@Alyce: Thankfully, no one has called be a spoiled brat, well other than my sisters (but they were kidding lol). I’m glad you love your ring! I love mine so much, but like you…I would have loved my ring no matter where it came from. It just happened to be from Tiffany’s. 🙂

I never picked my ring for the brand. We just sort of ended up in there and my ring is the one we liked the most.
Honestly, the customer service can’t be topped and they’ve been wonderful to us. They even gifted us with a crystal champagne bucket a couple weeks after the purchase! We could’ve gotten a bigger diamond for the price elsewhere, but I’m happy with what I have.

anyone can buy Tiffany.. so what you will have the same exact ring as 50,000 other people? Is that what you want? I think more unique styles are perfect. Personal decision though.

@trojanwr21: I totally agree with that, my boyfriend has bought a Tiffany Setting for me (the real thing, not fake Tiffany replicas from random online stores). Tiffany’s is high quality, worth every penny, they do free cleanings, etc. And the little blue box has always been a dream of mine, and I can’t wait til I finally get it 🙂 Honestly buying the little blue box off ebay is kind of silly to me, if you don’t want to pay for Tiffany’s you shouldn’t get the blue box. Just use the normal box that the ring came in!

I did not choose the ring for the brand name, but because it is the one I have always dreamed of, as far back as I can remember. So please stop hating on a great quality jewellers

but I made sure to pick a size that was affordable, if i was intent on a huge over the top ring I would have gone somewhere else 🙂

i pretty much agree with everything that has been said….
While I LOVE the idea of having a Tiffany ring (or anything really) it’s just not that important to me. I don’t think ONE person has asked who designed my ring… haha!

I love Tiffany and I admit I drool over their website on a pretty regular basis. But I never would’ve had the blue box experience- Fiance had safety pinned the ring into the pocket of his pants because he was waiting for the right moment, and he had no place to hide the blue box for the three months he waited.
Fiance originally wanted to get me a Tacori ring. He did a lot of research and found the setting he liked and then went to Robbins Diamonds in Philadelphia to get it for me, and he nearly keeled over when they told him the price. He got the pricing for smaller diamonds and white gold, then when he told his mom, she told him to go to a family friend independent jeweler. He gave her his price range and she hooked him up with an almost exact replica setting, in platinum, with significantly larger diamonds (he was already looking at high quality, that’s where he wasn’t willing to skimp) for less money.
So my ring is a no-name ring, but it sparkles like crazy (seriously, it distracts people. I’ve had strangers stop me mid-conversation to comment on how sparkly my ring is) and I love the platinum and how it wears. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I was always dazzled by the glitter of Tiffany as a young girl. I look at their website regularly but there are so few things i’d actually wear i’m always quite dissapointed.
They have a silver and turquoise enamel ring that I like, I wanted it as a wedding band but it only comes in Silver. I was super excited for the Rubido pink metal but then I saw it was all stamped on the outside and in the style of their one collection that I wouldn’t wear without being paid an advertising fee. A lot of their stuff reminds me of Nike with labels and logos unecessarily emblazoned on it…If others like it thats awesome for them but it just seems really uncouth to me, makes me feel uncomfortable.
The few things I like from Tiffany I like a lot, but if I had a big pile of cash and wanted really high end jewelry I’d be toddling off to the Jewelry Quarter.

My engagement ring is the exact same mold as the “classic” Tiffany ring- 6 prong low set knife edged band in platinum. My Fiance got it from James Allen. Another downside on real Tiffany = they don’t use GIA certified diamonds! They have their own certification lab. They are essentially saying “This diamond is
quality because I made up the scale and I said it is.”
Here’s my ring. It came in a beautiful wooden box.

I would never expect my man to pay extra for something just so I can have it given to me in a little blue box.
The ring is forever the box is only for a few minutes.

@nontraditionalmiami: what was the size of hers?
Post # 164
I’ve always been in love with the “little blue box”. But I never wanted my ering from them. I got the tiffany gift for V-day and that was good enough for me. Personally I’d rather get what I really want rather than go with a certain name brand. Whether that’s a unique style, a bigger stone, or whatever.

See, I’ve got the best of both worlds. I’m picking an e-ring in a tiffany style setting (will be either a 2ct white sapphire or a moissanite) and getting a tiffany wedding band.
I’ll have my little blue box moment and my tiffany ring.

i went with smaller Tiffany ring, ever since I can remember it has been the ring I have wanted, and I got it 🙂 probably won’t get our wedding bands there though, as lovely as they are
