    Your thoughts about a diamond

    I totally reach your point since i didn't plan to sell it. It is not a huge concern for me (actually I was thinking to buy my ring in a regular shop which will have charged me much more and maybe without a certificate). And you're totally right. It is about giving enjoyment to my girlfriend, not...

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    So I just have them on phone, 20 minutes sooner. It is a little nightmare. Ask them a first time but they understood that certificate has "ASTOR" statement and diamond hasn't on the girdle (althought I emailed them, called them and explained the opposite) but error happens. The misunderstandings...

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

    To have a fast answer, i called the seller to know if they received my email (i didn't receive an acknowledgment of receipt nor an automatic answer). So here is what they said : - We have received your email - We acknowledge that the situation is a little weird or at least needs investigation -...

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

    Hello everybody, I agree with the event schedule ( GIA diamond engraved by GIA and after engraved by another company) of HDer ( this how i explain the situation) My main concern is what you said in your last reply. Is a certificate voided if there is a mismatch between what is engraved on the...

    Moreover if you consider this one : https://www.bluenile.com/fr/diamond-details/LD12797928?refTab=DIAMONDS&track=viewDiamondDetails&action=sameTab With ASTOR mention on GIA certificate. Some have, Some haven't....weird.

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    The certificate was issued at Jun. 6,2019. Here is the report : https://www.gia.edu/UK-EN/report-check?reportno=5326997151&s=1568893740439 So the only explanation i can imagine is : - They bought this diamond (maybe already GIA engraved), - They qualified it as "ASTØR" for commercial purposes...

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    So, here is the ring ! Engraved GIA number : almost checked ! There is the right GIA number plus "ASTOR" engraved (normal for an "ASTOR" line diamond) but "ASTOR" isn't mentioned in the GIA certificate. Is it ok? The certificate may have been issued before "ASTOR" engraving? It was a HUGE...

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    Great choice, don't have big expectations about service (as it is well known and in France) but they made good bakeries. For chocolate, it is more personnal (dark vs milk, raw vs roasted). My favourite is Jean Paul Hévin. Patrick Roger is very famous but i was very unpleased with service and...

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    I have verified, and you are right. My home insurance covers jeweleries (for 15000$). Ok for the appraisal, certainly the given address in antwerp will do the job.

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    She is sensitive, but i have purchased some jeweleries in 18k without problem since now. I would have preferred platinum too (for aesthetics reasons too) but the gift is for her, and i know she really prefers yellow gold.

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    The only reasons i see for a problem is : an error from blue nile because they are still humans an act of malevolence from delivery (which is rather possible).

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    Ok, is it easy to find an appraiser? Does it cost a lot of money? I have some well known jeweleries in my town but they are the same which i asked for a quote. I will be unconfortable to ask them after. For the magnifier, honestly it is more curiosity/personal culture oriented. An appraiser will...

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    With my ring purchased, have you got any advices for post delivery inspection? Is it mandatory to verify GIA number on the girdle (i can buy a 30X magnifier, it seems to cost around 20$ on amazon and could be fun to show) ? Has GIA certificate security marks to verify authenticity? Delivery...

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    About bakeries, you may have already tried the famous ones (they offer overall good quality but overpriced like in any product). Pierre Hermé, is maybe one of the most famous although he may no more bake something now). You can try (if not already done) : Philipe conticini (very famous too) ...

    Your thoughts about a diamond

    I was browsing and view this one. But it is 14k gold. I prefered 18k and i was not very conviced by the model. What i was looking for was more 1600-2000k$ which explodes my possibilities. With my settle i paid 5200€ - 100€ (discount code) which is already a little above my initial target. FYI ...

    This is the most likely scenario. Simple setting with a solid stone. Tonight I will do my choice. There a last test to pass, determine her finger size. She doesn't wear rings at the right finger...

    It seems to be the direction of the story. If this website fails in explaining a so much huge difference between certificate and the video, it will be the preferred solution. But I am so disappointed, maybe the price has been to good to be true. 5000€ with a such stone is a stunning price...

    Yes totally. I am not able to describe what is the problem like you did but it appears to me with very very poor "contrast". Additionnally i may have seen inclusions, for an IF it seems to be strange, am i wrong?
