I've been following the posts on this website, and it's been a GREAT source of information. I've been looking hard for a diamond myself,and hope to buy a Canadian stone (home grown and all, etc.) There is a diamond wholesaler online at www.diamondfile.com who seems to offer very competitive prices on government certified gems. These are all AGS 000. Does anyone have any experience with this broker? My other (most recent) option is a local jeweller who will sell me a polar bear 1.09c F 'fine cut' SI1, with a platinum setting, for 14500CAD (tax included). Any thoughts?
