
