    Appraisals

    I would recommend Rick Lewis, lewisjewelryappraisals.com. He is very thorough and reasonably priced. He also offers a special light performance report. He can meet you at his office near St Joseph's Univ in Philly, or a jewler in Collingswood, NJ.
  2. I would highly recommend whiteflash.com. I bought a 1.0 ct round from their ACA Hearts and Arrows collection. My fiancee and received many complements on it. I spent a long time looking at diamonds, and this was best one that I saw, by far, my independant appraiser agreed. Also if you buy from there and refer someone else or you make another diamond purchase over $1000, they send you $100 as a thank-you gift. If you do decide to buy from whiteflash, please let me know. Other sites I would recommend: uniondiamond.com bluenile.com
  3. Decided to go with Rick Lewis from Lewis Jewelry Appraisal Services. He met me at a location in Collingswood, NJ which was easy for me to get to. Very informative and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone in NJ or Philly area.
  4. I'm trying to decide between a few ACA H&A from WF. I'm looking for a G or H, SI1. I've found a few, but i dont know how to distingish between them, and how to figure out if anyone is any better than another. I could use some help. Check the ones below, or look at other in the same range and let me know what you think, Thank you. http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-636621.htm http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-737788.htm http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-737785.htm http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-737790.htm
  5. I'm looking for some recommendations for reputable independant appraisers in the Souther NJ or DE area. Has anyone gotten one in this area, please let me know. Also let me know an idea of how much it may cost, thank you very much.
  6. Please comment on the specs below, looking at buying this tonight. Its from BB&B at $6500, i know the price is high but send me comments. Round Brilliant Measurements: 6.44 - 6.48 x 3.94 mm Carat Weight: 1.01 Color Grade: E Clarity Grade: SI2 Cut Grade: Excellent Proportions: Depth: 61.0 % Table: 57 % Crown Angle: 34° Crown Height: 14.5 % Pavilion Angle: 41° Pavilion Depth: 43.5 % Star length: 50 % Lower Half: 75 % Girdle: Thin to Slightly Thick Culet: None Finish: Polish: Very Good Symmetry: Very Good Fluorescence: None
  7. I'm looking at a few H&A diamonds. Is the second one worth the extra money? Or should i balance the two and get an H, SI1 somewhere in the middle 1. http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-737786.htm 2. http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-737785.htm
  8. Looks like a great deal to me, i found a 1.25 for the same price with similar specs. EGL is generally not as strict as GIA or AGS so it may be an I color, or a good SI1, but still would be a good deal. Only problem could be thin girdle with such a large stone, get it insured against chippping/cracking.
  9. I'm looking at a couple H&A 1ct diamonds at white flash. http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-737786.htm http://www.whiteflash.com/hearts_arrows/A-...mond-737785.htm Has anyone purchased a H&A from whiteflash before? Are the worth the money over a GIA excellent cut? Is the second one worth the extra money? I'm mainly looking for brilliance and fire. I'm thinking the first one is definately a good deal and will look higher in color b/c of the excellent cut. Tell me what you think. Or i have found a few others that are not H&A Please send me your comments, thanks.
  10. I recently purchased a 1 ct engagement ring from BB&B. I really like the setting, but I am not very happy with the quality of the diamond (GIA: G, SI1, good cut), i'd like a better cut. I'd like to purchase another diamond from somewhere else, perhaps bluenile, to save money and get a better diamond. BB&B has a 30 day return policy. Do you think i can return the BBB diamond and ask to have it swapped out with my own diamond? They might charge me to set the new diamond, but i think it would be worth it. Any advice is appreciated.
