Who is Taste of Playa Title Sponsor?

Diamonds International was established over two decades ago in St Thomas. Today, with more than 125 locations in the Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska, Diamonds International is now one of the largest jewelry retailers in the world. Distinguished by a comfortable shopping atmosphere, outstanding customer service, quality merchandise and duty free prices, Diamonds International has been the connoisseur’s choice for diamonds, tanzanite, luxury jewelry and exquisite timepieces in the Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska.

 

Diamonds International offers a wonderful selection of classic, fashionable and modern fine jewelry from some of the most renowned designers in the world at an unsurpassed value. With customers from around the world, Diamonds International provides the finest jewelry brands to satisfy their wide range of trends, tastes and prices.

 

Diamonds Internationals is not only the largest luxury jewelry purveyor in the Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska but also is the creator of the Crown of Light diamond, which has 90 facets. A conventional round diamond has 57 or 58 facets. The facets are like windows in a house. More windows mean more light. It is for that reason that the Crown of Light diamond sparks in a more spectacular manner. Crown of Light is only available at Diamonds International.

Diamonds International has a great selection of loose diamonds and semi-mount rings. So, when looking for an engagement ring people can create the perfect ring.

Safi Kilima is another brand designed by Diamonds International. It is an exquisite jewelry line featuring one of the rarest gemstones in the world: tanzanite.

Tanzanite is exceptionally brilliant, and is unique among gemstones because not only has a single known source at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa, and its supply is finite but, also for its multi-dimensional color. In gemological terms, tanzanite is trichroic, which means that when brought out of the earth, its crystals radiate three different colors from each of its crystallographic axes: blue, violet and burgundy. Once cut and polished, tanzanite ranges from electric violets and pale blues to deep royals and rich indigos. There is a wide and varied range of hues, from flattering light blues and lilacs to deep, dark blues and violets. Larger stones tend to exhibit the most intense colors and the most brilliance and fire, and the darker colors typically command the highest prices. Matching pairs are greatly sought after due to the rarity of finding two stones of identical color.

Safi Kilima is an extremely affordable collection with prices starting at $200 usd. In addition, with any purchase of Safi Kilima jewelry piece you will receive a free Omega necklace and tanzanite pendant

PROMOTIONS

At Diamonds International, you will find something for every taste and budget. Diamonds International also offers different payment plans including layaway.

We have promotions all year around. For example, with any purchase of Safi Kilima jewelry piece you will receive a free Omega necklace and tanzanite pendant and with any purchase of a beautiful jewelry piece from the Gift collection you will receive a free heart necklace.

Treat yourself. Visit one of our three showrooms in Playa located along the 5th Avenue. Our sales associates will be pleased to help you.
