I picked this stone up as a street buy and it was so nice that I went ahead and sent it to the GIA for a Grading Report. I am pricing this stone at about $500 lower than any similar diamonds that I've seen on the net and will entertain offers of a reasonable nature. I have included an image of the small informational paper that came with the cert and can of course send a copy of the cert to anyone who's interested.
Thanks AOTC, good to hear from you. Things are going well for me. I've been working over in Burlington, WA, (north of the Seattle area), for a while now. The jewelry biz has slowed considerably and the people that I'm working for wanted to jump start their entry into the computer modeling end of custom jewelry making. Since I can draw and hand carve by hand as well they wanted me to get that part of things going for them. It's working out pretty well, still a bit slow, but the advantages of modeling before making a large investment in metal work make the whole process much more appealing to them and their clients.
I'll still be doing working with my business, but have promised them that anyone in the state of Washington will get routed through their business.
How are you and your husband doing? Did the sales of his tooling take off at all? Drop me an E-mail if you'd like to yak it up in more detail!
AOTC has reminded me that I had this diamond up here and I think that it's about time to drop the price a bit for those in dire need of a fine diamond. Sooo, the price is now going to be $6800. Give me shout if you're interested!
