Should I keep this diamond ring?
, 06:40 PM
My fiancee and I recently bought an estate ring in a small jewelry store in NY. We are considering whether to keep it or return it.
Here's the issue:
After bringing it home I realized it was originally from Zales (it says The Zales with a small diamond inside and then plat). It is a .61 VS1 (ugh - don't know the color scale, sorry) in their octaganal cut. The setting is platinum. It is very pretty, though doesn't have the fire of the European diamond I had originally (this is a replacement engagement ring - long story).
My two questions: 1. the ring was $1900. Sound fair? 2. I'm super worried, because other boards say that Zales settings are really crappy - and that the diamond is likely to fall out. How concerned should I be about that?
I'm not "wedded" to it, so to speak - at least not yet. But I was looking for an estate, .60 or bigger squarish-looking solitaire or solitaire with baguettes for $2,000-$2400.
I'm worried about it being from Zales. But I also worry that, if I return it, I won't ever find a ring in my price range. Thoughts?
