Sounds too good to be true... 3.13 N/SI1 for 2K!

Let me preface that I am not actively looking for a diamond, but just for fun was searching the listings. There is a 3.13 N/SI1 strong blue fluorescence for sale for barely over $2K, with GIA cert:
http://www.solomonbrothers.com/DiamondDetail.aspx?sku=4H3H355H&affiliate=9318613A-AD0C-4530-A456-0409DFEFB8DE

And, the cert only shows a prongable crystal and a small indented natural!
I seriously thought it was a typo. It might not be an ideal cut, but maybe someone on this board who enjoys warmer colors will snatch it up! Coupled with the SB fluorescence it sounds like an elusive combination. As I said, I wasn't actively looking, but this has the potential to make an awesome RHR or pendant!

Hmmm....it might be very cloudy from the strong fluor...but I would think the GIA would consider that in clarity grading....hmmm....

I too wonder why so cheap. They deal in diamonds professionally, so they know that diamond is worth way way more. I may call tomorrow and find out!

Must be a price error. In addition they reserve the right to correct.
No red flags with that diamond that i can see that would justify such a low price.

Blame it on the eggnog, but I just ordered this thing. I have a confirmation email in my inbox, so we will see come tomorrow what happens. For this price, and with a liberal return policy, why not? And if it's not a complete dog, merry Christmas to me in the form of a new pendant! (that being said, I am curious, but I don't have my hopes up about this at all...!)

Go DeeJay! I can't wait to see it! I hope it glows!
P.S. I met a guy from the Solomon family the other week at a Hanukkah party, nice guy. He was like, "No kidding, seriously you've heard of our little business?"

LOL -- you guys are such enablers!!!

Seriously, this seems way too good to be true, so we will see what happens...

Oh, and BTW, did I mention I in no way, shape or form need another piece of jewelry!?!

If you do a search, Abazias lists the same diamond (same Gia certificate number) for $17,252. So it sounds like it is a typo.

Honestly, my gut feeling is that I will get an email telling me the price was an error and then this little adventure will be over...

Hello Gypsy! Have been doing a bit of lurking, but not much posting lately. Hope all is well with you!!!

And for the rest of you naughty little enablers, if this thing does show up and is at all decent you will have to supply me with setting ideas...!

But USA Certed has it listed for $2289.

So 2 out of 3 vendors listing the diamond have it for just over $2000, whilst the third vendor has it at over $17000. I dont see 2 different vendors making a typo on the same diamond for around the same amount.

Would love to know the outcome on this DeeJay. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

I have visited them several times. They had an amazing setting, platinum with diamond sidestones, for about $500. There was no reason it should have been so cheap. They could not explain it. So, yes, I know from firsthand experience that Solomon Bros. does offer the occasional incredible deal that does not seem logical.

I haven't received any sort of communication, other than the intial order confirmation I got last night, so I'm not sure what's going on...
