I know there is more to a diamond than by its simply cut proportion numbers. I am buying online and there is a return policy, so when I see it, if something doesn't look right, I can return it. This ring is from tiffany and yes, it is expensive but I can afford it.

Is this YES NO or Maybe?

That's all can afford since it's Tiffany, but I did some research and it is cut well from what I've read.

Does the ring have to be Tiffany? Because you can get a larger, even better cut stone for the money if you consider other brands like Whiteflash, Brian Gavin Diamonds, James Allen, etc.

I tried to get her to change her mind. I showed her all of those websites and she knows. She said I can get her something like that but she had that disappointing sigh when she said it. She's a player. But I have the money, not like it's breaking the bank

What's it costing you?

If that's what she wants, that's fine. If she knows she is getting a smaller tiffany diamond vs a larger 'no-name' (in a sense) diamond, I think it's fine. You should get her what she wants, not what we want!

8,000. From my research, I can get a similar ring for about $4K. So I'm paying double. But it's a Tiffany!!!! she says. women..........

I have a diamond from them, it's amazing. I also have several from Whiteflash, BGD, and James Allen. Beautiful stones.

Yea, I'm trying to do one last ditch effort to save money on the ring, but she wants a verragio setting. Those are designer settings around $3000-$4000. After I buy the setting and the diamond, I am looking at around $6-$7K and I was just like, well, might as well buy the tiffany then

You'd still be able to get a nicer stone for $8000 all-in if you went with one of the vendors I mentioned.
