Gem Diamond Company has a new home!

As of November 15, Gem Diamond Company will have a new home. We are relocating our offices to the ground floor of our building as part of a new strategic alliance with Shaftel Diamond Company (SDC). It's a short move, but an important one. SDC, an established diamond and fine jewelry wholesale firm and a member of the Diamond Dealers Club of New York, now maintains a large professional showroom with adjoining manufacturing facility which is open to the public.

Gem Diamond Company will move its operations to the SDC suite which will provide our local clients with a superb destination for shopping Gem Diamond and SDC merchandise as well as access to service, repair and custom jewelry design on premises.

SDC offers a full range of high quality finished jewelry in gold and platinum in addition to loose diamonds and colored gemstones. The alignment of the two companies will enhance both in terms of product selection, service and reach. The two companies have been trading partners for many years and the new arrangement will enable even closer collaboration in a variety of important areas.

In the words of Keith Shaftel, President of SDC, "the alliance will be successful because both companies share a passion for product quality, creative design, and extraordinary customer service."

Visitors to can expect to see lots of new SDC items on the site very soon. And we plan to put many of them on sale at great discounts in our Outlet department. Subscribers to the newsletter will have additional unadvertised opportunities for deep discounts on select pieces.

Our new address is:

Gem Diamond Company
6222 Richmond Avenue Suite 150
