Definitely check Etsy! Mine’s a 1ct equiv moissanite (not sure if you’re open to that) and was under your budget 🙂

@jessjlstar: Obsessories Studios but it looks like she’s on vacation… In any case, we looked for the ring together and just kept searching “vintage moissanite” and “Celtic moissanite” and finally found this one. Plus, many sellers are willing to customize things a bit if you see something you love, but want a few potential changes!

If you’re open to pre-owned, this was an ebay find, and $250 below your budget:

It’s 0.52ct princess cut diamond, white gold, G colour, VVS1 clarity.

@jessjlstar:  Mine is an estate ring, and I LOVE it.  No clue who had it before me.  I like to imagine it was a couple who had a happy marriage of 80 years. 🙂  It’s over your budget, but wanted to encourage you to give used rings a chance! 🙂

@jessjlstar:  You can easily do a moissy for a carat or so right under 500$.  I have a 14k white gold tiffany-repro setting classic solitaire 1 carat moissy that I paid like 450 for.  It’s PERFECTION.  And depending on where you get it, FI could break it into an easy-pay agreement!

I have to put a word in for estate / preowned. I think you could have a lot of fun searching and find a really great ring. Those are some of my favorites on these boards and I look at a lot of rings, lol.

@jessjlstar:  Have you looked into Moissanite at all? It really is a beautiful stone. Check out Moissaniteco.com or check around Etsy.
