The first few months of the year are a popular time to find the perfect ring for your someone special. At CMI we strive to make choosing the perfect ring an easy and fun experience. Our educated staff, quality assurance, onsite service and much, much more will be sure to keep you from leaving disappointed. We will help you to find the best diamond at the best value, and have hundreds of loose diamonds to choose from, in many shapes and sizes. All of our diamonds are carefully selected, and our large volume of inventory allows you to get the best price possible for a quality stone.



Available in every color except for blue, this month’s birthstone is Garnet! Garnets offer enough variety in appearance to appeal to every taste, as well as an outstanding price range to suit every pocketbook. It reportedly gives its wearer guidance in the night, protection from nightmares, and according to the Egyptians, is an antidote for snake bite and food poisoning. Start the new year on a right track by adding this remarkable gem to your collection!
