Re: Radiant Diamond HELP! Fish eye or Bowtie?

Actually, this one doesn't even need an ASET to discover the poor cut, because its exceptionally-shallow crown is obvious, even though the diamond is dirty in the low resolution pic.

Our nurse says she tested negative twice so she doesn't have Ebola and shouldn't be in quarantine. Someone needs to tell her that if she IS carrying Ebola the blood test can't even find it this early in her 21-day incubation period. If she is carrying the virus her blood test results will change fro...

Get a refund, lower your stone standards, or rob a bank. ;) Don't feel bad. PS has a zillion examples of people who a-s-s-u-m-e-d things or didn't do adequate homework before their purchase.

Re: Disagreement with a Pricescope vendor about stones

Verifying they really are the above means a report from AGL for each tiny stone .. again astronomically-expensive, if AGL even grades such small stones.

Re: Disagreement with a Pricescope vendor about stones

I'm glad you told the vendor about this thread. That dramatically increases the odds of you getting what was agreed to even though the value of mined and untreated rubies is many times the value of those likely-treated sapphires.

Re: Disagreement with a Pricescope vendor about stones

I think I know who this vendor is.
Please do searches on how this vendor treats clients when things go sour.

Knowing more about his history may change how you interact with him ... which may increase the odds of achieving your desired outcome.

If my guess is wrong. then it's wrong. :shhh:

Re: Disagreement with a Pricescope vendor about stones

Here's my understanding, please correct me if wrong.

Ruby and sapphire are the same material, corundum.
Corundum of only one color, red, is called ruby.

Those stones are not red.
They are pink.
Thus they are not rubies.
