Has Enchanted Diamonds cast a spell on Nice Ice?

Enchanted Diamonds review, can a zebra change it's stripesI probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but I’ve made peace with Enchanted Diamonds of New York City. I know, I know what you’re thinking… “Isn’t Enchanted Diamonds the company that YOU awarded an F minus in your review of the Enchanted Diamonds web site a little more than a year ago?!?! The online diamond vendor that YOU linked to and then proceeded to highlight the link address with the comment <==== Definitely NOT an Affiliate Link ====> to emphasize the fact that you weren’t recommending them as an online diamond vendor?” That is actual commentary from another affiliate who I work with and I can see why they are concerned about my recent alliance with Enchanted Diamonds.

James Allen vs Enchanted Diamonds Reviews: Same stone, different price?

James Allen round ideal diamond reviews, GIA 17158559“I found this GIA Triple Excellent Cut 2.21 carat, E-color, VS-1 clarity, round diamond from James Allen and would like your opinion on it, I think that I found the same diamond for less from Enchanted Diamonds. During the course of my research, I found your negative review of Enchanted Diamonds, but then you wrote a positive review of a pear shape diamond from Enchanted Diamonds the other day. Why the change of heart? Obviously I’d like to get the best price possible when buying a diamond, but I want peace of mind also. Given that the diamond cut quality is GIA Excellent, who would you buy it from? Who does the best custom work? And do you have any discount coupons for either vendor?

How to search for pear shape diamond via Enchanted Diamonds

What are the best proportions for pear shape diamonds?Hi Todd, I need your help ASAP because I’ve spent the past few months learning all that I could about round brilliant cut diamonds for an engagement ring, and just discovered that my girlfriend prefers pear shapes; thus I’m back at the drawing board, at ground zero with less than three weeks to find the perfect ring! My target range is around 2.50 carats, H-I color, VS-1 or higher in clarity, with the best proportions possible for a pear shape diamond, and a ceiling of about $25K including a 3 stone baguette ring in platinum if that’s possible. I realize that the budget is kind of tight, but I might be willing to stretch a little further if the vendor offers competitive financing. Thanks! — Marcus W.
