Tiffany engagement rings (especially The Classic Tiffany Solitaire which is often considered to be the quintessential engagement ring) are highly coveted by just about everybody on the planet.
With a worldwide reputation for excellence everyone from the rich and famous to the average girl next door hopes that their marriage proposal will come with a little blue box.
It's hard to believe that the original 6 prong Tiffany solitaire was created in the late 1800s. Since that time, both the Tiffany brand and it's trademarked shade of blue (as in that little blue box) have come to symbolize ultimate quality and craftsmanship in bridal jewelry.
Since 1837 Tiffany & Co. has been considered one of the world's premier jewelers and arguably the best jewelry design house in the US. They have always maintained an exceptionally high standard and believe that there is no compromising on quality.
When it comes to Tiffany engagement rings you can rest assured that your diamond will have the highest quality cut and be of exceptional color grade.
You shouldn't be intimidated by walking into one of their stores, they pride themselves on great customer service and understand that many people dream of owning one of their engagement rings so they start around the $1500 mark.
Admittedly, you're not going to get much for that price, certainly not a 1 carat diamond, but it will be an original Tiffany. A one carat Tiffany engagement ring will cost at least $9200, and that's just for starters.
If budget is not an issue, Tiffany & Co. will certainly be able to meet your needs. Their engagement rings can run far beyond the $1 million mark, if you're so inclined. If you happen to be at their flagship New York location you can check out their 128.54 carats Fancy Yellow Tiffany Diamond -- WOW!
In terms of style, Tiffany engagement rings have a timeless quality about them. Their designs are always classic and in keeping with the company's image. They will never succumb to the latest trends but instead rely on classic styling that will be appreciated for generations.
They offer several distinct collections for engagement rings including The Tiffany Setting (which is the classic 6 prong shown above), The Lucida, The Tiffany Novo, The Tiffany Embrace, The Tiffany Legacy, Tiffany Bezet and Etoile. We have to say that each of these collections is more beautiful than the other.
We recently went to visit the Tiffany store at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas and were amazed by how courteous and helpful the sales associates were when we inquired about engagement rings. They offered to explain to us the 4Cs and how Tiffany diamonds are of a certain minimum quality and grade. They knew we weren't necessarily going to by one but they were nevertheless extremely helpful.
Tiffany engagement rings hold a certain cachet that very few other designers or brands have. Because of that you will pay a little more for a Tiffany ring but you can be sure that what you are getting is a quality piece that you will cherish forever.
