personally I like the debeers. I’m not a fan of knife edge though I can’t comment as to whether or not it’s comfortable.

I’m a 6 prong girl so I would go with T&Co.

But don’t limit yourself.  Trust me when I say you can find some AMAZING solitaires out there for so much cheaper and just as special.  Though if your heart is set on a brand name then it’s not for me to judge!

Enjoy!

I like DeBeers more… imo their stuff is consistently prettier.

I like the 6 prong ring. I have a 6 prong solitaire as well, I feel like my diamond is a little  more safe with the extra prongs. I tend to smash my ring off of things quite often because it sits so high and I’m a little clumsy. If the extra prongs would bring you a better sense of security I’d go for the Tiffany ring. Also the 6 prongs makes my stone look very round, I also tried on a 4 prong ring and it made it look more like a square stone.

@beebea35:  Hello! I had the same dilemma. I definitely picked De Beers over Tiffany’s b/c I like the lower settings and the diamond sparkle. At De Beers I picked out 3 setting, the plain classic, the pave, and the promise. My fiance got tme the plain classic with a 1.55 ct stone. I believe he went down in color and went up in clairty so I have a K color, VS2 clarity ring. Cut is excellent. I don’t know the cost of the ring i have but when we went in the store the rings around 1.5 carats were between $17-36k.

Tiffany, it is really comfortable, mine is 0.61ct in yellow gold, and I love it!

We have a De Beers engagement ring (not a solitare).  It was the only stock ring we really liked on my finger.

For what it’s worth, the service we received at the De Beers boutique was so much more personal than at Tiffany’s.  They know us both by name and when we pop in will ask about our wedding plans.  We’ll most likely get FI’s wedding band from De Beers as well, although Tiffany’s makes one that he likes (but is more expensive).

SI2 from De Beers is most likely eye clean, so if the size is what is important to you then I would go with that one.  They should be able to show you with a loupe or their microscope where the inclusions are.

From those two selections I like the De Beers one better..  but if you showed me a Tiffany solitare with a pave I would have chosen that one. 

I’m biased tho, I love Tiffany.
