I had  a successful appointment this afternoon....well worth the 100 mile round trip.

Three platinum rings , one with a stunning 0.3 carat Marquise diamond !!

oooh..it depends on a lot of things....the colour, the clarity, the size !!...LOL...but...a bog standard price just for the diamond above 0.3 carat (about 8mm in length) would be circa  700-1000...it's difficult to be precise !!

The thing is  me young  laddio...the bigger the diamond the far far more expensive it is....a 4 carat is not twice the price of a two carat diamond...it's probably about 6-10 times the price.. the bigger they are...the rarer they are.

small diamonds for instance...those of only a single millimeter are about 3-5...whereas a 2mm diamond is about 25 !

I like white also but I really like the green one..LOL They are all quite beautiful.

Hey Carolyn How much are they..LOL I bet they are prettypricey.. I can't believe how much rings have gone up since We purchased my wedding rings.. they cost us a whole 400.00 dollars way back and they are simple teeny tiny diamondsBasicly chips, not whole stones . I like dainty rings... Althought that green diamond is still calling my name when I see it!! LOL...I must say it is pretty uh but I bet it is also very pricey!LOL..

These are pictures of very high quality fakes.  I showed these to the jewler here and he said the one with the large diamond, set in platinum, would cost around $15,000.00.  I'm thinking the fakes are looking better and better. ;D

As long as it's good quality, I love 'em.  In fact, I feel much more comfortable wearing a fake versus a $15,000.00 ring.  I have a few pairs of earrings that have the large real stones.  I hardly wear them for fear of losing them (which I've done once or twice and nearly had heart failure).

Lol.. My mum's done that before. She lost it whilst showering in a gym or something. Looked for ages around the floor, but never found it! She blamed it on the lack of "sticking" to the metal. ;D

I'm with ya on that.  I could not imagine spending that kind of money on jewelry.  That was the price to set it in platinum, I was so stunned I forgot to ask him about white gold.  At least with the fake, I can get the matching necklace, earrings and bracelet too. ;D

Erm. OK! What if a diamond which is initially worth $10,000,000 is given to you in a special offer of $1? :P
