About Us

Exclusive Diamonds By Carter is located in the Gaslamp District, the heart of downtown San Diego, on Sixth Avenue. It is a family-owned and operated business that was started in the 1950s by Jack Carter. Our store has long held onto a tradition of being an honest, tell it as it is, jewelry store. One of the many qualities of Exclusive Diamonds is that we cater to our clients by working with them one on one, it’s like having a family member in the business. We take pride in everything we do and stand behind our creations. From custom CAD cam design to hand carved waxes, we pride ourselves in giving the client the style of their dreams. From our wide range of loose diamonds, you can select from GIA, EGL, or other non-certified stones that have been inspected by our experts. In addition, we also offer a fine selection of colored stones. Our master jewelers are the best, whether your choice is yellow gold, white gold, or platinum; we work in all karats and will bring your design to life with the assurance your creation will outshine your greatest expectation.


Exclusive Diamonds stands behind the quality of all its pieces. Should you find that your piece fails to live up to your expectations, we offer a two week full refund. Additionally every time you stop by our store, we will inspect and clean your items at no extra charge for as often as you like. If any accidental damage or wear is found during the inspection, repairs will be recommended and can be completed for a nominal fee.
