|Ask HN: How have HN readers bought diamond engagement rings?|

|I need to buy a diamond engagement ring, but buying a diamond is really expensive and really confusing; to learn enough to understand what I'm doing would take weeks or months of study, and even then I might do it wrong. Plus, investing the time isn't worthwhile for something that I'll buy at most a couple of times in my life.|
So, HN readers who are engaged or married: How did you buy your ring? Has anyone founded a startup to try and make this process easier? The closest thing I've found is My Trio Rings: http://www.mytriorings.com/ . Has anyone used them?
(Background: Diamonds are basically a cartel, as was discussed on HN: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4535611 . In my case, not buying a diamond is not an option, although I have tried to explore this option.)
