Has anyone heard of or used Danforthdiamond.com? We are in the process of looking for an engagement band and wedding band and they have a set there that I am absolutely in love with. On top of it, the prices are phenomenal. Apparently they are an online only company and I cannot find any reviews on them. So yeah, if anyone has used them or knows ANYTHING about them, I’d love to hear their experiences.

In my search for a diamond engagement ring, two online stores stood out:
blue nile: huge selection and good prices, policies. Downside is you won’t find a truely original setting.
lumera diamonds: great prices on loose diamonds. But unfortunately no settings beyond a basic solitaire.
Have you thought about buying the diamond online first (much less expensive than in a store) and then having a setting custom designed? That way you save money and get a one of a kind ring.

We bought our diamond from Blue Nile – against everyone’s advice, but they just hadn’t heard of them, and it is PERFECT. So, I highly recommend Blue Nile. My ring appraised at an expensive jewler for twice the price we paid. Just be sure everything is certified.

I’d check there status with the BBB. Thats at least a place to begin. I have heard of them and almost went with them, but instead went with a company called skyfacet who is online only. I should’ve researched better. It’s been a disaster. Just google them with the word complaints and you’ll see a lot of stories, and mine is among them. so please, anyone that may read this, do not go with skyfacet.com. They are even advertised in bridal magazines and the wedding channel, so don’t depend on a company being good just because people have heard of them.

I bought my wedding band there. It got here fast and is beautiful. We went with them because they use Canadian diamonds and recycled gold. I especially like how much info there is on their site. Overall I was happy. 🙂

Well we purchaseed both our wedding bands from skyfacet.com I could not be happier with there service. i purchased the wrong size for my diamond ring they sent me a fedex label to send it back to them. I recieved my new sized ring 2 days later. Now to find a nice dress! Anyone buy at Alfred Angelo before?

missrobot – i was on their site when i found this post! i am so loving their settings and i am a little suspicious that their prices are so low myself.
would love to hear if anyone has gotten an e-ring from danforthdiamonds…or if anyone has any feedback on lesser known online diamond/ring sites.

My engagement ring setting is from Danforth Diamond. I found them on my search for a palladium ring. Stronger than platinum, same price as gold 🙂 It took them several tries to make my setting in palladium, and I was afraid I’d have to find another setting, but after 3 attempts, I have a beautiful ring with a blue diamond center stone! Overall, we were pleased with their service and the final product, and if you’re ordering in gold or platinum there shouldn’t be any hiccups. Palladium might take a little longer.
This is the setting my fiance ordered for me:

Check out Mondera.com also. That’s who we went through to get my diamond and had it set locally. I’m pretty sure most of these websites (bluenile, etc. ) with the internative “choose your diamond” thing are all using the same diamond database (some will let you see pictures of each individual diamond, too – loved that!)…so shop around for those that have the best deal and reviews. I was very happy with our experience. Check online for coupon codes too, and lastly…. I have two credit cards…a Chase and a Discover that have a section of their online account website that lets you “shop through them” (i.e. click on a link to enter the store from the Discover card website, or the Chase rewards website) and then you get cash back based on a percentage of your purchase. We used our Chase card…got like 3% cashback and could get it at Mondera or Blue nile…
