Hi Joe, you are doing the Lord’s work on here helping us all out.
Because my lady likes to try stuff on before we buy it, I’m cornered in on buying a brilliant earth diamond/setting. I’m ok with a little mark up, problem is the pictures of their diamonds all look lousy compared to JA. Have you seen the same?
Here’s one example, great C’s and ideal cut but doesn’t looks cloudy/dull
Any thoughts on this one? Should I request more photos or to see in person? I’m looking for 2.4-2.7 caret lab diamond.
Yes, BE’s photography isn’t as good. It’s not as clear and the style changes from diamond to diamond, which makes it hard to compare.
I suspect it looks this way because of the photography, but I can’t be fully sure. It’s HPHT so it shouldn’t show strain and a VVS2 cloud shouldn’t impact the clarity. It otherwise looks good for the specs. You could ask for more info and see if they have anything, but I’d guess the manufacturer only created the one video.
