Beyond a Brilliant Diamond Buying Experience!

As many other buyers have done before me, I did some reading and research before shopping for an engagement ring. Therefore I had a rough idea of the sort of diamond that I wanted when I took my first trip to the brick and mortar stores in my area. However, despite scouring countless stores, the options available made it seemed like I had to either sacrifice some of my selection criteria or pay an arm and a leg for my ideal diamond. A friend of mine recommended that I take a look at online vendors instead. That definitely opened up a new world of possibilities in terms of choice and pricing. I was still a little wary however, as most are based in the States while I was in Asia. As such, I could only rely on certificates, reports and images to make my decision (so a generous return policy in case the diamond did not actually appeal to me in real life was one of my key requirements). Going through several online vendors, Whiteflash was the first choice in my shortlist, having obtained ISO 9001 Certification and receiving high honours from BBB consistently. Corroborating this are the reviews here on iVouch as well as feedback on several diamond forums that I've visited. Although diamond search functionalities for most websites are pretty similar, Whiteflash's Eye Clean feature for SI grade diamonds stood out for me, saving me the time taken to obtain such confirmations manually (when trying to maximize a diamond's carat with a given budget, colour and clarity are the two characteristics that can be traded out). Having found a few possible diamond candidates (that matched BOTH my selection criteria AND budget), I proceeded to engage Whiteflash's live chat, and had a very fruitful initial conversation with Debi, whom I later found out was the CEO of the company (talk about customer service!). I was then directed to my diamond consultant Becca, who tirelessly and promptly answered my barrage of questions, ranging from the procedures involved in buying online all the way to the actual diamond and ring. Due to the timezone difference, we could only communicate via email (late night my time which corresponds to the start of the day in States). Throughout our exchanges, Becca was patient, helpful and empathic, and diligently helped set up my order (which included various requests). Once the order was finalized and bank wire executed, Michelle provided me with a quick confirmation, and work on setting the diamond started. Evan shared with me beautiful photographs of the finished ring while I counted down the days to the package's arrival. Shipping was handled by Evan, Vera and Mike and the package arrived in good order and great timing. There was a minor hiccup as one trivial item (the Whiteflash toolkit that comes with their top of the line A CUT ABOVE diamonds) was missing, but this is where I got to experience Whiteflash exemplary customer service; despite it being of minimal value, it was shipped immediately to me at their cost. I'd like to thank everyone at Whiteflash (and especially Becca) for making my engagement ring buying process a pleasure, and for living up to their tagline of a brilliant diamond buying experience (and then some!). Would definitely recommend Whiteflash! PS: There wasn't any need for me to exercise Whiteflash's return policy, as their A CUT ABOVE diamonds are truly amazing!

Well, I waited for the man for 22 years. The best man. The perfect man for me. And for 37 years he's spoiled me, and loved me, and provided for me, and protected me and just plain been there for me. He's turned up a zillion times and done more, given more and been more than I could ever have expected when he first wandered into a friend's room at college when he was 18 years old and was introduced to me as "the guy who lives on the next floor...." We married just before he turned 20 and just after I'd turned 24. We were both with other people when we met, but I knew within 3 days of meeting him that this was 'the guy'. This was The One. He was, and has forever been since, my beloved. So when we got to *this* place in time with rings, and we decided this would be the IT ring, the *last* ring, there was just no other name. This is my 'Beloved'." Thank you, ladies, for all your help.

We got the stone last week and love it, it was (as expected) flawless to the human eye, and as ‘sparkly’ as I had hoped. Thanks for all your help along the way.

I received the rings yesterday! They are absolutely STUNNING. The prong work on my engagement ring is perfection and so beautiful. More beautiful than I could have ever even imagined. Thank you for all your patience and creating the ring of my dreams. I know I am rather specific and quite picky! I am so happy! Please send my thanks to the goldsmith who finessed my pieces. Impeccable work.
