by BreenCP » Feb 8, 2001 I've recently visited about 5 jewelers in my neighboorhood and have found their prices to be about double of those listed from several of the online vendors here at pricescope for diamonds of the exact same 4-C characteristics. These local jeweler's swear they pay way more than the prices here and that they could't go anywhere near those prices. Then I hear the famous "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is..." line. Here's what I'm looking at....50ct VS1 H (4.40x4.14x3.31mm) Jeweler: $2,339 PriceScope: $922-$1,205.52ct VS2 E (4.61x3.99x3.24mm) Depth 81.2% Table 85% Jeweler: $2,700 PriceScope: $1,255 - $1,586How are these prices possible? I went to a total of 5 jewelers with printouts of PriceScope's prices and they all said "NO WAY!" I would very much like to take advantage of these great online prices but I'm so afraid it will turn out to be "too good to be true"Any replies would be greatly appreciated.
