New York: The best place to buy diamonds: Part II

Our last article dealt with the way in which the deals are done for the stones that finally end up as the showstoppers in your favourite jewelry. We also read up about how the Diamond District in New York came about. This article will look to find the main reasons why NYC is the best place to buy your diamond jewelry.

Why NYC is the best place in the world to buy diamonds?

There are few places on earth that can go toe to toe with the Big Apple on any and all parameters. If Paris is the gateway to European trends and fashion, Milan is the cutting edge fashion capital of the world and Berlin is where the avant-garde resides… NYC is by far the most cosmopolitan, stylish and all encompassing city of them all. Little wonder then that NYC is one of the world’s top shopping destinations.

Saks 5th Avenue, Barney’s and Sears are just some of the most iconic shopping meccas in the world. The Upper East Side and the Village are hubs for the uber stylish to attend the latest in gallery openings. Not to mention the culture and art scene characterized by Broadway and Manhattan. Why then would this not be the perfect place to buy diamonds.

1) You are always assured of new styles: NYC is one of the trendsetters in world fashion, by default then, if there’s something particularly offbeat and eye catching you seek, this will be the best place to get it! Fashion stylist Anne Bryce, has this to say, “when you think about style and fashion, there are few places that compare to New York. With a vast majority of diamonds in North America passing through NY’s diamond district and the sheer number of establishments dealing in fine jewelry, it is almost assured you’ll find the best pieces here!”    

2) There’s something for everyone: New York has something for everyone, in every sense of the word. If you have a good time in mind, you could easily dine at the some of the world’s best restaurants here, if you have the budget for it. Or you can simply grab a hotdog in Central Park or Riverside. This is true in the case of diamonds as well. Whether you want your lady to have a rock that will bowl her over and make her the envy of her friends, or you’re looking at a modest sized stone, the diamond district will have something for either end of the budgetary spectrum.

3) It is called the Diamond district for a reason: If you’re thinking about range, picture this, almost 2600 establishments, from the uber chic to the family owned jewelry businesses, to firms that specialise in estate jewelry, the Diamond district has them all! It is after all called the Diamond District!

Things to beware of when shopping for diamonds in NYC
      Bright light makes everything white: Examine the diamond in the natural light of day, outside the store to be sure of its true colour
      Heavily marked down prices: If the price of a diamond is too good to be true, it probably isn’t, beware of heavily marked down prices
      Always ask to see the GIA certification of the diamond: GIA certified diamonds are worth the price, because you’re paying for what you can see in writing
      Beware of fake, artificial or lookalike stones
