I passed Cartier on Newbury Street(Boston) yesterday and decided to go in to look around. The sales associate was showing me different rings and commented on how beautiful my stone was and that you didn''t see stones like that very often and went on and on. It was so nice of him to do that considering he knew I hadn''t purchased it there. In any case, he showed me a 3 carat D, internally flawless stone for $235,000!!! It was no-doubt stunning in every way, but I truly couldn''t see a huge difference between it and mine. It had a different personality, but I didn''t clearly like it better than mine. I loved them both! I''m no diamond expert, but it was nice to see that mine didn''t pale in comparison!
