Someone is selling this loose stone on craigslist. They are asking $1500 for it. What do you think?

@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.

@julies1949: I didnt even think of that. I would definitely meet them to have it appraised, but using the same cert for multiple stones is a sneaky thing I bet someone would do!!

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.

@FauxPas2012: That was my next question. And j is a little too warm for me. Not going to contact them, just curious if it seemed lgeit to anyone or if we all agreed it was a little sketchy lol

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

I definitely don’t reccomend buying clarity enhanced, keep looking

@ChellFish22: With the color being a J, and it being “clarity enhanced”, I wouldn’t risk it.

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.
