The 2.50 looks great!
The 2.50 looks great!
The 2.5ct looks great on your hand! I have a Round Brilliant from Blue Nile, and I am very happy with it. The downside of ordering from Blue Nile is that you do not get to see the diamond prior to arrival. If you do your research on pricescope and figure out which angles are best and all that jazz, you can end up with a great diamond.
Both look great, but the 2.50 definitely has a wow-factor without being over the top, if you know what I mean! Great choices!
@Jacqui90: Tiffany’s is fab, but I personally dont need to have such a ring
@wntrwhte: i agree with you! I just went to Tiffany’s for browsing.
@Birdi: yea, i’m personally willing to go down in clarity and color to get the carat weight i’m hoping for.
@laceydoilies: We just went to Tiffany’s to check out various shapes/sizes. Before going, we didnt know that they have signature styles. The classic Tiffany’s solitaire would be nice, but I most certaintly dont want it for the mark-up price
@gemgirl6: never said I had to have Tiffany’s. Of course I know you cant get the setting alone. i’m still torn between oval/RB and solitaire/pave setting. I have been looking at EGL USA…i wouldnt mind getting it, but I know off the bat that where I would be comfortable with an #I/J in GIA, I’d have to get #E-G in EGL. I went to see some smaller stones this weekend, and saw an I from EGL USA…it was soo yellow . This is sooo much work!
@soy: i didnt know that they can pull a similar stone from BN , thank you! HCA and I are good pals, lol! Thanks for the address too, I have a list going for NYC Dear Daughter.
@megan331979: big fingers means more stone needed for finger coverage I guess…at least that which will suit my hands
@Lbward6: I totally agree with you! I could care less about having VVS or VS. As long as it’s not too yellow and I cant see black marks in it, i’m good!
@bkrocks13: +1. 2.5 carat diamond for $12,000? No way.
@colorfulevidence: Forgot to add, try some of the other high end jewelry stores in the city. The diamond will be less expensive than Tiffany’s but more expensive than diamond district or online. My SO purchased the diamond and setting from Michael C. Fina and he says the diamond price wasn’t that much higher from what he saw for similar on Pricescope.
We got a diamond from Blue Nile and had a custom setting made for it. I got what I liked about the Tiffany (tulip-set, open basket) without what I didn’t like (knife-edge, inconsistent quality, rough edges, attitude).
Mine is “only” about a carat, but that’s exactly what I wanted – I wouldn’t be able to wear a 2.5 in my everyday life.
@Jewelieee: thank you, my bf and I both think so too
@SunflowerGarden: I’m so glad you put it that way, as it’s exactly what I’m going for
@CityBearBride: your ring is amazing!! and we have the same size finger!! 1.89 ct is quite substantial, and your rings looks well over 2. Very nice work by your DH!
thank you for all your help and critique ladies!! I really do appreciate it, esp the referrals to jewelers in NYC.
My bf hinted at an engagment early next year..so still a few months away, but I can patiently wait, hehehe. So looking forward to looking at ovals in the Dear Daughter though!
