Shopping at Gloria's was an awesome experience. I walked into the store with an open mind and Sandy (the owner) was more than helpful. She did an excellent job having me purchase the diamond with ""MY"" eye. I told her the size stone I wanted and she placed a couple on the table that were in my range. I looked at them and picked out the one that caught my eye. It wasn’t until I picked out the diamond that she took out the diamond price book Rapaport and calculated the price right in front of me. Her prices were very nice compared some other jewelers I had looked. \r \r NOTE: Not knowing the price ahead of time may scare some of you. However, Sandy never once pressured me and I didn’t feel bad at all telling her it was out of my price range. She would simple say, “That is ok” and pull a few more stones. \r \r Upon picking the stone I asked if I could see a few others in similar sizes (I wanted to see if I could tell the difference between stones that were very close in size. Little note: I could see the difference when laying on table right next to each other. However, I could tell when they were in a setting.) Sandy was more than happy to show me different stones. I’m glad I asked to see different sizes as this is when Sandy pulled out a stone that I just had to have. This diamond was beautiful and fit what I was looking for perfectly. I had Sandy run the price and I was once again shocked at how great of price she was quoting me. (I should remind you that I didn’t know what the cert was on this stone, I just saw it and it was beautiful and I wanted it)\r \r I really liked Sandy's approach. She told me to look at the diamond with my eye and then select one. Upon selecting a stone she would then calculate the price. If I felt the price was more than I was willing to pay she would say, ""That is fine, we can look at some others."" I loved this, there was no pressure put on me. I felt Sandy’s approach to selling me a diamond was outstanding. I found that so often when I was in other stores they were more interested in selling me a certificate than a diamond. As far as I'm concerned my fiancé' will not be wearing the certificate on her finger, just a beautiful, wonderfully priced diamond, I purchased at Gloria’s. \r \r My personal advice after doing a fair amount of research and some shopping: Don’t be stuck on one particular size, say 1.00 carat. In the times I spent looking there was noticeable difference, when in a setting, between a .90 -1.00 carat. Next, keep your options open on the color you don’t need, unless it’s for personal satisfaction a D-color, G, H, & I are very good choices. When it comes to cut (45% of the value, as I was told be 3 different places) look for a very good to ideal cut stone. In regards to clarity, SI1 and above should be eye clean. You be the judge look at the diamond. Finally, I would recommend using the jeweler. They have looked at more diamonds then most of us will ever look at. I took the following approach. I wanted a diamond that wasn’t yellow, one that I could see inclusions in, and one that catches my eye. I’m sure glad I found Sandy at Gloria’s. It was an amazing experience. I will be back \r Thank You Very Much Sandy\r \r P.S There will be more to come once I receive my ring back. I had a custom made ring and I will let you guys know how it turns out. \r Pros: No Pressure, Excellent Service, No Games, & Comforting more
