One can safely say that nearly all diamonds bought by the consumer, whether mounted in a ring or purchased loose, have come from a jeweller, whether found on the high street or online and in more rarer cases, directly from a diamond cutter supplying at wholesale prices.
There is, however, another way to purchase your diamond…. with the help of a highly specialised diamond broker of course.
When you think of it it has now become normal if not economically profitable to visit websites which offer a ‘finding’ service for the cheapest car insurance or energy provider as examples, these are simply brokers who earn a commission from the competing firms which, in order to gain your custom will compete aggressively against one another.
Well this is also possible within the world of diamonds but the broker will not only get you the best price, he will also, as an expert diamond professional, offer you, excellent advise, guidance and will help you understand precisely what is being offered by educating you in what would seem to be a very difficult to understand technical maze.
Diamond brokers are very rare people and usually work within the diamond industry located either in Antwerp, Belgium, New York or in Israel. They help professionals find what is generally illusive or rare and provide a link between diamond cutters and diamond traders and obtain diamonds at the best current prices for their customers.
The diamond broker will, therefore locate, negotiate and purchase a diamond on your behalf, he will take care of all the administrative issues and will be able to dispatch and insure your diamond as well. If required some brokers will also provide a service that will enable you to have your diamond mounted in a ring of your choice, either provided by yourself or made to your own design or specification.
By purchasing your diamond through a good experienced broker, you can be assured that the diamond has been double checked in order to make sure that it is in fact the diamond as described on its certificate. This double guarantee to authenticity is very important as the specialised diamond broker is far more knowledgeable than the vast majority of jewellers and you will benefit from his expertise as well as the other services provided.
