I was wonder what private party value you would place on an engagement set with the following:
14 karat white gold engagement ring prong set with seven round brilliant cut diamond weighing approximately a total of 1.26 carats, clear i-1, color G-H. Good symmetry and polish. Channel set with six round brilliant cut diamonds weighing approximately a total of 0.6 carat, clarity i-1, color range G-H. Good symmetry and polish. The ring weighs a total of 4.44 pennyweights.


14 karat white gold wedding ring channel set with eight round brilliant cut diamonds weighing approximately a total of 1.12 carats, clarity i-1, color range G-H. Good symmetry and polish. The ring weighs a total of 2.49 pennyweights.


I appreciate your thoughts.

Sorry, I'm unclear on the size of the center stone?

Looks like I'm not very good at this. It was graded by a graduate gemologist. In his write up he says he compared it with GIA stones if that makes a difference.

I am not a jeweler, just a secondary market shopper, but I would expect it to go for btw $200-400.

In the shoes of the OP, the replies might actually be pretty depressing.

The sadder thing is, you people are probably right on the money.

Haha, I'm totally okay. A very eye opening thing though. It's the type of ring that my gf likes so she just sent me an ad from Craigslist to give me an idea. Wow is all I can really say. The owner had an appraisal done a few months back and it listed the ring at $5500 and she was asking $2800 for it. I know there is major wiggle room and a markup but my mind is actually blown.

Thanks for everyone's replies and I will be sure to come back when it is time for me to get a ring.

Thanks again,
Adam

ditto!!! Please come back here before you spend any money and the folks here are more than happy to find you exactly what your GF is wanting...

the seller of that ring is asking waaaaaaay to much and the appraisal doesn't really mean anything, most of them are inflated and a second hand ring would be much less...
