I also found OldEuropeanDiamonds.com by doing an online search. I had been shopping my Mother-In-Law, diamond locally and was told all sorts of stories. Their senior gemologist was extremely informative in his appraisal and description of this stone. He informed me that it was not really an Old European cut as I had been told, but a transitional cut. They kept in constant communication throughout the transaction. I would have not hesitation sending them another diamond for him to appraise and sell for me.
I luckily stumbled across OldEuropeanDiamonds.com web site while I was nervously searching for someone knowledgeable and experienced who could help me sell my old European cut diamond ring. After chatting with their senior gemologist at length, I followed up with the references he gave me. They were glowing testimonials. I felt comfortable enough to move forward. He was the perfect man for the job, He is a shining diamond in a rough old world.
Old European Diamonds was a great find!! They can assist you with exactly what you want and all your gemological needs. You must send pictures and be ready with details. Their senior gemologist will assist you. He is knowledgeable about all aspects of the gems in question. Communication is very good. He is tremendous with his ability and speed to find exactly what you need. I felt comfortable with him and trust him, he is honest and does not sugar coat anything so that you will buy. I live in Virginia and have never met him but feel he is like a friend.
After speaking with jewelers and realizing old cut diamonds are a specialty item, I found OldEuropeanDiamonds.com They assisted me in getting a very fair return on my Aunt’s Old European Diamond pendant which I had inherited.
We found this business through an online search. My husband and I drove to Austin from Dallas to meet with E.R.M., the Graduate Gemologist from OldEuropeanDiamonds. We were impressed with both his professionalism and knowledge of gems and were quite comfortable leaving our old cut diamond with them on consignment. In a very short period of time, they had found a buyer for our diamond at a very good price. We couldn‘t have been more pleased with his service and the results. In the future we will be going back to OldEuropeanDiamonds for investment gems. They deal very fairly with their clients.
After seeing a number of jewelers and searching the central Texas area for the best price we could receive on my near 3 carat Old European diamond, we agreed to have OldEuropeanDiamonds broker the diamond for us for a higher cash amount. They were professional, informative and got us a significantly higher price than anyone else we approached.
