Both moissianteco.com and ashadiamonds.com offer layaway.  They are the same company but I can say I had a good experience with ad.com.  Asha is a diamond simulant with a cz core and a diamond coating.  Moissiante is an alternative stone.  Both are beautiful.  There have been some negative reviews but overall most people seem happy.  WWW.pompeii3.com sells diamonds also offers layaway but I have no personal experience with them.  For the most part the few reviews I’ve seen seem positive but just research the Cs and stats you want.

I’ve noticed that some Etsy sellers also offer layaway options, so that might be something else to check out

Yes! Contact Erica or Grace at Jewels by Erica Grace! A lot of items on consignment, too, so they’re for great second hand prices.. And, if I recall correctly, they let you bargain a bit sometimes 🙂 they offer a 3 mos layaway but can do longer if you talk To them about it.

Just chiming in about moissaniteco.com – although we didn’t do layaway, I know that’s an option for non-sale items, as NovaRising said, and I could not be happier with my ring and their service. I also just bought my eternity wedding band from there and specifically wanted moissanite. Good luck!

@avamacbeth:  why not start saving for it in your own account? I think I don’t understand layaway?

@avamacbeth:  JbEG is able to source Moissy and ASHAs for you. Just FYI.

@avamacbeth:  It took a little while to grow on me too, then I became obsessed with researching it, and now I am absolutely in love with the stone (and I’ve had my e-ring for nearly two years).

Moissanite/Asha/CZ are pretty, but would you be ok with a man made simulant for your engagement ring? Lots of girls on the ‘bee have them and like them. Lots of bling for the buck.
With your budget, you could also have a beautiful albeit smaller genuine billion year old, from the earth diamond. It sounds like a real diamond is what you really want.  Of course real gemstones are an option too, such as sapphire, topaz etc.

There are local jewelry stores that will allow one to make payments towards a ring. I also found: Joy jewelers online that say they  have “layaway” and allow you to design your own engagement ring. You’d have to research a bit to find out more about their reputation. They offer certified diamonds and settings separately and seem to offer what you’re looking for within your budget. http://designyourown.joyjewelers.com/Configurators/Engagementring/?mode=settingfirst

Good luck and keep us posted. 🙂

If you want diamonds and are willing to do estate pieces, you can find some good deals and many dealers on ETSY are willing ot do Layaway. I have seen several vendors.  I purchased my husband’s diamond wedding band from this dealer, and while I didnt do layaway, I told her I had a budget and loved the ring for him and she knocked close to $75 on the ring. She also takes layaway and will take reasonable offers on her items.

You have a very reasonable budget, and if you are willing to stay around .5ct you can definitely find an awesome natural diamond option. If there’s any chance that you’d be able to save up beforehand (vs. doing layaway) you can definitely find amazing deals by going the preowned route – just keep an eye on loupetroop and diamondbistro.
