The price of diamonds

I was reading this story on a very popular evangelistic American preacher who may have been assaulted by her husband, which mentioned in her wedding a few years back she was given a 7.66-carat diamond.

I was curious as to how much a diamond like that costs. A quick search of bluenile.com gave me a range of $93,774 to $775,832. (They actually didn't have a 7.66-carat diamond, they peaked at 7.63.) That's a lot of cash for a preacher. Even a double income preacher household.
