The Best Of 47th Street Is In Our Stores. As we are committed to providing excellent value, we’ve developed a long and trusted relationship with Louis Newman, one of the Diamond District’s finest dealers. A third generation family business like our own, Louis Newman shares our values regarding quality and has an impeccable reputation in their field. Louis Newman is one of the few diamond companies that still manufactures “directly from rough” in New York. This enables them to cut perfect stones and, as their diamonds come directly from the source, to offer outstanding value. The volume we jointly generate also adds to the “buying power” that keeps our pricing extremely competitive.

Customers enjoy working with our Diamond Specialists in private jewelry salons in Mitchells. and Richards.
