Diamonds or diamond rings (online or in Victoria BC) - any advice? cheaper in Oregon?

Hi gang,

I'm in the market for either a complete engagement ring, or just a standalone diamond, then having a ring made by a jeweller.

Are there any great places to buy diamonds, ideally for well below appraised value? I'm looking in Victoria, or online in Canada.

Also, is this an item that would be cheaper to buy in the US? If so, I'll look around when I'm in Oregon next (no sales tax).

Thoughts?

Thanks! Is it best to shop here from the US, or from Canada? Does it matter exchange rate wise? Often canadian stores are significantly more expensive than US stores, even after the exchange rate. I can conceivably get items shipped to Portland, which saves me sales tax.
