by KSmith » Feb 25, 2002 In looking at a few oval diamonds this weekend we saw a wide variety of bow ties. Some diamonds that looked great on paper, yet still had a bow tie that was far too noticable. It really proves the point that looking at the actual diamond itself is very important. I read the article on Pricescope by David Atlas about independent appraisers and would be curious if an appraisal would include something talking about that? I am guessing that the output is pretty similar from appraiser to appraiser, but do any or all include something that tells you exactly what aspects of the diamond cause it to be worth more or less?
