    Tiffany rings are lovely and both of your choices are gorgeous but you should know that you can get very similar-looking rings from other vendors for a lot cheaper (which means you can get a bigger carat size).

    Have you got any clearer photos of the Novo? I like the solitaire based on the photos but I wonder which I’d prefer in real life!

    They are both very beautiful rings – great choices!

    You need to edit your poll though!

    The Novo is more glittery, but the classic is timeless! And you can get a super-glitzy wedding band!

    I have a sweet spot for the classic solitaire.. does it have to be from Tiffany? You could as lunalyra says, get this look much less expensively elsewhere. (I have heard the customer service is aewsome though)

    I went through this same debate for over a year.  The novo faces up smaller for the same ct weight in round.  I also wear gloves, so for me i liked the solitaire and the .56 shared prong tiff band.  It looks insanely sparkly together.  The novo band alone does nothing for me, and ive decided i like the sparkle from bigger diamonds then pave.  I made the sales associate wear the novo and i wore solitaire…he liked novo better. then we put on the wedding bands….he liked solitaire better. Then JUST wedding bands and he thought the .56ct shared prong looked way more substantial than the novo wb.

    Then because i value quality, i told the SO to get a Vatche U113 and an ideal cut stone…best of both worlds, cheaper and much better quality.  Most tiff stones are cut too deep, hiding carat weight and are not cut to ideal proportions. No one knows the brand name whenits on your finger.

    You really can’t make a wrong choice with either.

    @beebea35:  the classic definitely and then the glitzy band. Of course I am biased, I have the Tiffany & Co classic as a rhr!

    Nothing is like a Tiffany!Smile

    The Novo! But, I’m biased as my ring is a copy of it 🙂 It’s just so sparkly and I love the look of the cushion cut.

    Holy crap, every time someone posts any sort of designer ring, they get unsolicited comments about how they can get the same thing for cheaper. At the carat sizes the OP is posting, the difference between Tiffany (especially for the classic) and other ideal cut diamonds in platinum settings is negligible. 

    OP, though I love the Novo, the classic with a diamond wedding band is absolutely breathtaking. It’s a classic look, yet glitzy!

    @LoveLikeCrazy:  you said: “Then because i value quality, i told the SO to get a Vatche U113.. “

    You value “quality” so you bought a copy of a Tiffany & Co? huh?

    you said: ” Most tiff stones are cut too deep, hiding carat weight and are not cut to ideal proportions.”

    Not true, where did you get this from, the store selling you their diamond??

    @gemgirl6: I had a nice long reply to you, but in respect for the OP – i have decided to delete it.  I am not a Tiffany “hater” as every single piece of jewelry i own is tiffany and up until the last 6 months, i tried really hard to find a tiffany diamond i loved!

    Had a tiffany diamonds proportions lived up to MY expectations, which ill admit, im extremely OCD with all the numbers (much more than the normal person who looks at a diamond and just sees sparkle), i would have a bought a tiffany diamond, and we looked at MANY.

    The OP can’t go wrong with either ring.  And the lifetime warranty is good because she can walk into any store and get it serviced, polished, cleaned.

    @LoveLikeCrazy:  I think Tiffany is good for the consumer that doesn’t want to bring in idealscopes or bother with weighting clarity/cut/price. It’s a breezy way to buy a high quality stone. You basically weigh two Cs (colour and carat), and you can trust that the other two Cs won’t let you down. For me, I wanted a warmer stone with no yellow tints, so I didn’t weigh colour/price since ny parameters were set at G/H/I. I decided on carat size and looked at prices.

    Then I decided to get on Pricescope and weigh all my options like you, which led to a month research and comparing A LOT of different stones. In the end, we spent a few thousand less than the 1 carat Tiffany rings we were considering, and if I could have the Tiffany service on the Tacori setting I ended up with, I would certainly pay the premium for piece of mind and future resale value protection.
