    Default recommendation of gemmoogist

    Good day. in those troubled times I am looking for a gemmologist to give opinion on several brown diamonds I have in my hands. I have tested them with local jeweler and he confirmed they are diamonds but still would like to get more info including price. maybe you can recommend some ideally in London / south west London / Surrey area or elsewhere at the end.... Hoping for some luck in my search! TX

    I can't comment on the UK, although have your check book handy.

    I can probably find someone, but unless they're particularly impressive specimens, you'll probably spend more on a report than the stones are worth.
    Brown, "Champagne" (still brown), salt & pepper (heavily included) and black (borderline industrial) diamonds are on the less valuable end of the spectrum.

    thank you Peter, I was recommended yesterday to use Kerry Gregory from Gemmology rocks, to be honest , will try her as her website looks very good plus recommendation. I think I know stones are quite cheap but really wanted to get some pricing idea for those, as local guy who looked at them only said I got them at a good price and should be happy.

    TX indeed I did some but wanted to get some more idea to reconfirm my thoughts.... I don't think they are worth proper certification but more of honest opinion...

    Kerry's definitely one to talk to (I was going to check with her before recommending...).
