    GoldenBird moissanite

    I’m am so impressed with Diamondrensu’s setting work. I louped it and his milgrain is amazing. It’s just perfect under the loupe which I didn’t expect. I’m definitely getting him to do another project after Christmas but will definitely ask for colorless.

    Advice needed on cloudy diamond...

    Forgive me. I skimmed to find the questions for me. Why? Bc the jeweler is not wiling to make her happy. That simple. I deal with many jewelers and they all have one thing in common. They realize that jewelry is a luxury and should only bring me smiles. And that I don’t need it. No one does...

    GoldenBird moissanite

    Stone looks pretty but seems slightly yellow. Did you upgrade to DEF Colorless? If you did, could just be the reflections. About the setting, you can ask them to attempt to copy the one you like and they will put in a good effort. However, their ability may be limited, so do moderate your...

    Warranty Worth It?

    Well her whole thing was basically trying to say look these both are certified by GIA at the same specs but ours is much better as we get to choose the top diamonds and then we do our own checks on it to make sure it is a better diamond. I did not really like the whole speech thing but it's...

    Analysis Paralysis

    Whoops, sorry I didn't mean to say that I question your trustworthiness level; your posts and others online helped steer me toward Brian Gavin to begin with. I'm just pointing out that a novice starting a fresh diamond/ring search knows nothing about the history or reputation of online vendors...

    Brick and Motar Jeweler versus Online (still confused)

    The easiest way to confirm if you got the correct diamond back is to have a copy your GIA/AGS certificate with the inclusions plot and GIA/AGS inscription numbers. When you get your stone back, you simply take to a jeweler with a microscope and confirm the numbers match, and that the inclusions...

    Do you ever have to check your reactions around jewelers?

    I've been visiting local small jewelers in the last couple weeks, seeing who has nice estate jewelry. Yesterday, I found my new Favorite Shop Ever: gorgeous estate jewelry (at very fair prices!) alongside some of the jeweler's own designs. The SA was personable and engaging, and he took tons of...

    Worried About James Allen Purchase

    Well, I'm baffled as to why you're ready to start posting excoriating comments "on all the online review sites" since * unlike the con artist touts in the Diamond District who pose as wholesalers in order to lure the naive and uninformed into thinking a uniquely awesome deal is to be had, James...

    Need your advice on this Pear

    OK, I found this post of Gypsy's, which may or may not be applicable to you. Were you thinking of buying a "stock" setting from the available inventory at a B&M, or having a setting custom-made for your diamond? The post below is about the pitfalls of choosing a vendor for a custom-made ring...

    Light leakage, how can you tell in real life?

    RandG, I can understand how you might get those impressions. However, the growth of the use of ASET and other diagnostic tools has been organic within this community. It is true that diamonds are generally not dissected in the broader jewelry community the way they are here. To a great extent...

    Really confused on how it all works (buying diamonds online)

    Hey everyone, very new to the site. I'll try to spill all the beans very succinctly here. I've got a few months to get my girlfriend an engagement ring. My out the door budget is $5,000. Would love to only spend around $4,000. We're saving for a house, I'm about to have LASIK done in two days...

    Custom design woes on ring

    Yes, Yelpers will rate, but they can only be taken seriously about the customer service. They don't know squat about jewelry or the jewelry making process.

    Retail jeweller lying?

    Luckily not all jewelry stores are like this. I did find one B&M who always lets me play around and I went in there with my kids, while waiting for a movie to start, and the gal knew I as just window shooping and offered to clean my ring and just chatted with us. Good attitudes like this pay...

    Retail jeweller lying?

    I have a similar local estate jeweler that I adore - I got my studs set there (and for half the price of any other store I'd talked to!), and their sales staff is wonderful. Not only that, but they a) know their inventory backwards and forwards and b) love educated consumers. I point anybody and...

    Refund? Layaway item on hold

    About two weeks ago I stopped by a B&M jewelry store since I was on the market for an engagement ring. I knew very little about diamonds and just wanted to get educated. I've seen commercials for the store and they seemed trustworthy. Well I went in and got the short education and was shown...

    Retail jeweller lying?

    Yes, if you find a jeweler who actually enjoys their profession, it's their passion, they seem quite happy to chat and share info. I've visited a shop here that is FARRRR too expensive, but they are happy to share their love of fancy colored diamonds. They know I'd never purchase from them...
