hearts on fire diamonds,

  • About Me

    Let me introduce myself I'm a Private Jeweler based in Chicago USA, I moved to the USA in 2000 from Melbourne Australia, when I met my now husband,we've been together over 18 yrs married with 2 sons.
     
     
     
       I have been in the Diamond Industry over 13 years. During this time I have established long lasting trusted relationships with diamond exporters and suppliers from around the world. I have a passion for helping you buy the ring of your dreams. I LOVE WHAT I DO , My mission is to help you come up with the most beautiful ring at the best possible price. I everyone says that, all I ask is "give me a chance" visit my site, browse around and see my videos and photos, compare MY prices to any store or wholesaler you may be considering. I can make ANY style you can show me. One thing I can promise,  If I don't like the diamond. I will NOT sell it to you. My suppliers know know how picky I am.
     
    All my rings are CURRENT HOT styles and ALL my diamonds are 100% Natural and Certified. *CE diamonds available by request. If you do not see specifically what you are interested in "No problem". It is impossible for me to list a photo of every style out there BUT NOT impossible to get it made for you. Most rings take us 7-10*days to make, so the process is fairly fast. Please email me with details and if possible a link to a style of setting you like. I will get back to you with a few options. My goal is to make her eyes POP when she sees the ring....not your Life savings buying one. You can read my references below. I deal mainly with Direct Wire Payments, with a Written Purchase Agreement outlining your purchase, where there are no additional fees. or you can your Credit Card for a small 3% processing fee. All sales have a written Purchase Agreement , Any way you pay there is ALWAYS 7 Days inspection FROM DELIVERY DATE TO YOU . This allows you time to see it, have it verified or appraised independently and make your decision. I have customers who purchased from me all around USA, Canada, UK , France, Poland, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, Egypt and many other places.

    DIAMOND EDUCATION AND INFORMATION

    PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING A DIAMOND ANYWHERE.
     

    DIAMOND COLOR CHART EXAMPLES ONLY

      

    Diamond color is a range within each color category it is a "OPINION " of the lab providing the report on the diamond  and an vary by mutiple grades

    As you can see when the diamond is " FACE UP " color is much harder ti see even when compared SIDE BY SIDE 

    FUN FACT : COLOR FACE UP IS NOT AS OBVIOUS AS LOOSE UP SIDE DOWN ON A WHITE TRAY UNDER SPECIAL LIGHTS

    SO YOU DON'T NEED TO SPEND THOUSANDS MORE ON A D E F  when a G H I is Just as Gorgeous saving you THOUSANDS .

    D: Absolutely colorless. The highest color grade, which is extremely rare.

    E: Colorless. An expert gemologist can detect only slight traces of color. A rare diamond.

    F: Colorless. Slight color detected by an expert gemologist, but still considered a "colorless" grade. A high-quality diamond.

    G-H: Near- colorless. Color noticeable when compared to diamonds of better grades, but these grades offer excellent value. MOST SOLD

    I-J: Near- colorless. Color slightly detectable. An excellent value.

    K-M:  SELECTED ONES OFFER THE BIGGEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK on larger diamonds especially with fluorescence which can Upgrade color visually

    N-Z: Not carried.

     

     

    CERTIFICATES or GRADING REPORTS as they are also known.

     

    1.Both GIA and EGL Certificates Lab reports are recognized here in the USA   However  ( there are also many others that exist) EGL-USA , EGL HONG KONG , IGI, HRD, & AGS  etc... Although they use the same terminology Letters D-Z  to indicate color and FL-I3 in clarity THEY ARE ALL DIFFERENT

     

    2. Diamond Certificates/ Grading Reports are from Labs that outline the details of the stone, recognized Labs which are distributed to Diamond Districts and Jewelry Stores across USA ,CANADA, AUSTRALIA and WORLD WIDE. They are offered on Online, as well as jewelry stores, eBay  and other sites even Government Auctions.

     

    I get emails all the time so they are definitely NOT ILLEGAL as some may suggest!

    3.They are ALL recognized in the industry and are more desirable than buying a diamond without any report at all. However THEY ARE NOT THE SAME......  

    This calls for common sense on the consumers behalf as well as some research. Sadly This is what a lot of people do, they buy a visually Gorgeous diamond and then go to a local Jeweler who didn't sell them the ring to "Verify what a Great deal they got"  what do you think they will tell you or try and do????? They will put doubt in your head to try and sell you their inventory.  giving you their  "OPINION" on your Deal"?  Or if you buy a diamond with a grading report other then GIA for a much lower price then a equal quality with a GIA report. The lower price you're paying reflects the looser grading already, so visiting a GIA Appraiser or Jewelry store for their "opinion" again, Consumers should not expect them to tell you that the diamond matches GIA's stricter grading criteria as it will Definitely NOT, that is a well known fact.

    WHEN YOU'VE PURCHASED A EGL CERTIFIED DIAMOND,  (DON'T EXPECT IT TO = TO GIA DIAMOND GRADING ).

    IN FACT IF YOURE BUYING A IGI, HRD, AGS, EGL-USA OR ANY OTHER GRADED DIAMOND. DON"T EXPECT IT TO MATCH OR BE THE SAME AS GIA . IT WILL NOT BE 9/10 TIMES . 

           The BASIC rule to go by is,  "IF If it was not certified by GIA, IT WILL NOT MATCH GIA."

    There is nothing wrong with buying a diamond with another certification as long as you are aware of these detail, and accept the variation, years ago people would buy none certified diamonds from a local jeweler and just take their word for it. A grading report is a guideline to verify carat weigh and measurements and estimated inclusion plot to identify the diamond IT IS NOT A GUARATEE OR WARRANTY OF ANY KIND .

    I offer a 7 day inspection period to give you the opportunity to see it for yourself and make your own informed decision if you love it or not.

    Yes its confusiong as two diamonds even with the exact details on a certificate done by the same lab, can still look different and be prices differently,  THERE ARE NO TWO DIAMONDS IN THE WOLD THAT ARE IDENTICAL visually even if they show almostthe same details on paper. That is why YOU have to see it for yourself. Both Diamond in the picture are GIA GRADED AS H COLRO AND SI1 CLARITY TRIPLE EXCELLENT . Do they look the same ?

    .  

    FUTHER EXAMPLE : If you are buying a 3.00 G Vs2  EGL Graded diamond in the range of $28-30K ( my prices are  lower by the way ) or 3.01 G si1 GIA for $36Kand you compare it you SHOULD NOT EXPECT the EGL grading to match GIA's even when it has a higher clarity on paper. The grading looser therfore appears higher when in fact it is not.

    The price will indicate the grading is off , you may ask How many grades , well impossible to tell at a glance. You can send it to GIA to find out OR JUST BUY ONE ALREADY GRADED BY GIA with a lower clarity and color to stay closer to the EGL PRICE POINT.

    Another example to help you see the difference , if 2 identical cars are being sold at thousands apart, logically there are reasons why:  higher miles, less options, more wear and tear, had a accident etc. 

    Similar with diamonds  even 2 identical diamonds can cost thousands apart  SEE the GIA EXAMPLES BELOW .

    difference in cut, dimensions, visual appearance, the location and type of inclusions or acquisition cost. 

                  

    There is no universal pricing for each carat, weight, color and clarity two diamonds almost identical ALL GIA  in size color and clarity can be 10-  28K APART !!!!!!   

    3.01 G Si1 VERY GOOD CUT $36,835

    3.12 G Si1 EXCELLENT CUT $46,072

    3.12 G Si1 EXCELLENT CUT $64,097              

             OR

         

    They are both 3.12 G SI1 GIA and there is a 18,000 PRICE DIFFERENCE.

    *****DIAMOND DIRECT BUY- ANNA IS NOT A CERTIFIED GEMOLOGIST ONLY A "BROKER" IN THE SALE TRANSACTION.

    Going back to the certificates, ALL LABS use different Grading systems and diamond grading for mainly color and clarity this can also include cut, polish and symmetry is done at every laboratory not with machines but by the human eye. THEREFORE IT IS "SUBJECTIVE". The LABS OPINION 

    This is where they WILL vary, and each Certificate even GIA will not offer any warranty as to their grading.  You can send the same diamond to GIA in LA and NY and get 2 different opinions at times !!!! ( see video below)

    It has happened MANY TIMES, You can even send the same diamond in mutiple times and get a different grading EVEN FROM THE SAME GIA LAB.

    Grading report or otherwise known as a certificateEGL-vs-GIAis a  ONLY A "guideline" of the diamonds details NOT A GUARANTEE even when you buy one with a GIA Report.  There in No LEGALAL DEFINITION OR STANDARD SET that EXISTS AS LAW.  It is a general opinion that GIA has the reputation of being the most consistent and stricter then others, there is no one rule general rule that OTHER certificates are 1-2 or 7 grades off because all diamonds ARE DIFFERENT.

    ALL CERTIFICATED INCLUDE A DISCLAIMER Including : GIA CERTIFICATE  WHICH STATES " THIS REPORT IS NOT A GUARANTEE OR VALUATION" 

    " IT is the Lab's "Opinion" which is SUBJECTIVE and Vary depending on persons, training,  eyes, and techniques and equipment used at the time of grading, lighting and many other           factors. 


     

     

       

    4. A diamond Certificate can be compared to a "Birth Certificate" of a Diamond stating Details about the Diamonds 4 C's

    5. A certificate alone will not describe how beautiful or ugly the diamond is in reality. Nor will it tell you if it sparkles ,No matter who certified it..... ONLY your eye can determine that FACT! Therefore that is why I offer the 7-Day inspection period from delivery to you, on any item SOLD

    would you commit to marry somone based on their profile picture without meeting face to face ?

     

     

    BOTH DIAMONDS GRADED  by GIA with a i1 Rating ( the same clarity )

     DO THEY LOOK THE SAME TO YOU ?) they are offered for a very close price hyndreds apart .

    Perfect example JUST HOW SUBJECTIVE GRADING CAN BE .

    Jeweler sent SAME Diamond 
    to GIA 3 Times and got 3 
    Different Grades! 
    If the same diamond can have different grades,
     then why is it so important? You should buy 
    on beauty instead.

    ARE EGL DIAMONDS ILLEGAL ?

    NO There is no LAW stat states they are illegal, EGLUSA tried to ban the use of the name EGL over 10 years ago but it never went thru

    EGL-USA is not Affiliated with EGL from Europle and since most of the EGL LABS have closed there are only a few operating one in HONG KONG and EGL PLATINUM

  • Mission Statement & IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    MISSION STATEMENT
     
    Hi I'm Anna Diamond Direct Buy LLC is a company based in Chicago Illinois, USA. In Business since 2006 in USA.  I moved to the USA since 2000 from Melbourne Australia.
    My business philosophy is simple.
    "I hope to  provide my clients with great value for money by ensuring my rings are of the highest quality and at the lowest price sold DIRECT to you"
    There are no store mark ups NO MIDDLEMAN , NO STORE OVERHEAD added to the cost, will save THOUSANDS.
     
    To achieve this goal :
     
    1. I hope to educate my clients so they make an informed selection
    2. Provide only certified diamonds that are INDEPENDENTLY Certified GIA , HRD, AGS , IGI, and EGL-USA or EGL IF REQUESTED.
    3. Keep my costs low and margins to the minimum to ensure you get the best price.
    4. At all times I will maintain integrity in doing business with you, as my reputation, and satisfied clients are the best form of promotion for my business. I love what I do .
     
    I am ALWAYS looking for deals, just like you are. I buy my diamonds and pay up front for the best options available from exporters to me, therefore my suppliers are able to give me much better prices because they don't have to wait months for their money.
    As a result, I get first pick and better quality for much less than the other stores that pick and choose and pay later on Memos. I have NO overhead ( you don't end up paying for my rent, staff, insurance, inventory and other bills in YOUR PRICE that are associated with running a store).
    I operate this site myself and work on a VERY LOW margins. This ALL adds up to a OFFERING YOU GREAT OPTIONS AND HUGE savings.
     
    I believe that buying a diamond should be an exciting experience. It can also be stressful and confusing, by allowing me to be a part of this special occasion in your life. 
    I will ensure that your experience is a memorable one. I have induced basic information on diamond 4 C;s as well as Certification grading report differences. Everything is as transparent as possible.
    Future referrals from my customers are the biggest complement I can get. I also encourage you to visit the GIA website to educate yourself about the 4 C's or google information about diamond that is easily available online.
    I am not a gemologist I serve as a direct " Broker"on your behalf. I buy already polished diamond that are accompanied with a Lab Grading report from various labs.
    All Diamond Laboratories who do diamond grading reports, use "their own "grading scales and criteria, they DO DIFFERED from each other, as there is NO ONE SET STANDARD in the industry ( GIA has the opinion of being the strictest and most reliable ) however even they do not offer any guarantee.
    Certain aspects are "subjective" opinion of the expert and will vary from one to another, especially but not limited to color and clarity even though they use the same terminology, which may be confusing.
    Laboratories who pre grade these diamonds offer no guarantee or value of the diamond. Diamond Direct Buy LLC does not agree or disagree with any reports and does not offer any grading input I  mainly rely on their information provided on the report, The price is calculated  on  the acquisition cost for each diamond 
    plus the manufacture cost for the setting to determine the price for each piece.
     
    When you buy from me, you always have 3 days inspection from when the item is delivered to you to get a second opinion or appraisal and make a final decision then.
    ***Only some custom orders on mountings are not refundable however the center DIAMOND is ALWAYS refundable if you let me know within 3 days of receiving it.
     
           VS     
     
    Looking forward to working with you. call me 312-388-2662 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
     
    Conflict Free Diamonds
     
    All diamonds purchased at Diamond Direct Buy LLC are from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and in compliance with United Nations resolutions. I guarantee that the diamonds I purchase on your behalf are conflict free, based on personal knowledge and/or written guarantees provided by my suppliers.
     
    For more information on conflict diamonds, please visit www.diamondfacts.org
     
    Waiver and Release of ALL claims
    Please read this carefully and be aware that in purchasing a diamond or a engagement ring from Anna/ Diamond Direct Buy LLC you are using a "DIAMOND BROKER"  offering you different options within your budget. It is agreed and accepted by the "BUYER" that Anna /Diamond Direct Buy LLC assume no liability or responsibility for the diamond grading you have chosen.
    I strongly encourage all my customers to educate themselves about the 4 c's as well a different Grading reports available out there AS THEY ARE NOT ALL THE SAME. Some big names are GIA,  EGL-USA, AGS, IGI and HRD
    Before any purchase is finalized. It is common knowledge that there are many different certifications available however,  they are NOT all equal. Although GIA has the "OPINION" of being the most strict and consistent, even they do not offer any guarantee or warranty on their Grading report NO DIAMOND REPORT DOES. 
    Diamond Direct Buy acknowledge that SOME EGL International LABS  have closed in Europe in 2014. However EGL Platinum and EGL Hong Kong are still open today and offered for sale to customers, via stores, ebay and online.
    Mostly with EGL-HONG KONG Certification which could be grades off to GIA COMPARISON using the same Letter Grading and Clarity Terminology. There are no 2 diamonds alike, and it can not be generally said that they are all off 1 or 2 grades always. Some diamonds could be graded many grades off on color and clarity, some less , It all depends on the EACH diamond.
    Grading is "SUBJECTIVE" and it is the opinion of the LAB  the equipment, and personal training used to determine the what cut, color clarity, polish and symmetry it receives. Two diamonds with the same color and clarity CAN still look very different. Diamond Direct Buy does not offer a gemological opinion of any kind. I do offer you a transparent transaction, great prices and inspection period so YOU can see it, have it independently verified, before you make a final decision.
    Once the inspection period ends and sale becomes FINAL . You are solely responsible in participating in the purchase You FULLY understand and accept assumption of all risk and waive and release all claims towards Anna and or Diamond Direct Buy LLC by sending payment to complete a purchase transaction. ALL SALES HAVE A 7 DAY INSPECTION PERIOD TO HAVE THE DIAMOND/RING VERIFIED BY A 3rd PARTY, APPRAISER OR JEWELER IN YOU R AREA THEN THE SALE IS FINAL.
    ALL SALES HAVE A WRITTEN PURCHASE AGREEMENT  AND EMAIL TYPED IN SIGNATURE will have the same effect as a original form signature.
