Gemological Trading Corp: great service, quality and value 9/6/2010

I had found the Gemological Trading Corp via the website findmyjeweler. The combination of education information in that website with the great services from the Gemological Trading Corp helped my purchase a beautiful engagement ring, that met all parameters I had chosen and within the budget I had planned. The Gemological Trading Corp staff member Mary was particularly helpful and dedicated. I realized Mary and the jeweler were indeed on my side, looking for my best interest when it came to obtaining the diamond and ring set. Other plus factors: great store location and atmosphere, vast access to stone databases and willingness to search for very specific selections, consultative sales approach, without pushing undesirable options. Mary was also extremely patient answering all my questions and flexible accommodating my requests. Highly recommendable! more

Simply Brilliant GTC!!! 9/12/2007

Amazing! I looked everywhere in the local area of Tacoma/Seattle and the GTC surpassed all of my expectations. Toni was very quick with my phone calls and emails, worked with my schedule, and even after I thought I knew all I had to know about diamonds - she taught me more! Never once did I feel pressured or misled. Pros: Prompt Replies, Well Educated, Zero Pressure To Buy Cons: Parking, But Worth The Walk! more

WE LOVE ERIN! 8/7/2007

My fiance and I found Erin (Gem. Trade Corp.) through FindMyJeweler, which are the nicest people to start with! Erin was our personal consultant and we met only with her. After our initial appointment in which she tooks us through how to choose a diamond and the like, we gave her our ""demands"" for a stone and she said she would have a look through their database. Pros: Customer service, value, quality, ambience, microscopes! Cons: Parking, but it's downtown Seattle, what do you expect? more


If you consider your self an educated diamond buyer, and your time is precious, then you owe it to yourself to go to GTC. After doing my research, looking all over the U.S, hearing every sales pitch known to man, looking at diamond after diamond, each time being disappointed, companies wanting me to put money down before they would get in what I was looking for, many companies betting that I was not educated and did not know what I was looking for, hoping to make a sale... the large retail companies are a joke. After talking with Dave a few times on the phone, hearing no hype, no insults telling me I am crazy to want what I want , @ the price I want... and looking at everything within a 100 miles, then calling around to other states...I called Dave to say I would be willing to drive up from Portland, he called and told me he had found something similair to what I had asked for, he asked for no money up front, and there was no pressure. When I arrived, and looked @ the diamond, it was everything and more, the clarity was amazing, and so was the price. A crystal clear emerald is hard to find... needless to say I purchased it on the spot. It was independently appraised @ over twice the value I paid, and when people who really know diamonds see it on my fiancee`s hand, their eyes light up. What Dave tells you, is what it is, no fluff, no hype. If you are an educated person or professional, you will really appreciate Daves low key style of just deliver the goods. If you are not, then I highly recommend letting Dave show you the ropes, your wife will be greatful you went the x-tra mile. Nathan in Portland Pros: very high quality ~ value / service / parking / easy to find Cons: none more

Gemological Trading Corp. is the best kept secret in the Seattle Jewelry Business 4/3/2007

If you need to buy diamond jewelry such as an engagement ring, then you MUST go to Gemological Trading Corporation (GTC). Don't be a fool by going to a retail jewelry store. I visited several retail stores, like Zales, Ben Bridge and Ultra Diamonds and the rocks they showed me for my price range (which was not at all cheap by the way) looked like finely cut gravel. Then a friend told me about GTC and I gave them a call. I was so glad I did. The staff is exceedingly friendly, knowledgeable, professional and there was no pressure whatsoever. My only regret was not grabbing more business cards to give out to my friends. I ended up buying an absolutely astounding engagement ring for the price I was looking for. In fact, I still often find myself staring at it on my wife's hand. All of my wife's girlfriends were a little jealous when they saw the ring, which annoyed my buddies who had foolishly dropped way more money on the world's most expensive chunks of coal at the retail stores. GTC is where you need to go if you are in the market for diamond jewelry or any other precious stone. Pros: Price, Service, Staff, Selection. Cons: None. more

Best Jeweler in town! 3/1/2007

These guys are the best. I was looking for a center stone for my ring and they worked tiredlessly in finding me the perfect stone! (I mean I was picky with not a lot of cash to spend). Anyway, they found me the perfect stone within my price range and the mounting was exceptional! They hand engraved milgrain and leaves pattern on the mounting head of the ring! I just can't believe how perfect the ring looked. They ARE the very best in town! more

Phenomenal experience 1/13/2007

The expertise is unparalleled. The customer service is top notch. From the selection of my cushion cut diamonds to the execution of my custom setting, these are people who are passionate about what they do. This translates into the best quality diamonds obtainable within your financial parameters. This means breathtaking, heirloom quality jewelry. The staff is absolutely amazing - smart, friendly, accomodating, and trustworthy. How many people in the diamond and custom jewelry business can you say that about? I will be a lifelong devotee. Pros: quality of the diamonds for the price more

Great Experience 5/9/2006

I found it so easy to understand which diamond to buy! These people really know their business. The selection and quality is amazing to me. They showed me how to get a much larger pair of diamond earrings for a lesser price. Just can't say enough about this experience. Their employees make it easy, as well. And no pressure. Pros: Selection, Pricing, Understanding more
