If you’re interested in really well-cut diamonds, I read this thread on the Pricescope forums:

http://www.pricescope.com/forum/rockytalky/tiffany-cut-round-brilliant-t59321.html

Take that info for what you will — vendors like Brian Gavin and Good Old Gold offer super-ideal cuts that typically perform better and cost less than Tiffany & Co stones.

I’m not going to dissuade you from getting what you want, but if you’re not solely interested in the brand name and were willing to put in a little more work (or willing to have the people at the Pricescope forums do most of the work for you), you could get something as good or better for far less money.

My tiffany is a .46 and I have a love hate relationship with it! LOL I love that its a tiffany ring, but no one else knows that it is unless I tell them, and im not that type of person, but I hate knowing I could have gotten something bigger for the same price he spent on my ring. Especially when people look at it and say “how cute”, and I see my friends 1 carat rings that are just gorgeous!! I get ring envy! The only plus side about it, is that I will upgrade in a few years and it retains its value with the company. Good luck!!

I have a Tiffany .58 princess cut and I love it. Size 5.25.

I won’t disagree that you do pay extra for the blue box but one thing to keep in mind is that all Tiffany engagement rings are platinum – white gold, which is cheaper, is not an option.

@cmbr:  +1 

hearts on fire diamonds are GORGEOUS. I ended up not choosing a diamond because I’m not a diamond lover but hearts on fire almost made me change my mind

I’m not trying to slam Tiffany & Co, just give you alternate options. If you love really well-cut diamonds, Whiteflash makes an amazing A Cut Above round — it literally doesn’t get better than that cut.

The Tiffany 0.5 carat classic solitaire starts at $3870

Here is a 0.5 carat ACA for $1830.

And a Tiffany-style setting in white gold for $340 and in platinum for $703.

The price difference on that is $1700 (for white gold). With that extra money you could get one of these 0.8 carat ACAs, or get the platinum setting and still be able to get the cheaper 0.8 carat ACA posted above. If you wanted to go down to expert selection cut, you could go even higher in carat size for that amount of money.

When I started looking at rings with my husband, we knew nothing. I was so thankful to learn so much from people here and from people at the Pricescope forums. We had a limited budget, so getting the most for our money was pretty crucial for us. If you want to go with Tiffany, go for it, I’d just recommend shopping around first.

@cmbr:  the OP explicitly posted that she did not want to get into this discussion, and you have now posted about it twice.

Wow.

@cmbr:  She doesn’t want alternate options. She’s stated that a few times already. We get it, Tiffany’s expensive. Some people want it, there’s no point in trying to talk them out of it. Hell, if I had the money, I’d be getting a Tiffany’s ring, even knowing everything I know. 

@letigre:  +100000 seriously.

@letigre:  

@mrspinesol:  

You’re right. I really wasn’t trying to thread-jack or be a bitch. I just know what it’s like to work with a limited budget and try to get what you want. OP, get what you love — I was just trying to provide alternate options.

My mother’s ring is a .56 carat Tiffany solitaire in yellow gold. I honestly never even knew it was Tiffany. I’ll see if I can get a pic.
