even if it''s "2nd hand" - i don''t see how the price would be $599. it''s not like a car --- if the diamond was worn before and reset - i don''t see how it could lose it''s value.

anyhow, i''d want to see a cert -- maybe the diamond is clarity or color enhanced?

I think if you and your FI want him to be the best man no matter what, you need to ask him that - but tell him his girlfriend is not welcome. I''m sorry - but it''s his problem not yours. Why invite her and make it your problem and ruin your big day? It''s obviously causing you stress and trust...

I know! I saw "china" in the headline and was like...what???

Anyhow, if you're not looking for fancy china and more for everyday, something we like to use (and even when family is over) is fiestaware - I really like it - have NEVER had breakage problems. They come in a lot of colors.

Cindy,
I know you're in canada but how much do you have to pay to purchase a stone from the states? (as far as duty/taxes)?? If you are not getting the stone/service/information that you want - that might be a better option...

Or find another retailer nearby if possible -??

I heard the Apollo is making them but they can only do like 1/4 or 1/3 ct- and they're not out on the market.

That is a really cute story and I love the ring.

Hi, I think the price of the stone not only depends on the cut but really the color intensity...i'm sure there is a pretty big price range...i think i've seen prices like $80,000 to $500,000 so i guess it depends on color. I have a yellowish orange gemesis cultured diamond - I know they are bringing...

Hi Nathan, I agree w/ Ricardo on going with a bezel setting. My best friend's engagement ring is a bezel-set princess stone and it looks much larger than it is. So, yes, I'd consider a bezel setting... Another thing to keep in mind, round brilliants ARE more expensive than other shapes like princess...

Speaking of pink rings, I know this isn't a typical RHR, but have any of you ever been to vividcollection.com? I came across their site a while back and this ring was so beautiful to me.

Check out this blue one as well (next post)- I think chialea would like the blue.

I'd also go w/ hearts on fire over tiffany, although I love the tiffany setting. What does the hearts on fire setting look like?

I love this band - but i think the stones are larger than 8pts - they're like 20 pts. each.

I could be wrong, but are you sure they are within the diamond? If they are in earrings or a ring and are worn often, they could just be dirty and have grease/dirt/buildup underneath the stone. Try cleaning it at home or having it professionally cleaned...i'm pretty sure it's just dirt.

I don't think your table is too large - it's more of a medium table. I agree w/ the others - if you like the stone and the setting, why not keep it?

I know that for the fluorescent scale for diamonds (GIA scale) it goes:

none
faint (least amount)
medium
strong
very strong (most amount)

I am not sure where "distinct blue" falls or why EGL uses that term. my guess would be around medium or strong? i'm not sure...
