Tiffany Proposal ring

hi guys, thinking of buying a tiffany proposal ring.

Lucida setting

the spec,

Colour: G
Carat 0.48
Cut: VSI
Setting. platinum

after enquiry
it cost $8500

is it worth it?

if i change to 18K Gold ring setting, will it be more worth it?
cos i heard platinum ring not worth money.
the diamond no need to say

So small & its a lousy color...if your budget is 8.5k..u should get a diamond from a less branded retailer or a private jeweller..85k can get u close to a 1 carat diamond at a private jeweller & u can still do a tiffany setting..pple go woow at the size & not cuz its a small tiffany yellowish diamond..it might not look yellowish but it surely isnt white either..if u r restricted to budget no point getting a tiffany with a small carat & a bad color..sorry for being direct but u r asking if its worth it..so giving my 2 cents...

white gold will do...platinum is not just not worth it but also softer if i recall correctly...

Extremely overpriced IMO... you should post in the Proposal Ring thread... you'll get more feedback.

It depends on what you really want. For me I got a Tiffany ring because of the branding. Sure, private jewellers are significantly cheaper but personally a ring to me is a ring. It is not a piece of hardware but heartware. No one can tell what colour is it, what clarity. Only thing they can tell is the size and they will probably ask the brand. Same analogy I used - Why some people will buy a BMW when a lexus has similar specs but cost less?

I agree with you. So far most of my wife friends only asked about the size and brand. So i think that brand is very important when choosing a proposal ring.

Its like a bmw @ the smallest cc as compared to the usual 2l & above..

Lets say both gers are out chilling and they compare their diamonds..
A Girl - Tiffany
B Girl - Private Jeweller with Better Color/Clarity
Both diamond size abt the same

When they compare, B girl diamond sparkles more then the A Girl, how would the A Girl feel ?

Frankly speaking, is really up to individual.. hehe..
For me, I budget and also due to my past experience in this trade thus I go for private jeweller which is less den half the price of what TS have stated but better quality diamond. =)

In normal light and to the naked eye, I personally don't think that a diff between VS2 and VVS2 will have a significant impact on the "sparkle" of the diamond. Ditto colour. Sure, you can see a slight difference between a H and a D colour, but its really quite negligible. I think cut would affect most.

Nowadays woman are more educated.

They know about the 4Cs as well. Will be surprised if they only know about brands.

But ultimately the size is the first factor that comes to mind.

After weighing it all in, think <10k tiffany is a big rip off... Because for a few k more, the differences are quite significant. Tiffany pricing is like debeers, the blue box premium really jialat. I go for branding too, that's why end up at larry's haha
