I just discovered the site IdonowIdont.com from another post on here… I’ve never heard of that before! Anyway, I was wondering… how would you feel if your SO bought your ring from a site like that (or e-bay or craigslist)? I don’t know how I’d feel about it. I mean, there are some amazing deals, but I’m just not sure.
What do you think?

It honestly wouldn’t bother me, as long as he did his homework in making sure he wasn’t scammed. My right hand ring is an estate piece, and I love that it has a history!

I really wouldn’t care less – as long as I loved the ring it wouldn’t matter to me. I’d be proud if I got a good deal! LOL

We sought out something estate. We don’t know a lot about jewelry so we decided craigslist/ebay were not for us for my ring, but my husband’s wedding ring came from ebay for a whopping $38.

If it was what we were looking for and we were comfortable with the authenticity- absolutely ok by me

absolutely not. FI and I are both students and this would potentially would have saved us a lot of money, not to mention it’s better for the environment! who cares if it’s “used”, it’s still a valuable, beautiful piece of jewelry with all the symbolism you want it to have and quite frankly, the earth has been “using” the gold and gems in your “new” ring for millions or billions of years. 😛

As long as he was 100% sure that he got what he paid for, I’d have no problem with it! I’d actually be a little excited at how much money he saved!

i’m much rather him get a good deal and save some money, i never liked the idea of him spending all that money on a ring anyway.

I got my ring from I do Now I dont…. we paid 2200 for a 1 ct round diamond with 3 stones on either side and a band with little diamonds all the way around. It appraised for over $11,000… seriously save the money for the honey moon :o)

Oh and by the way IDoNowIDont isn’t like an Ebay or Craigslist because before your money goes to the seller the ring is held in escrow and appraised by a 3rd party jeweler to make sure the claims the seller made are legit and only THEN does it get sent to you with his full apprasial. The jeweler is IGA certified.

I wouldn’t be mortified, but I would definitely be upset.

JoJo Bananas: can you explain your feelings? i’m curious.

Honestly, I didn’t like the idea at first, but i’m checking out that site, and there ARE some really good deals!! No one has to know where the ring came from, they will all be impressed with the ring though!

To me it would depend on the ring. Is the rock real? Is the ring good quality? Do I like the style? Then, I wouldn’t mind at all!
For the record, my FI bought my ring on black Friday and got a great deal on it. I love my ring and I’m glad he didn’t spend the full price on it. The money spent doesn’t matter to me as much as the man the ring comes with.

I think it would bother me more if he’d spent way too much money just to get a “name” new ring. Mine was purchased at an antique store (it’s circa 1928-1930), which means it was almost definitely owned before. Whether the original owner broke off the engagement, got divorced or simply died is unknown. That doesn’t bother me at all. It’s a beautiful, good quality ring and no one in my lifetime died mining its stone.
