by gnuf » Apr 21, 2009 So I''ve spent some time on Pricescope and looked around on the web and am trying to put it all together. My fiance to be likes the Novo setting, so I wanted to get http://www.jamesallen.com/products/item_412-2047_build.asp?module=setting This setting from James Allen and the diamond from Blue Nile. So of course now I need to get it set. I was considering having it done locally and then have them do the appraisal there as well. How much does this service usually cost? I see JA charges $150 to set the stone and "set up" and appraisal. I''m not sure what that means and am unsure of what a reasonable cost of doing this is. So JA is doing the appraisal for me as well? Am I better off getting this done on my own? And is this appraisal what I take to my insurance company?
