It looks like you both agee on my situation. I''m dealing with a wholesaler in Atlanta recommended by a friend of mine. He quoted me 25% rapaport. I realize this does not take into account the cut. How do I know when I''m getting a good deal? how much would I pay in a jewelry store?(Tiffany, etc..) is 25% under rapaport a good deal?(assuming a good cut) I don''t have to have the very best deal, I just don''t want to get ripped off.
