@holister:  Depends on the 4 C’s of the diamond and the type of metal the band is made from

@holister: adding more details would help fellow bee’s to respond. Also stating where you bought it too would help. If you bought it at a high-end jewelry store (e.g. tiffany, birks, etc.) then you were probably paying for the name.

My cousin’s .92 ct F VS1 was $4,500, so I do think thats way too much.

BlueNile prices an Internally Flawless, D color, VG cut .5 ct at $2800 and on a platinum band, $3500 would be reasonable. However, it doesn’t seem to be that high quality from what you’ve said; it’s overpriced.

@holister:  oops! sorry about that. I didn’t see that before you posted. we must have posted at the same time!

when we were looking for rings, I found spence diamonds to be pretty expensive, but if I can recall correctly, they had a good policy with the ring, so that can sometimes lead to the price being a bit more

@holister:  I think it is probably too much, yes. Mine is 18k white gold with 68 pave diamonds and a round brilliant G, VS1, 0.48ct Triple ex cut, H&A. Tcw of .99 and it was close your the price you said.

@holister:  It also depends on the cut and the shape. 

For example,

For just my center stone alone we paid $1,400. It’s an Emerald Cut shape, .5 carat, H color, a good cut, and VS1 Clarity. We would have paid a lot more for a round shape with everything else being the same, because round diamonds are more popular than emerald cuts-thus more expensive.

If its a Canadian diamond they are usually a bit more pricey since they’re not blood diamonds and all. So that may be why! 🙂

@holister:  Basically when diamonds are ethically sourced (like Canadian diamonds) no one got hurt in the process or under paid to mine the diamond out. You also know exactly where it came from.
