An appraisal does not add or nor take away the value of a diamond. An appraisal is meant to satisfy a customer. The diamond IS what it IS regardless to who says so or not. The customer is evidently requesting to be reassured because he or she does not have an eye to make the call. Therefore, he or she calls for an appraisal. I spent so much time in my life trying to prove my value and worth, when in actuality the customers were the ones that needed to be reassured. I’ve been valued far above rubies since the foundation of this world! The appraiser happens to be my creator and He says “no need for appraisal”. You IS what You IS and that’s valued.
