Just so there shouldn''t be any confusion i''m a vendor and I''d like to understand better the concept of getting a separate appraisal/verification for customer requests..how does it work? say a customer from out of new york (if they''re in NY i just go with them to the GIA or EGLUSA lab) wants to buy a diamond but wants to get a third-party appraiser. I''m not about to ship a diamond without having the full dollar amount of it in my bank account so how could i send to a non-affiliated appraiser out there in yahopitzville? from some of the posts i''ve seen on here it seems that there is some sort of third-party appraisal system in place even before the stone is payed for...?? can anyone enlighted me? much appreciated.
