Independent Appraisal of Asha® 
Hearts and Arrows by a GIA Certified
Gemologist

3 Photo of a 2.75 ct. version of Asha® Hearts and Arrows, the size we submitted for appraisal
We submitted our latest Hearts and Arrows version of Asha® to an independent appraiser, and asked
him to evaluate it the same way that he would evaluate a diamond. We selected this independent appraiser 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 news
    investigation, which we thought was very impressive.  

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

Report summary:

We were incredibly pleased to receive the following ratings:
ClarityFlawless
Cut:  Proportion = Excellent, Symmetry = Excellent, Polish = Excellent
Color: G
Carat: 2.80

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

To Whom It May Concern 

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 $1,155.63.

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.
