@ChellFish22:  You have no way of knowing what the stone is unless you meet them at a jewelry store and have it appraised. That appraisal could belong to any stone. They could have already sold 20 stones using the same appraisal.

I would not buy a stone off of craigslist.

Too good to be true = probably not true!

Seems too good to be true. Though, I second pp, maybe see if they’ll meet you at a jewelers to have it appraised?

@ChellFish22:  Doesn’t “clarity enhanced” mean filled? Also “J” is pretty warm.

It’s clarity enhanced….don’t do it.  It can also make the stone more fragile.

The table on it is GIGANTIC. Bad cut and clarity enhanced. Probably not worth it.

I definitely would avoid a clarity enhanced stone. That’s probably why it’s so cheap. Those a filled with glass I think to give them higher clarity ratings. If it’s enhanced and is an SI3 then it was probably really included.

The price is good, that’s about it.
