    You should be able to see it even if you don’t have an account? I think. I’m new to IG.

    Not on IG, and I just saw it and it IS beautiful in the video............but............I also live where the light can be different and color behaviors can be different than what is seen on video's. I imagine you could ask for an exception to the restocking fee and have a flat restocking fee like $50.....worst he could do is say no, and not get a sale at all.

    I was able to view the video but the $240 fee is much too steep for me. I’ll sleep on it but probably won’t pull the trigger.

    What happened for me is that I wanted a ring the minute I saw it after the royal wedding. I’ve been sitting on this about a month o_O

    I even tried buying a cheap brooch

    (Looks better in person)...

    But I can’t stop thinking about an eventual ring. At least it’s over lol. Hopefully, I’ll like the aqua from Finewater (I love my sapphire from Gary).

    I’ll keep you all posted.

    I am interested in thoughts on the video from the other one.

    The aqua from Clearcut is beautiful, but if he wants my $1600, I better not be seeing any inclusions.

    Oh, I was tempted by the one you have bought as well! I would love to see how it turns out once you have set it and even see hand shots in between

    Congratulations on your new stone

    I find this one really beautiful!! I have seen it on IG. Unfortunately it’s absolutely over my budget. I hope, a PSer buys it.

    Honestly it seems like an insane price for an aqua. Am I wrong ?

    I don’t know, it’s quite big, and nice colored big clean aquas are rare.

    I think it is the color that is causing the higher price.

    It if was more like $1100 I would have been more interested.

    UPS failed in their overnight delivery (things happen) and then they said it would be delivered by 10:30 am this morning. It wasn’t. I left to go out of town for the weekend around 11 and so it has been delivered to my home, received by my kids and placed on my dresser.

    I’ll see it Sunday night. Gary from Finewater has been perfect with this blip— very attentive and tried to get ups to work it out. They had better give him a refund for overnight shipping.

    Oh, bummer! Waiting is frustrating and not fun.

    Larry at clearCutgems put another video on his 3,5 carat on IG. I commented that some people were interested but the restock fee is high. He replied that was strange because he never had a restock fee. So I clarified that it is on his website.

    So if anyone is still interested in seeing the 3.5 carat; apparently there is no restock fee on it.
