“I cannot begin to thank you both so much for creating such a beautiful ring for my husband to give me!

I have to give Kia special thanks for so patiently listening and working to create such wonderful design that not only highlights my grandma’s ruby but really matches the style I love. Kia, you nailed it!

Thank you also to everyone at Kantor Diamond. Everyone is beyond helpful and friendly…the only place to go if you want a quality experience!”

“My husband designed my wedding ring; it couldn’t have turned out better! It was perfect, beautiful, we couldn’t have wanted more. The staff was always there to help with any questions as this was being made, wanting to make sure it was to be made how we wanted. We couldn’t have asked for more; the ring, the service – thehe staff was absolutely wonderful – the price and the best quality ever! Thank you! Thank you!”

“I would never buy my diamonds ANYWHERE else. Michelle goes way above what she has to do make sure the customers are satisfied. Have sent multiple people for their jewelry needs and they have all had the same experience that I have had. Best prices in town and great service. Can’t be beat.”

My girlfriend and I had been dating for quite some time and I knew it was time to start ring shopping. I had never bought a diamond before so like any normal millennial would, I turned to Google for guidance. In a matter of minutes I was a diamond expert…or so I thought. I quickly began looking for the biggest (but most cost effective) diamonds I could find. Ebay had me thinking I was going to purchase the Crown Jewels at a steal of a price.

After reading countless nightmare reviews of why you should really talk to a professional before making any diamond purchases online, I knew that now was not the time to be stubborn. I knew many friends and family who have spoken very highly of the Kantor’s in the past, and the work that they do. I felt it would be in my best interest to contact them and at least ask some questions. It turned out to literally be one of the best experiences of my life.

My initial conversation with David was awesome. We introduced ourselves and before I knew it, it felt like we had been friends forever. I told him straight up that I really didn’t know anything about diamonds and that I would need his guidance all the way. He said not to worry and by the end of our conversation I felt 100% trust in David.

Being an artist by trade I had somewhat of an idea of what I was looking for. I began sending him pictures of what I liked and did my best to explain what I had in mind. After getting a strong idea of what I was looking for and keeping my budget in mind, David began the search for my perfect diamond. After only a few business days David contacted me and said he found a few diamonds that he wanted me to see. He sent the diamonds to their Tacoma store location where he arranged for me to deal directly with his sister Michelle.

I met Michelle who happens to be an absolute sweetheart and such a pleasure to work with. I could have talked to her for hours but we decided it would be best to bring out the diamonds that David had found and have a look. She began pulling the diamonds out one by one and explaining to me exactly what to look for and where to look for it. Helpful would be an understatement. She is so knowledgeable in her field I felt very comfortable knowing that she would point out both the great and less than great of each diamond. She didn’t sway me in any way, she didn’t try and sell me on a particular diamond either. She wanted me to find the diamond that I liked, that was what was important to her.

Every diamond was beautiful but one in particular stood out to me. It was literally exactly like the diamond I had pictured in my head for the ring that I had told David about. The shape, size, color, and clarity were all spot on. This was the diamond. What a relief to know that I had found the diamond. Next came the fun of deciding on a band for the diamond. Michelle took me around the showroom and we began to get a gauge on what I liked and didn’t like. After a few laps around the glass cases we had a couple bands that caught my attention. We went back into her office and I began to explain what I liked about each band we brought back. Michelle quickly began moving through a library of bands online showing me more options than I could count. After some time browsing we had narrowed it down to a couple different options, an idea I had or a band we found in their showroom. We decided it would be best if I slept on it. Though it would take longer to custom make the band I originally imagined in my head, I had to go with my gut and go that route.

Next came the process of designing the band. I sent Michelle some mock-ups I had done on my computer of the entire ring I was imagining and she had their designers to put together a CAD spec of the ring and bands. Within a few days Michelle contacted me with some CAD renderings of the ring. It was nearly perfect. I requested only a few minor tweaks. After I approved the CAD specs the ring went into production.

Within 2 weeks Michelle sent me a picture of the ring to let me know it had arrived. The timing couldn’t have been better because it was literally the day before our anniversary. I went in to meet with Michelle and pick up the ring and like a rock star she is, she helped me plan my engagement. Sure enough the next day I was riding on horseback to a picnic along the river where I asked my beautiful girlfriend to marry me. I’m not even really sure she said YES right away because she was speechless staring at the ring!

Nevertheless I got the girl of my dreams and she got the ring of hers. David and Michelle may have just been doing their job but I can honestly say they are good friends of mine now. They went above and beyond to make both my fiancé and I so incredibly happy and I couldn’t image what I would have done without them. My biggest thanks and appreciation to them and the work that they do! Love and happiness, cheers!

To us, this couple ARE now, good friends, and we loved helping them. Once again, congrats to you both!

“I recently just purchased an engagement ring from Kantor Diamond. I had the ring customized since I had an idea of what my girl friend wanted but couldn’t find that style in any stores. Going to Kantor Diamond was the best decision I have made. The staff helped me every step of the way. We started with a custom diamond which Kantor ended up matching the price of a similar diamond I found online for a low price. Then I had them sketch up ACAD drawing for the custom ring. The ACAD drawing looked awesome. There was even one slight change that I didn’t catch and the staff caught which made the ring look so much better. She suggested modifying the Baguette style diamonds so they are raised and the difference was night and day. When it came to pricing there was no hassle. You tell them your price range and they will get it done. I even got a cheaper deal since there was an error with the initial estimation and instead of making me pay the additional money they honored the initial price. I got the ring yesterday and it is amazing. A perfect ring for my soon to be perfect fiancé. I will make sure I go to Kantor Diamond for all my jewelry needs and I recommend you to do so as well!”

“We had my fiancé’s ring customized by Michelle Kantor. Michelle was great, she kept us in the loop step by step, was very professional and thoughtful as we made our selection. As I was at my bridal shower, I brought Kantor Diamond up to a friend, it then became a topic of how many of my friends have used them for years and have always had a great experience. Thank you Michelle!!!!!”

I enthusiastically recommend Kantor Diamond Company to any person looking for quality, excellent pricing, and a truly pleasurable buying experience. By all means, go to one (or more) of the jewelry chains first; it will give you perspective. I was referred to Kantor by a friend who had purchased her wedding ring and other jewelry there. I visited Kantor on three occasions suspecting that I would get engaged over the holiday and found the staff to be skilled and knowledgeable, down to earth, and genuinely friendly. There is no pressure, no attitude. They take pleasure in educating their customers on diamonds and they have an excellent selection on hand (essentially a “living catalog”). The ring we ordered is absolutely stunning, classic and elegant, and came in well ahead of schedule. The staff was genuinely excited to present us with the ring when we picked it up, which made for a very, very special experience. (To clarify, we are not kids, we are both established professionals preparing for our second marriages). I have visited since and am treated as though I were family. From a practical perspective, Kantor offers broker’s prices on their diamonds and has excellent quality for a markedly lower price than the chain stores. I have referred many friends since my first visit. I truly hope that anyone considering the commitment and the investment of an excellent diamond visits Kantor Diamond Company.

“I thought I probably should shop around but soon came to the conclusion what would be the point. I was already receiving the best service I possibly could get and I wanted to do business with someone I was comfortable with and trusted. It was a very busy time of year, the Christmas rush, and Michelle and Heather always had a smile and a friendly comment. The bottom line is I will be back and I have already told friends and family. I believe the real “Diamonds” you have there are the people who work there.”

“Michelle, Wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the great service the other week. You helped me select a diamond tennis bracelet for my expecting wife. She has since had our daughter and loves the bracelet. I look forward to doing business with you again in the future. Thanks”

“I live on the east coast and called the 888-CARATS1 number and reached the Tacoma store and spoke to Heather Rayburn about diamond earrings and all I can say is she was very helpful and awesome. I will buy all my jewelry from Kantor provided everything goes well with this purchase because of the experience with Heather.”

“Bridget had the notes for everything my fiance had seen in the store. Our diamond and setting were so perfect I decided I wanted the ring now before it was gone. I wanted to propose that night and Bridget made it happen. Thank you so much for your quality service and employees.

“My wife and I have visited this store several times and all the staff are very nice to work with and always take the time to answer all of our questions. We love the jewelry and the prices are awesome.”

“We contacted Heather via phone regarding a possible price match with some internet sites. She was the third person we had attempted to contact and was by far the most knowledgeable and professional. She told us about some diamonds in her inventory that may match our specifications and set up a time to meet. From the moment we entered the showroom, we knew that if we were to purchase anywhere other than the internet, Kantor would be the place. Heather made us feel very comfortable and valued as customers. Heather explained the fine details of diamond buying in a way which we could understand. We left knowing that we purchased a beautiful diamond at an exceptional value. We are both in the sales industry and were very impressed with Kantor. We will recommend them in the future.”

“I came in before Christmas with the idea to get a bigger diamond for my wife’s wedding ring. After seeing an ad in the Tacoma news Tribune sports section. I went down to the show room expecting not to have enough money for what I wanted and walking away disappointed. To my surprise I was treated great, I told Michelle how much I could spend and she found a diamond bigger and of better quality then I could have ever thought I could get. And since this was a surprise for my wife for Christmas, Michelle was very discrete about calling and letting me know it was ready. Christmas came and my wife was so surprised and thrilled She could not believe I could pull this off. Thank you Michelle you made me look good (which is usually hard to do). I will defiantly be back again.”

“Good Morning David, I just wanted to send you a special thank you for all of your help and time in picking out the Adura diamond and helping design the ring that we made for Shasta and I. It was such a pleasure to work with you guys and I will definitely be back…as I already have for a few items to tie up the whole wedding extravaganza:-). It is neat to have a story to tell as a third generation customer, who all 3 generations have gone with Kantors for such a special symbol. I have included 2 photos for you of the rings and Shasta and I. She loved the ring and the band! Thank you again and I am sure we will talk again in the future :-)”

“When I first came in I was greeted by Lynette and another associate whose name I don’t recall right now; both were very courteous and extremely helpful. Though I was the only customer in the showroom at the time, I don’t think it would have mattered. I came in with my wife’s favorite CZ ring with plans to use that as the pattern to “upgrade” her current wedding set. Lynette showed me several options that came extremely close to what I had in mind. I brought my wife in the next day (her birthday) as a surprise and Lynette had the ring we talked about (not in stock) ready to be brought up on her monitor. My wife was so surprised! To be certain we had the right one, Lynette and I guided my wife through the others we’d looked at but the first one was it! Lynette knocked it clear out of the ballpark!! That night my wife just kept saying how overwhelmed and happy she was; I don’t think I’ve seen her quite like that since the day we were married over 29 years ago. (Maybe ! when our daughter was born too.) Lynette was very discrete and kept pricing information a secret from my wife and had notes all ready when I came in the next day to put a down payment and sign the credit papers. Chelsea helped me that day with the paperwork and getting the center diamond shipped from Tacoma until Lynette arrived back from lunch. Could not have had a better experience!!! All three gals who worked with me/us were so helpful and I cannot express enough appreciation!! It made what I had felt might be a difficult decision, so easy! God’s richest blessings on you all!!”
