5.0 out of 5 stars Gem of ring, 27 Oct 2011
This review is from: 0.42 Carat F/VVS2 Round Brilliant Certified Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring in Platinum (Jewellery)
For less than 1000, this ring packs a lot of bang for your buck. After more than a dozen hours scouring the internet researching and comparing diamond rings, I eventually went for this particular ring. I was after an engagement ring in the classic style, and that meant a round brilliant solitaire. I went for platinum over white gold as I wanted to avoid having the ring rhodium plated every year or so. The platinum looks great, beautiful colour and shine.

Some people might be reluctant to buy this type of product over the internet, but for me there are a few advantages. Firstly, privacy - if you're buying the ring as a surprise (which you should!) you don't want anyone to spot you shopping in town for it. Secondly, price - to get a decent ring on the high street (or even elsewhere on the net) you'll have to spend considerably more. Thirdly, you can avoid the high pressure sales environment of buying in person.

In terms of the 4C's I decided not to compromise on Cut, going for the Ideal (the best grade) in order to maximise the diamonds fire. After that, I was happy as long as the stone appeared colourless and free of inclusions to the untrained eye. ..However, with Colour and Clarity specifications of `F' and `VVS2' respectively, you definitely don't need to worry about that. I bought my own jeweller's loupe and can only barely see tiny inclusions. At 0.42 carat I was a little worried it might be too much on the small side. However, it's all about proportion, and set against a dainty (though strong enough) 2mm band and on lady's finger it's just the right size - though I wouldn't go too much smaller if you can afford it.

The service of Diamond Manufacturers was superb as well. Dispatch was within a day, and courtesy calls were received during the transaction. After-care service was also superb as I had to have the ring resized and they did this free of charge to a high standard, and with a one day turnaround.

My fiancé is absolutely delighted with the proposal and the ring, sometimes I suspect more so with the ring! She's not materialistic or a `girly girl' but loves the understated, sophisticated beauty of it. It's the perfect way to mark our engagement.
