Gollum wants to steal the ring!
Picking a diamond and selecting a setting is super easy on Blue Nile (BN). BN has the best prices on diamonds. After doing months of research and checking out other places, I settled on a .83 carat D Color, VS2 cushion cut from BN. I wish there were more unique setting selections, however, if you're risk-averse, shop here: We went with a classic timeless look, the platinum scalloped pave diamond setting. Platinum is 95% pure, really excellent value. Regarding the online platform, I also wish you can search by fluorescence, length/width, depth, table, polish, symmetry, girdle, cutlet, and measurements, but you can't, those details are found only after viewing a diamond. Nevertheless, Customer Support is friendly and knowledgeable and quick to give recommendations and search for discounts if you call in. Signing up for a Blue Nile credit card is easy and I got an interest-free 12 month period to pay off. Shipping is quick and the package low-key to prevent theft, but the box and ring box the ring came in had some blemishes on it. The box is fancy and HQ though and the ring comes with appraisal/retail value and GIA report. Engraving is easy to read but the "&" symbol between our names doesn't have space after my name. My diamond selection has an excellent cut, so its carat comes more from its weight than it's size as I've seen similar carat size look bigger but not as luminescent or have as much fire and scintillation, so to me, it's a perfect size, however, the stock pave diamonds on the setting don't look as big as the picture, but they contrast really well with the center-stone. Overall, the ring looks really amazing, diamond and ring sparkle and the ring has a good weight to it (1.26 TWC). I love my decision and my fiance loves the ring. Can't stop looking at it!!! I will be back to buy more stuff from BN.
