Welcome back to our site everyone. We have just returned from our diamond buying trip to Antwerp, Belgium, and are VERY pleased with how it went. In particular, we found great success in finding larger sizes up to 3 1/2 carats, some really nice square caraters (princess, radiant, etc.), and filled in some great looking 3/4 carat rounds that are the kind of diamonds everyone is looking for and that are in short supply here in the US. Diamond manufacturers were eager to deal after they found sales at the recent Hong Kong show slower than anticipated.
The real "gems" that we found, though, were in natural fancy colored diamonds. We saw a more abundant supply and a better variety of colors than we have seen for at least 15 years. As a result, we went over budget some on fancy colors; but we have learned over the years that when opportunities like this present themselves one had better act, because they don't often repeat. The most incredible selection of greens, purples, and light blues were available; and we did not pass many up!
Of course, we do not physically bring back diamonds we purchase in Antwerp; they will be coming in the middle of the month sometime via Brinks. We should have all the shipments of our new Antwerp diamonds by the time we post our November update, and well before the thrust of the Christmas season is upon us.
The rest of our holiday inventory is also nearing it's pre-season peak. This includes the largest selection of watches we have ever offered; MORE THAN 500 watches by Seiko, Citizen, and Pulsar! These pieces range in price from $59.99 to over $1,500 with the thrust of the collection priced from $100 to $400.
With the relatively high price of gold now (nearing $1,800 per Troy ounce as we write this), we also feature the largest selction of sterling silver jewelry we have ever had. In sterling silver, we can still offer substantial weight, quality fashion pieces in the $50 to $250 range. Choose from pendants, chains, necklaces, earrings, plus a few rings and brooches.
We cannot help ourselves though...we haven't reduced outr inventory of gold in yellow, white, rose, and multi-tones, and our selection there is as strong as ever too. We look forward to showing you our entire selection soon, and remember layaway is always free of charge. Shop now while the selection is best!
Thanks again for visiting our site, and be sure to check back soon!
