I have been researching diamonds on the web for months--my husband is going to buy me a new diamond for our 10th anniversary. Just today, I saw some diamonds indicating they were GIA certed on an jeweler's website priced considerably lower than I've seen. I'm guessing they are clarity enhanced, but don't know for sure at this point. My question is, are clarity enhanced diamonds even worth considering, or should I just keep on looking? I appreciate any advice you can give!!

Thanks for the advice! I called the e-retailer today and inquired about some of the stones that were priced so incredibly low and was told that it was a mistake, that they were entered inaccurately on their site. So . . . I will continue to look!!

Hi Barb,If diamonds are clarity enhanced, in should be mentioned in GIA report and dealer must inform you too.Why they are so much cheaper? Could be many other reasons: cut quality and origin (India, Israel, etc).Is clarity enhanced diamond worth it? Difficult question. Depends very much on your taste. Some would say that it is better to buy Moissanite or CS instead. But obviously there is a market for this product too.
