    I like number one the most too but beware of the I2 clarity. Already I can see some big dark spots on the ring modelled on the first of the above two photos that you posted. I'm afraid that you might be disappointed with this when you receive it.

    Is this the one you like most?

    The settings of the stones are different is their a name for them?

    Yes, this is the ring that I preferred out of the three that you posted above. I can see that the ring includes both round brilliant and step cut diamonds. The melee, round brilliant diamonds are prong set but the ones in the middle are set in a way that they sit firmly right next to each other, obviously in order to create the impression of a one single bigger diamond. I think that this also falls into the category of illusion settings but I'm not by any means as knowledgable as many other members in this forum, so I hope that other fellow PSers will chime in soon, in order to help you more!:wavey:

    I wouldn't buy any of these because the diamonds aren't high quality at all, and for $4k you could find something much better.

    The diamonds will be "dead" and won't sparkle much because they aren't well cut. So you'll have high ct weight, but none of the benefits of nice diamonds (fire/scintillation, etc).

    What is your budget? We can help you find something much better!

    Have you looked at Costco? Pretty jewelry and I've heard here that the quality is pretty darn good for a big box store.

    think she might be in the UK - suggest Blue Nile for better quality - the rings you have shown are very poor quality as far as clarity of the diamonds. Why not check out the Blue Nile site and look for rings where the clarity is no lower than S1?

    I was going to suggest Costco too! I have two rings from Costco and I am really happy with the quality, the diamonds are clear and sparkly and they are well made.

    That is an excellent recommendation. Night and day from the original rings under consideration. Costco puts their vendors through great scrutiny to get space in their store. And you have the full accountability with Costco should you need it. And, let's face it, it is so much nicer to have a ring with an actual center stone versus a bunch of little stones pushed together to give the illusion. This is just a much more quality piece. I mean, it's an I color, VS2, in a double halo, in 18k!!! Like who wouldn't want that?... I know I would!!!

    The clearance price is more realistic, I was going to comment that all of these rings are massively overpriced for the carat weight and diamond quality! For £4K you could easily find a gorgeous diamond and setting. Blue Nile is good for people in the U.K., but there are other U.K. based sites like 77diamond that allow you to make your own ring, eg, (just picked a stone through the advanced filters, I know nothing about Princess cuts, this is just an example of what you could do after a bit more research)
