The Ultimate Diamond Buyer’s Guide

With the help of Diamond Expert, you will have access to the most comprehensive resource of diamond knowledge online, to help inform your buying decision before parting with your money.

The Diamond Education section is designed to give you all the vital information about diamonds because I understand how complicated and confusing buying diamonds can be. It gets even harder if you aren’t aware of what influences the value of a diamond. Therefore, it’s my goal to simplify the diamond and engagement ring buying process with my guides.

This website is a resource site, and I don’t offer for sale diamonds or engagement rings. The information provided here are guides to help you to get the most from your budget.

About the Diamond Expert



I’m Louis Jacobs, and I am the founder of the Diamond Expert website. I’m a diamond fanatic from Antwerp, Belgium. Growing up in the diamond capital of the world I became captivated with the precious stone from quite early on in life.

At 8 years old I took it upon myself to explore the world of diamonds, and by the time I was turning 20, had earned the title of “Diamond Expert” among my family and friends.

I was very fortunate to kick-start my career in the diamond world at the Diamond Quarter over 30 years ago, and have learned a great deal of diamond knowledge since then.

Outside of work, I’m the go-to person for family and friends needing help on buying diamond products, especially from my male friends for selecting the best engagement rings they could afford.

Now that I’ve retired, I feel I’m obliged to share my decades of insider knowledge online with you, to ensure you’re informed at every stage of your diamond purchase journey.
