The Mrs. Wants some diamond stud earrings for V.D. Where will I find the best deal in NOVA? Simple single round earrings is all she wants. Nothing fancy.

I would go to a pawn shop. If you buy wholesale you will pay way more than what they are worth.

Will the local pawnshops offer a fair price or do I need to barter? Realistically, how much less than resale percentage wise? Half off?

It can't hurt to try to barter, the worst they can say is that they won't barter. I would say half would be pretty fair but it depends on item and circumstances.

I learned this from my father and passed it on to my son. A very traditional way to buy high quality diamond jewelry at a great price.

Educate yourself on color, cut, clarity. Research precious metals and settings. Then decide a size you want and shop a few of the places around here. When you are satisfied that you know what you want and how much they cost here, take the Megabus from DC to NYC (that part is new for this generation; I took the Amtrak). Go to one of the basement diamond exchanges in midtown run by the Hasidics. You describe what you want and how much you want to spend. They tell you to come back in an hour. When you do, they will have what you want. Cash only.

This is what I would do. If you want diamonds... go to New York.

Hello. Diamonds are usually very expensive, so I don't sure that you will find some good discount. Maybe this will be some old model, but I don't recommend to buy such one. Better will be to choose from new jewelry, just make a research online, usually prices in internet are lower. Check for example this jewelry shop online, maybe there you will find something interesting!
