Appraisal Question - GIA Cert. Needed??

My fiance went by the local jeweler yesterday to get her new engagement ring appraised. They are really nice people and all and my family has dealt with them for years. Anyway, the lady said that they would need the GIA Certificate in order to do the appraisal. Is this normal? Neither she nor I have...

Date: 8/4/2009 12:38:26 PM Author: chamois Great job showing your GF the video. If you do decide to go with the H - you''ll have extra $ to put towards either an extra special setting (maybe with a surprise stone hidden somewhere, if that would appeal to you and your GF), or perhaps for a more lavi...

It''s done and I went with the H. Thank you all for your help. You really have no idea how much I appreciate it. As an extra special bonus, Jonathan is going to make a video of the ring when he gets it in. This has been a great experience and now I just have to wait (which I don''t know if I can do)...

I''m glad she got to see them, and doesn''t have a problem with the H!


Me too. She LOVED them both! She said over and over that she''d be happy with either but when pressed to choose one, she liked the H better.

A couple of questions ... 1) The culet allows light to escape, correct? This doesn't appear to be a problem in the video. Should it be in real life? 2) Is the faint fluorescence a problem? How does this compare to no fluorescence? 3) Which one has better ASET and DiamXray images? 4) How important ar...

So I finally got her to watch it and ... she liked the H. She thought they were both "gorgeous." She thought the G had more "sparkle" to it. However, since it was almost like splitting hairs and she couldn't tell the difference between the two as far as colora and clarity go, she liked the bigger on...

CCL ... I think you mentioned in another thread that the 1.15 showed up a bit yellow in person and appeared closer to an I. Can you please elaborate on this? It''s hard for me to see the color difference in the video - is this something that I might notice in person?

So I finally got to watch the video and ... you guys are right - both are great. I really don''t think I can go wrong with either one. The problem is that I''m a perfectionist and I want the best one for her. She''s so good to me and deserves nothing but the best (for my budget of course!)

Oh I know. I guess I just figured that the size would negate some of that - $1000 is a big difference (20% of the 1.15''s price)

What is the price difference between the two? Is that a factor at all?


Oddly enough, the 1.07 is $1k more expensive.
