"Seller of wholesale diamonds", "direct importer", and "straight from the source";
these are some of the common catch-phrases used by diamond retailers to refer to methods of selling diamonds at prices below retail.
What does all this mean? In the end, what matters is the price you pay for the diamond you want and the value you get in return.
Washington Diamond started out as a wholesale diamond dealer
We imported diamonds to the United States from across the world and then sold loose diamonds to retail stores across the country.
The price those retailers paid was the "wholesale price." The price the end user or customer paid to the retailer was the "retail price."
Eventually, we decided we could sell directly to the public for better values and opened our storefront in Falls Church, VA.
With the contacts we had, we were able to sell our diamonds directly to the public at or below the average wholesale price for a particular diamond. This was and continues to be a great benefit to ours customers who saved hundreds or even thousands of dollars versus retail prices. Use our diamond price calculator to find out the average wholesale prices of diamonds you are interested in.
The average wholesale price is used as a benchmark price in the diamond industry.
If you can buy a GIA certified diamond or AGS certified diamond of high quality at or below the average wholesale price, then you are doing really well for yourself.
