Huh?  You want to have it reappraised for resizing and refinish (I’m guessing it’s white gold and it was redipped?)… that really woudln’t change it’s value at all.

Did you have it appraised by a third party already? Or are you relying on the cost being an accurate appraisal?

The type of metal is stamped on the inside shank. I think if you’re willing to shell out $ for an appraisal, you’re better off getting a loupe and verifying that it is your diamond according to the GIA report. James Allen is not going to switch your stone. It’s just not going to happen.

blackinthesuburbs:  in that case I would take it right back to the same place and have it done again. Peace of mind.

Is your stone laser engraved

with a serial number? If so you could grab a magnifying glass and skip the appraisal for your peace of mind.

Personally I bet you could take the old appraisal and the ring to any jewler and just ask “are these the same stones?” no need for a new full appraisal. I’m sure James Allen wouldn’t change the stone but it could give you peace of mind And take 2 min tops.

I worry about the ‘stone switch’ whenever I get them cleaned!

I really do not think a company is going to risk their reputation … but I am sure it would have happened to someone hey
