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.

Thanks.
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.

All my stones are

1. Russian
2. Middle Eastern
3. Indian

None are from Africa. We are part of the Canadian Diamond Code of Conduct. This is a voluntary organization that the industry has created to help fight blood diamonds.

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
