If you are a lover of jewelry, this is a MUST see. If you like to window shop or if you are seriously in the market to purchase a diamond this is a definite must. Go educated and with a budget. The shop owners can...More

I toured through this well-known area this past weekend while in NY City for a wedding. There were a good number of diamond & jewelry stores in this "district," which really only stretches for one block on 47th street. I was surprised to find that...More

Totally overrated and over priced. Most of the Diamonds are sourced from South Africa, and it is at least 30 - 40 % cheaper to purchase the highest quality Gemstones through Internationally certified and known Diamond dealers in South Africa.More

Really high end jewellery shops in this area and you will need a very big wallet. It is really nice to window shop along the many shops. Some very interesting items and some out of this world items. Well worth a stroll here.
