The .03ct is TINY, as is the .05. If having the brand isn't vital, get one through like blue nile or something that's about .1 or .15ct. We can help you pick out a stone.

How much is the 1CT from Blue Nile?
1ct is not the same is .1 ct which is what I suggested. The period in the front is very important.

Further there isn't a set price, you select a stone. And it appears they don't go lower than about a .25 stone (1/4 ct)

But you could have it in gold for like $700. With a MUCH bigger stone.

Whoever you go with I'd splurge for a .20 if you want some nice sparkly impact! :smile:

I have a Tiffany's one and LOVE it though! :smile:

Interesting. Thanks for asking this question. I was wondering the same thing. I had this
http://www.tiffany.ca/Shopping/Item...7465-r+501323338+501288191-x+-n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+

and then exchanged it for the 0.07 size DBTY. It looked nice in the store but when I brought it home, under natural light it is very underwhelming. I'm still searching for my perfect everyday piece.

The toggle necklace is nice but I don't think it's everyday. I think the Bean or the Open Heart necklace both by Elsa Peretti is more everyday to me. I have them both and love them dearly. I also have the Elsa Peretti "L" pendant with diamonds in sterling silver. The L is my darling son's initial and darling hubby got it for me when he was born. You could consider getting a letter pendant that has your initial or someone significant in your life.


I do like the DBTY necklace. I don't have it but I also think it might be too small. Can't remember if the platinum DBTY comes with bigger stones. If you do the math, a little tiny diamond on a silver necklace really isn't worth it.

Diamond by the Yard in silver isn't worth getting, imo. The setting isn't as delicate as the same design in gold or platinum. I have a T&Co. DBY necklace in yellow gold with .25ct diamond and this is about the minimum size I would consider. I initially received .1ct DBY in plat. It was so small i could not see the sparkle on my neck.

I think in small sizes T&Co. and other online jewelry stores with comparable quality are similar in price. The price gap increases as the diamond size gets bigger.
I saw many people buy from brian gavin diamonds, for example.
Maybe this could help you compare prices, along with other stores.

Total thread hijack, sorry. I returned the DBTY and got this
http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Ite...+-r+-x+-n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+Bead+bracelet&search=1
And this
http://www.tiffany.ca/Shopping/Item...323338+501432133+501288196-x+-n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+

But I'm 35 and while I like the necklace I'm worried it might be too young. I was thinking of getting this to go with my blue enamel key
http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Ite...01323338-x+-n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+Twist+key&search=1

They had them paired in the display case and it was pretty cute.

Thanks for everyone's feedback! I have decided not to get it.. I'll probably be getting something similar to the Tiffanys metro heart necklace instead.

Those are great pieces you got. I always had my eye on the Tiffanys beaded charm bracelet. Is it a good piece that you recommend?
