@CaliforniaLove: I would be too! It’s one thing to come to a message board and post specs and what not. These things are searchable by other brides who may have questions, but I hate when one of my friends get engaged on Facebook and they post photos of their ring with all the specs under it. NO ONE in real life cares about the cut, color, carat, or clarity. Other brides only care about that stuff…on a message board. Even then, I only like to see it on review posts and not proposal post.

@CaliforniaLove: Holy crapoli…If I had done something like that, I would hope someone would slap some sense into me. On the opposite, I had a hard time telling people (when they asked) that my ring came from Tiffanys. I felt like I was bragging by just answering their questions. Now that I think about it, I dont’ think I even posted pics of my ring on facebook. Your friend needs a lesson in class (for the bragging rights, not the posting ring pics on FB).

if you’re really attached to one of Tiffany’s unique designs and you’re willing to spend the money, then I’d say it’s worth it. but they have a few rings that I think look just like any other ring. for example: their channel set band. I can’t tell the difference at all! it looks like many other channel set bands to me.
but some of their designs are truly unique, if you’re a stickler for details. I fell in love with Tiffany’s Swing Ring. I searched for months to find a replica that looked just like it, but they were all too chunky, or the stones way too small, etc. No diamond or moissanite ring matched up to the Tiffany original, not exactly. somehow, the swing ring was absolutely perfect next to my e-ring and nothing else was quite the same.
the thing is, I can afford it if I wanted it. I have enough cash in the bank right now to buy it today. but I think the’re asking an outrageous price for a ring that’s –let’s face it– pretty small. there is no way I would spend my money on that, no matter how much I love it! I just can’t.
but that’s just me. if you think it’s worth the price and you can afford it, then go for it!

Everyone likes to brag once in a while, but it’s so much cooler when people discover things about you that are bragable on their own lol

@nontraditionalmiami: agreed! it’s like how I happen to know my friend’s ring is worth $20,000. she didn’t tell me that, she would never advertise that fact to anyone (my Fiance found out from her husband, so shame on him for bragging). but now that I know, I’m always starting at it and thinking “wow! fancy ring!”

Sorry, posting from an iPhone…don’t know why it was all bold and underlined, ugh.

@Miss Tattoo: Exactly.. The only friends who asked specs about my ring were (1) very close friends and (2) in the process of looking for rings. Bleh.. I just checked to see if she still had the post up and YUP! It’s there! Hahahahha!
@JsDragonfly: When someone asks where your ring is from that’s another story. 😉 I too did not post pictures of my e-ring on fb because I feel like if I’m close enough to the person then they’ll see it in person. I think the ring on the box picture PLUS the title of the post is what made me scrunch my face. hehe.

@CaliforniaLove: I haven’t posted my ring on FB either. But then again I almost never post anything on facebook.
I will admit I go “stalking” for ring pictures on facebook when people get engaged, but I’d never post a picture of my ring (unless I was posting all the pro photos from the wedding or something like that).

@CaliforniaLove: Dude, that is crazy. I am definitely anti-posting-the-ring on FB. Buuut, I have to admit that I like looking at people’s rings when they do post them, so what does that say about me? 😉

@CaliforniaLove: I only had one person ask the stats on my ring….a VERY materialistic friend of mine who, when Darling Husband and I were looking for rings, we went out to dinner with and she spent an hour talking about all the stats of her ring, what she paid, how much of an investment it was, etc until Darling Husband and I wanted to gag! When she asked I told her I didn’t know. NO ONE and I mean NO ONE has asked how much we paid, the brand, etc. However, we did have some people say they loved the ring and asked us where we got it.

I haven’t read the other’s comments, but I would go for the non-Tiffany ring. I have been in LOVE with Tiffany’s Legacy halo FOR. EV. ER. But when we went to the store for me to try it on and get a quote, it was $48,000! FOR A RING! No. Way. Sooo my Fiance worked with goldoldgold.com and created a gorgeous gorgeous replica for a HUGE fraction of the price, AND I got a bigger diamond.

I would rather get the bigger ring. I just don’t see what the big deal with Tiffany’s is. I’m all about getting my money worth or in this case my SO money.

I agree with some of the previous posters; pick the ring you like the best. Would you pick the same ring if it was from somewhere else? Don’t forget you will be looking at the ring for the rest of your life, not the box it came in.
