There are Internet jewelers who sell diamonds & some diamond-centric forums. Search & you can find comparable stones & gauge price that way. Hit me up if you want other advice... since I just bought a rock earlier this year.

It depends on a lot more then what you posted. Do you have an ASET image for the diamond, or can you get one? That is the only way to tell how good the cut is. Is there a grading report, and who is the report from. With an SI2 H color and a diamond at big there is a good chance you will be able to see the flaws in the stone with your naked eye. Is your goal size over quality? If it is cool, but you can always go a little smaller and get a much better stone.

for that carat weight you should be in the $6000-$7000 per carat range. So $12000-$14000 depending on cut.

Can you actually see the difference? And my choice was between the 2H and 1.5D. I'm thinking she wants the size.

They always want the size, and all you do is try to talk about is the quality of it. But, I dont think you are going to win that debate.




bee tee dub, if this is for an engagement ring punch her in the cooter and get her a decoder ring from a cracker jack box for being so demanding.




and side note, I just watched snatch the other day and makes me ask, How do you not have a hookup for this??

yes you can see the difference, but it's not the color that does it. It's the cut and clarity that makes the difference and it's big.

No, it's just if I was going to spend the same as a car I was going to learn everything there was and get the best I could. Not just walk into a store and say I want a ring.

Nah Man, I hit bold on what I read last night. My eyes are still tired and I missed what I read.

Props for knowing your stuff, I believe in the same thing.

I was like, come on man! you gotta learn about how it works, I get a new stereo, I take her to sweet tomatoes.
I bought a new car, I bought her an aux cable for her car.
I buy a new gun, shes getting replacement vacuum bags she keeps asking me to pick up from the store.

No, not usually. Especially if the diamond is anywhere near the upper end of the spectrum in color, inclusions and cut.

Some people just like to *know* that it's a high quality, expensive diamond.
