If I buy a diamond ring In Costco, am I getting a better deal than local store?

[2010-06-18 08:15:51]

I do not know anything about diamonds. I am a Costco shopper on almost anything, because I know it is all priced right. But diamonds and jewelry, I am not too sure.

Perhaps. Costco diamonds are diamonds just like the ones available in jewelry stores. I have researched their jewelry in the past. Costco doesn't have a huge selection and cannot special order or repair/service jewelry, but what they have is nice.

High gasoline prices boost cities' revenues

In the 1980s and 1990s halcyon days of economic development, cities would see dollar signs when they'd usher in a big box store or auto dealership. In the revenue game, sales tax is king and these big producers were treated as royalty. The changes began with the Great Recession of 2008, when commercial developers stopped biting as easy credit vaporized. Adding insult to injury, as the economy has begun rebounding, the state has swooped in and snatched away redevelopment, a potent tool for attracting such big producers, leaving an economic forecast that's cloudy for most local cities. Since the recession, cities have gradually been benefitting from rising gasoline prices.

how do I GENTLY talk him out of buying my diamond at Costco?

[2010-04-08 11:57:57]

I know he's looking for a ring and we've been looking at a lot of rings lately whenever we go out. I have a very different taste and like rings with character and a large stone. He doesn't have a lot of money saved up and can only afford something around

OKAY! so, i absolutely understand with what you are saying - though i DO think It's shallow.
