Can you look up the AGSL report and see if it got AGS000?

Not a gemologist to comment on proportions but I do find it very appealing in the video (though the tint isn’t to my personal liking).

Thank you, MsShnooks. I'm not very smart with any brilliant cut. Glad you hear you found it appealing. The color doesn't bother me in the least. I would enjoy a J.

Hey there!

My friend was choosing between this and a 0.9c color K.. in the exact same cut back in early Dec... She ended up with the 0.9c.


However, she will be unable to advise you on how it looks like in real life.. This is because after 1 month.. it still hasn't arrived in US.

Apparently it is a virtual inventory and needs to be shipped to US. Hence.. Be prepared to wait very long if you are getting this.

Just getting them to call me is taking hours. Good gravy. But your friend's .90 looks killer. Let us know what she thinks, please.

Did you manage to speak to them? She just told me... No news yet. Ya I am also waiting eagerly for hers to arrive.. As she is a first time JA buyer.. And used my referal code.. This was why I was so involved in the process.

Are you getting this one too? She said she is keen to see yours too when yours arrived! :D

she had a hard time deciding these 2.. but ended up with the bigger one.

Haven't bought it yet, 10 p.m. talked to a nice woman who'd "never seen one like that" and couldn't tell me where the feather is. I tried B2C but Simon said he can't get this diamond, some agreement with the vendor and JA. He also told me, " Honestly, it seems that the diamond you are looking at might be the best deal in the market. Not sure why, but it's priced much lower than all other similar diamonds. I will still continue to look around and let you know if I find something similar or better for you." This is why I'm loyal to B2C and am very nervous about JA.

What a coincidence, I was wondering if I should buy from JA instead of B2C. :lol-2:

OMG, I am so angry. Buying that Radiant from JA was 4 calls and endless chats. Now they're asking for a business email and several selfies with my credit card! Are you serious?? I called tonight, said I've bought 2 diamonds from Brian Gavin, 2 from Brilliance and 3 from B2C. No one ever asked for this. I've been at this address since 1986. If my approved credit card charge is not enough, keep your diamond. JA - NEVER AGAIN.

Omg.. Why would they do that? I have purchased X2 from JA.. As an overseas buyer.. Everything is smooth.. But I had used bank wire to get more discounts

I would love to know. I pay my bills every month. Either they charge my card and ship it or . . . I have revenge in my heart right now. I work a job I hate so I can pay my bills and buy a few things. JA just crapped on me.

oh dear, this really takes the joy away from purchasing the diamond you would love to own. :(2 .

Maybe you can try to ask for Lauren Wilcox from JA? If i remember correctly, she is a supervisor and might be a better position to explain/advise you.

I encountered a similar experience (with their purchase platform) with Brian Gavin and ended up abandoning my purchase!

Btw my friend just texted me that JA informed her diamond will probably takes 2-3 weeks more to reach her...if you are still keen, i will try to get some photos from her.

Yes, joyless and irritating. But if my money's the wrong color green for JA, there will be other unicorns. Elsewhere. I did check to see if it's still on their website, half expecting to see it for sale again but marked way up.

Funny you mention Brian Gavin. I bought a .30 of his own rounds and later a 1.77 Asscher from his virtual. So I'm signed up and plugged in with BGD and yet I had the worst time paying for that Asscher. I had Leslie on the phone with me and while she was gracious, I was so intimidated. A year later I tried to have them set it in a Sholdt solitaire and they were going to charge me several 100s to set it, over the price of the setting itself. That's when I backed away, haven't gone back.

I think the radiant you found is beautiful. But I would say that because I have one similar :D This type of radiant really does perform and you get a lot of fire as well as white light.

I hear you on the aggravation about JA's payment processes, I have certainly encountered that myself. But, my understanding is that their onerous procedures are are in place to provide additional security for credit card purchases and not necessarily because they have concerns over your credit rating. They have obviously had issues with credit card fraud on international purchases at some point or another and are trying to prevent future issues.

Not that I'm trying to advocate for JA in any way - I have my frustrations with them too sometimes - but it would be a shame for you to miss out on what could be a really good purchase. They do sometimes have amazing stones that just arent available anywhere else.

diamondhoarder, thank you for your kind response and encouragement. Maybe I'm just too old and too old-school, but if you doubt my veracity, call me and ask how long with my present employer? (15 years) How long have I owned this house? (35 years, property taxes are public records) Maryland to Wisconsin is hardly international. I'm not giving out my company email address, I work in healthcare and any access is inappropriate.

Glad to learn you think this diamond is beautiful. And whose ring was in front of me as I shopped??? I thought, I won't find perfection as she did, but maybe I can get a smaller version that's appealing. I have an Asscher of the same exact size and I want to make slightly mismatched earrings.
