    Dear all, I am new here... in fact this is my 1st posting to seek guidance and enlightenment from all.

    I will be proposing to my gf of 5yrs very soon.
    And I have been looking at rings from the usual jewel shops, until I read from this forum on Love & Co. The prices are quite decent.

    I am pondering over this diamond ring shown to me...

    0.77 carat
    E colour
    VS1
    Cut/Polish/Sym all Excellent
    Damage: $9129

    A good buy?

    iamken : Ic ... hmmm ok

    Thanks Geraldine.

    Now the F1 thingy is in town with lots of road diversion... think I will pop down after this week. The Vivo shop is abit quiet. So the moment I stepped in, all the SAs eyes (and the cctv) zoomed onto me. Luckily the proposal rings section is at a small corner, so I just parked myself there. But their sevice is very good.

    But my word, they have a HUGE wedding band selection covering most of the shop. Can't imagine me browing thru them with the SA following me... will feel pai sei.

    I think Love & Co prices are slightly better than the others. Most likely will get the ring from them.... though I still got a few more shops to recee.

    hi iamken,
    u can actuali take a look at wholesalers like eclarity(amanda) or josi gems(simon)...diamonds there will b cheaper n more value for $$, as they do nt need to pay for advertising n high rental rates...can google the names to get e numbers...

    baobeiek New Member

    hi iamken
    actually u can go to orchard hotel there n try

    I have actually contacted eclarity..... wanted to meet her today, but her schedule and my timings clash.... I will contact her to try to meet up again.

    But frankly speaking, I am not very comfortable buying from theese 'wholesalers'. The diamonds may comes with genuine GIA certs, but how can we tell if the cert is referring to the rock. Sorry if I offend anyone. I am just speaking from an dummy's point of view.

    But I will still go to eclarity.... maybe I will be convinced =)

    iamken,
    diamonds of 0.3 and above have a 'IC' no lasered onto e girdle..tis IC no will be stated on e cert oso..U can ask amanda to show u e no. Tis is hw u can be sure tat shops dun chng ur diamond if u bring to them for washing...=]

    icic....

    so I have gained wisdom and knowledge again.

    baobeiek New Member

    iamken : dun worry abt the GIA cert
    actually get from those wholesalers somethin is worth and the cutting / color etc will be better from the retail shop
    as for my proposal ring oso get from wholesalers one as my hubby also like u doesnt know anythin abt diamond ...
    but our friend do show him the gIA n Ic number inside the diamond

    Hiya all,

    It was fantastic. The service was good. And the prices are much cheaper than ALL jewel shops.

    Will write a detailed update on the forum for all to share.

    Now going to watch the F1 on telly =P

    hi yeah try josi gems! its really value for money, lol.. my husband got my proposal ring from them at $3500. mine was a 0.55 E colour VVS2 somemore.. agreed that cos they do not have advertising or marketing involved thus the relative lower prices. but that does'nt mean their designs or quality are not there. in fact they're more willing to customised and help you to design your ring for you too..

    Hi all, have not heard abt josi gems. But am quite surprised at the wide range of bands at Love & Co. Have not seen such a concept here in Singapore. Seems like the people here are quite happy with Love & Co [​IMG] anything in particular to recommend?

    hi all, i just went to love and co. @ vivocity with my colleague and i must say that i am AMAZED at their huge range of pretty wedding bands!!! i was actually narrowing down my choices to soo kee and lee hwa before i went love and co... anybody know if they accept instalment plan and i also check that they have 10% discount for citibank card...
  18. breegal

    breegal New Member

    It's like a wedding band heaven!! they are known as THE WB specialist. It's wonderful that Singapore has such a concept shop. Gives people like me less things to worry about. yep, i believe the do have an instalment plan [​IMG]

    For my case, my fiance bought me a ring from sookee before proposal, i don't want to keep it in the safe when i wear my wedding band, would i be able to upgrade the value into my wedding band?

    hi, i just want to share my good experience with love n co @ suntec branch with Calvin.

    to be frank i rarely have praises for salesperson because they either don't make an impression or make too much impression coz they are pushy. but those who deserve a mention i will mention and recommend.

    love n co was the first jewellery shop we ever stepped in and after that we're like the usual couple we went ring hunting at the common LH, GH, Sookee, etc but nothing beats the service from calvin and ultimately my bf still went back to buy from him despite the price being steeper abit than LH,GH, etc as we really like the service coz he gave us so much information like the difference btw the certs, etc + his little drawings on how light reflects in a perfect diamond... all these are very informative for couples that do not know much about diamonds... even after we left without buying anything he's still all smiles and chirpy.

    there was once we went LH to check out the rings, the salesgirl asked us... "you don't want to buy now meh?" i'm like "hello... this is not buying carrots leh?" then when we left the salesgirl didn't even bother to take a 2nd look at us... it's little things and details that matters to us.

    but not all LH salesperson are like that.. there's one sales person called Eleanor from Bugis Branch that is very sincere too... but we prefer love n co's design.

    anyway back to love n co... he's not pushy, very sincere, detailed and knowlegeable about diamonds and takes a soft approach to dealing with us and since he's around the same age as us he understand what we are looking for, ie cheap, good and big. wahahah....

    according to my bf, he went to look for him 5 times before finally deciding to buy and we're also deciding to get our wedding band there.

    after so much said my ring is:

    0.58 carat
    G colour
    VS1
    Excellent Cut
    LVC Signatori with love shaped claw and side diamonds
    Cost i think is about $5.6k

    ps: although it's only a 0.58 but looks like 0.60~0.70 due to the higher setting and my small finger. so a tip for guys out there proposing, if your gals have small fingers, don't have to get too big.. haha.. but of coz from a girl POV, the bigger the better :D!!!

    enjoy your rings hunting peeps.

    Hi ntus about u,
    I felt the same with love&co when i was shopping for the proposal ring. somehow their staff are very well-versed and not pushy, which helps guys like me to take my time and think.

    I think i visited the store a few times too before deciding to get the LVC Signatori ring. My fiance still loves her ring. If she's happy, I'm doubly happy!

    How does love & co compare to others like goldheart? Design, quality or just the brand?
  33. freek

    freek New Member

    Hey Folks, perhaps you can check out on Brilliant Rose.
    So far i think they are the ones who have the best setting and their diamonds looks big and bright than their actual size due to their cutting.
    I got my proposal ring from there too.

    You should check out private jewellers like larry jewellery, Vivo Diamonds, etc. These jewellers usually offer higher quality diamonds for better value for money.

    Cheapest ard 1.5k per pair. Highest should be the promise signature WBs. Depending on the diamonds, it ranges ard from 3.5k to 6k per pair.
