Upgrade for my wife

The simplicity that Blue Nile brings to shopping and buying diamonds is second to none. I was able to filter to EXACTLY what I wanted to purchase and the information I needed to make the best decision was readily available. The value I received on the 2 carat oval diamond I purchased far surpassed every jewellery store I visited.

2.61 oval. Amazing!

So glad I went with Blue Nile. Jewellers were trying to push me into things that were not perfect. My fiancée is obsessed with the ring and I couldn't be happier. I was a little nervous sending payment and waiting for ring. This is a legit company and they did everything secure. I would recommend to anyone.

Oval Cut Engagement Ring Review


This ring is so delicate and beautiful and looks amazing with my 2mm knife edge solitare oval engagement ring! It took a little trial and error as I first ordered the half eternity ring where the diamonds were a little bigger, I personally was also in love with that ring alone but thought it took away from my engagement when together as a set. This ring DAZZLES and sparkles like crazy and it is extremely petite and delicate looking. It truly compliments my engagement ring so well.
