I haven’t bought anything from them, but I really love Brilliant Earth. The metals are recycled and all the stones conflict free. Are you looking for a solitaire? Let me do some playing! A friend of mine got her engagement ring from Blue NIle and loves it. They definitely have good quality.

On bluenile I found a

0.68-Carat Round Diamond

Ideal-cut, H-color, and SI1-clarity
for a little under 2500. And they have very simple solitaire settings for as low as 300 dollars, so it could definitely be done under 3K! H is considered near colorless (meaning you won’t see a color unless you were to put it side by side with a perfectly colorless diamond!)

0.70-Carat Princess Cut Diamond

Very Good-cut, E-color, and VS1-clarity

For just under 2500!

This one is slightly larger, but lower level of clarity and cut, around the same price!

This Very Good-cut, F-color, and SI1-clarity

A lot of Bee’s have gotten their rings from all kinds of places!  Hopefully they’ll chime in for you 🙂  I’m sure I’ve seen someone here with a BlueNile diamond just can’t think of who.  Ask around at local jeweler’s as well, a locally owned place might have a better price than a big chain.  Good luck!!
