Default diamond: purchase online?

Is it OK to purchase a loose diamond on-line? It seems you'd get a lower
price and greater variety, but the big disadvantage is that you wouldn't be
able to look at the stone. (Of course, presumably, there'd be some time
period during which it could be shipped back...and you'd want someone local
to appraise the stone)

If you buy locally, how much above the prices online should you be willing
to pay?

If you find someone that has sold tons of items and has been around
long enough you should have no problem getting your money back if
there is a problem. If it has been verified by EGL goto
http://www.eglusa.com/ and type in its number. Have it appraised for
yourself as soon as you get it.
