I am debating between getting a Classic Tiffany Solitaire engagement ring for my girlfriend or for the same money picking out and buying a much larger loose diamond and having it set in a James Allen ring (Same people who are selling the loose diamond). About Her: She is not very materialistic is conservative in her dress and has a sweet and calm personality. She would never ask for something this nice, but she deserves the best. She is classy and I think most girls can relate to the brand Tiffany and Co. Inevitably girls at the office or anywhere else for that matter are going to ask about the ring! I know she would be happy with a ring from Costco if that's what I got her, but I want her to have a ring she can dote on, still wear when even when our finances are better in 20 years, and possibly pass on to our children. Which would be better? A. Smaller (Near) Perfect Diamond with Tiffany Prestige? or B. More Carats with much less Brand awareness, and an Imperfect (barely noticeable) Diamond color

Then go with whatever is the least flashy and expensive.0

if she isn't materialistic don't bother with the tiffany. get the better diamond... also consider carat size isn't often the most important feature. consider clarity and cut heavily. also consider looking at white gold as it can be half the price of platinum and you can put more into the diamond. ... just considerations0
