Anyone have experience shopping with blue nile? I received an email from them advertising a sapphire sale and there was a three stone that I absolutely love. Bf and I looked at engagement rings in the spring and I have a three stone picked out, but the one from blue nile is soooooo much cheaper for almost the exact same thing. Just curious as to what other people thought of this site. The bf really doesn’t like the idea of buying online, but I’m trying to convince him, especially if it’s cheaper! Thanks in advance.

Both my engagement ring and wedding band is from Blue Nile. I’m happy with the quality and value.
I should mention that the diamond came from the NYC diamond district but that is only because we have a friend in the business. I wouldn’t hesitate purchasing a diamond or setting from BN. I’ll gladly order a right hand diamond band once we can afford to do so.

We poked around blue nile before finally deciding on a ring from james allen. The tipping point for us was that we could see actual 360° 20X View of every stone we were considering for purchase on JA’s website. Not so on blue nile. But both sites will save you a significant amount compared to most brick and mortar stores, with tons more stone choices

I had a wonderful experience buying my engagement ring from Blue Nile! When I was searching for rings online, I found this style, fell in love with it and could not find anything like it in stores. Budget was also a huge factor for me because in Australia everything seems to be way more expensive! While not all of the diamonds have the 360 degree 20x view options, I narrowed the list down to the diamonds that did, and refined the other diamond specifications I was after, and picked from those.
Blue Nile were great with emailing updates of the order at each stage (which was great because I was super anxious with the wait!) and delivery was seamless and super fast. I would 100% recommend! I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying my wedding band from Blue Nile as well
