Van-Daaz's Diamond~Explorer

   For Canadian Mined Diamonds we would urge you to go to the pro-actively ethical "Igloo Diamonds®" brand and site.


All diamonds are shipped "Next Day Air" by Fed-Ex, fully insured, accompanied by the original GIA grading report (unless you choose a diamond with another grading laboratory report), a blue-velvet styled ring box, and a 10 X magnifying loop to view your diamond up-close... Diamonds carry our special No Hassle 7-Day Money Back Guarantee

We recommend that you read also about the advantages of buying your diamond loose and NOT set.

Free Shipping & Handling with WT payment--a value of $50.00-$100.00 (depending on diamond's price)
Consider, therefore, your purchase value $50.00-$100.00 below the diamond price listed in our Diamond~Explorer's results, when comparing with the "competition" prices...
Read, also, all about our Price Matching policy.

Hot tip: To increase the flexibility of your choice and to be able to discover unexpected values--define a slightly wider range of parameters than you first intended: one more grade of color or clarity, above or below your original preference, a few points larger or smaller weight range (we recommend +/- 0.09 Crt.)... After all-- you may miss a great diamond a sheere 2 Carat-points smaller, or, one that happened to be one color grade lower yet with one clarity grade higher etc.... Enjoy your exploration!
(To an alphabetic 'key-to-symbols' for the results produced by our "Diamond Explorer")

Our Diamond Purchase Customization Form is a good idea if even our "Diamond Explorer" does not return the sought and hoped for diamond. This is true, in particular, for Very Large Diamonds (over 7 Carats). If in need--do not hesitate to try it...

Notice that our data-base is available to other dealers and the entire inventory is sold on a 'First Come-First Serve' basis. Therefore, if one of the diamonds on our lists is to your liking please let us know as soon as you can. Diamonds of good shopping value have very short 'shelf-life' span! In comparing prices you will find out that our diamond prices are most likely to offer you the best quality/price ratio on the 'Net'. As a discriminating diamond buyer you know that the easy promise to be the cheapest is really... of no value to you at all... Make a brilliant choice. Choose the best value for the price rather than the best price for no value. Shop your diamonds from Van-Daaz. Quality diamonds only are our business--we are one of the Web's first two diamond dealers in continuous service--on-line since 1995.
On rare occasions results retrieved by our "Diamond~Explorer" ™ may contain errors originating in material submitted electronically by importers and manufacturers. In particular, Van-Daaz will bear no liability to erroneously entered price information and will neither abide by nor proceed to conclude deals based on such errors. Notice, however, that data-base errors are most likely to be discovered prior to the conclusion of any purchase.

Accordingly: All prices and availabilities are subject to change without notice
