We Know Diamonds

At Pollock’s we have built our business on the four pillars: grading accuracy, consumer education, high quality and true value. In contrast to many diamond merchants, who have succumbed to competitive pressure with “loose grading practices,” Pollock’s Jewelers continues to maintain stringent standards. Although many jewelry stores use other “laboratories” to certify their diamonds, there are only three accredited gem labs in the world; the others are just “cert houses.” many taking advantage of customers by grading the diamonds better than what they really are and then making the customer think they are getting a great price. We at Pollock’s strive to protect our customers with education, not only about diamonds, but the laboratories that grade those diamonds.

Our General Manager, Clayton Hill, is both a Certified Gemological Appraiser through the American Gem Society, and a Graduate Gemologist through the Gemological Institute of America. Along with being very well educated, Clay has a unique gift of putting his diamond knowledge in terms that everyone can understand.

So, whether you’re shopping for the diamond of your dreams, or if you just want to learn the facts about diamonds and how they are graded, explore any of the three highly educational links found at the bottom of this page, then come in to Pollock’s and let us “make you sparkle.”

The Four C’s

If you are planning on purchasing a diamond, Pollock’s Jewelers wants you to know as much as possible about how diamonds are classified. The cost of a diamond is determined by the four C’s which are the top criteria with which one needs to become familiar: cut, color, clarity and carat weight. Please refer to this diagram to help familiarize yourself or stop by our store and we will gladly go over this with you.
