I am really confused as to where I should purchase my diamond ring from. I have a budget of £3200 and I want a solitaire with platinum band.
i have currently purchased a 0.4 carat from goldsmiths for 3k but I’ve found one in samara James for a 0.8 for the same price. When I called goldsmiths to cancel they said they would give me a offer for £3340 for a 0.5 blossom cut in platinum Insurance included.
i still haven’t tried tiffany. I am a size I but I’ve lost weight so when I put the weight back on and couple of years down the line a 0.4 might look too small.
What do you guys think? Is 0.5 small?

what are the stats on the .4 or .8? Have you checked online? James Allen, Adiamor, Blue Nile would be the best deal. I would skip Tiffany as theyre no good for getting the most out of your budget.

newlynewly: From the £ sign I guess you’re in the UK 😛 So I would suggest:
Browns (they have one in Westfield Stratford if you’re ever in London)
Pretty much anywhere in Hatton Garden in London
Or, if you’re a member and there’s one near you: Costco. My ring is from there and it was half the price I would have paid on the high street.

newlynewly: Also I don’t think 0.5 is small, especially not by European standards! 🙂

Here is a link to a bee who is selling a 1 carat princess cut solitaire & wedding band for around $3200. She may even split up the set if you just want the ering? Her name is MrsRuby.
