I’m a big fan of the “Hearts on Fire” engagment rings (like pictured below), but I can’t find on any of the retailers’ sites how much they cost. Does anyone know where I could find that information? Or know how much their settings usually are?

hi @cam18- i love Hearts on Fire! that is the brand i picked and my Fiance bought for me.
heres a pic of my ring:
i know we had a hard time finding out the prices of the rings online too so we just went to the retailer in our area. I was more big on quality than carat size so my Fiance got me a .75 carat round solitaire, white gold band (just like the image above) and i believe it was in the $7,000 range.
they are such beautiful rings! i loved seeing all the hearts in the microscope and our own security # in the diamond. I’d find the retailer and go to the store and just scope it out in person. Besides, that way you get to try them on!!! 😀

i have the same ring except yellow gold. i love it! mine is the Drostes version though…Drostes is such a great place; they have great quality diamonds 😀
I know bc my Fiance is an engineer and is totally detailed and that is teh only place he would buy any diamonds at 😀 so i suggest drostes!!
Mine is 14k yellow gold and a .51 karats. it was $3000
and it is absolutley beautiful!!

My setting alone was about $3K (18K white gold). I have the truly bridal leaf solitaire. The center stone he bought is not HoF because he could get an excellent diamond of the same size at a fraction of the price. You can’t tell.

Like JoJo said, you can get a comparable diamond elsewhere (I would actually say an even better diamond) for a fraction of the price of the HoF brand. Any time you go for big brand names, you are paying for just that – a name. Not that there is anything wrong with that! (I’ll admit to buying designer clothes, etc for the name!!) But, if you’d rather get more bang for your buck–if all you want to pay for is a high-quality diamond, there are many other options. A diamond’s cut is the single most influntial “c” toward it’s quality, and while HoF’s are well-cut, they are not the only ones that meet the standard they claim. I would strongly reccomend doing your research on Pricescope.com and even GoodOldGold.com, both are great resources!

Ooh– also wanted to say that I think that setting design with the pave leaves– is gorgeous! I would say that if you really like a setting from them, that is very unique like that, and wouldn’t want another jeweler to copy the design, then go for it! (but still consider shopping elsewhere for the stone 🙂

We picked out the round halo “Repertoire” ring….which I know is hidden somewhere in the house, just waiting to jump on my finger! I believe the band, minus the center stone was 2K or just under. The approx. price with center stone jumped to just over 10K. Not sure of the karat for that quote………

Hearts on Fire is really pretty but can be kind of expensive. If you have your heart on the setting, see if you can find your center stone elsewhere for more affordable. I tried on a 1.5 carat band and it was 8K. it had 5 stones. I found it elsewhere for more like 3K but still looked sparkly and pretty.

Go to a local jeweler. That’s what we did and all of the jeweler’s diamonds were purchased from private parties. We decided on the Hearts on Fire (.54 caret dream cut, similar to radiant) because it really was sparklier and more colorful than the others. It was also half the price of what people have described here. You really should see the diamond before you buy and not just buy online. Our local jeweler was also able to find or make any setting we could possibly want, so we weren’t limited by commercial availability.

I LOVE my hearts on fire diamond. If you can find a jeweler that has them ask to see them under the microscope. There are beautifully semetrical and it shows! Making perfect hearts, hence the name. Mine is always so sparkly. I get tons of comments on it! But with quality of course you pay the price. We live in Canada and my fiance phoned around and found the diamond he wanted in a showroom in the States that was at a discounted price then had it shipped here and set in a Simon G ring. He did good! And all on his own, I had no idea!
