I would think they would give you the advertised price.  If you save that page and communicate with someone in authority, I’d think they might be able to work with you. Especially if there is a brick and mortar store too.  It’s worth a shot.  Good luck!

Is the from price maybe the setting price, i.e. no centre stone? It seems a LOT of money for just a setting though…

I wonder if the “starting from” price is just the setting and not a diamond. That being said, that must be some high quality 0.5 ct stone to be jacking up the price by 2500 GBP. I wonder if you could get him to buy the setting at 5500 and then buy your own loose stone to set in it.

Take the design to a local jeweller and ask them to price out a custom ring for you. My ring has a high quality 0.5 carat centre and it was waayyyyy less than that. I imagine having it custom made would still save you thousands of pounds over that price!

On bluenile.co.uk, an E colour, VS2 diamond with a “signature ideal” cut is only 1500 pounds. So, what the eff, Tiffany. Screw them.

There are tons of rings like Tiffany rings online– you can find a copy easily, and probably for half the price.  I love Tiffany’s, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think you can say it’s the “only ring [you] really liked.”

Im going to second BrightGreen , who said to get one custom made to look like the Tiffany ring. You’re just paying for the brand name. I can’t imagine ever paying that much for 1/2 carat.

I’ve looked at Tiffany. That price would be for the lowest color and clarity grade they offer :). Hope that helps.

That price seems ridiculous for a .5 ct stone to me…I’d shop around and see if you can get a jeweler to custom make you a copy before paying that much just for a brand name.

I’m sorry but even for Tiffany’s that is ridiculous. I wonder if Tiffany’s in the US is priced differently? A .5 carat diamond at Tiffany’s is about $3500 US.

You could get that for under 2000 USD here. 

I have a pear .75 ct solitaire, from Adiamor that was under 2000.  You could get a round for around the same price.

Not sure how the law works in UK, but I had a similar experience when shopping for DH’s wedding band. We found the perfect ring, it was a “design your own” option on through a European Designer who had a store near us. We designed it online, got the price printed it as instructed and made our appointment. To our surprise when we showed up for the appointment the ring designed was TRIPLE the price of what our print out said!!!!!

I consulted my laywer friend about this issue and he said internet prices aren’t like printed advertisements, they aren’t legally required to honor the price on their website. UGH! It’s probably just a sales tactic. Get them in the door, get them to fall in love with the ring, then bam! Here’s the real price.
