I know everyone on here really dislikes IGI/EGL or really any other besides GIA or AGS. I know if a lot of reputable posters say this, then everyone else will repeat that. Does anyone have a stone that has been graded by both to actually have proof? Or is it heresay? I am not disagreeing with anyone. I just wish I had proof to really see if there is a difference. I have even seen people say that a IGI could be 3 or 4 grades off! That seems very excessive. I would not mind buying an IGI if I knew that they were *maybe* off by 1 or possibly 2 (if the price would be fair for the lower grade) I have an IGI graded stone that multiple jewelers have looked at, and agree with the IGI cert. Now, I have not sent it off to GIA, as I think it would be pointless to spend the money, just to have a comparison...
