Certificated from little known labs can be as fake as the gems they certify. You can save a lot buying on-line, but California has recently changed it's sales tax laws so that residents have to pay sales tax regardless of from which state the on-line items originate. We in California used to be able to save sales tax by buying on-line from out of state vendors. BlueNile.com offers lots of education, and you can see actual diamonds with their price.
