We bought an antique ring on eBay. It came set with a 0.1 carat diamond. It wasn’t in great shape but I really, really fell in love with it. It was also under 200, so I figured that worst case if it wouldn’t be fixable or it was fake, it wouldn’t be too big a loss. We had a jeweler repair the ring and set a different diamond into it. That only cost 220, so all together my setting was only 390! I’m going to have the stone the ring came with set into a bracelet. I’m not sure if you would be comfortable with this route, but it worked for us.

 

Good luck hunting! Rubylane and Etsy are other sites I would recommend.

Look in your area for independent jewelry that specialize in antique/estate jewelry. That’s where DH got mine. It’s Art Deco, from the 1920’s.

eBay, pawn shops, antique/vintage shops and ruby lane are all great places to look!

Pawn shops are a good place to begin looking.

I got mine off of eBay, there are plenty of places to look though! Search for antique shops around you.
