HI
My boyfriend is pricing engagement rings in San Francisco, California.
The ring he wants to buy id 1/3 carat diamond.
I don't know anything about the cut or setting.
Approximately, how much should he pay for 1/3 carat diamond with the simplist of settings etc.
I don't want him to be ripped off in San Francisco. He says that diamonds are cheap there.

Hi Seaside,To estimate the cost of a diamond one should know several factors such as exact weight, color, clarity, proportions and whether the diamond has a grading report and from which lab.Your boyfriend migh already know all that. If not tell him to check out the tutorial on this site and do a price comparison.As for setting, simple Tiffany style ring + setting should not cost more than $200.

Hey thankyou for the reply
A $200 dollar engagement ring doesn't sound like much.
For about $500 what could you reccomend getting. What carat could you most likely get for 400 or 500 dollars?
