“Diamond District, NYC.” That term is synonymous with masterful creations and big discount prices. Together that seems like an oxymoron, but somehow it works. This term also tends to bring out an emotional reaction in people who are “in the know.” Sometimes it is one of excitement, sometimes it is curiosity, but most of the time it is the thought of what those master diamond dealers could create just for you!
These emotions are not unfounded. 47th Street’s Jewelers Row has delivered jewelry to the rich and famous more times than can be listed in a single article (believe me, we’ve tried :)). What’s very clear is that the NYC Diamond District’s best stores do far more than deliver a great price, they deliver an amazing product. And what product is the crème de la crème of the offerings on Jewelers Row? Engagement rings of course…
If you are looking for the epicenter of engagement ring creation, look no further than the jewelers in the diamond district. While the street may be subdued to the casual observer, its diamond flow is not. In fact, over 24 billion dollars-worth of diamonds move through this NYC street every year. About the same revenue number as the McDonalds Corporation.
Overwhelmingly, the first purchase for which customers go to Jewelers’ Row is an engagement ring. They often come back again and again for other pieces of course, but A#1 is the diamond engagement ring. Tens of thousands of engagement rings are made from 47th Street diamonds every year.
Last week we asked the New York Diamond District’s top jewelers to send us details about their best, and they delivered…
