    2.5ct Tiffany vs 3ct Super Ideal with Tiffany setting

    I’m not Layla, but I’ve always admired HPD’s New York Solitaire setting; it is is one of my favorite “Tiffany Style” settings. It is as stylish and crisp as the real Tiffany, IMO. This blog post has photos and videos of that particular setting. I think you can find videos of it on YouTube as...

    Does your halo setting and pave band sparkle?

    Hi all! I'm new to the thread but have spent soooo many hours reading incredibly helpful feeds here regarding halo settings and cushion cuts. I would have never known about or fallen in love with antique cushions were it not for this site. I've also practically memorized the websites of VC, LM...

    Review of Victor Canera + Alistair Kelsey (from Sydney)

    Hello! After receiving so much guidance and insight from the forum, it is time to give a little something back. Apologies if this runs on a bit long! Before discovering pricescope, I thought I had done an adequate amount of research prior to going to see diamonds in person. However, it was...

    HELP! Why are Harry Winston Diamonds So Sparkly?! Any equivalent?

    Just out of interest, do HW provide GIA certificates for their stones? It would be interesting to see their cut parameters.

    Recommending Settings to Posters on Rocky Talky

    So yes, I suppose we could try to categorize ring designers by price. It is hard, because as noted, it really depends on the actual setting. Ritani and Beverly K both have very mid range pricepoints and even some expensive settings, but they do also have some lower priced settings that are great...

    Cape diamonds - Brian Gavin

    Todd Gray gave a review over at NiceIce. Rather than (continue to) look at these as an "inferior color," or just a big low-cost diamond, people should look at them as an "alternate color." The first time I saw a Cape colored diamond, it was an antique diamond and I found the color too...

    Mark Turnowski/Engagement Rings Direct-His word is platinum

    My son originally bought a diamond in Florida, and we sent it to Mark, as we had read great reviews on his "Harry Winston" E-rings. The ring he created was beyond belief beautiful. The 1.5 oval came back to us looking like a 3 carat ring. The pave stones melted like butter into into the...

    Another review on Eternity Diamonds

    Hi everyone, I got back from my honeymoon and I was busy writing reviews for the hotels so I figured why not write one for the Jeweler :) I found Yoni on pricescope and did a little research to make sure both him and pricescope were not some elaborate scam. This was my earlier review on...

    WF ACA vs Expert Selection

    The only reason to get ACA is for guaranteed replacement purposes if it's ever lost and you have insurance that covers replacement with same kind and quality. "If I lose my Tiffany ring, will I be able to get the same name-brand replacement? It is not guaranteed. Review your policy to see...

    Help with Graff, Harry Winston, Cartier, and Tiffany

    The FIRST thing you're going to have to do is ask all the companies about that. I don't know what price range you're talking about but I do expect that with these companies that will affect whether or not they are able to accommodate your requests. AFAIK Harry Winston only makes custom rings for...

    Would you post a neutral review of a well-regarded vendor?

    Re: Would you post a neutral review of a well-regarded vendo This whole post just needs to put on a reference thread somewhere. So well sums it up! Long, but if only newbies would take the time to read the whole thing, it would totally be worth their time.

    Cartier 1895 or Harry Winston

    Yes, it is very important to understand that a brand name is not the same as a branded diamond. Branded diamonds are usually cut to the specific parameters of the brand, and then the best are hand-selected to be branded. The brand names don't do this with their diamonds afaik unless they offer a...

    Would you post a neutral review of a well-regarded vendor?

    Re: Would you post a neutral review of a well-regarded vendo There are certainly multiple "tiers" of vendors. I'm not sure DK is the best example of this because many of the unflattering posts referencing him here on PS have little to do with quality of work, or his customer service - which...
