Hello,

Thank you very much for the answer, but I'm looking for real diamond Master stones.

Do you know where I can ask for them ?

Speak to any reasonable diamond dealer and ask him to find certified stones for you. He may not have them in stock, and you may have to take them one or two at a time as they turn up, but he will get them. A dealer I have had some nice (and reasonable) stones from is A Ruppenthal in Idar Oberstein. His diamond man is Herr Witter, worth a 'phone call.

Sorry, should have added that it is highly unlikely that you will be able to buy a set "off the shelf" as it were. It would just be too expensive to prepare and hold them. One at a time as they show up is the way forward here.

Sometimes you can find them on eBay from a retiring professional.

True, they can be found on Ebay, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting. Then again you may have to have the stones certified, which will eat into any savings.

for what i know there were few companies who provided for them in the past but it seems no one is doing that anymore, likely due to the very high expenses involved in the operation. If someone knows about company sill doing that, please report.
