Diamond Traces does not operate retail locations. This allows us to cut overhead costs and focus exclusively on quality and service - providing you with a high quality product at a much better value than your local jewelry store.
We understand how important it is for our customers to see and feel jewelry - especially a piece of jewelry as personal as an engagement ring. That's why we offer free shipping on all our items and 30-day money back guarantee.
However, if you currently in New York City, you are welcome to visit our office that located at the heart of the diamond district. Please contact our Customer Service center at 1-800-343-4133 to schedule an appointment.
We are a second generation company; our parent company has been manufacturing diamonds since 1980 and has built trusting relationships with mine owners, diamond dealers and jewelry designer around the world.
Diamond Traces jewelry warranty on your jewelry covers services like cleaning, polishing, prong tightening and rhodium plating -- all for just a small shipping charge. The jewelry warranty also covers the loss of small side diamonds, assuming that the loss was not caused by damage.
However, even with our jewelry warranty, it is important to have your ring insured. Insurance covers both the loss of the entire ring and the loss of the center diamond. We highly recommend Chubb's or Jewelers Mutual.
Yes. When you check out with just a setting (and not a diamond), you can select an option to have us set your diamond and prepare personal appraisal. This service costs an additional $150.

Please include with your diamond or gemstone any documentation you might have. If the diamond has been simulants or enhanced in any way should be clearly marked as such when sent to our offices.

Clarity enhanced diamonds are natural earth mined diamonds that had a clarity enhancement process that made their inclusions less visible to the unaided eye. The clarity enhancement process also gives more fire and brilliance to the diamond, and by that the diamond look even much better than non enhanced diamond.
Do not be confused Clarity Enhanced Diamonds are 100% natural earth mined diamonds. Some people had mistaken them with Enhanced Diamonds (Synthetic stones that was grown in a lab like Simulants Diamonds).
Certification All of our clarity enhanced diamonds are certified by the world’s leading gem grading labs including AGI , UGL, or EGL. For added piece-of-mind, in addition of being graded by a third party lab, our clarity enhanced diamonds will accompanied by our Certificate of Authenticity that carry our GIA Graduated Gemologist grading report.

For added peace of mind we provide a Lifetime Treatment Guarantee on our clarity enhancement process. If the enhancement of your diamond fades out, Diamond Traces will re-enhance your diamond at no charge and with no questions asked.
Yes, to some level. Since 18kt white gold is actually 75% pure yellow gold, the jewelry must be rhodium plated. Rhodium plating is standard for all white gold jewelry and gives the item a pure white brilliance and luster. In time, however, the plating tends to wear thin, showing the natural color of the white gold beneath. Vigorous cleaning of the ring (such as with a toothbrush) can accelerate the process. Diamond Traces offers free rhodium plating on all of our white gold jewelry.
Diamond Traces offers certified diamonds and fine jewelry at prices significantly below traditional retail with the highest quality standards in the industry. We are getting our diamond first hand from Russia, Belgium and Israel. There are no middle men, no retail stores overhead and no salesmen commission fees.
We ship every loose diamond and diamond engagement ring with an independent lab report. This report can be examined by a qualified gemologist and compared against the unique characteristics of your diamond.
Conflict-free diamonds are diamonds that were NOT obtained due to human rights abuses, child labor, violence, or environmental degradation.
At Diamond Traces, we make sure every diamond is subject to strict monitoring from the mine all the way to your ring to ensure it comes from areas free of conflict. We have a zero-tolerance policy against conflict diamonds. We manufacture most of our own diamonds, and therefore have first-hand knowledge of their conflict-free origins. We only purchase diamonds from professional members of the diamond trade.
"Eye-Clean" is a term used to describe a diamond that is clean to an unaided eye in a face-up position from a distance of 10 inches. Diamonds of VS2 or higher in quality will always be eye-clean.
