Hi Guys,

I thought I'd offer up my services here on the board.

I run my own business (on top of working for an IT Hardware company) as a diamond consultant. My father is a jeweller/watchmaker so this is how I got into the business. Today, my father concentrates on the watches and supplies side of the business and I handle all the diamond and jewellery products.

Basically, I'm ALOT cheaper than stores. Why? Because my business is operated from home. All of my clients have been thoroughly impressed and satisfied with my product. How do I know? Most of my sales today are referrals. A friend of mine posted my info on a Mazda board and I've done 3 or 4 folks rings from there.

To give you an example, I recently finished a ring that my client saw at Birks for $16,000. Granted Briks is very expensive and sells at appraised value, which no one in the industry does. He went to another jeweller and asked for an esimate. He got a price of $10,000. I did the same ring for him for $6,500 all in, no extra's. The ring was a 0.96 Carat VS2 F colour, Good Cut stone. The ring appraised for $15,800. Spec for spec, it was the same ring as the Birks ring, even in design.

All in all, if anyone needs engagement rings, wedding rings, or other diamond and gold work, please contact me as there will be a special price for MaxBimmer chums. I have referrals that you can speak to to see the satisfaction levels of my clients. I have yet (in the 4 years I have been doing this) to have one unsatisfied client.

So there you go - If you need something like this, PM me and I'll send you my contact info.

Thanks,

Deep

You guys better specify the color and the quality. Depending on both there is a large variation in price.
Color ranges from D=colorless,E,F,G,H.......=Yellow
Quality ranges from flawless to industrial, narrow it down for the guy.

Just a statement, if you are going to get a 1.0 carat stone pay the extra to get a 1.+ carat stone. If it ever needs work on the stone you have leeway on the weight. Stone prices I believe change alot from <1.carat to >1. carat. So if you have a 1.0 and lose .1 then you are screwed.

that's rarely a problem. In fact, if getting that "magical" 1.0 number isn't important to you, I always suggest 0.95 approx. This is because the price of stones jump up quite quickly as you get closer to the 1.0 mark. with 0.95 you can get a nice stone, looks exactly like a 1.0 (you will NOT tell the difference in size, it's like the size of a piece of hair!) and get excellent value.

Yup... Mostly Tissot, Swatch (no a big fan of myself) and some others. I suggest Tissot. Excellent company, nice designs and well made watches. Reasonanly priced too... I have a Tissot myself.

WOW - Didn't think I'd get this kind of response!

Ok guys - everyone who PM'd me, I'll be getting back to you ASAP. Within the next day or so with replies and my contact info.

Also - If you could include your contact info as sometimes I have questions regarding exactly what you are looking for etc. It would be easier then PMing back and forth.

There were a couple of requests for pricing on the messages here - I'll send PM's back to those folks as well.

I didn't think there were that many folks who wanted/needed jewellery here!

I always find this question intriguing...

Why are you looking for Canadian Diamonds? Most times I've found it's because someone has told you that this is the way to go and for some reason they have told you that they are better stones.

Do you know there is no visual difference? Do you know there is no change in light refraction? Do you know that they are higher priced simply because the Canadian Government has fee's attached to these stones?

Canadian stones - yes I can get them if need be. Do I recommend them? No, not unless you want to spend money unneccessarily. All my stones come certified by a one of the large, world wide companies. GIA, HRD, IGI, EGL, CDL, GS one of these.

how does the clarity range work again ?

Deep 3.2TL
02-09-2005, 12:17 AM
how does the clarity range work again ?

FL - Flawless - Top range - Very rare and very expensive
VVS1 and VVS2 - Very Very Slightly Included - Flaws are invisible to naked eye, need a minimum of 10x magnification, usually more
VS1 and VS2 - Very Slightly Included - Flaws are still invisible to the naked eye, need 10x magnification to view the flaw. Most economical, choice to excellent value and clarity
SI1 and SI2 - Slightly included. Flaws won't visible to naked eye. SI2 maybe possible to see the flaws under optimal conditions. Need less than 10x magnification to see the flaw. Good choice for the economical diamond. a solid SI1 stone will not have flaws visible to the naked eye.
I1 and I2 - Included. You can see the flaw without magnification and looks like crap! cracks inside the stone, etc.

I NEVER sell stones below SI1. I don't believe in selling garbage like People's and some other "discount" stores. I don't want my product, which is my reputation, to show badly.

Thanks,

Deep

That's really hard to say, I need more info.

BUT

Prices would start around $8,000 like this one
1.50ct ASCHERS H SI1 Good $8,177 GS
and go to
1.51ct Round F SI1 Very Good $13,423 HRD

And that's not even a high end stone!

Note: Add $200 for the ring itself.

I wouldn't actually suggest it. Here's why:

Everyone in the free world knows that J.Lo got a Pink Diamond, right? If you didn't know and you saw a blue stone on someone's hand, what would you think? Most people would think that it's a sapphire. Not only have you just wasted your money on a blue treated stone, now people think you picked up a sapphire and not a diamond...

But I can get them if you want them.

All stones come with 2 certificates. One from one if the worldwide grading companies, the other from a regional gemologist who will certify the value.

For the first ring
Don't have one in D colour, but F is visually the same.
0.77ct Round F SI1 Ideal $3,735 Plus $200 for the ring

For the second ring
Again, didn't have a D available
1.00ct Round E VS2 Good $8,165 plus $200 for the ring.

Currently don't have a stone of that spec. I have this one though... better colour, but a Very Good cut instead of Ideal. Also - Graded by HRD, world renowned and very highly respected firm. The difference in VVS1 and VVS2 is not visually noticeable.

1.00ct Round E VVS2 Very Good $11,241 HRD

Only the Canadian stones are laser inscripted. The certification comes with the stone. You are welcome to have it recertified or appraised again to ensure authenticity. Most jewellers will do this for free or a nominal charge. You take them the certification and ask for them to check it out. They will look at the stone, under 10x magnification and let you know if the certification is correct. The jeweller MUST be trained in diamonds! Some jewellers employees act like they are, but have no training.
