    About to get this diamond! Please let me know if there are any issues

    Happy to share. I should probably make a page for this. :-) We get many requests to be sponsor vendors and many of them are not eligible because of the vetting process. The vetting process has helped keep the pool PriceScope sponsors a great choice for everyone. Many of the Sponsors have...

    Oval Diamond Search

    @marymm perhaps you should look up the definition of shill or shilling before you come across as you have. Let me assist you: shill (shĭl)Slang n. 1. One who poses as a satisfied customer or an enthusiastic gambler to dupe bystanders into participating in aswindle. 2. One who publicly promotes...

    Healthy Living Thread

    Marcy-your floors look beautiful! And I love the rugs too. Those are the colors I gravitate to. I find them very soothing. We’re trying to decide on whether we want carpet or hardwood in our bedroom. Carpet is better for a bedroom, but we have pets. The very day it is installed, one of the cats...

    Clueless dude here, need help finding a diamond ring!

    Hi. Good for you for reaching out!! It’s such an intimidating and expensive process and one that you want to be so special! I consigned w Jewels by Grace and people offer less than the listed price all day long (I sold my ring for less than listing). So it doesn’t hurt to tell her your all in...

    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...

    Thoughts on this diamond?

    Having done a bunch of looking at Yadav, Four Mine, etc, I don't think it's *entirely* inaccurate to say that they aren't in the business of providing tons of customer service. Their model seems to be offering extremely competitive pricing on stones (many of which are overseas without ASET/IS...

    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...

    Yet Another OEC Thread...

    There are many excellent suggestions posted since I last saw this thread. This situation makes me feel so sad and angry on your behalf. Also quite awkward that your husband bought with cash. :( Has your husband returned yet? I would love to know what type of conversation he has with this...

    Should dealers encourage users to write PS reviews?

    I think the best reviews are the unsolicited ones. I would be completely turned off by a request to write a review and that has never happened to me in the jewelry world. A vendor would ask you to write a review if you were happy with your purchase - would they ask you to write one if you were...

    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...

    Advice on this old mine cut - pre owned

    1). It’s not an Old Mine Cut. It’s a Circular Brilliant (see GIA lab report). It’s possibly an Early Modern Brilliant, so possibly from the 1940s. It looks like EMBor Transitional to me, due to its large table and shallow depth. It could be a Transitional, due to its blocky facets. An Old...

    Should dealers encourage users to write PS reviews?

    Interesting question David. I am a one owner business providing a very specialized service to my clients. I pride myself on giving my clients an "outstanding experience" so that they will leave my office with a positive feeling. My type of business is not geared towards social media like...

    Should dealers encourage users to write PS reviews?

    Hi Jeff, I think because your billing is small compared to a merchant selling very expensive diamonds and jewels, the opportunity for handing out a under the table kick back is very limited. You are not likely to be able to bribe a consumer for a positive review here. I do suspect that there...

    GemSafe insurance - very poor customer service

    I helped to develop the GemSafe program so I feel responsible when anyone has an issue with the GemSafe customer service. I know the underwriter that reviews these applications and the issues she addresses on an every-day basis. Just now GemSafe (which is underwritten by AIG) is undergoing some...

    GemSafe insurance - very poor customer service

    Thanks for your help on this! I’m not able to login to the website because I never had an account — I purchased the GemExtensive policy (not GemValue) directly over email with Stephanie. I tried using the email address that I used with Stephanie to login and was told the email address does not...

    Apologies for being the common engagement ring seeker, I could use some guidance.

    Hi Bron, thank you for being detailed with the term "eye clean". Definitely helpful knowledge that I can use with the search. I am not certain if online websites would list their diamonds as Eye Clean. I visited JamesAllen a few times and BlueNile, I do not think I've seen them list their...

    Re: Article: Over Grading of Blue Fluorescent Diamonds Revis I can't comment on the Secrets as I have not read that yet. But I recently read Richard Wise's book The French Blue about the journeys of John Baptiste Tavernier in the 17th centrury and ultimately his purchase of the diamond that...

    One Ring to Rule Them All - My Ring from ID Jewelry

    So I got to work this morning, paid the remaining balance on my ring, got myself a nice cup of coffee and sat down at my desk after making a doctor's appointment - feeling pretty stressed out. My stress melted away when I got an e-mail from Yekutiel at I.D. Jewelry informing me that the ring has...
