Diamond Education

We don't sell, we teach.

We empower our customers, with all the tools they need to buy the most beautiful diamond possible.

Springer's Jewelers now hosts one of the largest loose diamond inventories in the Northeast. There is literally nothing you could possibly desire in a diamond that we don't have either in stock or have access to in 24 hours. We have so many diamonds because we sell so many diamonds, and that insures you will find exactly the diamond you want at Springer's Jewelers.

Gem-quality diamonds occur in many hues. In the range from colorless to light yellow or light brown. Colorless diamonds are the rarest. Other natural colors (Blue, Red, Pink for example) are known as fancy – their color grading is different than from white diamonds.
