    Ideal-Scope and ASET Scope deserve a far larger audience

    This is my personal experience from perusing B&M stores. Many carry various lines, ranging from non-branded to branded, as well as cut quality ranging from good to excellent/ideal, non-certified to certified (basically, the whole gamut). Most stores I visited carried GIA graded stones. I think...

    Vendors Reference List For Settings

    Hi All, I thought we needed a Sticky for Rocky Talk for vendors we have, & continue to commission for our settings (similar to the list on the Colored Stone forum). Some vendors will only obtain or create settings for stones they procure/sell. Email them to find out. Add Vendors to the list...

    Uncertainty purchasing a Neil Lane from Kay Jewelers

    Just wanted to chime in and give another vote for ID Jewelry. I live close enough to visit them in person (in NYC's diamond district), and they are wonderful. My engagement ring setting, wedding rings, wedding earrings, and anniversary ring are all from IDJ. My e-ring diamond is from another...

    Re: Hearts on Fire - diff btwn "Signature" and "Sensational" Thanks lovedogs, yes, I just asked the HOF rep if it is possible to buy the setting only. Could you review my reply to your post above - what is the process of purchasing a setting + loose stone like? Could you point me to a post...

    Hearts on Fire - diff btwn "Signature" and "Sensational"?

    Re: Hearts on Fire - diff btwn "Signature" and "Sensational" I realize that your GF is in love with that particular setting. But has she seen it in person? Or only online? I ask because the setting may or may not be great quality. It's $4900 (!!!) in platinum, and it's likely made from a...

    First time buyer...

    Hello, I am going to be purchasing a diamond ring/stone for my girlfriend of 2 years soon and would like some information. Just to get it out of the way, diamonds are not my thing. I don't know much more past the 4C's, but have been researching online and on reddit. I took my g/f to a local...

    Deciding to Return Kay ring and purchase Ritani instead

    Hi All, Would love to hear your thoughts on the above. Hubby decided to upgrade my wedding ring after 15yrs and has me working with a budget of $5000 he could go higher but I will not let him spend anymore as I am going from a $499 ring to $5000 and the shock of it all has me going nuts with...

    please help, new buyer and don't understand all of this

    So in a few weeks will be the day my girlfriend and I started dating a couple years ago. I went to the mall with her little girls and we looked at earrings for her. I'm in sales and wasn't willing to buy from zales or Kays without some more research first. I eventually found this site and...

    B2Cjewels: "Holiday" or elaborate "bait-and-switch"?

    As many of you, I took the purchase of the stone very seriously! Now, before I continue, let me say this: B2C has been extremely helpful, and Samuel and Rio have done a great job working with/for me. They're responsive to my emails and patient with my questions, and I certainly don't want to...

    Out of these 2 choices, which one is the better diamond?

    Thanks for replying. I'm going to put it all out there..LOL…starting from the beginning! I've been married for 22 glorious years to a gem ;) of a husband. I had to sell my wedding ring, along with all my other jewelry a long time back to help keep us afloat. I don't regret doing it at all...

    My Grandmother's Engagement Ring

    Thank you all for your condolences and also for your comments about the ring. Nice to be able to share it. I will definitely take it to a reputable jeweler - nowhere near Kay's or anything like that. I've been looking up places and reading countless reviews to find someone I can trust with the...

    Purchased a setting, now for a stone

    I am assuming the cost will be a few hundred, along with the mounting. From my call with the Kay's jeweler, when they have the in shop setter (which is insured supposedly, I asked) he will have a selection of mounts to pick from and it should be possible to do same day turnover (although I am...

    ABC Does Some Undercover Diamond Shopping

    That was an interesting segment. As pointed out by some others I can see where they sought out the most likely places to give them the experiences they wanted but that doesn't take away from the fact that this does happen and that those who are wise enough and informed enough to avoid...

    Please help, need advice and suggestions on Diamond Ring

    Hello, My fiance and I are shopping for engagement rings together. We started off probably on the wrong foot and went to a chain jewelry store first (Kay Jewelers). Although we were adament upon having a GIA certified diamond, apparently Kay does not carry these on hand. The manager spoke to us...

    Jeweler in DC/Annapolis/Baltimore Area

    Please help me choose setting for my asscher e-ring!

    asschergirl27, I have the same problem. I got setting from one of famous jeweler here, on Price scope and I didn’t like it at all, it was too tiny, halo and shank diamonds were too small, shank was flat and not comfortable on the finger. I don’t know it’s just me and I have a different taste...

    Neil Lane Bridal, just purchased, bad idea?

    Well, I've decided it's time to propose and I began the search for the perfect ring. I started by casually strolling past Kay's with "her" and she didn't like anything they had. (she LOVES cushion cut, so I wont settle for anything else). I then googled jewelers in the area and on the way...

    Slim shank pave settings

    Thanks for all of the replies. I know you all hear this a lot but you all are, once again, a godsend. I always had a feeling this was the case and mentioned this to my girlfriend earlier. She said she would think about it but as I'm sure you can understand, its never easy to tell the love of...

    GOG vs BGD on DIAMOND OVERALL QUALITY?

    Btw im working with jamie. Her name I recognized from a review dated july 11, 2011; so she's been there at least that long. She's been great and very reassuring but that's her job lol. She also is really eager for me to meet and speak with BG on the phone so he can work with me himself. This...

    Scott Kay & 1ct. Passion Cut...please chime in

    Milton, thank you for the amazing post. I must add that the Passion Cut diamond was not forced on us or put out there to be superior (extra sparkly, blingy, etc.) to the standard cut. The diamond was bought from D. Geller & Son (independently owned business) and not a chain store in the mall...

    Solasfera diamond?

    Just some observations that might help with your search. My original engagement ring was a 1/2 carat stone from Kay Jewelers. It was a 100-faceted patented cut. Not certified, and I never knew the color grade until I had it appraised this year. It appraised as a J/K in color. I never...
