Hi tj,

I don't have any experience with them personally, but since this thread has gone unanswered thus far I thought I'd point you to a couple of other threads that mention them...





One thing you may want to keep in mind while considering your purchase is that they are "diamond brokers" (proudly, according to the site), meaning that they don't own their inventory and basically act as an intermediary between the consumer and the diamond wholesalers. This is very common and isn't something to be concerned about in itself, but it also means that the exact same diamond they have is likely also available from several other sources, so if there is any question about their honesty it may be quite easy to get the diamond from a vendor you're more comfortable with. I haven't done any extensive research on them, but I agree with other comments in the threads listed that their two-day inspection period is quite short and adds a layer of difficulty regarding making an informed and comfortable decision.

Hope this helps...

-Tim

Tim,

Thanks a bunch...I think I'll stick with the companies on pricescope. They were extremely nice on the phone and seem to promise everything, which made me a little uncomfortable.
