Virginia, I’m passing this on, because these people are really great
to do business with, AND they have beautiful Russian-cut melee.
Joseph A. Diamonds, 55 W.47th St. NY, NY., 10036 ( 800) 832-1922 /
(212) 730-4181. Ask for Benjamin. VS1/E-F stones, 1.0 to 1.7 mm:
$475/pct. They are a small company, and their service is amazing. If
I would call and say that I need only 10 1.0mm stones, and they all
have to be EXACTLY 1.00 mm, he would match them all with a
micrometer and send them out overnight. You can tell them I referred
For fancy colored diamond melee, I like MANAK, 101 Utah St., Suite
207, San Francisco, CA 94107 (415) 255-4768. They deal in natural
stones, have really intense yellow, coffee, reddish brown, hot pinks,
black, and champagne. They also carry antique cuts, rose cuts,
beads, briolettes, AND emerald, ruby, sapphire stones in most of the
same cuts. Very good prices.
I'm sure that everyone will have their favorite suppliers. There
are a lot of very fine small companies out there that would love to
do business with you.
