I’m considering suggesting the pawn shop to SO next time we go ring shopping. Please post a pick of your pawn shop ring (preferably diamond, but any others too), along with the stats and price if you don’t mind. I’m trying to get an idea of how much more bang we can get for our buck! Thanks!

@southern_sweetheart91: It’s only been an hour. Give it some time. I’m sure the majority of the people here bought their rings new, so asking for something unconventional may take some time to get a response.

@southern_sweetheart91: My ring came from a pawn shop ($125 maybe?) but we put a 1/2c Moissy on it for our 2 year anniversary.

well I didn’t get my ring from a pawn shop, although I always wanted to peek, I got mine off of Craigslist, if that counts. I absolutely think everyone should look at pre owned rings before going to a jewelry store bc of the huge markups. I got my ring for half the price it was bought for 6 months ago and it was still in new condition. Barely worn. I paid in cash and dont have a ring payment to worry about :)I am soo so happy we gave the preowned option a chance bc I got my dream ring 🙂

Got mine from the pawn shop I work at, 1.75 ctw, 14k white gold. Size 6 finger. Paid $350 for the ring and $80 for the circa 1940’s wedding band. Absolutely beautiful sparkly diamonds!
ETA. Pictures were taken from iPad. Not the best quality

Ebay…..25 ct in 14 ct for 103.00 (winning bid) she is adorable…a little sliver of sparkle when I feel like being very “dainty” and modest. The diamond is actually very white and sparkly 🙂

And here she is paired with a little gold chevron ring I have had for years:

Not a diamond. But NotFroofy gave me a ring (top one in photo) that she inherited from her grandmother back in Wales. She really wanted a matching one. However, the one she gave me was 22 karat gold, which is almost unknown in this country. So I went on eBay UK and found her one from the same era. It has the same width and color but is a bit thicker. But they were a close enough match to make NotFroofy happy, which was the point.

@MrsLuca: That is such a pretty and feminine ring.
