Hi guys,

I live in london and am looking to buy an engagement ring. I wanted to know whether it would be cheaper to buy it in the US or brussels and also what i could expect to get for approx $2,500.

Could you fill me in....
thanks

There are threads here (do some searches) from people who have had stones shipped - and they say how much duty and hassle etc.

Buying online in USA would save $'s.
Probably add about 15% to the prices here.
Do a price search on the home page.
I recomend H SI1 as the best value / for size budget stone.

If a stone is comparably priced it is reasonably priced. Pricescope is very competitve and most vendors list cheaper here than on their own sites :)

I presume it is not round - I only help on round stones with regard cut.

There is a link on the front page re fancy cuts.

Read read read, or buy in a store:errrr:
