How can I possibly describe in words what Martin Sheffield ( did for me ??? Well I think I can be considered as a tough client, nosy, unsure of himself, overcautious... I had been searching the intetnet for a diamond (with very, very hard specifications) and had come up with three stones sold by different brokers. I was hesitating between two of them when...Martin found me ! He was very professional, not trying to stop me from buying. He started by giving some advice, sent me a copy of his guide on how to buy a diamond (everyone looking for a stone should have it), and helped me make up my mind. Then he said that he might be able to get the same stones. I had not told him the price I was offered yet, but the first offer he made on THE EXACT SAME STONES were OVER 17% LOWER !!!! Guys, discount 17% from a big amount of money, and here is your saving right there !!! I then asked him to look up some other stones for me (why not ask for better when you can have such great prices !), which he did in a very efficient and professional way. Martin is just incredible: responds almost immediately to email, answers the phone whenever you call him, reassure you throughout the process and makes your life so much easier. ANYBODY LOOKING FOR A DIAMOND SHOULD GIVE MARTIN A CALL (TOLL FREE: 1 800 282 1476 !!!!). Martin should be rated in the top internet sites to buy diamond. Not only does he help you buy a stone (from him or somebody else), but he also helps you after you have your stone ! He guides you on how to mount it, where to have it mounted, what to expect... I could go on for hours praising Martin and his incredible service, but I guess nobody would read. So feel free to give me a call or drop me an email, I would be more than happy to share my great experience with Martin. Thanks IGS, thanks Martin, Pierre ps: Martin feel free to post any or all the email exchange, including this one, we had together. 1 408 986 2993
