Ouch!  Nothin' you can do about that one, saqsay.  ::)   You must have hit a sensitive spot - maybe he really IS cheap.  >:D 

Sad tho, 'cause I agree with you.  You can get a better quality stone/ring/pendant/bracelet/jewel of whatever type you prefer from DBL and pay less for a comparable piece than you would at any local jewelry store, mall store, or outlet, for sure - especially if you live in the US and  have no VAT tax(yet) or sales tax for out of state purchases.  (excluding loss leaders, of course - but when are those particularly fine quality?)  Then, too, if you shop at DBL, you'll never get something the lady next door bought, either.  Sounds like a win-win to me, but some people will keep their blinders on, no matter what.

I so agree with you guys about most stores you see at the malls.  When I was walking around this weekend looking to see what shape of stone I liked, I ran into some really bad ones.

I find the smaller owned places are far superior in general, and they try to take the time to know you.

One of the places I walked into though was just bad.  I told her I was on the hunt for a yellowish diamond and she showed me a J colored stone.  I told her lower.  When she called her rep she talked about a lower color and she said yeah L or so is good.  Ummmm... no.  The price of her stone she could offer me was way high and the stone was cut very deep.  It was a 3/4 that looked like a 1/2 carat and they were charging way too much for everything.  Not to mention the setting they were offering was about as thick as a wire.

I really am not a fan of some places and the chain stores are just the worst.

I like that look!

I think I'm going to save it in my idea folder for later!  Not the blue of course, but the idea of it is nice!!!!

But I really like a colored stone next to high whites.  Just a gorgeous combination!

Srsly, D!  Please park that baby's picture right next door to the pink and white oval 3 stone - One so soft and the other sharp. Each just stunning.
