Diamond Scams do exist but there is an easy way to avoid them.

There are diamond scams out there that can cause you some grief if you become a victim. They range from false certificates to treated diamonds. The best way to avoid scams is to buy from a reputable store. It is that easy.

Stores that have been in business for many years and are successful have something in common. They don't scam people. Especially today in the internet age. If a company rips-off one of their customers the story is going to be in every forum and chat room across the internet. A good company will not risk scamming you for a couple hundred dollars for fear destroying their reputation.

If you are buying a diamond at Joe's discount diamonds located next to the pawn shop you are just asking to be scammed by a variety of tricks. Why open yourself up to the possibility? Save yourself the headache and frustration of trying to determine if you are getting scammed and shop at a reputable store.
