It's an easy one to size. You can't see from the picture, but the bottom half of the band is about 2 mm wide and plain. Actually the transition from the wide to thin part is quite interesting, I'll snap a pic later.What a lovely band! I have read reviews where people with teeny tiny finger like you have taken rings to be sized down and the jewelers tell them they like to work on Costco rings because they are so well made. The best thing about Costco is that you could return it easily if it couldn't be sized!
I was wondering the same thing. I checked a few round solitaires in store today (no reason other than... why not) and compared to prices based on carat, colour and clarity (I'm ignoring the cost of the plain 14 kt gold setting). The Costco price is about the same as the top ~30% of Ideal stones with the same carat/colour/clarity. In other words, assuming the Costco diamonds are at the higher end of Ideal cut, then they're competitively priced. If the cut at Costco is low Ideal or anything below, then they're overpriced. I'm guessing it's the latter. (FWIW, this is at a Canadian Costco, and I checked the Canadian pricing)What is the consensus on the quality of their diamonds? I tried on a 5 stone ring there and it seems like a great price. The only thing is I can't find anything about the cut quality.
I'm in Toronto. The pieces in the stores are very different than what's on the website.@starrysim, that is a beautiful ring! I have never seen anything like it at Costco. I am betting your mom will adore it! What a sweet daughter you are!
I am curious, if you wouldn’t mind sharing, are you in the states? I have never seen this ring or your braided band at any Costco. I usually stop wherever we are (my DH calls it a “bling check”). I have been to Costco’s in many states but I usually don’t see much I haven’t seen either in person or online, but you pieces as well as Austina’s are/were completely new to me.
