Have you tried it on in person? 

I have a Tacori and am still never sick of looking at it after almost 4 years, but yeah, sometimes I think we could have found something else I loved for less money (or the same money, but got a larger centre stone… haha)

I see.  When you do try it on make sure you wear it for a bit, and really try to rub your other fingers beside it.  I tried on a few like this, and felt like I could really feel all the ridges.  I ended up with this one, which is a bit smoother, but even still, I find that it gunks up really easily in some of the side ridges.  But when it’s nice and clean…. LOVE.

I love Tacori (my wedding band is Tacori) but I couldn’t justify Fiance spending that much on the setting for the engagement ring, so I chose a Verragio! Have you looked into Verragio?

I have a Tacori ring.  I felt the same way about it at first (it being on the pricier side) however I am so happy my Fiance was adament about getting the Tacori and not a copy cat.  Tacori rings are such high quality (my diamonds on the band always sparkle!) and really do have that extra detail that you can’t find in other rings.  This is a ring that you will have for life, so make sure you don’t settle just because of price, especially if he is willing to spend the money!

I got a Tacori from my Fiance as well and I cannot stop staring at it, all the little details just made it so worth it!!!  It is the most beautiful thing!!

My Tacori was much more than what I expected him to spend. I chose the brand and he chose the ring to surprise me with and boy was I surprised!! When I think about the cost, there are a lot of things that we could have bought with that but when I think about wearing this ring for the rest of my life and possibly passing it down to our kids (if we have any), it’s definitely worth it! A big part of the cost was the clarity of the center stone and I think that’s very important. My ring is always very sparkly.

 

I also agree with @sapphiresun since mine was a surprise, I had no idea how bulky it would feel and the edges are very sharp – I have big knuckes and had to have beads put in. But I like being able to feel that it’s there and haven’t had any problems with it.

Aaaah, the beautiful and elegant Tacori designs…

My take on them is that they have earned a reputable name for a reason: they make really unique and elaborate designs with tons of details and quality. Now once a company has made its name reputable, they can just charge you way more for their products. Think of the carat size you pay for at Tiffany’s compared to the same stone in a no-name jewelery chain store! 

So up to you if this is absolutely what you want, and if you guys have the funds to pay for it comfortably, then it’s great! Otherwise, look around some more just to see if anything inspires you with a smaller price tag πŸ˜‰ 

I personally didn’t choose the first ring I fell in love with. Then I found my awesome ring for a very reasonable price, which was important to me! …but then I went and spent double the price on a custom-made platinum wedding band so go figure! I got comfortable with spending lots on that one finger πŸ˜‰ 

Good luck and have fun with your search πŸ™‚

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You’re mostly paying for the name. I had a ring created ‘custom’ to have it in rose gold and save money. The side stones sparkle much more than the stock setting and than Tacori settings we saw. Not only the sparkle but the setting just feels stronger. Its hard to explain. Hold a stock ring and a custom ring in your hands and it’ll make more sense. See if a local jeweler with good reviews can redo it.

I have a tacori and love it, but the only reason I have a tacori is because we have an heirloom diamond and therefore i got to spend our entire ring budget on the setting.

Sometimes, as much as I love my ring, I feel like maybe I was silly. I could have gotten the same thing for about half the price but it was easiest for us to just get the Tacori. I also told my fiance if he wants to save around 1200 (thats about the markup) I could just get a plain no-name solitaire (which wouldnt have had the detail on the sides, but I couldve been happy with out it) and be fine. He said no lets get the Tacori since we can. 

Anyways, its something to consider. You are paying for the name, which is silly if you could use that ring budget for a nicer stone/metal.

I second the poster who said to look at verragio rings. I loved tacori’s but ended up very surprised at How much I liked verragio and ritani rings in person!

@Lilyah:  I had my heart set on a Tacori, and that’s what my fiance bought.  I have never once regretted choosing to go with the more expensive brand, and (unless he’s really good at hiding it!) neither has he.

The thing about choosing a Tacori is that you’re not just paying for the name, but also the service that goes along with it.  For example, the authorized jeweler he purchased the ring from told us that I can (and should!) send my ring back to Tacori once a year to have it checked.  They’ll fix any imperfections (however small), ensure the ring looks just as it should, etc.  It seems as though they really stand behind their products, and that was really important to both my fiance and I.  (I should probably note that we’ve only been engaged since November, so I haven’t had any issues with my ring thus far.)

It depends on what you want and your budget, though.  I would definitely recommend trying on the ring prior to making a decision.  Although I knew some elements I wanted in my engagement ring, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted until I started trying on rings.  It can make a huge difference when you actually see the ring on your own hand!

Here are a couple of pictures of my ring:
