Found 10th Dec 2009
Dear All,
I would like to get my wife a 1 carat diamond without the normal price tag. Does anyone know of some places where I could a decent 1 carat diamond for less than £1500.

It also needs to be exchangeable in case she does not like the design?

Any help gratefully received.

You may get one for that price but it will be dreadful quality.

+1 yes just asked my daughter who is in the trade and she said you need to be looking about the £2000-£2500 for a good one

Even that would be an average one.

For a flawless you would be looking at circa 5k.

Yes that's what my daughter said as well for a top quality stone

Apparently you can pick them up pretty cheaply in exchange for AK47's in Angola and places.

Seriously, you cannot go buying such stones unseen or over the net so you are going to have to give someone a profit.

The only way to do it is to go by yourself to a good jeweller and talk through your request. Get some ideas of price and learn about quality and clarity. See various settings, I like a 4 claw as a solitaire myself.

When you are done and you have set your grade and budget, then you can bring the missus into the store to have a look. Flick ipen a bottle of bubbly, if serious about spending the store should do this for you anyway.

In London I sometimes use Boodles boodles.co.uk/ and though they sell top dollar stuff, they are ok to deal in this range. You get quality, service, guarantees and often insurance for a year thrown in but you do have to give them a profit. However, the experience for the lady is everything and that starts with the choice. Buying it from a man in a pub or on the net may be cheaper but nowhere near the overall satisfaction.
