Hi, I''m coming out of lurking to post this and wanted to say first off that this site has been amazingly helpful in learning about diamonds, especially cut. My SO and I are looking for a ring now and although I don''t quite know what I want in terms of a setting, I do know that I want the best cut diamond that we can get within our budget (which will probably be around a 0.7 or 0.8 ct). I would really love for him to get a hearts and arrows stone through Good Old Gold because of the good things I have heard about them and the wealth of information that they post about each diamond. However, I don''t think he has quite seen the light yet and is going back to the local jeweler to look at some more things this week. Any women (or men, really) here have tips on how to educate him and steer him towards the perfect diamond without getting really involved?? I''m trying to let him do this and not control the process, but it goes against my OCD nature!!
