The ADX family is comprised of a group of talented and passionate individuals who have an extensive knowledge of the diamond industry, a varying range of skill sets, diversity, and who continuously crave knowledge so that they can continue to be some of the best in the fine jewelry and diamond industries. We are proudly recognized and accredited by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).

An Idea Was Born

ADX doesn't have a century-old timeline or a history of generations of diamond traders, diamond cutters and jewelers.

What we do have is an incredible passion for diamonds and jewelry not to mention personalized service no matter where you live in the world. We are a first generation jeweler that transcends all generations and all borders - our goal is to make the diamond business more transparent and more ethical.

This vision of what ADX is today was inspired by ADX founder and President, Darren Martin. After over 30 years of working in the diamond retail industry with some of North America's largest jewelry chains, Darren saw the need to educate clients about the diamond industry and give them the tools to make an informed decision before purchasing a diamond.

As a result, ADX was established and Darren's quest for a transparent diamond purchasing experience was realized when the doors of ADX swung open in 1999.

Since its inception, ADX has grown to be a world-recognized, trusted and respected jeweler.

ADX operates on a very different business model than most jewelers. We have no storefront retail shops, no sales closing pressure and we promote our "Knowledge is Power" philosophy so that you know that you are selecting the right diamond for your style and budget. On the initial visit, we offer a one-hour complimentary diamond lesson and custom ring design consultation.

Extraordinary jewelry delivered by passionate people

ADX is a different kind of jeweller and we're changing the way that people are choosing diamonds.

Our mission is to offer a transparent, ethical and personalized diamond and jewelry experience.

We pride ourselves in listening to and delivering on our clients' needs and ensuring that our clients have the education and the information that they need to make an informed diamond purchase.

Our passion is to create unique beloved jewelry using only high quality diamonds, quality craftsmanship and quality service.

The way that we do business is a real game changer in an industry that traditionally has operated under a very different business model. We believe in taking the mystery out of diamond shopping by offering you the knowledge and confidence to understand the inner workings of the diamond industry.

We give you our promise that we will exceed your expectations by giving you tools to make an informed decision before your purchase. No outrageous mark-ups, no up-selling and no pressure.
