Hello all-

I have been browsing the forum for a few days now asmy bf and I have started looking at engagement rings. We went to see a local jewler in nj and I have found a few rings and diamonds I like. I was wondering if I could get some feedback from anyone about the costs of these diamonds. Here is what we were quoted on some stones:

Hi Welcome, are both certs EGL? Also you are missing the pavilion, and crown angles, we need those to help you. Well lots of us bought online; I bought from Whiteflash and there are lots of good vendors here. I know how big a purchase it can be but you the vendors have return policy's and you can get it appraised if you are nervous.

Hey, I live in Jersey also. Hunted long and hard through many jewellers, don''t do it! Do yourself a huge financial favor! Call Mark from Engagement Rings Direct, he will be back at work after July 14th (jewllers holiday). I wasted months, and in one appointment, got my stone, designed my setting, and paid thousands less than the local yokels. You will be thankful. Well worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These both appear to be 60:60 diamonds. See PS''s tutorial on them here.

In other words, we need more info before we can say whether or not these will be great! The important info includes crown and pavilion angles as well as which division of EGL the grading reports come from (USA, Israel, Europe).
