Billions of years ago, natural diamonds were formed deep beneath the earth’s crust under extreme heat and pressure. Through volcanic activity, they traveled to the surface, ascending hundreds of miles of molten rock. Many variables need to align for a natural diamond to form, making them one of the most precious gemstones in the world. They’re also some of the oldest items you could ever possibly own.
Diamonds at Mountz
Every single diamond that comes through our doors is thoroughly inspected by our certified gemologists. That way, we make certain that our customers receive a premier quality that’s second-to-none. During this process, we also reject diamonds that don’t meet our standards. This number ends up being a lot higher than the diamonds that are accepted by our team. Even after this rigorous analysis, Mountz Jewelers carries the largest selection of diamonds in central Pennsylvania. When you walk through our doors, you’ll have confidence knowing that you’re receiving the best-of-the-best.
The 4 C’s
Diamonds are the most valuable of all gemstones because of their rarity. Not all diamonds are equal so the Gemological Institute of America created a diamond grading system to objectively evaluate diamonds based on the four C's: Carat, Color, Clarity, and Cut.
