Hi Everyone,
I have wanted a pair of studs for ages, and finally I have the finances to be able to do it (sort of- see VAT issue below). I ve been looking at all the diamonds here with blue fluorescence, and I really like the idea. So I ve been looking out for a pair of Js with blue flour, and have nt seen anything for months that I liked the look of. Recently these came up on blue nile. The first one does nt shows its GIA report, but a sales assistant from BN emailed it to me and the HCA gives it a score of under 2. I think the no is 110610259339.

First, what do you think?
Second....I thought BN did not charge VAT in the UK (I thought since they had a UK site it meant that it had a UK business). But that is not the case, so I am looking to pay about £200 in VAT. I know that sometimes the stones are listed with a number of vendors, and they are usually cheaper than BN. How do I go about checking this? If I could save a bit towards the VAT, that would be super.
Sorry for all the questions, and thanks again for your help!

Eek, I am seriously thinking of just buying them (in the case that you all think they are good stones), and swallowing the VAT charges...

I'm not a diamond expert, but put them on hold until you get opinions!

I found a UK jeweler called Diamondgeezer.com, who gave me the same price as bluenile. I like the idea of a more personal service, so I sent with him....
Heres hoping everything goes well.
I ll post when I get them, w a review of the jeweler.
