This forum is great, thanks for all of your great answers! I have more questions related to my last post "Relationship with Appraiser" and the process of diamond buying:

When I purchase a stone with a GIA Cert. is it fair to purchase with a full refund guarantee?

Would I then physically take my stone to an independent appraiser with the GIA to have it checked out? If it checks out fine, if not I could then make a return.

Also, GIA seems like the "buyers" cert to request. However, AGS lists angeles. Any preference?



Go Raiders!

Either grading cert is fine, but if you go with GIA you might want to also have a proportional analysis done with a Sarin or OGI (MegaScope), so you will have all the angle and % info.
