So because of my paranoia/OCD/skeptical personality, I would like to have an independent appraisal of the engagement ring I got from Zales recently

Tried to look online but seems like hard to decide on which one. There is a few in JoCo area, and one near downtown. And not sure which one is the "best" so to speak that can be most objective. Just needing to confirm the 4Cs on the diamond and get a report to compare to the Zales report which I'll request from them as well.

A few I found from websites that shows these are associated/certified by various Gem societies/assoc:

Kansas City Jewelry Appraisals

Goodden Jewellers Home Page

Diamond Appraiser | Diamond Appraisers | DiamondAppraisers.net (Kienstra Gem Lab, Independent Stand Alone Lab in Clayton, MO by Therese Kienstra)

Accredited Gemologists Association

Accredited Gemologists Association

Any recommendations of a good diamond appraiser? (mostly for verifying the cut/clarity/etc and not as much into valuation)

Thanks in advance!
