With proposal imminent the Mr. has asked for assistance in finding a ring. He’s not particularly net savvy, so I’m supposed to find a few different trustworthy online places with rings I like, that are within the budget we decided on.
I love the look and colour of blue topaz (my birthstone!), and have recently discovered that there is also such a thing as white topaz which can work for his birthstone (April) which makes me think topaz for the main stones is a clear winner.
With that in mind, I’d love a ring which features two main stones – one blue topaz and one white topaz. He’d prefer if it had some tiny diamonds for extra sparkle, but if a choice between that and awesome metal designs I’d go with the later. We’d like to stay under $500.
This is my fav thus far:
But with one of the hearts white topaz (when you click the image, the website shows one as blue and one as white). There are a few other designs on that site (www.jewelsforme.com) that I like too. I’ve checked out a few others but didn’t find anything I particularly liked: http://www.brilliantearth.com, http://www.gemvera.com, Etsy, and Sears.
Are there any places I’m overlooking? Complicating this is the fact that I am in Canada, so shipping is horrendous. If there’s somewhere here in the great white north that I haven’t found I will be forever in your debt! Amazon is out for that reason, very few places on there will ship here.
Would it be worth checking out local jewelry places? We only have your standard chain “not outside the box” shops plus a couple higher end locally owned shops. I am not a jewelry person so am nearly as clueless as he is about this sort of thing!
Thanks in advance for any help! I’ve already learned so much searching the boards on this topic =D
