Hi I'm looking to purchase a nice engagement ring in New York City with a budget of $4,000. I'm looking for a nice place where I can view different rings and choose whichever "speaks" to me. Problem is I have no idea where to start. A little direction or advise would be much appreciated.

What cut, size, and quality is the stone? Or are you looking to purchase that as well?

$4000 leaves you with a lot of options if you already have the stone.

No idea I want to look for myself and pick what feels right. Nothing too flashy that will attract every mugger for a hundred miles. She not a flashy woman who seeks attention from everyone around her. Something "warm"? Not sure how to explain it. That's why I want to find a place with variety so I can go and look.

Just understould what you meant. No I don't already have a stone. Although I am open to buying a stone seperately and placing it on a ring.

Do you have a Jared store around you? Sometimes they have a stone or two that is significantly cheaper than the rest in its size class, and not necessarily bad in color, cut, or clarity. The saleslady explained why those individual stones are so cheap; it has something to do with the way they order from the wholesaler, I think.

Here's a link that should help and remember you can bargain on the price.

First, read up on the diamond trade. Next, go to pawn shops. I'm not kidding.
