  • Jessop’s Knows Sparkle!

    Posted on: October 23, 2012

    San Diego, from nearby Little Italy to far off Fallbrook, relies on Jessop’s for Ideal cut diamonds. And the best of that brilliant bunch earn the AGS Light Performance Document grade of 0. Three Certified Gemologists, graduates of both the GIA and the AGS programs are in the store to help you navigate the fine points of diamond buying.
    The best tool in our tool bag to demonstrate diamond brilliance is the ASET device created by the American gem Society lab. When a diamond is viewed in the ASET the brightest light being produced by the diamond shows up as red, next brightest is green, and contrast shows as blue. Light leaking out shows in the ASET as white, grey or black. Black and white is ok for old movies but not ok in a fine diamond!

  • Jessop’s fans in San Diego have chimed in plenty over the last 6 weeks with answers to our ‘Around Town with the Clock’ contest. We wish we had a vintage diamond pin to give to everyone who entered, especially the faithful who guessed with each photo clue. Kudos to all who know our city so well – many of you were right on with your local guesses, even the tough ones!

    The winner of the drawing is Mr. William Oakes, a longtime resident of Point Loma. We suspect his wife is going to sparkle a bit brighter as a result of her husband’s contest entry. Congratulations Mr. Oakes on winning the beautiful vintage pin! And a big ‘thank you’ to all who entered and to all of you who have let us know how much you cherish the majestic Jessop clock.
