by sassygoose » Aug 16, 2011 I just noticed a large price increase on Leon's ring page - a sapphire and diamond 3 stone ring that I have been oogling for a while now. I just went up from $38,000 to $45,000. Not that I am going to buy it, but that is a huge jump. Have others seen increases like that recently? I cannot imagine the increase in the cost of metals is that much.
