My SO convinced me to take a look at engagement rings with him at some point over the next couple of weeks. The problem is, we’ll be looking in NYC – and I wouldn’t be comfortable with him spending more than $1,500 (or ideally, less than $1,000).
I don’t want a diamond – maybe a sapphire or an amethyst or something – so I’m 100% certain this is achievable. I’m just not so sure there’ll be much for us to look at in New York, and even though he’s a local, he hasn’t a clue about jewellery (and honestly, neither do I). I know NYC can be a pricey city, but it’s also pretty big, so I’m assuming there has to be something.
Could some kind and helpful clued-in ladies recommend me any shops that might cater for my requirements?
Also, I put this in the New York City board. No idea if it’s better placed in rings.

Try Little King in Soho – they do all kinds of custom design rings and can work with budgets of most kinds. I’m getting my fiance’s wedding band there.
Also, check out Dana Walden – they’re a husband/wife team and very good friends of my friend. I think they also do custom designs and offer a wide array of unique affordable rings. If you look through the site they have a lot of examples. http://www.danawaldenjewelry.com

My jeweler is Wendy Gandola at Charlie G Designs/Millman Jewellers in the diamond district 478 Fifth Ave at 47th street. She has an amazing eye and will spend lots of time with you! She did my engagement ring setting and my wedding band. My mom liked the work so much she had Wendy reset her engagement ring and that came out absolutely stunning!
