I got a call from one of the my nephews a week ago asking me to help him persue the perfect marquise diamond for his FF. Always happy to spend other peoples money, I was up for the challenge. After making a few calls to several vendors, I decided to click on one of thebanners here on Pricescope.............and the search was OVER! In fact, it seemed effortless! I called and spoke to a gentlemen named Darin. We discussed 4 different marquise diamonds that I looked at on the site. We narrowed it down to 2............and then to "THE ONE". This was actually the one that I personally felt was a winner. I know Marquise diamonds are not the most popular shape to true diamond lovers as they are classified as "so 1980's"...but I have to say the diamond left both my nephew and I BREATHLESS. Imagine how faint he is going to feel after he receives it back from Leon Mege in it's classic 3 stone setting with pear sidestones. (but I will leave that for another thread!!
8.82 x 4.57x 2.90
ratio: 1.93 P.S. I think that is awesome that the website will let you view the diamond in question. That was what made this process so much easier.
