    Why is Brand information on some Diamond Certificates but not others?

    This is an important topic. A few points that might shed additional light: First, I agree with those who say that an inscription on a diamond that is not mentioned on a lab report is technically a mismatch and should therefore be of concern to any consumer. There are benign explanations for...

    Curious how diamond vendors keep all of the diamonds straight and delivered?

    Let me just say that I am extremely grateful to the people who developed diamond laser inscription technology! :D Our operation is unique in several respects. We have ongoing manufacturing arrangements and we buy and stock a large number of diamonds. The diamonds go from our manufactures to...

    WARNING! Enchanted Diamonds Scam! Buyers Beware!

    In response to queries/comments posed by @Rockdiamond @Bron357 and @Hiyunglee8 : Re: Libertas Funding LLC v. Online Diamonds International & Joshua Niamehr, Nassau County Supreme Court Index No. 0608770/2019 Were ODI's books "cooked"? Who knows; I don't have enough information to opine whether...

    My 2 carat CBI diamond, set in a custom setting made by Durham Rose Jewellers, UK.

    I want to start this post with gratitude, so much gratitude. I'm not even in possession of my ring yet, because I'm going to pick it up next Wednesday, but I've been sent a video from the workshop and I'm desperate to share it. I also have lots to say about my journey up until now, for anyone...

    Beautiful diamond from USA CERTED DIAMONDS

    Hi PS members, I just wanted to write a review of my dealings with Martin at USA Certed Diamonds. I have just received a stunning oval diamond from him that truly outshines anything that I could have purchased here in Australia! He was friendly and professional and made the process very easy...

    Crown of Light, Diamonds International

    I've seen these. My understanding is they are Diamonds Internationals fancy cut with the extra facets and are cut deeper than the typical MRB. Lots of scathing reviews about them. I would stay away. Quick search on PS found this...

    Curious how diamond vendors keep all of the diamonds straight and delivered?

    @mwilliamanderson I wasn't sure if we'd get replies at first! But we did! I was in meetings all day but kept an eye on this thread - pretty excited to read the replies. @sledge I worked in manufacturing and went through the ISO 9000 certification process. My hat is off to Whiteflash. That is...

    Thoughts on a diamond - SI1 eyeclean?

    A side by side comparison of the E, G & H stones that are your latest contenders. Does one speak good or bad to you? Click to enlarge. While I see nothing wrong with the H, in comparison to the other two stones it seems much more noticeably tinted to me. And for me, an SI2 is more risky...

    Three stone OEC ring, victorian replica OWD/DK

    Really lovely photos Rfisher! The patterning on the whole suite is lovely, especially your center stone, which is bright and colorful. And your setting came out just right! Your persistence paid off. I also echo the others who appreciate your vendor reviews. I do want to say: Don't be so...

    Three stone OEC ring, victorian replica OWD/DK

    Thank you for the kind words! I agree about inclusions making the stone unique. And we are all unique in what we can handle as being 'mind clean' and that's ok. Maybe I've overstepped in saying so much here about it. And placed too much weight on my own choices compared to some others having...

    Please give me your thoughts on this diamond-"Add. clouds not shown"

    Congrats on the new stone! You did very well picking a WF ACA. Not only are they great people to work with, but they have top notch quality diamonds. Period. If you aren't aware, diamonds that make ACA go through a rigorous vetting process. More details can be found here, but I thought...

    Review from Europe - USA Certified Diamonds (Martin Sheffield)

    Since two years we buy our special diamonds with Martin Sheffield. We run an international jewelry business from Amsterdam in The Netherlands. Ofcourse we buy 'regular' diamonds in Amsterdam and Antwerp (Belgium) as well but for all special cut and larger diamonds we prefer Martin Sheffield...

    Question about HCA of pricing.

    GIA triple excellent does not automatically mean that a stone is actually well cut. GIA’s excellent cut grade is too wide for us here at Pricescope. Most diamond cutters will cut stones in such a way so that they reach the first angle combination that meets GIA excellent without needing to...

    Do not buy from Angara.com

    I know that this review will come as no surprise to most people here, but I still think that it may be useful to the less experienced shoppers looking to buy their first gemstone ring. On December 17, I placed an order for a “Vintage Inspired Solitaire Cushion Aquamarine Cocktail Ring” from...

    Help me decide which one!

    None of these are stones we can recommend. The low-crown will show darkness when you look at it at a normal wearer viewing distance. All the others have poor angles and the wearer will find, over time, that the stone looks bad in various lighting. All of them have clouds on the table and...

    What's the deal with diamond prices in India?

    Wow. How would you classify this?? Looks horrible, but it is very cheap. Awesome, great advice.. much appreciated! I've found that a lot of the smaller local jewellery stores that are family run businesses for generations seem to have far higher quality diamonds for better prices that many...

    Engagement ring advice

    1. The images look great. There are some very, very minor imperfections in the heart image at the 1 and 7 o'clock positions. But nothing even close to a problem. If it was an issue, it would have been downgraded from an ACA to Expert Select (ES). You can see similar things on CBI heart...

    Question about HCA of pricing.

    Thank you of your help. I will use your information starting with my survey. Hopefully I will find something within my budget with that spec. Actually now that had pretty much a lot of fancy jewelry store chain from Hong Kong like Luk Fook and Chow Tai Fook. But, I’m believed price will not...

    Help needed for WF stones!

    Tree, I appreciate that feedback. I think others share your opinion and we have had many internal discussions around the topic. There was a time before we had video on our diamond detail page when the only way to showcase the actual beauty of our precision cut diamonds was a static 'glamour...

    Help needed for WF stones!

    I think adding an additional gray background, Segoma Imaging-style video is an excellent idea, and would be a welcome addition to the WF website. Heck, it might even save you and your sales associates some time, as you wouldn't need to respond to so many "Can you take a photo of these 3...

    It's finally my turn! Engagement ring help.

    These are all great finds Sledge. Unfortunately though I think OP only wants a branded stone so that his girl and her family/friends will know it’s a stellar diamond and not just “some internet diamond”. He said it’d be easier for them to know then what a great diamond it was since they won’t...

    It's finally my turn! Engagement ring help.

    I did a quick search on RareCarat using some criteria and kicked back some GIA XXX's that could be potential unicorns. 1.61ct H SI1, $9,577 wire, 7.50 x 7.55mm https://www.adiamor.com/Diamonds/1.61-ct-H-SI1-Excellent-Cut-Round-Diamond/D41868768 Confirm eye clean. Like the angles. Put you in...

    Help! Was this a terrible purchase?!

    The stone we traded in was uncertified but appraised as an L VS2 1.27. To see this current stone and my old stone together is like night and day. The jeweler we purchased from has been open in our city for 30 years with excellent reviews. I’m not so much concerned with the grading as much as...

    Jewelers Mutual - How Does it Work?

    After working in insurance (and they ARE about making money- they are a business after all) is READ THE FINE PRINT. For example - theft. Some policies say there must be signs of break in and you must have anti theft deterrents in place ie alarm. So if your ring is stolen from your house and your...

    AGS-graded WF ACA - color grading

    Mochiko, Sorry for any concerns your appraisal may be causing you. As december-fire and others have stated quite well, there is a difference in accuracy in laboratory grading of a loose diamond in highly controlled lighting with a master set vs an appraiser (even a well qualified one) grading a...

    What makes CBIs "more contrasty" than other superideals?

    If I were shopping for a super ideal, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a diamond from either HPD or WF - it literally would come down to who has the best performing diamond available in line with my specs and in my budget. Because I know with a good degree of certainty that my eyes would likely never...

    Clear diamond cloudy in the sun, 41 pavillion 33.5 crown vs1 - why?

    I am learning all sorts of things today. FYI, I don't recall whom but someone earlier in this thread mentioned the "genetic makeup" of the diamond itself could be the culprit and how each diamond may have very minor variations. I can certainly understand their surprise and disappointment...
