How do you pay for a diamond?
If you've saved the money for a diamond, terrific! If not, you have two other options.
You can pay with a credit card, but you'll obviously incur interest rates that make the cost of the diamond higher. A better option we offer is a layaway plan . The customary layaway requires you to put 20 percent down, then pay the balance in three installments over three months. The best part of our layaway plan is that it is interest free!
