Distinctive Diamonds is an excellent place to buy a diamond. Service staff are friendly, always ask if you need anything, and offer drinks.\n\nSales people do not work on commission. They try to help you find something in your budget and do not pressure you to buy anything.\n\nThe diamonds are all certified either by GIA, IGL, or EGL. All diamonds come with the certificate and free appraisal. All diamonds are SI2 clarity or higher.\n\nThe salespeople allow you to see the diamonds under magnification and on white paper so that you can see inclusions and any color in the diamond.\n\nAlso, Distinctive Diamonds allows you to see Rapaport Diamond Pricing Sheet, which is rare in the jewelry sales industry as this allow you to find out how much the jeweler paid for what you are buying and how much profit they are making.\n\nI purchased a 3/4 carat round brilliant excellent cut E color SI1 clarity 14K white gold solitare engagment ring for 3100 certified by IGL. It was appraised for 4600! Wow what a deal!\n\nThe salespeople at this store try to educate you as much as they can and know alot about diamonds. My sales rep was a graduate gemologist.\n\nP.S. I think the 1st reviewer sounds like she works for shaneco. I mean seriously this store is nowhere near ghetto. If you went there you would agree :).

My boyfriend and I started looking at Shane Co. for an engagement ring, but wanted to look at other jewelers to make sure that we were getting what we wanted and for a good price. \n\nAfter leaving Shane Co, we went to Distinctive Diamonds. My first reaction is that there was a sheriff's deputy sitting at the front door and greeting you. It made me feel like I was in the ghetto somewhere. After getting over that, we ended up having trouble getting someone to actually help us. When we finally did have someone help us, I told the sales lady what I liked and she took me to something totally different and tried to talk me into something else. Needless to say, we were less than pleased.\n\nThen we went across the street to Jared. The sales lady pulled a couple of diamonds for me to see, one of which was their signature ""Leo"" diamond. My first reaction was, ""OMG, this is yellow!"" When I told her that I felt it looked a little yellow, she said that it was because of the yellow walls and that we would need to go outside to see how it sparkles. We did end up doing this, but my gut reaction was that even a CZ would look pretty and sparkle outside, what is that going to tell me? They also kept taking my boyfriend away from me and talking him into things that I probably otherwise wouldn't have let him be talked in to. They ended up, before I even knew it, telling him that the diamonds and setting that I was looking at couldn't be guarenteed to be there unless he applied for a Jared card and bought it all today with the thought that he could cancel it within 30 days if he wanted to. Even though the price was $500 over what he said his budget was, he reluctantly went through with this option because she said ""I can't do any better than that"", but had buyers remorse afterwards. He also learned after paying and taking a closer look at the receipt, Jared had some hidden fees that we were not expecting including a fee to set the diamond in the setting and a fee for the warranty.\n\nWe then went to dinner and talked about how when we left Shane Co. we felt all warm and fuzzy inside and when we left Jared, we felt like we had been duped. The next day, my boyfriend called to make an appt to go back to Shane Co and talk to Jen P. so that we could see again what they had to offer and compare it to what we had seen and been talked into at Jared.\n\nWe went to Shane Co again today and saw Jen P. for a second time. She was awesome!! She was able to answer all of our questions for us about what we were feeling uneasy about with Jared as well as educated us on the actual diamonds and settings. She also asked what my boyfriend's budget was and actually was able to keep us not only within it, but even a little under (including tax)! (He was thrilled!) There were no hidden fees on the receipt either, just the diamond and the setting like we had talked about. We walked out of there extremely happy and comfortable with the decision we had just made. We also had a better quality setting and diamond than we were looking at at Jared and it was $1,000 cheaper! \n\nWe immediately left Shane Co. and drove to Jared to sign the papers to cancel the stuff my boyfriend he kept on hold. We will be doing all of our business at Shane Co. from now on! We are very satisfied customers and would recommend them to anyone!
