    Hi, I'n new here. I need your help. Let me explain.

    Last week my boyfriend proposed to me, yes he presented me with a ring, but no I hated it. So I told him so. He bought it at Christies, the auction. Its a 9ct marquis diamond with 2 smaller trillon cut diamonds flanked. He said if I wanted to I could sell this item at an auction in London along with matching earrings and necklace and could buy or make a new ring to my standards.

    I want to know where online I can find exotic rings that are expensive and beautiful. I don't know where I can find these items. Please Help.

    Personally I would go to a top jewellers and have a private consultation (but make sure you read up first because I've only ever met three jewellers who weren't con-artists). Great as the internet is, it's really not the place to buy fine jewellery...especially not for something as important as an engagement...

    :cry: i could never say i did like a ring after a proposal! didnt you feel horrible?
    9 carats? wow that extraordinary..... and i would say at least a million dollars.

    again i could never say take this back... it is the thought that counts but since you feel differently.... i would never buy anything like that online.

    As she's Miss Timberlake it's pretty unlikely...unless Justin has an incestous streak...

    That site looks very much like Blue Nile. Are the sites related?

    Technically the person who owns the most carat in one stone is dead.

    Bluenile looks like it's copied from Mondera in that case... :unsure:

    Anyone here bought from Bluenile before?

    and here are the owners.. in the league of GRAFF :wink:

    creators of mondera

    the one who set up mondera.com is the last guy: pascal

    if i were you i would just find a retailer that sells MOUAWAD. you'll be better off in that league :flower:

    How does one own anything if one is dead??? :huh: Perhaps one's heirs?

    Anyway, Blue Nile has always had good press. I don't know anyone who has ordered from them.

    I'm sure you're right. :flower:

    If your boyfriend, misstimberlake, is in the 9-carat zone, you won't want to be ordering online... :blink:

    Hey, thanks. I checked out MONDERA. Yeah thats something I like.

    P.S. it's not that I didn't like the ring, it just looked like my first engagment ring, that brought only disaster to the relationship and since I'm starting again I figured I should have something different.

    P.P.S it wasn't a million dollars. it was a $450 000. he bought it with inheritance.

    I did see a site offering a 12 carat pink diamond with blue white diamond cluster.
    i want something funky.

    trust your own style but i think with something you wear everyday...be careful to not get too "out there"... you dont want to look down at it 5 years from now and think what was i thinking!!!??!?!

    best of luck to you and i hope you get what you want..... :flower:

    i could always buy, take it to a local jeweller, have it values, check the Colour, clarity, etc.... and if it's worth it , keep it. or return it.. this site i saw the ring on has 60 day return .
