Mission Statement

With old-fashioned values and modern methods, we grow our passion for learning and teaching others about diamonds. We focus on higher standards and relationship building. We demonstrate this with our customers through our commitment to their satisfaction, with our employees through our emphasis on continuing education, and with our community through our constant support of local charitable causes and community fundraising initiatives. Our recipe for success is simple and best described by our motto,

“We focus on the relationship, not the sale.”
