I have requested that your thread be moved to that forum. Hopefully, some Aussies can help you over there. I know a lot of
PSers order stones from other countries without any issues. Not sure how it works for Australia though (import fees ect.)
Anyway, they should be able to help you over there!
HI there. I am in Perth too. There are some Perth based brokers who can bring in lab stones for you but I bought mine via the US. It depends if you feel comfortable doing that. Otherwise your best best is Novita Diamonds who can at least do a remove inspection with you perhaps from Melbourne and go from there.
Have you looked at Lavana Diamonds? Actually, they seem to be out-of-state too.
Hey fellow Perth-ite, and thanks!! Did you have the stone by itself shipped, or did you have it set in a ring and then shipped? I have looked atbut I don’t understand how much tax I’d be paying to ship a ring across.
Do you know which brokers will bring in lab diamonds? I’ve also looked at Novita, there’s a beautiful I coloured one but I then went down a rabbit hole on here looking up IGI and seemingly the American IGI are loose with their gradings (most Novita lab diamonds have USA IGI reports) so the I may be a K/L. I think I’ve read too much and confused myself
