No. There are women, like my sister, who will get it appraised for insurance purposes, but women don't need to know how much you actually spent.

No. Never reveal where you bought it either, no matter how tough the third degree gets. And it will.

No on sharing the price, and I’d skip the diamonds if possible, what a scam.

She's not into prices or flash. A one carat near flawless would mean more to her than a two carat SI1-I.

The value of such an item is symbolic and sentimental - why would either of you bring up the monetary value of it in a conversation? The monetary value of items, which happen to have special meaning to their owners, is probably the most irrelevant aspect of it that I can think of.

Nope. And have a look at Moissanite. Better color, clarity and far greater brilliance. Whatever you buy, have it appraised, scheduled for insurance and keep the appraisal in your safe.

I loathe DeBeers and their artificial bullshit scarcity of diamonds attack on the public.

Travis, you have any Jewish people down there? They teach us about how to handle our private affairs in sixth grade :lol:

No.

Amongst other pretty oohhh- ahhhh minor gems in the safe the Warden has her Moissanite. I like them better than diamonds. It seems that the only segment that does not are the diamond sellers. My golf buddy owns a bauble store and he has dissertaioned for hours against silicon carbide.

Amazingly good campaign by DeBeers. They hit that special nerve in the female psyche and the result has thus self perpetuated.

P.S. Nice summation vid Racer-X

Indeed. If DeBeers were to release all the diamonds they have stashed in their vaults, diamonds would be as cheap as chips.
