ADCO Diamonds is a family owned business. Norair and Meline Arslanian opened the doors in 1980. Their daughters; Aline and Rina; joined the company after earning their Bachelor's degrees from BU. Aline is a Graduate Gemologist from GIA. Rina is a Diamonds Graduate from GIA.
For almost 40 years; we have had the privilege to serve many satisfied customers with whom we have developed lasting relationships. As we advertise very little; the majority of our customers come to us based on recommendations.
We are very serious about conflict-free diamonds. Not only do we have written guarantees from our suppliers that our diamonds are conflict-free; but we also have written guarantees that all our stones are non-synthetic.
We specializes in loose diamonds for engagement rings and other jewelry; including custom made. Our Graduate Gemologists' expertise and service separate us from others.
The process always begins with a comprehensive education about diamonds which empowers the customer to select a diamond with confidence. Then; the discussion is about jewelry design. Either we work with an existing picture of customer's choice; or we collaborate on a design using existing models in my inventory. ¬†(Of course; if the customer likes an existing ring; then there is no need for CAD). The next step is creating a CAD rendering usually presented to customer via e-mail. Once the CAD is approved; the customer can choose to examine a wax model printed from the CAD. After approval of wax; the ring is casted; set and finished. This process is critical to maintain transparency and allow customer to have control over product design.
Our passion was inspired by my love for jewelry. We love to be adorned with pieces encrusted with diamonds; colored gems; or just plain shiny pieces made of rich colored gold. Jewelry is as important if not more so than other accessories. They tell a story; celebrate milestones; or trigger memories. We cherish our pieces that were handed down from our mom or grandmother. Jewelry triggers so many emotions--love; happiness; even melancholy (We remember and miss our grandmother when we wear some of her pieces). Our mission is to help create these important and quality pieces and perhaps even to be remembered for them; even if it's for a second.
First, we are well educated, well informed and trained in diamonds. We speak with authority and have many years experience. We have lived through many changes in the industry, good and bad, and have incorporated the good ones into our practice, i.e, assuring our diamonds are conflict free.
Second, our business is run by women (not unique to us) who love jewelry, understand a woman's expectations in jewelry and cherish the relationships made with customers. I feel our expertise coming from a woman's perspective is a definite advantage to the first time diamond customer and to the returning customer who would like guidance.
Having our showroom in the Jeweler's Exchange Building automatically keeps our diamond prices competitive! However, it's important to understand that we offer high quality custom products that will be priced higher than a mass produced one but is nevertheless affordably priced.
Aline joined the family business in 1989 after quitting law school. Rina joined in 1990 after graduating from BU's School of Fine Arts.
Our experience is the customers who do choose to work with us is because we make them feel comfortable with the experience. We are educated in our field, honest, friendly, and chill (to quote my teenager). We don't push and don't expect to sell on the first visit.
