I know there are a lot of questions on this, but I am trying to work out something a bit more systematically.

I have been using BlueNile as a solid reference for retail diamond price. My question is this, if I was to try to sell a diamond (GIA certified) in L.A.''s diamond district, what percentage of the BlueNile price could I expect to sell it for?

I understand that BlueNile sells for only slightly about wholesale. In my particular case, I have a 1.54-F-VS1, very good cut and no flouresence. I like BlueNile, because I am always able to find an almost identical stone. I am also curious in possible acquiring other stones as an investment that my wife can wear in the meantime.

Does anyone else have a good way to get a resale diamond value?
