It offers diamonds with specified characteristics in the areas of shape, cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.

The finished jewelry is delivered to the customer generally within three to seven business days from the order date and within one business day for Signature diamonds. The Companys primary competition comes from independent jewelry stores; retail jewelry store chains, such as Tiffany & Co.; online retailers that sell jewelry and online jewelry retailers, such as Amazon.com, James Allen, and Brilliant Earth; department stores, chain stores and mass retailers, such as Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus; online auction sites, such as eBay; catalog and television shopping retailers, such as HSN and QVC; discount superstores and wholesale clubs, such as Wal-Mart and Costco Wholesale; and internet shopping clubs, such as Gilt Groupe and Rue La La.
