tjacob2014:  you got an outstanding deal on your entire set! I knew you got your ering for a great price, but i didnt know it was that amazing of a price! And i actually love your wedding band way more than the tacori version! The detail is stunning! Good choice 🙂

jean9baum:  Thank you! The engagement ring is appraised closer to $2,250. It was an estate piece so I got it for a steal from someone who really wanted to sell it. Verified the details too to be sure.

SomethingBlue1009:  I have been debating estate pieces. Any tips on what to look for or where to look?

jean9baum:  Mine was actually at a small jewelers (not department store) who had an estate case since she carried consignments. I’m not a superstitious person, but I would have even maybe considered pawn shops for a deal. I always think about mine since it’s an OEC, who loved it before me. A lot of the time children don’t want pieces in an estate and sell them or something along those lines. Always get it checked out afterward and get all of the paperwork though in case something doesn’t match up.

tjacob2014:  You guys were very smart; warranty, schmarranty, save the $. If you have insurance on the ring itself that’s all that matters. I think I like the amora gems better than F1. I’m a sucker for H&A cuts. Gorgeous ring, one of the best on the site.

MrsSparkleBee13:  thanks! I like the matching one from Tacori, but for some reason the straight band just looked so odd on my hand. Worked out well though 🙂

I wasn’t expecting a perfect diamond or an extravagant ring. My Fiance and I are in our early-mid twenties and both new teachers, so I’m surprised he actually spent what he ended up spending–I know for a fact it’s the biggest purchase of his life so far! The center stone is an I2 .5 carat center stone and the total weight of the ring is about .87. He spent a little less than about $1600 on the ring, though the original retail price was $3200. Sometimes I get ring envy when I look at 1 or 2 carat rings, but I just remind myself to keep feeling lucky and proud that my Fiance picked this out just for me!

nicestbee04:  here’s the finished set! Mounting cost was $60, so even combining cost of original with the upgrade, total is under $1000 for the ering.
