by Caerid » Feb 21, 2002 Good morning, pricescopers. I have been looking around for a while to find information on whether branded fancy cuts will be coming out anytime soon. My boyfriend and I are planning on getting engaged soon, and I'm set on the princess cut. However, it seems a crapshoot to buy one of these diamonds online. I'm looking for a vendor who can guarantee a quality cut, rather than just some numbers to go by. In searching, I have found nothing close to a SuperbCert or 8*-type company for fancies. My questions are 1)will branded fancy cuts become a reality? 2)if so, when? (anyone have any information?) 3) when (or if) they do come out, can anyone speculate on a price difference between branded and unbranded? (I tried to use round branded vs. unbranded, but know nothing about rounds) The closest I've been able to come to finding a branded princess is the Blue Nile Signature Collection. However, these seem way overpriced and merely based off of the AGA recommendations, not a special cut or anything. All info would be greatly appreciated. While we want to get engaged soon, if these will be coming available before April or May, I think it would be worth waiting for. Sorry for such a long post and thank you for any help that can be provided.
