it's same the other way around.

otherwise why do high-end brands even exist?
diamonds are different. the brand is meaningless. they all come from de beers who artificially keeps the price high by limiting supply.

Diamonds are a commodity, independently certified by GIA. Really, high end brands exist because they generally have a wider selection and more high end diamonds.

I went to Tiffany only to discover their diamonds weren't good enough quality for my standards and they were unwilling to make me a ring from a loose stone. I went with Blue Nile and I'm glad I did.

I ended up with a gorgeous E Color, VVS1, Signature Ideal cut, around 1.5 carat with no florescence, and excellent polish and symmetry. It's laser inscribed with GIA certification, and also certified by AGSL. It's set in platinum...simple, but stunning.

"You can't tell the difference" is just salesman talk trying to sell you a lesser stone...I know it's an extremely rare stone and that's what I wanted for my wife. It's true, you can't tell the difference by looking, but my wife's E color is absolutely colorless and nearly flawless It really does make those Jared and Zales diamonds look yellow when other girls compare rings.

Be ready to pony up though...quality diamonds aren't cheap. Sure, I could get more bang for my buck, but I wanted a nearly flawless, colorless stone.

Blue Nile has everything and great customer service.

you seriously needs some lotion bro!! haha
I'm actually thinking about going into ring store to get estimate how much I'm looking to spend.. btw I love the ring man. it looks great but it really depends on how big/small hand size is. you can ring decent size diamond and it'll still look big on small hands. vice versa.

Since the purchase has already been made, I think this thread should only consist of positive comments! It doesn't matter how the ring looks. She is saying yes to YOU and not some piece of carbon set on a circular piece of metal.

Congrats man! I think the ring looks perfect!

I'd really do smth abt those fingers though.
