Unlike most Internet jewelers, at Diamond Design Co. each piece of jewelry is carefully designed and crafted by our in-house jewelers.
Need it wider, smaller, more stones, less stones, a different metal or precious stone, NOT A PROBLEM. Our jewelry is made-to-order-, "made by us for you".
To buy something so rare and precious, unbiased and precise standards of comparison are necessary. A diamond shopper must, at a minimum, become acquainted with the industry standard 4Cs (carat, cut, clarity, color) and the basics of diamond grading technologies & approaches.

Our diamond buyer is trained by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and has over 17 years experience in the diamond industry. To ensure the highest quality diamonds for our customers and in our products, prior to mounting we grade each diamond on a Sarin Diamension proportion grading machine and a Gran Colormeter.
The Sarin DiaMension proportion analyzer provides the most accurate evaluation of diamond proportion measurements available today. It is used by GIA, American Gem Society (AGS) and other gemological laboratories to analyze diamond proportions. The Gran colormeter is used to grade color, a key-determining factor of a diamond's beauty and value. Our colormeter is set to strict GIA standards.
All our diamonds (unmounted,larger than .25ct.) come with an Appraisal and Sarin DiaMension Diamond Grade Report from our GIA Diamond Graduate and a full 30-Day return policy. Exchanges for upgrades are also available based on current market conditions. By request, GIA and AGS certifications are also available on all our diamonds for an additional fee.
At Diamond Design Co. we believe that "unbiased" education is key to informed purchases that you'll be satisfied with and appreciate the true value of your investment. Learn more about Diamonds.
