Mrszee:  I looked on their website and it stated this


<h2 style=”font: 22px/normal Georgia; font-size-adjust: none; font-stretch: normal;”>100% Full Refund</h2>

We stand behind every item we sell and we want you to experience total satisfaction with your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you may return it within 60 days for a full refund or exchange – no questions asked. Many retailers charge a restocking fee for returns; we don’t charge you a cent.”


So hopefully you’ll get your ring before the 60 days are up and then you can nicely tell your Fiance that you would like to look at a different ring if it wont hurt his feelings.


But you have to be open and honest with your SO if your not going to like it and wont ever wear it this will hurt him more in the long run, but I looked at the link you posted. It’s a pretty ring! I like it a lot.

Plus who cares if it’s not a “perfect diamond” i dont have a perfect diamond. mine has some flaws, but she still sparkles like you wouldn’t believe.

If that’s the ring you really wanted then go for it! But like i said before. behonest with your SO and most importanly be happy. HE BOUGHT YOU A RING! EEEKKKKK 😀

Don’t get hung up on the stats- that’s what the Bee does. The truth is there are plenty off bees with less than perfect diamonds- in fact the vast majority of people have less than perfect diamonds and they are still awesome and sparkly. So don’t stress until you see it. You can’t really bring it up till he gives it to you.

and it will still be a surprise! You don’t know when it’s coming. The TOTAL surprise thing is mostly a fantasy. Again, most ladies these days had some sort of hand in the ring (no pun intended) so just enjoy the excitement and expense!

I’m sure it will be beautiful!  Don’t get stuck on the specs…two diamonds with the same specs can look totally different.

MrsBuesleBee is right…..:  My diamond is less than perfect.  We sacrificed on color (the least important “C” to me) to get a superior cut and better clarity.  Everyone in my office comments on how colorless my diamond is.  It is, in fact, not in the colorless range.  But to the untrained eye, like mine, it looks great and it sparkles like mad!

I would not sweat the diamond stats.  When you see it, it will probably look great to you.  You aren’t a jeweler and are not trained so see every flaw.

FWIW, I don’t find color a flaw.  I don’t mind warmer diamonds….

MrsBuesleBee:  You are so right!

My ring is from Zales and my bands are from Helzberg. The ‘Bee loves to hate on chain jewelery stores for their “low quality” but a lot of us have rings from those stores. My diamond isn’t perfect but it was perfect for me. My ring is beautiful and I love it.

It’s hard not to get hung up on stats, but in reality, most people can’t tell. My stone is j in colour, and like a pp, people will compliment me on my colourless stone, always confuses me!

Worst case scenario, James Allan has a really good exchange policy.

Don’t worry about a thing, girl! The specs you gave sound good to me and I’m sure it will sparkle like crazy. My diamond isn’t as high of a grade as yours will be, but I couldn’t be happier with it 🙂

Also, don’t stress too much about seeing the email. I was with my fiancé when he bought my ring and he still managed to give me a surprise proposal. It’ll all work out in the end.

Mrszee:  honestly, I think even if you knew the exact MOMENT he was going to propose you’d still be blown away! The man you love is going to ask you to marry him, and that alone will get an amazing reaction.
