    My search for a yellow emerald cut diamond might be over. Alex at B2C helped me find a 1.18 intense yellow, after one bad candidate, one return, one bargain I lost by seconds to another buyer (the timing is like Formula One). An intense yellow step cut that I can actually afford, sort of. Anyway, it's being set right now, hope to post photos. It has green fluor so it might be interesting.
    I've bought diamonds two other places and the service here is outstanding, and I am NO big spender. These might be the most polite people on the planet and the most attentive. Alex worked so hard to secure a diamond I really like and Patrick took care of the financial details with tact and efficiency. This diamond will be more beautiful because of how kindly I was treated.

    Unfortunately the diamond chipped while being set, Patrick sent me the sad image. He said everyone there felt it was a really nice diamond, exceptional performance. But they don't sell chipped diamonds.
    These things happen, I need to count my blessings.

    Nooooooo :(

    That is sad news!

    Is it possible to recut it? It would be a shame to waste what sounds like an awesome stone!

    The setter said it almost seemed "soft" when it broke while setting a prong. I wonder if it had some inclusion that wasn't obvious but made it weak. As Patrick said, it's a good thing it broke with them and not once I got it home. I could see myself hitting a door frame and having it shatter.

    That is strange :( but I know that some diamonds have suffered a lot of strain under the ground and may be weakened!

    I hope they can save the rest of the stone with a recut :)

    If you would be happy to post the pictures, it would still be cool to see it :)) (although I appreciate you might not want to because it is annoying/upsetting.)

    Hope this is visible. Hard to not feel gutpunched, it was so beautiful, so much light.
    HOWEVER, let us keep this in perspective. What really matters, family, friends, animals.

    That is a real shame!

    It looks great, even from the reverse!

    I guess some things just aren't meant to be, so hopefully whatever the universe has lined up for you next will be even more awesome!

    Do ask about whether they consider it could be recut, though - it would be a shame if it can't.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. So many good people on this forum, it's been wonderful to discover it.
    I did ask about a recut. My guess is they'll cut it into a radiant, which I don't want. But it might make vivid as such, and be a beautiful diamond for someone. Or a yellow drill bit, who knows.
