So after a few months of educating my self on diamonds mostly with the help of the board members here i finally bought a stone.

I like to know what you guys think and i also like to know if you can shed some light as to why the GIA report is so old.

Most diamonds i been looking at have GIA reports from 2014 or 2015.

 

Purchase price was $5900 and here is the report # 2141196821.

Assuming you're talking about a store, the usual reason for a 2011 report would be that it's been sold before and came back as a trade in of some sort.

 

Here's the link if anyone else wants to comment on it.

Looks good (very good!) on paper. Presumably you think it looks good in reality too.

 

As to why it stuck around, I don't know. I can hazard a couple of guesses: 1) J/VS1 is not a popular combination; 2) you bought from someone that buys for his own stock, and it just sat at the back of the safe for a few years; 3) it has been traded in; 4) there is some issue with the stone.

Thanks for the quick reply guys. Vendor has not sent me the diamond yet. Should i ask them to get an up to date GIA report? Would that help to make sure the diamond is not damaged?

Yes, it would, but it would add a fair amount of time and/or cost (and the vendor may not be too happy with either).

 

David the vendor assured me the diamond was 100% eye clean.

There was never any doubt of that.

 

Have you asked the vendor why the report is 3+ years old? What's their answer?
