My Dream Diamond by the Diamond Registry

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

I remember the first time I saw an emerald cut diamond engagement ring, which was given to my best friend's sister on her engagement. The sharp corners and symmetrical design of the ring were so elegant and unique compared to other rings I had seen. I have always liked sharp corners and very symmetrical objects in my environment. So when I met my husband and discussed marriage and engagement ring options, the ring that came to mind was one I'd seen given to my best friend's sister on her engagement. My husband and I were thinking alike, as usual. (After all, we've been married for 32 years.) We lived in New York City at the time, so where else to buy my engagement ring than at the Diamond District. We found one that has been on my finger since 1990.

Forward to 2022, while jewelry browsing during vacation, I saw a ring. It became my second dream ring and yes, you guessed it - it is emerald shaped but this one is a radiant cut, which I did not know existed. It gives me the best of both worlds with the shape I love and an amazing amount of brilliance because of its 70 facet count, compared to 57 for an emerald. There were also side trapezoid diamonds.

I FELL IN LOVE! Then the search began.

How can I get as close as possible to this ring I saw at this fancy store without breaking the bank? I asked my brother, who has been in the jewelry trade for years, for help. During my free time, I spent time researching radiant diamonds. My search led me to 3 reputable diamond online stores which surprised me... I had no idea that was a thing.

In the meantime, my brother was not having any luck with the diamond cut I wanted. His diamond wholesalers told him it was very difficult to obtain that diamond cut with the size and carat specifications I wanted. One day, I would give up on the idea of buying a ring from that particular store, and then another day, I would rationalize buying the one I saw in person.

I wished I still lived in NYC and could go to the diamond district, so I looked online for NEW York diamond district wholesale. I found Diamond Registry and entered my information on their website. Nissan Perla called the next day, and he was very friendly and funny. I will never forget when he said my name is Nissan LIKE THE CAR! He subsequently sent me photos and GIA reports of diamonds that met my specifications. I found my diamond and the possibility of my dream ring getting closer. Still the apprehension of buying via phone/online weighed on my mind. Nissan told me one day, I will make the ring for you, I will ship it to you and you will love it, I promise. And when you have a smile in your face then you pay me… WHAT! Yes he said if you give me the ok that's what I will do. I agreed and true to his word I now have my dream diamond. GIA inscribed and certified. I asked so many questions and contacted him often even when he was on different time zones as he is constantly traveling, but always responded. I will miss talking to him… Aysel is his right hand person who is sweet and very professional and competent. Nissan, I have a perpetual smile on my face!
