I''m searching fora 2ct round stone H-I color range, SI1-2. Based on my research, a well-cut stone of this type will cost me around $12-15K.
I have a quick question that I was hoping you guys could help me with: Do you know anything about the diamonds that Macy''s uses in their engagement rings? I got a flyer this week for their semi-annual diamond sale (link below), which lists a 2ct. diamond engagement ring for $8,159.00 (down from $12,000.00).
With an extra 15% off, that ring would cost me roughly $7,000.00, which is far less than what I could expect to pay at a B&M or even online for a 2ct stone (and would leave me with plenty of $ to reset the stone into something more unique). Of course, if these stones are of horrible color/cut/clarity then maybe it doesn''t make sense, but if not, maybe I''m closer to buying than I thought!
Thanks for all of your help!
