I just saw this set at Helzberg's and liked it a lot.
- Has anyone ever bought from them?
- are they flexible with price, discounting, etc?
- what do you this of the set?

Thank you!!!

Hi
I absolutely love the round with pave look and the big ring effect.
It would be ideal if we could spend 4k TOPS!!!

I think you could do better here especially since that center stone is less than a carat and basically just slightly over 1/2 carat!!! My advice is get a larger solitaire *( certified ) I have never bought anything from that store .But I can tell you the network jewelers here can probably do better for a larger certified diamond that that!

I understand. But I am a bit worried that for our budget I wont like the size. I have really big, long fingers, anything looks too small.
And with our budget I couldnt get a bigger stone

Do you think that this is particularly a ripp off???

Thanks a lot!

Hi! The description says the diamonds are I1. Helzberg uses their own grading so that clarity could be more like I1-I2. If you aren't familiar with clarity grades that means the stones are visibly included and dull.
I understand you want the ring to have "presence" have you considered using something like a pink, blue, or yellow sapphire as the center stone with a eye popping diamond mounting?

ETA some ideas

My guess is that you could get a gorgeous 1/2 carat certified solitaire for what you can pay and you'll love it .
I'd stay far away from mall jewelry stores unless your buying a certified diamond that is GIOA or EGL but my guess is that you'll pay much more theer than here withthe network jewelers.Why not ask what you can get for say $3000- $3500 and go with a simple tiffany mounting.Yeras later you can always remount your solitaire but you'll be disappointed if you get a crummy included diamond that you have to look at forever.
