Well, maybe not really, although I love diamonds (reading about them, learning and just reading/watching people's reaction to these stones).

The reason I'm here, to be honest, is that I'm looking to get the best bang for an engagement ring I'm trying to sell. I am in the market for a 2.0-2.25ct Emerald cut Diamond to upgrade my fiancee's current 1.28ct Emerald cut diamond.

No scams from me, just hopefully a few laughs and a couple of deals. And drinks if you are in the Las Vegas area (on me of course)!

So, I'll let this thread run a couple days then I'll post information on the Sell forum. I don't have a good digital camera so please bare with the pictures, I promise this ring is beautiful, just the stone size isn't adequate. Any questions for me, about me, about the stone, please ask.

Welcome Adam! You can't trade in the 1.28ct toward the upgrade?

I could but their prices for what I want are ridiculous when I can find what I want for 3-6k cheaper than what they were offering for stones 1.89-2.25 in size. They offer me a trade-in if I spend 2x the price I paid. Which isn't a problem if they'd offer me a good price. But when I can go to their competitor and get it cheaper and prove it (by bringing in evidence of the price of the stone) and they refuse to negotiate then I won't be trading in. Obviously. So here I am now

That's a bummer. Are they offering you full retail value for your trade in? See the problem with selling a used ring is that you're not going to get full retail value, so you may take a big hit on the ring, but save on buying elsewhere. You'll have to weigh the differences.

Good luck. We'd love to see pictures soon!

We'll see what I can get, if anything. I think I got a great deal all around so I don't know if I'll take a huge hit. They are offering the price I paid - not sure if that's what you mean by "full retail" because a similar diamond is a bit more expensive (price in showcase).

I'm trying to get my hands on a decent digital camera, only one I have is a 5 year old Optio.

Thanks for the reply

-Adam
