I don’t really have much advice on how to bring it up… Fiance and I had a pretty open conversation about rings and what I wanted/didn’t want.  I basically chose the rough setting and he chose the shape and size of the center stone.  At this point, it already isn’t a surprise!  You just need to weigh the value of a total surprise against getting what you want.  I decided that since I would wear the ring forever, it was worth forgoing a bit of the total surprise.

And, I’m not gonna lie, I would be hesitate about spending $5k on something from a guy in Indonosia that I had never met.  I tend to be more trusting of local jewellers or even reputable online retailers, where you have the option to return after having the ring appraised.

I have a round halo setting and my ruby center stone is the equivalent size of about 1 ct.  I wear a size 5.25.

I don’t have that style ring so I can’t post on that.  However, I did tons of research on diamonds to help Fiance (men are so clueless) and I know round stones are quite expensive, since the way they are cut adds sparkle thats obviously highly desired.  My ring came from NYC diamond district since I wanted here in philly was just more than Fiance wanted to spend.  I don’t know where your located nor your man’s budget but the jeweler my ring came from sells very well cut and gia graded round 1.5 stones for 4-5k, the setting is an additional cost.

Maybe you should go “window shopping”?

I agree with pp about being a little hesitant.  You’ve never met the guy, so definitely do some background checking.

Mine is a 1.25 carat center stone (I wear a size 5.25 ring) – but it’s a “hearts on fire”, which is definitely not cost effective.  For some reason, my Fiance fell in love with it when he looked at it under a microscope.  People always think it’s way bigger than it is.  I love it!

Good luck and congrats!!

I don’t know your BF’s financial situation but no wonder he is worried how he is ever going to afford your Ering. Thats a lot of money for some people!

Maybe go for something smaller with the idea that you guys will upgrade down the road.

I would def take the pressure of him!

And as for the Indonesia guy? Unless he is local and you can go to see the merchandise, please don’t do it!!

Buying diamonds online significantly decreases their price. Diamonds are pretty standard – and most online places have amazing return policies.  

Also, have you considered moissanite?  You can get a huge rock that LOOKS like diamond, but won’t cost a lot.  it’s beautiful. Try

Some of the best diamonds online sites are (i got my e-ring from adiamor) and a cheaper online place where they have more I1 stones is (i am getting my wedding eternity ring on here). 

Buying an engagement ring CAN be a lot of money.  Moissanite, and buying online, can significantly decrease the price.

This is the worst quality photo ever. I’m sorry! I hope it helps anyway. It’s a 1.5 carat center on a size 7 finger.
