Best Diamond Supplier – A Toss Up

Posted on November 21, 2007 @ 7:51 pm

I decided that I wanted to buy my girlfriend a promise ring – but I wanted to make it unique.  I was going to purchase some hand picked loose diamonds and take them to a jeweler to make the ring.  Thing is, I didn’t just want any diamond – I wanted the best diamond for my girl.

So, I went online to find out what people were saying on forums with respect to the best diamond supplier.  I read quite a few posts on these forums and I was able to come up with two possibilities: Houston and San Antonio.

Most people picked Houston because of their prices: they were the cheapest in the country.  That being said, Houston diamonds sometimes had issues with the clarity and color.

The other group of people picked San Antonio diamonds because of their size and clarity.  They were usually available in larger carat sizes and most of the had better clarity for the same price as one from Houston.

I was hoping that I wouldn’t have to make a decision because I could just go with the best diamond supplier.  Instead I have to pick between the two.  This will also mean that I will have to go to both cities and look at my choices.  I guess it makes sense – you usually have make an extra effort to be the best.
