When I search, the results are dominated by Bluenile stones, with some occasional whiteflash, USA cert, and James Allen stones.

I do not see a single B2C stone in the virtual selection.
However B2C stones dominate in-house/vetted category. But the stones are badly cut (VG) and it is hard to believe those are actually in-house stones
Is it just me? problem with the search engine?

I think it has to do with the election approaching. The search engine is "RIGGED"!

Hi Pig. That’s odd and we need to look into it.

Also odd. We recently adjusted how diamonds appear in the searches but it should be the OPPOSITE of what you are describing. Knowing the PS emphasis on cut quality and bargains, the parameters of diamonds appearing in the search should be a mix of better cut options, along with aggressively priced options across a wide range of quality. Relative to cut, you should have seen an uptick in quality, not a down-tick.

Looking into it. Thank you for pointing this out.
