This company are the biggest scammers, amongst other names. Stupid me purchased a 3 Diamond ring with the main diamond 1 carat VS1, and received something extremely inferior and poor quality. They agreed to exchange the ring upon me paying for an independent valuation and certificate. The valuer refused to value the ring due to its poor quality and save me the embarrassment. The ring was exchanged and I received something that was even worse, plus a claw broke. I corresponded with Michael from Loose Diamond throughout the whole process.
To cut a long story short, I received the purchased price back, although due to residing in Australia, I was liable for the taxes as they would not further negotiate with anymore refund. I spoke to Ebay and they took action and then called Paypal, who could not assist due to the timeframes. I threatened to take them to task with Ebay's recommendations and contact FBI (Internet fraud). Michael and the Loose Diamond changed their tune. They also had the audacity to want to charge me a restocking fee. In the end, they folded, and I didn't have to pay that. Gosh I was peeved.
I want people out there to know, STAY A MILE AWAY from them and their affiliated companies. I will still pursue the taxes, as I am a dog without a bone. All I did wrong was purchase an Engagement Ring in good faith, thinking they were honest and trustworthy. Never again. I now deal with my local jeweller who has educated me in Quality and Service. Additionally, beware of any appraisals, as any merchant can put any price they think the ring is worth. This is not a legal document, nor will it reflect the value of the merchandise.
This site was really honest and helpful. I told them the story about when I went to the wholesale complex named Jewelers row in my town which is a bunch of shops that claim to be discount but I found that there was a bit of games they play… and found that I could save $2000 on a diamond with better color and clarity than the jeweler in the mall, but they did not have certifications….. so I was not sure. 1800 Loose Diamonds actually beat the price for the size, color, and clarity we wanted.
I am curious what it will appraise at for my insurance…. Hopefully for 40% more like we priced it at. They were really good with us and even emailed us answers to all our crazy questions since we were learning.
I will definitely ?recommend 1800 loosediamonds to all my family and friends who may be in the market for exquisite jewelry reasonably priced. Thank you, thank you.....

Great deal.. – I was recommended by a friend and went to see the selection of wedding engagement rings at 1800 loose diamonds. I ordered a custom ring with a halo setting, I know I got a great deal on my diamond also because I checked bluenile and saved $400. I will tell everyone interested in diamonds and rings for your company. thanks rafi.
Great service – I got great service from the folks at 1800 Loose Diamonds. I needed an engagement ring but on a limited budget. I found out the hard way downtown is a snake pit, everyone trying to catch you and sell you stuff. The thing about this store is the stuff sold itself, a good amount cheaper than other stores and I know I got a great wholesale price.
Atlanta jewelry mart – I was recommended to 1800 loose diamonds by a friend here in Georgia. I know they have been doing this trade show for a while now. I gotta say I was almost upset at the prices the people here in Atlanta charge for jewelery; its pathetic to say the least. I was able to get my dream diamond, a 2.17 carat asscher cut for a bargain!!! Thank you to the Lamden family for their great work. Recommending all my friends and family.
Thanks – What an easy going family they are! I was recommended to the Lamden family by my mother who has been shopping with them for many years for my engagement ring. I loved that I had so many options to choose from, I was originally thinking of going with a princess but when my fiancee saw this cushion cut I knew she just had to have it. I can say the design, service and price was impeccable.
Do it! – Great company to do business with. I was looking to buy a pair of cushion cut studs and no one had them in the size I was looking for. I contacted 1800 Loose Diamonds after finding their listing on Yelp. If your looking for something hard to find, give em a shot!
Say YES to 1800 loose diamonds – Found Elan on google and decided to give him a shot. They custom made my engagement ring and I got a pair of studs for the my gal too. She loved her ring and her earrings, needless to say I wont be able to get anything else for a while but I look forward to my next jewelry buy. My jewelers for life!
