Donn travels to Antwerp, Belgium where he purchases our diamond inventory. He hand selects our diamonds so he can offer you the best quality, selection and price. He has been going overseas since 1993, and was the first Jeweler ever to bring a group of customers to the Antwerp World Diamond Center, and they were the only people able to hand select the diamond of their dreams straight from the source. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!
