you read every word of this educational system, you will
how to be a better consumer with honest answers
and at times very confusing information provided
to you but diamond
salespeople. Has this happened to you?
You ask to see a diamond
in the showcase at the mall jewelry
store and the first think
they try to sell you on is a 12 month
no interest payment plan
or how every diamond is guaran-
teed not to fall out or perhaps
the sale they are having. It’s shocking; before you know
it you’ve spent 20 minutes talking about everything except
the quality or value of the diamond.
So be ready to learn amazing
details and critical information
diamond salespeople never seem
to mention or try to cover
up when you’re shopping for
your diamond. But, before you
begin your diamond education there
are a few things you
You will learn that diamonds do not have
from one store to another. As a result, diamonds can
inflated with ridiculously high retail prices for the sole
of discounting them. This makes shopping for a
more difficult, if you’re just price shopping
the your making a big
mistake! What CoolSchool™ will
you is how to "Value Shop". Value Shopping is not
the lowest price, although
might be, but rather is getting the best qualitydiamon
for the money you intend to spend.
For example, if you
see a specific diamond selling at retail
for $9,000.00 and after the discounts
you pay $5,000.00
you might think that’s a good deal.
But what if the diamond
was only worth $3,500.00, then you should have only spent
$3,500.00 because that’s the value of the diamond. CoolSchool™ will
teach you the art of evaluating
a diamond's quality and it’s amazingly simple.
There are only two universally recognized diamond grading systems. The first was developed by the Gemological Institute of America or GIA, and is the most widely used grading system in the world. I.e. Clarity Grades: Flawless thru I3.The second was developed by the American Gem Society or AGS, this grading system is used mostly by a group of AGS affiliated retail stores. I.e. Clarity Grades: 1 thru 10.
For CoolSchool™ we
will use the GIA system, but a conversion chart will be available
if you should need to compare two diamonds graded by these two grading systems.
