Ive had it since October but I rarely wear it. I bought it to see the size of diamond on my hand. Here is the link.

Wink is fantastic, can’t say enough nice things about his CZs. However, I think he only works with 14 and higher karat gold, which may not be in her budget.

I like e14k.com  They have really good CZs.  I have a ring from them and everyone believes it’s a diamond, even my diamond expert!  You can get sterling silver or 14k (more expensive though).

I really like the Berricle brand – I have bought some from Amazon for RHRs and they’re nice quality and have a ton of different designs.

Wink CZs are gorgeous! If she wants a wink CZ, she could get a sterling silver setting and have it set with a Wink CZ, though that may run a bit over budget once you get the setting, buy the stone and pay the setting fee. IMO it would be worth it.

Also, Berricle has lots of lovely rings, I have read so many good things aout Berricle rings. I have earrings and pendants from Berricle, and they are very nice.

I’d recommend Berricle or HSN Absolute for that budget.

Wink also will work with silver if you just email him – some ladies on the BTD boards have had Berricle settings sent to Wink and he’ll pop out the center stone and put in a Wink CZ.

I had a different experience with E14k than the poster who recommends them. I used them to order a setting because I wanted to pay as little as possible for a gold setting and I wanted a simple, six prong solitaire. E14k seemed to fit the bill for that. However, the customer service I recieved was bad. I was shocked after reading some rave reviews. I called E14k before purchasing to confirm that the head on my ring would fit a 10mm stone, because their site lists the head sizes in “carat sizes” rather than mm. The guy tersely told me what “carat size” to order for a 10mm stone. Later that day I emailed just so I could have written confirmation of what size head to order – and the guy emailed me back saying “I believe this was discussed over the phone”. That’s it! He didn’t even answer my question. So I had to wing it pretty much – luckily my memory from the phone call was correct.

So I ordered the setting and waited some time without hearing ANYTHING from E14k about the progress of the setting or when it would be shipped. I reluctantly called again and the guy was kind of rude and said it had already been shipped days ago. Well, that was news to me since I had recieved no reciept, no tracking info, no shipping confirmation, no indication at all that it had been sent. It was in the mailbox when I checked, looking worse for the wear. I had to have my local jeweler correct the positioning of the head and replate the whole ring because the work on it was so poor and there were black marks on the metal. When I emailed E14k about my dissatisfaction, the guy didn’t really care and just claimed he would’ve fixed it, but after the poor communication and customer service it was a no-brainer to just pay the extra cash and have the master jeweler at my local place fix it up. Too bad because I’d have used E14k again for a pair of studs if my experience had been good. The setting ended up looking pretty nice in the end, but overall I got what I paid for. Here’s the finished right hand ring, set with a Wink OEC.

We got a white sapphire set in sterling silver yor $100 at Helzberg as an alternative ring. It’s beautiful and noone knows the difference. Plus it being an actual stone makes me more comfortable if I hit it or something. Sorry for the large bad picture haha

I second a sapphire from Helzberg as I’ve seen some very pretty ones in person (and I’m not usually one to recommend chain jewelry stores).

Here’s a few I found:

Berricle’s rings are also really good quality.  She has lots of options.

@ccantics:  Beautiful. Seeing rings like yours makes me feel stupid that FI spent a few thousand. I could so rock that happily, forever (if it would last that long).
