We have the same eye for stones

When I call for diamonds from Shannon, she knows how fussy I am, especially because I'm a stonecutter. She knows, after all these years—we have the same eye for stones. I have to over-qualify my custom-order pieces to ensure I don't get stuck with the bill.

Their selection is unbelievable

Rio bends over backwards to find what I ask of them. It was so nice to find a place that was respectful to us. I cannot tell you in words how professional Chris and Shannon are. Their selection is unbelievable—the service and the supply and the resources at Rio are just phenomenal. Anyone looking for a diamond anywhere in the country should go to you, in my opinion. You're not going to find a better total package anywhere else. I can't tell you how happy I am. Trust, intelligence and honesty all come together to make it a pleasant experience.
