Defenses / for Gem Purchasing

 

re:  all gems

 

re:  diamond purchases

 

re:    Blue & Pink diamonds
( or any Fancy Color diamonds excep  yellow )

You need to avoid
TREATED diamonds

in particular, what is called  “HPHT”  treated

Now,  the GIA will note “HPHT”  on its certificate

So, you want to
a) see the ORIGINAL plasticized  GIA certificate
( which cannot be  PhotoShopped & altetered)
plus
B)  you will want to  arrange a  facsimile copy of the GIA  certificate 
direct from the GIA
prior to putting-down funds

Here is the procedure:

 

XXXXXXXXXX

 

re: Fluorescence:

If  D, E  color
then on the GIA Lab Report

re: line item:  Fluorescence

 you want to see   NONE

 

re:  diamonds  at or above a  WHOLE SIZE 

like

2 carats

3 carats 

     etc.

 

GOOD  to be at least 2 points over a  WHOLE size
but
REALLY BEST   to even be 1% over a WHOLE  size

so…

2.02+
3.03+
4.04+
etc.

 

WHY?

If the stone gets a small chip from Wear & Tear,
it may need to be polished-up a bit
and this polishing may cost us a point or two

THUS,
we want BUFFER
so, we still  maintain “the size”

2.00+   and not, say
1.99
