Yay!!! We only went to one store here because that’s all that carried the kind I wanted and gave deals on diamonds.  I would start at the biggest one first.  πŸ™‚  I would for sure take him to the stores you like and try on what you tried on.  See if he likes the same styles.  That’s what we did.  I tried on like everything in the store and we picked what looked best on my hand together, and that was as special to me as it being a surprise.

We went to only 2 stores on Jeweler’s Row here in Chicago when we picked out my ring. We went to the long-standing independent jeweler first (who we researched and found out had great deals and great reviews). After seeing all that they could do for us in terms of making my ring customized to exactly how I wanted it, we went to our second appointment at a more upscale, trendy independent jeweler. The rings were half the size (in terms of amount of metal used) as the other jeweler, and they quoted double the price! It was insane, and we obviously knew where to get the ring.

But I have to add, definitley go to Costco too! I go there when I’m at home in the suburbs with my mom and can’t help myself from stopping at the jewlery case for a few mintues to browse what’s there!! From what I’ve seen, they’re awesome deals for completed rings.

Yay! You should go back to stores that you styles that you like so that he gets an idea.. My boyfriend and I went to 3 stores “just to look” and get info..by the 3rd store we decided to go custom, we’ve designed the ring just waiting for it to be finished and for bf to ask πŸ™‚ So “just looking” can turn into buying sooner than you think πŸ™‚
