Although Charlie deployed his skills and contacts to build a reputation as a diamond and colored stones dealer, he never intended to become a consumer resource. But the word about his quality, selection, honesty and value got out. From being an industry insider, wholesaling to the upscale stores, Charlie suddenly found customers walking in off the street to seek his expertise on purchasing gems. And he found himself selling them at prices he would normally charge the trade.

Thus was American Diamond formed. The same people you trust to bring you the finest pearls on earth can now provide you with the perfect accompaniment, diamonds, and other stones such as rubies and sapphires, enchanting examples of which are displayed on the following pages.
