There are tens of thousands of diamond companies on the market, but only 70 people in the world hold the distinction of being a Diamond Sightholder. Sightholders are accredited dealers that secure diamonds straight from the source. They are the first tier in diamond distribution, and they, alone, have exclusive rights to sell the world’s finest diamonds.
Bailey’s has recently entered into an exclusive partnership with a diamond sightholder and is now the only jewelry store in the world with a diamond sightholder in our stores. This allows us to have first access to a large selection of highly sought-after diamond inventory before anyone else.
By the time a natural diamond is mined and set into an engagement ring, it must pass through the hands of many skilled workers, from cutters to jewelers, each raising the value of the stone. One of the first steps that a rough diamond takes is being purchased by a diamond sightholder who will evaluate it and assess the color, shapes, and inclusions of the rough stone. By having a diamond sightholder on site, our stores will have access to a larger diamond inventory than ever before allowing us to supply our patrons with rare, stunning, and highly sought-after stones.
Our LA office, in the center of the diamond district, a world hub for diamonds, combined with our new exclusive diamond sightholder partnership ensures that we have the best selection of diamonds at the best value to help you create your perfect engagement ring.
