a reliable, respected, often recommended choice.
Sorry, as I’ve said over the years, I don’t refer anybody I don’t
know personallyto trade contacts, especially diamonds.
If you are buying “real” wholesale - 40 below Rap or so - and you are
talking about average quality diamonds, which is G/SI, then the
typical markup to a retail customer is around $800-$1000, which
might be roughly per carat. A two carat of that quality you could go
to $1600 even to $2500, depending on the quality and the make is
everything.Commercial stones into the M/I2, crappy make zone are
going to get you more like $500 or less. A one carat D/IF at Rap is
22.4K - you might could get $5K on a stone like that.
Not sure on which planet people are tripling one carat stones, but
those days are long, long past.
