Choosing the Right Diamond

ItsAlwaysYourChoiceAtAG1For most people, buying a diamond is a new experience, but that doesn't mean it should be overwhelming. At AVANT GARDE Jewelers, we’ll educate you on all aspects of the diamond buying process and we’ll always take the time to answer any questions. Purchasing a diamond is a major investment, so let us show you all of the possibilities.


Diamond Pricing Factors

RSP160011Retailer Lock Up V2 Online 650X410 02One of the main factors that affects price is the grading laboratory. G.I.A., (Gemological Institute of America), is the laboratory that came up with the grading system we use today. EGL, IGI and other laboratories have been found not to give an accurate grade on a diamond. Hence, these diamonds cost less money than the same grade as a GIA diamond.

“All AVANT GARDE diamonds are warranted to be “conflict free”. We adhere to the Kimberly Process which tracks diamonds from mine to market as established by the United Nations.”
