With Christmas rapidly approaching we have been incredibly busy. Every year at this time Tom, Donna and staff are spending their time meeting with gem dealers and designers and pouring over catalogs to select the most unique jewelry items you will find in the area. This year, our collection will include the hottest new styles including the Meira T designer line that was featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition as well as the black and white diamond line from Indostar.

We will also have a great selection of the classics including diamond rings, bracelets and earrings as well as colored gemstone jewelry. We have white gold and yellow gold necklaces, earrings and bracelets. This year we have more to choose from than ever before. In addition to our expanded selection of jewelry items we are always prepared to search for or design and create that special piece of jewelry you may not see in our showcases.

The majority of our business is made up of Bridal and Anniversary jewelry. If you are looking for a new diamond engagement ring, or to upgrade your original, we offer you the best possible way to shop. Tom and Donna are both Graduate Gemologists of the GIA and the only two to hold that degree in Manatee County. To discuss what you are looking for in a diamond you can meet with Tom or Donna in the privacy of our Diamond Room. During the meeting they will answer any questions you may have about diamonds or jewelry honestly and accurately. After determining what you are looking for, we can have a selection of diamonds brought in to choose from. Of course, there is no obligation to buy and in this procedure you are assured to be educated and informed so that if you do pick a diamond, you can be confident it is what you really want. Because of our knowledge of the market and our low overhead, our prices are always the best in the area. We encourage our clients to compare prices. After you have, you will see that Suncoast Gem Lab is the best place to look for diamonds. Give us a call with any questions or just stop by.

During the busy season until Christmas, to better serve our clients we will be open on Saturdays from 10:00 am until 2:00 PM and will stay late for appointments when needed. Give us a call if you can’t make it before 5:30 PM weekdays and we will be happy to meet with you early or late. Happy Holidays!
