Diamonds Direct is the oldest jewelry establishment in the 50th & France neighborhood.
Diamonds Direct is a jewelry store established in 1981 on the principle of bringing quality diamonds to our clients and pricing them so well that they would eagerly refer their friends & family. We accomplish this by not investing in advertising or promotions which keeps our overhead low… this savings we pass on to our clients. We now offer every type of diamond & gemstone jewelry. We pride ourselves in being able to provide any design our customers want. If we can't get it, we can create it.
As a family owned and operated business, we treat our clients as part of our family. We take pride in getting to know each person that visits our engagement ring shop. We enjoy making their jewelry buying experience as personal and positive as possible. We know that happy clients bring in new potential business. Since we are referral based, these relationships are the heart of our business. As you begin your search for a jeweler, whether it be an engagement ring for your lady, a money clip for your husband or a custom diamond jewelry piece you have dreamed up, please give Diamonds Direct the opportunity to show you what we can do.
