    It seems like Ve and Vile has put up the same diamond in their inventory. I took a look after the Founder emailed me about their new stock of fancy colors. The particular stone I tried to purchase with the same IGI report is back but listed at over 2k. I’m disappointed they didn’t just tell me it was incorrectly priced on the website when issuing me a refund, and said instead it was out of stock. While the new price for this stone is way overpriced there are very reasonable prices for larger blue diamonds. It’s too bad I don’t trust the store for now, and as it is, with larger purchases I’m inclined to purchase lab diamonds that are made in the states.

    I think they (Ve and Vile) are just trying to get that database organized since this was a new area for them but it seems to be better now. Some of them are cheaper than the US and some are not. It depends on where they are coming from.

    I bought two 1/2 carat modern rounds for a 3 stone ring project. This is not my main e-ring but I am working on a few colored stone projects with different budgets for each. The lab diamonds are a ‘J’ VS1 excellent cut. I wanted them warm because they are going in yellow gold with a lemon yellow tourmaline. Unfortunately, the post office broke the tip off my tourmaline so it has to get recut slightly to minimize the window or I will have to pick a new stone. Impressions are that the diamonds have a lot of fire. They look much nicer than an old pair of .50 carat each earrings that I have. A little warmer than a G solitaire pendant I have that is H&A

    I don’t want to clog up this thread with a bunch of pics so I am going to include some imgur links. There are a lot of comparisons but not everyone sees a moissanite next to a lab diamond and mined diamond so I thought I would share those too.

    Here is one of the cert’s. If I did it correctly, it scores a 1.2 on the HCA.

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    https://www.stuller.com/lab-grown-diamonds/

    Looks like a decent listing engine - pic/video, information, but no price unless you log in (which I'm not sure us mere consumers are able to do - but I've not tried so don't know for sure!)

    Their ECs looked nicely cut in the videos I looked at :) but they weren't listing asschers, boooo :(
