@TimeWillCome:  How cheap?  What’s your budget?

Cheapest–regular old CZ.  Not a forever stone.  You can buy this anywhere.

Asha–fancy CZ.  Not a forever stone, but it looks almost exactly like a diamond, and it will last a while.  http://www.ashadiamonds.com/

Moissanite–A fraction of the cost of diamonds, but not the cheapest thing.  This is a forever stone.  http://www.moissaniteco.com

Can you get a white topaz ring in sterling silver?

Also not a forever ring, but you should be able to find one for like $15 on Amazon, and it won’t leave a green ring or break.

Cheap is relative person to person. Can you give a price range? That might help.

@TimeWillCome:  What’s your price range? And do you want a cheaper diamond ring, or a diamond simulant?

@TimeWillCome:  Your link didn’t work.  My set is under $1,000!  $800 for palladium/Moissy 1.25c e-ring and $169 for palladium w-band.

If you don’t mind going use check out estate sales, pawn shops, craiglist, and local jewlers. Me and my SO started to shop around and after one look I knew I had my heart set on a blue diamond. Today we decided to stop in a local jewelry shop and it turns out they sold rings that they gotten estate sales and I was able to find the ring for $360 with taxes and resizing. It was over 10xs less then the price of the rings I been looking at prior.

A lot of bees recommended this website to me for a cheap wedding band

http://www.e-weddingbands.com/

I got my wedding band off of http://www.etsy.com/shop/Pompeii3 – they’re thin but they are very affordable! 

 

I have a gemstone ring. It’s much more affordable and unique. Not sure if you’re open to that but it is a square halo with a round center stone and this ring plus my wedding band is completely in your budget. I got mine done by an LA jeweler

How much are you looking to spend? I found something similar for $1350…cheaper, but only by like $700. I know it sounds crazy, but I like Amazon. I know if I have a problem, they fix it.

What you might also consider is picking out your permanant setting. Find one you love with a gemstone in it. You can always swap out the gemstone for a diamond down the road (not sure if you would consider this).

Here are some other options under $900:
