I got it yesterday. Me and my fiancé paid 2500 for it. It’s a halo set in white gold. (Half a carat centre stone and 0.75 tcw)
its from a jewellers that is well known but we weren’t told the clarity or colour of the diamonds. Is this normal? Or because its from a normal jewellers, im not sure that you would be told about any of that.
to be honest it isn’t a huge deal. The ring looks white and sparkly to me anyway. I was just curious?

The jeweler should provide a certificate that outlines the specs. You want that (1) to make sure you actually know what you bought and to make sure it’s worth it (2) for insurance purposes.

It is not normal to not release the specs. You absolutely should know.

A lot of the big high street jewellers over here dont provide specs with the rings as their diamonds are not certified, so the likes of Ernest Jones, H Samuel etc won’t provide this information, you could get it valued seperately to get the specs.

@debbieotoole: if they don’t supply you the specs, how do you know what you’re buying? would you buy a car without knowing the details? probably not.
it’s a gorgeous ring btw.

@mypinkshoes: I can only assume it’s less common for people to think about that over here, I only say that going by my experience, I had no idea about the 4 C’s and would have happily had a ring from anywhere, my husband had done research into rings and he was the one that educated me on the 4 C’s…
Most people I personally know over here have got there’s from a high st jeweller and the diamond is un certified, and they are not fussed about the spec, as said that’s only from my experience, they are still reputable jewellers though

You definitely need to get the certificate. Was it preset? Did you see the stone loose? Often times jewelers put a poorer quality stones in settings so you can’t see the flaws in it. It’s great that it looks good but you still need to know what you bought.
