I can't complain about the prices but I don't see any published policies on returns or anything else for that matter. I would be very careful. Has anyone had any experience with this vendor?

This vendor has been all over the internet with claims of "best prices". So what else is new? Price is not exactly what diamonds are all about. If price was all that mattered we'd be appraising and wearing uncut diamond rough.

Are the stones at "40% off" really nicely cut? We don't have a clue. Can we find diamonds at 40% off enywhere, yes, but the cut won't be superb. Does it matter? To nearly all of us, it does!

Buying diamonds from vendors who haven't a clue how to offer their stones properly is like standing around a ticking time bomb. Eventually something is going to happen and it won't be pretty. If they can't understand the rules of the forum, how do you think they will treat clients who have a little problem with their purchase?

Diamond prices are artificially maintained by the monopoly, and I wonder if Russians are in for the rescue.

Momoploy is a game we played as children.
In todays world there is no monopoly in diamonds. de Beers are in there kicking and fighting to survive against bigger and far tougher competitors - Riotinto and BHP-Billiton.
They still mine around 40%, and sell another 20% from other sources, mostly Russia - who retain more and more rough for direct processing each new contract.
De Beers privatised last year - they had too because they were a takeover target - assests worth more than return on investment.

So never believe all you read or hear in the popular press.

Then, was Oligopoly a final essay topic in college Economics class...? or is it still a reality.

I still wonder if (even good) diamonds are truely rare enough to justify $20,000 for a 0.4 gram chunk.

From a curious newbie... :confused:

Gold or any other mined commodity is not rare either.
But when the price falls prospectors stop prospecting and supply eventually falls. Then the price goes up.
Over the next decade the chance of diamonds $ going up will depend on new markets like China and India, because new prospecting technologies have been advancing the finds in places like canada.
But believe me it is a real market and the prices depend on real supply and real demand (and of course marketing etc)

But what drives demand???

Sex.

But that is another story :loopy:

Their prices on average seem to be around 6-8% lower for the same diamond as the lowest price listed with other vendors. Has anyone had experience working with this vendor as their prices seem a little too good to be true. I asked them abouth their return policies and they responded with the following:

with our terms and return policies.
