My wedding is approaching fast (October) and we are getting ready to purchase the wedding ring, we want to get it early due to our tax returns coming in this week.

We are looking for a very basic, and affordable ring. (~$600).

We went to a few places around the malls and didn't really see much we liked, she wants a simple solitare ring probably about 1/2ct. She works with kids and doesn't want anything too flashy or sticks out too much.

Any ideas? We checked Shane Company, but their cheapest ring was about $1000.

I think Jared's has very nice jewelry and they have a variety of price ranges. I think you could get a nice ring for $600.

Congratulations! If she's a real practical gal, I would look at some pawn shops. You'll get more for your money.

We got ours at The Gemsetter, in West Chandler. All of the stuff at the mall is overpriced junk. This place is a privately owned non-chain, and you get personalized treatment. You've probably heard "Eric" on 620 KTAR as they sometimes do broadcasts from there. He's the one that helped us out. Our ring was substantially more than $600, but they were well priced on everything, so I would go in and see what they can do for you for $600.

Try online at bluenile.com - they seem to have good prices and you can filter by color and clarity.

Looks like another case of a fool and his money are soon parted (Tax return.)

But then a fool that doesn't buy the right ring could have a major part in the relationship.

What to do, what to do? For one congratulations on the up coming wedding. Heres to a long and prosperous marriage. I have heard great things about Jared. I see the commercials anyway.

Next on the list: Give yourself an automatic raise without talking to your boss. The average person pays $2,400 a year more than they need to in taxes. And the government holds this money interest free and returns it to you each year after you do your taxes. I don't have a clue what your federal check will look like, but you can go to the IRS website and use one of their calculators and instead of waiting for that money to arive, allready have it all year long in the form of an increase to your paycheck. Lucky you.
