ADCO Diamond is a name synonymous with diamond trading. Meline and Norair Arslanian (the “A” in ADCO) founded the business in 1980 as diamond wholesalers. Back then many of the diamonds were supplied by extended family members in Europe and Africa, who themselves had already been in the diamond mining and polishing business for decades. Diamonds, as they say, is in this family’s genes.


The next generation of Arslanians (Aline and Rina) were studying biology and graphic design respectively at Boston University when they too were drawn ineluctably to diamonds. After graduating from BU, they both enrolled at the Gemological Institute of America in Santa Monica, California before joining the family business. Combining backgrounds in science and art, Aline and Rina speak with authority and creativity on all aspects of jewelry creation.



With Aline and Rina onboard, ADCO’s wholesale business evolved into the retail business it is today. Still operating as a family business, ADCO has established itself as a reputable retailer in Boston that has exponentially grown its clientele. Beyond specializing in loose diamonds for engagement rings, wedding bands, and all other precious gems, ADCO has branched out into custom jewelry design. ADCO now serves many private clients with personal showings. Read less

I cannot thank Aline and Rina at ADCO Diamond enough for their tremendous help in selecting my wife's engagement ring and our wedding bands. After visiting countless jewelers in Boston and Washington, DC (and trips to NYC's diamond district), I am so grateful to have come across ADCO Diamond because their service, selection and value were beyond anything I had encountered. From the start, Aline took the time to educate me about diamonds and what to look for when selecting the right one. Like any man preparing to purchase a ring for his significant other, the process can be daunting -- yet, Aline and Rina helped provide guidance and suggestions as we worked to find my now wife her dream ring. I was so pleased with ADCO Diamond, that I flew back to Boston just to work with them again to select our wedding bands. I highly recommend ADCO Diamond and would encourage anyone that might be thinking of purchasing an engagement ring or other special gift to visit Aline and Rina.

Aileen is so patient and knowledgeable to work with, my family has been going to her for years. She's honest and fair, and I am so happy to have my rings be from Adco!

My husband bought my engagement ring here and we went back for our wedding bands. First of all, the engagement ring is beautiful, and my husband felt he had a great experience here (they spent a lot of time teaching him about diamonds, how to choose them, which of the 5 Cs is most and least important, etc). The ring was appraised at significantly more than he paid for it (although I understand this commonly happens, it's definitely a good sign). When we went back to choose our wedding bands, Rina was very helpful. I wanted a band that would fit flush with my engagement ring, with small stones. Rina only had one example in the store, so she ordered several others, so that I could get a sense of how big I wanted the stones to be. The ring ended up looking perfect. We also ordered my husband's wedding band here. When the rings came in, they ended up being less than we had been quoted. Overall very happy.

My husband did a great job picking out a beautiful & great quality diamond, a unique setting that completely fits me, and he said that ADCO, in particular Aileen, made the process painless and easy. After the engagement, ADCO was great with sizing, giving me the same diamond education & viewing of stones that they gave my husband because I was curious and a tad jealous of his shopping experience :) It was fun to compare a high quality stone with one that had all sorts of imperfections. I'm so grateful that my husband went to this jeweler and not some store in the mall. A good friend of his recommended them. I have since recommended them to a friend who said of the 3 jewelry stores they visited, ADCO was the best experience and the only one who the person behind the counter has graduated from the Gemological Institute of America. I get compliments every week and in fact yesterday, a patient of mine who is retired jeweler inspected the ring and was very impressed. He said my husband had done well and confirmed that ADCO has a great reputation in the diamond/jewelry business. .

My fiance had my engagement ring custom-made here. They worked with him (totally unbeknownst to me, of course) as they figured out *everything*. And when the proposal date got moved up 3 weeks, they were willing to put the pedal to the metal and rush-finish the ring (of course at a price, but the fact that they were willing to log in the hours for such a huge request is impressive!)

The nicest is that, whenever we come in, the ladies are always so thrilled to see us. I know that's part of the business, but it's nice, especially in downtown Boston, where it's easy to be detached from everyone.

ADCO was SO wonderful to work with. We've since recommended two other guy friends of ours to get their engagement rings here -- and they have tooi!! The two sisters we worked with were very helpful, patient and not pushy, had a great eye for what would look good now and down the road -- and my husband loved that their diamonds had been through the Kimberly process + were conflict-free. I LOVE my wedding + engagement rings and have gotten a ton of compliments on their unique design, brilliance... friends literally have seen my (3 small-carat-size diamond bands!) from across a city street. :D

I got my engagment ring here. Small, family owned business. We had a small budget and the diamond eternity ring I got from them is amazing and so unique! Other jewelers scoffed at me when I told them my budget and showed me practically nothing, but within 5 minutes, Adco helped me find my beautiful ring! Will definitely be back for future purchases!
