I am looking at buying one of the diamond rings that is currently being advertised. 2.5 caret for 3,500.00. How can I be confident this is a diamond and not counterfeit. Sorry. Not meaning to offend, but they marked it down 70%. That's a bit scary.

There should be a Proof of certification provided. Check that first, send Groupon support an email about your concerns. If I looked up the same ring. Is it being offered by Bliss? And 14k white gold? there is a description provided. From what I can see everything is there. I will tell you that there are 2 different scales for determining the clarity of diamonds. One is much more stricter that the other. Sorry I don't remember the names of them, but my guess is that the lower scale is being used to determine the clarity. I-J at 12-13 is about the standard for most diamonds bought in a jewelry store. Walmart would be n-m at 21-24 clarity. Print out the page so you have a copy as proof of the description. Take it to a jeweler and have it appraised. If it doesn't match, you have so many days to return the item. Groupon will keep a record of your emails and question sent. You can also contact Bliss Jewelry to confirm everything before you buy. An additional step that I recommend is to first sign up for ebates if you don't have an account. If you by it through the ebates site you will get back up to 12% of the sale price back. That's a lot of change back. No catch. I by everything through ebates. Yes you can return the item. Just make sure you are following the process.

Absolutely make sure it is certified as gia or gsa (there are 2 bodies that certify diamonds ) and find out if it is manufactured. There are ne2 diamonds that are real, but made in a lab. Be careful with diamonds and as suggested contact Groupon support with questions.

I just know jewelry carries a massive mark up. But know nothing about this actual ring, can you return it if not real? Groupon stands behind their stuff.
