by gordo59 » Apr 18, 2002 I have a diamond ring I need to sell. I bought the ring for $4000.00 CDN (including tax) at a very reputable jewelry store. It was appraised at $5200.00 cdn. The cert said it was 1/2 carat pear with SI1 clarity, G color and good cut, it also has two bagettes for a total 3/4 carat weight. I took it to a place that buys diamonds and they told me the diamond was SI2 at best and offered me $700.00. The problem is I can't find the cert. Is it possible that the origional cert. was wrong or are these guys trying to rip me off? I was expecting at least $2000.00 considering that the ring has never been worn. Am I out to lunch on this? HELP!!!
