lucky? very man...hahaha....like e chinese saying..one kind of rice feed many kind of ppl...haha some don't know how hard the man works to support or have the wedding...of course there are ppl born with silver spoon and those cannot compare... this thread now becomes e little man talks..
getting a diamond ring is a very important item and sure is once in a lifetime...
better to get one that one can afford comfortably and not get too small a one to only need to spend more to upgrade later...
(similar to lens buying... better to get a good one then to get one just because it is cheap)...
"camcount" freeze, till Dec 2011
Anyhow I will be looking at bluenile for birthday options nxt !
expensive to buy.
no value retention.
The Gem Value is depend of different kind of stones have different kind of expectation. For Clear Diamonds (not colour) that are more than 1ct and Good Quality than got price value when you sell it due to the rareness in the market.
One thing I wanna to speak out is in fact there are a lot of Diamonds that are mine out from the Mother Earth but the Father of the Diamonds control and keep more amount than the amount of the diamonds that are selling on the world diamonds market. So that the Diamonds are so rare in the world and it means more value!
This is call Demand!

Really feel sorry to my gf after looking at this thread
Wow.. good info thread, since I'm hunting as well.
Anyway to the TS, look around bluenile or for rapaport. These should give you some indication as to the prices of diamonds. Anyway there are a couple of si fus on the HardwareZone forum. Think it's a good place to get estimation on the prices for various cuts, colours etc....
And while I'm at it, don't bother with the red or blue boxes... waste $$.. haiz.
