I work by appointment after speaking with you to determine your goals, price range, shape of stone, size/carat weight, and if you have previously been shown color and clarity samples, what it is that you prefer. Once I have direction, I obtain from my trusted diamond cutters and suppliers the stones that fit my parameters. I also show you mounting and jewelry options from which to select, and provide a beautiful finished ring or piece of jewelry that you and your loved one will treasure. A custom piece can also be designed and created.

My loyal client base appreciates honesty, integrity, personal service, and my commitment to providing excellent quality at a very fair price. An easy, uncomplicated buying experience has prompted many referrals. A large number of clients come to me from all over the United States who were referred by other clients. Often these out-of-state clients work entirely with me over the telephone and via internet. They have heard that they can trust me to look out for their best interests.

I cannot tell you how many customers have said that they get compliments daily on their jewelry from Classy Carats, and how great that makes them feel. And, in turn, that makes my day, too! I will not sell an "off-make", a stone that is too deep or too shallow, or that has unfavorable inclusions that compromise the integrity of the stone. Even if one wants to lower color or clarity in favor of size, I will only recommend a well-cut, lively stone.

A particular stone will indeed stand out to you and tug at your heart. Even those looking at diamonds for the first time can see color and cut differences quite easily once walked through the process.

Referrals from satisfied customers are the highest form of compliment! Please send your friends and family to me for any jewelry or stone needs. I will take great care of them.
