    Michael has Secret Shopped thousands of stores around the world to provide the most accurate information and ensure consumers can zero in on the best possible choice for their needs.
    They only work with the most reputable diamond dealers including leading online diamond companies James Allen, Blue Nile, and over 100,000 diamonds have been bought through Diamond Pro to date.
