by angel777 » Aug 30, 2006 Thanks to everyone on PriceScope!! I picked the diamond that I am buying tomorrow and finally decided on the setting. Now..... what are my next steps? I am going to get the stone shipped to me first, so I can take a look at it. Then I should take it to an independent appraiser. After which I myself should ship the stone to where my setting is? And after its ready, take it to the same appraiser again? Any advice, ideas, things to watch out for that you all know after years of reading fabulous information on this site? This will be my first diamond, first custom setting.... so this is a road unknown to me. Thanks again!!!
