like most of the girls already said here it depends on the size of your finger, i have a tiffanys lucida and because my ring size is 6.75 something like 0.6 carat did look quite small on me! they do however sparkle so much πŸ™‚ we ended up getting one carat, it looks really nice and doesn’t overwhelm my hand! it does look massive though on smaller hands..

@LannaMi:  What I love MOST about them is that you CAN’T tell where a ring is from ever! It’s not like some LV bag with their label plastered everywhere, it’s a personal thing that only you know (well, and Wedding Bee, lol). I’m just speaking anecdotally when I say mine sparkles more, I don’t know if that has ANYTHING to do with the brand, and of course it may just be a bias since I, like all women, love my ring, lol. 

 

I would never ask a guy to buy a ring that he couldn’t afford just because it was a brand name…as I said in my first post, my Fiance didn’t even know that Tiffany was a “thing”, in fact I never told him anything about e-rings other than years ago saying (in response to a gaudy celebrity ring) “Oh man, I’m so boring I really just want a smaller round solitaire”. He stumbled into the store on his own and chose the ring because he thought it was the nicest one he has seen and loved the low profile. Also their customer service is excellent, they treat you like gold when you walk in the door, and we even were sent a handwritten personal note from the lady who sold us our wedding bands, which I know is a silly little thing, but it’s those touches that make it feel like a special purchase πŸ™‚

@NovaRising:  i have only the one so far! but i am really glad my first little blue box was my engagement ring πŸ™‚ i hope to get my wedding band from there too, but Fiance will get his from a different store as he liked theirs better, but I liked the one at Tiffany’s better with my e-ring, Tiffany Lucida 3mm yellow gold wedding band πŸ™‚

@BookishBelle:  I agree the service is great.  I hate when they send my items to New York for repairs or soldering but they have always called and emailed to keep me informed of the progress.

@BookishBelle:  I think we all are pretty biased about our rings πŸ™‚ After all, the men we love picked them out for us! I’m only two weeks in so I can’t stop staring at mine, especially when it catches the sunlight!

@NovaRising:  Oh, see I live in a NYC suburb (only 45 min commuter train), so while our rings were bought in CT, I got mine resized and will always have it clean/repaired at the NYC store…for resizing I brought it in first thing in the morning Saturday, played around the city all day and had it back on my finger correctly sized in time for dinner that evening πŸ™‚

Since you can’t actually try on a Tiffany .50 carat ring, I would go to a local jeweler and try on similar rings to see if you like the size of the stone on your finger.  Then you can order the ring you want from the Tiffany’s website and have a pretty good idea how it is going to look before you get it and you’ll know the size of the diamond will be right for your hand.  Win-Win!

@Jacqui90: LOVE those little blue boxes. I have a collection of the boxes and bags in my old room at my parents’ house. My parents are always threatening to toss them, I beg them to keep them…but I don’t actually want them in my own home. HAHA. I just can’t bring myself to toss such a pretty box!

@BookishBelle:  I am so jelly.  Is it odd that I plan to visit that location when I go to NYC?

I have Tiffany’s jewelry, but I wouldnt buy anymore. My e-ring was custom made, stones hand picked and the quality is as good, if not better than the Tiffany’s stuff I already own, but the price was drastically less and I got 3 times the carat weight than if I had gone for another blue box. No one will know from looking at your ring where it came from, the only way to know it is from Tiffanys is if you tell them, and then I have to wonder why name dropping is so  important. Tiffany’s stuff is pretty, I fully admit I have some nice peices, but they are not any better than the jewelry I have from other places that are the same cut and clarity and the nicest peices I have were custom made.

@Jacqui90:  Yeah, I definitely didn’t say there was anything wrong with wanting a Tiffany and Co. ring.

OP DID mention that she and her SO sre price-concious and she didn’t want a small stone, so I was just offering a (less expensive) alternative.  No one will know if your ring is or isn’t a Tiffany design unless you go around telling them (which, IMO, is a strange thing to do). A lot of people don’t realize that Tiffany designs are available elsewhere, thanks to T&Co’s excellent marketing campaign.

Honestly, I think Tiffany defenders are as bad as Apple defenders sometimes – and I say that as a lover of Apple products. It’s overpriced and you’re paying a premium for the name – and that’s okay. It doesn’t make it any less special. Just because someone points those things out doesn’t mean they are attacking your purchases/beliefs.
