a lot of brides here get their rings online. I got mine from Adiamor. Other good ones are Blue Nile, Brilliant Earth, good old gold and more.

I have to recommend Enchanted Diamonds. Their prices are lower than James Allen and Blue Nile and especially Good old Gold, and their customer service is simply awesome.

We bought my engagement ring at James Allen as well! They had the best price for the size of diamond I wanted (between .25 and .50 carats) and the style I wanted (solitaire with an interesting band). Looking at other online stores, I haven’t been able to find a similar style and quality ring at the same price we got my ring. We also just took advantage of their Cyber Monday sale and got 25% off on our wedding rings.

My ring was also purchased at James Allen and I absolutely love it! My fiancé looked around stores and couldn’t find a great deal. He did a lot of research online and came across James Allen. The site is awesome and shows you a 3d image of the diamond, so you can see any flaws. You also have the option of a custom made setting, which is what mine is. I was very skeptical about him buying a ring online but it worked out great! My fiancé got my ring appraised at a local jewelry store and found it was worth about $2,500 more than what he paid for. I definitely recommend James Allen. We will probably get our wedding bands from there as well.

DH got the diamond from Blue Nile, and had it set at a brick and mortar that’s local to our town. He saved so much on taxes (at the time, I’ve heard they’re now taxing online sales from BN) that it was so worth it. My diamond is beautiful, and neither of us have any regrets!!

Multifarious5:  My FI bought my ring online through Platnium Jewelers. Like you said, you can find beautiful rings at great prices online. Yeah, it takes work, but if quality and price are of importance, work will be done to find it. My ring was supoer cheap and it was appraised for wayyyyyyyy way more than what we bought it for. 

Very happy to hear you had a great experience online and at James Allen. I heard many great things about the company. Hope you both get your amazing honeymoon now!!
