Diamond Engagement Rings for a Bargain

In this photograph it may seem like the two rings are very similar in price, they are, but the non-name brand ring is actually 3 carats LARGER than the Tiffany’s ring. The one consistent thing about designer brand jewelry is that their diamonds are usually great color and clarity. You have to be careful because depending on the color and clarity the price will either be higher or lower. The non-name brand ring has a great color and clarity which is H/I in color and SI in clarity. SI stands for slightly included, so inclusions can’t be seen with the naked eye. H/I is virtually colorless. The scale starts at D, so that makes it 4 steps below a D. If you were to get a 5 carat round brilliant center stone from Tiffany & Co. the price will probably be over $100,000! Did we mention the ring on the bottom is set in platinum so it not only has triple the carat weight, but is set in a stronger more sustainable metal. If this isn’t a great deal we don’t know what is!
