I first learned about IGS two years ago, when I was in the market for an engagement ring, through the Washington Post’s “Best Jewelers in DC” article. I was unhappy with the quality and prices of the diamonds I was seeing elsewhere. I originally dealt with Ed Sr. at IGC, who went out of his way to review the inventory of radiant cut diamonds to find me the best one at the best price.
When I finally came in to see them in person, Ed Jr. took the time to educate me on what to look for in a diamond. Also, I had a vision about what I wanted the engagement ring to look like. I sketched my vision on a piece of paper and their jewelry maker were able to craft the perfect ring.
Since purchasing the engagement ring, my wife and I also purchased our wedding bands there, as well as a pair of diamond stud earrings.
My experience with IGS has been excellent. Both Ed Sr. and Ed Jr. are enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and friendly. They are straight talkers that do everything they can to make you happy so that you become a repeat customer.
I recommend them to all of my friends and would recommend them to anyone. I would never buy jewelry anywhere else.
