Exactly How to Get a Great Deal on a Diamond

Hi there! If you’re new here, welcome. I’m re-posting a few of my old favorites for the new (and growing) audience here. I’m so happy you clicked over from Insta or Pinterest or Tumblr, and I hope you enjoy an insane amount of engagement ring eye candy and rambling advice about how to score a great deal on them.

Diamond Shapes by Personality

When it comes to diamond shapes, there may not be many (under a dozen) but the setting is what makes their personality – and yours – shine through.

I’m so happy you clicked over from Insta or Pinterest or Tumblr, and I hope you enjoy an insane amount of engagement ring eye candy and rambling advice about how to score a great deal on them. If you read through my posts about Cartier, you know how I feel about knockoffs. Not a fan. Not for designer jewelry, not for designer handbags, and certainly not for Swiss (“Swiss”) watches.
