Go to Shannon Fine Jewelry on 1960 near Wunderlich. We've been using them for years, my wife is having a ring made there right now. Very nice, very reputable. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

then go to a big name jeweler, like at the mall or something. smaller jewelry shops will usually appraise you low, thinking you want to sell the ring to them. as for cleaning, i usually go to this jewelry shop off of kuykendahl and louetta called "Phi Jewelry" something like that to get my grill cleaned :icon_bigg *bling*

depending on the clarity and color of your diamond.....my guestimate would be worth between $800-$1200. but the jewelry shop won't give you no more than $300 probably. sell it on craigslist, and meet the potential buyers at the jewelry shop of their choice, and let them get it appraised.

For a 1 carat marquise cut....Just for the baguettes and ring maybe, considering when we bought he paid 7k for it. I think I can get more than 300 dollars. thanks!

$300 is shop prices and they'd probably go a little more than that depending on quality of the diamonds.

A jewler will give closer to the appraised value.....I'd say at least 50% of the appraised.
