    VC engagement ring review

    My fiancée and I had decided before getting engaged that since I love jewelry, reading about jewelry/diamonds and will be wearing my engagement ring forever, it made sense for me to decide what I would like, especially since I don’t wear rings and had no idea what style I even wanted initially...

    I've gone and bought my first piece if ebay jewelry after doing some research and some serious browsing. There were a few pieces that I've liked over the last few months, but many were more than I would like to spend as an inexperienced antique/thrifter, others were blatant repos or I just...

    Etsy Bracelet?

    Thanks @Queenie60 and @rocks I've actually shied away from this seller, only because of the minimal amount of reviews sad :(( The pieces of jewelry are beautiful, but she only has 61 reviews and been on etsy since 2013. I've found this seller (who has lots more reviews, and easily contacted)...

    What else are you all into?

    I love ballet - specifically going to the ballet. I love learning about it, reading reviews, and talking to my best friend about it. My dream is to have an apartment in NYC and to be able to go to the ballet almost every night. I have so much admiration for these dancers who dedicate their...

    Are we too elitist & doing 99% of newbies a disservice?

    So, I think instead of speculating about what newbies want - it may be good to get a newbie's thoughts. I really value PS for the wealth of knowledge that is exchanged freely here. No user is paid to do it, and it is done because people have a love for it and experience to draw upon that I...

    Quick lightbox review: cushion pendant, cushion studs, round studs; all white

    Thank you! If you land on any you like and want to keep, I’d love to see pictures. My husband got me the 5/8 cushion bracelet. It faces up small but has a ton on sparkle. I’m eventually going to have it re-set into another bracelet of some sort. I don’t like that the basket is always flipping...

    How did you happen to find PS?

    For our second anniversary we took a trip to Sonoma County where I discovered yellow diamonds in a jewelry store window display. When we got home I started googling "yellow diamonds" and Diamonds by Lauren popped up. I found PS by searching for Diamonds by Lauren reviews. That was in 2007. 12...

    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...

    Emerald Band: Bad idea or Worst Idea

    I have been drooling over some of the gorgeous Emerald bands in this forum and throughout PS. They are gorgeous in their channel set glory and I would love to add that line of color to my collection. I currently have a sapphire band that I try and be careful with but I know it is much harder...

    Sapphire question - is this a window?

    I actually ordered 4 online (two are very similar, just a 0.2mm difference in depth and I'm terrified of mixing them up so I do not take them out of their cases at the same time!) I'd love the capability of seeing all their stock in person, but at the same time I'm learning a lot being able to...

    Bought Engagement Ring With Knot Help!(Si1)

    Is the no return policy in writing? Unfortunately, this is not a great GIA XXX (if you've read stuff around here, you'll likely know that GIA XXX is very broad and doesn't actually mean excellent cut). Also, knots aren't great and do pose significant risk. Finally, read CAREFULLY the fine...

    Is this Alexandrite good value?

    A person who has been dealing in gems & jewelry - and specializing in alexandrite for 19+ years - would have some online presence, reviews, etc. I just did a quick search for that name - which I have never heard of - and found nothing. I would suggest searching/reaching out to

    Diamond change anxiety- help?

    This is such an awesome visual - thank you for sharing @distracts!! Ditto @kenny, a quality 10x loupe is far superior to a poorly made loupe with higher magnification - the more the magnification the less forgiving the focal range. I love my Bausch & Lomb Hastings triplet. Have heard excellent...
