I have reserved a diamond on a reputable website (recommended here several times). The diamond was listed under the AGS stones with a link to the certificate. When I clicked on the link a GIA certificate openened up.
The price is quite reasonable compared to other GIA diamonds.

The same diamond was listed on Blue Nile as well so it must be a wholesaler listing. Am I getting a good deal due to a mistake in listing or am I getting suckered? Any advice would help for a (hopefully soon to be engaged) diamond novice.

Hi James - Can you provide the specs and price for the stone? I don't think anyone can truly tell you what kind of deal you're getting w/o knowing this information.

James,

Price sounds ok. Just make sure the diamond doesn't look cloudy or milky because of the strong fluorescence.

Otherwise, strong blue fluorescence should help with I color.

Wow, you are getting alot of bang for your buck. It sounds like my kind of stone. As leonid says, check the stone in sunlight.

I'm a fan of blue flour; but, to offer a different perspective, another poster did not like the bluish hue one saw in sunlight.
