About this item
"The book you can't do without ... all the information you need, in no-nonsense language."
--Rapaport Diamond Report
"An appropriate book for the uninformed public, but more than that, it is a good reference book for jewelers and their staffs, gem collectors, students of gemology, travelers, teachers and even those who know gemology but want a state-of-the-art review."
"Almost every newly engaged couple is eager to know as much as possible about their once-in-a-lifetime purchase ... the diamond engagement ring.... [This book] take[s] the guesswork out of this important decision ... [and helps you] obtain the best value for your money."
"The information needed for investing and purchasing gems of all types. Highly recommended."
"To answer critical buying questions, it takes an author who has been immersed in the jewelry business, has seen the full range of material, and is able to share those experiences in a thorough yet easy-to-read manner. Antoinette Matlins has managed to do just that with her Colored Gemstones and Diamonds buying guides."
--Gems & Gemology
"Provides consumers with a virtual 'key' to getting the stone they really want at the right prices."
"Restores the magic! [Will] entertain and enlighten all its readers and save some from heartbreak. Recommended reading."
