Category: Loose Diamonds
The following companies all offer loose diamonds for purchase through their websites. These are as close to the source as you can get, as you will see by their prices. They all also offer to set the diamond in a ring, which you may choose to have them do, or you might choose to have your local jeweler do it. If you are in the USA you may use the FindMyJewelerTM tool to locate a jeweler who passed the secret shopper tests conducted by Diamond HelpersTM.
