David Golibroda, Founder and Owner of Diamond Experts, has been helping Romeos and their Juliets choose quality diamonds to be made into bespoke jewellery for over 26 years – eight of those in Hong Kong.
Following in the footsteps of his father, a member of the Israeli Diamond Exchange since 1974, David has close contacts at major diamond trading centres worldwide, which means he gets his diamonds directly from source – including a regular supply of fine diamonds in fancy shapes and special fancy colours from Israel’s top diamond manufacture. His mission as a private jeweller? To provide Hong Kong clients with the best stones at a wholesale price, and have them made into stunning pieces of jewellery.
As passionate as he is about the lustre and beauty of fine diamonds – “I love diamonds; they are my life!” – David believes, first and foremost, that they should be accessible to everyone. “We do sell high-end jewellery and very unique and rare fancy-coloured diamonds, as well as big, flawless, investment-grade diamonds,” he says. “But we cater to almost any budget.”
All of Diamond Expert’s diamonds are 100% natural and come with a GIA certification which assures their quality and authenticity. The question is, how does David source these high quality stones at such agreeable prices?
“As a member of the Israeli Diamond Exchange, and also a company that is engaged in cutting diamonds and the subsequent wholesale of diamonds, Diamond Experts can guarantee the lowest prices in the market for finished diamonds,” David explains. “Our running costs are much lower than a retail shop and we do not pay for middlemen, so we can stay competitive and attractive on our prices.”
While providing value for money is a priority, David is equally passionate about informing his clients, sharing his 20+ years knowledge of the diamond industry and diamonds, gemstones and jewellery – and dispelling a few myths. “Many people, who spend huge amounts of money on fine diamonds, not only do not have enough knowledge and information but also have many misconceptions about diamonds and the diamond industry. Over the years, I have met many clients who have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars because they believe in those myths,” he says. “This is why, when working with clients, I help them understand all the different certifications and I explain the different cuts, shapes and colours, as well as the advantages, shortages and true value of each diamond. My mission is to guide clients to choose the best diamond for their budget and, most importantly, the diamond that will reflect the most value for their money.”
