Danhov Engagement Rings Review – A Look at the Exquisitive

For couples looking for unique wedding ring designs that not only symbolizes their love but also want to make a fashion statement, a Danhov engagement ring might just be what you are looking for.

Danhov is an acclaimed jewelry design company based in Los Angeles that has won numerous awards for their inspirational ring designs. Jack Hovsepian, the man behind this prestigious line of luxury products, is an engineer turned jewelry designer. 

From a young age, Jack Hovsepian had been influenced by his dad who runs a haute couture fashion business. His iconic ring designs often invoke passion and stir the imagination of the viewer’s mind.

In 2011, the JCK Jeweler’s Choice Awards was handed out to their Abbraccio designs that featured swirly shanks. This collection of handmade rings has specially created shanks which embraced the center stone.

A Quick Danhov Review And Overview

With each Danhov ring being hand-made, the designs have intricate details such that each created design is unique. Unlike traditional rings made from cast molds, the limitations placed on Danhov’s rings are only as far as the creativity of the mind goes.

What Are The Other Aspects For Consideration?

Truth be told, designer rings often come with a higher price tag to them. For budget conscious people, you will find that these rings don’t come cheap and are probably not suitable for you. Also, beauty is a very subjective opinion that varies for different people.

Clearly, Danhov’s rings spot a bold appearance that strays away from the traditional appearances. If you (or your wife) have a more conservative approach to fashion, you might want to reconsider your options. A mainstream ring will probably satisfy your needs and save you money.

However, if you are looking for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind look in your diamond engagement ring, Danhov might just be your answer to finding the perfect setting for your special someone.

    Hi Paul, love your blog and thanks for the free download. I’m a fan of Danhov’s designs and I particularly love their tension ring settings. The swirly AE100 design is also one of my top favorites.

    Let me start off by saying although I have been doing research for a while, your site definitely tops all others. It is very informative with a humble and honest approach that helps buyers on a budget like myself look for the best bang for your buck diamond.

    I’m hoping you can help shed some light/provide some guidance for me in my indecisiveness. After some initial research, I headed out to a few jewelry stores (Asian mom and pop stores) that were recommended by my close friends. I told myself let’s start off with budget of 14-16k and see what we can find. Of course like everyone else, I wanted the best diamond for what my money can get.

    My original specs that I had in mind were…Color: D-F, Clarity: VVS1-VS1, Cut: Round, Carat: 1.2-1.35, Triple X, No Fluorescence, GIA certified, Table: 56-59, Depth 60.5-62.5, imperfections on the edges (especially no clouds).

    Upon talking to my GF about it (I had to ruin the surprise so I wouldn’t get a diamond that she would not be happy with), we came to a compromise. She does prefer a bigger diamond and is willing to sacrifice the clarity and color as long as it shines brightly and the imperfections are not visible to the naked eye.

    The NEW specs that we have in mind are as follow…Color: D-F, Clarity: VS1 – SI1, Cut: Round, Carat: 1.7-1.8, Triple X, No Fluorescence, GIA certified, Table: 56-59, Depth 60.5-62.5, imperfections on the edges (especially no clouds).


    Store A was able to find a sweet diamond (D, VVS1, 1.33ct, triple X, no fluorescence) for around $13500 and the setting would run around $1500. Unfortunately this gem was snatched up quickly by another buyer plus the size wasn’t what my gf would like.

    Store B was a more high end store that dealt w/ name brand settings such as Danhov, Simon G and Tacori. Also discounts at this location would not be as big. They found a bigger diamond for me (D color, SI2, 1.7ct, triple X, no fluorescence) w/ a Simon G setting ($2500) for around $16500. Unfortunately SI2 shows way too many imperfections, even to the naked eye. I told myself why waste $2500 on a setting when I could invest more of that money in a diamond. I love the Danhov setting that they showed with a 1.6ct triple X SI1 diamond E color. This danhov ring is retailed at a price of $15899 which looked clean to my eyes.

    Store C which is located in Chinatown has a LARGE variety of diamonds. In fact he might be the biggest dealer located there. More than 80% of my friends recommend going here. Setting prices range from 500-1200 which includes the bands for both of us. I’m pretty certain if I haggled enough, the dealer will waive the setting prices if I invest more in the diamond. Unfortunately for this place I do not have any prices I can show you because I would have to go in.

    Store D is also located in Chinatown and they have been proactive with me and my needs. Setting prices will run around 1k and here are some of they diamonds they have quoted me:

    1.67 F VS1 GIA $16400
    1.67 F VS2 GIA $15200
    1.7 F VS2 GIA $16000
    1.8 F VS2 GIA $18000


    After all this diamond shopping and researching, I’m leaning towards going back to store C and D (same plaza) in March/April and cashing my diamond. I feel that store C would probably give me the best deal as my friend is going with me (he bought his diamond there) and I like the Danhov setting they have. Plus he will buy a rolex from store C so we’re hoping that we both get a nice discount. The hardest part for me is finding the right combination to make that diamond pop. I was hoping that maybe you could help offer you take on this and advice?

    Here’s one my jeweler sent me GIA#7246391608 for $16500 and GIA#5182063838 for $16000. Just wanted to get your feedback on these from your own experience.

    Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the diamonds and give you any constructive advice without specific details. A grading report doesn’t tell the entire story: https://beyond4cs.com/buying-diamonds-blind/ but just from the proportions alone, these diamonds already failed my initial selection criteria with their crown angles measurements.

    You would do much better here: https://beyond4cs.com/best-place-to-buy-engagement-ring/

    Also, if you are really interested in buying a Danhov engagement ring, White Flash will probably offer better sales policies and selections than you would get locally. The emphasis here is really on better quality diamonds and not overpaying. Also, you can also get more ideas for swirl wedding ring designs if you look beyond Danhov’s brand.
