First let me say thank you for this great website.
I’m looking for a website offering a good diamond purchase experience delivering to France (james allen doesn’t).
Blue Nile ships to the EU. Blue Nile will also act as the importer of record for EU orders to simplify customs.
There’s a huge markup for Astor branding. The 0.90 E VS2 also has a black crystal that is perpendicular to the table – you see it when you rotate the diamond and it reflects around the stone.
I think the option below would be better. Similar GIA EX/AGS 0 Ideal proportions, better clarity, 1000 EUR cheaper.
Shape,Carat,Color,Clarity,Cut,Price (USD),Affiliate Link
Thank you very much for this great alternative.
I used to consider this diamond from whiteflash :
Apart from color and carat difference, could you help me compare both diamonds ? (Sparking and “whaou effect” wise)
Again, you’re paying a massive branding premium for ACA. You’re paying more to go down in carats and color compared to the 0.9 E VS1. There will not be a significant difference in sparkle since both have AGS 0 Ideal proportions.
Got it, thanks for the clarification
I bought it using the affiliated link that you gave me 🙂
Thanks for your answer Joe,
Any thoughts on this one ?
