That seems very reasonable to me, especially given the quality of DK’s work. it will be a much better ring and diamond than if it was purchased through Zales, who I imagine is even charging a higher price.DKJ is offering $1150 for the ring mounting without the center will cost in 14k gold with G color VS clarity round brilliant diamonds.
I just need to provide a 0.25ct center stone.
Is this a decent enough deal? Should I ask them to go lower on color?!
It’s much cheaper because the center diamond isn’t lab graded, so the center diamond and melee diamonds are probably poor quality and my guess Is the setting is also of poor quality. Just because it’s 14k gold doesn’t mean it is well made. Probably has messy metalwork and subpar prongs securing the stones. The setting and diamonds are of much lower quality than you would get from DK. You get what you pay for. It sounds like this isn’t meant to be a sentimental piece, so maybe the eBay find is good enough you. Personally, I’d spring on the extra cash for a well made piece though. GLDThoughts on these stats?
Thanks! It is really cute and appears to be well made. I’m tempted to take it to a jeweler and find out if it is real 14k gold. I’m just SO afraid of being duped/scammed online but this is the first jewelry I buy off of eBay and they did have excellent reviews to be honest.I love the hearts in the setting!
I'm curious what a duplicate certificate means?
He did reply back to me so I don’t feel too worried actually. I am mainly concerned about 14k WG & also the “duplicate cert”Take it to a pawn shop. They can test it for diamonds and gold karat. Most ebayers with good feedback can be trusted. I wouldn’t be too concerned.
