    Andrey, not a bad idea. I have some (actually many) I wouldn''t mind unloading from my favorites. I''ll have to go through them when I have more time.

    Thanks!

    Sort of a "do it yourself" FAQ section

    I like it.

    Here''s two...on Princesses...and AGS certificates.

    Chrono reminded me of how to find this first one by showing up recently...

    a) Princesses simply maybe they can. If you know what basic principles to apply....


    Also...AGS certificates keep changing...and you can be challenged to keep up with them. Our current FAQ section takes them only so far. These help to bring them forward...

    b) See here...

    MM to Carat Stone Conversion Chart


    This is handy for converting diameter to carats & vice-versa.

    Speaking of helpful threads, is there a thread somewhere in the forums that I''m totally overlooking with picture-taking hints? It''s difficult capturing diamonds and it would be so helpful to us newbies to have camera hints all in one place.

    I''ve done searches on Pricescope for picture taking hints, handshot hints, etc. and haven''t found anything relevant yet. I did run across a post on resizing pics, but I''m not quite at that point yet.

    Has this conversation about contextualizing the value of a flawless diamond occurred before? (It''s happening as I write this!) Maybe, but I haven''t seen it before.

    Although there may be a historical basis for valuing the old AGS triple zero...the smart guys on Pricescope have given the meaning of a "perfect" clarity grade a run for their money, I''d say.

    1) Counterbalancing my first post above...why you CAN benefit from the right kind of data when selecting princesses and other fancies...

    2) Also, although not clinically observed by me, convincing enough to me...to , where the grading report is "very clean," and where clouds are notably mentioned...
