Look Them Over Carefully
Diamonds that bear Close Inspection
I Two things are very important in buying Diamonds
Quality and the Price. Good Quality is tho element mostly
admired in a Diamond, while the Right Price assure you that
It will always be worth as much or more than you paid for it
You will be sure of both if you buy it here.
"Quality Diamonds are
a Safe Investment
J The records prove conclusively that Diamonds have never
depreciated in value durlns any panic or off yer, while the price
has more than doubled in the space of a few years.
J We are advised through our importers, that conditions are
favorable to a further rite In prices very shortly. Better invest
your money now while prices are still reasonable,
