Okay, let's get this straight! When you decide to buy a gemstone online, it is usually a tough decision. Even if the stone appears to be flawless, you may experience trust issues and become reluctant. However, I believe it is critical to highlight that the same holds true for us!
Let me clarify this last point. When you send us a message such as "do you have any 3 cts sapphire?" it shows that you are either scanning the market for an average price estimate or you are NOT a professional at all. It's as if you walk into a car dealership and ask, "Do you have any big cars?".
You'll sound funny, which is why I've put together a list of all the questions you should ask and attach to any message you send to a gemstone company:
- Quality: Are you looking for a highly clean emerald or a low-quality one, for example?
- Color: Be sure to provide the correct color of your stone (pigeon blood, cobalt blue, royal blue, light blue...). If you're not sure, include a photo of a comparable stone with your comment! On Google Images, it takes roughly 10 seconds to find a similar stone.
- Shape: pear-shape, oval, cushion, etc.
- Treatment: this is critical because the price of a fine ruby can range from $500 to $2000-3000$ per carat depending on its treatment.
- Price range: Please provide us with your price range. Again, we will not attempt to mislead you, but this will assist us in identifying the ideal stone for you.
- Carat weight: give us a carat range of the stone you are looking for!
