Wholesale Diamonds

What are wholesale diamonds? If you have been looking to purchase your diamonds on the internet in hopes of producing something unique through the use of custom settings and loose diamonds, you may have come across this term and wondered exactly what it means. We are going to break down what a wholesale diamond is and help you understand exactly what it is that you are paying for when you purchase your loose diamonds through a wholesale fine gemstone retailer.

Wholesale, in its most broad definition, is about the purchase of large quantities of an item that is then charged free of tax. Purchasing an individual loose diamond, even from a wholesale retailer, is not a wholesale purchase. Therefore, it would not be tax free. This is the simplest and easiest way of describing and understanding what happens when you are buying from a wholesale retailer.

There is something to be said about buying in bulk, though. If you are looking to buy and resell gemstones, or if you are working on a special diamond encrusted project piece, this might be exactly what you need in order to get the quantity required for your work. In fact, the majority of individuals who buy diamonds wholesale are looking to resell their pieces later on in order to make a profit, which is only possible when buying in bulk and getting those savings.

If you are looking to customize a single engagement ring, though, this is not the best route. Wholesale is not synonymous with tax free, and if you confuse the terms you will end up with a lot of money spent on a lot of extra fine gemstones. Since sales are often final or as is, especially when it comes to things purchased through the web, you need to be careful and absolutely certain by the time you hit that ‘buy’ button!

If you are looking at wholesale diamonds but what you really want is something more affordable, you are not looking for wholesale diamonds. This is specific to bulk purchases. Talk to your fine jewelry provider or gemstone retailer about exactly what it is you are looking for and define your budget strictly. This will lead you to finding the best price for the quality and size that you are looking for, especially if you are considering any cutting, shaving or modification of the diamond itself.

Engagement Rings: Common Myths and Beliefs

Shopping for engagement rings is one of those things that breeds mixed emotions for each individual. Typically, men do the shopping and present the women with a diamond ring, but this world is evolving and it is not uncommon to see women doing the proposing. With gay marriage becoming legally recognized in many states across the United States, you may even see women buying these diamond engagement rings for other women, or men for men. We should not limit ourselves to what society tells us to do.

Regardless of your gender or sexual preference, you will probably become familiar with diamond jewelry at some point in your life. Diamonds are always a sign of love and commitment. Even if you receive a piece of diamond jewelry from your parents, it is always given and received with love. Engagement rings are a bit different, though. These rings are only given to people with the intention of getting married one day. This is the most sacred piece of jewelry one could ever give because it comes with a really big question. This should not be taken lightly and certainly should not be given for any reason other than you not being able to visualize your life without this other person.

Engagement rings come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There is no such thing as a bad one since it solely depends on your personal preference when it comes to the way the ring looks. Some people are under the impression that all of these rings are super expensive, but that is certainly not the case. No matter your budget, you can always find a gorgeous ring for that special someone in your life whom you would love to marry! Love has no limits, and whether you have $100 or $10,000, you can always find something to display your love and commitment to this person. Using the excuse of not having enough money to get engaged or married is certainly a front for a far more serious issue. If someone truly loves you, there is no way in the world anything will stop them from letting you know that. There is always later in life, too. If you do not have the money to buy the engagement ring you want at this moment, you can always buy it later. Since you are getting married, you have all the time in the world.

Caitlin and Troy were so delighted with their beautiful ring they couldn’t wait and secured their promise to each other before leaving the store.

They were so cute, not something we see every day in our store, but we always love being part of our guests memories.
