Dear Martin,

I wanted to thank you for your efforts to make purchasing an engagement diamond as satisfying and comfortable as anyone could.

I had been shopping around for an ideally cut diamond for a while and a friend of mine came across your website and mentioned the Diamond Buyers Guide. I downloaded it and found some very useful information. Little did I know that you would track down a diamond that had better clarity and color (and larger carat size), but for a lower price. I'd searched many other internet sites (and believe me I looked around) and local jewelers. When I received my diamond from a New York dealer that Martin found, I promptly set up an appointment with the most highly regarded gemologist in my state.

The diamond was everything Martin said it would be and is borderline being one clarity grade higher. I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend that anyone let Martin take the work out of diamond buying.
