Diamond Ring Prices.xls
The source of the data is a full page advertisement placed in the Straits Times newspaper issue of February 29, 1992, by a Singapore-based retailer of diamond jewelry. The advertisement contained pictures of diamond rings and listed their prices, diamond content, and gold purity. Only 20K ladies' rings, each mounted with a single diamond stone, were considered for this study. 20K rings are made with gold of 20 carat purity. (Pure gold is rated as 24K.) There were 48 such rings of varying designs. The weights of the diamond stones ranged from 0.12 to 0.35 carats (a one carat diamond stone weighs 0.2 gram) and were priced between $223 and $1086. The jewelry store adopted a fixed-price policy. How Is Jewelry Priced? In Singapore, the pricing of gold jewelry is simple. The price equals the current market value of the gold content (i.e., weight times the going rate per gram of gold) plus a craftsmanship fee. However, the pricing of other jewelry like diamond rings is more complicated because they are not as standardized as gold jewelry. The price of diamond jewelry depends on the four C's: caratage, cut, colour, and clarity of the diamond stone. A good cut gives a diamond more sparkle. Colourless diamonds are the most prized. A flawless diamond has maximum clarity because the passage of light is unimpeded through the stone. Cut, colour, and clarity are subjective factors and are very hard for the layman to gauge.

Survey: Is college worth These women take a look at the cost of childcare and maternity leave and realize it doesn’t make financial sense to keep working. These are willing participants in the workforce who are being pushed out by lack of paid parental leave and childcare policies. Encourage working mothers has huge impact on the economic dynamic in the country, “According to a 2011 study by California's Center for Economic and Policy Research after the state implemented paid leave, 91% of businesses said it had a positive effect on profitability or no effect at all — that is, it didn't show any disadvantages whatsoever. It just makes good economic sense, and not just for women. Economists have found that when people are offered paid leave, they take it, which lessens their like hood to drop out of the workforce completely.” (Lyndsey). , “ keeping all people who want to be in the workforce is crucial if the United States is going to remain competitive in the global economy, and supporting working families is the single most impactful way to do it.”(Beall) it?
This data set was collected via a StatCrunch survey. Respondents were asked if they think college is a good financial decision, if they currently attend or have attended college, their gender and their age.
