Anyone know of a reliable, good appraiser in the Orange County/Inland Empire area of Southern CA? I believe my boyfriend purchased the ring! We would like to get it appraised and insured right away.

Thank you!

Thank you! I will check him out. I like how he does it in front of you. That was something I was worried about.. whether or not appraisers do it in front of you or not in fear of them switching your diamond out. Maybe I'm just a bit paranoid but it is a big purchase!

James Allen says they provide an appraisal along with the diamond bought. Is this sufficient for insurance purposes or should I go ahead and get my own independent appraisal?

I'm not sure what kind of appraisal comes with your purchase, I assume retail value appraisal. Most insurance companies only honor "replacement value" appraisal which most appraisers provide, knowing that you are getting jewelry appraise for insurance purpose. David provides "replacement value" certificate for insuring purpose and he also will tell you the retail value of your jewelry.
