Doubt you can get it in time if want custom make. It takes around 4-6weeks as it’s handcrafted in hk

The sales lady that attended to me told me that my customised design will take 1 - 2 months as their workshop for ring customization and diamond setting is in Hong Kong.

Anyways, i hardly see peeps here go for the standard ring design provided by JP/HOH as the price is the same as a customised one(not including melee diamonds etc). Even special engravings such as the one i decide to do for my ring too(face of our corgi), did not cost anything extra so why not get a placeholder ring for your deadline(proposal i suppose) on the 26th? Then slowly design a ring that suits the two of you, u can even ask your S/O to chip in some ideas?

So last min? You can forget about customization.....only can go for those ready made liao. Especially not V day period they rushing orders for those rushing for this week, i doubt any customization shop will rush for you, maybe those local workshop ones which may be priced higher.

So last min hard to get a good for value one...suggest u propose later or as the other suggested, buy just the diamond and use clip to propose first and then design the setting together.

Yup, i think most shops willing to give u free, its like a temporary clip that holds onto the diamond, it holds it like a real proposal ring (however meaning to say you wont be able to take the photo of your ring during the proposal day as it may look weird).

Also the ring clip sizing are probably in the bigger range, hence it may be abit loose on the finger.

First time finding proposal ring

Hi all,

I am drowned in the amount of information regarding all the diamonds.

I am currently looking for a ring that is around 0.3-0.4 crt with a budget of 3k. May I know where is a good place to start.

In addition, there's a sale on-going for Valentine's period. May I know if the sales is worth chasing?

Thanks.

Is that budget including the ring?
Have u seen an actual 0.3c size? Would u be happy with it?
If not, perhaps you should go look ard comparing color grades from E to I and clarity grades from Vs to SI1 and decide what is your tolerance level and what you can maximise

My gf's finger is a bit on the smaller end (around size 6), hence, after checking around, we realised that 0.3+ seems okay.

And yes, the budget includes the ring. I was thinking of getting perhaps color grade E and VS clarity.

So I am not sure if it is worth while to get it from the sales. I am not sure if those on sales are of good quality. I am currently considering Lee Hwa's (but not the desiree).

In addition, does anyone know's what exactly is the desiree series versus the normal ones carried by Lee Hwa?

Go check out HOH, you should be able to get a ideal cut 0.45 E VS1/2 for $3k with ring.

The destinee is just their signature cut compared to normal round brilliance for the rest of theirs

I was there during the 50% off new year promo and I can tell you that itís no sale.
The normal Lee Hwa is not even all guaranteed 3ex. Their top of the range is promoted as AGS000 but thatís just another grading lab. Any of the super ideal online dealers will all use AGS grading.

If u HOH, ask to see a F n G color as well

Agree with this, head go HOH and check out ideal cut F/G color, Vs2/SI1 clarity.

Those so called 50% sales by those brand jeweller are not really sales and typically clearing off Lower quality diamonds.
