One of The Best place to shop for jewelry!!!!!!!!
I wanted to thank Emanuel for the wonderful experience! Great place and very knowledgeable people. I am not one to write reviews, but I had to make an exception for SEA WAVE DIAMONDS! They have a wide selection of diamond engagement rings and wedding bands. I get a lot of compliments on my ring daily. I will definitely come back to get our wedding bands and I am sure they'll do a great job. I would highly recommend them to my friends and suggest that they do the same as I did. Thank you again!

My (now) fiance went to Sea Wave to purchase my engagement ring. They were helpful and knowledgeable and made what could be a stressful process an enjoyable one.

From my perspective, their after sales service was unparallelled in that they re-sized the ring and answered any questions I had.

Not to mention, that my diamond ring sparkles like nothing I've ever seen :)

After getting engaged and needing to purchase a new setting due to size issues my fianc and I walked into sea wave randomly on a sat morning while browsing in the diamond district. It was still early and seawave was one of only a handful of stores open. And I'm so thankful they were because I found exactly what I was looking for. From the second we walked in we felt comfortable. These guys are not pushy jewelry salesman AT ALL. Their number one prioirity was helping me find the perfect setting for ME. Alex was our guy and was extremely knowledgeable. Upon looking at my center stone he immediately knew the exact color, cut, carat weight and clarity. After patiently looking at photos on my ipad of the type of setting I was looking for he presented me with many options before I found the one I'd been looking for. He agreed to buy back my original setting for a fair price and promised my new one would be ready in 2-3 weeks, which it was. He then had us watch while my stone was reset into the new setting and it's nothing short of stunning. the craftsmanship is flawless. We'll definitely be back to purchase our wedding bands since I've already tried on the matching one to my gorgeous ring :). Go here. You won't regret it. All the guys there are very knowledgable, honest, down to earth and aim to please without any pressure.

My fiancee and I went to Sea Wave diamonds for our engagement ring. We were looking for the best price, and having been part of the retail game myself, I know what's a reasonable price for any item. Bottom line is, if I feel I am being cheated, I will know. So Emmanuel started off at $3300 for a piece that, according to Emmanuel, was not certified, clarity enhanced (which ill give him credit, was honest enough to mention) princess cut, si2, g color grade 1 carat + .84 carats worth of g grade si 1-2 diamonds on a 14k gold size 8 1/4 scant ring. As a businessman, i know there is generally 10-15% of play as a negotiator's safety net, so i brought it down to $2850. Now, what is 70% of 2850? (The price of the ring before tax) This is the average markup rate for diamonds within this price range. This is exactly $1995. That's alot of money. Think about it, jewelers buy jewelry back from people for 33% of it's value at best! I would say that 12.5 percent would be a good amount for overhead (249.37), another 12.5 for employees (249.37) we are left with approx $1500 at this point. The time spent working on my ring I would say was 3 hours total, not including the time it sat in a vat of chemicals for cleansing (I'll say $100 is reasonable for this apprenticeship based work: 33 bucks an hour is good money, and there is no shortage of labor in this field). The amount of time selling me the ring, including receipt and processing (I'll give that 100). We are now left with $1300 of play. Insurance for the store and the item replacement, I'd put aside $300 for that; it's only fair, but a mishap may happen in 1 out of ten rings, so I'd say $3000 is pretty good amount to lean back on just in case, and this is being generous. We have 1000. Do I think this is alot of profit? Yes; too much. I've sold $30,000 kitchens at PC Richard and Son and got paid half of that. The jewelry business is a lucrative trade for sure. The guy that sold the ring to me, Emmanuel, is the owner of the store. If you think I am exaggerating about markups, read this, I'm actually being quite generous. http://www.toptenz.net/top-10-biggest-price-markups.

I refuse to have someone make $1000 of profit off me, so I made sure to get the ring appraised from appraisers who DO NOT sell jewelry. Appraisal value of my ring was $3400, but that does not matter, my ring could only be sold for at best $1000. On top of that, my receipt from sea wave showed for a ring that was 1.84 carats of total diamond. The appraiser only found 1.50. Sea wave didn't even disclose to me that 20 of the smaller diamonds on the ring were smaller still than 56 of the small diamonds. Emmanuel counted for each one to be the same carat amount (0.0105 carats) which would total .80 carats approximately. However, the appraiser found that 56 of the diamonds were only .007 carats, and the other 20 were .004 carats? On top of that, the inclusion rating was found to be an I2, not an SI2!. Now, you tell me. Are you going to trust the opinion of an independent appraiser who DOES NOT sell jewelry and has 30 years of experience, or are you going to trust a man who's been in business for approximately 13 years? When I told this to Emmanuel, he said, "I'll give you your diamonds, but never come back here to do business or I will call the cops." I know I got a little personal with the guy, but still, wouldn't you also be upset if your receipt showed for something you did not pay for? You be the judge. 2 inclusion grades down and a A.34carat discrepancy that is 16% off without full disclosure about the size of the smaller diamonds was not a good enough argument for emmanuel to do something about it without kicking and screaming about it. If thats not enough for him to admit he messed up, i don't know what is. Although I'm getting the diamonds added, I'm not happy with the fact that the main diamond is two inclusion grades down from what I was told on the receipt. I'm tired of having to go back and forth, and i have no time to be nit picky; + no one should have to go through this. The jewel looks good from the top, but still, it's a matter of principle and my experience for simply pointing out an obvious discrepancy is not acceptable. I highly doubt Emmanuel lost any money in dealing with me considering what the feedback I've gotten from friends, family and the Internet says about this business, coupled with my own experience in retail. I estimate that he still pocketed $200 from this sale, I think this is fine and reasonable, no way I'm letting him pocket $1000. In all of my years working at pc richard and son, I must have seen maybe $200 in commission from 4 of those transactions out of 100 $3000 sales I've had. A jeweler is usually in it to make 150k-200k a year. I'm sorry, but I know teachers and special educators who deserve that sort of money, and a jeweler, no offense, will NEVER deserve more money than any of these two necessary and noble professions in my book.

Hi

I'm here giving an honest opinion from my experience with Sea Wave Diamonds. My fiancee and I bought our wedding rings from them.

PROS - The staff is nice, they have great variety and affordable prices. We bought our rings and were quite happy with our selection.

CONS (BIGGEST CON) - However, one fine day, my fiancee checked my ring carefully and it was "18k" inscribed over it which indicates that it was a white gold (instead of platinum which we had asked for). A platinum should have "P75" over it. Believing it to be platinum, we had already paid the price of platinum while buying. Before buying, we wrote down the price differences between Platinum and white gold to get a more detailed information. Alex told us very clearly giving some specific figures that Platinum is almost double in price as compared to white gold. We discovered this issue months after our wedding. Thanks to my fiancee's alertness for spotting it out else we would have never known it.

When we went to Alex, he checked it and accepted his mistake. However, he gave a contradictory statement and double crossed us about the price differences between Platinum and white gold. He said there is a mere difference of $200-$300 between them.
The ring that I had bought (white gold thinking to be it Platinum) was for $1600. Alex told that he could refund the difference but not more than $300, which irked us as he started playing games with us. He gave a mere excuse that such mixups do happen in trade. I asked him, "You people don't make mistakes (charge less) while charging the customers and those guys gave some lame excuse as usual. In compulsion, we had to get my ring replaced to platinum as Alex was stubborn on the price difference.

These traders don't understand that there are certain memories associated with a ring. We didn't mind getting a replacement (Platinum ring) but it would have been fair if we had got the refund for the ring which had been used for our wedding.

This was sheer cheating by Sea Wave Diamonds and I vow not to go to these people ever again. Alex, if you cheated us on purpose then you are a loser.

We have purchased our engagement ring and wedding bands from Sea Wave. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. They offer an incredible selection of the highest quality diamonds and jewelery which they can fully customize. You can look around for a better bargain, but you will not find it. We'll definitely be back.

My fiance has bought me a few pieces jewelry from Sea Wave - a necklace, a pair of earrings, and, most importantly, my engagement ring!! He worked with them to customize it and it is exactly what I want (even though I had no input) and is gorgeous! The detail work on the band is incredible.\n\nI had never been there until last weekend, when we went to look at wedding bands. Alex was super helpful and guided us in picking out matching bands that we adore. \n\nEven better, they are super accommodating. The chain on the necklace broke (after 2+ years of almost daily wear, including to sleep) and they fixed it (for free!) within a couple days. I also bumped my ring not too long after I got it, and cracked one of the pave diamonds on the ""cage"" of the center stone. Alex convinced his jeweler to stay late for me to fix it while I waited so I wouldn't have to be without it, and again for free! \n\nThey have great customer service. A lot of places in the diamond district feel like they are hustling you... not here! I highly recommend Sea Wave.

Mike was very helpful the whole way through. Having looked at just about every other jewellers on 47th I was close to giving up. Most of them are creepy and pushy.\r\nMike was honest and extremely patient. All he told me tied up with the research I had done. I was nervous as I told him on the Wednesday pm. what I wanted (having changed my mind once!) and I was to collect just 47 hours later! (Just before my flight home). The platinum ring, with 5 emerald cut diamonds in a bar setting exceeded my expectations. I was never pushed to go for bigger or better diamonds, and the price was very fair. Next time, I'll save myself a lot of time and go straight to Sea Wave. Thanks again!

My fiance worked with Emanuel to design and create my engagement ring. I had nothing to do with it and it blew my mind. It is absolutely gorgeous. The details and craftsmanship are incredible. I have gotten so many compliments on it. The day after my fiance gave it to me, I visited Emanuel to have it sized. He was so kind and very excited for me and proud of his work. I asked him to have it sized while I waited in a coffee shop nearby because I didn't want to part with it for very long. It was ready for me a few hours later. I look forward to going back to shop for wedding bands at Sea Wave. I highly recommend Emanuel and his team.

I was referred to this place from a friend at work. She didn't know much about diamonds and all, but stated she enjoyed her time there and felt comfortable. I was looking to purchase an engagement ring with a budget in mind. Of course, I did a little bit of research prior to going there so I kind of knew what I was looking for.

Alex was the person who helped me. He brought out a few loose diamonds and showed me the difference in diamond and in price. In the end, the vibe I got from him was that there is no point for me to pay tons of $$ on a diamond which a normal person wouldn't be able to tell a difference.

I didn't negotiate much on the price as I knew they were making a few hundred bucks off of the diamond anyways. I also got separate two side stone which he upgraded the quality by 1 standard free of charge.

In terms of pricing... sea wave was pretty fair. No highjack prices. They still need overhead coverage, salary, etc.
Customer service was nice. I felt comfortable, didn't feel pushed into getting something I wasn't willing to pay... didn't show attitude when I asked to see more items. Help me set the ring higher.

Would I buy from there again? I definitely will.

We have been shopping with SEA WAVE DIAMONDS for many years and they always make sure we are extremely satisfied with any of our purchases whether its big or small. We love all our diamond jewelry that SEA WAVE DIAMONDS have created from scratch. Recently my husband purchased an eternity rind of my dreams that is a total weight of 11.50 carats all certified by (GIA)
The ring is amazing and no matter which jeweler sees my ring they are just amazed of the beauty that it is. We highly suggest SEA WAVE DIAMONDS for all your special requests they will definitely deliver the quality they promise.

When I was looking at engagement rings, I stopped into Sea Wave Diamonds, and I am so glad I did! They have beautiful pieces, and they can help you create anything because they do all of their work themselves. The atmosphere is both friendly and professional, which makes shopping for expensive items a little less anxiety provoking. My fiance went back there to purchase and further design my ring, and it came out absolutely beautiful! When it came time to shop for wedding bands we knew exactly where to go, and we couldn't be happier with the result! They will work with whatever your price point is and tell you honestly what your options are. I love this place and would recommend Sea Wave to everyone!

After checking out several diamond stores and jewelers we decided to stop by Sea Wave Diamonds based on the great Yelp reviews. We were definitely NOT disappointed. We knew exactly what we were looking for so that made us a little bit easier to please. Alex was very straight forward from the get go.

Alex the owners assisted us and we were extremely pleased with him and the company. Alex went out of his way to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted and that we were pleased with the outcome. Alex was very knowledgeable and answered all our annoying questions with a smile and a great attitude. He personally hand picked the diamonds for our rings and did a fantastic job matching all of them, they are perfect.

Sea wave diamonds stand behind their products and even followed up to make sure we were happy and offered to clean and inspect our rings whenever we wanted at no additional charge.

Great fast service and great quality makes for happy customers. We will definitely shop there again. Thanks Alex!! We'll definitely be back again. Don't search all over the city, Sea Wave Diamonds is the real deal.

I love the knowledge and professionalism by staff at SEA WAVE DIAMONDS.\r\nALEX, and other staff were patient, unintrusive, and helpful above and beyond... \r\n\r\nJewelry:\r\nThe variety of loose diamonds, estate, and fine jewelry is unbeatable.\r\n\r\nAtmosphere:\r\nQuiet, respectful, private, comforting, welcoming, and refined.\r\n\r\nPrice: \r\nPrices are great because they're more than reasonable.\r\n\r\nOverall:\r\nLovely confections. I just hope SEA WAVE DIAMONDS doesn't change; their jewelry, service, and price, all make them shine above the rest. \r\n

My fiance and I were almost sucka punched with a wedding band set purchase. We started to do some research on the rings we wanted and found Sea Wave reviews. The reviews were honest, real and positive we had to come see for ourselves. Mike gave us his undivided attention although we had our 22 month old son with us. Mike really worked hard to please us and find the bands we love. Even during pick up of the rings, my ring had to be resized three times. Mike resized my ring two times himself. The price was a little out of range but we managed it since Mike gave us a great deal. Every time we look at our rings we smile and are so happy we dodged that punch from the other jeweler and came out winners with our bands. Oh I know I should mention that we were married the day after we picked our rings so even the timing was excellent. Mike also showed us the value of our purchase and let who he was shine through at times. The staff was friendly to our son and even played with him at times. Thank you and in particular Mike a toast to you and the friendly staff at Sea Wave.

I was familiar with the quality and price of the product at Sea Wave. So when it was time for me to get engaged, it was only natural that I would pay them a visit. My fianc and I headed out to buy the perfect ring, and I told her that we would find it at Sea Wave. She was more concerned with getting a good deal and told me that ""No matter how much we like the rings, we still have to bargain for a great deal."" Once she saw the merchandise, she was sold. We had a side-bar and the deal was done. It took us less than fifteen minutes to settle on what we wanted. When we picked up the rings, mine was too big. I went back about three times to have it adjusted, and each time it was done without charge or worry. I promised Alex that he would see me soon, and I went back and got a necklace to present to my fianc on our wedding day. The best part is that her ring appraised for almost double what we paid for it. The only downfall is now I am going to keep going back. Who doesn't like a good deal?

One of my favorite jewelry stores SEA Wave Diamonds was just renovated, so the store feels much bigger and much lighter.\r\nI love every single one of them - Ive come here on quite a few occasions looking for very special very specific things and Sea Wave Diamonds really helped tremendously.\r\nMy dad and I wanted to get a diamond necklace for my mom, and we knew what she wanted and how we pictured it, we just couldnt find it ANYWHERE. The other jewelers just sighed and offered us something else, like a nice big engagement ring, which was awkward given that I was with my DAD!!! Sea Wave Diamonds saved us - they figured out exactly what we needed, and special-ordered the damn thing, so we picked it up at the store one week later! The necklace was absolutely beautiful, and the whole process was completely stress free!\r\n\r\n

When I first came across this shop I couldn??t believe it, the hand made jewelry was stunning, from simple rings to huge bright stones and gems in cool, sexy colors.
The staff are very friendly and will always try to help you as much as they can without making you feel like you have to buy something.
A lot of items are handmade, I thought the prices were very reasonable and every piece I have ever bought people have always commented on how pretty it was. If you love your jewelry and are looking for something a bit different then you definitely have to give this shop a look in. I promise, you won??t be disappointed.

I can't even give SEA Wave one star. We purchased our wedding rings there. After only three weeks of wearing a pave diamond band, one of the diamonds came out after ""light wear"" - basically wearing my wedding ring to work and that's it, where I don't work with my hands or do anything strenous. It was a hassle to have the diamond fixed, took forever, I had to pay for shipping and they acted like it was my fault the diamond came out so soon - unbelieable.\r\nAfter getting the diamond wedding band back, I noticed that part of the white gold near where the diamond was replaced looked off and was dented in from where they did the work. When I called to discuss getting it fixed, Alex made excuses for why it took them so long to fix my ring and why it wasn't inspected prior to being sent back to me. He started screaming at me saying I did something to the ring which is why the diamond came out - yeah right after such a short time there was no reason for it. He said I should just return the ring if I am unhappy with it. He refused to fix the ring and was extremely negative and insulting. Needless to say I have an imperfect wedding ring but don't want to and don't feel I should have to buy a new diamond band. I def. DO NOT recommend buying something so important like an engagement ring or diamond wedding band from this horrible establishment.

Sea Wave DIamonds caught my attention, because durring my internet searches, Sea Wave continuously had the best reviews! I knew exactly what i was looking for, and Emil gave me just that.

When me and my boyfriend went to NYC Diamond District we lost count of the amount of stores there were. I was only interested in Sea Wave Diamonds so headed straight there. Based on the research that i made beforehand Sea Wave Diamonds had the best reviews online so i had no hesitation entering the store. The staff were soooo helpful. They were very patient and nothing was too much trouble. Alex was helping my boyfriend and I, and even remembered my boyfriend from a trip he had made 6 moths earlier. \r\nI got a GIA certified diamond ring. It was well worth the price.\r\nThank you!

I got my ring last week and it's too loose for me. I went back to resize it. Sea Wave Diamonds charged me $250 which the most of the store will do it for free. It's my first time buying ring I don't really know how to choose the right size. They didn't help at first and argue with me afterward. I will not recommend Sea Wave Diamond for the customer especially the first time buyer. I bought my engagement ring from ""David So Diamond"", they have much better service. ""Do not recommend"" Sea wave diamonds.
