Located in West Broad Village, our showroom is just a short drive from downtown Richmond. In such a historical city, it’s only natural you’d want to make your own history with the one you love. Our diamond experts are always here to help with any occasion you’re shopping for.
Also...I want to add that all of Diamonds Direct's diamonds originate from a conflict free source! I know how important that is to many of us, so when you are shopping for a diamond, you know where to go!
From their chief smasher Nicole:
"Everyone has stress in their lives. Anxiety, worries, things that make them tick, or just things that they need to let go of for a bit. Sometimes people just need to be able to let it out, de-stress, take the load off! The rage room will give them that space to go, to release some of whatever is pent up in there.
Even if you’re just looking to have some fun and hear the sound of something breaking, or just to be able to throw a plate against the wall, this is the place to come!
And who am I kidding? Whether you’re coming in to relieve stress or coming in for the hell of it, it’s ALL going to be fun! Don’t believe me? Come try for yourself, I guarantee you’ll be glad you did!"
If you dont know what @shieldnsheath is, then get ready for some awesomeness! This is a place where you and some friends can gather, get some food and beverages, and then THROW STUFF! Axes, ninja stars...even freaking BATARANGS!!
Even better, its a woman owned business! And whats cool is that her husband is a world ranked thrower who will soon be appearing on The History Channel's new show Mountain Men: Ultimate Marksman. How awesome is it that we have a place like this in Scott's Addition?

Inspired by the vital role that coffee plays in helping firefighters stay alert and energized through long shifts, Fire Dept. Coffee was founded in 2016. Founder and CEO Luke Schneider is a retired firefighter/paramedic and a U.S. Navy veteran who teamed up with firefighter/paramedic Jason Patton who is also a full-time firefighter and VP for Fire Department Coffee.
Fire Department Coffee is run by active and retired firefighters, including our operations officer and chief coffee roaster.
Along with providing a growing selection of incredible coffee — including our proprietary Spirit Infused Coffee since 2016 — Fire Dept. Coffee also supports our fellow first responders in need through the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation by giving back to those who have been injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges.
