Was my diamond purchase worth it?

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to invest a portion of my savings in diamonds.  I've visited a few retail shops in CO, but much to my dismay none of them have shown me through designs that I long for. But, I was needed to spend over $40,000 for old traditional cuts. Are our so-called eminent diamond traders sourcing jewelry from innovative cutters?

I don't see why a diamond trader should source jewellery from a cutter. Surely they would source diamonds. Which, lovely as they may be, are not jewellery.

In any case, there are 3 main issues with your question:

1. I would not invest a portion of your savings in diamonds. If you want to purchase diamonds because you like them, it's OK, but don't do so in the hope of seeing your money again.

2. The title of your topic implies you have already bought. Then you talk about "attempting". So which is it?

3. By strange coincidence, another guy called Patrick Saada was busted a few days ago here: https://www.diamondreview.com/forum/topic/4606-bidzcom-poor-jewellery-terrible-customer-service-read-this-before-buying-from-them/?do=findComment&comment=58552

This is not only pointless; it actively discourages people to find you out since all you demonstrate is dishonesty.

Is there a question in there somewhere?  Are you looking for investment advice? Recommendations of jewelers in CO (Colorado?)? Advice on a stone you’ve purchased? Advice on innovative cuts? Old traditional ones? Something else entirely?

@denverappraiserNeil - I think he's looking to hawk his business... his name is the same as that of the founder of a cutting business who posted a couple of times posing as a consumer prior to being banned.
