I thought you were getting a bigger diamond instead of an expensive setting?

So I’m gonna get some flack for saying this but OP, I feel like it has to be said…

——————————————–

In between the 15+ ring threads you’ve started here and the Pricescope posts, you are kinda coming across as a bit obsessed. First of all, the ring you originally wanted is literally a replica of your SIL’s ring. Then, you want a very expensive designer setting which you seem to expect your SO to spend his entire tax return on but that’s okay because you have an heirloom diamond. Then it turns out the heirloom diamond you have isn’t good enough. So then you’ve changed your mind to a larger diamond in a simpler setting. But wait! The plot thickens…it seems you are now looking for a big diamond AND an elaborate setting.

Look, I get that you’re a little sparkle struck. I get that way looking at rings too (my posting history here evidences that) but it seems that your tastes are a little out of budget. Is it really necessary that you have both a fancy setting and a large stone? Does your ring really have to look like your SIL’s? And I know you keep talking about having larger fingers and living in NYC but do either of those things really warrant a 20k+ ring when your max budget is 12k?

It’s a ring! A pretty, sparkly lovely symbol but it. is. a. ring. And no, unlike some sterling advice in a recent thread, it isn’t worth financing or taking out a loan for. Please have a serious discussion with your SO and ensure that you two are on the same page.

So many +1s to this!

OP, I think you need to listen to the pp. Find a ring you love, and then enjoy this exciting time withthe man you love. I think you are getting too caught up in status symbol thing, and forgetting the real meaning behind it. The ring isn’t for everybody else, it’s for you.

Arshim:  + a million  Bang on it’s about time it’s  said. There is no hidden sites with cheap 2 carat Tacori rings no matter how many times you ask.

This.  You aren’t going to find a 2 ct diamond that hits all your specs for your budget, and you’re not going to find a loophole to get a Tacori setting for cheap.  You can do your due diligence and find good deals, but deals within the hundreds, not multiple thousands.

I’m not up to speed with the other threads, but I’ve seen some second-hand Tacori settings on ebay that were very reasonably priced. Maybe that’s an option?

Bridey77:  Exactly. OP, I think you’re WAY too caught up with the label and size factors here.  Think deep and hard… do you want the Tacori ring just so you can say I have a ‘big diamond in xxx Tacori setting’? Or is this a competition thing with your SIL?

chicagold:  Yesss! I totally forgot to mention this. Tacori rings are standard priced in all their distributors. The only time I have seen them cheaper is pre-owned. And when it comes to diamonds, the old adage stands true – you get what you pay for. Chances are you’re not going to get a 1.75 XXX VVS1 G for 8K. Maybe more like 18K. So no, posting all these threads isn’t going to change anything. You either have to accept your budget and work within it, making a compromise on either stone size, stone type or setting. Or you can postpone your engagement. If it were my decision, I’d get an AG in my dream setting and then switch it out later.

Yes good quality diamonds in that size are not 8k and yes Tacoris  like all other designer brands are price regulated. I have a Verragio same deal maybe a couple hundred to play with but not thousands. I don’t  know the exact  cost of my ring but probably  around 20k. If I could have purchased mine for 8k or even 12k I would have bought 2! 

First time I got engaged  I was given a budget and Verragio  was not in line with the price point I was at. So i bought the best quality diamond I could afford (which was a .46 I believe ) and set it in a nice ( but not designer ) setting and called it a day. You need to accept that you can’t get everything without the budget to support it . You might not make it to the engagement  if you are this obssesive over a ring.

Wait.. What? OP just asked about photos of the petite crescent collection. In My Humble Opinion Seems like a big leap to talk about her intentions or her marriage. 

OP: If you google the style name I found quite a few hand pics after some digging.

BlushingHoneybee:  The OP has a bit of a history posting about her ring situation. That’s why there’s not much patience here.
