    The stone will be an absolute beauty! For Sure. Your also getting a lot of bang for the buck. Even without knowing what you paid, because it says SOLD. GIA: G/VS2 (with that make) - is pretty much purrrrfect. Good choice.

    Opinions On This Diamond - Good Quality?

    I know the OP is long gone... Generally all CE diamonds start off as SI2-I1-I2 in the hopes that the treatment either (FF or LD) will make them appear to be VS with the unaided eye. Regardless of the treatment the internal clarity issues will still be present via a 10x loupe. There is no clarity enhanced stone that would ever be considered VS after the procedure. Laser drilling: is commonly used to remove small dark inclusions. The laser bores a small hole into the diamond’s interior and burns away the inclusion, or creates a channel through which a bleaching agent can be introduced to improve the inclusion’s appearance. Fracture Filling: Original Yehuda compound - Circa 1982 - Pb (lead), Bi (bismuth), B (boron), O (oxygen) and Cl (chloride) * P.S. I believe current compound: Molten Lead Glass

    Looking For A Natural Pink Diamond

    Intrestingly enough my mother was born in Israel, and my father Ukraine. They both speak/spoke multiple laguagages. Father passed in 2008. I can barley speak one well. I remember in high school spanish class; I would ask the pretty spanish girl for the answers to the test questions. (Yes I cheated) quite often. Language just ain't my thang...

    Re-Cut Or Re-Polish Vintage Engagement Ring

    1. Diamonds are billions of years old. Not hundreds... 2. The setting pictured is not 200 years old. Not even close. More like 60-70 years max. 3. Diamonds need to be cleaned; Shine is direct result of cut. Not color, or clarity unless very included. P.S. To me the stone looks grey, cloudy, and lacks life....Good luck.

    buying a diamond ring in a pawn shop

    Whats wrong with lawnmowers and bowling balls.
  19. My partner recently purchased a silver necklace among others things that simply was not that important or valuable. Assessed; and worth its weight in precious metal right around $7.00 USD. The necklace was crafted in 925/1000 sterling silver and housed a large light blue faceted gem. Emerald/ stepped cut stone….Aquamarine, No way! Topaz probably...ad least I thought! Aquamarines of this size, color, and clarity would have been worth many thousands of dollars, and highly unlikely mounted in common/everyday Mexican Silver with no/name. This is where I’m at gemologically speaking: Gemstone un-known? What do you guys think it is…? 52.56CT 1.515 RI 2.496 SG 6-6.5 MOHS Double Refractive: No; it’s single Fluorescence: Inert Vitreous: No Size: 29.13mm x 19.52mm x 11.86 Facet junctions rounded, not sharp. Some air bubbles throughout, some microscopic some eye visible. All perfectly round. Slight variations in color top position, light blue to bluish green; like some aquamarine. Vitreous; Not really glass like. More dull in luster. Clarity: VVS -Outside of air-bubbles. ​Transparency: Excellent. External blemishes: Chips to faceting junctions, and Girdle.
