    If my experience with The Diamond store is anything to go by, they deserve to win. The service & quality of goods was amazing.

    GOOD LUCK !!!

  3. A fantastically pleasurable customer service experience. From the moment I entered the Diamond Store website I have been extremely impressed with this company. I always approach internet shopping with some degree of trepidation, particularly when spending substantial amounts. I found the website very detailed and easy to navigate with all information easily accessible and at my fingertips. I part financed the ring with the 0% Apr option which really flexible with a quick and easy application process. I was unsure about the ring size and was offered professional competent advice by customer services from the outset. I was told 7-10 days for delivery but, as I was in a rush, it was bought forward to 48hrs (and delivered on a Saturday so I could be at home for delivery!). Each time I spoke with customer services they confirmed the detail of our conversations in emails. The tracking service for delivery was useful too and accessible through a quick link emailed to me.

    I unfortunately, in typical male tradition, initially chose the wrong size. The returns procedure was very easy to negotiate with all packaging, address labels included. Again communication throughout was perfect and I felt totally at ease. The turn-around time for the ring was only 72hours.

    As for the quality of the ring itself, well my fiancee’ hugely smiling face was testament to that! The insurance valuation certificate reflects the RRP so that you can see in black and white the savings made by using the diamond store. The ‘conflict-free’ diamond certificate also is a moral imperative.

    I would never usually write a review as I believe good customer service should be the norm. However in this economic climate where corners are being cut, hours are wasted trying to communicate ineffectively with people in foreign countries, my experience with the diamond store has been so refreshing.

    I really would recommend this company to others. Value for money, fantastic products and superb customer service will make it worthwhile.

    Many thanks to all the team. 10/10. Perfect.
