Wasn't sure exactly where to post this, but I am going to be in NYC for a few days, but will be on a pretty tight schedule.  I would like to pick up a nice gift for my better half during that time, however, when it comes to jewellery, I'm admittedly an idiot. I mean, I know the difference between a VVS1 and SI3 diamond and generally have some idea of what things are worth, but I think that I all too often end up spending more as I end up in places like Tiffany, Cartier, etc.  Ideally, I'd be looking at picking up some sort of diamond jewellery, but I have no idea where to go other than the usual suspects.  I have strolled through the diamond district, but I have gotten the distinct impression from some discussions there that I am getting an even worse deal there than on 5th Ave.  I also feel like at a place like Tiffany, there is less likelihood of being duped. Any tips on where to shop, who to talk to, etc. would be very much appreciated.  There's more than enough discussion around here about where to buy stuff for ourselves, why not some discussion about where to buy for others?
