Hi everyone! Some of you might remember me from my whirlwind adventure exchanging a poorly cut diamond for GIA 517284825 (.90 carat, G, VS1, 35/40.8 ). While the diamond I have now is absolutely gorgeous, my fiancé and I want to sell my current diamond and upgrade to a 1.3 carat. We aren’t going to upgrade in the usual sense; we are going to go with an unmentionable unless we can get a decent deal on an earth grown 1.3 carat that’s 4.5k or below (which I know isn’t possible). The caveat to selling my diamond is that I don’t have the original GIA report. Should we send my diamond in to have it recertified or just sell it as is? The number is inscribed on the girdle, but if having the report will get us more money for the diamond I think it might be worth doing. We’re hoping to get at least $2,500 for my current stone.
