Buying Engagement Rings Online
: I'm dying to propose to my girlfriend, but I'm finding getting the most bang for my buck at retail stores. She told me about the New York Diamond Exchange (nydex.com), and we've found all kinds of GIA-certified stones there that seem like great deals. However, the idea of buying a diamond sight-unseen online scares both of us a little. Is there anything you can tell me about this specific outlet or buying online in general that might ease my concerns? This would allow me to get a 1.2-1.4 carat stone for what I would pay for a 1 carat at a local retail outlet if it works out.
