Is this place a scam?

I would take this question over to pricescope but my initial reaction is don’t buy. I just picked one ring on the website, the Aria, and the lab listed is CGL which I’ve never heard of, and it says it’s clarity enhanced. Diamond people (I am not one, I just read what they say) generally agree to stay away from clarity enhanced stones. This one is $8600 for a 2 carat E VS2 in 18k white gold setting, and that price is way too good to be true, so you’re trading something to get that price. In this case it’s probably just a low quality poorly cut diamond with clarity enhancement to make it look better. And it doesn’t give you an option to pick your stone or even browse the stones they offer, so I guess you just get what you get.

I just quickly looked at whiteflash and a 2 carat F VS2 H&A is closer to $30k just for the stone. Ask yourself why would this website be selling an equivalent product for less than 1/3 the price?

The stones are all clarity enhanced. You don’t want that, believe me.

If you think it’s a scam it’s probably a scam… and as they saying goes “if it’s too good to be true…”
