My SO and I are just starting to venture into jewelry stores to look at e-rings, and we are realizing how woefully under-educated we are about diamonds and fine jewelry. Anyone have any great resources to share? We got an info sheet from one of the jewelers we talked to in the mall, but it’s hard to tell what’s part of the sales pitch and what’s factual.

Go to Pricescope (Rocky Talky would be a good forum, but there are also lots of articles there to read) if you want to learn about diamonds. They will likely encourage you to buy online from a trusted vendor (and there are many recommended there) versus local though, especially a mall jeweler. You can save a lot of the markup by buying online, but some prefer local for other reasons even with a markup. Either way, educate yourself more about the 4 Cs to be able to make great decisions with your dollars.

I would visit pricescope.com and see the people on the forums over there! They are the real experts 🙂
