Sorry I’m not trying to be rude. I’m just curious to now about other girls rings. Also how much was it? The ring I want is almost 5000 dollars for 1 ct. Brand: Henry daussi and I don’t know if that’s a bit expensive for just 1 ct
Is the center stone 1 ct or is the total of the ring 1ct? I ask because my center stone is only .5ct but my ring total is over 1ct because it’s a halo with a twisted band similar to the picture you shared. The issue with whether or not it’s worth it really comes down to a few things- what is the band? Is it gold (10k, 14k, 18k, etc) or platinum? Also, the clarity of the diamond is important when determining value.
Definitely wouldn't ask someone that in person lol, but hey this is a forum for all things weddings. My ring is a 1 ctw, multiple diamonds in the center rather than one large diamond (kinda like it that way cause I feel like its even more sparkly ) lol. FH got my ring for $1,800 on sale, I think he said it was originally 3k or 4k? You also have to consider diamond color and clarity in the pricing, as well as the metal. My ring is "I or better" for color, "I2 or better" for clarity, and 10k white gold. Absolutely love my ring (even though I wanted to strangle FH when he told me how much he spent!)!
The center stone on your ring looks a lot bigger than 1 ct to me. I'm thinking that the total of the ring is 1 ct (for the side stones) and that the center stone might not be a diamond, I think one that big would cost a whole lot more than 5k, but I'm also no expert!
Looks like its 1 ctw and the center stone is 5/8 ct. The center stone color is a little yellow, but that's all personal preference honestly. I'm no jeweler, but I would say that's a fair price. Just as long as you realize it's not 1 ct center stone, that would be a whole lot more expensive lol
I would go to the actual store to see the ring in person. It seems from the online rendering that the center stone is noticeably yellow. I had my ring custom made at Robbins Brothers. They helped us pick out a center stone in the cut, color, clarity and carat weight we were looking for. Then I picked out the setting that I liked from the rings they already had. They were able to get the setting custom made to fit my center stone.
Daussi lover here 🙋🏼♀️. $5,000 for a 1ct is going to be average for his designs. That being said, you can typically buy his settings separately from the center stone. Which can help you cut down on the total price depending on cut and clarity. Mine is a 2ct round center with a halo and stones down the side. I believe it was around $14k or $15k.
Fiance picked out the stone, and I had it made. .7ct center stone (color isn't great, but the cut and clarity are almost perfect) and the setting was about 2,500 for 18 karat white gold (not rhodium plates).
We had a family friend make the setting and put the stone it. Don't have a picture of it, but it was all done by hand.
5k seems like a lot for a ring to me, but if your guy can afford it go for it. I'd just hesitate to spend that much on a mass produced ring. The depreciation is more than that of a car.
My fiancé picked a ring out for me and it was originally $2000 but because we’re both broke college students, i told him to get me something cheaper. we found the EXACT same ring but in sterling silver for $70 instead. i didn’t really care if it was cheap or not, i love it so much!
I have a Leo diamond ring, 1 1/8 total carats, center stone is 3/4 carats, White (I), S1, 14k white gold. Originally was $8,500, but he got it during a sale for around $6,000. Def look into the clarity and all that, they will determine the amount. If he can afford it, go for it! It’s nobody's business how much your ring cost anyway 😉
My advice is to determine the price of the setting vs the price of the diamond, most settings are overpriced compared to amount of metal value due to designer name, which similar designs can be found in no designer name. Diamonds have a more consistent rating and evaluation system, just be sure it is either GIA certified or lab grown to ensure quality. I've heard it's better to get a great diamond and upgrade setting as your tastes change then have a pricy setting with a poor quality stone.
FH got my ring at Diamonds Direct. He had to pick out the diamond and then picked out the band part of my ring. I really didn’t want a engagement ring but he insisted on it. He paid a total of $4500 for my ring. It totals up to almost 1ct diamond.
