Meet Your Diamond Concierge – Owner/Designer Susan DeVore

Finding the perfect diamond can be a challenge unless you have someone knowledgeable to help you navigate the option. Susan wants to be your Family Jeweler and Diamond Concierge!

When you go to a nice hotel, there is often a Concierge there–someone whose job is to help make your experience the best ever. They answer your questions, help find what you need, and take care of the arrangements for you, so all you have to do is make memories. That’s exactly what shopping for an engagement ring, or any expression of love, should be!

If you think you’re getting serious, don’t make a serious mistake! Susan is a GIA AJP (Applied Jewelry Professional) and is a GIA Diamonds Graduate. What does that mean? It means she has the expertise, education and training to help you decide what criteria are important to you. It means showing you how to make the most of your budget, and helping you find a well-proportioned, brilliant diamond. It’s about presenting diamonds for you to see in person, carefully selected with your criteria and budget in mind with grading reports to back it up.What is the perfect diamond? It’s more than just the 4 C’s. It’s one that makes your heart skip a beat. 

At Royal Hummingbird, we have a simple philosophy.

With diamond mines all over the globe and the rising popularity of Lab-Grown Diamonds, there is no reason to have an ugly diamond or settle for one that doesn’t make you happy.


Lab-Grown Diamonds: What You Need to Know

Lab-grown diamonds vs. natural diamonds. They both look fabulous and can last forever. What’s the difference between them? One is grown by scientists in a laboratory for 2-8 weeks, while the other was created 1.0 to 3.5 billion years ago in the earth’s crust by nature. Growth time is the major difference, and the maker – Man or Mother Nature.

What is the difference between Lab-Grown Diamonds and Mined Diamonds?

Lab-Grown diamonds are NOT simulates. Scientists create them in a lab starting with a rough crystal and are grown using either HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) or CVD (Chemical Vapor Disposition) – sometimes both methods. Lab-Grown diamonds can cost 30-50% less than Mined diamonds.
