@PeachSnapple: Getting ready to purchase this beauty! At $220 it is not only EXACTLY what I have been looking for but it is well within my budget! Courtesy of eBay and the Diamond Zone Chicago.

@PeachSnapple:  My channel set engagement band was from a pawn shop, and I had a 1/2 carat moissanite put on it.  The stone that came on it was tiiiiiiinnnnnnyyy.

I got my band from a store on Ebay for ~$200. It’s an antique white gold vine with little itty bitty diamonds throughout. I love it!

@PeachSnapple:  I put it in a “safe place” somewhere and haven’t seen it in years.  Seriously, it’s so small.  But I do need to find it!

My engagement ring came from http://www.rubylane.com, an online vintage/antique forum. The wedding bands came from amazon (less than $500 for both, and mine appraised at double what we paid for it).

@PeachSnapple:  I bought a stand-in for the job I have which is CZ and silver and a tungsten wedding band. I bought it because my ring got banged up all day with cat cans and it allowed me to not worry about my own real ring while I went to the gym next door. If something weird  happened that someone came to rob the store I would gladly hand over my CZ stand it.

When I have to be in a not safe neighborhood I just wear the tungsten band.  I feel weird even wearing the CZ because chances are something can hurt me for that stupid thing. If I get caught in a bad neighborhood with my actual ring I just turn the diamond into my palm so it looks like a big plain band.

Mine is from a pawn shop but I absolutely love it! We could never habve afforded something like this in a retail store. FI negotiated with them for about 2 months as well and got it for a steal. It was appraised at 6 times what we paid for it – we nearly passed out when they told us!!

@MrsGo:  Holy crap, that’s gorgeous. Is that an OEC?

I wish we’d thought to look at pawn shops! A friend got a gorgeous Tacori setting for super cheap from one. Jerk. lol
