Wait till you get the ring. Ask for tehe receipt telling him you need if for insurance and then show him the discrepencies. Go in together to the shop.

Also, are you sure its not white 14K gold and how do you know its available for so cheap on overstock? Are you sure of the stone, cut, clarity etc?

How do you know?? Couldn’t the $25 one just be a “knock off”?

OH MY GOSH ! HON ! This is not something to keep from your fiance ! This is not a case of “I don’t like my ring, honey”. I think he would be more pissed if you left his wallet short of the 2 grand ! Tell him and then together call the proper authorities and congrats on the engagement ! That’s all that will matter after this is all settled !

Good luck !!!

EDIT ! OOPS you weren’t supposed to see it yet ? So wait till he proposes and then do the above !

Maybe the one on overstock is just similar.  I doubt a chain is ripping you off that much.

Maybe the jewel quality is different?

How do you know it’s not a diamond?

ETA can you post a pic of the Overstock one?

@ringaling: How do you know what the guy at the store said if you don’t “know” that he got the diamond yet?

Tell him now. It’s not a matter of whether or not you like it. It’s a matter of whether or not the man you love was SCAMMED. Tell him immediately if you think it’s fake. He may be upset that you peeked, but I would say it’s worth it.

If it’s a diamond yours then I am certain the ring on overstock is NOT the exact same thing. Is he paying for a brand; Tacori, Scot Kay, etc? How, with just looking, can you be certain of the metal? What “tests” have you run? I’m not saying people don’t get upchaged by 100$ here and there, but THOUSANDS…by a large, well known chain..?

 

ETA: I’m assuming since it’s an e-ring it has a dimaond, that’s not fair. I aplogize in advance for assuming that. Does it have any sort of stone?

Did you look for markings inside the ring? All jewelry must be marked.

925 = silver

10K, 14K, 18K = gold
