@SoonToBee2013:  yeah I have mixed feelings. I want to have a big rock, and I want to be cheap lol. I’m not sure what we will decide, but hopefully I can find something soon! I’m tired of looking! But I sure wouldn’t mind something as beautiful as yours 😉

@Tphan: You said:  “I’ve noticed in several thread now that you’ve been, ahem, rather holier than thou when it comes to rings. Come off your high horse. “

I’m sorry if your perception is that I need to “come off my high horse”. I admit I do like quality in jewelry and know a little bit about it as well, however I am not “holier than thou” as you say.  While having an opinion as we all do, I have been polite, maintained civility in my responses and don’t resort to name calling.

The fact that you somehow think it’s your place to critique my comments speaks volumes.  People in glass houses…..

@Tphan:  I really don’t seen anything wrong with pointing out that a replica is not the “same exact thing” as the brand name item it is replicating. It isn’t. That’s why the price point differs, for one thing. I felt gemgirl6 pointed that out in a nice way.

I speak as someone with neither, so I have no horse in this race (high or otherwise).

@gemgirl6:  

“… you didn’t get the Tiffany service or the cache, the guarentee, or the resale value.”

I think you meant “guarantee”.

So, is Tiffany the ONLY place on the Earth that one could receive these services?

The answer: No.

Your comment was off-putting, which is why you’re coming off like you’re on a high horse (as someone else has said).

As far as service, my mother has been married to my father for 50 years, and went to a local jeweler in my hometown to have her ring made. Her ring is literally just as gorgeous and perfect as it was 50 years ago when my dad proposed. She went to take it to get cleaned often, and one time she needed it resized (pregnancy). They even know my parents by name. I think your ideas of customer service are completely ridiculous. What do you think jewelers do? “Here’s your ring, now SCRAM!” lolllolllol.

I think a lot of little girls, like you, just want the name, and the silly blue box. But that would be crazy, so you try to justify it with nonsense.

Just because Tiffany says your ring is valued at $2,000, you will NEVER get that amount if/when you have to sell it. They’ll only buy it for $900, because they still need to make a profit.

Gold is gold, diamonds are diamonds. Do you know anything about science?

That girl, was smart, for not having spent over $4K for a ring just for the name, and the silly blue box.

I dunno what she said, but I agree that name calling is crappy. But you? You need to learn the fine art of pleasant disagreement, and commenting.

We went with Tiffany because the ring was exactly what we were looking for, within budget, and the service was excellent. The other stores were like walking into a used car lot 🙁 we looked for replicas but there wasn’t anything close enough to the original, and when I looked into getting something custom made it was just a lot of hassle with only slight potential savings.

So yes, I got the “silly blue box.”

WOW, so Tiffany owners are “silly little girls” who “only want the name” and “justify it with nonsense.”

You said: “..Just because Tiffany says your ring is valued at $2,000, you will NEVER get that amount if/when you have to sell it. tey’ll only buy it for $900, because they still need to make a profit.”

I never mentioned the value of my ring. …I hope noone has to sell their ring but the point is, try selling a nonbranded diamond ring and see how the resale compares.

You said: “Gold is gold, diamonds are diamonds.That girl, was smart, for not having spent over $4K for a ring just for the name, and the silly blue box.”

You came to a “SHOW ME YOUR TIFFANY” thread of Tiffany owners for the sole purpose of posting that there is nothing special about Tiffany.  So in addition to Tiffany owners being “silly little girls” who “only want the name” and “justify it with nonsense.” buying Tiffany is just not “smart” and is just “silly”.   LOL, how very astute and flattering you are! Smile

You said: “You need to learn the fine art of pleasant disagreement, and commenting.”

Thanks for the further critique, I definitely plan to take advice  on “pleasantness” and “fine arts” from you. (see above)Wink

@AquaGrey8962:  +1

My partner received multiple phone calls, and had many appointments with our jeweller when having the ring custom made, he also changed the design several times which was probably a pain in the bum for them. They sourced multiple stones for us to choose from and they also stayed back on the Friday night (after closing time) so he could come and pick it up without having to leave work early. Their service was above and beyond.

@Vikstar:  I understand all that – very familiar in fact! …but you have a custom ring, like mine (except mine is not a replica of anything). So then it belongs in a “Custom rings” or “Tiffany replica rings” thread, but this is a “Tiffany’s rings” thread, clearly labelled as such.

@joya_aspera:  Please don’t tell me where my opinions do and don’t belong. I was merely adding weight to AquaGrey’s argument that Tiffany’s is not the only place that offers exceptional customer service.

I’m not a big Tiffany fan in general (especially the items which display the brand name) but I absolutely LOVE their classic solitaire.

The rings posted on this thread are beautiful!

@Vikstar:  I was talking about your ring. I just can’t see how it is a matter of opinion that a replica ring is not the “exact same thing” as a ring from Tiffany’s…they are different, it’s a matter of fact. Anyway, I’ve made my point.

@joya_aspera:  I honestly have no idea what you are talking about now. My ring is not a replica of a Tiffany’s design. I was discussing the level of customer service that some jewellers provide, which gemgirl6 believes is exclusive to Tiffany’s.

Love all your rings! And the flower one is a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

So some people think Tiffany rings are silly because they cost too much and so they go with other brands or no-brand diamond rings. But then some people will think it is silly to spend a lot of money on a diamond ring, so they go with moissanite. And then some people still think it’s silly to spend 1k+ for moissanite so they go with cz. But then some people think it’s silly to buy cz because… etc etc etc.

Can’t we just stop caring so much about what others do?? Nobody is silly. Only HAPPY people here! 🙂
