I’m brand spankin’ new to this whole thing and I just a question…
Has anyone ordered from a site called pompeii3.com? My boyfriend and I have looked at rings on just about every site in the entire universe now and I can’t seem to find something that I love that is within his budget on any of the usual sites (Jared, Kay, Zales, etc.) and he found the pompeii3 site and I immediately fell in love with a ring. The site just seems sort of…sketchy? I wanted to know if any other ladies had ordered from there and what their experiences were?

@raychul13: They have an etsy page. My fiance actually ordered me a non-wedding related ring for Christmas from there. He had me try it on to make sure it was the right size. It looks good!

I have heard mixed reviews. Some people get awesome quality and some people say that they feel like the rings quality is not that great.

@raychul13: I wouldn’t buy a center diamond from them, but I have a semi mount I got from them for a quartz I had set. With small melee diamonds, quality doesn’t really matter as much, but with large diamonds, their stuff are very low quality.

@raychul13: don’t do it!! I ordered a solitaire from them and It was a total fiasco and I lost $300 in a “restocking fee” it was total bullshit and I’m not sure why I didn’t fight to get that back!! I think I was just so over it and wanting my money back. They sell complete shit. Like honestly they sell diamonds that would NEVER even make it to a Kay’s case which already sells i1-2 diamonds. The diamonds are crap. they are mostly i3 clarity and look like what many jewelers call frozen spit aka cloudy and not sparkly. Please save yourself the trouble. I think their gold stuff and maybe even just the settings alone are ok but do not buy a center diamond ring from them you will be disappointed! Very poor quality.

Post the link to the ring and your budget. There are Bees who are experts at finding suitable alternatives.

I would suggest looking somewhere else. Their diamonds are mostly low quality and the craftsmanship is not great.
This ring is from pompeii3 , the diamonds are heavily included and have no sparkle, the metal wwork is messy and uneven.

that’s the ring that I picked out, it’s the only one I’ve found so far that I actually like. I have to stay under $400 (we’re young and on a tight budget, but that’s fine by me).

@raychul13: Because you guys are on a budget have you thought about getting a moissanite instead of a diamond? 🙂

@raychul13: I think I remember from another thread that you said this wasn’t your “forever” ring, right? Would you consider a moissanite, white sapphire or another gemstone ring? I don’t know about you but I’d rather have a great-looking moissy than a bad-looking diamond! Or maybe you could get a setting that you love but choose a CZ center stone that he can later replace with a diamond when your finances improve?
I’ve looked at pompeii3 too but eventually decided that while I may consider a setting from them, their center diamonds are just too heavily included.

yeah, this isn’t forever, just for a few years. I hadn’t really considered mossanite until now. I want to try and find something that looks similar to that ring (I LOVE halos on a round or brilliant cut). I definitely want something that looks as close to a diamond as I can get.

@raychul13: If you’re still looking and see this, try Ritani. Legitimately good diamonds, at the best prices for GIA/AGL that I’ve seen. Good luck! I’m in the same “hectic, trying to figure out where to buy from and what the 4Cs mean to me” boat.
