People come from all over central Illinois to buy their diamonds from AB Lauer Jewelers, and here’s why. We own and operate a small diamond store with the main focus on your needs, not sales goals or commissions. There’s no “big box” or “big jewelry store” feel here. You can work one-on-one with Judy or Brian to select the perfect diamond for you and your budget. We will educate you on how to buy the biggest and best diamond you can afford.
Diamond forms under high temperature and pressure conditions that exist only about 100 miles beneath the earth’s surface. Diamond’s carbon atoms are bonded in essentially the same way in all directions. Another mineral, graphite, also contains only carbon, but its formation process and crystal structure are very different. Graphite is so soft that you can write with it, while diamond is so hard that you can only scratch it with another diamond.
