I'm so sad to learn that BGD's eternity bands have been priced up significantly, even though they are not yet reflected on the website.
With the popular dream half eternity band, it's now $25xx even though the website still advertises it as $18xx. That's a HUGE increase! And I even thought I was smart to be getting it before an increase in price... turns out I'm still too late :o :-o :(( :(sad :knockout:
All of their setting and bands went up ~65%. I'm still not sure why they've gone up so much. Other places have not gone up that much.

That should have said all of their diamond settings and wedding bands have gone up.

I'm sorry for being whiney. But. I expressed my concern to DH about price increases this weekend and there is a diamond I absolutely love... and need :kiss: well, I finally warmed him up to the diamond. It went up 20% on monday and I KNOW he won't go for that anymore.

I feel like this :( :knockout: about diamonds right now.

Bummer! :( How do you know the price went up if it's not on the website? Shouldn't they still honor the old price if it hasn't changed yet?

Legally no. Even without a disclaimer a price isn't an offer, so a consumer saying they want to buy at that price isn't an acceptance.

But they really should fix whatever issue they have with updating prices in a timely manner/all their prices at the same time.

It seems that prices have come dropped a smidge, or maybe it's time of year? Dec 2011:

Yssie, I almost had a heart attack when I saw this thread and then realized it was bumped from a year ago! The price increases from 2009 to now are really sickening for those of us who like diamonds! Thank you for the very visual proof!

LOL, sorry DS!
Well, at least it's trending the right way like Karl's thread suggests, even if it's just a little bit :-o

I fear that this down trend will be very short lived.

Wow I just almost dropped $20K on a stone I wasn't sure I wanted because I thought the prices were going up tomorrow. :angryfire:

Wow, I wonder what size diamond I'd be wearing right now if we had purchased it in 2009 instead of 2011 and 2012.

OMG I thought this was from June 2012 not 2011 and almost went and bought a few things that I've been eyeing.

I wish, honestly, they would go down a bit more but I don't see that happening. If people are buying a diamond that was $500 that inflated to $900.. why go down to $700 or even $800? I dunno.

sigh :cheeky:
