    Here is a bluenile search I did:


    many of them have slightly better stats and the one you are looking at, but the thing to remember is that perhaps squarish cushions cost more than more round ones. I would think that the price you were quoted for the stone you like is certainly not too far off from reasonable, but I’d say that you can probably talk him down. It is a B&M store, after all.

    ETA: would you be willing to buy online if the seller was willing to give you a video for optical properties? Bluenile stands behind the authenticity of their diamonds being real, so maybe you should consider buying online.

    I think it’s actually a good price. I know a lot of people mentioned blue nile; but one thing to keep in mind is that you SHOULD expect blue nile to be cheaper as their overhead is massively lower; so a jewler will also be more expensive. Specially because although I’ve heard blue nile’s service is great, one thing you cannot do is see the stone in person – and a lot of people may not feel comfortable buying a stone without seeing it (particularly if it’s a cushion).

    I went to blue nile for comparison and found a 1.26 ct cushion, H colour, SI1, very good cut for $6550.


    So the only difference between your stone is in the colour (one grade up) and .01 carat. So you could argue that blue nile is ‘cheaper’ but given the above, I think this puts your stone as a good deal 🙂

    Sorry, I didn’t realize that I had the same idea as everyone else!
