Consider me a diamond rookie before you proceed :)

Is it feasible for a canadian(toronto) to buy a diamond from the US?

are there any canadian sites that can offer the high quality/great prices that all the US sites can offer?

I am kind of reluctant to buy from canada and am really considering making a trip to the US to purchase a ring....am I crazy.

I am considering a high quality ~1.0ct. round or princess cut diamond, on one of the vatche surprise diamon X prong settings.

For starters I don't know of any one offering the vatche rings in Canada....am I wrong?

can someone give me some guidance so i make the right decision!!!
where do I start?

Thanks,
T.O.guy

Hi, T.O.guy,

Try www.usacerteddiamonds.com. I know the name sounds misleading, but they are based outside of Toronto. My fiance and I got our diamond from them; Martin and his staff are very helpful and professional.

Good luck!

Welcome T.O.guy.

When you're bringing a diamond to Canada you pay 10% excise tax + GST+PST = 25%.

Talk to Martin Sheffield (USACertedDiamonds.com) he's in Thornhill.

Hi guys,

went out today to a local jeweler for some quotes etc....

he had 2 diamonds available to show me, both princess cut:

#1
--
size: 0.92
clarity: vs2
color: G
cut: very good
price: $5500(CAN)

#2
--
size: 1.22
clarity: vs2
color: F
cut: good
price: $8000(CAN)

both diamonds had these specs on the reports from i believe gem stone labs (or something like that)

any thoughts on these??

thanks for the help in advance
