Who is the seller?techguy89|1460045140|4016577 said:Thanks everyone. The price is for the diamond and the setting. The diamond is a vintage diamond I think from the early 1900s and is 3.64 MN SI2 Elongated Cushion cut, which I don't think modern cuts really make anymore. The setting is a new setting, but a vintage style to match the diamond.
I can get an EGL certification, because they can do it without removing the stone from the setting.
(Worthless for value setting, GIA grades only loose stones table down)
If I want the GIA, it would have to be if I'm buying it and not a condition of sale, as GIA generally gives low rating to vintage diamonds anyway.
Get it in writing(and signed by owner of the store), vendor pays for the GIA report. You don't care if they call it a Cushion Brilliant not an antique, or the cut grade(shouldn't have one), symmetry or polish.
If it comes back worse than SI2, and/or below P color than its eligible for a 100% refund and vendor pays for the GIA report. If it comes back SI2 or higher and O/P or higher you pay for the report and keep the stone.
If the vendor is not willing to agree to this run away as they already know its not going to be graded well by GIA-GTL and they are not representing it fairly.
The seller is generally well regarded on this forum for vintage style rings.
