If you need your diamond repaired, the best diamond cutter is Alex Franckel, my father. Of course, I’m biased! At www.BestDiamondCutter.com you can also see some interesting diamonds including the 14th largest diamond in the world and a diamond that glows in the dark.

Best LED 12V Landscape Lights

The best LED landscape lights provide light more beautiful than traditional 12V lighting and are so energy efficient that you won’t even notice the electricity usage on your electric bill!

The lights at the front of my house are all 3W 12V LED bullet lights by Aquascape

The Best LED Landscape Lights

Depending upon the amount of light needed and your budget, the best LED landscape lights I found are Aquascape and DG LIGHTS. Both Aquascape and DG LIGHTS are really well made of solid brass. DG LIGHTS use a little more power, provide more light and are more expensive. I purchased Aquascape lights from Richard at ThePondOutlet.com which has both the best price and service by far.  I purchased just over 36 1W LED bullet lights; 3 1W LED Waterfall lights; 11 3W LED bullet lights & 3 6W LED bullet lights by Aquascape for the front and back yard.

The lights are extremely easy to install because they come with 25′ leads with watertight plugs. I paid my sprinkler company to dig the trenches and bury the 12v line. I then connected 3-way splitters also available from ThePondOutlet.com (at the bottom of the page) and plugged the lights in.  I connected the 3-way splitters to the 12v runs with Blazing Pro Series BVS Waterproof Landscape Wire Connectors (simply strip the end of the wire, insert and close the clip) made for and available at Kichler.  I also found them at Amazon.com (designed and built like jewelry you’d see at Tiffany, they’re pricey, but the only choice for the job-not only easy but waterproof with solid connections that won’t let the wires pull out).

My two waterfalls (15′ & 25′) are running (all lights here are 1W LED except two 3W lights on the Weeping Pine hanging over the waterfalls)
The waterfall pumps are 1,000 W each but my lights are only 1 W!
