Mine’s the Selene ring and it turned out exactly like the photos of it online!

I think in person, they look a lot more delicate, which was a good surprise for me. All the lovely details show impressive craftsmanship. Yes, you do pay a premium price but overall it was a great experience, especially being able to have the comfort of trying on in person first, and free returns for any reason.

The only negative that I want to pass on from much researching, the very popular willow setting where it has marquise diamonds, people are unhappy that they often fall out because it’s only a two prong setting.

I have the Gramercy setting in Rose Gold! I have gotten so many compliments on it and people are always so impressed with it’s beauty. From the other BE rings I’ve seen on here (including all of the ones on this thread), they all seem to pack a punch and stand out a cut above the rest!

Threads like these are great! I scoured the internet looking for real life pics of Brilliant Earth settings and they are hard to find! I do have pictures in white gold that customer service sent as well of this setting matched with some of their wedding bands. Ill post at some point. 

I have the Imogen Setting in Rose Gold the quality and detail are stunning.

 

   

 

Here is mine with .85 ct diamond

I have the Half Moon ring and I agree with the others who say the rings are more delicate in person. In my case, I think part of this is because of my ring size (6.75) – I think the rings in the online pictures have got to be a much smaller size, maybe 5ish, because my band looks a lot narrower in person. Not a bad thing at all, just something that surprised me!

Many of the reviews on the BE website feature user-submitted pictures.

littlesheba :  Love seeing this one IRL! Absolutely gorgeous and wonderfully unique! Their designs continue to wow me.

I swear I did not find but ONE photo through all my trolling of Instagram, Facebook, Google, their site, etc. of my ring IRL. That’s why I like to post as many photos as I can to help others who are obsessive like me 🙂

cq123 :  Thank you! I initially wanted a solitaire but I love the complexity of the setting that you get with three stone rings, and this seemed like a perfect compromise. A friend told me that at first glance it looks like an East-West oval, and I love that idea!

Yours is beautiful too, and I especially love the warm diamond! It’s amazing how different it looks in the IRL photos compared to the website – it really is so helpful to see those pics when you’re trying to make a decision.
