    hey missyf!! i'm almost the same as you!! we got it from house of hung, at far east plaza. where did you get yours? i agree that getting a non-branded ring from a private jeweller is way better, with a huge diamond of the same quality for the same price!

    it is getting more and more common for the couple ot get something that is not from the same range. For one, they might like different styles (e.g. matt or platinum for the groom, and a shiny elegant diamond studded one for the bride). Also, jewellers are very smart in selling the "couple" rings, so buying 2 of the same range is more expensive than buying 2 separate rings from different ranges. As long as the 2 rings have some similarities to symbolize unity between the couple, i think it is fine

    which material for wedding bands are better?
    platinum or white gold?
    since it's going to be worn everyday, it has to be hardy and withstand knocks here and there.

    Hi ladies,

    Do you think getting rings from shops like LeeHwa, Citgems etc is worse off than from places like Meyson etc? SO has been bringing me to shop around but after a while, all seem the same to me. I look for excellent cut, between D to F, as well as 0.4 to 0.5 carat size. This is good enough for me since i've very small and skinny fingers!

    i think what is important is your diamond's specifications and authenticity, rather than the brand of the shop you are getting from.

    each of these shops have their own specialty and have to get a ring that you absolutely love.

    for me, i will not consider citigems, sk jewellery, taka jewellery as i dont think they meet my requirements. lee hwa's destinee, forevermark, soo kee's brillant rose are good choices for decent diamond selections in my opinion.

I really don't think price should be the deciding factor as you are going to wear the ring for life, choose one that makes you fall in love each time you look at it =)
    Initially, both of us have the mutual agreement that we can only buy the pair of ring that both of us must fall in love with. If either one dont like it, we dont buy.

    I feel... It doesn't really matter if my wedding band have stone or not. I dont really care so much about the stone, because I've already got a stone from him when he propose to me.

    We walked many shops hunting for wedding band... Larrys, Love & Co, Lee Hwa, Goldheart, Soo Kee, Charlotte. Nothing impress both of us. It's either i like it, he dont like. Or he likes it madly, but i dont think so.

    In the end, we fall in love with a pair with Gold + Platinum displayed at Tiffany & Co. But... It's kinda.... over budget. Sighh!!!

    I dont think we could afford it for now. Haiss... So pathetic.

    What I did was to go on certain websites such as vivodiamonds to do a comparison with the shops here. Eventually, I bought the diamond from a wholesaler via a jeweller and the setting was done by the jeweller. Retail jewellery shops will be good to go as an "education trip".

    You definitely need to do some homework before you narrow down to the kind of rock you want. It is not neccesary that the bigger the carat means it will look better. I have seen some 1 carat cushion-cut ring that looks really out of proportion on a lady's (asian size 9) finger. So I suggest that you match your partner's finger size to the carat and cutting. And of course, the rest of the 4Cs (clarity and colour) too.

    GIA certified diamonds should suffice, some wholesalers/ jewellers will try to sell AGS certified diamonds but honestly, I don't see much difference for the extra premium to pay for this AGS certification. When viewing GIA certified diamonds, take note of their serial number, you can verify their specs again when you go onto the GIA website. IMHO, simply comparing specifications are never enough, I feel that I still need to physically eyeball the diamond itself, for inclusions and that bling factor. ;) Hence, I will only use online sites such as the abovementioned or bluenile just as a price mirror.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I'm unsure about the seashell diamond ring.

    And yes, i do have a charlotte. My HTB gave it to me during proposal. Simply love it. The sparks of the Gabrielle diamond is extraordinary. If you do not have the intention of "upgrading" or changing your ring, i think Charlotte is a good choice.

    Some people might have the mindset of upgrading their stone into a bigger one in future. If you do have such mindset, then, Charlotte is not suitable.

    For me, I'm very old-fashioned mindset one. Haha. i feel that proposal ring (with that expensive rock) is a gift, a request, a proposal to a woman to marry the man. So, i think i will not be selling, trade nor upgrade it. It will be forever. Because the proposal moment is just once in a life. The feeling, the "butterflies" in your stomach... it will never be the same again.

    Wedding band... i do feel that i can always get another pair during our wedding anniversary (let's say 5 or 10years later). And the old pair? Keep it. It is a good memory for both

    I have a friend. They buy a new pair of wedding band every year to celebrate their wedding anniversary. She says that this is like a "renew" to her marriage every year. To kept reminding each other the promises that they had made when they put the ring onto each other's finger wo. But not all people will do that la. Especially chinese. Hahahas...
