Sevan is…for lack of a better term…the man! My fiance has had her engagement ring for over a year and loves it just as much today as the day I proposed and she still gets compliments on it from random strangers. As a guy, buying an engagement ring can be a pretty intimidating and a slightly terrifying experience. Sevan is calm, honest and to the point. I shopped around quite a bit and found Sevan to be the best on price and on style. I tried big stores like Birks who offers you Perrier when you come in the front door (guess what – you pay for that whether you think so or not) and smaller independent places on Queen west (which was definitely more expensive and I wouldn’t even have been given the opportunity to choose the diamond myself!). Beyond the far better prices and quality design, the best part of my experience with Sevan is that he actually seems to have your interests in mind. We stayed within my budget and he helped me pick a great diamond. Normally most jewelers just go by the four Cs…but Sevan taught me about things like the size of the diamonds table. Which meant that he ended up suggesting a diamond which had a smaller carat size but looked larger to the naked eye because of the table size. He also emphasized the proportions of the ring which can influence how much it sparkles…or the ‘fire’ rating of the diamond. All this to say we are incredibly happy with Sevan and his work and will be going back for our wedding bands..
We don’t sell our diamonds online, and here’s why.Design by Sevan While it would be profitable for Design by Sevan to sell online,
it’s not in the best interest of our loyal customers. Every diamond in the world is unique and complex, and a diamond’s ratings alone can’t possibly express its beauty and brilliance.
Two diamonds with identical ratings can look drastically different. One might be amazingly gleaming while another with the same rating could be as lifeless and dull. We never recommend anyone buying a diamond without seeing it in person first.
The fact is, many online diamond companies don’t own their diamonds—they’re merely looking at a grading report and often don’t see the diamonds they’ve sold before they’re shipped to the buyer. How can you know what you’re buying if they don’t know what they’re selling?
Design by Sevan devotes itself to being different. Our diamond buyers, Herman And Sevan, go overseas three to four times a year to Belgium and northwest territories. It’s expensive and time-consuming, but it allows us to offer our customers a selection of the most breathtaking diamonds possible. Each diamond we sell is hand-selected by us after a careful evaluation. We only sell diamonds we are proud to put our name on.
