Ross & Simons vs Diamonds USA

In the jewelry business for over 60 years, Ross & Simons has it down to a science. When it comes to diamond selection, the options are nearly endless at this website. The website is designed generally easy to navigate with some filtration functions to help narrow down the search. Customers will like the large diamond selection as well as the A+ Better Business Bureau rating at the time of review.
The Ross & Simons online shopping experience is busy and a bit cluttered but the navigation options work. Shoppers may choose from 10 different shapes, a price range, carat size, clarity and color. Unfortunately there are not any additional options to drill down to an exact match. We did find a glitch in their website. Over the course of several days we were unable to view the diamond certificate on the website. We are not sure if this was subsequently fixed but was disappointing.
Ross & Simons also allows shoppers to find a setting for their diamond selection. Customers can choose from several categories including classic, solitaire, vintage, side stones, designer and halo. We found a few nice options within the selection.
If the customer is not satisfied with their purchase, Ross & Simons offers a 30 day money back return policy but provides some inclusions that should be reviewed first.
We rated Ross & Simons rather high for their largest selection and strong customer history. However, we were less excited about the look and functioning of the website. They are worth a look but the experience is more discount store shopping without the low prices.
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 Ross & Simons 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:
