Engagement Ring Help

Unread postby decipha » Mon Jul 23, 2018 8:23 pm

anyone have any insight on diamond engagement rings?

i know nothing about them and dont wish to learn. Just looking for the best possible deal. For example Id rather spend $4g on a ring worth $10g rather than spend $3g on a ring worth $4g

just figures im throwing out. If i can get a $3g ring for $1200 id prefer that.

money isnt a concern i just dont want to get ripped cuz im ignorant

anyone have any links or suggestions?

she likes princess cut white gold attached a couple examples

i would be forever thankful

Congratulations!

I designed ours and had it hand made, which adds a bit to the price. 3/4 carat princess cut good quality (not flawless) diamond. Ring is palladium so pure metal and can be easily polished. About the same price as white gold. White gold is rhodium plated which wears off but can get redone. Every year according to the jewelers but probably that often is overkill. Palladium needs more constant polishing but easy to manage and cheap. Cost about US$4.5K. Worth every cent.

I just went through this last year, and did a lot of research. I ended up going through www.adiamor.com. Picked out which band she wanted, and which diamond (balancing the 4 C's of diamonds for your budget, google it) and I found that I got a pretty good value. For the price I paid, I found that my buddies that went to local places were paying 30% or more for an equivalent ring. Also, their service and communication was excellent, they overnight the ring in a very nice looking box. I ended up going back there for the matching wedding bands as well. Whatever you do don't go through zales, jareds, etc. High price for low quality ring (for the people that don't do their research and just want a quick buy). Let me know if I can help you anymore with it, this is the least I can do for the tuning help!
