Brian is right on in his assessment. For a diamond exactly like this, if you looked hard enough at classifieds, you might be able to find something a bit cheaper (maybe $500-$1000.00 max). Here, you are not paying a huge margin for the name. As I believe I said in the original post, you would pay 18-20K at Tiffany for this ring today. If you had another jeweler copy it, or make something similar with the same quality diamond, you could expect to pay $12,000.00 to $14,000.00.
