If you're looking to get a diamond engagement ring, Motek will save you a ton of money. While looking around, I stumbled upon Motek's website and information. At first I admit I thought it seemed a bit sketch, but I made an appointment (important: no walk-ins, only meeting by appointment) and met with the guys at Motek. Basically, they are wholesalers, and I mean real wholesalers. They supply many of those "wholesalers" you'd find in the WTC. Basically, this is how it works. You set up an appointment to meet with them one-on-one, you walk in, talk a little about what you're looking for, and they bring out some loose diamonds for you to take a look at. They give you pointers and help you understand what you're looking for and what you're buying and why you're buying what you're looking for. One thing that really put me at ease was that there was absolutely no pressure to spend more on a diamond. Actually, I was discouraged from spending more just because I found a diamond under my budget. He said, "Why spend more? You found a great diamond that you like under your budget, save that money, spend it on the engagement dinner!" Seriously, that is rare candor and honesty, which I really appreciated. However, please note that at first the guys might sound like slick sales guys, but really they're trying to make it all a win-win situation. Motek also will get your diamond mounted in whatever ring and setting you like (literally, there are tons of options you can choose from, it took me a while to sort through it all). To save the most money, pay cash. Compared to retail stores that I had visited, I literally saved 40-50% on everything.

A long overdue review. I was browsing yelp a few years back for a diamond jewelry shop within the Dallas World Trade Center / Market center that was reputable in my hunt for an engagement ring. Diamore Diamonds Dallas popped up on my search and after reading a few reviews, I decided to give it a shot. I walked in without an appointment and was taken in by "Kfir." We spoke at length and he treated me great, he showed me some settings and showed me a few samples of loose diamonds of varying cuts and class. It was very educational and after an hour. I felt no pressure at all and walked out of Diamore Diamonds Dallas a slightly more educated man. Half a year passed before I returned to the store, Kfir again greeted me and over the course of the next half a year and a few more visits, we designed a a custom diamond ring that was perfect that was well within my price range. On the day I proposed, we actually popped in to have the ring resized (I'd overestimated my fiancé's size) and Kfir handled that quickly arranging for a jeweler to do it within 30 min. Fast forward a year later, my fiancé and I returned to purchase our wedding bands. Kfir has been along for the ride from engagement to wedding and two buddies I've steered toward Diamore Diamonds Dallas have also been very satisfied. In sum, a great NO pressure environment with staff who strive to build long term customers. Do make an appointment, I lucked out with the walk-in but I've seen it get rather busy.
There is so many great things to say about Oded and his expertise, I could probably fill a whole page. Let me begin by thanking Oded for all of his time and patience. Oded clearly has a knowledge about diamonds that he was more than happy to share with us. I wanted a yellow fancy diamond... This was no easy feat in our local jewelry stores. Everywhere we went we experienced some sort of dishonesty. Oded helped us find the most beautiful VVS2 yellow diamond. The best part of all of this is the value! The price we paid for a 2.44 CT gorgeous halo ring doesn't compare to even one store we checked out. I wish I could post a picture of my ring... Words can't describe how beautiful it is. I would love to provide a reference if needed for anyone who is nervous shopping online. Megan & Cory Jan 2011
