“It’s doubtful,” says Eric Peerless, CTO of online diamond jeweler Since1910.com “What we have seen is an increase in shopping activity as more consumers are driven to the web in search of better deals on diamond rings and the ability to use the same comparison shopping technology they have become accustomed to in their routine purchases: airline tickets, clothing, hotels, and others.”
