    really informative post! I wished I knew all these before my hubby got me the engagement ring! Oh yeah I am still trying to find out if there is any sites out there which can tell you how to ‘recycle’ your diamond rings as it is hard to place a resale value on diamonds.

    msfairface: I think you need to actually visit a jeweller to get it assessed. One of my friend used to do that and then had her old pieces re-made. I no longer contact her but I know she went to someone at Lucky Plaza back then. But I suppose with this, you need to trust the person.
