To come up with our aggregate rating for each of our jewelers we scan through reviews from the most important sites to make sure we get a fair and balanced opinion. We also read through professional reviews to see what the experts have to say.
Blue Nile has a TON of reviews, especially from wedding industry sites like wedding wire and the knot where Blue Nile scores 4.7 and 5 out of 5 respectively. Blue Nile has over 55 hundred reviews on Google with an average rating of 4.8 – generally speaking this is in line with the top online jewelers we show on our site. Yelp and Trustpilot round out the review sites we look at, but neither has a significant number of reviews for Blue Nile – it seems like most of their reviews exist elsewhere.
For professional review sites, we looked at the review done by diamonds.pro as well as a few other professional sites. Diamonds.pro rated Blue Nile a 4.5 out of 5 stars and highlighted the online giant’s ability to offer low prices with significant inventory.
After weighing all of the reviews we give Blue Nile an overall rating of 4.72 out of 5 points. This is one of the highest overall ratings we’ve ever given, and it’s easy to see why people love Blue Nile so much. They have a massive selection of diamonds and their prices are among the lowest in the industry. They also offer pretty much every perk you can imagine, including free expedited shipping, price matching, and a diamond upgrade program.
When it comes to finding the perfect diamond from Blue Nile, we offer some great tools to help you sift through the noise. StoneAlgo only shows diamonds with real images from the top sites like Blue Nile, and you can see our custom ratings like match rating, cut quality, and savings – showing you how underpriced a diamond is compared to similar diamonds.
You can even track the price of any specific diamond over time to see if the dealer has been lowering the price, or if it’s a new diamond that just hit the market. You can even search for diamonds you’ve found elsewhere using nothing but a GIA number to see if one of the top online jewelers carries it for less. We also provide custom write-ups on over 500,000 diamonds so you know exactly what you’re buying.

One of my favorite features on Blue Nile’s site is their recently purchased engagement rings page. It’s an easy way to see how different color diamonds will look once placed in a specific setting. Want to see how a J color diamond looks in a rose gold setting? Filter by rose gold and round shape, open up a few of the diamonds and boom – you’ve got it. Want to see what people with a similar budget have been buying recently? Just run a search and the diamonds are automatically filtered by how recently they were purchased.
One thing I will note is that the far right filter setting automatically shows you the newest diamonds whether its set to “newest”, “featured”, “best sellers” or “highest rated” so you can see what’s trending easily. You can also set a price range and sort by “price: low to high” to see rings in ascending price order. If you and your significant other are shopping together this is a great way to narrow down the field and evaluate different styles side by side.
