My boyfriend and I have been doing some ring shopping and have found the perfect unique setting at Jared. However, when we looked at loose stones they were a bit pricey. We thought about buying online but we both want to see the stone before we purchase it AND we like the guarentee and service plan at Jared''s. We''re looking at a ideal round 1 carat with SI1 or better and an F in color. Could anyone eduate me on online buying and maybe help me out with whether to buy online or at Jared. A similar stone to what we''re looking for is priced at around $7200 (their peerless diamond).
