Copy a Tiffany & Co Setting For Less
The Tiffany Setting engagement ring is one of the most popular and recognized in the world. Created by Charles Lewis Tiffany, the purpose behind the design was to elevate the diamond above the band to showcase its beauty as opposed to popular settings of the time which obscured the diamond beneath heavy metal settings. The six thin prongs are meant to hold the diamond securely in place and the “knife edge” setting is designed to draw the eye towards the center diamond.

- Shape – Ever wonder why the round diamond shape is so popular? It’s the cut with the most sparkle due to the way light is refracted through its facets. So here, I’m choosing Round.
- Color – At Tiffany & Co. the lowest color grade they sell is a near colorless “I”. So to replicate that Tiffany sparkle I’ll pick “I” as well and a slightly more colorless “H” grade. You could even pick a “J” diamond which is also considered near colorless and would come with a slightly lower price tag.
- Cut – James Allen has their own proprietary cut for maximum sparkle and they call this their “True Hearts” cut. Pick this for a diamond which goes a step above the Ideal cut for maximum sparkle, symmetry and clarity and shape.
- Polish and Symmetry – If you opt for an Ideal cut, scroll down to the “Advanced Options” area on the search tab and click. Then, scroll over to Polish and Symmetry and be sure to choose “Excellent” on each. This will ensure the diamond you are picking has those qualities which Tiffany & Co gemologists hold so dear, and do make the difference when you’re going for a truly high-end look.
