I’m on the hunt for a 0.5 carat, Tiffanys Engagement ring! My Boyfriend has been sussing me out and he knows I have always wanted a Tiffanys, but I also do not want him spending a fortune because that could go toward a house, but the Tiffanys 0.5 carat round solitaire engaement ring is affordable and gorgeous, I am just unsure weather the diamond is really small and thats why it is affordable? and i would love to see it on someone, because I dont live anywhere near a tiffany store to go look at it in person. if you could help me out that would be amazing (if you dont have a Tiffany’s, any 0.5 carat diamond ring will give me an idea)

Just a quick note- when my fiance first took me engagement-ring-viewing, he took me to Tiffanys. Whenever I dreamed of my engagement ring, I had always envision the Tiffany’s Legacy. It was so exciting and we had the money for it. I tried it on- ugh! It looked awful on me! It’s not that Tiffanys isn’t beautiful, it is, but in truth I found rings I loved much better at different stores. They were like the legacy, but much better for my hand and style.
If you can find a way to try it on, I truly suggest you do, because you just never know what you will fall in love with. I suggest you also look at other places. Remember- someday that Tiffany name won’t matter as much as how much it compliments you and your hand 🙂 If that Tiffany ring is still calling to you though, go for it!
Best of luck!!

Tiffany Classic :)… 0.54c… It’s totally beatiful, epitome of class, but do wish I got a bigger stone…

And please don’t trust the website too much.. The price quoted for the rings approximately 0.5c ring is the barest minimum… When you select a stone, it could very well go up a few thousand dollars according to cut, clarity, color and carat…

i agree that the price on the website is not necessarily correct, on the website it quoted from $3500 for a 0.5 carat, my 0.61 carat F colour, VVSI clarity, brilliant cut, was $8850. It is the Tiffany Setting. and while it is true you can find somewhat cheaper styles that are very similar i would disagree with @LannaMi: that you should try on other styles, nothing wrong with wanting a Tiffany’s ring.
Here is my beauty 🙂 (I really need new photos of it, as soon as I find the cable to my camera to put them on the computer I will!)

@Jacqui I did try on other Tiffany’s rings. Nothing felt right to me, and if I hadn’t tried on other rings I would never have found my dream one 🙂 Like I said, if Tiffany’s still calls to you, you should absolutely go for it! My promise ring was a Tiffany’s ring (swan diamond in platinum) and I love Tiffany’s jewelry, but their engagement rings just weren’t what I was looking for. I was just sharing my experience and tips!

I’ll try and search for a pic for you, but I have a .51c Tiffany princess cut solitaire and love it!. The .51 is perfect for me. It’s big enough for me that I feel it looks good in proportion to my finger, but small enough that it doesn’t catch on everything.

OP, would you consider getting a Tiffany-style ring from another jeweler? Since Tiffany rings are so popular, many (most? all?) jewelers make rings that look just like them – they just don’t come in a blue box, don’t say “Tiffany & Co.” on the inside, and don’t have the mark-up. The jeweler Fiance and I used, for example, prices a .5 carat (D color, VVS1)solitare in a classic Tiffany-esque setting at over 1k less. You could get a bigger center stone and spend the same amount of money and no one would ever know!

@StL.Ashley: I believe in the original post she said she wanted a Tiffanys Engagement ring, not a replica. if she wants one nothing wrong with that! see my previous post. sorry if i am being snarky, it really irks me when someone tries to discourage someone from their dream of having a Tiffany’s ring just cos it’s Tiffany’s and is a little pricier

I second trying them on. I was really thinking I wanted the Tiffany but it didn’t look good on my hand. I think it was a combo of the knife edge and the band being a little thicker than I prefer. Like PP said, you can get a Tiffany style solitaire almost anywhere. If you love the Tiffany though, it’s probably worth the markup because they do have great service. But, I would advise you to try it on and make sure it is what you want! I have changed my mind so many times since starting ring shopping. You never know if what you like online will look the way you want it to on you.

Here’s my .38. I shopped around quite a bit, if you want a knife edge Tiffany style setting in platinum, you’re going to pay about $1K for it (give or take, depending on where you buy from). You might as well get the Tiffany ring, IMO. Mine is a VS1 Ex Ex Ex and I paid a pretty fair price.

Size is a personal perferance. you should also take into consideration the size of your finger and the bees that are posting photos of their rings. A .5 will look larger on a size 3 than someone who is a size 8.

I thought I wanted a Tiffany ring, but tried some on when I was in Chicago earlier this year and realized they were not for me.

I have a .78 Tiffany Novo, here is what it looks like on my size 3.5 finger! I never regreted paying brand name price for my ring, I knew I wanted Tiffany!
