    Real or fake

    My young neice is keen on gems and wanted to surprise her with a diamond. Now im curious to see what comes in the mail. Even if its low grade, I'm sure she will be happy with owning a "pink diamond". Thanks again...

    Real or fake

    Hello all, I was told low quality diamonds such as, pinks are found in various places such as, the Congo. Can anyone tell me if the below example are fake or real as the description states "natural and untreated". Unless someone tells me Congo and other parts of the world do produce low quality pink diamond, then im guessing these are fake but isn't there laws that prohibit this type of false advertising? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F312327202467 Thanks

    Thank you for the feedback. Not really sure what i like at the moment as i am new to emeralds. I may need to look at a few more stones and see what catches my eye. Appreciate the help and knowledge

    Emerald proportions

    Hello again, Firstly, thank you again for everyones feedback and I realise now with emeralds there is no cut that defines a beautiful stones...beauty is in the eye if the beholder. I have found a stone that looks great and would like to order it but not too sure how to read the asset and hope to avoid the hassle with returning if it is dull . Also, would medium blue fluorescence be an issue with D colour ? Thanks NP

    Hence why this stone is offered at a good price. Thanks for all the feedback. I Will say no to his stone if the faint brown is evident

    Just find it strange that a supplier would "lower" the stones colour when GIA have graded it and F. Unless of course its an error.

    Never seen FBR on a F graded stone but you may be right. ill confirm with the supplier if its an error Thanks

    Any ideas why FBR (im guessing faint brown) would be added to this stones description by the supplier if it has been graded F colour by GIA ? http://info.stonehdfile.com/Online/Transaction/StonePktDtl.aspx?pktcode=618507710&CertiType=104 Thanks

    I am starting to have a little more faith in my own visual judgement and not focus too much on the numbers.

    Just been reading on internet sites about depth and table lengths and these seem to be the preferred. I agree visual is the ideal Thanks again

    Emerald proportions

    Hello all, Have been looking for an emerald cut, F colour, VS1, 1.40 - 1.50ct stone with 1.4 - 1.5 ratio... The ideal proportions seem to be the table length at 61 - 69 and stone depth at 61 - 67. The GIA report also states the girdle thickness, symmetry and polish. Wondering if there is any other criteria with the emerald cut such as, angles or pavilions to help narrow my search ? Thanks, NP
  15. Thanks for the details...very interesting
