My only comment is that you’ll likely find much better quality for a lower price at one of the online retailers like blue nile or James Allen.

 

ETA I have a custom James Allen ring and I know Fiance spent YEARS researching price/quality/customization.

I have a shane co ring. We are upgrading but may go with an online seller like Brian gavin or James Allen.

I got my ring at Shane Co and they were awesome.  I didn’t design my ring but found that Shane Co had a wide variety of settings to choose, more than some of the other places I had looked at.  You pick your setting first and then pick the diamond you want in the setting.  This made finding a ring you really love easier because if there was a setting you just fell in love with, you could just get the diamond that you could afford for the setting and always upgrade the center stone later on if you want.  They will buy back your diamond for what you paid for it, and more if the stone is worth more at the time and use that towards ANY price stone you want to upgrade to.  Their customer service was great as well and since they are not paid a commission, we were not pushed into something we couldn’t afford.

 

 

Also…Shane Co has a great warranty…as long as you have it inspected every 6 months ALL of your stones(even the center stone) are covered if they happen to fall out.

Im a Shane Co gal…LOVE them.  Their warranty is excellent and the selection is amazing.  They will also size, re-dip, solder etc for life, for FREE!  I dont have anything bad to say about them.

I recently have had some dealings with Shane Co and had no problems at all! I recommend them. Honestly, they probably would give you a good deal on a setting but as far as a loose diamond, I would order from James Allen or Blue Nile.

@Willow1991:  Did you pick yours too?  I walked in with a printout from the website and knew it was perfect when I tried it on.  I tried on a couple more just to be sure and my husband loved this set best.  🙂

I also agree with those who suggested Blue Nile. They have so many more styles than many traditional brick and mortar stores. My stone is from James Allen, but my setting is a Tacori because Darling Husband didn’t love any of theirs. I will also say that my travel bands are from Shane and they do have excellent customer service (They have redipped my rings every six months like clockwork for free and are super friendly about cleaning all my rings when I go in).

Have you looked into getting a diamond online? We’re getting a loose diamond online and getting it set at Shane Co. I have heard HORROR stories about Jared’s customer service.. Seriously. Just go look at their Facebook its ALL complaints. 

That being said here’s why I suggest online: my best friend has a ring from Jared. I don’t know the exact price but her setting was around 1500 and her stone was around 5k. She has a 1 ct I color, si1 cushion cut. I was talking to her about my ring I’m planning on getting and she wishes her husband would’ve purchased online. I’m getting a 1 ct radiant, g color, vs2 for less than the price she got a lower color and clarity Stone for. retail stores are WAY overpriced. 

Im getting my stone from James Allen they have great customer service. The stone I found were about 4-5k Gia certified. I asked Shane co to find me a similar diamond that im getting that was Gia certified and the closest they could find was 5700. A thousand dollars more!

@bbsoon2be:  

very true. My store didn’t even have many gia certified stones. When I asked they told us that since grading is subjective it wasn’t important. Which is true to some degree but false at the sake time.

@Willow1991:  thats EXACTLY what they told us. they must train them to say “its subjective” i get that its subjective but I want the most strict certification possible. i asked thier online representative could only find me ONE GIA stone in the specs/ ratio that I wanted in thier entire inventory and there are at least 20-30 on James Allen.
