Would you recommend that consumers buy EGL stone then get it appraised, if matches what cert says, it's all that counts? makes sense. Mkt tend to favor GIA over EGL.

I guess I am only concern about resale in sense if i want to trade up in case orig seller is no longer in business, or I moved somewhere else, i'd have better time trading in w/GIA cert bc most stores believe GIA is accurate. True?

Would u recommend consumer to buy non-certified stone and get it appraised?

If it'd save me a few $hundreeds, I personally would go for it (having it checked with David of course). I'm speaking for myself only. You should do whatever makes you feel comfartable. :)

Keep in mind that you can always get GIA or AGS report later in case you'll need to sell your diamond.
