Diamond Buying Guide - The 4 C's

For most people, buying a diamond is a new experience, but that doesn't mean it should be overwhelming. Understanding a diamond's quality characteristics is straightforward and simple. A. Fishman & Son's diamond education is designed to answer all your questions. It explains a diamond's characteristics, how those characteristics influence appearance, and which are more important than others and which truly affect "value," which is what you should be looking for.

Our Diamond Education center is much more extensive than what you will find elsewhere because it comes from a perspective of a company that invests its own money in its diamonds and doesn't just rely on lists of diamonds to offer to you and which it doesn't own. When you invest your own money into your inventory you learn what you should be looking for in a diamond. Today more than 65 years of experience is "priceless!"
