Classic Forum Acronyms:

OTOH: On The Other Hand
AFAIK: As far as I Know
YMMV: Your Mileage May Vary
TLA: Three Letter Acronym

Some of the abbreviations given are not Pricescope slang as they are used on multiple boards on the internet. The Pricescope ones I would say are like LM, MWM for designer jewellers, IS Idealscope, diamond abbreviations etc.

TIA 4 ur advise.


WF has an H&A ACA with IS, ASET and Sarin on PS that my FIL likes for a MWM WG RHR for his SO. JA has a stone with better CA/PA according to HCA and AGA that OGI calls AGS-0 but it only has a GIA DQR with M-TK girdle and M blue FL. It’s XXX

but not 000


FWIW, the SA at the B&M says JA is really DCD and that he should only buy AGS. AFAIK he’s going to LI NY to see GoG to get a BS and a DC.


I think he should buy a BMW instead. KWIM?

DQR = Diamond Quality Report (It's what AGS calls their standard grading report instead of 'certificate')
DQD = Diamond Quality Document (the AGS report with cut grade information on it)

eta: GIA actually calls theirs a Diamond Grading Report or a Diamond Dossier so there's really no such thing as a GIA DQR.

What is OEC? I always associate it with an old miners cut but that "E" throws me off...
