Is this diamond too expensive?

    Updated from earlier post:

    I bought the diamond, I just could not resist. After viewing many many diamonds I kept coming back to this one, I also looked at some real stones in Helsinki of the various colours and clarity and decided I really did not want anything less than an E.

    I am kind of second guessing myself now a little though, the price may have been excessive ($6,200)

    Could someone (with more knowledge than I) take a look and tell me if this is a reasonable price??

    Other details on the diamond are available at: http://www.goodoldgold.com/diamond/5941/

    I will have it set in a mark morrell flame ring

    Hi Irishman,

    I think the price is fine doing a quick comparison, I know Jon from GOG is competitively priced and that is a gorgeous diamond you have there of the highest quality in all aspects.

    Thanks for the reply, my mind is a little more at ease.

    I have to say it has been extremely interesting looking for diamonds - it is addictive (I am like a magpie at this stage!), I have looked at hundreds over the last couple of months in the end I decided to go for quality instead of a bigger stone of lesser quality.

    This diamond just seemed like my definition of perfect... I know its subjective

    You are most welcome! It is going to be a gorgeous diamond and it is easy to second guess yourself once you pick one - to me that is a sign of a smart shopper!

    It sounds like you have done a very thorough job of researching and comparing many diamonds so you can now enjoy having made an educated decision, safe in the knowledge you have picked a superb diamond - congratulations!!!

    ETA - I was just looking back on your posts, your friends were not supportive of you buying such a high colour and clarity diamond? Stick to what you want, if the very high colour and clarity appeal to you ( and everything else is superb with this diamond also) then don't let anyone dissuade you!!!!!!!!

    You''re a lucky fella, irishman. Many people can''t even afford their idea of perfection! Knowing that this important stone is through & through what you want is unbeatable. It will give you such peace that it is WORTH IT.

    I do believe GOG is competitively priced -- especially compared to (other) brick & mortar jewelry stores. High color & clarity are extremely prized and, as such, they carry a steep price tag. The beauty is everlasting though. Get that baby insured!

    I most certainly will take pictures and post them, I put a fair amount of thought and effort into finding the right stone and setting so a bit of gloating will definitely be in order!

    Gloating is good and you will be rubbing your hands and cackling with glee when you have that beauty in your hands AND being set in a MM setting?????

    Pure perfection.[​IMG]

    Thanks everyone.

    A quick question, do men wear a ring after getting engaged? (obviously not a diamond ring), a band or something? what is the standard procedure?

    You certainly can wear one if you wish, but I think it is more usual that chaps wait for the wedding band.
