I've never bought jewelry from Blue Nile, but I bought a flask for an ex and had it engraved with his initials. I had a great experience with them. The item was well-made, the engraving looked good, and it was shipped quickly.

Wow, I didn't know they sold flasks! I was referring to diamond experiences (should've specified that! :blush:) but it's good to hear that they have awesome customer service all around! :tup:

I've bought 2 things from blue nile... a pair of small diamond studs & a pair of pearl/diamond studs... the simple diamonds were heads & tails above the quality of comparably priced studs you might find at regular mall stores... the pearls were okay, but I wasn't omg-thrilled.

The shipping was free & fast, and amex gave me a code to use for 10% off.

I would shop with them again.

i think there was a thread about this before, and i responded in taht one. but...i'll just respond again here. i bought some pearls and some other things for mothers day for my mom and grandma and they LOVED it. they came in very nice jewerly boxes, arrived quickly. but i've never bought any diamonds from there. me and my bf were going to buy the diamonds for my promise ring individually and had them get mounted by a jeweler but we wanted my ring quick so we bought it from a mall jeweler. BAD CHOICE! because it was so overpriced. i think we were a little naive 3 years ago. we would have so taken the bluenile route and purchased the diamonds individually. so much cheaper!

Great - my husband has bought me several gemstone and pearl & diamond pieces from Blue Nile, and everyone thinkgs my tahitian pearls are from Mikimoto - the quality and service are excellent.

I have never bought anything there since I am skeptical of buying diamonds without seeing it "in person". Has anyone bought anything from Blue Nile before? Is it good?:smile:

I like them but they are way overpriced. You can get the same or better quality diamonds at other online vendors for much less

I don't know about this though, i did my research at Pricescope vendors and some BN stones of similar grade can be much less. Of course, beauty is not entirely judged by GIA numbers.
