I haven’t noticed a quality difference and I get compliments all the time.

My wedding set is from Shane Co, and although i’ve only had the engagment ring for about ten months it looks great still. Not anywhere near cheap. And like hunnysgethitched said, I also get complements all the time! i’ve also never heard anything about Shane Co being “cheap”. Walmart or department stores maybe but never Shane Co. It’s got a great reputation from what I’ve heard!

I have a diamond band from Shane Co and my e-ring will be from there as well. I’ve always thought their quality was way better than other chain jewelry stores. I looked at rings in Zales, Kay’s, etc. and all seemed to be slightly yellowish or not as sparkly. They’ve always had great customer service too. I wouldn’t worry about it, I’m sure your set will be beautiful!

I think you’re dealing wth a low-mid level chain.  They probably stock what their main demographics shop for. 

I do nt considerate high quality, but not everyone as a 30k budget.  And that’s okay!

My set was from Shane Co, and the quality is phenomenal. My diamond is GIA certified and the price was competitive. If you are really worried, ask to see the certification. Granted, I’m sure there may have lower quality diamonds but if you know what range your diamond is, they can accommodate your desires.

hmmm seeing that we spent around the 30 k mark….we got a great deal as compared to if we bought it at tiffany’s for 2 or 3 x the price…for the same GIA stone. Their maintenance and lifetime guarantee is amazing  and other places do not give you that. 

 

I always thought I would get my engagement ring from Tiffany’s ….especially being that I do love my brand names & yes I will admit that. But after seeing what such a mark up they have and the rude and horrible customer servicet they have, we decided to look elsewhwere.

I have the same set you have (in white gold and with the cathedral setting) and I get compliments on mine ALL the time.  It sparkles like crazy and I havent noticed any quality problems.  ShaneCo has an awesome guarantee, trade-up policy, sizing is free, soldering is free and you pay for that stuff elsewhere.  I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how awesome they look.

My step-mother’s set is from Shane Co.  She’s worn it non-stop for the past 25+ years, and has never had a bit of trouble.

We looked for a ring there. I think there quality was good, but there prices were kind of high for the amount your getting. But we also didnt have a high budget.

@Mrs McCain 2012:  Interesting.  Did they have what you were looking for in store or did t have to be ordered? We had a similar budget, and I just wasn’t impressed.  But it might have been what was in stock.

@Olive12:  Ditto.  You get a free certified appraisal with every Shane Co. and a free lifetime warranty.  I have no worries about the “quality” of my Shane Co. ring, I adore it!

What does “lower quality brand” mean exactly when it comes to diamonds?  If the diamonds are GIA certified, and you get a certificate of appraisal, then I’m not understanding why anyone would call those diamonds “lower quality.”  

Were they referring to the metals or bands themselves?

Shane Co. obviously isn’t high end (think Tiffany’s and Cartier) but it absolutely is not low end either. I have been super happy with my rings. If we had $30k to spend then maybe we would have looked for something that is considered “high end” but that just isn’t realistic for most people (us included!).
