More questions! Was this stone cut for you and you had to take your chances? Or did they have reports that you could browse through before committing? I'm guessing things are a little tricky returning overseas so I'm just wondering how the process worked. Thanks!
I could have done it either way, but I went with one that was already cut and had a report. I was lucky that they had something close to my desired specs in my price range.

I wouldn’t have assumed that an OEC would be so hard to recreate!
I figure it's either an exclusive contracting agreement for some designs (ie they may cut lab diamonds for another vendor that sells them) or a size issue. I asked them about a variety of cuts in <1ct size so that I could pick.

What I was told was they were having serious issues cutting it correctly and the cut results in a lot of waste material.

I’ve ordered quite a few Moissanite rings and stones from Tianyu and ended up selling them as I could tell it’s not a diamond. Does this stone really look like a diamond? I know it’s MMD - but are you truly happy with the stone? @mrsgreeneyes

Yes! I absolutely love the stone and it looks just like a diamond, because it is one! I was having the same issue with moissanite, at a certain size the optics were not the same and it was bugging me. I still own plenty of moissanite pieces, but for my main stone I wanted a 2ct diamond. And since I have champagne taste on a beer budget, the lab diamond has been perfect for me. :)

Did they send you stone videos and the certificate to compare?

I did look at several of their stones before this one became available. I didn’t pull the trigger on the others because they either didn’t meet my color or carat criteria, and one was a very meh cut.

I wanted to go with them but the only ~2ct rounds they had scored very poorly on HCA and had crap crown angles

Hello, I am very interested in knowing what the ordering process is for you as well! I am actually looking for almost the exact same thing, but when I contacted Tianyu they told me they didn't have anything in stock, but gave me quotes for a few different sizes.

Did they custom make/cut the diamond for you?
If so, did you pay or leave a deposit up front?
What would have happened if they did custom make for it, but you were not happy with the diamond they made? Are they willing to do it again, or are you committed to the first one they make?
I've asked Tianyu these questions but they didn't answer me properly, maybe its a language barrier but they just said I could get an IGI certificate if I wanted

I am worried that if I have them make a custom diamond for me and it turns out bad then I'm stuck with it

I had the same exact issue. Essentially what I got from it was you are stuck with it unless you have a jeweler that proves it does not match the IGI, irregardless if you aren’t happy with it.

It is beautiful! I contacted her, but the prices I'm getting are similar to Yadav, so I'm not sure it is worth the hassle of going out of the country.
