we all know that Pricescope is full of outliers so it got me thinking how Pricescopers stack up to known averages and our perceived averages.

Sorry I edited the poll to include a non-diamond option. Please vote again. Thanks. :naughty:

I'm 29 and live in the SF Bay Area and I'm at 1.16 after a mini-upgrade from .90. I'll get there :lol:

A couple years ago someone actually complied the data on all PS rings and the answer was surprising... I think we were about 1.25 on average... maybe a little (but not too much) more.

Mine is 1.09

I was just looking at those. I found it through this link: https://www.pricescope.com/blog/knot-survey-average-price-engagement-ring-5200. So it looks like a couple of years ago we would have been just above average. Next I'd like to see where the trends are for color and clarity. With this economy I wonder if preferences have shifted.

I bet it varies-- some will value size above all else while others value color or clarity.

Shape as well...that will also influence the size that people decide on.

I voted diamond alternative because I'm in the process of trading in my 3/4 carat diamond for a 3 carat sapphire. The rise in diamond prices allowed me to get a better trade-in price than I would have six months or a year ago.

This is a really interesting thread. Mine is a 1.40 center stone. I don't take it for granted one bit because this is probably the nicest thing I have ever owned and I feel very blessed.

Wow - surprised most votes are in 2ct +...I guess that numerically this is a wider range than the others, so that is part of it.
