    $780 for a 1 carat lab EC-found on Etsy

    I saw this company on Etsy, though I have no experience with them. They cut custom shapes and sizes too. One reviewer mentioned that the owner has a 2nd Etsy store but I haven’t come across that store. Anyway, here’s a link to a stone that seems like a very good deal, if anyone’s interested...

    Review on these diamonds

    Hello there, I just purchased these diamonds but I found out after purchasing one of the diamond GIA certificate date is Oct 2014. That diamond has HCA score of 1. But is it being 5 years old a concern? I paid 8500 dollars for it including settings. Please let me know if its a good deal. GIA...

    Harro Gem Review 2019 & Recommendations

    I got engaged last year and am now the proud owner of the most beautiful 2.60 carat oval diamond engagement ring; as I travel a lot for work I knew I wanted a replica of my ring made up to travel with. My local jeweler recommended I look in to moissanites as a possibility and after reading some...

    Purchase advice/review

    Hi All, I'm hoping for some help in reviewing the diamond I recently purchased online in terms of specs and value for what I paid. I did a decent amount of research, but am second guessing myself. I should receive the ring in two weeks and can return it if anyone thinks I could have done...

    High Performance Diamonds Review - 0.84 ct

    Hello Everyone, I'm about 15 months late in writing this review but my wife and I were out and about last week and were admiring how great her engagement ring and wedding band look and it finally compelled me to do something I hate doing, which is posting to an internet forum. The fact that...

    I also got this one for Christmas. I’m thinking of sending mine back, because I think I got a dud. The supposed 5/8 carat cushion is noticeably smaller than a .5 carat asscher I have. Asschers face up smaller than cushions, so either my bracelet is not 5/8 carat or the stone was cut to a depth...

    My 2 carat CBI diamond, set in a custom setting made by Durham Rose Jewellers, UK.

    I want to start this post with gratitude, so much gratitude. I'm not even in possession of my ring yet, because I'm going to pick it up next Wednesday, but I've been sent a video from the workshop and I'm desperate to share it. I also have lots to say about my journey up until now, for anyone...

    Seeking/Reviewing 1.5 Round Diamonds Under $13,000

    Hello, My partner and I are engagement ring shopping. We are both very new to the world of jewelry and diamonds, but have been trying to research as much as possible and this website has been incredibly helpful. Here are our criteria: Shape: Round Carat: 1.4 - 1.6 Clarity: VS2 + [I am a “mind...

    2 carat round with 5 pointer melee on the band (2.5 mm thick)? Will it look proportional??

    I think it would look nice. I had a 1.65 with 7.5 points and I think that was disproportionate. I suspect 5 point stones would be about 2.2mm and that's a nice look for a 2 carat stone. I have a 2 carat with 3 pointers... It's my preference (2mm) but it doesn't have to be yours! Go with what you...

    Diamond - keep or exchange?

    If you don’t love your diamond, you should definitely exchange it. I don’t see any transparency issues with your current diamond, but maybe my eyesight isn’t as good as it used to be. I have a VS2 stone that has a similar clarity plot and the additional clouds not shown statement, and I don’t...

    What makes this stone 20k?

    I suppose 4K per carat Is really due to the size, color saturation, cut (round sapphires typically waste a lot of rough). I mean you’re getting a stone that looks like a Tanzanite, but far more durable. Sapphires are also highly prized due to their durability, which is often overlooked when...

    Diamond - keep or exchange?

    I was telling myself to just keep it.. it is beautiful... but then the cloud comments worry me.... I was worried about the clouds before I made the purchase...... and although the E stone is gorgeous, I am not sure I want to drop below 1 carat.....

    Diamonds for rose gold engagement rings ?

    Hi all, First time poster, but have read so much on this site that I had to sign up! I'm currently looking at diamonds at a price around USD 7000 (AUD10,000) for a rose gold setting. Below are the preferred specifications. SHAPE: Round CARAT WEIGHT: 0.95 To 1.10 COLOR: D-G CLARITY: VS1...

    What makes this stone 20k?

    I have read on here Round is harder to find in a larger sapphire. I just thought this stone was a bit overpriced, since it’s heated, 9.7mm. I was thinking 10k would be a more fair price, but I clearly am no expert. I appreciate your response.

    Likesomehelp, if you are still reading this thread, I found a video that will be very useful for you.

    Lightbox Earrings Project Delimma

    FWIW, growers today use about 250kWh of electricity to grow a 1 carat diamond. That's the same amount of electricity that the average US household uses in 9 days. Lightbox is probably well below that number, as they have the largest reactors in the industry. Using data from the UN’s...

    You may have gotten a bad one. I wish they included information about the diamond as part of the package. All I know about mine is it appears to be a nice size and has a lot of sparkle - which I love of course. The only thing I’m not loving about mine is that it keeps flipping upside down, which...

    AGS 000 diamond seemingly out of current ideal proportions

    @sledge @TODiamonds and all others; thank you ever so much, this is a great starting point for me. After researching, it seems preloved is a big risk if I’m looking to focus on quality cut / light performance and are not equipped with the proper reports. I will go back to the drawing board and...

    Thoughts on this BE 1.27ct diamond

    I've not heard of T&H - but if they are downplaying the importance of cut and instead selling on colour/clarity/carat alone, they are not in the PS frame of mind ;-) :lol: I think Durham Rose sells MMDs, and they also sell CBI stones, so they should be well-versed in the sort of quality that we...

    Help choosing between 1.4 carat

    My girlfriend and I are ring shopping together and have narrowed it down to two options (we think). I wanted to go with a local brick and mortar retailer with great review so I know there may be a mark up built into the price. Here are the two options (both include a $350 setting that my gf...

    Someone Should scoop these Costco $629 1CTW I VS2

    Nice find, I jumped on it. It's cheaper than the lab grown ones and its costco so I can always return it if they aren't good. Thanks for the heads up. The reviews on the 0.90 carat version with screwback seems good and that one is $1800.
