Whether you are considering a loose diamond as the start of an engagement ring, to upgrade an existing piece of jewelry, or for another design entirely, shopping for a loose diamond can seem overwhelming, so we’ve created a guide to help simplify the process.
Nothing compares to the brilliance and fire of a loose diamond. By purchasing a loose diamond apart from a setting, you are able to get the best look at the stone to really see the 4 C’s— cut, color, clarity, and carat weight— up close. You can view inclusions that a setting might otherwise hide or distract from, allowing you to make an informed decision about the diamond you are investing in.
We are happy to offer our customers an extensive collection of loose diamonds, including different diamond shapes from round brilliant, princess, oval, cushion, and radiant cuts, to different fancy color diamonds.

“This jewelry store has been in Chico for many, many years. The owners are wonderful to do business with and are quite educated on diamonds and other fine gems. Lisa Nolta, the owner, is also an award-winning designer of fine jewelry.
If you’re looking for cookie-cutter or department store jewelry, then go to the mall. If you looking for custom designs and a (big) notch above the rest, then this is the store to shop.” — John M. on Yelp
