Diamond Expert
Diamonds Direct Richmond


Gary Tremayne Wakefield, Diamond Expert, started at Diamonds Direct Short Pump in August of 2015. He has over two decades of experience in assisting Richmonders with choosing the perfect clothing and jewelry to celebrate their most special occasions. The community has enjoyed his trustworthy guidance in apparel and jewelry at various retailers like Merry-Go-Round, Sea Dream Leather, and Sterling Jewelers. Now, with Diamonds Direct, he is poised to help you achieve your jewelry dreams in a way no one else can!

Shortly after being born in Birmingham, Alabama, his family relocated to Virginia for his father's military service. After that was completed, the family relocated to Richmond where Wakefield attended school in the localities of Richmond and Chesterfield. Soon thereafter, he found himself in retail and loving it! The passion he has for helping people enjoy the experience we all call "life" has driven him ever since.

Wakefield enjoys being active with his faith, traveling the world (he says "new experiences open the mind."), technology, sports, craft beers, and most especially spending time with his lovely wife, Charise.
