I really can't say enough good things about Tom and the whole Washington Diamond crew. We originally went out to Washington Diamond before we got engaged when both my fiance and I were trying to understand engagement rings and the various components of diamonds (cut, clarity, color, and the different scales). We had read some really great reviews about the time this store will spend explaining it all to potential customers, and the fantastic prices they have for the quality of what they do. It was such a great experience that when it came time to buy the engagement ring, my fiance went to Tom first (and last!). The quality is superb, and we both love that it's a small business that's been around for decades. We also love that they make everything in-house -- from the ring itself to the setting. Their work is classic and still one of a kind.
When it came time to look for our wedding bands a few months ago, there was no question in our mind - we'd come back to Tom and the Washington Diamond crew. We love our wedding bands, and cannot WAIT to wear them for the rest of our lives (starting in September!). I've gotten two cleanings of my engagement ring -- which are complimentary -- since last February, and it sparkles like new every time!
I highly, highly recommend Washington Diamond -- so much so that I've already sent other friends of mine there to buy jewelry! We'll be customers for years to come, no question.
