Treasure Chest Diamonds are the pride and passion of Michaels Jewelers, but what exactly makes a Treasure Chest Diamond so unique and special? For those who have done a little research on diamond buying, you will know that cut determines 60% of the value of the diamond and 100% of the sparkle. Michaels Jewelers strives for excellence and wanted to represent a collection that was as perfect as one could achieve.
So in 1948, Michaels Jewelers introduced "Treasure Chest” diamonds with the assurance that they would always represent the finest cut diamonds in the world and have superior light performance when compared to any other diamonds. It begins with our exclusive relationship with the best cutters in the world that cut from only 1% of the finest diamonds they receive.
Michaels provided the customer further peace of mind by guaranteeing the grading on all of its diamonds. This includes color, clarity, and cut. This guarantee now extends to the value proposition with Michaels 120% price guarantee on all Treasure Chest Diamonds.
Today, Michaels offers a variety of Treasure Chest Diamonds:
