Well I didn''t have a loupe at the time so I took it to have it looked at and found out that it has a LOT of fractures. So wouldn''t that effect the light display? I think it was mounted so that it would minimize it but still....

Then on top of that (ok I''ll fess up - it''s an eBay ring) it was supposed to be a 1 carat and ended up being a 3/4 carat. He offered me $100.00 for the missing 1/4 carat


It''s going back in the morning. The seller wasn''t happy and started making noises about a 15% restocking fee after all his promises about his cheerful refund policy if not fully satisfied. I told him I''d be happy to file a chargeback with my bank in the morning and he changed his tune.

Well it was only $1,000. but still. It''s not a bad looking stone but not something I want to blow $1,000. on.

OTOH I received an unmounted Hastings triplet yesterday. Can I buy a elcheapo loupe and pop the old glass out and mount my triplet in there? They look kind of solid so I don''t know if that would work. Any ideas?

ebay ebay ebay - search engines please find this ebay ebay ebay.


The search for something for nothing often results in not much for something.
Glad it seems you might get your money back, although I would use the bank cancellation as I would wager in a months time you will still be fighting the check in the mail syndrome.

As for the loupe - find a card board tube or make one and secure it with sticky tape.

Here''s the diamond. I guess you can only post one picture?

That cardboard tube is going to look pretty funny in my pocket. Are you saying I''m cheap?

I buy lots of diamonds on eBay. This is really not a bad diamond - just not a keeper by my standards.
