    Three-stone Flower Engagement Ring [August Vintage Review]

    I posted this review on his website, but my fiancee and I just want to share how great the engagement ring we got from Jonathan was. Plus, review websites don't let me post the end result. He's already known here as Rhino, and his website is So, we wanted a...

    Re: losing faith - need an honest diamond dealer/jeweler in @madelise Did your appraiser in culver city determine the value of the diamond is equal to, lower, or higher than your purchased price from GOG? Did anyone else have the diamond independently appraised with a value equal to, lower...

    losing faith - need an honest diamond dealer/jeweler in LA

    Re: losing faith - need an honest diamond dealer/jeweler in Roughly about my purchase price, and just slightly higher so that I wouldn't have to get it reappraised for the next 5 years for insurance purposes. What does that matter? I hope you're not blind sighted by that BS people feed of...

    Diamonds and Vendors

    I agree with what you have noticed. My experience with B&Ms was very similar to yours. It's hard to make generalizations that encompass all situations, but my observation was that B&Ms capitalize on impulse buying and many people's fear of buying a diamond sight unseen over the internet. Many...

    GOG Prices vs. Alternatives

    Hello, Started my research a couple of weeks ago and came across this forum which has been very, very helpful. I have read many positive reviews about Jonathan at Good Old Gold on Long Island. I live in Eastern Pennsylvania and could drive out to NY. From what I have read many people...

    Princess cut e-ring damaged during setting. Now what?

    Thankfully I would say that Jonathan provides more diamond education than any other vendor here between what is on his website and on YouTube.

    $50k budget/1.5-2.0 ct - any recommendations?

    JA is a good online vendor but you won't get the designer settings-the same videos/service/etc as you would get with GOG. With your budget I would stick with GOG since it is so close to you. Call them up and tell Jonathan your budget and make a day of it. Go in and view a range of...

    Is this diamond good value? Is buying without seeing safe?

    My FI bought mine online without either of us seeing it (both of us were skeptical when I first found PS). We came to feel quite confident in buying it because of all the rave reviews on Good Old Gold (as well as other vendors like Whiteflash, ERD, etc). I called up Jonathan from GOG for...

    Morrell Flame-GOG stone-Atlas appraisal Pt. 1 THE QUEST

    As you can see by the subject line, the story ends with the purchase of a diamond from GOG and a Mark Morrell Flame setting. It begins with me knowing absolutely nothing about diamonds, platinum quality, Pricescope or anything else to do with the diamond industry. I do know one thing: that I...

    I started my diamond education about 2 months ago and lurked on a few forums finally deciding pricescope had the best members and best collective knowledge. I spent a lot of time here and quickly learned that cut was the most important of the "C''s" when it comes to the performance of a...

    Encouraging appraisers to do the tango, like only they know how to do...

    Second that. An "appariser" that reviews a few stones on behalf of a customer is a seller. What is different from here from the position of a retailer selecting diamonds from a list once a customer asks for specific goods ? Actually, if you go to the "Local Jewelers (beta)" link above, you may...

    Mr. Medoes... Your question is very good. I'll attempt to address it. There are a lot of different categories that computers can do, but they are limited. Let's start with ray tracing. Serg from Russia has developed Diamond Calc. There is in the works, or at least partially completed a 3D...

    For your review

    I looked through, but I didn’t save the review. I’m disappointed that it got removed. I noticed it a week ago or so as I wanted to see how it had gotten rated. I thought it was a fair review and I wonder if somehow the author can remove comments? I notice some of the political books have very...
