My first ever post here and hopefully not my last:)
My boyfriend and I have decided we are going to get engaged and have been looking at rings to get some inspiration and I’ve found the “one”. I am completely set on the De beers the promise ring and tried it on multiple times and taken down the relevant specs of the ring. I love the design but to be honest not too keen to pay the premium just for the brand.
I was actually wondering if any of you actually have a ring which looks just like this one, and where you got it from? Any pictures would be very appreciated!
Now I have done some research and I know Brian Gavin has a similar design called Double Band, but my concern is that their side diamonds are way to big; 0.015ct per side diamond compared to De Beers one 0.007 per side diamond which makes the band actually less thick and looks super nice and elegant on the finger. Having said that if you DO have the Brian Gavin double band engagement ring I would love to see some real life pictures of it! Thanks a lot!!
Below is a pic of the de beers ring I am completely obsessed about lol:

If it was between the two, I would pick BG. Far superior craftsmanship, but you are aware that with the BG ring you have to purchase the center stone separately? With the DB it appears to come with a .18ct center stone; if I am reading the description correctly. BG diamonds are gorgous and considered super ideals so you can’t go wrong there.

I also like the BG better even though they look so very similar.

Thanks both for your suggestions. Yes just have to really think whether I can get over my fear of buying blind.. Do you have a BG engagement ring? Would love to see it!

Gemvara has a ring that looks very similar to the DeBeers ring as well.

lindamorley88 : I do not have a BG diamond, mine is a family heirloom but I know people on Pricescope.com that have purchased and are very happy with his daimonds and jewelry

Have you thought about having a ring made to look like the DeBeers one? I went with David Klass and I’m pretty happy – his prices were really reasonable and he is very patient with brides! You just need to send him pictures and specifications and he can give you a quote.
