Mine isn’t a Tiffany, but it’s 0.55 carats.  For size reference the ring is size 3.75.  Also I for sure reccomend trying on as many styles as you can.  I was in love with the bezet collection, but the band was too thick/my finger was too skinny and it looked funny.  Also, be aware that you may have to be patient and have rings transfered in order to find the diamond size you are looking for.  In our ring shopping adventures we had our SF Tiffany store transfer rings from all over since they only had larger (I think 0.8 was the smallest they had at the time) carat sizes in stock.  They were very nice about it and let us search thier whole stock, international too.  However, their stock of smaller diamonds was very surprising and frustrating since I was very set on my 5’s (5 is my favorite number).

@peonies327:  LOVE that ring. I always liked the Novo, just didn’t compliment my hand. Very, very pretty πŸ™‚

@younglove123:  .49 on a short 5.5 finger (as a PP said, size preference is related to size of the hand/finger. I personally don’t like larger stones because my hands are rather small in person and didn’t want my ring to eat my hand!) I love how low the stone sits in the setting, it’s the reason Fiance picked out the ring (he didn’t even know Tiffanys was a famous brand, he looked at many stores and just liked the classic Tiffanys ring the best so he bought it lol). Also what PP have said, the price on the website is for their lowest quality stone (which since it’s Tiffany is still good though since they don’t sell anything below a certain standard) and can very well go up a thousand or two or more depending on the quality stone you want or what’s available when you go in to look. All I know is my “little” ring seems to sparkle in person a helluvalot more than any other ones (of any size or company or cut) I’ve seen…

[Ps the wedding band, which I still have to wait 4 more months to wear, is also Tiffany, 2mm channel setting full eternity, j.i.c. somebody asks, I’m too lazy to respond later, haha]

@BookishBelle:  Beautiful ring! However, this is why I take issue with some perspectives on having a Tiffanys ring. A diamond of the same cut/color/clarity will be just as beautiful as another, regardless of where it comes from. I own both a .25 carat Tiffany’s diamond ring (promise ring) and an engagement ring from somewhere else. They are both equally as beautiful. If you want to pay the extra for the Tiffany name, go for it! To think your ring is superior to others to the same grade, however, is a bit unfair.

@LannaMi:  i certainly don’t think my ring is superior to others because it’s from Tiffany’s, i know it is as good a quality stone as others out there, it’s funny i find issues with non-Tiffany owners for similar reasons! It irks me when non-Tiffany owners try to discourage others from buying Tiffany’s because ‘you can get so much more for your money if you get a non-Tiffany! You can get the same style/replica of the Tiffany’s styles for a much cheaper price/I got a _____ ring, not Tiffany’s and I am so glad. You should do the same!’ gah I want to scream sometimes

@Jacqui90:  Very fair, and I understand where you are coming from. I think a lot of people do try to discourage because they don’t agree with spending that much on a ring. I honestly am not trying to come across that way! I have spent a stupid amount of money there. Trust me, I’m very sad my ugly fingers didn’t work with a Tiffanys ring!! πŸ™ Lol. Luckily I found a beautiful one I am very happy with. Mind you the price difference wasn’t much, other stores just have more of a selection/personalization option. It wasn’t the price I’m trying to warn against, it’s the possibility of it not looking the way you envisioned. I actually love looking at all of the rings here πŸ™‚ They look much better on these girls than they did on me.

I was a die hard Tiffany’s fan growing up….didn’t end up with a Tiffany’s ering for whatever reason, but I do have to say this. It is my understanding that Tiffany’s gets their diamonds cut to THEIR standards. So yes, the cut might = excellent on the GIA scale, but from what I understand they have higher standards that go beyond GIA and all the others. I might have just bought into their (very affective) marketing campaign though…..

@LannaMi:  yeah it definitely depends on what suits your finger and whether you like it on πŸ™‚ i have always known I wanted the Tiffany Setting, but I wanted to try it on to see if I liked it on as much, and also so Fiance could see what it looked like on me so he could be sure he was ok buying it πŸ™‚

@Jacqui90:  Lucky girl for having a man that didn’t shy away from Tiffany’s! Haha. It took my fiancé 3 years to get used to the idea I wanted a Tiffany ring πŸ˜› On a related note though, if anyone has a Tiffany Legacy I would love to see it on a hand.

I love the Tiffany solitaire! As long as you can afford it and are otherwise responsible with your purchases and money, it’s ok to splurge once in awhile on a “name”.

@yellowshoe:  It sounds like you are just drinking the Tiffany’s blue koolaide.  Wink  Yes they do rate their own rings however there does not seem to be much evidence that they are better than GIA.

@Jacqui90:  Some posters may not be aware that other jewelers make Tiffany style rings.  I don’t think the PP was being rude trying to inform OP that she has options.  Especially when she does not have a Tiffany & co near her.

Like another PP said I am a fan of and owner of jewels from that little blue box.  Let us leave this a dicussion of  0.5ct rings Tiffany and not for the OP.

Sometimes the heart wants what it wants. Would I personally spend big bucks on a Tiffany? Nope, but that doesn’t mean I’d have any business trying to talk someone else out of it. Also, if you’re worried about a .50 being too small, you’re going to have to take into consideration the size of your fingers and the size of your wallet. I’d suggest trying on some similar sized Tiffany replicas in the size you’re interested in at other jewelers before taking the plunge on “the real thing”.
