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.
Recommendation from friends is valuable. Unbiased testimonials on line are critical. Even then, the customer should meet with the diamond specialist/designer for an introduction AND the specialist should do so without any expectations. The personal relationship is a key factor in the diamond buying process.
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.
Aline joined the family business in 1989 after quitting law school. Rina joined in 1990 after graduating from BU's School of Fine Arts.
