Oh wow. You have a sweet FI. Can you come up with a plan to offset your impact on the environment if you allow him to pick out a ring for you? Or maybe you FI could ask your family for permission to use your grandma’s ring? That way it wouldn’t seem as if you were asking but he was trying to honor the entire family and yours. The last idea I have is to buy a used one. It could be recycling…in a way. Best wishes to you.

That is really sweet of your FI. If it would make him happy, and you’ve given in, you might try looking at locally owned jewelry stores. We went to one that has some extremely nice jewelry that is beyond our means, and I thought we’d never find anything. I did end up finding an e-ring there that I liked, that wasn’t expensive, and was my style. It’s a gemstone, but not a diamond. I don’t know much about ethical sourcing of other gemstones or metals, etc. Still, it was a local store, which I liked.

Have you checked out Turtle Love Co.? It’s online but describes itself as “artisan/indie/eco.” http://www.turtleloveco.com/Articles.asp?ID=153
