deal on 98 facets

We are currently looking at engagement rings, but find it really difficult to figure out if we are offered a good deal.
We have found a ring ($2000 for the setting containing 14k white gold 0.4c diamonds -don't know the clarity-they aren't big) and then the center diamond is a SI 0.81C with 98 facets i believe (certified). The price without tax is about $6400. Is this a good deal?

Solitare Engagement Ring

My question is regarding a solitare engagement ring. The diamond is .56ct ideal cut, with a color rating of I and a clarity rating of SI1. The setting is a thin 14k white gold band with 6 prongs. The diamond is very pretty and is a certified stone from EGL US. The price the jeweler gave me was $1700, but the original cost was around $3900, which is what the paperwork on the diamond appraised it as. Regardless, I'm going to get the ring because my girlfriend liked it the best, but I'm wondering if the original price is even close to the actual worth. Thanks.

submitted worksheet for est value of diamond

Hi. Watched your video prior to filling out the worksheet, and of course was one of those suckers that back in 1980 bought just what you showed. Ignorance is NOT bliss but costly when you put your trust in the wrong people. Would like to know what we can expect to get for the diamond we have and how to go about getting the top dollar. Thank you.

Your opinion on this diamond

Hi there. I am seriously considering purchasing a radiant cut diamond and would like your opinion on whether or not I'm getting a fair deal. I hope you can help. Here are the specs:
Measurements: 6.68×5.45×3.73mm
1.09, J, VVS2
Polish and symmetry: both Very Good
Fluorescence: Strong Blue
Depth: 68.4%
Table: 66%
Girdle: slightly thick to thick, faceted
Culet: none
The reference diagrams note 3 Chips and 1 small Cloud

All info is from the GIA report.
The jeweler is asking for $4600. It looks like a beautiful stone to me- however when I look online and compare it to other stones with similar specs it seems to be quite overpriced. How much do you think is a fair price for the stone? I would appreciate your input. Thanks!

Princess Cut Diamond Ring (2)

I originally had the question about the Princess Cut Diamond Ring.
It is an 18kt white gold ring, with three diamonds. The center diamond is .5kt. It has tiny diamonds around all three stones. It also has three small diamonds going down each side of the ring. It is a size 6.5.
I am unsure if the location of the appraisal will effect the value of the ring. I am just confused how several people would tell me it could sell for $6,000+ but the appraisal say it is only worth $3,300. Is it possible that even if the ring is only insured for $3,300 that I could still sell it for more?
I really just want to get rid of this ring and I am not sure of how to sell it or how much to sell it for. I appreciate your time and any advice you can give me!

Princess Cut Diamond Ring

I am trying to sell my diamond engagement ring. I took it to a few different places they all said it could sell for $6,000+. I had it actually appraised and it said the value of an insurance replacement would only be $3,300. What does this really mean? Is the insured value different than the retail value?

Wedding Ring- Full Diamond Band

Hi,

I was wondering how much a full band princess cut diamond wedding ring would cost?

I would like it to be platinum and each stone to be set with it's own prongs, not within a band.

Also, around a carat in total, roughly.

Thanks so much,
Sara.

Trade in Ring

I'm getting ready to buy my girlfriend an engagement ring. My father has been kind enough to provide me with my step mom's old ring for trade or re-setting the diamond. My question is, he has the original certificate from 1989 stating a value of $5k for the ring (3/4c), what kind of value can I expect to get for that in trade?
