At Mint Diamonds, we understand that purchasing a diamond engagement ring can be a daunting task, especially without the knowledge and experience required to make an educated decision. That is why it is so important to work with a company that you can trust to have your best interest as their top priority, and won’t cut corners just to add a few dollars to the bottom line.

When you work with us, we are pleased to offer as much or as little guidance as you would like. We pride ourselves in selecting not only the most beautiful diamonds, but also those that will offer you the most value for the life of your purchase. Our goal is to establish life-long relationships with all of our clients, built on a strong foundation of trust from the very beginning.

Diamond selection process

Although every diamond is truly unique and no two diamonds share the same exact characteristics, there are common elements that we look for in all of the diamonds we select for our customers. The diamond selection process begins by narrowing down the hundreds of thousands of diamonds available to a handful that meet our strict specifications “on paper.” This includes the desired ranges within the 4 C’s, as well as many additional and equally important characteristics, such as depth and table percentages, the presence of fluorescence, length and width ratios, facet angles, and many more… But this is just the beginning.

Once we have narrowed down the selection to a handful of diamonds that meet our initial requirements, we will analyze them in person and sort out any that do not have outstanding optical qualities. This is a crucial step in the process, as it is very common for 2 diamonds that are identical on paper to look very different in person. We remove all risk and question by having a diamond expert carefully inspect each stone and choose the one that presents the most brilliant and attractive characteristics.

Seeing your diamond

After the perfect diamond has been selected for you, we will send you high resolution images and detailed specifications for your approval. Your digital “diamond package” will also include notes from our expert, outlining the reasons that we have selected this diamond and any characteristics that make it stand out above others.

GIA Certificates

All of our diamonds come complete with a GIA certificate, representing the highest standard in diamond grading available, world-wide. We have chosen to omit all diamonds with grading certificates other than those from the Gemological Institute of America. GIA’s reputation and accuracy are unchallenged in the global diamond industry. You can learn more GIA Certificates here.
