@Minirayray:  Sorry, I am not going to be a ton of help. I have a very similar diamond (size, cut, clarity) that is GIA certified we paid $2,000 for it. I am not sure if that price is fair or not, but maybe search around for comparable stones?

Honestly, I don’t know a whole lot about the certified piece and I do not “invest” in jewelry to get my money back per se. I just wanted a diamond that was beautiful, would last and look great over time.

4k for a non certed diamond with those specs is def overpaying. Can you get a refund? I’ve had jewelers say something is certed and then turn around and change their story and I refuse to do business with shady people. However, if you really love it, that’s your call.

that sounds overpriced to me.. go to james allen’s website and you can narrow down search results.

I would be leery of a seller that misrepresented the stone in the first place.

@Minirayray:  i think that i would take him up on the refund now and buy your diamond elsewhere and then just have him set it into your custom ring.  either that or have him match the price of the blue nile one.  i seriously think he’s trying to get $2000 more out of you than he should be. 

don’t wait.  do it before the ring is completed in case he changes his mind.

@Minirayray:  Um, if it was me, I’d get it independently appraised if possible. THat sort of thing isn’t water tight, but you want to make sure you’re getting at least close to what you paid for…..

@Minirayray:  So he says he used to work for the GIA….doesn’t change the fact that this stone isn’t GIA certified and that this grading is basically his own opinion, which is clearly biased.  I think you should at minimum take him up on his offer of independent grading, if not actually buying a stone elsewhere that isn’t so shady.  Clearly you’re overpaying for the stone and now it’s not even certified. Yikes.

This does not sound good. Do yourself a favor and look online at diamond vendor prices. This way you will have a better idea of what prices should be. 4k for an ungraded stone is overpriced, particularly for an SI2. Do not buy this one In My Humble Opinion.

Go to pricescope.com for great diamond advice from experts!

@Minirayray:  Make sure you have that ” He also told me if i wasn’t happy with it in a few weeks that they would give me full credit or refund” in writing. 4k for the stone is waaaay over priced. For that other 2k, you could get a really nice wedding band. Take a second and think about it.
