    Buying Moissanite from Tianyu Gems

    I completely agree! I've been keeping an eye on the lab grown diamond industry since DeBeers announced Lightbox Jewelry. There are still issues with color/clarity when they try to grow too quickly. I have read that HPHT is better than CVD but most places combine the two. I'm patiently...

    Hi all, Long time since I posted on this forum, and a very long time since I’ve posted an update about my own ring, but I wanted to return here to give a final update about the ring and the proposal. Everyone on RT was such a huge help during this process that I thought that I owed it to you all...

    Thank you for such a lengthy review. I'm still waiting on mine to arrive so this is a nice read. Would you be willing to post a picture of the AVC moissy next to your engagement ring? I'd love to see a comparison. :D It sounds like a gorgeous gem. I ordered mine for similar reasons as you. I...

    Question about recommended cut grade on diamond earrings

    Hi all, thank you everyone for your input and feedbacks i've gotten along the way, I don't think i would have ended up with the best stones for the money if it wasn't for pricescope members and information that it provides. After much search and questions about visual difference due to color...

    Now I really did it :((

    Missy, I'm glad your appointments went well! Ugh, I'm behind on all of mine :oops: And I'm almost 55 and haven't had a colonoscopy yet. The discussion about them here is interesting, I'll ask my doctor about alternatives. My husband had one a few years ago and everything went fine…he did...

    Best custom ring designer?

    I'm a little biased since I, too, have a lower colored stone, but... I have never once had anyone (not even close family or friends who wouldn't hesitate to be brutally honest) mention one thing about the color of my stone. FWIW, my family flipped when I told them it was a J!! One of my...

    Scott Kay & 1ct. Passion Cut...please chime in

    Milton, thank you for the amazing post. I must add that the Passion Cut diamond was not forced on us or put out there to be superior (extra sparkly, blingy, etc.) to the standard cut. The diamond was bought from D. Geller & Son (independently owned business) and not a chain store in the mall...

    White gold setting with J color? And other advice needed!

    After stalking the boards for the past month I decided to register and get some direct feedback about my imminent purchase. First off, I am in love with this setting because she has tons of silver jewelry in this style and loves it...

    All my Taxes live in Texas...

    So in the long and exciting journey that is purchasing an engagement ring... I''ve gone from evaluating rings in a B&M store... thinking of using a "guy" that a "friend" of mine knows... to strongly considering an unseen diamond from Blue Nile (pretty much unaware of any other online diamond...

    Please help! Rookie needs advice for promise ring!

    I bought a pair of earrings from Overstock a few years back, the quality of the diamonds are better suited to industrial drill bits rather than jewelry. The diamonds look like crap and are peppered with carbon spots, blech!! (didn''t have a loupe or any diamond knowledge when I bought them...

    Face-up color versus body color grading

    I think I have a good suggestion to make to bring improvment in color grading on lab reports while not alienating the most influential lab clients, diamond dealers. Why not always report the body color, as viewed from the side, as we do now for near-colorless diamonds and then also report the...

    Color Grading Diamonds At GIA: The First Fifty Years

    Just saw this today and thought that others might find it of interest too. The article below is from "Gems and Gemology" and featured on Rapaport News: Color Grading Diamonds At GIA: The First Fifty Years "In the more than half a century since the Gemological Institute of America (GIA)...

    Is this too good to be true?

    Hey guys! Yes. The 1.33ct is an H&A cut with shorter lower girdles (there are 16 of them on the pavilion) which in the "jewelry store" light condition shows a little bit of a bolder arrows pattern. One of the direct results of cutting shorter lower girdles is a thicker arrow. On diamonds...
