I will be getting married this year, and will need to buy a diamond ring.
I've decided that this is a good opportunity to bring more companies on board with Bitcoin.
My fiancé agreed to allow me to buy the ring with Bitcoins, with the condition that I have it by the end of
That day is quickly approaching, so I need the Bitcoin community's help to make this happen.
Bitcoins are a perfect fit for online retailers of Diamonds.
Diamonds are a commodity that can easily be resold, and are not traceable, and are therefore a common target for thieves using stolen credit card numbers.
Bitcoin removes all of these risks.
My initial goal was to get www.bluenile.com
to accept Bitcoins as payment directly on their website.
BlueNile.com is the worlds largest online diamond retailer.
They are a publicly traded company with annual revenue of around $350M USD.
In several emails with Blue Nile, I have promised to buy a ring of at least $50,000 USD from them if they publicly accept Bitcoins on their website.
They have shown some interest, but have not given any kind of firm commitment yet.
I'm hoping that with some additional interest from the Bitcoin community, we can convince them to accept Bitcoins directly on their website.
If you agree with this idea, please contact them to let them know you would also like them to accept Bitcoins as payment.http://www.bluenile.com/contact-blue-nile
Your request will be even more influential if there is an actual product on their website that you promise to buy if they accept Bitcoin payments.

Lets make this happen!
