For me: (sorry Tiffany lovers) “screw Tiffany” I’d rather get my money worth instead of little blue box.

@vmec: I agree!

 

@princs.sweetie: If you just have to have Tiffany, then get the smaller ring. However, I know of one Bride on here whose Fiance proposed with a Tiffany box he got off Ebay. She got to have the “little blue box” experience, yet was able to get more ring for a better price ๐Ÿ™‚

Agreed with the PP. While the little blue box is kinda cool to get, it doesn’t mean much to me. Unless you first met while working at Tiffany’s (or have some other emotional tie to it,) I’d go with whatever is most meaningful to your as a couple.

Ultimately, it’s up to you!

I’m not a name brand person.  They need to pay me money for advertising their stuff, not the other way around.  I’d go with the bigger, better diamond rather than the name.

I personally don’t care about designer labels AT ALL, so I say go for something else! No one is going to know a ring is from Tiffany’s unless you tell them anyway, and it’s not like people look at a solitaire and ask if it’s Tiffany. You know what I mean?

I like the idea of a completely unique ring SO MUCH BETTER. That way you have something really special, instead of the exact same ring that millions of other people have for the sole reason that it’s from a popular designer.

@princs.sweetie: Have you gone looking at rings?  When you see them in person, you tend to fall in love with one in particular…

I had always looked at the Tiffany rings online and had my heart kind of set on it.  But then everyone really pounded it into my head that I could get a bigger ring with the same quality at a cheaper price!  So I looked around at non-Tiffany rings and I saw some that were really lovely that I would have considered.

Then I went into Tiffany and me and my (now) Fiance both fell in love with the Lucida and that was when I decided that I would take a smaller Tiffany ring over a bigger non-Tiffany ring. 

I’m not sorry I did at all.  It’s 1.04 carats and gorgeous.  It’s really what you fall in love with! 

Good Luck!!

@Treasure43: My thoughts exactly!  I bet you can find a tiffany box online to get that blue box experience, but still get more bling for your buck by getting an off-brand ring!

One bazillion percent “other”. I could care less about Tiffany. If you can afford a ring from there then great but I think they are ridiculously over priced. To be honest, I’ve seen rings that are just as nice (or nicer) from other reputable jewelers for a fraction of the price.

I’m not into labels at all. try on both rings and go with the one you love better!

even though tiffany is quality stuff, you can get just as good quality for a lesser price elsewhere. you would definitely be paying for that label. if the bigger ring is good craftsmanship and you love it, go for it!!

I’d love to have a Tiffany ring, but I won’t pay just for the name. I would just be careful that the 1 3/4 diamond isn’t significantly less quality or something. You can still get great quality without a name, but that big of a stone for the price of a “small” Tiffany might not be that good of a deal. I’d rather have an excellent smaller stone than a huge one with visible flaws — no matter the name or lack thereof.

I would go with the ring I liked the most and the best quality (all 4 C’s not just ct). The cut, clarity, color and carat weight we were looking for was 10k more at Tiffany’s than the exact same ring (but 4 prong instead of 6) at a family owned jewler. Why pay more? But if you like the Tiffany’s ring the most then go for it.

Just go with the ring you like best ๐Ÿ™‚ I kept looking and looking and finally found a setting I liked (legacy) and it was from tiffany’s. If I had found a setting and stone cut/quality elsewhere I liked I would have gotten that one. Go with your favorite one!

Tiffany ring is not for me. I just want a pretty, meaningful and practical wedding band. My dad made our wedding bands, and I am so happy ๐Ÿ™‚ 

If you buy a Tiffany ring, a great % you pay is for the name not for the quality or quantity. But if the name is important to you, then that’s a different story ๐Ÿ™‚

Oooo this is tricky, ok so remember the unbelievable quality of a Tiffany’s ring. The sparkle factor is amazing and you know that although the size maybe smaller the quality is unbeatable. That is a lovely thing to know however if size is your thing or you have the slightest feeling that this could bother you definitely go for a no name ring purely because you don’t want to regret it. There is a post on here somewhere about a girl distressed because her fiancé spent so much money on her Tiff ring when he could have spent less and got bigger for a no name ring. After the ring is out of the box and onto your finger no one but you will know or even care (as much as you do) what your ring is. Besides the sparkle factor of course!
Being such a Tiff fan myself, my fiancé designed my ring and had it custom made even though it was still very expensive it’s of the same quality as Tiff but a much bigger carat size than a Tiff ring we could have afforded. Best of luck dear!
