Depends.

It's not a Tiffany copy. Or really, even close. So if you are after a Tiffany copy... no. But it's a pretty setting if all you want is a nice setting for your diamond.


ETA: The second one isn't a Tiffany copy either... though it's closer. Also, a nice setting. But it depends what you are after.

Well if the setting is appropriate or not is mostly a matter of taste but if it is a 6 prongs knife edge solitaire Tiffany replica you are looking for, then the one you posted seems definitely not suitable. The tiffany doesn''t have a cathedral on both sides of the head and the head itself is not "tulip" shaped like the real thing.

About the taste question, I find this setting too heavy but it is really a personal thing.

You may want to check this thread https://www.pricescope.com/forum/show-me-the-ring/just-got-my-fiances-engagement-ring-back-had-the-setting-changed-to-superbcert-s-tiffany-replica-t57558.html for a "much closer to the real look " replica of the Tiffany setting.

Thanks both. Funnily enough, I thought the first one was a little too heavy (manly).

Does anyone know of anyone in the UK that can provide quite pretty settings (possibly Tiffany style, but not essential). I would be looking for lower price range rather than expensive professional copies.

Did you check with Bluenile UK ? I don''t know if they accept to set stones that are not purchased from them but it is worth trying.
