Where did you find this diamond? I'm not coming up with all that much in the way of price comparisons for you.

Well, it probably is fine. It's harder to say without a Sarin report which gives crown and pavilion angles. It may be difficult to get someone to provide that information to you on this kind of purchase. I noticed that they have a 7 day return policy. You will want to make sure that it is enough time to get an independent appraiser to look at the diamond. I don't know much about this vendor.

Hello Jax,

I bought my 1ct diamond at diamondsatcost.com

My overall experience was excellent. I found a diamond
that closely matched what I was looking for using their
search engine. I contacted them via aol messenger and
Martin (owner)found me a better cut diamond for less
price than the one I saw on their website.

Martin is able to search his inventory before it comes online
and he got me yet a better deal than those diamonds in the website.

Of course I also checked his company at bbb.org
before making my decision. My appraiser said I did
an excellent job picking up the stone/price

Now about your diamond...
How much lower can you go for a GIA certified diamond?
My understanding is that certifying a diamond with GIA itself
costs the dealers about $200 bucks! (including cost of taking
the diamond off the market until certified, etc.)

Now the diamond looks to me within Tolkowsky Ideal Cut (Depth%
60.1-62.8% Table%53-57%)proportions, G color, and GIA certificate
for under $300 bucks? I say go for it!

Note: that the website shows 7 day return policy, you can work this out with Martin in case you need more time.
