Independent Appraisal of Asha® 
Princess Cut by a GIA Certified
Gemologist

We submitted our latest generation Asha® (DLC diamond coated) to Michael Rogers, GIA Graduate Gemologist, and asked him to evaluate it the same way that he would evaluate a diamond.  He was also the appraiser for our Asha® H&A, and as before, we note that we selected him for two reasons: 

a) he was unique in that he does not sell or deal in gems, he focuses entirely on unbiased appraisals, and 
b) he had done a hidden camera undercover on jewelers for a local new investigation, which we thought was very impressive.

You can visit his site to learn more at www.gemsecrets.com

Report summary:

We were pleased to receive the following ratings:
ClarityFlawless
Cut:  Symmetry = Excellent, Proportion = Excellent, Polish = Excellent
Color: E (colorless range - D, E, F are the colorless grades)
Carat: 2.50

Flawless and Excellent are the highest ratings possible for their respective categories under the GIA diamond grading system.

Letter:

January 24, 2002

At your request I examined the jewelry you submitted for valuation and have provided an opinion of the Approximate Replacement Value.

There is 1 item and 1 pages in this report and it is valid only in its entirety. The final figure includes any and all taxes. You may wish to take this into consideration when using the report. The value conclusions are subject to limiting conditions that are set forth in the body of the report. To the best of my knowledge and experience, I estimate the jewelry has a total Value of $806.25 .

Photographs are included with the original report for your reference. I suggest that you keep your copy of this report in a safe place.

This report was prepared in accordance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

If I can be of any further assistance, please call.

Sincerely,
Michael A. Rogers G.G.
