Investing in High Quality Loose Diamonds with Mark Hadley

No Comments

Is it true that many investors are ensuring their financial stability not only by investing in gold, but also stocking up the rarest diamonds they can get on the market?  According to diamond analysts and high-end jewelry experts,  eternal-value assets like high quality diamonds, are selling like crazy now.  Many customers acquire diamonds not to set them in into pendants, earrings or necklaces, but to have them in the banks for financial stability.

There is a new breed of diamond hunters emerging, the ones surfing the net to get their hands on loose diamonds to resell them and make pretty good money.  I was referred by my good friend to one of the most trusted and reputable Denver Jewelers, Mark Hadley.  Mark’s company is known for selling the purest, the rarest diamonds nation-wide at amazingly affordable, wholesale diamonds‘ prices.

Mark Hadley and his wife, Nataliya Hadley, attract customers that choose an extra expense of purchasing airline tickets just to visit Mark in Denver.  Many of them come to get that one of the kind colorless or fancy-colored diamond that will become a sure asset in their family.  Does this trend mean that diamonds are becoming “the gold” of financial investments?  I spend a day observing the endless parade of customers at Mark’s office, most of them interested in very high quality diamonds.    I was very much impressed by Mark’s and Natalya’s expertise, their unique and gracious way of guarding their clients through the process of selecting a perfect stone.   One of the customers noted that he is upgrading his wife’s engagement ring with the flawless diamond as a part of safe investment in our “tough financial times.”

I believe that my theory that loose diamonds are getting popular enough to compete with precious metals on international markets got enough factual support to say that diamonds are not just “Girls’ best friends…”

Mark and Nataliya’s, Cherry Creek Jewelers, Secret of Their Success

No Comments

While many chain jewelery stores remain empty these days (grim consequence of still-feared US financial crisis),  some of our local Colorado businesses — not only staying afloat, but — surprisingly — doing very, very well.  A perfect example:   Mark and Nataliya Hadleys’ jewelry business, a hidden “treasure chest” in prestigious Cherry Creek area.   Despite sad shopping prognoses (again this year), their company is thriving.   Why?  With very little advertising effort, they manage to attract more and more customers (some flying from other states) offering superb service, outstanding quality of diamonds, backed by certificates,  and — undoubtedly — unmatched prices.

I personally feel very lucky that I was introduced to Mark a few years ago when I was desperately shopping for a princess cut pure diamond my fiance wanted.  Most Denver jewelers gave me the price I couldn’t afford at that time.   Mark and Nataliya, with their friendly, easy-going approach, took such a wonderful care of me!   What a difference it was — to talk to someone like Mark–someone with many years of expertise, someone with personal and caring touch in everything he is doing!   Suddenly, everything felt right:  the small and home-like office atmosphere,  the amount of time Mark spent with me making sure that I will get the perfect setting for the diamond.   The stress was gone replaced by a very good feeling that I am dealing with the right guy.  And of course – the price that was at least 25 % less than whatever other jewelery stores called  I “a special manager’s discount.”  My fiance Kate and I walked out from Mark’s place knowing that we got exactly what she was dreaming about.

Holiday season, usually a very busy time for any store,  makes Mark and Nataliya’s office “crazy happy” with waiting lists of those wishing to purchase a perfect, yet well-priced gift for someone special.   Whatever the secret of Mark and Nataliya’s success story is, it makes all of us feel good — just knowing that some of our local Denver jewelry businesses are so successful.

Looking for an Engagement Ring?

Hey Denver, are you in the market for an engagement ring?  Are you starting to get that stomach sinking sense of going through the entire ordeal of finding a ring and then on top of that you are just as worried about the proposal, then it might be time to enlist some help. Many clients come to me, ready to get engaged, but too busy to find time to thoroughly research the 4 C’s (cut clarity, carat weight, and color).

Many of you find yourselves in jewelry stores feeling pressured, and not sure if they’re getting an honest price, actually knowing for sure you are not getting an honest price. This is most likely one of the major purchases that you’ll make in the course of your lifetime, and you want to make sure that you’re dealing with someone who you can trust. If you find that you’ve been shopping around and you don’t have a good feel in your gut about the people who you’ve been dealing with, listen to your sixth sense – it’s often right. Dealers who are honest shouldn’t give you a strange feeling – ever. Getting engaged is stressful enough. Your focus should be on how you’re going to ask, not going to several different Denver jewelers, hoping that you got a good deal and chose the right setting.

Book an appointment with me, we’ll meet in person, and discuss your budget or ideas. A lot of guys even bring a picture of their girlfriend and just tell me about her. Often based on the jewelry that she wears and a picture, I can get a good sense of what her tastes are like. We will then pick the perfect diamond and perfect setting for the perfect girl.
