November/December 2015
by Hacker Jewelers
Hi again everyone, and special wishes for a safe and joyful holiday season! We have returned from our recent trip to Antwerp, Belgium, and it was another memorable one. Diamond dealers were eager to deal as they were looking to reduce inventory levels and improve their cash position for year’s end.

We found everything we were looking for (and more). There were great buys in natural fancy yellow diamonds and we picked up several GIA certified stones in sizes just under one carat. The color on these diamonds is really remarkable and ranges from fancy yellow to fancy intense yellow. We continue to have one of the best inventories of natural fancy colored diamonds in the area, and this trip really solidified that.

We also got great buys on square cushion and radiant cuts; although we really had to work hard for buys on well-cut stones. Most of the cushions and radiants were noticeably rectangular and/or were poorly cut. But, after lots of looking at and rejecting literally hundreds of diamonds that we looked at, we were able to find those diamonds that really “pop” and are square enough to give you the flexibility of setting them in a halo, diagonally, or however you imagine you want them set. We bought these popular cuts in sizes ranging from about 0.60 carat to over one carat.

Much of our time was spent in matching up pairs of diamonds. Many of these will go in the ever-popular diamond stud earring basics, and some were selected for those new 2-stone diamond styles that are trending now. Remember that we have a generous trade-up policy for solitaire diamond jewelry. As long as the diamonds aren’t damaged, you will always get at least what you paid toward bigger/better diamond studs, solitaire pendants, or solitaire rings any time you’d like to trade them in; you can’t lose!

As we write this, precious metal prices are around their lowest price in the last six years. Not many things can you buy right now that are priced like they were in 2009…and more than 30% less than they were just two or three years ago. But that is the case with gold, silver, and platinum jewelry. Take advantage of this market and make this the Christmas your loved one will remember for years to come!

Thanks again for visiting our site. Be sure to check out all of the goings-on here in Tecumseh, and remember that we have extended holiday hours in December that include being open seven days a week and many evenings. Again, we wish you and yours a very happy holiday season!
