We went to a "wholesaler" in Downtown Los Angeles today and this is what he gave me.


1.31 Round Cut
H
Si 1
EGL Cert
Ideal Cut

$5,200


1. Is that a good price?

2. On a GIA cert, how much discount off the Rapaport Price List is considered good. From what I''ve seen, most retailers give 20% off. Is that normal? Should I be asking for 30%. Let me know! Thanks everyone!

3. In terms of price, how much more does a GIA cert cost. For example, the same exact specifications on a Diamond, GIA vs EGL. How much more will a GIA diamond cost?

Let me know! Thanks everyone!

EGL Ideal Cut can be somthing broad. Can you post measurements, table, depth, crown, pavilion, girdle, culet, symmetry and polish? What about fluorescence?

I checked internet prices (no cut restrictions) - from $4,500 to $6,000 for EGL graded stones and from $5,000 to $7,000 for GIA.

Your price could be good if the stone is not misgraded.

It depends on cut quality. Average cut stones with GIA report could be bought for 20%-30% off. Ideal cut diamonds - 0%-10% off

According to my stats, EGL graded stones cost 10% less.
