Try going to Ross Simons website. They are a jeweler in Rhode Island. I bought my sterling silver from them and also bought a man's wedding ring from them, after pricing it locally, and they were much cheaper.
You can choose your stone by size, price, and quality and choose your setting. As other's have said, there's a huge mark up on jewelry, and Jared, although I've bought things there, is not a place to find a bargain.

Default Just a thought....

anyway, although i have the cash, i really don't want to spend too much cuase i know that she would much rather us spending the extra money on a nice vacation to an exotic place....(or maybe i'm wrong??)

i've set a budget of 1500 and some may say that's too little....but i honestly can't bring myself to spend too much on a ring! (the ring is just a symbol....there are other things that matter more....right?)

ok, back to the ring.
i've decided on one of these two rings:

1: 5/8 CT, round, H-I, near colorless in a simple white gold setting: $1399

OR

2. 1/2 CT, Princess, H-I, near colorless in the same ring as option 1 : $900


thoughts?
When my hubby and I married, we had decided we wanted matching rings. Since we both had Celtic roots in our backgrounds, we ultimately decided to get Celtic bands. We ordered them online from a designer in Wales, they are 18kt. pure gold, with an intricate detail, and are exactly what we had in mind. We looked at a couple of jewelery chains and they had nothing we were interested in, and the prices were ridiculous. The diamonds you have picked out are not huge and the prices you mention are not horrible, but it boils down to your personal choice. The ones we have are special to us, are unique ( I have never seen anything even close to them) AND, they do offer matching diamond engagement rings if you are interested (I have been dropping hints that I would like the matching band for myself on our next anniversary). I can send you the link to the place we used - they did an excellent job and the prices were outstanding. I wish you both the best, and many years of happiness and love to you.
