The first stone I ordered had an old cert so I took it to a local jeweler with the cert to have them confirm that the stone matched the cert. They did it for free while I stood there.Date: 1/5/2007 2:22:34 PM
One more question with regards to second appraisal / comparison to GIA report.
Would one show the stone and the gia appraisal together or only the stone?

Thanks so much if you were closer I would definitely take the stone to you..I guess I have to make sure they have colorimeter or SAS machine ( whatever that is?) Many thanks..
I also prefer to perform my own analysis first, without looking at the diamond grading report.
Any differences can be explained but usually a consumer wants an independent confirmation of
their purchase or pending purchase.
