Yes, I'm soon to propose to my sweetheart, and have never purchased a diamond before... a good friend has recommend 'Diamond's for Less'(downtown Toronto wholesaler) - the price seems right: 0.71, SI2, F, good...$3500 CAN (my ideal budget)
-what I don't understand is why their prices are so much cheaper than a larger dealer (e.g.'Peoples')? Is there something that they're not telling me?
Please help!
Thanks

Hi Pipco... good to see Canadian bro here :wavey:

Well, I've been in Spence once and found their diamonds twice more expensive than in the 'net. Big retail stores have bigger overheads than a small dealer.

$3500 CAD before or including taxes? Does the diamond have a grading report? What about cut/proportions?

All this additional info is needed to make an accurate price comparison. Try to make a search from the front page of this site to get an idea how much similar diamonds cost in the internet.

I would definitely contact USAcerted (IGS). They are in the Toronto area. I just bought from them. I highly recommend Julie.

Are you sure a company with USA in it's name is in Toronto Canada?

I'll second that. Julie found me my stone, and I couldn't be more thankful.
