    What HCA rating can I expect for a round, 1.4c, H, SI1 Diamond?

    Hello I know exactly how you feel haha. Jewelry store lighting is very deceiving so you can’t judge diamonds based on that. And please don’t worry about feeling like a child, the majority of guys going to jewelry stores for an engagement ring have the exact same amount of knowledge and THAT is...

    Does anyone know how to get around a 30 day return policy?

    Re: Does anyone know how to get around a 30 day return polic Well, generally people here who don't want to pay for super ideal cut will still want to find stones with similar measurements. We generally recommend a depth of up to 62 but a max of 62.3. I am not saying it's bad, I am just saying...

    Noobie here looking for help and reassurance.

    I can walk you through what my thought process would be. First thing is to check the appraiser. This is the place: 16 good yelp reviews. Seems okay. Then you read them and you notice most of the people on there are...

    Looking for a purple-blue 7mm round spinel

    That's what I was thinking too. I will have to review the return policy, I'd like to get it in my mitts. That was going to be my next question. I will have to see if we can just have a setting made for the stone. Where we live there are not any local jewlery that are not chains to do this for...

    Help in finding a diamond please:

    Correct, there is nothing more important than cut in the beauty of a diamond. A member here just posted a Whiteflash ACA today that is over 5 cts ! (However, to answer one of your questions, yes, there is a big price jump at 5 cts!!!)...

    Looking for a purple-blue 7mm round spinel

    You aren't high maintenance, well, I mean, no more than any of the rest of us lol As for a custom there are designers that in your budget for a pave band depending on the metal and the design I think it's a good idea to see them in person that's the only way to really get a feel. Just try not...

    Reviews? Experiences? E-Wedding Bands

    Hello guys, I have been lurking around this forum for a while (mostly rocky talky) but finally have a question! I was looking into a platinum band for my fiance. His ring size is 5.75. So I think a 4.5mm platinum band should look okay. I was dealing with ID Jewelry (great team!) but also...

    Camera buffs / enthusiasts - advice for DSLR purchase?

    Ugh, I know - if only there were great lenses for cheaper! So I looked up that Sigma, and it might be a good bet for you depending on what you're using it for. It's a superzoom lens, so you might actually be able to do some macro stuff on it (that you wouldn't be able to do with your 18-55...

    It''s a GO! Please help me replace stolen ring.

    I've posted a few times before, but now it is official. I am set to replace my engagement ring that I recently discovered was stolen out of my jewelry box. Too many people have been in and out my house to accuse someone (or everyone), but it is a lesson to me that if a ring needs resizing...

    It''s a GO! Please help me replace stolen ring.

    Roxie, Why not stick with a round? You put 4 prongs on a square cushion HA and it starts looking like a round. Plus you have a lot more choices with rounds than Square Cushion HA and will probably get larger faceup size for the same money. If you want a complete novo replica we could easily...

    I know. It absolutely stinks to "lose" your job even if it was one that you didn''t really like. Of course you''re running the gamut of emotions ... It''s much better to be in control of that decision than to have someone else make it for you. I can imagine its hard getting motivation to...

    Hello everyone, I recently decided to make the plunge and start shopping for an engagement ring. After visiting numerous stores in my area and seeing jewelry out of my price range I decided to look on the internet. The thing is this, being in the military I don''t make allot so being as it is...

    Hello everyone out there. After doing months of research on the pricescope forums, I have decided to buy a custom made e-ring for my girlfriend. To pay back the pricescope community for all that I have learned and possibly help someone who was where I was at a few months ago, I will document...
