I’m curious to see some rings from that website as well! I’m considering upgrading my ring from one on this site and would love to hear some reviews and photos.

Hi bees! Wish I had found this post earlier, here is my e-ring from Brilliance.com! Couldn’t be happier with my ring, the diamond detail sweeping up the prongs was custom-designed by my fiance! Center stone is a square cushion, 1.03 carats, I color, VVS2 clarity and certified by GIA. Even with I color, it faces up very white. Band is 950 platinum. We were VERY happy with every aspect of Brilliance—the ring is phenomenal and they offer wonderful customer service!

I literally JUST placed an order through brilliance.com. My fiance and I purchased a 1.21 carat square cushion and we’re just beginning our custom design process. So far customer service has been fantastic!! I will upload pics and specifications as soon as I get my set!! We need to get the word out, why spend so much more $ at blue nile for the same quality stones?!!

@lilsweetie:  Oops! I’m sorry about that, I’ll post it again, along with the inspiration photo Darling Husband sent to Brilliance! I have to say that we were VERY happy with both the customer service and product πŸ™‚ We worked a lot with Kristen and Jonathon…both wonderful salespeople! They kept up correspondence with my now Darling Husband, and guided him through the entire design process. Their team even spent weeks trying to find the very best diamond within our budget!  I believe the total cost of my 1.05 carat square cushion (I color, ideal cut, and VS1 clarity) and custom 950 platinum setting was in the $5k range. This same ring of similar quality would most likely retail for close to $10k, so you will definitely get more rock for your buck! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ 

Here’s the inspiration photo we sent in. I requested the ring to be slightly thicker/more sturdy for everyday wear:

 

 

and this is what we got! Smile The band width was increased to around 2.5mm:

 

Couldn’t be happier with my ring! If you choose to work with Brilliance, I think you’ll have a great experience with them. Good luck!!

@gardenroses:  That looks amazing! I want mine done in platinum too and I am so glad to hear you had a good experience. That makes me feel so much better about working with them. Thank you and I love the setting you chose!

@lilsweetie:  Aww!! Well I am very happy to have been able to help you, and thank you for the sweet compliments! Since receiving the ring over 2 years ago and wearing it every day, the platinum has acquired very little patina and is still quite shiny! 

Ohhh snap…I just noticed in my previous post, I had said the diamond was VVS2, rather than VS1. I’m thinking the other diamond competing with this one had that specific grading, and we had its report in hand, too. It looks like I got the 2 diamonds mixed up! I’ve probably unknowingly called it one or the other on several occasions, and I feel bad about that! Also, the ctw is 1.05, and the center is 1.03 πŸ™‚ but I will say, that diamond has some crazy-big spread and fire for it’s size! It measures at 6.0mm, rather than the very frequent 5.5mm size I have seen in 1 carat cushions. I’d make sure to tell them that you want a rock with the very best proportions and cut for it’s size. They’ll make it happen!

Poor Darling Husband, he went through a ridiculous number of emails to inspect the CAD image, and I think it was the 3rd or 4th rendering that they got the thickness to his liking?  So I guess he “customized” the ring itself, and not the design. I’m thinking he decided to go with it when he saw the ring blown up to epic proportions on my desktop! hehe

I’m so excited for you! Can’t wait to see your gorgeous ring on here one day soon!! Smile

 

@adielej:  HOLY hand grenades! Your ring is flippin’ AMAZING!! It couldn’t possibly look prettier on your hand…straight-up perfection Cool woooooo, go Brilliance!

My custom set from Brillance. 1ct princess center stone, D color, VVS1, excellent cut. 2 quarter carat princess stones on each side. Band is 5 quarter carat princess stones.  Total ct weight for both rings is 3.25. Had to return my rings for re-sizing (sad), and so far customer service has been pretty good.
