But when considering the purchase of a very fine diamond weighting one carat or more, we strongly recommend that the diamond be accompanied by a report, even if it means having a diamond removed from its setting (no reputable lab will issue a report on a mounted diamond), and then reset. Your fashion mistakes will include frilly blouses, silk dresses and exaggerated designs. You value quality more than quantity, style more than fashion.
