Hello fellow bees!
My long-term BF and I are looking to get engaged in the next year, and we’ve been looking at rings. I’ve fallen in love with Tacori’s Oval 2620, and am actually considering it in rose gold. We’ve been to Benari Jewelers and a couple other retailers who carry Tacori, but none have any oval 2620 models, much less in rose gold. I’m wondering if anyone has a Tacori Oval 2620 (would love to see pics!) and opinions on the rose gold. I’m fair skinned with light eyes and hair, and feel that the warm, pink tone looks good on me, but I’m scared rose gold’s popularity is going to be shortly lived, leaving me with a beautiful, extremely expensive ring that everyone else views as gaudy for the rest of my life. Basically, I want something timeless because it will be with me for the rest of my life, but am so IN LOVE with the rose gold. Thoughts bees?

@emc336: First off, I love oval stones (but I’m biased) and think the setting itself is classic – clean, just a little extra sparkle, and not too over the top. If you love rose gold, get it. Who cares what “trends” dictate. I would suggest asking the jeweler to get that setting in. If you really think this could be “the one” then they should be able to get a sample in. Our jeweler did that for us on multiple occasions before we decided to go the full custom route. If they are a licensed Tacori retailer, they should have access to that ring.

Since every Tacori piece is made by hand, it can be customized. My ring is the 2604 and while it was made for a round, I have it set with nearly a 2ct emerald. I did not change the metal (I have a platinum ring) but am sure that can be done too. Bear in mind that Tacori charges for modifications(about $400 for my ring) so you may or may not incur those.
Btw-Sorry I don’t have a pic of your dream ring to post (or mine for that matter as its being cleaned by Tacori at the moment), but I just wanted to share that it can be done. Happy ring shopping!

Keep in mind that the Tacori rose gold is 18k and a more mellow yellow than pink. My jeweller didn’t have any rose gold as samples, but they did have a Tacori wedding band in rose gold. I really disliked the color compared to 18k rose gold from other designers.
You can ask your jeweller to contact Tacori for a picture of an oval 2620. My ring (2535) was rare, and they didn’t have a picture or sample of it in rose gold. I found it more helpful to livechat with since1810.com and ask them questions instead. Because they are an online retailer, they have ready access to a lot of pictures from Tacori.

We couldn’t find my ring anywhere (Tacori 2641), but I really wanted to try it on or see it before we kept looking. We just asked the jeweler and they contacted Tacori to ask them to send a ring in my size. A couple days later, I got to try on the setting 😀
And I’m glad we did, it was the one!

Oooo I just watched the YouTube video, and that ring is awesome! The rose gold makes it look so vintage! I agree with pp, there shouldn’t be any problem getting a sample setting shipped to your authorized dealer.
I loooove Tacori!! 🙂

@mypinkshoes: WOW great find! that video was immensely helpful. The color is more red/orange than I expected tho! I was hoping for a blushing pink 🙁
