I am absolutely in love with this ring. http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?sku=23904314
I have tried it on 2 sepearate times and both times I was thinkg “this is the one!”. I am wondering if anyone else owns this ring, or what are their thoughts for having this as an engagement ring. (I prefer to have a sapphire or ruby as the center stone).
Is this a ring that will be timeless? Or is it a trend ring? It’s $10,800 here in Canada.
I really want a purple sapphire and this is the only one I could find in a B&M store. The natural sapphire company has a nice collection of sapphires in different colours, but I would be a bit nervous to buy something like this online. It would be about half the price if I bought it from The Natural Sapphire Company.

I think it’s a lovely ring but way overpriced, I think it would be worth trying to order it from another place, and returning it if you don’t like it

I think it is a very stunning ring. I actually love it. But NOT for that price. That is a bit ridiculous. Could you maybe take a picture of that into a privately owned jeweler and have them custom make it? That way you could pick out your stone? If not, The natural Sapphire Company has a really awesome reputation. For half the price, I’d definitly try it at least!

Since it would be a custom made ring, if I ordered it from The Natural Sapphire Company, it would be non returnable.
I am not dead set on having the Tiffany brand, but I really love the setting and the fact that it is a purple sapphire.
I am not sure where else I can find a similar ring for a better price.

I hope it’s not trendy because it looks almost exactly like my ring, except that mine is a bright blue ceylon sapphire. I love mine and get lots of compliments on it. Judging from the specs and knowing what mine cost, I would agree it is overpriced. We got mine online and had a great experience, so I think as long as you go through a reputable store, you can always return it if it doesn’t meet your expectations.

Love the ring! But…I have to agree with the others, its overpriced because its branded “Tiffany’s”.

I agree that the ring is pretty but that it is overpriced. I would keep searching for the perfect ring for you! I knew from the get-go that I wanted a sapphire ring and spent a lot of time on the Natural Sapphire Co website (too much time, haha) but ultimately ordered my ring from a local jeweler because I could see/choose the stone and setting in person. I went with a round purple-blue stone set in a Shodlt semi-bezel. <3 it! The jeweler was able to get in a good variety of sapphires from a local gem dealer and I felt good about supporting local businesses. Good luck with your search!

It’s beautiful and definitely overpriced. I don’t feel like sapphires are trendy. They have been used for engagement rings for a long time. 🙂

I tried on the pink version last time SO and I were in Tiffany’s looking at different ring styles. It’s really a stunning ring, I didnt know it also came in purple. I’ll agree with other posters that the price tag is quite large, so you’ll have to decide if the Tiffany’s name and service is worth it to you.

I’ll have to do my research to find a local jewler here in Toronto that has purple sapphires. I have gone to Birks and Cartier, but all I see are blue sapphires.
I don’t need a Tiffany’s ring — it’s just the only place I found that has the exact ring I want, already made!
My boyfriend prefers to buy the ring at a B&M store. I’ll have to do more research.

Could you order a stone from the Natural Sapphire, then have it set by a local jeweler?
That way if the stone arrives & you dont like it, you could still return it. And your Boyfriend or Best Friend gets to deal with a local B &M store.
Keep us posted, sounds lime you’ll end up with something beautiful.

@ladyofshalott: You should look into custom rings. You could probably have a similiar ring made some where for a lot less.

I do not consider rings like this to be ‘timeless’.
It’s a pretty ring but I agree with others that it’s WAY over-priced.

@ladyofshalott: I say go to your local jewerly stores and take plenty of pictures with the specs. Have them quote you for custom making the exact same ring design. You will be involved in every step of the process and will be able to select your stone and make any needed changes along the way. It will be affordable and just plan practical instead of gong with the Tiffany name.
By The Way, no offense to anyone who has a Tiffany ring. I have a Tiffany charm bracelet that I love and I get all the charms from Tiffany’s but I know the price is higher bc of the name.
