Ask for several videos under different lighting to make sure the red is not too dark.I am asking for a video for the 4.49 ct spinel posted above. Does anyone have an opinion on it? I love the size and shape but it's hard to assess color from photos and the idea of having to mail it back to India if I don't like it in person is daunting. I've never done that before. And now I'm worrying about color stability because of this thread.

It says "closed" but it's being held for me.
Sometimes what our opinion of dark and what a vendor's opinion of dark is might be very different to make sure to check out this aspect thoroughly. I find this especially true for reds.
Also there is no harm in asking for a discount as the stone is pretty pricey.
I don't know about mailing to India but I have been told China's customs is a disaster and they will take all your goods whenever they feel like it. Just note that in some countries it is impossible to return things so keep that in mind.
I found this out when I was researching about mailing stones into China. My jeweller could mail me goods safely and easily but it was near impossible getting anything in to him.
