by hootpie » Jun 19, 2007 I was referred here by a member (thanks Lauren)...she said it was the best place to ask for advice. I have the option to get a 950 palladium setting and 5 year service warranty (unlimited sizing, cleaning, polishing, checking of the setting--on the entire ring, not just the setting) or a platinum setting (no warranty) for the same price (tiffany setting). I like that the palladium is more resistant, but I don't like that it is lighter. I like that the platinum is heavier, but I don't like that it dings easy. I'd ask my girlfriend, but I'm asking her to marry me and it would ruin the surprise if I asked for her input. She currently has a 14k white gold .5ct ring that hasn't yellowed and that she isn't allergic to, but I want to get her something higher quality for her engagement ring. I honestly can't decide between the two...help Edit: I should probably explain how I'm getting them for the same price: Platinum setting from whiteflash, which is where I'm getting the diamond - $450 Palladium setting from RB's - $180 Setting fee - $225 (yikes) Warranty - $75 Total - $480 I am paying a premium when I go with the palladium, but I also have the option to get the warranty.
