General Info

Unfortunately for the consumer, many agencies issue diamond certificates. These agencies have developed their own grading scales that over-estimate the qualities of the stone and serve to bias the purchase price in favor of the in-house jeweler. How do you avoid this trap? By using an INDEPENDENT gem laboratory. At Barker Diamond we prefer, above all, certificates issued by the Gemological Institute of America ( GIA ) and the American Gem Societies Laboratories ( AGSL ). These two laboratories are known for having the most strict, consistent and unbiased systems for grading diamonds. Diamonds that are accompanied by grading reports ( certificates ) from these laboratories are the most highly valued in the industry, as their quality is considered guaranteed. GIA is renowned for its impartial service as the world's foremost authority in gemology. The Institute's history of ground-breaking scientific research, education and gemological laboratory services has earned GIA its position as the most respected grading and identification authority in the world. GIA has combined the principles of research, education and service to help gem and jewelry professionals around the world use science and product knowledge to sustain the public's trust. AGSL is a not-for-profit trade association whose mission is "a dedication to proven ethics, gemological knowledge, and consumer protection." Member firms must meet strict criteria and be committed to truth in advertising and pricing and accurately representing all products and services to their customers. However, a diamond does not have to be certified to be beautiful. We also have available a wide selection of exquisite uncertified diamonds that will often be entirely suitable and save you money.

  • Great Experience!

    Having a dreadful experience with the over advertised BIG jeweler here in Nashville, my fiance and I went to Barker Diamond to see if we could mend our unfortunate situation. Randy and his wife, Lorraine, gave us nothing less than a perfect experience. I was able to customize my dream ring and hand pick from an array of beautiful diamonds after being throughly educated on the whole ring making process by Randy. I now know my 4 C's! He was also able to work within our price range, and I can definitely say we got more bang, or should I say bling, for our buck!

  • Great Customer Service, and happy with outcome

    I went here because I was dissatisfied with the customer service and lack of professionalism of cheaper Jewelers (i.e. Genesis). Barker Diamond and J. Yontef were considered the best two jewelers and I can see why. I chose to go with Barker simply because I had a hard time getting in touch with J. Yontef. I was pleased with the customer service and Randy, the owner, really listened to my description of what my girlfiend liked and stayed close to my price range. He was willing to work with me on the financing of the ring, and besides one small issue, I was overall very pleased. I would say save yourself the trouble and stick with Barker Diamond or check out J. Yontef. Don't waste your time or money at other Nashville places. My fiance says her ring is absolutely unique and perfect, exactly what she wanted. Barker is willing to meet you at a time that is convenient for you.
