And no again.
Only if you've got a brick and you can run really fast.
Why cold?
No specs of diamond,
And if you realise why diamonds are so expensive you'd probably not want to get it either.

They are not rare stones, it's been monopolised and marketed to be 'rare'. Unfortunately I did not know this till after I forked out on the engagement ring many moons ago.
While I agree with inquisitor, try telling that to your Mrs!
In scrap it's worth £1k max if it's a very good quality diamond.
solitare ?? bogus stone
This is an absurd price. If you want to see good value go to a jewellery auction, or many general sales inc decent pieces of second hand jewellery. A fraction of the price and some beautiful pieces to be found. You need to do your research first and check the items out properly prior to bidding but vintage pieces are tremendous value.

​indeed its crazy there not rare at all
Specs on the product page are I in colour and I2 in clarity.

Colour is OK not amazing, G/H would be better. Clarity is awful.

£3k is still far too high.

Diamonds are not rare, like molten iron isn't rare - but it's hard to get to, plus de beers controls the market....thus making them rare by a stockpiling and controlling volumes/prices.
Like another poster said you'd be lucky to get £1000 back for this after purchasing... when buying an engagement ring I bought a certified stone from Bluenile, and a platinum shank from a jewellers in the U.K... the total cost was about £4k. It was valued at £10k replacement cost for insurance purposes the day after... that will give you some idea on the markup that the high street chains place on poor quality stones. Do your research on diamonds before buying, a good quality stone looks so much better than the average/poor quality stones you'll find in high street stores.
i love how u all know so much about recoup value...and how u are all experts in the field. again down to personal preference on this. give the op a break.
