Prices looks about right.

Sales tax relates to where the business is located. Most business only have the right to collect sales tax in the state they are based or have a store in, but it is the legal duty of people buying from out of state to report and pay the sales tax to their respective state. So there is no such thing as no sales tax for out of state purchase.

The diamond looks great! I think sales tax is payable regardless of where you live and purchase from.
