I just wanted to say what a great experience it was to work with David and Steve at cut rate diamonds, they answered all my questions and helped me get the best value for my money. I was a little skeptical about making such a large purchase over the internet. I shopped around learning everything I could about diamonds and Cute Rate had the best value and quality. When I finally saw the results, I was so overwhelmed I got exactly what I wanted. The ring was custom made and the diamond was even more brilliant then I could have imagined. The craftsmanship was incredible. I would and have recommended Cute Rate Diamonds to all my friends and family.
Steve, Charlotte NC.
I want to thank you for making my first Internet diamond purchase a wonderful experience. In comparison to other websites that I visited, your company offered the best price and was the most responsive to my inquiries for further information. You were patient and reassuring when we expressed our doubts about buying over the Internet. We were rewarded by a promptly delivered, beautiful diamond. Finally, I am so happy that you were able to provide a free 14k mounting for my diamond. It has allowed me to search for the "perfect" setting at leisure, since I am able to wear and enjoy my diamond in the meantime.
Jas and Raymond
We got the ring yesterday. It is beautiful, and just exactly what we wanted. We were beginning to think that getting what we really wanted was going to be beyond what we were comfortably willing to budget for our rings. Thank you for your help in making it possible.
Loren and Queeta
Thank you for your excellent service and expert advise. The engagement ring you custom made and the diamond you secured for us were all that were promised and more than was expected. Your service was excellent and I really appreciated your willingness to communicate with us.
Thank you again. When we are in need of more jewelry we will not hesitate to contact Cut Rate Diamonds.
Lake City, FL
Hey, I just received the stone a couple of hours ago. It's beautiful. In a week or so I will have it placed in a setting. I'll let you know how it looks when it is finished.
Purchased Pear Shape 1.01cts E VS2
I recently purchased a diamond from Cut Rate Diamonds. The retail stores that I checked wanted about 40% percent more, for a similar diamond, than what I paid. Most on-line sites were about 10% more. So, the prices looked great, but I was a little concerned about buying through the Internet. I had a gemologist inspect the diamond to verify that it matched the attributes of its GIA certificate and it did. I must say everything worked out great. The guys at Cut Rate Diamonds were also very courteous and helpful.
St. Petersburg, FL
Just a few lines to thank you for the excellent service and value we received buying my 2.14 carat diamond engagement ring from Cut Rate Diamonds. As you promised, we were thrilled with the beauty and quality of the ring, and floored by the money we saved when we got the ring appraised for our insurance company. We shopped locally and explored other brokers with websites, but could not match the service, selection, or savings. We will wholeheartedly recommend Cut Rate Diamonds to all our friends who are in the market for fine jewelry. Thank you so much!
Lindora and Tom Moran
I cannot thank you enough for all of your help. You said you had the perfect diamond for me and you were right. She loved it! I spent two months looking for a diamond and encountered many people in the process. I found you to be extremely knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy. I appreciated how you explained everything to me and made sure I was comfortable with the end result. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who is looking to purchase a diamond. Thank you again for your time and help
Over the last two years I had searched literally "high and low" for a top quality diamond at a price that I could afford. I found such a diamond on your website. A 1.22 carat, VVS1, E, Oval almost perfectly proportioned. You accepted my check, shipped my diamond and we completed the entire transaction in 3 days. Best of all, I believe that I saved at least $1,500 over the price of similar diamonds with lesser quality. I was treated with "real" customer service. I was called several times both during and after the sale to check upon my satisfaction, which was 110%. Since I'm somewhat of a novice concerning gemstones, I asked numerous questions, especially how to define proportion in a stone other than the normal "brilliant cut". I was given a thorough, patient lesson that allowed me to look at other sites and compare, but I always came back to cut-rate because of their price and quality. You just can't beat them! I even tried to "haggle" them down a little on the price and I was embarrassed to even try, but my price was met with a no argument compromise and I felt like I had won again! I can assure anyone who reads this, these guys are straight up!
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with the diamond we purchased from you. It is absolutely stunning! I took it to our local jeweler to be appraised and he told me that it would retail for nearly double what I paid for it. Even the wholesale price is almost $1000 more that what you charged us. Needless to say, we feel our purchase was an incredible bargain! More importantly, we appreciate the time you spent helping us to select just the right diamond. You patiently researched every stone that I was interested in and never pressured me to make a decision. It was truly a pleasure doing business with you! We would not hesitate to recommend you to our family and friends.

Solana Beach, CA
Purchased Princess .41cts F VVS2
On Friday I received the rings with the very nice GIA stone that we picked. My fiancée and I were very happy with the polish and fit of the rings as well as the beautiful stone that you helped pick out. I was able to have a buyer compare the GIA certificate with an inspection of the diamond certificate and it matched very well. It has been a very enjoyable buying experience and we both enjoy the quality and value of the diamond + rings.

Purchased a Round 1.02ct G VS2 mounted in a custom setting and custom wedding bands
I just picked up my ring and it looks georgeous.....even the jeweler said so.....
I will recommend anyone looking for diamonds to contact you!
This is Rocky D. - you helped me with the diamond for my engagement ring right before Christmas. Anyway, its been awhile since then and I just wanted to say thanks for all your help. The ring came out great (as did the proposal) and we get tons of compliments on the ring. I know that my friend Steve H. has been looking at your jewelry as well, so I'll see if there is anyone else I can refer along the way. Anyway, thanks again and I look forward to doing more business in the future.

Purchased a Princess 1.01 Ct H VS1
I was extremely please with my purchase at cutratediamonds. The service was great and I recieved exactly what I ordered. I would do business again in the future with them.
Purchased a Round .87 D SI1
We wanted to follow up to "officially" thank you for your patience, attention to detail, frequent phone calls throughout the process of our purchase, and your professional, speedy, and overall exceptional service. At one point during your vacation, David even answered an e-mail we had addressed to you, so that we didn't think we were being ignored! We purchased a spectacular matched pair of diamond studs, bezel set in platinum (.84 ct each, G-VS2, GIA certified) for our 30th wedding anniversary. They appraised "conservatively" (according to the gemologist, who said they'd easily be much more than that figure, depending on where they might be purchased) at twice what we paid. Admittedly, we were very concerned about doing the transaction via internet, but we will never hesitate to do business with you again! We have recommended you to friends and family (who envy the sparkles in my ears!). Feel free to have any doubters contact us.

Just wanted to let you know that I have received the ring and it is beautiful. Thank you so much for all of your help and I will be sure to let you know how things turn out. Tonight is the big night !
...Everything was perfect. I really appreciate all of your help. She loves the ring.
Purchased Asscher 1.50 I VS2
Got the ring today...love the stone even more...absolutely beautiful. Very nice job with the setting as well. I'm sure she's going to love it. I am going to have a 2nd appraisal done just for sanity sake and once I do propose I will probably need to come back to you to have the setting upgraded. Also, can you send me a few instructions for cleaning and care? Once again, nice job and thanks for everything.
Purchased a Princess 1.21 D VS1 GIA
I want to thank you for such wonderful service! I thought I would be nervous about making a diamond purchase online, but you made me feel very comfortable! Thank you for answering all of my questions, and following up with me after the delivery. My jeweler said that I "definitely got my money's worth". My ring was so beautiful when it arrived! My husband got down on his knee and my three children gathered around...he spoke lovingly of our first ten years together...there were tears of joy! I feel that my ring is a beautiful symbol of our beautiful union. Blessings to you and yours!
Purchased a Marquise 1.21 H SI2
It was great to meet you as well. All the ladies in my life are already drooling over the new diamond and it continues to amaze when I wake up in the morning and see that it's still on my hand! :) Thanks for everything. And of course I'll definitely continue to forward friends and family on to you.

WOW! My thanks for all your advice. You made something I thought was unattainable, attainable. This is a beautiful stone at an outstanding price.

Carol Spring, IL
Purchased an oval 1.16ct F SI2
I am VERY pleased with the diamond and your service was nothing short of excellent. It arrived at 9:00AM as planned.
I must admit to being skeptical of such an expensive online purchase. I had it measured in a colorimeter, weighed, and verified the inscription and clarity under a microscope. Everything seamed to check out. My jeweler friend was even impressed with my ability to acquire a better stone at a lower price than he could. The stone is set in a platinum cathedral setting and it looks terrific. I will find out tomorrow how she likes it.
Thank you very much. I will keep you in mind for future purchases as well as a word of mouth reference.
Little Rock , Arkansas
Purchased a Round .71 E VS2
I have enjoyed my ring for almost a year now. I was so pleased when I received it, and my pleasure with it grows with every day. I have had numerous compliments and it gives me great pleasure to recommend your web site to friends and acquaintances. The stone I purchased is a 2.55 emerald cut which exceeded my expectations. The ring was designed to my specifications, and my stone was actually much clearer and brighter than I expected. You certainly do not use high power tactics and you do not falsely state the quality of your stones. Thank you for the individual treatment I received.
Purchased an Emerald 2.55 J VS2
I just wanted to write a short note to tell you how thrilled and satisfied I am with you and your company. I must say I was EXTREMELY hesitant about buying a diamond over the internet. However, because you prices were so appealing (about 20% less than any others I looked at), I decided to do my homework on your company. I checked the BBB and jewelers associations and everything seemed great. The final thing that put my mind at ease was when I spoke to you on the phone. I had three diamonds picked out and you picked the perfect one for me and the best part is it was the least expensive of the three!!! The stone was delivered UPS overnight as promised and I must say when I opened it, I was amazed. It was truly beautiful. I proposed last night, she LOVED it, and we are getting married in Dec. I will recommend CutRate to everyone I know. Thanks so much Barry.
Purchased an Oval 1.49 D SI2 GIA
Just sending this to let you know that we got the diamond.... I dont have to let you know how well it apprased! you should have seen the light in tammy's eyes as she gazed into it!!!
Purchased a Heart .80 E VVS2 GIA
The stone was just as beautiful as described!! I love it almost as much as she did. I am so glad I found a diamond retailer with as much quality, value and customer care as you guys. I really appreciate your patience and willingness to help me with all my requests. I will definitely be looking to you guys for help with any future jewelry needs. By the way thanks for saving me over half the retail price for my ring. Looking to get the ring professionally appraised as soon as I return from vacation.
Purchased a Princess .60 E VS1 mounted in a custom setting
Buying diamonds online was something i would have never thought about before but after browsing the web, i stumbled across cutratediamonds.com. I also noticed that their pricing was better than the online competitors. I soon got in touch with Barry who assisted me with my purchase. He was kind and accommodative in my selection process. He worked with me in getting all the info i needed in making my decision, including copies of the GIA Certs on the diamonds i was interested in. I was skeptical at first but when i got my diamonds, i had them appraised and everything checked out. I ended up purchasing 2 beautiful diamonds. Thx Barry. Will definitely come back for more!!!
Purchased 1.30 BR E VS1 on Platinum Cathedral Solitaire & 1.08 BR F VS1 loose diamond
I cannot express my complete satisfaction with Cut Rate Diamonds. From start to finish, everything has exceeded my expectations. I was extremely nervous ordering an engagement ring online. I am the type of person who needs to be hands-on with everything I purchase - especially an expensive diamond. Steve at Cut Rate Diamonds helped me build an engagement ring and wedding band from scratch with all the features my wife liked in some of the designer rings we bought. The ring turned out much better than I dreamed it would, and the value was exceptional. I shopped for quite a while and I know I got the best deal possible. Fast forward 24 months later. My wife noticed that an accent diamond had fallen off her ring. I called Steve again and he replaced the stone with no hassle....for FREE. Steve said, "It's my ring and I'll stand behind it." I have referred several people to Steve and I highly recommend him to anyone shopping for fine jewelry. TOP NOTCH!
Purchased a 1.00 F VVS1 GIA in a custom setting

Palo Alto, CA
Purchased a Cushion 1.51 D Internally Flawless
You are the MAN! People have been raving about the ring and of course she said yes….! Did it a week ago on Sunday evening…went on a hike above Bear Mt Bridge…and at the final vista dropped a knee and pop the big one… We are both very happy, thank you for making the process easier and very successful. She says it is exactly what she would have picked (I know they all are supposed to say that, but really think we nailed it!) Now for the real tough chores of planning a wedding… thanks again for everything and following up!
