I've heard a lot of negative things about shopping in the downtown jewelry/diamond districts in regards to being dishonest and the scams that they pull. Despite its negative image, would it be wise to shop there if I found a vendor that was honest...If their GIA, AGS, EGL, etc. diamon(s) checked out ok? I mean isn't a certified diamond a certified diamond?

I'm thinking about shopping around in the LA area diamond/jewelry districts and just wanted some imput upon doing so.

GIA grading report is not a guarantee of diamond quality or price.

One should educate him/herself, compare prices for similar diamonds from different sources, and get an independent professional opinion to be safe.
