Bought my first diamond, EGL, buyer beware!

So I bought a .74, VS1, G color, hearts and arrows round cut EGL Cert diamond. Found out after I bought how unreliable EGL is. Anyways, I get the diamond and took it to get appraised today. The appraiser said it was Si1 clarity and L color. OMG, he saw the look in my face and asked to look at my certs. He saw the EGL on the cover and laughed even before he opened it. My diamond was a total of 6 grades away from what it was supposed to be ... Never again will I buy an EGL diamond. Never.. Ever. There is a reason EGL diamonds can be 20% cheaper than GIA diamonds, its because the EGL graders are not lenient, they are blatantly incompetent.

I found an Si1, G color Ideal round cut GIA .66cts for the same price that I am trading it in for. Seriously, an L colored diamond?? Heck no.. EGL= con men, out to make a buck.

DO NOT BUY AN EGL DIAMOND JUST CAUSE THE PRICE IS NICER!!

sometimes EGL are not too bad, but that's way off the mark!!

you should always get a second opinion on an EGL cert, it's too risky!!

EGL USA is pretty good. EGL Israel is just as good as writing your own appraisal!!!
