Kim Kardashian's Husband Could Have Saved A Million On The Ring
I know that's mere pocket change with that group, but still, it bears mentioning in case any of you are thinking about purchasing an engagement ring for some TV cutie in the near future.
Says Ira Weissman from TruthAboutDiamonds.com:
"Most men are clueless when it comes to diamonds and end up paying much more than they need to because the industry talks them into features they don't need.
"Remember, diamonds are not commodities in the same way that gold is traded. Ultimately, a diamond is a retail item."
As for Kardashian's $2 million ring:
"If you found an Emerald cut VS2 clarity H color diamond online the same size as Kim Kardashian's, it would cost close to one million," says Weissman.
Both stones are identical to the naked eye, adds Weissman.
"Without a jeweler's loupe, absolutely no one on the planet can tell the difference between Kim Kardashian's stone and the stone that is almost a million dollars cheaper! "
That's great news!
Next time I buy an engagement ring, I will shop online and only spend a million dollars!
