So, as we don’t have a sticky detailing potential vendors of MMDs / LGDs, I thought I’d make a thread
In terms of ‘Pricescope-recommended’ (i.e. ‘safe’ sellers) I think the following would be correct?
Brilliant Earth (BE)
Quite a large range but more in smaller sizes. Some colours but mostly yellows.
@EEFranklin is the CEO.
$800/ct pricing. MRB + Princess. White, pink and blue. Limited stock that goes quickly in larger sizes. Only sold in Sterling Silver settings (I think).
August Vintage (AV)
Patented(?) Vintage cuts. Custom-cut stones. @Rhino at your service
Mostly MRBs and Ovals. Fair range. Rhino used to work there.
I have also seen the following mentioned but I’m not sure if anyone has bought from them:
H&A / AGS000 Rounds. Blue and Pink Rounds. Limited sizes/stock.
Vintage cuts. Unusual cuts. Custom-cut stones. May not sell loose stones?
Seem to have the same inventory list as(so presumably virtual inventory) but at higher prices.
In addition to the above, @MelloYello8 also found/has mentioned some other sellers:
I-J SI2-VS1 only. Doesn’t sell loose stones.
I can’t get the search tool to work (or no inventory is on the website). States a 10% restocking fee if loose diamonds are returned.
Fairly large range of MRBs. Search tool is failing for me but does have other shapes. No pictures or videos. Not sure about cut quality – lots of MRBs with 60%+ tables.
Quite a large range of MRBs but limited other shapes. Not many with pictures/videos. Cut quality needs assessing for each stone.
I can’t get any inventory list to come up but it looks like they do a range of different cuts, including Hexagon:
Quite a range of colours across MRBs and fancy shapes. I think prices might be high compared to other options?
Am I missing any?
I know that Robbins Bros has been mentioned as selling MMDs, but I thought we’d want to focus on good value offerings, rather than price-hiked B&M stores lol
Please add to the list or comment as necessary!
