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

At the retail / street level mostly everything is overpriced. However, booking a tour of the Diamond District will give you access to the same wholesalers that deal with internationally certified quality gemstones at wholesale prices. It;s all about who you know in the NYC...More
I walk by here all the time. It's just too dense to be useful. I'm sure you can get good deals if you were an insider, but really they ones you have access too, street facing shops, mostly cater to tourists and tourist prices.
We were here the other day. Its nothing special. This area is very over rated. Yes there are a lot of jewelers here, but you wont find any bargains here. Their prices were high. Speaking from past experience, avoid the stores here and stop at...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.
It is quite an experience to walk down both sides of the street and see all of the window displays of gems. I originally went for the purpose of trying to sell a bracelet, but end up not doing so. I went into two places...More
To walk through this area is awesome. From jewelers to the shops up and down both sides of the sidewalks. I could smell the DILL pickles in there wooden barrels outside the shops. Like all places in the city. Once your nose smells the food...More
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
