We are an Industry Powerhouse, with a concentration on Loose Diamonds

Visit our Jewelry Store in Schenectady, NY

Founded by a woman, my mother Sondra in 1997, literally sorting Fine Jewelry on our dining room table. 20 years later we are still one of the few woman owned Fine Jewelry stores in the Country. With 30 years of combined experience we have become an industry powerhouse with a concentration on Loose Diamonds in all shapes and sizes. Our Loose Diamonds are hand selected by me specifically for your needs. I am never dusting off old stones from the back of the vault, we keep it fresh and with new inventory arriving weekly. I promise, you will never be stuck choosing from two stones that you don't really love. We are beating our competitors prices daily and we don't work on commission so theres never any pressure. All of our Loose Diamonds are GIA Certified, responsibly sourced, and absolutely gorgeous! Sit down with Sondra or I and let us show you a couple secrets to save some big money so you can get her the biggest most beautiful Diamond that she deserves. More diamonds for less money, everyday at Sondra's!
