So update: I decided not to get it since the seller was being very unprofessional. When I converted the USD amount to RMB, he tried to charge me an extra USD300. When I sent him bank conversions, he then sent me screenshots from Whatsapp in which he was showing the gem to other people, before saying to me "if people know a buyer is giving me a hard time, they'll help out." I adore the color, but I personally just found this level of unprofessionalism very off-putting, and tbh, it broke my trust.
Usually I ask what is the local currency amount they are looking for, and then give the equivalent. So if it’s like a million rupees (just an example), I try make sure the end amount the vendor gets is that amount, regardless of what currency I used to convert to rupees.
Like say if I am expecting SGD1500... I would expect someone transferring the money to me to give me 1500 and not 1400 because that’s what their bank converts their currency amount to. Do to others what you expect others to do to you.
If you are still looking then you will struggle to come across another stone like this. Stunning. And within your budget I believe.
Stunning isn’t it. If only I hadn’t already got dozens of unset stones and spent way over my gem budget this year already!
RMB-USD has been fairly steady! I really don't understand what his deal was, like?? And then after I said no, he spammed me on Instagram omg. I had to block him across all platforms.
