Annie- February 2, 2016 at 10:04 pm I want to give a shout-out for ID Jewelry in the diamond district. I think it was two or three years ago my husband and I purchased a diamond eternity band from there. I don’t have all the specs with me at the moment, but we didn’t go for a chintzy ring. It was well above average in quality and size to compliment our already 2+ carat solitaire engagement ring. We shopped quite a few stores on 47th as well as the insanely priced jewelry houses (Graff, Cartier, Tiffany, DeBeers, etc etc) and ID Jewelry was the best find. We had the eternity band shipped to our home in Minnesota to avoid taxes. Got it appraised at a local jeweler near home and I think it appraised for triple the cost of what we paid. I did alot of researching online before we even set foot in the diamond district and it paid off. There were alot of customers in the ID Jewelry store (they have a positive reputation!), but all four of the sales people we spoke with (including the owner who does the actual diamond cutting) were informative, straightforward, and nice. It probably was a little easier for them to show interest in us since we were seriously looking to purchase, but even so, it was a much more comfortable environment than most of the other stores we stopped at. To conclude, absolutely do your due diligence to understand diamonds in general and ideally each store specifically before shopping 47th St. This was a pretty decent article.

What started as a stress-relieving hobby has become two NYC stores and quite the cult following for Erica Weiner’s jewelry range. The namesake collection is all priced under $200, while the 1909 line incorporates all of the hallmarks of fine jewelry, interpreted with the designer’s charm. The stores also sells a selection of antique pieces sourced from around the world.

Paul Gian- April 15, 2015 at 1:54 am The opening and closing hours for various stores vary from one business to another. The stores along the main walkway are generally open on weekends but many of those that are located inside the higher levels of buildings aren’t. Diamonds are priced as commodities. In general, if you don’t shop at branded stores like Tiffany or Cartier, you shouldn’t expect to see a huge premium on the pricing of a diamond. Based on my experience, the pricing in NYC isn’t cheaper. On the contrary, they are generally higher because of the expensive rents that the stores have to pay. This overhead is always factored into the list price of products you see there.

Paul, Can you stir us in the direction of resolving issue with diamond district jewelry. My wife bought a 3 + carat diamond which was misrepresented at time of purchase and lack of disclosure about fluorescence and verbally told it was a G and the certificate came through as an H…Upon private appraisal the color is actually a J/K and not a VS2 but a SI1. Of course, we immediately indicated issue to Jeweler who of course inposed no cash refund but upgrade possible. Foolishly we bite the bullet and said ok, let’s go for an upgrade. This has been going on for over a full year where we make visits to their store and they continue to not show us natural diamonds even though we have made it crystal clear we do not want enhanced diamonds. They do appear to be pull diamonds from a collective group of diamonds as available to other jewelers in the area. They have admitted out of respect for us they want to rectify the situation and give us a better diamond which of course we biting the bullet would pay more, but so far, they have shown us nothing which meets our natural, no enhancement criteria. They did try to sell us a diamond which we almost bought which was gorgeous and then when we left the store to make a final decision realized on the certificate it was HPHT. When we returned and said no way, you did not disclose this to us, the salesmen literally lied to our faces and said he had disclosed this to us. They also advertise on their site that they WOULD give a 100% refund IF their ring certificate did not match what ring was received…My wife has great faith that folks will do the right thing, but this jewelry group are very kind, charming but obviously slick and not willing to do the right thing. At this point, she wants to tell them she did find a diamond available to many stores in the diamond district….IF they can show this to us and she is satisfied with this ring, she would purchase it but if they cannot deliver , we want a refund and are willing contact the attorney general, consumer protection groups, BBB for selling falsely…Oh the diamond was EGL and wonder if we could join in a class action suit that we read about. They also in their written advertisement that ring price would fair market value or above.. Well, we overpaid based on our appraisal. What legal advice or advice in general to pursue getting a refund at this point.? And online we were able to see that they did have some settlements but no details or specifics available. There has to be some Achilles heel for jewelry stores so they do do “the right thing”. We have in good faith followed their policy but they just are not coming through with any diamonds that are not clarity enhanced or have a yellow tint. Thanks for listening. Rob
