Ok I have another question, if you have a cert for a ring and it has H&A diamonds would the cert state that they are H&A? I am looking once again at wedding bands on Ebay and I have found a ring that I swear one of the diamons looks like its has arrows but the picture is to far away to tell for sure and I am not sure the seller would know and the cert just states that they are round brilliants. Thanks again

Not necessarily. You can find some diamonds which show a strong arrow pattern and distinct hearts which have poor proportions and may not be the best performers. Conversely you can find diamonds which don't show arrows which are top performers! Also because a diamond is stated to be h&a doesn't mean it meets the standards necessary to meet the approval of experts and conoisseurs of this cutting style. It depends on what value the most, if you aren't fussed about having an undisputed h&a diamond, if you find one which has good proportions and also shows a nice arrow pattern then that might be perfect for you, it just depends on what you want.

Ok that sound reasonable the cert is from 2002, so who knows, thank you again, you have been very helpful to me, here is the ring I am looking at, I am not a fan of the setting but that can be changed and the price is amazing and I think I might go for it and take my chances, if it stinks I will not be out that much money
