Yours is so beautiful!
Yours is so beautiful!
$3500 Neil Lane ring, it was discounted 50% off. Original price was about $7000. It fell right in our budget. Just over 1 1/2 cts.
We did get the wedding band with it, but ended up returing it.
Engagement ring: rose gold, 2.75 carats, color:I, clarity: sI1, cut:ideal. Size 8. It was over 10,000. That’s all my fiancé will tell me lol. Rather it was just about 10 grand or way over I have no clue. Wedding band is rose gold eternity, 3 carats and was around 3 grand. Again he won’t tell me the specifics on the price lol
Ok, the price of only the sapphire ring, (not including my new anniversary band pictured with it), was 14k, because it’s unheated, untreated ceylon sapphire. Though I got a great deal on the stone by my jeweler friend, who found this gem for me, the setting added to the pricehand made by a well known sculptor/ jeweler in my area, and his work isn’t inexpensive. For me, it was an upgrade from my original set, which was a champagne/yellow diamond set. That was about 4.5k, but I wanted a blue gem and something larger for my large hands! Ring size 7.5 and wide, long hands.
While I am uncomfortable giving my ring quote on a public forum, I will say it was very very expensive. My Fiance was determined to get me a big fancy ring because I had never had an engagment ring even though I was married befoe for over 26 years.
With that said, we found a designer setting we loved and purchased the diamonds ourselves, had a custom jeweler make the setting in platinum and it ended up costing thousands less than the designer ring in the store which had much smaller stones and was white gold! The stone quality was equal.
I’m curious to know price AND stats! It’s a really beautiful ring. 🙂 Do you have more pics?
And I’m glad that your Fiance wanted to, and could afford to, get you what you wanted.
The center diamond is just over 3 ct and each side stone is .40. All stones are H VS1. It is hard to see in that pic that this is a 5 stone ring. The center stone is set very high and I was concerned that it would get caught and bumped a lot – but so far – that has not been the case.
Ugh, sorry that the pic came out so huge. Appraised at ~$38K. The most beautiful thing i have ever seen.
8mm(2xarat equivalent) moissanite with a 1/2 carat diamond wedding band. Both totaling $3700. Just love love love my set & cannot wait to wear the band officially next April!!
Reviving a 3 year-thread to brag about how expensive your ring was? Oh dear.
I think this thread is very helpful to people. Real life examples of what you can get with just about any budget, from all over the spectrum of stone and setting types.
I don’t really feel it’s bragging, I mean it you don’t have to be a genius to understand diamond going rates. Just posting a clear pic with some stats is enough to give away the approximate cost.
