Well, I vote for sticking with WF. I think in the long run, you get what you pay for, and I still want excellent quality in any diamonds I buy. I bought uncertified diamond earrings once, and I took a loss to get rid of them, and then I got my great stones from WF. No regrets here...(other than buying the uncerted ones to begin with).

Thanks for the thoughts. I so greatly appreciate it. I'll ask IDJ for quotes on certified stones. Then I should have all the information I need to make a decision at that point on IDJ vs WF. Stay tuned!

Just a quick update...it's been about 4 weeks since I had WF proceed with the repairs. The timing estimate I had for repairs plus regrading was 4 weeks. So, I emailed to inquire about whether they would be ready. Unfortunately, the repairs have not even begun :(. So, it's a minimum of another 4 weeks. The repairs are not being done at WF, so I understand they cannot control timing. I wish I would have known, however, as I had been expecting to wear them this weekend. In fact, the whole reason for upgrading in the first place was to wear this weekend at an event, so I'm a bit disappointed. :cry: Hopefully I'll have a more positive update with progress soon!

Yikes! I'm sorry - how annoying, and how annoying that you weren't updated!
I'd call your rep and have a chat re. how often they should update you so that you are comfortable knowing what's going on. I wouldn't be happy with being left in the dark for a month, but my rep knows she can expect to hear from me every couple of weeks regarding ongoing projects..

That's very disappointing! I too am waiting on earrings and I'm being terribly impatient. It sounds as though you thought about your plan months in advance, I can't believe that there hasn't been enough time to get them completed. Do you have any idea when they will be on their way to you?

After a few months of waiting, I finally have my upgraded earrings! While it was a long and painful journey, I'm pleased to have them back on my ears.

I'd like to update in my avatar...anyone know how to update?
