I’m not a guy, but what I would do in your situation would be to buy the ring and stone separately. Find the band you want to get at a jeweler and ask them if they are able to do a pink princess cut diamond with it. If not, then you can get a loose stone from somewhere and have them place it in the band for you 🙂 Good luck in your search — I hope you are able to find what you are looking for!

I would Google “lab created pink diamond” and look at the options. Then I’d get on Etsy.com and find some people that do titanium rings and start talking to them. (You can narrow etsy down by location too, if you want someone you can visit in person. Which I would, in this situation. 🙂

I got this from a google search, do not know anything about the reputability of this site, but looks like they have a section on website to customize a ring. If you were able to buy the diamond separately maybe they could set it for you?

yep – that’s what I would do.

i’ve been pretty darn picky about my ring (eep) and we got the stone i wanted on its own, and then having a ring created.

i fell in love with a band but it was only sold in platinum, so the jewellery is making one for us in yellow gold.

it’ll take a while, and it’s a bit of a faff, but it’ll be soooo worth it!

diamondsbylauren.com has a lot of fancy colored diamonds… They can custom make rings and they have a lot of rings pre-set with pink stones.

I was going to suggest a pink sapphire too, but I don’t know your budget.

You *do* realize that a natural pink diamond is going to be ridiculously expensive, as in, far above and beyond what a normal colorless white diamond would be, right? I don’t know what your situation is, but unless you’re a Rockefeller, I hope she doesn’t mind a tiny stone. Here are prices for natural pink diamonds:

Have you considered pink moissanite? It’s beautiful, is nearly as hard/tough as diamond, won’t cloud or change properties like one of those 90s-era Pink Ice cubic zirconia stones will, and it’s reasonably priced:

Okay I’ve tried to reply on this three times already and the page keeps reloading!

A pink diamond is crazy expensive (.17K = 2-3K)  Does she care about center stone size?

Here are links from google, I don’t know about authenticity or any of that, some enhanced ones

These are on some random link, random link 2.

And here are sapphires which I tend to prefer as they are a richer color pink than the diamonds usually, intensly pink diamond are an arm and a leg. 

Sapphire link 1, sapphire link 2, sapphire link 3 and peak-a-boo sapphire.

And heres a wiki on pink diamond enagagement rings.  Maybe you can find some useful information there.  It looks like on this link they show Zales has some enhanced ones, that might be worth checking out.  Also you could always buy a whole ring from Zales and then switch out the diamond and put something else in the setting you have left over.  

I don’t know about your girl but an enhanced stone wouldn’t bother me especially if it was the difference between that and no pink diamond ring at all. (If I was that adamant about a pink diamond.)  Your are probably going to have a really hard time finding an affortable pink diamond that is over the quater carat mark even if its enhanced so if she’s fine with that then proceed.  (Or of course if you have a higher budget and can find a way to afford a bigger one.)

Oooo – I just had this emailed to me today! I’m a numbers girl – and men usually like specs sheets too. Maybe this will help you. Who dosen’t love a graph? 🙂

Just so you know that we aren’t trying to tell you to replace your girl’s dream ring with something crappy. You can see moissanite and sapphires are right up there on the hardness scale. Durable and long lasting. Very good for engagement rings.

Morganite maybe not so much? It’s a 7.5 to 8. 

As a reference, a friend of mine trying to have a ring custom made for his girl using diamonds and peridot. He was talked out of using the peridot (hardness 6.5-7) because the jewler was afraid it wouldn’t last.

I second diamondsbylauren.com. I’ve heard nothing but great things and if they don’t currently have what you are looking for you can call the guy, give him the specs of what you would like to buy and he hunts for you.

I know it’s already been said by=ut pink diamonds are some of the most expensive diamonds you can buy. If it’s within your budget – FANTASTIC! But in case you weren’t aware…here’s a link to a .52ct purplish-pink princess cut. Cost? $39K. Again. If that is figured in to your budget and you don’t want an alternative that’s fine. But if it isn’t you may want to consider the alternatives suggested.
