(CDE) is a full-service, fine jewelry retailer specializing in loose diamonds, engagement/bridal, estate jewelry, pearls, colored gemstones, custom design, watches, repairs, appraisals and corporate gifts.
CDE is a first generation, family owned jewelry store; which has been ranked in the top 5% of specialty, independent jewelers in the US. Our most important asset is our reputation and our customers are the focus of our genuine care. We are conveniently located right outside Atlanta, in Smyrna Georgia, near the new Braves stadium.
CDE opened in 1982 as a loose diamond and engagement ring specialist, in a rented showroom with two employees. With each new lease (all within the same shopping center), the storefront, staff and inventory grew. A staple of Cobb County, CDE purchased its current building in 1999. In 2014, this location went under a renovation and expanded to over 4800 square feet. The showroom exemplifies Southern hospitality, where the warmth of welcome and sparkle of exceptional value have created a network of over 50,000 clients and friends.
In August 2016, CDE received the coveted "Jeweler of the Year" award for the Southeastern United States. The 24Karat Club picks one store each year from a multitude of extremely qualified nominees. CDE was chosen for our dedication and love of the jewelry industry, and our commitment to civic duties above and beyond our service as retail jewelry store owners.
Cumberland Diamond Exchange’s involvement in the community and partnerships with non-profits are key differentiators. Their “Cufflinks + Charms 4 Charity” makes custom-designed jewelry for resale and recognition with proceeds benefiting the corresponding charity. In addition to their charitable outreach, Mark and Rhonda are very involved in the community. Their dedication to the community has earned CDE the following awards: 2015 Cobb Chamber Small Business of the Year, Dedicated Community Service Award from SafePath Children's Advocacy Center, The Sam Olens Business Community Service Award, and more. In addition, Rhonda Jacobson was honored at the YWCA Women of Achievement, Tribute recipient.
