International Diamond Distributors (IDD) is a diamond jewelry manufacturer and loose diamond supplier with a stellar reputation for dazzling jewelry classics, fashionable diamond jewelry and an extensive loose-stone inventory at highly competitive prices. Since 1977, IDD has specialized in serving the needs of independent jewelers and has steadily grown into a major loose diamond and jewelry supplier for retail stores across North America.
IDD is also one of the first companies to introduce an easy-to-use, interactive web site that enables jewelers to browse through its extensive inventory, customize pieces and place orders.
Although based in New York's diamond district, IDD is a global company having associates and partnerships with offices and factories in Belgium, India, Israel, China and Thailand. This gives the company a competitive edge, enabling it to offer the best values in the industry.
IDD's staff of diamond and jewelry professionals provides customers with personal attention, unmatched service and unbeatable prices. The company prides itself on working with retailers to make appropriate merchandise decisions. All its efforts and resources are directed towards helping the independent jeweler become more successful.
IDD is renowned for its appealing jewelry programs and indispensable basics: diamond earrings, solitaires, three-stone rings and bridal sets. Its diamond earrings program - featuring round, princess and radiant-cut stones, is one of the best in the jewelry industry, both for its huge assortment and immediate replenishment of pairs sold. IDD's band collection features a wide range of ladies' and men's anniversary and eternity rings. All bands are machine set and comfort fit.
Although most of IDD's line is featured in 14K gold, retailers can order most pieces in alternative metals such as 18K gold, platinum and palladium, and white, yellow or rose gold. IDD also offers the ability to order most of its products in multiple diamond qualities.
The company's offerings are divided into three dazzling collections:
- Classic: Diamond stud and hoop earrings, solitaire rings and pendants, three-stone rings, anniversary and eternity bands and line bracelets
- Bridal: Diamond engagement rings, wedding rings and semi-mounts
- Fashion: Up-to-the-minute styling in fashionable earrings, rings, bracelets and pendants
The craftsmanship on all jewelry is superior, with perfectly matched stones and meticulous stone-setting distinguishing IDD's designs from its competitors. Eighty percent of the jewelry is manufactured in New York, mostly by IDD's in-house production team, while small-stone total-weight pieces are set overseas. The company's stud earrings program is its sales leader.
IDD's classic and fashion diamond jewelry, engagement rings and bridal sets stand out for superb styling, top quality and highly competitive pricing.
IDD's diamonds are sourced from affiliates and partners with offices and factories in diamond cutting centers around the world. The company's choice diamond supplier is Eskay Enterprises / Diya International, a Mumbai diamond manufacturer run by Satish Mehta. An abundant selection of expertly cut loose diamonds in all shapes characterizes IDD's inventory, from VS-1 to I-3 in clarity and D to K in color. Rounds are available from 0.01 carats up to eight carats in size; fancies, from 0.10 carats to eight carats. The company sells certified and non-certified rounds, princess, asscher, cushion, radiants, square radiants, marquises, ovals, pears, hearts and emerald-cut diamonds. An extensive inventory is available with GIA and EGL certificates.
The loose-stone inventory is accessible to jewelers through the IDD web site: www.iddjewelry.com. Jewelers may order online or speak by telephone to expert diamond salespeople who are GIA-certified diamond graders and graduate gemologists. Stones are available on approval memo for as long as one week. Jewelers can be confident when they purchase loose diamonds from IDD that they're well-cut, accurately graded stones.
