If you are planning a proposal or looking to get your wife an updated engagement ring, then you could save yourself some money by buying certified wholesale diamonds. You will then need to find a jeweller to make the item for you, but buying the materials needed wholesale, can lead to significant savings in the money that you need to spend. So where can you find diamonds that are certified, at wholesale prices?
Finding a Wholesale Diamond Dealer
Depending on where you are in the country, there are many reputable dealers that you can contact. One such company is Diamond Queensland in Australia, which offers wholesale prices on certified diamonds, as well as also selling finished jewellery. Ideally you will want to find a dealer that is located close to you so that you can visit their showroom and speak to them in person. With so many people being connected online nowadays, it should be fairly simple to find numerous dealers that are close to you, using the power of the internet.
What to Look for in a Diamond Merchant
Before you visit each company, it is a good idea to do some research on each one, so you get to know a bit about the company. There are many things that you should be looking for such as:
- How long have they been in business?
- What accreditation does the company have?
- Are they a member of any regulatory bodies?
- Do they only trade in certified diamonds and are they conflict free?
- What guarantees do you have?
It is also good to check for blogs and forums to see if you can find any reviews or blogs about previous customers and their experiences with the company in question. The internet can be a great tool to find out information, but you do need to be able to filter through all of the information available so that you can come to a balanced conclusion.
Trust your Instincts
When you visit each establishment, it important to feel safe in investing what could be a considerable amount of money, so you will need to listen to your instincts about each shop. You can add this to what you have found online about the company, and use this to make a well-informed choice of which company you want to buy your diamonds from. After all, we want to be confident that when the salesman says it is a “0.70Ct Princess Cut Diamond”, that he is telling us the truth!
When reflecting on the different shops you have visited, compare how comfortable you were in each establishment, and how comfortable you were with the person that dealt with your enquiry. A good indication of your level of comfort is how much time you spent in the shop; the longer you stayed indicating a greater level of comfort in most cases.
Do Not Rush In
Whether you are buying this as a surprise or making a joint decision, always make sure that you do not rush into making a purchase. Take your time and be prepared to walk away, rather than being pressured into something of which you are not entirely sure. With some careful planning and a bit of research, you will be able to find a reputable and trustworthy diamond merchant. You might also be able to save enough money so that you can get your other half the engagement ring of their dreams!
