Honker with a honker stone,,,,,,congrats on a very fine piece,,,looks like a super clean near colorless diamond,,,,,I would have went to a couple more places if your intent was to sell,,,,,I have one that's 2 carat colorless with only one flaw that a place said they would give me a thousand,,,,,,have another just over a carat that I was told a thousand,,,,,I still have them both,,,,you were told a thousand too,,,,,must be the magical number,,,,GL HH

You guys need to re-think your diamond selling process. Unless that jeweler is a family friend I wouldn't be selling him your stones. You'll drop a few dollars to grade a good coin. Drop a few dollars to get those stones graded then pop them on eBay, or go into the jeweler with an idea of the stone's value. Get max return on those high dollar finds.

What this guy said. Do your research before you sell.

Appraisals are great.......but normally over stated vs what you will get. $4000....... seems like 100% free cold cash to me. Most of us have a lot of tucked back EXPENSIVE finds we have no idea what to do with. Congrats on the find........ nice.
