Engagement Ring - CA or USA?

Hey - Starting initial research on getting engagement ring for my GF. I currently live in the USA and will be proposing in CA.

Is it cheaper to buy in Canada or USA? Any significant price difference? Is it worth the hassle in trying to sneak it over the border...?

Currently looking at bluenile and online but may decide to buy from retail outlet for convenience.

Online from the US and bring it in legally, pay the tax.

You already save on shipping this way and don't need to get black listed ever.
The Devil made me buy it - RFD. :twisted:

I bought mine at Bluenile, it is even more convenience than buying at stores. You pick the criteria that you want and have it shipped to you by Fedex from Seattle. I got it from order to my house (GTA) within 2-3 business days. Fully insured.
At stores, they tend to sell you the lower graded stone at the higher price.
After we married and we shop at the retail stores for the wedding band, we see $2999 for 1 carat diamond ring, wife and I both laugh what kind of diamond stone you going to get for 1 carat at this price. We end up buying our wedding band at Bluenile as well.

Website on Bluenile have a very good introduction of what you should look for on a diamond. (the 5 C)
You go with your budget and pick what means the most for you. Carat? Clarity? Color, etc...
