Any opinions or experience from either company would be helpful. I have read reviews and looked at rings made by both companies. Plus i have been to several jewelry store and outlets that carry “low quality” I1 and SI diamonds so I know what I am getting.Plus these pieces are way cheaper then they would be from a chain store or independent jeweler( for example I found ring#1 at SI quality for $5000 at a local jeweler). I would just like some feedback. Right now it is in-between two rings we like from both companies so basically I need to figure out were we are ordering from.
Here are the two rings:
World Jewels ring#1
Pompeii 3 ring#2
I LOVE ring #2 but the quality isn’t as great as ring #1

My opinion: If you love them both, go for the ring of better quality.

Both rings are gorgeous! I’d go for the one you like best!
I have purchased from pompeii3 (not diamond jewelry though) and can honestly say that they are great! Their work is quality, their customer service is awesome, and their prices are fair. You can call and ask if they have that ring with eye-clean stones if it’s the I1 that is bothering you. I think they’d be pretty honest.
I definitely agree that these prices are much more reasonable than that of chain stores. Also, remember that GIA certifications hold the highest industry standard when it comes to diamond grading. While I don’t at all believe that all stones should be graded, it is good to remember that grading is subjective. The rule is that a stone can be one grade up or one grade down on any of the four C’s. So if the stone is an H, one person may grade it as an I, and someone else may say it’s a G. Legally, one can claim that a diamond is an SI2 H color when in reality it is an I1 I color. Some companies out there would rate something SI2 H color so they can jack up the price while a more honest company would list it as an I1 I. I’m not suggesting that this is the case with either of the rings you selected, but it’s something to keep in mind.

@Koolbeans621:Ring #1 is amazing! I love how diamonds (and moissanite!) look in yellow gold. You could even get a very high clarity and very good cut by going down on the color–a lower color grade will still look really white against yellow gold.

If you say I should keep shopping, suggestions where would be awesome. The reason for picking both of these stores in that they match the quality of Zales or Fred Meyer. Plus World Jewels has a lifetime warranty(They call it lifetime maintenance but it covers everything a warranty would) and Pompeii 3 has a 5 yr warranty that you have to renew every 5 yrs.
I am so tired of researching places so I am soooo open to any other suggestions.

I have a pompeii3 ring. I was really happy with the customer service. Be sure to buy directly from their website and not from their amazon or ebay stores so that you get the full benefit of their services (free ring sizing, appraisal, return policy, etc) I’m really happy with my ring, it was worth the money definitely

I’m a pompeii3 bride as well. I love the quality of their ring. And even though he brought it from Amazon we still got all of the benefits, you just have to contact them and let them know that you brought it and it’s shipped directly from Pompeii3

Hard decision!!! Both are so pretty, but I voted for the canary yellow ring 🙂
