I have never bought a ring from Kohls, but there are other jewellery stores that have her rings, I would suggest one of them first. If something happened they could repair or replace the ring much easier I would think.

SO purchased my promise ring for me at Kohls. It is definitely not a $2500 Vera Wang, so keep that in mind. It is a sterling silver birthstone ring. After about six months of ownage, the center stone fell out and it had to be repaired. Kohls was not willing to repair and I doubt they even have the capacity to do that in store. The best they can offer is a replacement, and that’s only if the ring had problems within their return period and I held onto the receipt. 

 

However, I know your Vera ring will be quite durable for starters. Kohls could also have some type of insurance on their more expensive rings. Why don’t you talk to a salesperson and find out how ring repairs or replacements work with your particular choice here?

If you want a ring with that much pave, go somewhere with a good warranty/repair policy.

@Meglin:  there is no way I would spend that kind of money on a ring at Kohls. That’s a decent budget and you could find a nice quality ring at a real jewelry store for that.

I would not pay $7k for a ring from Kohls – especially an I-clarity. You can get a high quality 1 carat for that price from a local jeweler.  Pave sidestones may fall out over time, so I’d go with a local jeweler who will replace them for free for life.

That ring is way overpriced.

I wish I had some experience to offer with kohls jewelry. My husband got my ring from a similar department store (Bon Ton) and it’s held up wonderfully. I’ve had no problems with it so I haven’t had to experience any of the customer service or repair services. When we bought the ring I asked what sort of garuntee and repair they offer and the sales woman said “Bon Ton stands by the quailty of their jewelry. If you have any problems just come in and let me know.”

I looked through some of the Vera collection on Kohl’s website and I’ve been drooling all afternoon. I love all the floral and lace-like details. They really are some gorgeous rings and decently priced, in my opinion! When I was shopping for a floral ring, nothing came close for under 2k.

 

I can’t believe this beauty is on sale for $900!

You just have to love it and you’ll know in your heart if it’s worth it.

Doing a price comparison with the Pricescope search, the center diamond (0.5 carat, ungraded I, I2) is worth about $450-500. A similar setting from Gabriel and Co is $990 http://www.gabrielny.com/engaged/style/ER9337W44JJ

This one from James Allen is $1450 http://www.jamesallen.com/engagement-rings/halo/14k-white-gold-pave-halo-and-twisted-shank-solitaire-item-6879

The settings aren’t a perfect match, but that should give you an idea.

There are lots of less expensive options with better specifications.

That isn’t exact, but it’s a similar look, only $751 less and H color and VS1 clarity. And I’m sure you can find plenty of others that are also similar but less expensive. I can’t believe they have that listed at $7k!! Even though they are offering all those discounts to bring it down, it’s crazy that someone could go on there right now and pay that much for it. I’ve also read here on WB that the Vera Wang rings don’t appraise very well.

@Meglin:  No problem! My fiance and I learned a ton about diamonds when we were ring shopping, mostly because we’re poor grad students and wanted to get the most bang for our buck. If you’re interested in learning more, the Pricescope website and forums are awesome. You can post on their RockyTalky forum with your budget and the super-knowledgable people there will help you find what you’re looking for.

With diamonds, you really get what you pay for (although if you go to a store like Zales or Helzberg, you’re probably going to get ripped off. My ring would have cost double at one of those stores had we not gotten it online). I’d stick with reputable vendors, both in person and online.

JamesAllen.com is a great place to go because you can see pictures of the diamonds and get an idea of how much things would cost. BlueNile.com is also good, but you can’t see pictures of most of their diamonds. Whiteflash.com and GoodOldGold.com are awesome, but they tend to be pricier.
