That’s my ring, though I think the picture has a bigger diamond than mine! I got the Tiffany Novo, which I’d never heard of or even seen before my now-husband proposed! I had never even seen a cushion-cut diamond before, and it was love at first sight! I still find myself staring at it sometimes (now with a matching partial eternity Novo band to match) and it’s been almost a year and a half since I got it. =)

Culleyholt is right, bluenile.com is a good place to look for saving some money and building your dream ring!

I don’t have the Tiffany novo, but I do have the classic princess cut setting from Tiffany’s and I love it lots!

My Fiance proposed with a cushion cut diamond set in a pave band (just like the novo) but he ordered in online and was able to get a much higher quality and bigger diamond for his money.

You don’t need to go to tiffany for the tiffany novo look.

My ring is from blue nile and it looks exactly like that.  I’ve never seen a ring sparkle as much as mine does and I’m so in love with it.  It appraised for almost double what he paid for it so I’m pretty happy about that too!

Take the photo to a private jeweler. You will be surprised what they can do, and it will probably save you at least half, if not more. My ring came from a private jeweler who works out of his home. I got a bigger ring, better quality, for less money. We also traded in some gold.

Tiffany charges an arm and a leg because…well, because they are Tiffany. They’re reputation is stellar, and they do have beautiful jewelry. BUT…you can do a lot better with a jeweler that has little to no overhead.

You can also gather scrap gold up, if you have any. The price is amazingly high right now and if you can trade your gold in, do it!

I agree with the others, don’t waste your money on “Tiffany”. You can get just as good and better for much less cost going to a jeweler.

PriceScope forums are your friend when you’re diamond-searching!

I would say 90% of the cost is for the name Tiffany. There are designer inspired rings out there that look very close to the original. You would be surprised. Plus, 99% of the people who look at your ring will not know if it’s a Tiffany or not unless you tell them.

Stop hating on Tiffany.  Tiffany is beautiful and timeless.  I have a Tiffany Novo and it was about maybe 500-1k more than blue nile or any other generic for a 1.14carat with ideal cut, polish, no fluorescence, symmetry, G, VVS2.  I checked — platinum setting, diamonds, everything.  Go in and be willing to walk away.  If you are serious, they will give you options that are worth it.

Fiance sent a picture of the Tiffany ring I liked to a private jeweler and he designed it for him.

“Don’t waste your money on a ‘Tiffany’.  You can get just as good and better for much less cost going to a jeweler”

 

Its a matter of your own personal opinion that Tiffany is not worth the money, and this comment is rude to those that spent their hard earned money on a Tiffany.

 

Your comment suggests to me that you find engagement rings to be merely a ‘commodity’ and you judge its worth solely based on its ‘monetary’ value.

 

Just for your information, buying an engagement ring is more than just the ‘money’.  An engagement ring to many people is a symbol of commitment, love and romance, so we all do our best to get an engagement ring that portrays that symbolism.  Ofcourse, that symbolism differs from individual to individual.

 

In my case, a Tiffany ring is an embodiment of luxury, class, romance, timelessness, and quality and not just a ‘commodity’ that you obtain at a ‘bargain price’.   There is a strong history behind a Tiffany and lots of emotions that swirl around the brand.  Thus, to me a Tiffany is worth every penny and I am sure it is the same to others as well.

 

Your comment that a Tiffany is not worth the money is uncalled for.

 

And ‘NO’ you cannot get another tiffany elsewhere for cheaper, unless you buy it used on ebay which is a hit & miss.  A tiffany is a tiffany.  Just as a Louis Vuitton is a Louis Vuitton.  Many people purchase the LV bag despite its huge price tag.  For me, I purchased my Girlfriend a Trevi PM bag because it was a beautiful timeless and classic piece that will always be in fashion, despite its huge price tag.  Same thing could be said for Chanel as well.

 

Going the designer route or going the non-designer route to get an engagement ring is a matter of personal choice.

@lilianparks:

When I think of Tiffany one movie that comes to mind is ‘Sleepless in Seattle’.  Its not really a movie focused on a Tiffany but there was one scene where the fiance of Annie gives her the Seven Stone Tiffany flower design engagement ring that belonged to his mother which he resized.  It was a very romantic scene.

 

If your dream is a Tiffany, then you should save your money up to get it in the future.

 

Afterall, we only live for only a short while and an engagement ring is a lifelong investment
