    Tiffany & Co.

    Even if you can get more elsewhere, the box alone will earn you mad props from her and her gfs.

    Do you like anything from here?
    If you want details and photos of individual items, just ask. Everything on white gold is 18K.
    This is all private collection. I don't have them in front of me right now but if I am correct most of them are in your budget.

    Pearlparadise is a great suggestion. They don't actually sell Mikimotos - Mikimoto is a branded cultured sea pearl, quality is very good, but they are massively overpriced. You can get an equal quality pearl from pearlparadise.com for a tiny fraction of the Miki price. I've recommended them on here before; they're really great. Unbelievable quality pearls at great prices. In the $500-$1000 range, you can find a really stunning pair of Tahitian black pearls. IMO, black pearls are an incredibly chic, refined, and stunning piece of statement jewelry. Clean, simple, and versatile. These are great: http://www.pearlparadise.com/130140-...rings3116.aspx

    second in particular is massively overpriced for such a simple design. better off just buying diamond studs.

    any woman in her right mind would rather have larger diamonds that don't come in a blue box.

    Women are generally not "in their right mind!"

    I'd also recommend getting simple diamond studs, and definitely NOT from Tiffany's - seriously, you'd be overpaying for the name. FWIW, I was able to get a paid of .50ctw studs (Ideal cut, hearts & arrows, J VS2) from GoodOldGold.com for $800. Fantastic vendor - I'd highly recommend them (they're also a PriceScope vendor, if that means anything to you).

    I vehemently disagree.

    My girlfriend specifically told me "no Tiffany's ever".

    I was glad to oblige with .50 ctw studs bezel set in 18k white gold. She was over the moon about them and I was happy with the price of $630 from blue nile.

    FWIW her sister has the bezel set Tiffany's and is a bit jealous of the earrings I got my gf as they do look much nicer.

    we get it, you're a perfect boyfriend. you know what diamonds to buy. your legs and abs are chiseled to the point of being approachable, but beyond reproach. your face sings with heavenly glory. I want to be you. [​IMG]
