Hello again everyone,

So... I must once again say THANK YOU. This community has been absolutely amazing and so informative my quest to buy a ring became a real hobby. I feel like actually know what I was buying, and found the whole diamond experience fascinating.

After evaluating 100''s of certificates and seeing about a dozen jeweler''s, making a trip to NYC, and experiencing everything from 5th Avenue stores to 47th street and speaking to some of the highly recommended shops available on pricescope I finally bought my ring. I fell in love with the Tiffany Solitaire and had a stone on hold through USA Certed (1.25ct GIA ex/ex/ex) and was going to have a setting made by Superbcert. I was literally set on going this route and was about to wire money over to the diamond broker in NYC.


Then by absolute FLUKE I received a call and stumbled upon a silent charity auction and I bought this, which I wanted to share with everyone here..... I fell in love with it... I hope she will... The color, or should I say complete lack of color in a D stone simply amazed me compared to the G color stones I was looking at previously. I know many here are not fans of Tiffany, and honestly I did not have a brand preference, but sometimes some things are too good to pass up ;-)

Tiffany 1.04 CT, D Colour, VS1, with Tiffany and GIA cert, Excellent Cut, VG Symmetry, VG Polish, Fluorescence None, I don''t have the GIA cert with me so I don''t have the remaining numbers.

I have no idea what happened to my post title... "Finally GOT". It was supposed to be "Finally GOT IT. My experiences and my ring". Anyone know how to change the darn title?

A little more information of interest... the ring came from a charity auction, and I had it shipped to Tiffany Head Office in NYC for inspection, revaluation and re-sizing. I had a great experience with them, and they did not charge me a penny.

Beautiful!!! I''m always impressed with people who get a tiffany''s, but don''t pay the full price for it. Awesome, blue box without the additional premium in $$. Tiffany''s really does a nice job with settings, I love their design tastes and their classic solitaire is no exception. Congratuations!

what a gorgeous ring. I would be thrilled to open a Tiffany box, especially knowing he didn''t have to pay the markup for it. It is perfect - such a classic!

You did great! Beautiful classic ring. Such a white and clean diamond. I''m sure with that cut it must be amazing in person.

Thank you everyone for your nice compliments and comments.

A few days ago my girlfriend and I were with some of her friends, and they all started to talking about diamonds, and started talking about the earings and rings that they have.... It is hilarious as I listen to people talk and here things like "the 3 K''s are important", and the best color is "A" coming from some people.... BUT even though this site gave me what feels like a colelge education on diamonds... I kept my mouth shut and just pretended I don''t know or care about diamonds. I even got my girlfriend frustrated at one point when she brought up that she heard Blue-Nile is an amazing site with amazing prices (i guess advertising works)... and i just brushed it off... to the point that she said "it is not even worth talking to me about diamonds because I will never appreciate them"
... IF ONLY SHE KNEW


The longer I have it in my hands the more exciting this is getting.

I''ll make sure I post here... when she hopefully says "yes"

The D color just has this beauty to it. It is very different for me, since I was originally planning on buying an H, then a G. I was actually set on the G's and loved the G color stones I looked at . When people say that higher colors are "warmer" it is true, and is definately a matter of taste. A D color stone has this crispness and icyness that is hard to describe.

About the hand shots... if she says "yes"... i promise i'll get some. Maybe i will even show her this site
I just hope she does not like the site too much since diamonds have a way of getting adictive
