So I inherited an heirloom diamond and I was wondering... is it worth it to get GIA certified if it will always be in the family as an heirloom?
oh is this for your engagement ring? congratulationsjlp86|1314231093|2998638 said:Haha I will DEFINITELY post pictures...when I have it haha. BF has it hidden until the setting is made and it can be reset...then I have to wait until it is given to me! haha its a big waiting game. I did see it when his grandmother gave it to us and its so pretty and sparkly!
