Want to Buy Pink Diamond Engagement Ring

Recommended Posts

Hey

I am from Melbourne, Australia and my fiancé wants to gift me a pink diamond engagement ring. We are not sure about the price and how to make out if the stone is of good quality. I want to know where I can buy a genuine pink diamond engagement ring in Melbourne and the approximate price per carat. I believe, Pink Diamonds are very rare. Is it a good investment? Do I visit a regular jewellery store or order online?

Can somebody please shed more light on these issues?

Thanks.

There’s a lot of complications in what seems like a simple enough question. The first is in your name. Are you a representative of an Australian diamond company?

Very quickly, because I need to rush off somewhere else:

Prices start at a few thousands (for anything that can be seen and of natural colour) and end at several millions.

Quality is - within broad limits - in the eye of the beholder; some people prefer a large stone but not pure pink and heavily included; others want bright colour and are prepared to sacrifice size.

Yes, pink diamonds are very rare, but not necessarily a good investment.

You can order online (and save yourself a fair chunk of money in the process), but this present a significant risk that you may not get what you expect - there is a lot of photoshopping around, and coloured diamonds are worse than "whites" in this respect. Start from choosing the seller, rather than trying to select the diamond.

Where in Melbourne I have no idea.

However, I have to say that your username looks suspiciously like that of a trader, which begs the question: is this a genuine request for help?
