    When it comes to jewellery, I reckon EBay is about a good a source for information as your local mechanic.

    Take it to a real jeweller and get it appraised.

    And buying a 1/2 carat ring for $70 - is that REAL diamond zirconia? I bet she was thrilled.

    If it has poor clarity it is gonna go down in value. If it "turns yellow in some light" you may want to have it checked to make sure it's an actual diamond.

    May I ask who this guy is that's appraising it for you? Or is he the guy selling it?

    It was actually $200, but it was half off (on clerance) and I had an extra 30% off coupon. yeah, I am a cheap little boy.

    I found the diamond, I know its a real diamond for that much, and want to sell it, the one guy said it was worth 2500 or more, but I took it to one other place and he said maybe 500-600 so I don't know, I will get it looked at by a pro,

    Thanks

    All I know about diamonds is that their controlled by a cartel or two (De Biers, I think). There is no shortage of diamonds in the world the cartel/s simply keeps supplies low, and with the high demand for them, diamonds are in turn worth a bundle.

    Some "bad people" (crimelords) force people to mine diamonds outside of the cartel/s, so that they can provide diamonds for cheap. These diamonds are of course illegal "conflict diamonds" and are sworn against by the UN, yet there are no more force deaths or slave labor that goes into these then your average diamond store cut rocks.

    Guess that's just business.
