Some time ago someone referred me to Thaigem.com as a source for
stones. This past Christmas I received a request out of the ordinary
and decided to order the stones from Thaigem.com
To my surprise diamonds they claim are VS are SI-I, what they call
for ound brilliant cut, is the closes I have seen to old mine cuts
in a long time, and as if this was not enough the carat wt. is not
what they claim either.
I graded over 750 pink sapphires and of these, only 162 conformed to
the clarity grade given, I was willing to keep the stones even if
the weight did not match the description and thy deny me that
posibility saying I had to pay for the whole lot? My reply - supply
me with the stones they described, their reply - No can do.
I asked if they had any GG’s on staff, the hepl desk person did not
know what a GG was, and when I told her she said “oh we have two of
those employed” …
An of course they are not willing to reimburse my money. I have been
in the business over 12 years and never have had such an experience
before. SO people STAY AWAY OF THAIGEM.COM and if anyone has a
supplier for colored sapphires please do tell me.
