Dan inspecting diamond for a client back home!
We, at Nelsen's Fine Jewelry, Inc (NFJ) have been buying and trading diamonds for over 30 years. Our knowledge of diamonds has been arduous and very rewarding: Taking courses from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), going to speakers involved in the industry, or talking direct with some of the largest diamond suppliers in the world. Over the last few years we have been traveling to Antwerp Belgium to make direct connections with the largest companies in the diamond industry.
In purchasing diamonds there are the four C's; Color, Cut, Clarity, and Carat. If you have done your research these will be well known to you. We have found a 5th C that is not talked about but well known in the industry. Crystal! The Crystalline structure can have a large effect on the brilliance of a diamond and a huge effect on price. Try going to a large internet diamond source, search a very specific diamond like a Round Excellent cut 1.0 ct SI-1 G and then check out the range of prices. This represents the sale-ability of the diamond, the better it looks the more expensive the diamond. Roughly 20% of all diamonds have excellent brilliance which is not listed on the report. This brilliance is from the Crystalline structure of the diamond.
When we go over to Antwerp Belgium and have early access to many diamonds. These diamonds are loosely sorted and priced by the carat. We then have the opportunity to identify theses exceptional diamonds with excellent brilliance and superior Crystalline structure, and get to pass this value on to you. Imagine buying the most expensive diamond on that list for the price of the least expensive one. That's the benefit of our annual trips to Antwerp Belgium.
We have jewelry professionals ready to help.
