Hello everyone, I just found this site and it looks as though a wealth of knowledge is here. I would like the forums opinion of a purchase I made yesterday. I was at Costco and purchased an engagement ring my girlfriend (now fiancée) absolutely adored. I was not crazy about the color (I) but it is a beautiful piece none the less. The stats are as follows:
One Platinum mounting Duel Shank, weighing in total approx. 5.9 DWT with 109 natural diamonds
One modified brilliant cut, measuring 5.52 X 5.41 X 4.14 MM, Weight 1.04 Carat, Dept 76.5 %, Table: 74%, Girdle: Thin to medium, Color I, Clarity VVS (2), polish/symmetry: Very Good/ Very Good (B) 108 round brilliant cut, estimated total weight 1.08, Color (H-I) clarity: VS (1) VS (2) IGI certification
We had the choice of another ring very similar style, with a color of F, but a tier lower than the above ring on the other 2 important categories (Cut/polish, clarity). It was a single shank though, but same style. I purchased the ring for 6K and after price scoping the stone I’m not all that impressed. The ring looks great but I’d rather have a better color for the 6K price tag. I’ve seen better color (F-G) at Costco for less money. I guess what I’m asking is how did I fare on this transaction? I know they have a great return policy so I feel my options are open. The only problem is getting it off my GF’s finger. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
