    Can A Diamond Be Re-cut?

    Hello All.. I thought i'd stop back and give you thr results. I'm starting to see why all the 'Brick and Morters' are slamming the online places. They (the B&Ms) are SOOO overpriced it rediculous. I did receive the ring...a week later I sold it to a B&M for $6250 (It would have been a 3k profit except I had to pay sales tax fro the guy I bought it from). The B&M flat out told me he was selling back to his wholesaler. So basicly I sold a diamond to a jewler (at a 3k profit) who sold it to a wholesaler (no idea how much) who intern will sell it to another jewler..who intern will sell it retail and in this process..EVERYONE is making cash No wonder I had you guys telling my 'whatever you do.. DON'T send the cash!' I have sence purchased 2 more rings (ALOT smaller) and made a nice little profit on each one Good luck to all in your little side business is going quite nicely

    With all due respect to DBL and others…I’m not sure how you could condemn someone or their business without ever purchasing from them. They offer a 14 day no questions ask return policy and NO restocking fee. DBL.. you claim to sell ‘Millions a year’ on ebay. You have 27 positive feedback this year..the only 2 in the last month were for $700 and $1500. That means the other 25 transaction would have had to average 40K each to achieve you ‘millions’.. I think you better check your math You have 422 + feedback @ 100%..he has 5735+ @ 100% You ring is .2 ring..not set.. 2 ratings lower in clarity.. the same color but $13,000 (over 400%) more than I paid. And yours come with NO Cert or rating. At least I get something from him. Somehow I don’t think that ‘You Tube’ video is worth 13k Judging by feedback alone he has had 20X the repeat customers you have had. He’s been selling on ebay for 5 year.. you 8 years (53 VS 1033) I wish you well in your business..they way you do math.. you’ll need it Kinda funny how defensive you get when you get slammed.

    I knew this would happen. Once 'Ebay' was brought up the topic would change.. and the focus would be on where and how I bought my ring insted of the question at hand If ya wanna look at feedback this guy has 6700 total feed back and a rating of 5700. That mean he has over 1000 repeat customers. Looks like it off to the next forum...i'll be sure not to mention ebay

    Can A Diamond Be Re-cut?

    Thanks for the reply…there’s a couple reasons why I ask this question. I purchased the Diamond on Ebay (yeah.. I know.. let me have it) item number 260186413670. I feel I got an extremely good deal (I paid $3250 set in 14k gold). It was from a seller (AJDiamonds) with 5700+ feedback, a 100% rating and has been selling since 2003.. After the auction (and it was a true reserve) he emailed me saying although he personally paid almost 3x for the stone.. he will honor the sale. I did do some research before hand as I know nothing about Diamond. Most peeps say color is more important than clarity. After ready a few actual post I’m starting to learn that the cut makes the stone. The stone is ‘independently appraised’ by an unknown company for almost 38k. The weight was a 3.5…color F and Clarity Si3 and was 9.59x.9.57x5.91 Before I bid\bought I spent a couple hours reading about half of his feedback. He had a lot of (and I mean a lot) ‘Diamond didn’t appraise nearly as high but still got a great deal.’ It seems the general consensus from feedback left is that other buyer were finding their rocks appraising about 60% of what the sellers said. The seller also offers full refund up to 14 days after the auction. Judging by feedback left by others..he honors this as it has been referenced a bunch of times Even if it only appraises at 50% I think I’m still a head of the game 19k VS the $3250 I paid). So..If the stone is cut poorly…is it feasible to have it re-cut at a decent price even if I loose a half carrot or so? I’m thinking if I loose .5 carrot and have to pay a grand or so to have it recut..I would still be WAY a head of the game Of course.. I could be totally wrong as I said before..I know NOTHING about this stuff Thanks again!
