I have never heard about ID Jewelry although I always frequent PS. Maybe because I have often deal with another online vendor which I thought has the best price on earth as compared to other PS vendors based on the same stone.

And my previous vendor do send me the diamond pictures (though bad pictures but is better than no pictures at all) while other PS vendor require some amount of money in order to view the exact same diamond pictures despite being priced higher.

But as I read about IDJ testimonials from many satisfied customers, I did a search on their diamond inventory. To my surprise, they have the exact same database with price lower than the previous vendor I dealt with.

Good start, I know I would definitely purchase from IDJ now. So I email them and Yekutiel reply very quickly. Btw, it helps to identify yourself as a PS’er as he would know what we are looking for, our expectations, he calls them “cream of the crops”.

After 2+ weeks of sourcing and shipping, it is now finally on my hand. Fedex International Priority takes 3 days; I did a TT on my Monday night (his Monday early noon), and I requested for him to resize the ring to a smaller size for me by that day as I believe that payment would clear the next day

Sure enough, he received the funds on his Tuesday noon and ship on the same day, while I received the parcel on my Friday noon (his Thursday night). I’m 12hours ahead of NY.

So now: GUESS THE CARAT~~

beautiful ring and 3+ ct for my guess as well.. :love:
Hi ladies, I wanna thanks you babes for being so nice.. I am so so happy you people thought of it as a carat weight I initially wanted to upgrade into.. Here is my story:

I wanted some stones in the 2.5ct – 3+ct range, and to be within my budget, I can only go with EGL cert. Yekutiel calls me the next day and warns me against EGL. But I told him that there might be nice ones out there for me. 1 week past and he send me a total of 4+ EGL certs and 3 EGL diamond photos that I called for which just cannot make it.

And after 1 week of “wasting” Yekutiel time (he is so patient with me, didn’t get shocked about my tiny budget wanting big carats), I told Yekutiel that morning “Hey, sorry for the trouble, but let’s just focus on GIA certs”. He laughs it off and said ‘Yeah right, finally X, you are making some sense now. I told you this one week ago’. LOL. After the call, he sends me some GIA certs.

That night, Yekutiel called me saying that he had discussed my case with his father (upon researching, I learn that his father’s name is Israel), Israel show him a diamond that is already mounted in a Tiffany setting and Yekutiel guarantees that I would love it, score very well in HCA; plus the price is extremely attractive. I regard the diamond as Israel’s treasure as I couldn’t find it in their shared database. Yekutiel told me that Israel bought the diamond some time ago (not sure whether is it recently or what, I am too excited to exactly figure out what exactly was he saying)

Great news ~ YEAH! But the carat is a little too small for me and I wanted to have more choices.

Hence, I asked for 3 other GIA diamonds in his database which he calls it in and did video reviews for me (not those professional GOG videos, but at least I can see how the diamond sparkles). And yes again it is time wasting as in the end, I am back with the attractively priced stone that Yekutiel highly rave on.

All-in-all, I think Yekutiel send me 3 EGL diamond photos, 4 EGL certs, 6 GIA certs, 4 GIA diamond videos. All within 1+week, that is really what I am going for as I am really an impatient person living in a fast pace environment. I can’t wait. LOL.

Yekutiel is WONDERFUL. All the raves here are true! I don’t bother getting an ASET/IS image as I totally trust him! And yes, I save 43% of my budget due to this attractively priced stone but of course a much smaller diamond as compared to what I initially wanted. And since my initial budget is for a bigger carat, I figure this 43% savings is worthwhile for this diamond specs.

Just wanna say dealing with Yekutiel is so convenient. I don’t have to wait till their operating hours to contact them. It is probably because we converse using Viber (an iphone or android apps for free international calls – though kind of frustrating if you are outside of home without stable Wi-fi as you will get disconnected often. But at home, it is a good source of international communication tools). Because when Yekutiel is at home, he doesn’t have roaming services, so he cannot do regular calls with me. We settled the entire transaction via viber calls because I didn’t know that regular incoming international calls were free for me – silly me.

But of course, please be considerate when calling him as you have to know his ‘awake hours’. I didn’t call him like 3am in the middle of his night. We know our time difference as I told him that in my 1st email to him. I also don’t contact him during Saturday (his off day, let him have some rest). He really continues to work even at home – he is seriously VERY GOOD!!

I am definitely going to be a RETURN CUSTOMER. Especially now that I bought a diamond smaller than what I initially wanted – but that is gonna be years later from now for the NEXT BIG UPGRADE.. LOL

DH pay the $$ and I pay my efforts.

Diamond Spec:
2.05ct, 8.15 – 8.20 x 4.98mm
O-P color (faced up white due to the setting, I don’t really care about colors anyway),
SI2 (Totally Eye-clean as Yekutiel said),
Cut Grade: EX, Polish: VG, Symmetry: EX
Fluorescence: Strong Blue

HCA Score: 0.9 EX - Within TIC range
Light Return: EX, Fire: EX, Scintillation: EX, Spread: VG
Table: 58%, Depth: 60.9%, Crown: 14%, Pavilion: 43%,
Crown Angle: 33.5degrees, Pavilion Angle: 41.0degrees
Girdle: Medium - Slightly Thick (faceted) 4%

Finger Size: US3.75 (it isn't really small as I have seen people with Size 2 here!! I am green with envy!!)

It is quite an excellent diamond I would say. Though because of my VERY PERFECT EYESIGHT, I can still see tiny black inclusion on the side table and but only with careful inspection within 3inches away from my eyes. Anything further away, no matter how hard I squeeze my eyes, I cannot see anything at all.

I am surprise at how sparkly, firey, great scintillation it have especially after viewing it under the Microscope, I saw other small black inclusion at the other parts of the diamond which are all cannot be seen using naked eyes. Totally brilliant cut and especially within indoors, when the light shine onto the diamond and if I am looking at the diamond directly, it BLINDS MY EYES. I am serious, no joke..

Yekutiel calls me this morning (apparently his night) and told me: 'Today is the big day! Your diamond would arrive today'.
He is so so nice..

I think I am happy!!
Thanks alot

3.75 is a really small finger.. yes there is 2.5 but that's very rare.. most people range from 5+ :bigsmile: so congrats. it's a great rock and surely rocks on your small hand.. :Up_to_something:

No way it's 8.15mm. Either the stone or your finger is a shape shifter!

Hmmm...I was thinking myself that that stone looks unusually large! I have stones that are 8.50mm, 8.90mm and 9.29mm and my finger size is sometimes a 3.75 (right now it's a 4) and I *swear* your stone looks like my 3ct (9.29mm) on my finger, if anything it looks a smidgen bigger too.

Maybe IDJewelry shipped you the wrong (I mean the *right* stone :wink2: ) stone? In any case, you're a lucky ducky!! :appl: Congrats.

Lol, I do believe it is the right stone.. Inclusions are in the right place..
Perhaps the stone appears larger in photos than what it actually is?

Currently it still look huge to me. Awaiting for DSS to sit in. Hopefully not so soon
Yes, I am really lucky, 1st I have a kind DH who lets me have what I wants, then I found a great vendor who got me a great diamond.
I am getting blind by the diamond sparkle.. I can't look into it directly..
