Buying Diamond Earrings...

25 posts in this topic

...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 got a guy, but he's in Charlotte.

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.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
