A well respected vendor, from whom I have purchased before, offered me a 0.50 (6.97 x 4.43 x 2.42) carat fancy pure pink VS2 GIA certified pear shaped stone for $5,000.00. I did some comparison shopping and a 0.47 (6.61x4.45x2.77) carat fancy pink SI1 is listed with another respected vendor for $25,000.00. Is my vendor offering up a great deal or is the other vendor grossly overpriced? The stones appear similar in color saturation. The stone in question has just one inclusion on the map, which is a cavity. No flouresence or other comments on the certificate. I have attached a picture of the stone. Please let me know your thoughts.
