No idea of budget but I'm guessing it will be under $10K. I dearly love the classic Tiffany solitaires engagement accessories - does anyone know whether we would be able to get one for less than $10K, and if so what the quality, clarity etc would be like? If I'm being overly optimistic, can anyone suggest somewhere else in Brisbane that I could get something similar-ish... Obviously, I'm incredibly inexperienced when it comes to diamond shopping, so any general tips are also welcome.
The key will be how large the diamond is. Fortunately since a Tiffany style engagement ring will only consist of a plain gold or Platinum band, the setting will use up very little of your overall budget. If you are shopping for anything less than a 1.5 carat diamond, a budget of $10,000 should be more than adequate to ensure an excellent quality diamond. I would strongly suggest that you buy a GIA certified diamond to ensure that the grading is accurate. I hope that helps!
A diamond is forever and you should begin your selection by knowing what to look for in your rock. To start with the four Cís are a must. When you see many variations you will know how the price varies according to these criterions and spend your 10 k wisely. A reliable jeweler and certification is a must
