A Souvenir to Truly Remember

Posted on October 25th, 2013 by Goldman Buyer

It’s tradition to bring home a souvenir from vacations, whether it be a magnet, a key chain, or…a 3.85-carat diamond?

A 14-year-old girl from Oklahoma was digging with her family at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Oklahoma when she saw something interesting. Upon closer observation, she realized it was a canary diamond about the size of a jellybean.

More than 75,000 diamonds have been found at the park since 1906, making its name well-deserved. One was the largest diamond ever found in the United States – a whopping 40.23-carat gem. Visitors at the park are allowed to keep what they find.

The girl says depending on how much the diamond is worth she will either make it into a ring, or use it to pay for college. Which begs the question, what would you do if you had found it?

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
