  • I went to DWD in search of a vintage wedding band and an engagement ring upgrade. I made a same day (same hour) appointment at the office and it was a near perfect experience. They taught me all about shopping for the right diamond. I felt very comfortable in their office… no pressure, no gimmicks, no upselling….I really feel like I learned about diamonds from the experience. Dave had a couple of diamonds ordered the next day an I came back to check them out. They had a brand new engagement ring crafted within a week! The quality was incredible and the price was quite reasonable, and I am proud to be a long term client of DWD. I will be back o this place for any of our jewelry needs and I would highly recommend Dave due to the customer service and expertise.
  • DWD IS AMAZING! I came to DWD after feeling defeated trying to design my ring through other local jewelers. I was given my great grandmothers diamond to use in my engagement ring. It didn’t seem like other jewelers wanted to take the time with me because I already had a diamond and they were trying to get me into as setting I didn’t like just to get me out the door. To the rescue came DWD. They answered right away and immediately stated communicating with me through text and sending me pictures of different settings that matched everything I was describing to them. We set up a time to meet at their office and the had everything prepared for us, took the time to show us what our setting would look like with a diamond and explained how the process would work. I knew I could trust them with my great grandmother’s diamond and they communicated with us all along the wat while the ring was being set. We are so appreciative of DWD and their passion to work with couples to make their dreams a reality. Thank you DWD!
  • My husband and I went to visit desert wholesale diamonds and had a wonderful experience. We were able to customize a ring that we wanted and they were able to get it done in time for Christmas. The ring turned out beautifully, and they provided great customer service. I highly recommend using this company for your jewelry needs.
  • Once again, you out did yourself. She loves the ring so much. Thank you Dave for creating something so beautiful and unique for her.
  • Diamond Dave and his crew were wonderful! I could not be more happy with the engagement ring my fiancé created with them. I gave them ideas of what I wanted and it turned out beautiful. They were so patient with both my fiancé and I deciding what diamond we wanted. In fact we went in and had a few appointments before choosing the diamond in the ring. The experience was amazing and their prices could not be beat. Beyond happy with this ring!
  • They were phenomenal! We called from a few blocks away after visiting another jeweler and not finding the quality of diamond we wanted. They called us back within minutes and they were able to meet with us immediately. They spent time reviewing diamonds various qualities and then brought out several diamonds to get a feel for our comfort zone in regards to quality, size and price. After a few go arounds, Diamond Dave brought out two incredibly beautiful diamonds he had just received. It was hard to choose between the two but we chose an absolutely stunning oval solitaire. I've never seen a diamond sparkle the way this diamond does. We will be getting our wedding bands there soon, without a doubt. You will have an amazing, fun and pressure free experience with these two. This place is a hidden gem!!
  • Very helpful, responsive, knowledgable, and fast. They helped me design and build a 10 year anniversary ring for my wife. I live in the Imperial Valley and he was able to do the whole thing over the phone and text. The ring looks amazing, I am glad I trusted his experience and my wife is too. Thank you guys.
  • My fiance got my engagement ring custom made through this company, and my ring is so beautiful. If you are looking for great quality at a supremely affordable price, look no further than here. They have excellent customer service and they helped my fiance every step of the way. Desert Diamond Wholesale is the perfect place for diamond jewelry of any kind.
  • This place is definitely a hidden gem! I had a pendant that my mom gave me on my wedding day. I never wore it because I just don't wear a lot of jewelry. Ten years later, I was referred to diamond Dave at desert wholesale diamond. He and his team did an amazing job at transforming my pendant to a ring! I know have a very blingy wedding ring that represents the love of my husband and my parents. Thank you diamond masters for creating this possibility for me and my family!!!
  • Dave is as great as the reviews say he is. Needed to replace a lost diamond and prong in my engagement ring, and while I was there ordered our wedding bands. Very reasonable, excellent customer service, very personable. I'll be using him as my personal jeweler from now on. I didn't see where other reviewers mentioned this, but he is by appointment only.
  • If I had a vault filled with cash, I would trust David Kantor with the keys. He is a gentleman, a true professional and my personal jeweler for life. He and his family are well-established in this community and he has a unique business model. I don't need fancy showrooms. I want good value, quality information, and sound advice from a person with high integrity. I highly recommend Desert Wholesale Diamond.
  • Dave is the best diamond dealer in the desert! We have bought diamond earrings, wedding rings and had our jewelry cleaned and examined by Dave. Let me tell you he's the best! He works out of office building by appointment only. This keeps his prices super low and his diamonds are the best quality! Skip all the overpriced jewelry stores and make an appointment with Dave!
  • Just picked up my wedding ring from Dave yesterday and I am speechless! My late grandmother gave me her wedding rings and with those I used the diamonds and gold to create a beautiful, sentimental ring for my upcoming wedding! This ring is so close to my heart and I will forever cherish it. Thank you so much Dave for knowing exactly what I wanted!! You truly are the best!!
  • Diamond Dave is the best! He is a fourth generation diamond broker who is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about his craft. He found us a spectacular diamond in the exact style I wanted, helped us pick out the setting and made sure it was perfect. His price was also excellent as our appraisal proves. He also helped me take two other rings I had and transform them into one spectacular piece. I would never buy jewelry anywhere else.
  • My Fiance and I could not have had a better experience at DWD. We came in after our engagement and together designed the ring of her dreams. David was an immense help and talked us through every step of the way and we are beyond pleased with the way it turned out.
  • I LOVE DESERT WHOLESALE DIAMOND! Especially Diamond Dave. Looking for that perfect ring went from exciting to the most depressing experience. I wanted something simple but elegant. Every single store in the palm desert mall was the same but the thought of building or designing the ring was overwhelming. I called and Dave got me in right away and he has everything to make the ring of my dreams. He kept me informed through the whole process and it turned out perfect! There is no way I could have gotten this ring and close to the same price at any of the stores at the mall. Dave truly cares about his customers and the jewelry he makes. Thank you for being apart of our special moment!

  • Making it Easy!! I was very nervous about finding a place that would be honest about their products. When I contacted DWD I told them what I wanted and they told me they would get me a price. Their price was so much cheaper than any other jeweler. When we had an appointment they explained everything about quality, color, clarity, and answered any other questions I had. They very professional and honest. When I got the engagement ring is was flawless. I was extremely happy with it. When my lady seen it she feel in love. DWD goes above and beyond for his clients. I would recommend them for any jewelry needs. J.W.
  • Forget the Mall. This is the place you want to go to make your wedding experience special. They are the nicest people you will ever meet. DWD genuinely cares about their customers and their diamonds. I recommend Desert Wholesale Diamond to anyone considering getting the most beautiful diamond ring with the best customer service. By the way, I rarely add comments in YELP, but I had to this time to let everyone know of this jewel in the desert.
