Mine is from brilliance.com and was appraised almost double what he paid.  Kind of related- I bought a ring from a market in Mumbai for about $2 while on vacation.  Found out later it was real gold and diamonds.  Surprise!

Zelda1:  What kind of appraisal did you get? Not to burst your bubble or anything, but most appraisals are for insurance purposes and appraisers will appraise it for about double (or 100% above) it’s cost/retail. It’s a fairly common practice.

But anywho, to answer your question, I did not buy my ring online, I bought it at Jared’s and an independent appraiser valued it at about double the purchase price.
