Last year we sold my engagement ring and put the money into our HSA and my Roth IRA. Since I still liked the look of diamonds, but not the price or the ethical issues, we bought a new ring from Diamond Nexus Labs. It cost $231, and looks just as good a year later as it did when we first got it. I get far more compliments on it than I did on my original $2000 diamond ring, and I actually like this one better.
Last week, I got a gift card in the mail from Diamond Nexus Labs. It’s worth $100, but you have to spend $250 to redeem it. Their stuff is already very reasonably priced – I wish we had known about them when we first went shopping for an engagement ring… then we wouldn’t have had to take a $900 hit when we sold it. There is a ton of great stuff in the $250 range, and with the gift card, it would only cost $150.
I thought about buying a necklace, but I’m just not that much of a fancy jewelry girl. I love my engagement/wedding rings, but everything else I wear tends to be novelty stuff, not diamonds. But for someone who likes diamond jewelry, the gift card could be a lot of fun. So…. I’m going to give it away to one of my readers. All you have to do is leave a comment, and you’ll be entered in a random drawing. I’ll announce the winner on August 2nd (the gift card has to be redeemed by 9/30/08). (and no, DNL isn’t paying me to talk up their stuff – that would be sweet though…)
