redearthlady :  haha not yet! We left my ring as a way to hold it while we think it over. I’m pregnant and my ring doesn’t really fit anymore so we figured since I’m not wearing it anyway, we’ll just let them hold it until after the holidays. It’s quite a price jump. Normally they make you double the cost of your original ring to upgrade, but they are making an exception for this one since there are limited amounts. It’s not double but still pretty hefty. 

 

And as for those saying you don’t like the T—I dont either! But when i tried it on and saw it in person, I didnt even notice it. My husband didn’t either and he HATES logos on anything

I’m kind of “meh” about it; both the setting (basket is a bit thick) and the stone. But I’m biased because I love step-cuts. I do like that it’s low profile and simple. 

Also, the author of that article comes across as a pompous, snobby a$$. Quite the opposite of the typical Tiffany elegance.

The setting reminds me of a transformer for some reason LOL. Like their helmet. The cut is interesting, but I find tiffany cuts aren’t actually all theyre stacked up to be.

feeshpup :  Its something to think about, but I love it. I think it may be because I love step cuts and cushions anyways. I also loved your original set. Take your time and mull it over. Let us know what you decide!

I tried on the True with the matching Wedding band over the weekend (sorry about the blurry pic)! The band of the ring was a lot more delicate than I thought it would be—not exactly my preference, but I’m sure some would love how thin it is. I was not a fan of the obvious “T” setting from the marketing photos, but to echo another poster above, the actual T on the setting looks quite subtle. Not as in-your-face like in the ads, so I appreciated that. 

I really admired the mixed cut of the diamond! I’ve been getting more into step cuts, so the mix of the step cuts with the brilliant faceting looked great to me. However, it’s more noticeable in the bigger diamonds, so I don’t know if the smaller stones would display the faceting as well. It’s a fun, modern addition to Tiffany’s engagement ring collection!

ale1185 :  I love the engagement ring but not the band so much on a female. It’s very masculine to me. I think that thin shared prong,channel ser,or even a thin lucida would look better with the engagement ring. The True band overwhelms the engagement ring and would look better for a standalone band or for those who want to match bands with their spouse. Thanks for sharing!

redearthlady :  

I agree about the wedding band. A classic, thin Tiffany wedding band would definitely showcase the diamond better—the one I tried on was too big and busy for my taste. It would also be hard to wear with another ring if one has shorter fingers. My fingers are on the longer side, and wearing the True band felt quite cumbersome!

I love that there is a thread on this ring yay!!!  I tried this ring on at Tiffany’s as I thought for SURE that it was the one!  I concur that the T is very subtle…almost unnoticeable to me.  I love the concept of this ring and a subtle nod to the branding but I was disappointed in how delicate the setting was overall.  It didn’t wow me and the 1 ct I tried on appeared very small and not nearly as fiery and brilliant as the traditional 1 ct Tiffany setting I compared it to.  Of course, rounds will typically outshine other cuts but Ughh I was disappointed.  

To the poster who just got this ring though…congrats!!! Whatever size you got shows beautifully!! I think the larger carat sizes showcases the beauty of the diamond cut so much better.  

For me, I’m sticking with the traditional Tiffany’s setting but will keep stalking this page to watch the Tiffany true ring porn 😆

How does this cut compare visually to a brilliant cut? Does it sparkle as much even in day light?

act1980 :  I think I just responded to this in you’re original thread, but I’ll answer here too in case others reference this thread and want to know as well. The True is very sparkly! Definitely has more brilliance than regular step cuts, possibly due to how the sides look to be cut (similar to a brilliant around the outside, but a step cut more in the center). I tried it on and got to take it near a window away from the overhead lighting. Light performance was beautiful, but it can’t beat the sparkle of a round brilliant simply due to the pattern of the facets on the True. I would also recommend that if you are considering this ring, it would look best in a larger carat size (1.25 carats+) to truly see the cut.
