Buying Diamond Earrings...

...As a gift for my wife this Christmas. Does anyone have any advice?

I'm wondering if the clarity is a huge deal on diamonds that aren't that big. I will probably go and look for myself, but wondering what common opinion is. I've found these, and they look good all around but the clarity rating is bad.

Clarity isn't as big an issue as it would be with a rock on her finger.

Blue nile is good. Diamond Direct is very good as well. They do 18 month financing with no interest. Clarity is overrated in my opinion. No one will look at her earrings with magnifying glass. Just make sure color is not yellow.

I bought something from Blue Nile just today for our anniv and they are fine.

However when I bought my wife diamond earrings 2 years a go I went through the diamond district in NYC and saved about 50% off blue nile. got 1c each diamond cut for $4500 and they were over $9,000 on blue nile. If you can ask around and find a good contact there it will save you tons. I know you don't have time to do it this time around but think about that in the future.

I went to Jared in greensboro over lunch, and return to these replies. I may return what I got, and order from Blue Nile. Are their products covered under any warranty?

I can vouch for this guy.

To me color is the most important thing on smaller diamonds.

Does he ship? I know pretty much exactly what I want now. 1/3 cttw, princess cut, 14k white gold.

blue nile is a little cheaper than what I paid for that, but Jared does their whole program with the warranty like free cleaning and inspection.

She uses something similar on her ring. Its the included warranty that's nice though. Peace of mind.
