@yellowshoe:  hehe…Fiance threw away my ring box the other day (the decorative one with the ribbon, not the leather one the ring actually sits in). I was so sad, and I have no idea why! It wasn’t even that pretty of a box, and it was just stuck in a drawer…but it’s not often a girl gets a nice package wrapped up with a pretty bow!

@StL.Ashley:  yeah, it is strange just mentioning it’s a Tiffany when you’re not asked. I have mentioned where my ring is from very proudly when someone asks, or mentions that it looks like a Tiffany, etc. but i have not brough it up except here on WeddingBee! and it’s usually in cases where someone is trying to encourage OP or someone to go elsewhere for a ring when their dream is a Tiffany, just cos it’s cheaper, etc is when i get riled up and defend it more. if someone has a dream ring i don’t believe in saying they shouldn’t go for it or go for something else, if i believe it’s better, it’s none of my business!

Just wanted to post that I never tell people my ring is a Tiffany either if I’m not asked. That is a weird thing I do. That’s why we have WB where we can show-off our rings! Wearing a Tiffany ring makes ME happy inside. No one has to know. And I also disagree with a PP who said that there will be a time when Tiffany rings will have no value. I don’t think that’ll ever happen.

This isn’t technically an engagement ring, according to the Tiffany website, but I don’t care! I wanted it! It’s .44 TCW and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

@BookishBelle:  Not always true some of the more unusual designs you do know where they came from. No other company makes my setting, and most of their settings if I ever saw another of their rings I’d know in about 5 seconds because they are literally that different from anything else on the market. I am extremely partial to this jeweler 😉 like you are to Tiffany’s. I never dreamed Id own one because they arent cheap just like a Tiffany’s. Fiance wasnt swayed by the price though he was swayed by the uniqueness of the design and wouldnt take my nos over cost for an answer. If someone doesnt own a piece of jewelery from a small custom shop like this you’re not going to know hey thats a XXX ring.  There are other designers like this as well. However for a standard ring you are correct no one will ever really know other than the purchaser and the wearer of the jewelery.I do agree you should stay within a price range that is reasonable for your expenses though, and that preference is based on personal desires and there is nothing wrong with wanting what you love.

@Anna22:  I’m with you 100% Tiffany’s will always have that name associated with them and have value for that reason. Its like Rolex, Fabroge, Mercedes all of it is name.

OP= I want to add its not just finger size that determines how a ring looks but the shape of your hand and length of your fingers. The over all proportions can really make the difference. I have a size 4 finger and a 2.36 carat sapphire that is the size of a 2 carat diamond. My hands are tiny I can wear childrens gloves! However my fingers are long compared to my palms so even though my stone looks big it doesnt look like its going to swallow me alive. This is something to consider if you have an elongated bone structure. I am like this in all my bone structure so I look taller than I am to most people at first as well. I’d reccomend trying rings on first even if its just to get a feel for proportions on your hand.

Here is my Tiffany classic cut which is .71 carats.  I will pair it with the 2mm channel diamond wedding band.

@azzie, @jacquie90, @morgenjen, @peonie, @bookish and @ everyone else,

LOVE YOUR RINGS.  Just classically beautiful.  No matter Tiffany or local jewelers, an excellent/ideal/very good cut stone is just breathtaking, really.

ETA (same to Tammie and Nyota’s rings, wow.

A question for all of the bees! The cut is supposed to be excellent for the Tiffany rings and I guess as GIA do not rate fancy cuts only the round that Tiffany cuts may guarantee a better fancy cut…would you agree?

Secondly and more importantly, a top class cut will appear larger than its carat weight as it will sparkle more..so if this bee buys her .5 carat round will it appear much larger? Thanks for reading!

Another question ladies and I would be really grateful if someone could reply with an answer! Is there a good saving to be made on engagement rings which are less than 1 carat?? I know the 1 carat rings are quite expensive! Thanks!!
