@pomellina:  It looks a lot like my ring. Mine isn’t a Tiffany ring (I think we’re talking about designer, not style?), but it’s still very similar. 

 

Mine is a 2mm comfort fit half-round band and a 0.5-carat stone. I think the one you’re looking at looks thinner than my band, even — it’s looks so tiny and delicate!

 

 

 

 

They’re really close photos, so they look a lot thicker than in real life. Here’s one farther away.

 

 

As for paperwork, I couldn’t even begin to tell you. I know noooothing about these things. I just wanted to give you a photo to compare it to, to see if it helps.

I think it’s a knife edge band. It gives that super delicate look, while still having a strong, substantial band.  As for documentation, they should have a certificate of authenticity or something, and I think Tiffany rings probably are stamped “Tiffany” on the inside. Lots of designers do knife edges, so unless you just -want- Tiffany, you’re not limited to that.

@pomellina:  What size is the stone? Knowing how wide the stone is will help better judge the thickness of the band.

@pomellina:  yeah, definitely look into this style band from other sources if the “tiffany’s” part isn’t too important to you. you can find really great replicas/similar styles for much better prices elsewhere! (although i’m sure it’s a pretty good price on ebay, but still probably higher than a similar ring from somewhere else)

It’s a 2mm knife edge band in platinum.  The knife edge makes it look much thinner, but it’s a very solid and secure ring.   You should look for a few things:  the inside of the ring will say Tiffany & Co PT 950, and on the other side will be stamped with the diamond number (mine is 8 digits long) and carat weight.  The seller usually has the paperwork that came with it, you can see those displayed on most Tiffany diamond ring listings (unless they are an estate seller, they may not have the paperwork).  You can always get the diamond number and verify it with Tiffany but I wouldn’t tell them it’s from ebay because they don’t like to have people resell their items.  If you buy it, you can take it to the store.

Yep my ring is stamped exactly like the pp states.  The band is also thinner in the back than around the diamond.  I’d be a little weary of buying a Tiffany ring off ebay (though I’ve bought a tiffany rattle off of there before and it was perfectly fine).

I don’t think that one is authentic Tiffany. I could def be wrong but it looks thinner than the Tiffany one. I’ve tried on the Tiffany solitaire many times and what I don’t like is that it seems too thick on my super short fingers. I think the actual Tiffany ring is closer to 2.5-3 mm and I prefer something 2 mm or less. This person could just have really long fingers though, skewing my view of it. There’s an authentic Tiffany solitaire on diamond bistro right now though.

Sorry for the large picture, but if this helps, here’s my Tiffany knife edge next to my wedding band which I know is 2mm, so I think the knife edge band looks like it’s also about 2mm?

@morganjenkstamwood:  ah maybe that’s why! I have always tried on around 1 carat up I think. Like I said my fingers are really short so it’s always felt too bulky for me.

@pomellina:  2mm

see lots of smaller Tiffany & Co engagement rings on Ebay. Some seem to be authentic with paperwork, correct markings etc. Good luck!
