I was asked to help a client sell a diamond they had purchased while on a cruise. Upon examination, the laser drill holes were obvious. The stone also had some very interesting inclusions. It is an irradiated blue weighing over 5 carats. I am awaiting a report from GIA New York, but as of now I am thinking HPHT because of the inclusions. So it could be radiated, drilled, filled and HPHT. But I’ll need a GIA report to confirm.
This is not going to be an easy sale for me because I have no idea where to unload treated stones. I don’t even know where to buy them (we don’t deal with them).
Anyway, the pictures are cool. – Thanks for looking
