So my boyfriend keeps talking marriage and I've already been told that I'll get to pick out my own ring (we're not officially engaged yet, he's working up the nerve ). So ladies I'm thinking of getting a canary diamond or maybe another colored diamond. Has anyone bought colored diamonds? Is it best if I go to the diamond district in NYC, buy off eBay and then get the stone checked out elsewhere? I'm in DC btw. I have no idea what my budget is, but I think despite what he offers I'll keep it around 10k, I just wouldn't be comfortable wearing much more than that! (Btw. do people really follow the so-called three month rule? I can't imagine. I'd be worried about being mugged in broad daylight or losing the ring).
