    He sounds like a real winner. I think not buying (or him not allowing you to buy 🙄) worked in your favor.

    I think for the price, it is still a good buy.  The prob with uncert’d stones when people pay the same price for them as cert’d.  But for the stats, even if it is more like J, you are still paying a fair price.  If the inlcusion is prongable, I would not worry about.  A lot of times with clarity, it is more of mind clean thing.

    I personally would never buy a diamond without a cert. Even if it was a deal or included. I like to know exactly what I’m buying and have documentation of that. I voted “no”

    $2,300???? Really.. either it’s a great deal or somethings up with it imo. The best way to figure that out is certification for sure.

    The reason I say that is because I have a 1.09 round diamond, si1, H that cost $5,400 just for the diamond.

    It sounds like you were saved from a lot of problems and drama with that guy!

    It doesn’t all add up. That price is kind of sounding too good to be true. The trouble with uncertified diamonds is you really don’t know what your getting and whether you are getting a ripped off. Typically if a diamond has a good chance of coming back as predicted most jewellers will send it to be certified before selling, it means he isn’t confident. His reaction to your questions makes him shady as. 

    I would look at James Allen, thousands of diamonds with all kinds of stats and prices on there, all cerified and got a 360 image of the individual diamond.

    ponyrider:  I didn’t pay for it.

    but since you mentioned it, I looked up some diamonds on James Allen (I hear a lot about them on the boards).. all of them were the same price for comparables or more, so I disagree.
