Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Look at magazines, browse my online portfolio and website, narrow down the types of styles you think you would like and then think of what size & shape you would like the center stone to be.
From there it makes the deciding process a lot simpler. You will still have many choices to choose from, but at least you will know where you are starting from.
Call me to make an appointment and I will gladly guide you through the rest of it.
Buying diamond jewelry doesn't need to be complicated if you have the right guide. I promise to make the process simple and easy. I enjoy explaining differences, and years of experience have taught me the ins and outs of this interesting world of diamonds. I wholeheartedly believe I will help you make the right decision.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. There are too many insider secrets... I wouldn't know where to begin! From price differences to quality issues, you really need to make sure you choose a qualified professional with years of experience to guide you through the diamond buying process. It's a complicated field and you really want to be in capable hands throughout the whole process. Call with ANY questions and I will answer and am honored to help.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Make sure to ask:
How many years experience do you have?
Ask some difficult design questions to see if they answer you properly or are evasive. A true professional will answer ANY and all of your questions with logic, detail and truth. At the very least, that's what I do!
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. THEIR BUDGET.
Everyone has good taste and likes nice things, but certainly make sure you have your budget lined up BEFORE you begin looking at items. This helps narrow down the field to what you can really use.
Also, if it's an engagement ring, try to narrow down the shape of the CENTER STONE you are seeking. Some women prefer squares, some rounds, some oval... it's sometimes best to know beforehand.
