My bf and I went to Tiffanys in Tysons Corner, VA. I tried on a 3 carat E VVS1 diamond for fun ...it had a hefty price tag of 250K. I had fun even tho the sales person had a nasty attitude ..... :wink2: oh well... here are the pics!

haha I wish.... :lickout:

I was surprise to find out that the stones are not certified by GIA or AGS. They are "Tiffanys" certified. Interesting.... They said that Tiffanys has a high standard for Cut quality than GIA and AGS.

WOW!! It looks gorgeous and HUGE!! (how come everyone else's 3ct looks big except mine?!) What finger size are you?

Not worth the quarter-of-a-million price tag though.

How fun! Last year when I went to the Intergem show, I tried on a 3 ct just for fun and it was my size so it fit perfect. It looked huge on my size 4 finger. But yeah, definitely not worth the quarter of a million pricetag. And what is with these Tiffany sales people and their nasty attitudes?! I swear every time I go in there I am treated poorly too.

My finger size is 3.75 ... my bf almost said to the sales person "Does that attitude come free with a price tag?" but he didn't... hehe... but I wished he had. It was one of those things you think about saying and you stop yourself but then you wish you had after??? -_-

Oh that is HUGE :D
And so overpriced :D

I am sorry to hear everybody is getting bad treatment at Tiffany's, my experience is different. We always get nice and polite sales assistants and even when I tell them that we are not buying that, but I'd like to see it anyways, they pull out whatever I want with a smile on their face. =)

As for the certificate, "smaller" diamonds get only the Tiffany certificate, above 1ct gets GIA as far as I know?

I've had good experiences at the Tiffany in my town. And I've experienced quite a few of their sales staff! One time, this guy was insistent that I try on their fancy yellow diamond rings. And recently, I was wondering if I could afford some DBTY small studs (I couldn't) as my Blue Nile Signatures are large for everyday. The associate pulled out these studs that were way more than I could afford, then gave me an evil smile and said, in her foreign accent, "Vee are going vild now!" :lol:

Another assistant offered to clean my jewelry, gave me a leaflet about Tiffany gems, and the others have just generally been polite.

Beautiful ring! The Tiffany's in Tysons lacks in their personnel - if you ever go again, try the Tiffany's in Chevy Chase. Much better customer service - even if you are just looking!

How fun! I love going to Tiffany's and trying on stuff. The Tiffany's at Las Vegas, in Ceasar's Palace AND Bellagio, both have really nice staff. I go every year in March and July and the staff actually remember me sometimes and are sooo polite. Tiffany's Beverly Hills had not only nice staff, but a super nice and helpful jeweler in the repair section, he's been there for years, Tom, I think. He helped me when I sent my eternity band back to New York for cleaning and valuation. If people don't have a good attitude they should not work in a service job. Sorry about your bad experience. Ya know what I found odd? Except for Tom in Beverly Hills, who was a genius at his craft, I found the sales associates at almost all the Tiffs I went to weren't very knowledgeable about diamond cut. I would ask them about certain stones and they really didn't understand my questions. Crazy huh? When you sell $250,000. stones, I would think you would have experts showing them. Thanks for sharing your pictures, I loved them.
