About Diamonds

For centuries, Diamonds have been regarded as magical, beautiful, mysterious and powerful. In fact, the word Diamond comes from the Greek word adamas, meaning unconquerable. They have been sought after, fought over, and even worshiped. Diamonds are associated with wealth, achievement, status and love. Consequently, people buy Diamonds for all of these reasons, but the single greatest reason is love.

Buying a Diamond can seem confusing and even intimidating. But it doesn’t need to be. At Colonial Jewelers we pride ourselves in educating our customers in a friendly, no-pressure manner that will demonstrate why a Colonial Jewelers Diamond has the most value. Whatever your budget, we have a beautiful Diamond for you.
