Underwriters for Blue Nile Inc. have set the terms of the company’s initial public offering, which at press time was pending, at 3.74 million common shares with a price of $17.50 to $19.50 a share, according to a report by the Associated Press. The Seattle-based company said it is selling 2 million shares, while shareholders are selling the rest, the AP reported.
