I Do Now I Don't featured on Good Morning America, abcnews.go.com/GMA/story

I Do Now I Don’t is unlike any online auction site you’ve ever seen. It all starts with a simple premise - put buyers and sellers together where both end up with a great price for their jewelry and other collectables. The site offers an outlet for people ready to unload their leftover “assets” from a failed relationship or a diamond ring they have not worn in years. Items for sale at any time range from diamonds, engagement rings, vintage and antique engagement rings, wedding rings to wedding dresses and collectible watches. Many items come with great stories like Aunt Rosa’s ring that transforms a generic gem into unique shopping experience. Buyers, in turn, get a great discount and the opportunity to own higher quality jewelry than they thought they could afford. During an economic recession, consumers are looking for ways to be smarter about everything they buy.

Key to I Do Now I Don’t is providing buyers and sellers with security, simplicity and superior service. A trained gemologist to assure its authenticity inspects each diamond sold on the site. The buyer’s money is released to the seller only when the diamond certification process is complete. In a world where so much is uncertain, I Do Now I Dont’s process allows everyone to buy and sell jewelry in 100% safe, secure and trusting environment.

I hunted around the internet looking for reviews on this place before placing my order, so for all of you looking for a review that isn't a little suspicious, here's one. Be aware that if you choose to go forward with them, their emails may get filtered to your junk mail (happened to me). Some people comment about lack of communication, and I felt the same way until checking my junk mail. They are actually very timely.

I think this website is a really good way to get a great deal if you are willing to do a little research on your own. I'm sure you could get ripped off too. I found a ring that was beautiful, but wanted to do some research to protect my investment. Here's some tips when purchasing from the site:

1. You can search a GIA certificate number online and compare to the certificate the buyer provides. I would recommend only considering the listings with certificates.

2. Compare price for an equivalent ring on Blue Nile. They are a large and fairly-priced online retailer, so they are a good comparison point.

3. Consider the impact of resizing. Not all rings can be resized easily or without compromising the rings integrity.

4. If you can find out who the original jeweler was, contact them and pretend like you want to buy a similar/the same ring. See how much they paid for it.

I went above and beyond, finding the ring on instagram (it was a custom jeweler who posts videos of each piece) and looking the seller up online.

I feel that the customer service is a little mehh. They can't answer your questions very well, but I did confirm they use a third party to confirm the details of your ring, so as long as you've done your research, it's a great way to save $$$ on a ring.

Good luck!

I was on a deadline for my proposal and needed my item within a week. Not only did I get a great deal on my ring but they came through on a strict timeline and made sure I had my ring on time. Nicer then the pics and paid probably half the price I would pay anywhere else.

Wow! I mean wow!!! I purchased what I thought was 1.69 carats in diamond weight. I mean, that's what the listing said. 1 carat in the center with .69 in the halo. In addition, I was shopping and purchased a radiant cut....when I received the notification from IDNID that my ring was verified and shipped I was so excited! It only took them a week of holding it to ship it! Anyhow, much to my surprise, the ring is not 1.69 in diamond weight as the listing states and it is not a radiant cut. Yet for some reason IDNID said it was good and charged me! The ring is 1 in the center but .25 on the sides and in the halo! In addition, it's princess, not radiant! This is not what I purchased. This was not the deal and is not the guarantee! This place is out to rob. They are a NY company and know it's going to be difficult to sue them or deal with this for most people, so they do not care. Luckily for me, I'm ready for a vacation and have plenty of rewards points. So the trip will be free and I can sight see while I'm there! Thanks for not responding to my emails or phone calls! See you guys in court!

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!!

Their customer service is horrible, if you ever email them then you should know what i am talking about. The owner is very arrogant and he don't care about his customer. I wish there is another platform that people can trading preown jewelry and avoid this website. NEVER EVER BUY anything from them.

I went to great expense to have two diamond rings apparaised and resized for sale on this site. I sent them copies of the appriasals, photos of the rings and got no response. Called to follow up. Was assured their gemologist would get back with me. Never heard another word from them. If this is how they treat sellers BEFORE they get my diamonds, I can only imagine how poorly I'd be treated once I'd turned them over to them.

Just bought a great diamond for a price below the adiamor dot com price, but well above what some jewler would have paid the seller. The seller and I both walked away being thousands of dollars better off. This is a perfect private party diamond exchange. Way better than craigslist or some online auction house.

Best company to buy/sell used diamonds from, period. Super easy website search features and the diamond I purchased was exactly what they said it would be. The customer service people even went out of their way to rush my order to me so it would arrive the day before I flew out of the country!!! WOW!

The whole process made me feel very comfortable and safe. Can't say enough about this website. I will always buy/sell diamonds and jewelry with them going forward.

I purchased a 3 caret, 12K diamond on I Do Now I Don't. After a lengthy go around with the seller who claimed the diamond was eye clean, in spite of it's quality specifications being poor, we purchased the diamond cash. I received a call a few days later from a gemologist from the site stating the diamond did not match the listing of being "eye clean" and that he did not recommend the diamond as it was in fact poor quality. I was SO relieved that the money had not been released to the seller, but was held in escrow with IDNID. After agreeing the diamond was not what we wanted, we received our 12K back in our bank account 2 days later. I couldn't be more happy with this site and their integrity. I will add however, if you are looking for large stones, this probably isn't the best place to do so. I found there are many diamond distributes on this site selling new merchandise at prices that you can find going to diamond districts or wholesalers. AND, you can physically see what you are buying. Diamonds are difficult because the rating scales for all the C's do not usually look to the naked eye the same diamond to diamond. So, it is with my experience that I say you NEED to see the diamond in person as you will be the one seeing it on your hand for the rest of your life and you don't want to make the same mistake we did. Pictures can be deceiving and so can the sellers. Thank you IDNID for your quality assurance.

My boyfriend just purchased my (soon-to-be!) engagement ring from IDoNowIDont.com. We were very nervous, not only because of buying online, but also because we were buying a ring "second-hand". We found a ring we both loved (I actually gasped when I saw it!), and contacted the seller. After a few emails back and forth, we settled on a price. He edited the listing to reflect our offer, and we purchased. The seller sent the ring to IDNID; they have a GIA trained specialist evaluate the ring to make sure it matches the listing and the certificate paperwork. (While they are evaluating it, our money was held in escrow). Once it was confirmed that the ring matched, they released the money to the seller, and sent the ring to us. I actually called IDNID, because I was checking the tracking number and it looked like it was going to be delivered on a Saturday (and I had it delivered to my work!) and I was all panicked that no one would be here to sign for it. A representative called me back almost immediately, was very pleasant, and assured me that they only deliver on weekdays. Their customer service is great.

I have not seen it in person, but my boyfriend says it looks amazing! It will have to be resized (the ring is a 7, but I am a 5.5), but that is not a big deal for the amazing deal we got.

Oh, also! I found a coupon online (I used code "EBBOX13") for a free insurance appraisal, so we got that too! The ring appraised for nearly DOUBLE what we ended up paying!! We have already recommended IDNID to several friends.

We got a ring MUCH nicer (& bigger!) than we would have been able to afford at a traditional store. I cannot wait to see it on! =)

I just made a purchase with this vendor. I found them to be honest in an unbiased way. Once I struck a deal with a seller and IDNID had the ring sent out for appraisal they contacted me and the seller with the change in color grading. I renegotiated the price with the seller after a conversation with the jeweller. We were set to go. The ring is on my hand. It is lovely and I feel I received a fair value for my dollar.

Remember you are dealing with a commodity that holds much emotional as well as monetary value to the seller, so every encounter will be different. Some are willing to negotiate far below the price posted on the website, some will not. I was surprised to see that many of the items that were posted a month ago are still posted for sale leading me to think that sellers have a number in mind for sale and stick to it leaving potential sales lost.

Overall, I feel this is a good option for someone who wants a little more diamond than they can afford in a retail setting. The value and experience turned out not to be as scary as I thought it would be. Mark, and the staff at IDNID Bravo! for making many folks dreams come true. MA
