INSIDE DIAMOND INDUSTRY REPORT

Leading Diamond Industry Organization reports this morning they believe synthetics will account for over 50% of US engagement-ring purchases in 2024 but will collapse in 2025 as prices slide

This prediction that Labs will collapse in 2025 due to price slides as consumers find out their true, incredibly low value is why NYC Wholesale Diamonds has never, and will never carry Labs

Congrats Mike on your incredible beach proposal, and thank you so very much for this generous Five Star Google review:

Keith was absolutely outstanding to work with. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and flexible in helping me make sure everything was perfect. From my first visit to look at diamonds, all the way up to the proposal, Keith was very helpful and responsive the whole way through. He created my fiancé’s absolute dream ring and we both cannot thank him enough. The only jeweler I met with that actually prioritized human interaction over the sale $$$. Cannot thank him and recommend him enough. Great job Keith

Michael, thank you so very much for this kind Google Five Star Review. Wishing you and Grace every happiness life has to offer

Keith was excellent in all aspects of the purchasing process. He was very flexible with scheduling meetings and was extremely kind, thorough and helpful. We started with the selection process, during which Keith provided us with a number of options based on our preference. Once we decided on a setting and stone, Keith made the process seamless and delivered a fully customized ring. I mentioned a deadline as to when I would prefer the ring to be ready, and Keith delivered exactly on time. He also walked me through the insurance and appraisal process. Amazing experience all around and would definitely recommend NYCWD to anyone!

PIPPA MIDDLETON’S THREE CARAT $300,000 ASSCHER CUT

%Jeweler NYC %NYC Wholesale Diamonds

%Jeweler NYC %NYC Wholesale Diamonds

The younger sister of Princess Kate was proposed to by wealthy hedge fund manager James Matthews in 2016, after less than a year of dating.
To seal the deal, James – brother of Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews – popped the question with a three-carat diamond engagement ring.
Pippa’s ring has some royal ties too, it turns out, as the sparkler features an “Asscher-cut”, which was invented in 1902 by Joseph Asscher, founder of what is now known as the Royal Asscher Diamond Company.
The prestigious diamond brand has provided jewellery for Queen Juliana of the Netherlands.
The ring had a price tag to rival Kate’s, with the octagonal diamond ring reportedly costing around £250,000 – and will keep Pippa busy.
Caring for a royal ring can be tricky according to Ben Roberts, Managing Director of Clogau – the brand responsible for the Welsh gold that the royals have used to create their wedding rings since 1923 (when Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who became The Queen Mother, married the Duke of York, later King George VI).
Speaking about Kate’s 12-carat sapphire engagement ring, he told Hello! magazine: “Even without any alterations, caring for an heirloom of such value comes with its own challenges.
“Kate and her team will need to employ careful maintenance, with regular inspections and in-depth evaluations, gentle cleaning to restore sheen, and, if necessary, expert repairs to ensure its longevity.
“That way, she can continue to wear it every day and maintain a constant connection to the past while grounding her in the present as a beloved senior member of the Royal Family.”
Pippa and James married on 20 May, 2017, with a £250,000 budget for the big day.
The pair shunned a lavish ceremony in favour of a more intimate, family affair in Pippa’s home village.
She wore a spectacular dress by designer Giles Deacon, that featured cap sleeves and an elegant high neckline and is said to have cost upward of £40,000.
The couple wed at St Mark’s Church in Englefield in Berkshire and resident priest the Reverand Nick Wynee-Jones officiated.
The church dates back to the 12th century and was extensively restored by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1857.
The £6million Middleton family home in nearby Bucklebury hosted the wedding reception.
A £100,000 glass marquee was built at the family home and it had space for more than 350 guests.
The guests also enjoyed a fly-by from aircraft including a World War Two Spitfire.
Designer Giles Deacon designed the lace gown Pippa wore to marry James Matthews. He was spotted visiting Pippa and her mother Carole just before Christmas, holding a garment bag.
Meanwhile, Kate and Prince William announced their engagement in 2010, with the royal proposing with his mother’s ring in Kenya.
At the time of its creation, the ring was worth £28,000, according to Marie Claire.
Vintage ring expert Sam Mee estimates that these days its value is more like £390,000.
However, given the historical significance it now holds, some believe it is actually priceless.
For his proposal, Prince Harry used stones from Princess Diana’s collection to create a ring for Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry popped the question in 2017 with a classic gold band set with three diamonds, although Meghan later upgraded the ring to feature a diamond-studded band, valued at £150,000.
Our thanks to Becky Pemberton and The Sun for this fascinating update

Keith is one of a kind. Patient, intelligent, kind, and funny as well! He makes a stressful process feel so simple and easy. Keith took a bunch of words and pictures describing what we wanted and figured out exactly what we needed, all within budget.

Our ring came out beautifully. My fiance loved it so much, thank you so much Keith and the NYC wholesale diamond team

Josh, thank you for this wonderful Google Five Star Review. It was a true honor assisting such a loving gentleman. Wishing you and Chloe happiness and success together always!

Keith made the process of finding the perfect engagement ring for my fiancée easy and stress free. We went for a consultation with Keith while on a weekend trip to NYC and he presented us with several outstanding diamonds within my budget. Keith helped to explain all of the different items that go into valuing a diamond. He did not pressure me to make a purchase and was incredibly helpful in walking me through the process. I would very highly recommend Keith to all of my friends and family. My fiancée absolutely loves the ring!
