by SimoneDi » Dec 19, 2018 @Corely I have been quietly following your journey and I am really happy that you were able to get a refund and start fresh (hopefully with the help of this community) once you and your SO are ready to purchase an engagement ring. I am certain that your trip to Paris will be magnificent and I love your Cartier trinity/classic band idea. That said, I would advice you that you stick with the classic design and forgo the diamonds. The price hike just doesn’t seem justifiable considering that you have another upcoming purchase and knowing that your fiancé-to-be doesn’t even like warm metals and that the purchase will be non-refundable, if she doesn’t like it. My suggestion would be that you go with the small or the classic versions: https://www.cartier.com/en-us/colle...r/rings/b4086100-trinity-de-cartier-ring.html https://www.cartier.com/en-us/colle...r/rings/b4052700-trinity-de-cartier-ring.html That way, if she wants to exchange it for something else, you are likely to find other alternatives and not feel like you have to stick to the higher price. The $1k price difference can go toward her center stone.
