That ring looks exactly like the Tiffany Legacy ring set with a 1 carat sapphire, which TIFFANY’s sells for $10,000 here in the US.  So yes, I definitely think its overpriced!  You can definitely get that setting elsewhere for much cheaper.

@Blue-Bird:Platinum in jewelry is usually 2x the gold price, even though raw platinum is only around 10% more expensive than (24k) gold.

If you find it in gold for 800, don’t let him charge you over 1600.

 

Did the price include the small diamonds, or just the platinum?

Glad you didnt buy it yet!

A plain platinum band for $5,000?! Even Tiffany sells plain platinum bands for less than that ($1550 AU)! And you’d better believe they’re marking it up! That’s insane!

I’m so glad you found someone reasonable. Let us know how the ring turns out, I’m sure it will be beautiful!

dont forget that AUS$  is not worth as much as US$   beofre making a comparison.

i would think that the ring is way overpriced,  just get the cheaper one and source the sapphire from elsewhere
