Did I get ripped off?


Recommended Posts

Hi folks. First time here, and first time buyer also. Recently purchased a diamond from a jeweller that my friend knew. She sold me the following GIA certified diamond for $12,300 with a simple Platinum setting. I'm very happy with the diamond and think I got a fair price, but being that its my first real major purchase, I'm naturally suspicous. I've gotten opinions from a couple of other jewellers already (not appraisals, I'm saving that for IGI). Just wondering what you guys thought. Thanks!

There's no way to give a legitimate answer without actually examining the individual piece and considering what marketplace is involved. There are quite a few variables involved beyond the few that you've listed. Since you've already chosen your appraiser, ask them about your concerns during your appraisal session.


Why the preference for IGI?
