Mine! My darling is the petite shared prong ring with a princess cut center stone. I am 111% in love with it! Its friend the matching band is on it’s way to me right now! I’m stalking the tracking info obsessively.

I haven’t personally ordered from them, but have a friend who does quite often.  Her e-ring, their bands, her bridal jewelry, and bridal party gifts were all ordered from them, all in separate transactions (meaning many separate, positive experiences, not just one lucky time or something).  She highly recommends them to people all the time!

Here’s mine!  I really love the quality of my diamond (Canadian).  My fiance loves their service (has ordered two rings from them), and I’m happy with the thought that went into the design of their Luna ring.

The one tiiiiny thing is that there is a little teeny bit of the bezel around the diamond that reflects light differently, so it sometimes looks like an inclusion.  I’m sure I’m the only one who notices it.

I wanted to have it fixed and the ring resized (one resize is free within 30 days), but they said I might prefer to have it done locally.  I have been insanely busy and didn’t have time to find someone locally (I didn’t understand the logic of that response), but honestly I think I would have preferred to have it done by them – I may still try to pursue this despite the fact that 30 days have passed.

@zagora:  I’ve recently fallen in love with the channel set version of that ring!  It’s wonderful to see it on someone’s hand, and it looks perfect on you!  If you don’t mind my asking, what’s your ring size?  Just trying to get an idea of proportion as I’ve never seen anyone with the ring.

@abirdword:  Thank you!  It’s a .50 carat diamond, and the ring is sized as a 6.5, but I think I’m really 6.75.  (Can you say finger muffin top? 🙂

@Ms.GoodEarth:  I remember seeing that ring online!  I love their estate section, but wouldn’t have bought without being able to try on.  (We weren’t planning a West Coast visit anytime soon, though.)  Yours is gorgeous!

@zagora:  I ordered from their estate section but vastly overestimated the size of my finger. They couldn’t resize the ring that small (to a 4, so it’s not like the ring was ginormous) and we had to send it back. However, they were amazing about it. And, we created our own ring which is currently being made and will soon be on its way! I totally recommend them.

I love my brilliant earth ring- it sparkles like magic!! It is so elegant and classic looking, suits me perfectly and I get compliments on it all the time. My friend used to work there and she helped my Fiance pick it out. She spoke very highly of the quality and service there. (she quit to follow her dreams!)

@Ms.GoodEarth:  I may be the odd woman out here but we bought an antique ring from BE. I took it to 3 jewlers to get some opinions (initially I was lookign to get ti rezised but the first jewlwers reaction made me suspicious). All the jewlers were unanimous in saying I overpaid and two said that it wasn’t even antique. One jewler pointed out excatly why it was a reproduction. I was sad and returned the ring but I guess you get what you pay for…:(

 

They did provide very good customer service and have a giood refund policy.

Hi! I’m joining this conversation late… but if anybody with a brilliant earth wedding band is still following… could you comment on the wearability/comfort of the bands? I really love the delicate antique scroll wedding band, but I’m worried that it looks like a pretty thick band (width sticks out alot on your finger). Is this true? Does anybody have trouble wearing it because it presses against your other fingers when you close your fingers? 

THANKS! 🙂

Brilliant Earth refused to do business with me. I inquired about one of their settings and they told me unless I purchased their diamond, they would not do business with me.

I understand wanting to work with “ethical diamonds” (Most of the world’s diamonds are ethical at the moment), but you’re a business first.

@Hyperventilate:  I’m not. I refuse clients who I feel working for would violate my ethics. (Nothing to do with diamonds). So does Fiance. Our bills get paid and we sleep well. I don’t like the idea “you’re a business first.” I think that’s all wrong.
