Wow, if an earring costs that much, I'm afraid to find out what a ring costs.... Meh, love is love. Then again, love is only true if the lady doesn't care about a huge freakin' stone, eh?

There are alternatives to diamonds, for loved ones looking to spend more on each other than a couple tiny rocks...

And no, I'm in no way affiliated with, well, anything. I actually just came across this site this week, but it definitely makes some good points...

@veronikaa: Yeah, I was thinking this is a woot site, where cheapsters of all stripes hang out. Who knew that 6 were holding out vast fortunes from the rest of us?

@jdougan273: I don't see how paying exorbitant amounts of money to an organisation that a) actively funds genocide and b) lies about the value of their product is a bad thing. Who doesn't value blood-stained pieces of carbon?

Hmm...Earnings or an LED/LCD Flat Panel? Not a real tough call here.

While I completely agree with the discussion of the real value of diamonds, and only would buy one when absolutely edicted by tradition, I need to point out that no item has value other than what it is perceived to be worth. An example:

If I gave my wife these earrings, there would be good times in the old household for many days. If she later found out they were not real diamonds, I perceive I would be sleeping on the couch for quite some time.

(What-You-Pay) + (What-You-Get-In-Return) = (Perceived-Value)

@zzzaap: Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend as the saying goes!
There are very special occasions when you gift Diamonds to your woman.

@justafreak: What will hold more value after 5 years? The LCD that you may purchase now may not even be around after 5 years!
Recent trends show that diamond prices are consistently going up for the past couple of years.

The description states G-H (White) Color but the certificate they have posted states F-G. Which is it?

vote-for1vote-against

not really a great deal for an I1 clarity diamond coming from EGL, which typically means its I2 for a GIA Cert...

@mystang1967: The diamonds are actually F-G in color.

@finediamonds9: Moissanite is also for people who'd rather not pay 10k for an engagement ring when that money could be put a lot better use....Joking about the TV aside.

Personally I think the whole diamond ring is crap anyway....a rather antiquated belief that diamonds are an expression of commitment and love. And while the cost of diamonds may be going up the average Joe who buys a diamond ring/pendant/whatever isn't going to turn any profit on them at all...we both know that. Diamonds are just a luxury item and status symbol that people need to make themselves feel important, nothing more. We all have our "diamonds" somewhere and we all spend money on crap we shouldn't on item that we feel give us status or help us pass up the Jones family down the street with a bigger better widget.

It's really just crap in the end, my 55" television included. And unless you mine the diamonds yourself...you can't be 100% sure they are conflict-free stones...we both know that as well.

No you can't know that the diamonds are conflict free. Unless of course you are on site when it is dug from the ground, you have full knowledge of the region you are in, you know the digger's background, and you know the real owner of the mine.

As for this deal, I would say buyer beware: the clarity is I1 which "will have a visible flaw which can be seen with the naked eye, but there should only be one major flaw which is not too obvious." (source: http://www.diamondinfo.org/content/diamond-clarity.php).

As I mentioned before, and I believe this about ANY jewelry you buy over the internet: caveat emptor!

@justafreak: wow dude, you only have a 55" tv. Mine is 65". I win, screw this deal its way to cheap.

lol just kidding, had to add my two cents...although that is the size of my tv incase anyone actually really cares, which I doubt!
