We know what you're thinking, "I can buy diamonds a LOT cheaper at the local mall store. They're always having 20-40% off sales."

You're probably right. You can buy cheaper diamonds, but what is it that most of those diamonds don't have — and that that these do? AGS or GIA certificates.

What's the lack of certificate mean to you? You'll have no idea what you're buying. Kind of like buying a car because you like the color and never bothering to check to see if it even has an engine — much less a performance engine.

If quality is a factor in your purchase, you need to know exactly what you're buying.
