Hi,

Thanks so much for reading. I've been reading some of the postings and find the threads very interesting. I thought got a good deal on a pair of earrings, but after reading about reflection..I'm not sure that is what it was called, I'm starting to doubt my purchase.

I bought a pair of diamond earrings about a year ago from BB&B, below are the details:

First Diamond
AGS Certified
Round Brilliant
5.99-6.06 x 3.72
Cut Grade - AGS Ideal 0
Color Grade - AGS 2.0 (H)
Clairty Grade - AGS 3 (VS1)
Carat Weight - 0.822

Second Diamond
AGS Certified
Round Brilliant
6.10-6.13 x 3.73
Cut Grade - AGS Ideal 0
Color Grade - AGS 1.5 (G)
Clarity Grade - AGS 4 (VS2)
Carat Weight - 0.835

The earring are set in Platinum with screw backs.

I paid 9K for the set. Did I make a good purchase? Any help would be appreciated. Please be kind, I don't want to feel like to much of a heel if I made a bad purchase.

Diamonds sound very nice.

Sorry if it'd upset you but you could save a bit buying similar earrings from the internet. You could get similar stones for less than $4,000 each and the plattinum setting would cost you $300.

Do not be upset though and enjoy them.

Thanks for the reply. One thing I forgot to mention.

They are from the Lazare collection and have been inscribed on the girdle. Does that matter to price or re-sellability?

Thanks again
Mike

There are two reason to inscribe a stone:

1. To brand it

2. To make it easy to identify.

The first may or may not have value, I am not sure, depends on the brand. It would not to me.

The second also has no value since it is normal practice to use the inclusion map on the certificate and the weight plus dimensions to identify a stone. Kindof like using a fingerprint on a person instead of tattooing them with their social security number.

But it does not hurt either.

Seems like it could be replaced for $8,000 online. You did not get ripped off at all, and you bought some really nice cuts. It was a fine purchase, maybe 10 to 12%% more than online prices but that is to be expected with B&M.

This explains higher price.

May be but I'm not sure.

Thanks for the feedback. I feel a little better. My wife looks like a princess when she wears them. They are set very low in their settings so they ride perfectly on her ears. Thanks again for all the comments.
