YOUR DIAMOND IS SOMEWHERE IN ANTWERP, BELGIUM. WE’LL FIND IT FOR YOU.
We’re in full-on travel-planning mode.
Mark Sexton, our diamond buyer and long-time team member, will depart on October 19 for Antwerp, Belgium—the diamond capital of the world—where over 60% of the world’s diamonds are traded. He’ll be dealing directly with leading diamond cutters, which means we’ll be able to offer our customers the very best pricing on the very best quality diamonds.
I vividly remember my first diamond-buying trip.
I knew a little about what to expect from talking with my dad before I left, and I also had my training and experience to rely on. But, it was still intimidating! The security and background checks required just to walk in a diamond vendor’s door were extensive.
I sent each vendor a list of the diamonds I needed in advance, and they set aside parcels of diamonds for me to examine. The list included a .50 CT round diamond for customers who were creating an engagement ring. I knew the couple’s story and personalities well and had them at the top of my mind as I searched through over 100 gems in their quality range and budget. My knowledge of them enabled me to find the diamond of their dreams!
When I work with people to find a diamond, I envision them passing it down to their children someday and telling a story about how it was hand-selected just for them. The weight of that responsibility is intense sometimes—my heart often races as we open the paper to reveal the diamond for the first time. But, it’s a privilege and honor for me to be involved in such a special and unique experience. I sincerely hope people feel a bit of that same excitement every time they look at their diamond.
Because of the enormous selection of top-quality diamonds available in Antwerp, Mark will be able to hand-select diamonds for our customers—in the exact size, shape, quality and price they specify. We guarantee no jeweler will work as hard or as carefully to find your perfect match.
