by charmingnewbie » Sep 3, 2013 Hi - newbie here. Quick but pressing question for you all - getting a new stone certified. Upon receiving the stone back, I carefully reviewed it and found a chip. Tiny, but definitely there. They were surprised and they're holding onto the stone until tomorrow when their in-house gemologist can take a look. I'm going to join the review. Now, I'm not 100% certain the stone wasn't chipped before. Almost certain - I checked the stone carefully and didn't see anything when I first got it from the jeweler. Before I go back to the jeweler and start that conversation, I just want to make sure that this isn't something that could have happened while GIA had it. Thanks in advance!!!
