Sharing My Vatche Three-Stone Pear Setting (310)

Hi all,

You guys were tremendously helpful a few weeks back with picking out a center stone + setting for my girlfriend, who fell in love with the Tiffany three-stone ring (http://www.tiffany.com/engagement/rings/round-brilliant-with-pear-shaped-side-stones. The original thread is here (https://www.pricescope.com/communit...es-aca-center-stones-for-3-stone-pear.220671/.

I ended up going with the Vatche 310 3-stone pear setting, and a WF Expert Selection 1.457ct G VS2 stone (http://www.whiteflash.com/loose-diamonds/round-cut-loose-diamond-3638371.htm). The pears are 0.60ctw G/H VS, I believe.

Anyway, I got the final product, and (as an entirely inexperienced buyer) I am happy with it. I asked WF to set the center stone lower than usual to try and mimic the "sleek" look that the Tiffany ring has - in the sense that the center stone is not raised and feels flush with the side pears. The result doesn't quite look like the Tiffany, but is elegant in its own way.

Please excuse my terribly grubby fingers. The ring is a 5 and barely fits around my pinky - my girlfriend is a 4.25 (needs resizing!)- so will look very different on her. She's extremely petite and 5'4".

Does anyone see anything that I should be alarmed about? I have plenty of time within my return / exchange policy, and the proposal is not in the immediate future.

The rest of the pictures can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/6Iu5j

For what it's worth, here are (poor) pictures of the stone she fell in love with at Tiffany (the ring, not the brand) - notice the size difference: http://imgur.com/a/OWzEe

Frankly your fingers aren't doing the ring justice. But given how good the smaller Tiffany ring looks on her, the ring you got her will look dynamite. She has gorgeous hands that suit the style well.

Haha - after I posted these I looked and thought WOOF - those are some ugly hands! Hers are MUCH better suited for this ring :).

Thought I should include the professional WF pictures as well:

Looks gorgeous!! When IS the proposal btw?
I'm quitting my job at the end of June, followed by us taking a two week vacation in Asia. When we get back, we're both moving to a new city (for me to go back to school). Proposing while on vacation seems to just make sense - starting our life together, both in a new city and engaged!

Not sure about the wedding band yet. She has always said that she'd do a simple plain platinum band if at all. We'll see!

Thank you to everyone for all of these comments! I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes it.

The Tiffany price really is shocking. It's also a G, although VVS1 (vs VS2) but a 1.28 vs. 1.46 and the price difference was nearly 2x. Crazy!
