    @jessjlstar:  What about a diamond simulant such as moissanite? While more expensive than cz, moissanite is very durable, and slightly harder than a genuine sapphire.  It’s really  not all that expensive, it’s the setting that is pricey.  Lots of the larger rings you see on the Bee are actually moissy and many are from:http://www.moissaniteco.com/moissanite-solitaire-rings-1-c-80.html 

     I did a quick search: This one is in a believable size of .66 for only $349 in white gold: 

     

    Round Moissanite 4-Prong Solitaire Ring (2mm)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     Here is one for $489 in white gold. A little larger and more ornate.

    I agree with PPs awesome suggestions… I would also recommend Ebay! I have seen some gorgeous gemstone and diamond rings for sale for a great price (new or pre-owned). The jewelry stores will have amazing sales coming up for the holidays and Valentines day as well…. Good luck, and let us know what you wind up with!

    I absolutely adore my Asha, it’s obviously not permanent but we are on a budget too in a very simular situation! I’m a soccer player at our university. I love my ring, and nobody has ever asked if it was real. It reflects so much more color than this picture shows but I can never get a picture to do it justice!

    I may be a little biased, but I’m also going to recommend lab-created sapphire. Budget friendly and absolutely gorgeous! We got my engagement ring at Zales and I couldn’t have been happier. I’m also really hard on it and it has no scratches or chips whatsoever. It was definitely within your budget!

    @jessjlstar:  I’m either a 4.5 or 4.25, I forget, so I’m a little smaller than you. As for the wedding band, I just rock the gap but mainly because I have a diamond band. Zales was going to remove a little bit of the gold under the halo so that it would sit flush, but then I realized that you wouldn’t be able to see any of the diamonds because it would be hidden under the halo. But if you want a perfect fit it’s totally possible!  πŸ™‚
