Ira Weissman

Founder

Ira created the website back in the summer of 2009. Originally, the site was called TruthAboutDiamonds.com (the name change happened in early 2014). Ira and Mike worked together at Leo Schachter diamonds, traveling all over the US selling diamonds – often together.

At Leo Schachter, Ira’s specialty was small round diamonds (generally under 0.70ct). Since 2014, Ira has taken a step back as Michael has taken over management at The Diamond Pro. Read full bio here.
