    "Love this place! There is no better selection anywhere for beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry. You have to see it to believe it! I am a repeat customer and tell all of my friends about them. Mais and Troy are who I typically work with. Their customer service is incredible. The store has 6-7 jewelers onsite and can do beautiful custom work without paying premium prices. They have loose stones of all shapes and sizes that they bring out to show you how the setting would look. We worked with Mais for my engagement ring, wedding band, and my husband’s wedding band. I worked with Troy for earrings and a watch. I had a girlfriend in town from MI that I took there who has been searching jewelry stores all over for an antique looking diamond and sapphire engagement ring. She had almost given up hope. She flew in to FL and I took her to Gold & Diamond Source. We worked with Troy and in less than 20 minutes, he helped my friend find the ring of her dreams. Highly recommend! The owners, Steve and Julie, also give back to the community. They are the BEST!? — Jessica T. on Facebook

    "I have visited GDS a few times since I got engaged and the customer service has been consistently great! Someone is always at the front door to greet you and show you in the right direction. The sales people I have been paired up with always seem happy and eager to please!

    Besides the customer service, who wouldn't enjoy themselves while looking at all the shiny diamonds?

    I had the pleasure to work to Alexis (the brunette) about what kind of wedding band would match my uniquely shaped engagement ring. She gave me so many options and went above and beyond by requesting a price quote from the designer who made my engagement ring for a matching wedding band. She emailed me on her days off to keep me in the loop!!

    Alexis was with another customer when my fiancé and I came back in to buy, but Veronica took care of us as if we'd been working with her all along. She made the check out experience painless and quick.

    I will always recommend GDS when a friend is getting engaged. We've already sent two happy couples their way!" — Nina M. on Yelp

    "I've seen their commercials for years now. Decided to make the trip from South Tampa to upgrade my wedding band. I'm so here for all the elaborate decorating let me tell you. Including a FABULOUS pair of gold shoes worn by one of the fashionable gentleman associates. Anyway.

    From the second I walked in, they rolled out the red carpet, and every customer thereafter they just provided stellar customer service. And well you might be thinking, yeah lady it's a jewelry store so they have to, to which i say not so fast. Customer service at most places, including another local jewellery store in the area, is quite lacking.

    I worked with Mr. Patrick Kelly, who's a G&D veteran, i learned. PK was fab, listened to exactly what i wanted and within ten minutes I was set. They sized it for me that day, and boxed my new ring up so beautifully. The quality of their products is so easily visible and they provided me with a lifetime warranty, including free cleanings and such.

    COVID: extra precautions all around, excellent job!

    Thanks PK and the G&D team!! Y'all work your butts off! Cheers!" — Brienna A. on Yelp

     

  4. Engagement Ring Tips and Tricks You Need

    14 Karat White Gold Yellow Diamond Emerald Halo Ring With a Euro Shank Featuring a GIA Certified 3.06 Carat Radiant Fancy Yellow Diamond Accented By .72 Carat Total Weight Round Brilliant Diamonds

    Purchasing an engagement ring represents one of the biggest moments of your life— you've found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and it's time to take the next step. Purchasing an engagement ring is a big step both emotionally and financially, so of course it is a purchase you will want to get right. Just like buying a car or putting a down payment on a house, it's best to go into it informed. 

    At Gold & Diamond Source, we've been helping the Tampa Bay-area say "I do" since 1984. Today we've pulled together our tips and tricks for discerning brides- and grooms-to-be considering buying an engagement ring. 

    Engagement Ring Tips and Tricks You Need Now

    Ignore the 3-months salary rule.

    We've heard it all: that you should spent two months pay, three months pay, and a certain percentage of your annual salary on an engagement ring. This is a myth; the best budget is the one you come up with and that feels comfortable in your own financial situation. Remember, you can always finance, or pay with a credit card. Learn more about financing here.

    Try on different diamond shapes to get the biggest look for your buck.

    Round diamonds appear the largest compared to other shapes. While round diamonds have the potential to sparkle more than any other diamond shape, their symmetry also makes them appear slightly smaller in comparison to a fancy shaped diamond of the same carat weight. The apparent size of any diamond, when viewed from the top down, can vary depending on the shape and size of the wearer’s hand. This is why it's a great idea to try on different diamond shapes and setting styles when beginning your engagement ring search.

    Make the 4 C's work for you.

    The 4 Cs are an acronym for cut, color, clarity and carat. These are the top four characteristics to look for when purchasing a diamond and together cover the most basic need-to-know diamond buying information. Brushing up on each of the 4 C's will help you determine which is most important to you and where your opportunities are for saving money. Learn more about the 4 C's here.

    Opt for near-colorless diamonds.

    D grade (colorless) diamonds are the rarest, making them the most expensive color grade. By looking for near-colorless diamonds (diamond color grades G through J) instead, you will find diamond color grades that will face up white— it is difficult for those who are not gemologists to differentiate between colorless and near-colorless diamonds.

    To save money in your setting and allow for a larger gemstone, consider setting a diamond with a lower color grade such as K or L in a warm-colored metal. Warm colored metals such as yellow or rose gold engagement rings will conceal some yellow coloration.

    Spend time choosing a setting.

    Settings can truly make or break your center stone. A diamond set higher up, like a cathedral setting, will appear slightly larger than it really is. Halo settings, where tiny diamonds surround your center stone, make the center stone look larger. You can choose a slightly smaller carat weight for your center stone if you choose a halo setting, which will save you money in the long run. Consider the width of your shank, too— a wide shank can take away from the center stone and make it appear smaller, where a thinner band can let the center stone shine.

    Designing your own engagement ring is easier than you think. 

    Custom designing your engagement ring can actually be very easy (and cost efficient!) to design the ring of your dreams. A custom, handcrafted piece of jewelry allows you the opportunity to create and design a one of a kind piece of jewelry that will become a part of you. Our expert custom designer gives you the opportunity to create the jewelry piece of your dreams. We use the latest design tools to show you exactly what your piece of jewelry will look like so you can be assured it will be exactly what you are looking for and enjoy for years to come. Learn more about custom design here.

    "Had to go back out to this location to drop off a piece of jewelry that my husband purchased for me to be altered. Tyler was his usual pleasant and helpful self. Lol...
    The business was taking a lot of precautions amid the Covid restrictions. I found that to be pretty awesome. I could tell that the owners truly care about the safety of both their customers and themselves. The gift bags with the gloves, masks and other anti-bacterial products that they were giving away at the door with a great added touch.
    I definitely wasn't expecting it to be that crowded on that day.
    We actually had the pleasure of meeting Julie. I guess I wasn't expecting her to be so kind and helpful. It was a very nice surprise. She was very kind and pleasant to talk to. She is very down to earth. Which I guess I was not expecting after seeing her on commercials and billboards and such. Thanks Julie!
    My husband surprised me with purchasing a Mother's Day great gift which Julie wrapped for me and I was very appreciative.   I wasn't expecting it nor was I expecting her to be wrapping it for me.
    All in all it was yet another pleasant shopping experience. Tyler is always on top of his game.
    Other people who choose to stand around and look at you and not offer to help should take note of the way Tyler handles his business.
    Just saying.....
    I cannot stress enough how glad I am that we "DID" decide to listen to an associate of ours and check out this store. It is well worth the trip across the bay. We had seen the store in passing for years now. But had never checked it out.
    We had no idea what we were missing!
    Being the jewelry lover  that I am, I know that they'll be seeing more of me in the future.
    Thanks again Tyler and Julie!
    You rock!" — Shernea D. on Yelp

  5. March Aquamarine Birthstone: Fast Facts

    Happy birthday, Match babies! Those celebrating a birthday in March can do so with the beautiful blue aquamarine birthstone. We're diving into fast facts about this magical birthstone for March below.

    It's all in a name

    March's tranquil birthstone is called Aquamarine and its name is derived from the Latin word for seawater, which makes a lot of sense when you take into account the serene light blue of this precious gem.

    Known for its color

    Aquamarine usually forms in various shades of light blue, a color that effortlessly compliments most skin types, eye colors, and clothing choices, adding to its versatility. Aquamarine often forms sizable crystals that make it perfect for being polished and fashioned into beautiful jewelry.

     

    What about the folklore?

    Throughout history, Romans believed that if a frog figure was carved on an aquamarine, it served to reconcile enemies and make them friends. Romans also believed that the stone absorbs the atmosphere of young love: “When blessed and worn, it joins in love, and does great things.” Aquamarine was also the popular gift for grooms to give their bride following the consummation of their marriage. Aquamarine is known as the sailor’s gem, ensuring the safe and prosperous passage across stormy seas. In Medieval times, the stone was thought to reawaken the love of married couples. It was also believed to render soldiers invincible.

     

    Dual meaning

    In addition to being the birthstone for the month of March, Aquamarine is also the commemorative gem of the 19th wedding anniversary.

     

    Birthstone jewelry

    Here are just a few of our aquamarine birthstone favorites:

    Aquamarine & Diamond Oval Halo Ring Featuring a 2.10 Carat Oval Aquamarine and .37 Carat Total Weight Round Brilliant Diamonds
    Aquamarine & Diamond Drop Pendant Featuring a .75 Carat Round Aquamarine and .08 Carat Total Weight Round Brilliant Diamonds

    "We bought our engagement ring here and it is now the only place I'd ever go for jewelry. My fiance was with me as she wanted to pick out something unique and specific. They helped us pick out the perfect ring, ordered the correct stone (pretty quickly) and never tried to upsell me- which may not have been too hard considered my fiance was right next to me.

    Troy was our main salesman and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and just a down-to-earth guy. 10/10 experience." — Vincent M. on Yelp
